Rabbis Mantel and family: Herman, Hugo, Louis in Far Rockaway, New York and Jerusalem #usa #israel

emmabcole@...
 

Hello

I am tracing the family tree of the Friedmann family from Hungary and Vienna who came to New York in the 1930s. One of the branches, Hugo Mantel and his wife Edith and son Jonathan moved to Israel in the 1950s, would anyone be able to help find out about any other family they had in Israel? Hugo died in 1983, Edith in 2001 and Jonathan in 2002.

Hugo's brother Louis Mantel was a Hebrew teacher and died in 1996 in Far Rockaway, New York. I am trying to work out if he married or had any children, but I can't find any in the records. I would also love to know more about his aunt Margit Friedmann who was married to my great uncle Miksa Weisz. Although they divorced in 1929 in Vienna, Margit kept her married name, so died as Margit Weiss. She also lived in Far Rockaway and died there in April 1976. Nobody in the family knows what happened to Miksa, it is one of my ambitions to find that out too. I don't think he went to America and could have ended up anywhere after his divorce. He didn't return to his daughter from his 2nd wife (who died in the Spanish flu in 1918), she was looked after by her grandparents in Budapest.

Would anyone know more about the Mantels in Israel, or about Louis and Margit in Far Rockaway?

Huge gratitude if anyone is able to help
Best wishes
Emma


Jewish Prison Commander - Kharkov 1923 #ukraine

Jules Feldman
 

According to the family narrative Yakov KARLINSKY known as Yasha was
arrested in 1922-1923 as a capitalist and enemy of the people and held in a
prison in Kharkov.
He was fortunate - the prison commander was a Jew whom he had met a few
years previously in Palestine. The commander let him out of prison and he
was able to leave the Soviet Union.
This is a long shot : who was the prison commander?

Re: Moses Hyam or Hyam Moses - name reversal in early 19th century #unitedkingdom

jlevy2008@...
 

Thank you, Bob.

You have confirmed what I suppose I already suspected. People did reverse their secular given and family names. But it's great to hear some concrete examples.

I once knew a guy in the UK with the surname MORRIS. His grandfather or great-father appeared in secular records as Breslauer MORRIS. That was a pretty obvious case of name reversal. It did not take long to find the record of the adoption of the surname BRESLAUER by a man called Moritz.

I forgot to mention that I think for exchanging with other people purposes, a code for source is a great idea. I would append it to the end of my filename.

I am sorry to hear about that as my maternal ancestors (Brantz) have some beautiful monuments!!! Fortunately we have photos of them all (taken  about 2006). They were erected in the 1920's. The last time I visited them was about 1988. At that time they had an active open office and a new section.

Itsik, Itzik,   and any spelling that is phonetically similar to that or Yitzchak or Isaac.   


Re: From Which Viewpoint Are Cousins Named? #general #names

Russ Maurer
 

Each additional generation makes the relationship more distant or further "removed" to use the lingo. Thus if two people (A & B) are, say 2nd cousins, then A's child and B are 2nd cousins, once removed.

Re: IAJGS Salutes! Shalom Bronstein #announcements

Sharon Rottman
 

I would like to congratulate the IAJGS on awarding this recognition to such a worthy individual.
Shalom and his lovely wife, Fran welcomed us to Israel in 1991 smoothing our Aliyah process.
Shalom's genealogy work is legendary and of such value to our community and I have a personal story on that note:
One day he called and asked if i had a copy of my ggrandfather's signature.
When I answered in the negative, he informed me that he had obtained a copy of his grandparents marriage certificate from Philadelphia and no other then my ggrandfather, Rabbi Joseph Grossman, was the officiated Rabbi.
When he later held one of my grandsons at the little boy's bris, I was overwhelmed by this connection between the generations and our families discovered by Shalom.

I was privileged to this very personal assistance in my search for family roots but I can only imagine how many people have been assisted by Shalom's work over the years, 

Keep up the wonderful work!

Re: From Which Viewpoint Are Cousins Named? #general #names

You and a relative are Nth cousins K times removed, where your common ancestor is N+1 generations before the older of the two of you, and the two of you are K generations apart.  So for example, first cousins share grandparents (2 generations before both of you, so N = 1, and you're the same generation, so K = 0: first cousins 0 times removed).  Second cousins share great-grandparents (3 generations back, so N = 2).
The great-granddaughter of your great-great-grandfather is 3 generations after your great-great-grandfather, and you're 4 generations after him.  So N+1 = 3, and K = 4 - 3 = 1, so you are 2nd cousins (N = 2), once removed.
These relationships are symmetric, because N is always calculated from the older-generation relative.

I just discovered my great grandfather's surname was TAJWIL and the

anyone please tell me how to pronounce this name? Is it Yiddish,
Polish, Russian or whatever? Would there be an English or Yiddish
equivalent of this name?
Also, I have two different first name versions for, what I believe,
is the same person. One is spelled Uszer and the other is Vicher.
Could this be the same name?

Many thanks,

Dates and countries - or language - would be of great help for this guesswork


I had two possibilities come to mind

1, Tevele - diminutive for Tuvia Tuvia being "Tuv" or "Tov" -
Good and "ia" being God

2, Teufel
