Date   

Re: Help with translation of a plaque #translation

kassells@...
 

Hello, 

I am reading the date differently. 
The year at the bottom is 1951 which fits nicely with the part that David did not translate:
He Tav Shin Yud Aleph = 5711.

Before those letters there is another letter: Beth. It makes the month of the death Adar II. 5691 did not have an Adar II. 5711 did. 
Now let's turn to the number of the month  David reads 16 because March 5 1931 fits 16 Adar 5691. 
The second letter is a Vav but 16 is traditionally written as Tet Zain. 
My reading is 26.
26 Adar II 5711 however is April 3 1951  This is not aligned with the line with civil date.
I am curious to hear further ideas.
Simcha is the name of Samuel's father. In Ashkenazi communities Simcha is a male name. 

Best regards

Pre-paid to sister, and met at the pier.  Sounds like the sister may have initiated the steamship tickets purchase from Philadelphia.  If you have access to Ancestry.com, you might search some of the ticket sales records at https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/1366/   They may be searchable elsewhere too (on Ancestry the source is listed as JewishGen :-).

Looking for family of WERNER MENDEL (or VOGEL of NiederSaulheim) #germany

vogelko
 

Hello -
I came across a photo at the US Holocaust Museum, which was donated by Werner MENDEL who was born in Mainz. The photo was of Leopold and Sigmund VOGEL in NiederSaulheim, in 1935.
Evidently, Mr. Werner died in 2005, so I am looking for any members of his family who might have further information about the VOGEL family of this area (Mainz / NiederSaulheim / Jugenheim).
(Please reply privately because I don't read the digests as diligently as I should.)
Many thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.

Re: Help with translation of a plaque #translation

I agree that this stone unfortunately has a number of 'typos', beginning with the unusual spelling of both the name Shmuel and the name Simcha.

I believe that I can clear up the March vs. April date confusion mentioned above. 

There is the name of the month, Adar.  Further along, there is the year.  Between these two appears the letter 'bet'.  If the 'bet' is considered as part of the month, then this would make it "Adar II", and indeed push the date a month out into April.  If, however, the 'bet' is considered as part of the year, representing the prefix 'in', the translation becomes, "died on the 26th of Adar in the year ___".  The letter 'bet' is closer to the year than to the month, so I believe that it means 'in'.  Of course, there is still an error, as the correct name of the month in this case is Adar I, and Adar should have been followed by the letter Alef.

The 26th of Adar I in the year 5711 began at sunset on March 4th, 1951, and ended at sunset on March 5th.

Here lies [this appears twice, in each of the Jewish stars]

Reb Meir son of Reb Yehudah Eedel

the Cohen Krivitsky.  He went to his world [passed away] on the 29th day of Iyar

of the year 5701. 

His wife, his sons, his daughters, and his sons-in-law mourn eternally upon his death.

May his soul be bound up in the bond of life.
==============================================
Note that 'Reb' is an honorific; it does not mean rabbi.

His name is pronounced MAY-eer.   The second part of his father's name, Eedel, is Yiddish for the Hebrew name Yehudah.

The 29th of Iyar, 5701, began at sunset on May 25th, 1941, and ended at sunset on the 26th.

This matches the date in the Spanish at the bottom, which also says that he died at the age of 55, and is mourned by his wife and children.

The word that I have translated as "sons-in-law" might also include daughters-in-law.

In addition to Ken's reasoning, in this case the wife was the one who had a family member to go to.  If it had been a brother instead of a sister, maybe the husband would have come first.  But to send him to live with her sister-- that would have been unacceptable under Jewish customs.   So she and the kids came (after all , the woman takes care of the children).  Once she has safely arrived and is established then he can come.

Balti vs Balta... what is connection #bessarabia #ukraine

Yefim Kogan
 

Hello everybody, 

I got a question from our member if there is a any connection between Balti and Balta...  is it the same place, or what, and I replied,  but also decided to send my reply to the whole group.

There are not two but three towns with similar names:..like Balti.

 

1) Beltsi or currently written Balti – that is one of the largest towns in Republic of Moldova, used to be a center of Yassy and later Beltsy uezd (county) in Bessarabia gubernia (province).

 

2) Balta was an uezd center in Podolia gubernia.  It is very close to Bessarabia and current Moldova.  Several towns, which were in Balta uezd before 1917 are now in Republic of Moldova, like Rybnitsa.

 

3) To bring more confusion to the picture, there is a town of Belz in Galicia, now in Ukraine… pronunciation of towns 1) and 3) in Yiddish is the same "Belts"

Here are these three towns on the Google map.

 

 To add, there are families which lived in Balti, Bessarabia, but were registered in Balta, Podolia, and visa versa.

In Bessarabia there are some other towns with same or similar names.

All the best,

Happy Thanksgiving.

Re: Help with translation of a plaque #translation

Hi,
There is a mistake with the dates: the last line in Spanish says: "Fall. 5.3.1951 a los 27 años" = Perished on 5th March 1951, at 27 years old. But the Hebrew date tells that the month was "Adar B" (the exact day is not clear) wich corresponded to the month of April at that year.
The Hebrew writing "ת.נ.צ.ב.ה" (or at its the correct spelling: תנצב"ה) is an acronym for "Soul be bound in the bond of life".
