The spellings are arbitrary. However, Cohen (and its Russian equivalent Kagan, due to Russian having no "h") is probably the most common Jewish name, like Smith or Jones in America, You cannot make any assumptions about relationship based on the names. Indeed, not all people with that name are Kohanim.

Hi, 

One word slipped from Eliyahu's translation.

The Hebrew name of the deceased is Yom Tov. The corresponding Yiddish doublon is Lipa. (Lipman is also very common as Yiddish doublon for Yom Tov). 
From Lipa, we see the choice of Louis as English name.

Best regards ,

Looking for George Weiss, son Jeno and Malvina Weiss, born Budapest 1938? Living in Be'er Sheva? #hungary #israel

emmabcole@...
 

Making progress in trying to trace Malvina and Jeno Weiss and family thanks to the wonderful help of Valentin Lupu (I am forever grateful Valentin). So Valentin managed to find Malvina's gravestone in Be'er Sheva, with the joy of finding that she was buried next to Jeno, who must have survived in spite of the official records suggesting he didn't. In addition, he discovered that a son, George Weiss, was an inheritor. The inscription on the gravestones suggests that George was not the only child, and that there are grandchildren too. So now I am looking for both George and his sibling. George may have stayed in Be'er Sheva, there is also a chance that he or a sibling returned to Hungary in the 1960s. If anyone knows how I might find George and his family, I would be deeply grateful, thank you. Emma Cole

I am looking for a way to access the yizchor book for Krzepice, a small town in southwestern Poland.  I understand that there is one copy in the Harvard University library. 

Any help would be appreciated.

Speaker: Steven Brock

 
VIRTUAL MEETING: View from home
 
Wednesday, 16 December 2020

For those tracing their family tree, gravestones can be an incredible source of information. They can provide the researcher with key details relating to their ancestors, including names, dates, places and references to previous generations. In this presentation, JGS-Hamilton member Steven Brock will discuss Jewish gravestones and their importance in genealogy. He will speak to the origins of the Matzevah and how to read and interpret the information carved into the memorial. He will then address The JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR); how to use it and JGS-Toronto / Hamilton’s contributions to this remarkable database.

Steven Brock has been researching his family roots in Poland and Russia for over 20 years and has traced his ancestors back to the late 1700s. He has been a member of the Hamilton Jewish Genealogical Society since its inception in 2004 and served on its Board of Directors as Treasurer for 12 years. In addition to his own research, he has been involved in several projects including the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, the Canadian Naturalization Database Indexing, and the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR).

Re: "Comments: f, byl propuscen?" #belarus #records

mvayser@...
 

David,
The comment means that he was missed during the previous revision "byl propushchen" = "was missed".  Not sure what the "f" part is, it's not a word, maybe short for something.  Can you post a photo of this record?

Re: Vaniovice, Galicia? #galicia #ukraine

Renee Steinig
 

Gesher Galicia's Galician Town Locator
(https://www.geshergalicia.org/galician-town-locator/) lists a good
possibility -- Waniowice, in the Jewish administrative district of
Sambor. Chances are that it's the place that Google Maps calls
Van'ovychi and the JewishGen Gazetteer lists as Van’ovitse -- about 5
miles southwest of Sambor/Sambir, Ukraine.

Both the All Galicia Database (https://search.geshergalicia.org) and
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland (jri-poland.org) have records for this
town.

.. re.: parents of Mollie Lieberman nee Cohen- born in Russia 1886- passed away in the Bronx in 1937. Her father's name was Veivel/Weivel/William, and her mother's name was Asna Popensky. I was wondering whether the two had children other than Mollie, Isadore and Benjamin. Finally, did Veivel and Asna immigrate to the U.S.?
Thank you for helping me further. I cannot seem to find information.
