Re: Help in translation of gravestone #translation

binyaminkerman@...
 

Here is buried our dear father, a man who chased righteousness and kindness, the Rabbi Mordechai son of Reb Yechiel of blessed memory MICHALOVER. Died Purim 5671 at 67 years.
Why were you taken before you filled your days,
You did much for all downtrodden who sought your help,
You went on the path of kindness all the days of your life,
For mercy and graciousness filled your heart,
G-d should pay you your wages and according to your deeds,
When you come to shelter in the shade of your creator,
Rest in peace where you were laid down,
All who know your name will remember you for good,
The life and kindness you did in your life,
The days of your years were 67 but you did much,
You are fortunate you ascended to heaven with your good deeds,
To the G-dfearing and all who turned to your salvation.
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life.


The title Rabbi and Reb are used for Honor and do not mean he was necessarily a Rabbi. The holiday of Purim is the 14th of Adar. The epitaph spells out Mordechai son of Yechiel.

Re: Tiktin Family of Rabbis #poland

Jeremy Lichtman
 

The pamphlet "The Oldest Jewish Families in Czestochowa" by Janusz Spyra contains numerous references to the Tiktin family that may be of use.

From the footnotes there, there are references to individuals in the family in the book "Biographisches Handbuch der Rabbiner",
ed. Michael Brocke and Julius Carlebach, Munich 2009 (BHR) I/2.

Specifically: "Biographical entries for Abraham (dec’d. 1820), Salomon (dec’d. 1843) and Gedalia (dec’d. 1886) Tiktin in BHR I/2, pp.
856–859."

The Gedalia mentioned above is the son of Abraham, born circa 1808 in Czestochowa, and evidently named after his grandfather.

It appears that the Lewkowicz > Kohn family of Czestochowa may be renamed Tiktins as well, as several members of that family occasionally used the name on documents.

Re: Jews with Christian names #names

David Harrison <djh_119@...>
 

The usage of "Christian Name" for "Given Name" was normal in Britain but started to die in about 1975.  Round about that year official documents started to change from the one to the other when asking for the given names for passports or for candidates to be elected to public Office and later on for Clubs and societies.  I remember a friend of my wife  (her husband was the Dean of one of our three Cathedrals) asked me "Mr Harrison what is your Christian Name?"  To which I replied "I have not got one, Ruth, but my first name is David.' likewise in about1995 a Skiing Instructor made a similar request and at the end of that course handed me a course completion certificate which stated Christian Name David; I handed it back saying "i told you that I am Jewish and do not have a Christian Name"  That summer I met him again and he told me that the awarding club had discussed this at their AGM and were not making any change to their certificates.  I therefore reported this to the SYHA who had organised that course. I do not think that any religion has as much as 50% of the population of Birmingham, we have many sorts of Christians at least 4 types of Jew, a variety of different versions of Islam, Sikhs, Hindus and Buddhists, Humanists and my old University has had a Pagan Chaplain for a couple of years.

I believe that the quote was taken out of context.  The original comment was made by a non-Jewish woman who referred to first names or given names as "Christian names" and the comment was that we do not use "Christian names", we do use first names or given names.  The discussion was not which first/given names are "Christian", in the original post the reference was to all  given names.

My son in law Benjamin Sanderson has one DNA match on Ancestry with surname Schneirow.
Do you know the town of origin?

We know Sanderson was an adopted English form. The original surname is not known. But the place Isaac Sanderson son of Abraham Moses came from was Polish speaking and I have wondered about Pultusk.
We know his gt grandfather Isaac Sanderson had a brother who passed through Liverpool on the way to Chicago shortly before Edith was born, that is 1912. So that date dosnt fit with yours.

Hi, 

There was actually another person asking about the Laniado family (from Livorno Italy, I believe). My only comment is that there were Laniados from Syria (Sam Laniado from Brooklyn NY sent a congratulations via telegram to my parents when they got married in 1951). 

So sorry that I can't be of help.

ZIMBLER - Lazarus (Eliezer) and Rose/Rosie (Raizel) - London 1911 #lithuania #latvia #unitedkingdom

Eliezer and Raizel are my great great grandparents on my father's side. They were living in Mount Street, Whitechapel, London in 1911 with their 10-month old daughter Rebecca (Sarah). Eliezer may have died in 1936, but in any case they were bombed out of Whitechapel during WWII and ended up in Leicester, where Rose (as she was then known) opened a deli in Highfields Street.

But that's all we know. The 1911 census states that Raizel came from Kovno, Lithiania, but we don't have her maiden name. Eliezer also came from Russia, but it's hard to decipher the census writing. Looks like it could be Tucham or Iuchan?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello. I would like to join to research info about my 4 x g grandfather Abraham ben Gedaliah Tiktin 1764 - 1820. With thx.


Looking for information about Naftali (Eli) HERTZ RASKIN #belarus

S.raskin@...
 

In the last ten years I am searching for information about my great grand grandfather Naftali (Eli) Hertz Raskin, who lived in the village of El'nya, close to Hotimsk, Mogilev, Belarus, and was a cantor and schohet. He was born around 1840 and died around 1923.

Naftali Eli Hertz Raskin was married to FEIGA ZLOTINA (born around 1850 and died around 1916), and they had at least 6 daughters and 6 sons; AIZIK ITZHAK RASKIN, PERL RASKINA HAIKINA, ABRAM YAKOV RASKIN, RISSI RASKINA FRADKIN GROISSMAN, BORUCH ARON RASKIN, LIBA RASKINA KRUGLYAKOVA, DAVID RASKIN, NECHAMA/FREIDA RASKINA, LEIB LEV RASKIN, HAE BELLA BEILE RASKINA GODLINA, GENUH RASKIN AND ETEL ETA RASKINA ZLOTINA.

During all these years I learned that there are thousands of RASKINS spread worldwide, and not all of them are relatives of each other. As you know, one modern way to check if we are from the same Raskin clade, is to check our Y chromosome DNA. I did my test, and besides showing that I totally match the Cohen genetic markers, it gave me a very good idea of my paternal Raskin ancestral in Russia. The male Russian relatives who indeed are my relatives and have the last name Raskin, also tested their Y DNA, and we share the same Y DNA haplotype, as expected.

If you have ANY information about NAFTALI ELI HERTZ RASKIN, please email me at s.raskin@...

Re: Tiktin Family of Rabbis #poland

sfalkjd@...
 

The "Biographisches Handbuch der Rabbiner" is a good resource.  I do not think you will find any useful information from contacting the very talented Bente Kahan in Wroclaw. Genealogy and historical records are not her expertise.  Likewise, the Wroclaw Jewish community does not have any particular resources to address such questions.

Abraham Gedaliah TIKTIN is included in the Glogau Jewish family register from 1812.  There, his birth date is given as 1 Dec 1751, much more likely since he married on 13 Dec 1771 and had his first (known to me) son in 1773.  R. Abraham TIKTIN went to Glogau about 1800 and I believe he was there until he went to Breslau about 1816.

Finding information about his father Gedaliah will be a challenge..  Rabbinic texts might be source.

It seems to be a card of displaced persons during world war II. Arrived in Barcelona on Mar 23, 1944 and he was moved to Lerida (Lleida) on June 23 1944, or arrived in Lerida on June 23, 1944 and from Lerida he was moved to Barcelona on August 23, 1944. Do not understand the name of the place on Nov 1st, 1944. He was sent back to France on May 4, 1945.  The other people were Sarah (aunt) and Therese (cousin)
