Re: Do these siblings have the same mother? A Yiddish given name question #names

It also could be 2 or even 3 mothers.  My ggf was widowed twice and possibly 3 times before he married my ggm (his last wife). He had children with all of them. His first child was born in 1870 and the first of 4 children with his final wife was born in 1880. So it is very possible that there was more than 1 wife.

What a lovely gift that would be!
Actually I couldn't think of a greater gift and then suddenly someone very close to me bought me a DNA kit for Christmas (a few years ago). I have to say I have enjoyed that at some points even more than my tree and research, and it has opened other doors I didn't know existed or thought about.

There is of course the Welsh actress Catherine Zeta Jones. This is the only instance I know of this name.

Jill Whitehead
 

In English Katty is a short form of Katherine or Katie. Family members who later became Kate or Katherine were named after Creine (also this became Karen) or Gittel.

It probably looked like, Makszin, in Polish the "sz" is pronounced as "sh".

Re: Do these siblings have the same mother? A Yiddish given name question #names

I visited my local Mormon parking lot today and got Morris' marriage record, in which he names his mother as Agnesh Karlin. It seems to me that both Nussa and Gossie could be variations or diminutives of that name, so I think I'm comfortable concluding they are all one woman.
Thank you for your responses.

Grandparents surnames KOHAN/LEVI #names #lithuania

Marilyn Weinman
 


Greetings,

I've just recently had some documents partially translated, and this document, which I believe was either an immigration paper, or possibly a marriage license, and was written in Lithuanian, had the names of KOHAN and LEVI on it, as given last names. I don't have any grandparents with the last names of Cohen or Levy in my family, but rather ARONOWITZ/ ARONOVSKY, JABLONSKI or other derivations of said name on my mom's side, and ENGELMAN/ ENGELMANN and DAVIDOVIC/ DAVIDOVICH on my dad's side. 

Is it possible that this was a marriage license, and the names just are telling me that my grandparents were the son and daughter of.....with no last name given ?
Can anyone explain to me how or what the names of KOHAN/ LEVI may mean to my families surnames, other than they were both from the class of Priests ??

Thanks,
Marilyn

The woman's name of ZETA #names

Marilyn Weinman
 

Hello all !

I recently had a document partially translated, and the name Zeta came up. I checked the Jewish database of names, but nothing came up. Does anyone know what the woman's name of ZETA may be in English ?

Thanks,

Re: Marriage license needed: Brooklyn, 1926 #records #usa

Richard Werbin
 

If it is a 2nd marriage, then the marriage license application will tell you what happened to the first marriage.
The marriage certificate will not provide that information.

I think that I have seen that the NYC Municipal Archives now has an online request form for the license.

Re: Records of Landsleitschaften in New York City #records #usa

You have the wrong repository.  Landsmanshaftn records are most likely to be found at YIVO (Center for Jewish History).  Of course they are closed during the pandemic but you can look at their catalog on-line.  Or go to https://jgsny.org/searchable-databases/indexes-to-jewish-organizations/yivo-landsmanshaftn-collection to see what is included in YIVO's landsmanshaften collection.

I'm also interested in what you find out.  My great-grandmother's maiden name was "Charmatz."  Thanks.

What is the name "Katty" short for? #names

lisab5308@...
 

I came across the birth certificate for a relative born in NYC in 1898 with the first name entered as "Katty".  Her parents were from a small town in Galicia (now Ukraine).  Would this be a Yiddish name and if so, what would be the English equivalent?  Is it a form of Katie?  Thanks for your help.

I don't know much about this family, but NARODETSKY was the maiden name of the wife of one of my relative's brothers, Mitchell Schwartz.

Re: Do these siblings have the same mother? A Yiddish given name question #names

Phil Karlin
 

So some additional information: there were 3 other siblings for whom I haven't found marriage or death certs with parents' names. They are:
Peal, b. 1881
Leah, b. 1884
Meyer, b. 1887

So I come back to the differences in names as the primary puzzle.

Re: Ancestry World Explorer subscription #general

Marion Werle
 

I have had a World Explorer subscription for years. I have family who settled in the U.S., Canada, and UK, among others. Also the outbound UK and Hamburg ship manifests are extremely useful. The latter two collections are not available on FamilySearch. FS should always be part of your searches, regardless. Not all collections are overlapping.
