If you go to the Jewishgen Memorial Plaque Database  
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/
Search for  Yocheved as a given name.   You will see the more than 100 instances of  corresponding civil names. There are many different ones, no single one stands out.

Seeking Descendants of Doris Levine born 14 July 1928 in New York #usa

Chilady18
 

We are seeking info on Doris Levine born in New York on 14 July 1928 or her descendants.  Doris' parents Zendel and Elke Lejfer and grandmother Frejda Lejfer arrived in New York on the SS Zeeland in January 1921 originally from Wysoko, Grodniensk. They were joining husband/father Szewl Lejfer Lewin in New York.  Zendel Lejfer changed his name to Sam Levine and moved from New York to Chicago some time after Doris' birth. If you have info on this family I would appreciate it if you would contact me.

My great grandmother came to the US and died shorty after her arrival.  Four granddaughters were named after her.  One was "Yetta"  The other three
used "Eunice" which a somewhat popular name at the time.

Re: Looking for a reference, for help in free translation, for an archival document, written in the Polish language. #poland

Judith Franzin 's book A Translation Guide to 19th Century Polish -Language Civil Registration Documents, is one resource that I have used.  Another is to join Facebook's Tracing the Tribe group and post your document there, and someone probably will translate it.  There also is a translators group there.  Regardless of how you see social media - the genealogy groups there are worth being a member - and membership is free.  Other groups are Jewish Genealogy Portal and Jews from Poland.

Re: Jewish nannies from Europe #general

sohail.husain@...
 

A postscript to my earlier response .... I mentioned that many thousands of those Germans and Austrians who arrived in London were 'registered' at Bloomsbury House, including a large number of young women who then went into domestic service. The files created were lost after the war, but in the late 1980s a significant number, relating to about 35,000 individuals, were fortuitously rediscovered. These are now in the custody of World Jewish Relief (HQ in London) and have been digitally scanned and indexed. Amongst them was the file on my mother, Karola Grünebaum (DOB 12 May 1921, Offenbach), It is extremely interesting and revealing, not only including papers related to her arrival in 1939, but also to what happened to her in subsequent years up until 1943. WJR is keen to link the files with the descendants of the people who are documented, so it is well worth getting in touch to find out if your relative's file is one of those that has been found.

As others have mentioned, the National Archives (Kew, London) also may hold significant information, for example related to internment, naturalisation and the '1939 Register for England and Wales' (equivalent to a census).

Re: Translation needed from Romanian #translation

Hi Deborah,
The testimony is not about Kopai Gorod but of the sufferings of the Jews deported to Transnistria. Kopai Gorod is mentioned in a short paragraph:
" Also in Moghilev we were put in houses destroyed by bombardments, After a short while, the gendarms (Romanian police forces, my note) took us to Kopai Gorod, Romanka. There, we were put in a big stable. After a short while, the typhus caused ravages. The dead corpses remained for days among the living people, there was no one to bury them. About 300-400 people in this stable died. From there we were taken to...."

In Conservative and Reform congregations, it’s called “Hebrew School”.  Most Orthodox kids go do “Day School”.   Some Chabad groups call their schools Cheder.
