Required:Specific reply #general

Makaf Tutzingen <tutsingen@...>
 

Dear sirs/madams/whatever,

A few days ago, I posted a very specific question regarding
the name SPIRO. I asked whether there is any connection
whatsoever between the Jewish Spiro and the Greek Spiro.
I mentioned that, as far as I knew, the Jewish SPIRO was
connected to Shapiro and that the Greek Spiro was connected
to Spiridion. I did, however,definitely want to know whether
there was a connection of any sort between Shapiro /
Spiro / Speyer / Sapir /Shafir et alia group on the one hand,
and between the Spiro / Spiridion pair on the other.

As yet, I have not received a specific reply to my specific
question!

If you definitely know that there IS a connection, then say
so, explaining the connection. If you definitely know that
there IS NOT a connection, then say so, and why, and I'll
accept the coincidence. If you can suggest a good and
reliable place to check whether there is a connection, that
will also be acceptable.

If you do NOT know, one way or another, please leave the
matter well alone, and do NOT, I beg of you, go into the
interesting but well covered history of the connection
between SPIRO, SHAPIRO, SPEYER, and so forth.

Thank you,
Macky Tutsingen.

I do not want to "rain on anyone's parade" <g>, but in the 1920's,
thirty (30) Jewish families >from the shtetl of Pusalotas, Lithuania
were living in Jacksonville, Florida. I am biased, of course, (my
father came >from Pusalotas) but can anyone top that?
Howard Margol
It was suggested that I try to top Howard's count of 30 families in
Jacksonville, FL with a count of families that moved to Bellingham WA
from NE Lithuania. I can't quite do that ... yet. But then
Jacksonville is 10 times larger than Bellingham. To make an accurate
comparison, I should have looked at the 1920 census, but it is not
indexed here and therefore is a little more difficult to review.
Using the 1910 census as a guide, however, I found 24 different
households in Bellingham representing 15 different surnames >from the
shtetls of Skopishok, Rakishok, and Panemunok. They were all within
about 10 miles of each other, and the families were all intermarried.
from Skopishok we have: BLOCK, LIPOT (changed to FRIEDMAN
and PERLSTEN/PEARLSTEIN), GOFFE/JAFFE, GLAZER, HORWITZ,
SCHUMAN, and TALL/THAL. >from Rakishok came ADIRIM, BEROLSKI,
GRIEFF, LEVINE, and POPLACK. >from Panemunok we had BOON
(became BEAN here) and SHURE. Other families, including the
ABRAMOVITZ family >from Rakishok, came after 1910.

( for those who have difficulty with Lithuanian names:
for gicven names take off the -is, -as, -a, -is endings
fro second names take off --icius, -as ,endings
for females take off -iene. Nasle probably ==widow.
substitute G for H( e.g. girs ( Gersh for Hirs)
