Re: The Hebrew translation for the name Yetta #names

greenjar@...
 

Another option: My grandmother was known as Yetta which is the name on the ship manifest, what we called her, the name on her US marriage license, and was the English name on her gravestone, but the Hebrew name on her gravestone was Tamara. She was from Lithuania.

Hi from Paris,
Dear Catherine,
I hope you speak French...
Concerning fate of Jews in Nice (Alpes-Maritimes) during WWII,  I already replied by my post  #643817, date 06/03/20.
Please look at it.
I attached the Finding Aid of WWII archives in "Archives Départementales of Alpes Maritimes / A.D.A.M.), including archives about foreign Jews.
And some papers by various historian.
My great parents survived in this area from 1942 to 1943 (as long as Nice had been under Italian authority).

As a general advice, please consider :
  • start by searching this forum with some keywords : perhaps your question has already be answered in the previous years...
  • a great effort has been made in French "Archives Départementales" (main land France is split in 95 "départements" since French Revolution") for cataloging their archives. When we, French historian or genealogy detective, discuss together, we are always surprised by what we can find in these archives. But you can only search if you have some knowledge that your ancestor could have left some traces in this particular département.

My grandmother's name was also Yetta.  On her gravestone in Hebrew it was written as Etyl and in the JRI-Poland record for her birth it was Ettel.

Re: where is Chevatz ? #france #poland #russia

David Choukroun
 

Many thanks to all 

With several private answers, I concluded that Chevatz is misepelled from Cheratz and : 

Cheratz is probably Sieradz, Sieradz, Kalisz, Russian Empire

Dinskavoldi is probably Zduńska Wola, Sieradz,, Kalisz, Russian Empire

I had an Aunt Jutta, born in Germany. I wonder if that is related to the name Yetta.

There are literally thousands of websites about German military history, records, personnel, organization, genealogy, archives, uniforms, medals, equipment, and biographies. That's not counting physical materials such as books, references, encyclopedias, directories, dictionaries, journals, articles, bibliographies, symposium proceedings, and biographies. A good reference librarian can help.

Don't dismiss non-Jewish genealogy groups and their sites. FEETHS should be high on your list. example:
https://feefhs.org/resource/germany

Did you look on Cyndi's List? That's always a good starting point for locating online genealogical related resources by category.

This illustrates the sad fact that the monuments are often engraved by people who do not know the Hebrew alphabet and simply use templates to engrave something that they do not understand.

hsalmenson@...
 

When I look at my grandfathers family tree, it appears that when born he was named Levi Itzchak Zalmanson. In the all Lithuania revision list it it is given as Leyvik Zalmanson (assuming) I have the correct person. Is that an accept format.

I know that Srol is used for Israel, is Srul also considered the same.

Thanks.

Finding a PDF version of Heppner/Herzberg 1914 book on Posen #germany

AJ <the_ravaj@...>
 

Might anyone be able to direct me towards a downloadable pdf of the Heppner/Herzberg book "Aus Vergangenheit und Gegenwart der Juden in Posen; nach gedrucken und ungedruckten Quellen" from 1914? I already have the link https://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/show-content/publication/edition/14837?id=14837, but it keeps crashing my computer. And I cannot use the .djvu files because my computer can't read them (even though I have downloaded the correct app).

So if there is a link, & it is shareable. I would be most grateful for the information.

Re: What is this Hebrew name? #names

Irwin Keller
 

Hi Steven,

Alas, I've seen this a number of times in Jewish cemeteries (including just yesterday). The engraver used a tzade instead of an ayin. They look similar to a non-Hebrew speaker. And the family approved it, not realizing it was wrong. The name should be nun-ayin-chaf-ayin: Neche. Neche bat Natan. 

It's a shame; the error will live into perpetuity! But at least you know what to call her!

Shabbat Shalom

you can go to ronarons.com to search his database of Jewish inmates of Sing Sing. I think he also had a book about tracing relatives who have been in various kinds of public institutions.

Re: What is this Hebrew name? #names

Shimona Kushner
 

Dear Steven:  There is an obvious error in the headstone.  There is no Hebrew name with those letters.  The letters as written are "nun", "tzadi", "kaf", "tzadi".  The word you wrote would mean that the second and last letters are "ayins".  However, if you look at the last line on the headstone where it has the abbreviation for "Tehi nishmata netzura betzror hahayim" (may her soul be bound up in the binds of life), the third letter in Hebrew is a "tzadi" which is exactly like what is given in your great aunt's name.  If it would be Neche as you wrote it would not be Hebrew but Yiddish and those two letters would be an "ayin".  Still doesn't sound like any name I am familiar with. Hope this helps.

If you can read french, you should take a look at Serge Klarsfeld book (1993) on the roundup of foreign Jews in Nice. The book is online at

Re: Tuberculosis Sanitoria #usa #general

The facebook group 'New York City Genealogy' is a good place to ask this sort of question - they know about some of the more obscure places to look for records for NYC residents. They also know what sort of medical records are available for public viewing, or how to go about inquiring about records. The same for arrest/prison/court records.

I would also check to see if there are phone/city directory entries for the grandfather you are looking for, and also look for any other type of record, like voting records (I've found these on Ancestry for a relative who lived in the Bronx in the 1920s) that might place him somewhere in the 1940s.

Re: Tuberculosis Sanitoria #usa #general

Ben Kempner
 

Hello Jill,

My great-uncle was living in New York and contracted tuberculosis in 1917.  He was accepted by the Jewish Consumptives Relief Society (JCRS), a sanitorium, near Denver, Colorado.  The archives for the JCRS are held by the University of Denver.  Colorado was a common destination for tuberculosis patients.  I believe the JCRS was in operation from 1904 - 1940.  It doesn't sound like an overlap for your grandfather, but it's easy to check their online database of patients at https://jcrs.library.du.edu/jcrs/#/dashboard/advancedSearch.

If you get lucky and find him in the University of Denver archives, let me know and I'll send you the name and email address of the archivist who sent me a 6 page file on my great-uncle.

As far as prisons go, the only thought that comes to mind is a presentation that I heard at our local JGS, given by Ron Arons.  He spoke about his relative who spent time in Sing Sing.  Perhaps contacting Ron might move you closer to some answers.  He comes up readily in Google.  

Good luck.

Orange County California JGS Sunday Meeting at 10:00 am Pacific Time #announcements #jgs-iajgs

Michelle Sandler
 

The next Orange County California JGS meeting is this Sunday at 10:00
am Pacific Time. The speaker is Greg Nelson of the Family History
Library in Salt Lake City. He will speak on Procuring Eastern
European records for the Family History Library. Members are free and
everyone else is $5 payable on our website at www.ocjgs.org. Everyone
needs to register at our website.

September 19 at 10:00 AM (Pacific time zone)
Greg Nelson: Procuring Eastern European records for the Family History Library
FamilySearch microfilm and digital cameras have been filming
continuously in Central and Eastern Europe since their initial
agreement with Hungary in 1959. Since then, all but 3 countries in
East Europe have had camera–capture projects to capture images of
records that assist genealogists from around the world. Today there
are nearly 30 digital cameras preserving records in archives in the
area. These projects include a large number of Jewish records,
especially those found in archives in the area of the Pale of
Settlement. This presentation will give you an idea of where records
have been digitized, what records have been digitized, how to access
the records and indexes, and where FamilySearch and our partners are
strategically planning to capture additional records in the next 10
years. It will also show you tips and tricks on FamilySearch on how
best to access the images and searchable records as well as add your
own information to the family tree.

Greg Nelson is the Content Strategy specialist for East Europe,
Central Asia, the Middle East, and various US States at FamilySearch.
He holds a BA in Russian, MA in Slavic Linguistics and Literature, and
a BS in Computer Science. He resides in Stansbury Park, Utah.

Re: The Hebrew translation for the name Yetta #names

Dan Nussbaum
 

Yetta is Yiddish and short for Yentl which in turn is a German/Yiddish translation of  Gentle or noble as in Gentleman with the "G" becoming a "Y."

A Hebrew name would be אדירה.
