Help with Hebrew name pronounced CRAY-nee #names

Marc Zehngut
 

Hi,

I am trying to find out the spelling of my recently deceased mother’s Hebrew name. As far back as I can remember she has pronounced it as CRAY-nee.  Attached to this message is a very brief audio clip of her saying her Hebrew name. Her given name was Clara. Does anyone have any thoughts about how her Hebrew name would be spelled?  Unfortunately I don't have any documents with her Hebrew name written.

Thank you for any information.

On Oct. 9, 2021, I wrote to Nina Schwartz, I thought, at artstop@... to see about retaining her, but I have received no reply.  Is there some other way to contact her or others who provide similar services?

Wonderful!  Happy, happy birthday Naftali🎂

My family is from Sveksna.  Surnames…Eckowitz, Itzkovitz, Itzikowitz, Leon.
Joseph Itzikowitz, a Rabbi, and his wife were killed in the Holocaust.  His 5 children escaped to France.  His youngest son, Eliyah, went back to look for their parents and was also killed.  I found this out recently.  I cried for them.    Esta Kawaoka

A segment of a book is not an edition of it. You can't break a book down into "separate editions."

Hello, 
Some records from Mándok can be found in Chop books, I believe. These books are  in the state archive of Uzhgorod (Ungvár). 
Béla Huber from Ungvár can help you with research related to Ungvár area. 

His email huberbelay@...

Good luck,

This seems like good and generous advice.

I would add to be careful about font size as you layout and proof. It's easy to daydream about including "everything," but one consequence of that can be a book with print too small for easy reading.

Updates from the Arolsen Archives #announcements #holocaust #germany #records

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

The Arolsen Archives has posted several new items of interest:

 

  1. To mark the anniversary of Kristallnacht the Arolsen Archives is inviting you to participate in #everyname counts and collaboratively commemorate the victims of National Socialism in our Virtual Open Archive, to index (digitally record) these notices of new arrivals at Dachau

       When: November 9, 5:30–9:00 p.m.

       Where: Virtual Open Archive – (digital space of the Arolsen Archives, link sent after registration for event)

       See: https://enc.arolsen-archives.org/en/contact/

       Recording the prisoners’ names is a way for participants to actively remember these events, especially    

       the deportation of 30,000 Jews to concentration camps, 1,000 of whom did not survive the camps or died

       from the effects of their imprisonment.

 

  1. #Stolen Memory in Soria exhibition starts on October 25, 2021 and runs through November 11, 2021--Palacio de la Audiencia, Plaza Mayor s/n 42002 Soria Thirty posters tell the stories of people who were persecuted and deported to concentration camps in the Nazi era. Their personal belongings were taken away from them and have been stored in the Arolsen Archives since the early 1960s.

  

              The exhibition focuses on the fates of persecutees from Spain who fought against Franco in the Spanish  

              Civil War, were arrested by the German occupying forces while they were in exile in France, and were

              then deported to concentration camps.

 

              The exhibition is on display at the Palacio de la Audiencia in Soria until November 11.

 

Soria is a city in north-central Spain sits within the autonomous region of Castile y León, just northwest of Madrid and just south of La Rioja.

 

To get the #stolenmemory exhibit go to:  https://stolenmemory.org/en/

 

  1. #Stolen Memory of Białystok  will be shown in Białystok  from November 4. The exhibition presents the fates of 16 persecuted people from various regions of Poland whose personal belongings were stolen by the SS.  Some of these items are still stored in the Arolsen Archives. As part of the #StolenMemory campaign, we are looking for the victims’ relatives in order to return the belongings to them. The exhibit will be on display 4-14.11 Opera i Filharmonia „Podlaska” ul. Odeska 1

       15-30.11 Muzeum Podlaskie in Białystok, ul. Rynek Kościuszki 10.

 

  1. Every Name Counts is a crowd-sourcing project. You can help transcribe information from the Archives historical documents such as names and birth dates.  Their goal is to fully index all of the most important data by 2025.  See: https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/arolsen-archives/every-name-counts/about/research

The attached inscription is written on the back of my grandparents' wedding photo. Finesilver is my grandfather's family name .. he was born in Bessarabia.  I cannot decipher or recognise the next word.

Looking for descendants of Ernest Jacobs Romania/ Hungary/UK #romania #hungary

Debbie Brown
 

Hi Siggers. My mother was born 1919 in Mandok, Hungary, to Mendel and Bertha Jakobovits. I believe she had a first cousin, Ernest Jacobs, living in the UK in 1961. I’m hoping to find his decendents. Ernest’s father could be the son of, one of these three brothers, of Mendel. They were all born in Repedea Romania, between 1881/1893.
The last name at that time was spelled Jacobovits. The brothers are , Hersh, Mojse,
and Marko. These birth records are the only records of these men that I have found, other than Mendels marriage record. These birth records, are in the Romanian Archive.

Of course I would love to know anything more about all of them and other descendents, but I doubt any of them survived the Holocaust.
I would appreciate any help and guidance.

Regards,
Debbie Klein Brown

seeking SCHWARTZSTEIN from TERNIVKA #ukraine #dna

Lee Jaffe
 

I am working with three different families, descendants of three people we believe may be related, possibly siblings:

• Lizzie Dickler / Leah Schwartzstein (1851-1925)
• Sam Schwartz / Solomon (Samuel) Schwartzstein / (1861-1952)
• Joseph Schwartz/ Joseph Schwarzman / Josef Schwarzstein (1867-1921).

Available records report fathers' names as Manis, Munish, Moyshe, or Emanuel. Home town locations reported are Tarnowke, Ternifke, Tirowken, Ternovsky (pointing to Ternivka, Ukraine).

We've identified more than 35 of their descendants who match each other through DNA testing. We're trying to identify other descendants and place them either in one of these trees or other potential branches.  We encourage anyone who believes they might be related or have been linked to other Schwartzstein descendants to upload their DNA results to GEDMatch and join our Schwartz / Schwartzstein / Schwarzman ancestor project.  (Go to https://www.gedmatch.com/, login in, find Ancestor Projects under free tools and search "schwartz" see our entry).  We have engaged a professional genetic genealogist to review the tests and data we've collected so far.

If you have questions, feel free to contact me privately.
 
Thanks,

Lee Jaffe

Based on the popular 2017 article that has garnered over 110,000 views, this talk will help those with Jewish heritage learn to make sense of their DNA results. Well cover why our match lists are so large, (hello, endogamy!), why all our matches seem to match each other (endogamy, again!), and how to spot the meaningful matches and separate them from the faux ones. Using real-life examples of DNA success, youll learn techniques that will help you learn to work effectively with DNA to expand your tree.
