Looking for Thelma Graber #general #usa


Attached partial chart from Geni, showing most of the people pertaining to my request.

In the past, I searched this forum for the traces of Eliyahoo Graber, my grandmother's brother, Chaya Liba Ginzburg, and her sister, Reina Podvielski. Eliyahoo (or Elle - the name which family used to call him). Eliyahoo was born with the surname Polka but apparently adopted the surname of his mother's youth while shortening to a catchy English name), immigrated to the United States at the beginning of the last century. To be honest I made very little progress with the information I received.

I recently find that Elle has a daughter named Thelma. It is not clear to me if she is married and if she has children. I do have information that he visited Israel in the middle of the last century.

Thanks for helping me.

It's actually a Yiddish name, so the spelling would be קריינא with an Alef at the end.

Hi. It sounds like קריינה (Krānuh - phonetically)to me. This is a Yiddish name that means crown. Were it Hebrew, it would be  עטרה (Atara).

Did you know that over 75% of the records available on FamilySearch cannot be accessed by a simple records search? Did you know that Ancestry has record collections that are available to browse but that cannot be searched because they are not yet indexed? While digitizing records is relatively fast and inexpensive, indexing those records is much costlier. Many online repositories have made these records available for browsing but working with them can be a challenge. This presentation will show you how to find and use these unindexed records to greatly enhance your research.

Help with Hebrew name pronounced CRAY-nee #names

Marc Zehngut


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?

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

It took place in Posad Vyshkov on October 30 (November 12), 1901 at 11 am. Itsek-Yankel Bronstein (not clear), 43 years old, and Itssek-Faivel Tsimbal, a religious teacher, 39 years old, both residents of the Vyshkov settlement, appeared in person and announced that this date, at 5 a.m. in the Vyshkov settlement, he died Dzbanek Avezer, 2 years old, son of Srul-Gersh and Adasa, nee Boynos. I am truly certifying about the death of Aveser Dubanek. This act was read and signed by those present.
