Re: Women profession in vital records. #general

Jeremy Lichtman
 

I've seen women's professions noted on Polish aktas (metrical records) of the 19th century.

On a marriage record from Kalisz, for example, the husband's parents are noted as being both weavers, from a nearby town.

In the early 20th century I have two female cousins who were both dental surgeons (Latvia). They continued practising after marriage.

It depends a whole lot on precisely where and when, as well as what economic status the people were.

My father's parents immigrated to the US through Libau in 1921.  I was able to find their names on the ship manifest through the Ellis Island website.  However, I had to know the names that they used at entry, which were their Yiddish names, and not their English names that they adopted after their arrival.

There is theoretical knowledge
about possible documents for emmigrants through Liepaja/Libau, Latvia.

It can also depend on their origin (province).

For some areas like Jelgava/Mitau, Latvia
such documents were not saved in the archive.

There are about 2M documents before 1918 in archive in Riga, Latvia.

Re: Feige and Fannie #names

Dominique Anderson
 

My paternal great aunt’s name is Frymeta on her birth certificate from Lipsko (Russian empire, now Poland). I have never heard her called anything but Fanny. My first cousin, her niece, who was born and lives in Belgium, is named Fanny in honor of Frymeta. I have always assumed that in English speaking countries, Fanny would be changed. An easy one is Faye. Am I mistaken?

My Jewish middle name is Feige; I say Jewish because there really was not a Hebrew for it… It was in honor my great grandmother Feige; in English, my middle name is Faye…

 

I was told it was translated, when Feigelah is used, that it means Little Bird

Yes, they can be used interchangeably.  I have several incidences of this happening in the Rufeisen branch of my mother's family.

Feige, Fannie, Fanny (and other spelling variants) were used as a Jewish Ashkenazi name and is he equivalent of the Biblical name Tziporah. Tzhporah, Yitro's daughter, was Moses' wife. Yitro was the Chief priest of the Midian tribe.

My mother's birth certificate gives her name as Fanny.  However, she was known in the UK as Faye but her family called her by the Yiddish version of the name which was  Feigela.  So the answer is definitely yes.  I believe it translates as "Butterfly".

Kay,

I know of a Feige Taffet who also used Fannie as her American-style name, so I believe the answer is likely to be "yes".

Re: What Uniform is Wolfbear ABRAHAMS Wearing? #general

Dear colleagues!
It seems Wolfbear Abrahams is in the russian (obviously infantry) uniform of the 1870-ies (the period somewhere of the russian-Turkish war of 1877-1878). The elements on his shoulders denote that he is a military musician (the drummer).

Re: Trying to Find Potential Jewish Ancestors #germany

Andreas Schwab
 

From Before WWII, Bolesławiec was in Germany and called Bunzlau. The town lies in Lower Silesia, which became part of Prussia in 1742. Bunzlau was captured by the Soviet army on Feb. 12, 1945. At that time, the largest part of the German population of Silesia had fled west. Today, Bolesławiec, like the whole area that became western Poland in 1945, is inhabited by the Polish population which was driven out by the Soviets from what is today's western Ukraine and western Belarus.   
So if "Bolslavia" was in Congress Poland, it could not be identical with Bolesławiec. It would be helpful if you gave us scan or the link to a scan of the document where Bolslavia is mentioned.

Is the following link the Death Certificate for George Edenbaum?

If so, this may (hopefully) help you out with some details as it may/might reflect the father's name as "Nathan David Edenbaum".

Just a thought... :-))

Does anyone know if it was noted anywhere in a vital record that a woman was a Midwife? My great-grandmother was a Midwife in Brody, Galicia and I have not been able to find any records there for her. If a profession was noted it would be another way by which to verify a record.

hello Jessica!

thanks so much for your guidance on this topic. Can you confirm something for me please: was the Boleslawiec you’ve mentioned part of Congress Poland between 1871 - 1910? I have spent a lot of time trying to find out because as you say, it’s very complicated!
with thanks, Nettie Edwards
