Re: Please help by translating my great-great Aunt's Matzevah from Hebrew #translation

kosher@...
 

Michael,

I would translate your great-great aunt’s matzeivah as follows:

1st line: here lies (abbr.)

2nd line: our dear mother, Mrs.

3rd line: Mindel the daughter of Mr. (abbr.) Yitzchak

4th line: Rubin, who died [on] the 2nd of Shevat

5th line: in the year 5652, according to the abbreviated date (abbr.)

6th line: may her soul be bound up in everlasting life (abbr.)

I am not 100% sure about what I read as Rubin in the 4th line.
Best,

Re: Samuel for Simschon? #names

Odeda Zlotnick
 

Three different Hebrew names:
Shimshon = Sampson
Shim'on = Simeon or Simon
Shmuel = Samuel

All appear in the bible, 3 different persons.

Hi,

I met a caddy for a blind Israeli golfer, whose name was Shimshon Levi.

He told me “Shimshon” was the same as Sampson as in the Old Testament.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Hello Amy 

Samuel Simon was my grandfather's name. He was born in Chicago. I think Simschon is used as another way to spell Simon. I hope this helps.

I'm trying to determine if I have a name match in records for my Ukrainian family.

There is a reference to an uncle by the name of Samuel, in my great-grandfather's 1921 passport application.  I have found no records for a Samuel in Jewishgen databases, but many records for a Simschon/Simson. I know that this Simschon is related because certain data on these records match, such as house numbers on birth records, etc.

The Ukrainian Given Names database on Jewishgen lists Sam/Samuel/Simon/Shimon. Could Samuel be used interchangeably with Simschon/Simson at this time? Or is that too much of a stretch?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Search of Kamenetsky's from Bessarabia #bessarabia

Lynn Caporale
 

In the 1950s, we spent happy summers with our grandparents at a bungalow colony in the Catskills (Kiamesha Lake, just down the road from the Concord Hotel) which was run by a wonderful woman, perhaps in her 70s? 80s?, we knew as “Mrs. Kaminetsky”.

There was a large shared kitchen in the main building, where Mrs. Kaminetsky prepared challah; an ice cold grey cement pool under what must have been a natural stream a short walk back through what I recall as “woods”, where we went blueberry picking for baking.

(As far as I remember being told eventually the nearby Raleigh Hotel bought the property and demolished the buildings)

Does anyone have more information about “Kaminetsky’s” or Mrs. Kaminetsky?

Would that be Hyman Moscow born 2-5-1849? Married to Esther Wolf van Wesel 2-6-47?
Both from cigarmakers families.

His father was Isaac, 16-8-1825
Their name (as far as I've seen it) was written as Moscou.

Re: Family Moscow in Amsterdam #general

The earliest Moscow family documented is for Joseph Hijman Moscow, born 1828 in Amsterdam:
https://www.openarch.nl/saa:62c982f8-78b0-41b6-be3d-c1f9a4f19f23

He had a son named Hijman born January 24, 1860.
https://www.openarch.nl/saa:647e2d48-d9b0-4624-8f0a-8fe4f2dc015c

Both, according to their population registrations (their are images available on these links) show they were both born in Amsterdam.

Hi,
I am trying to trace the ancestors of my grandfather Vilmos Feldmann born in Szakácsi, Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén, Hungary or called Kegye in 1860.
I am planning to visit the region later this year and would hope to visit any archive that might hold his family's records.
Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Hi,
I am looking to trace the ancestors of my grandmother, Bertha Steiner born 1860 in Slanitz Slovakia. As far as I can tell from comparing a detailed modern map of Slovakia with a pre-Trianon map of Arva
megye, this town now appears to be underwater in the Orava reservoir!
I am planning to visit the region later this year and would like to visit any archive that may hold records of the Steiner family. Any assistance would be appreciated

Abramowitz in Connecticut #usa

Susan Sorkenn
 

My Uncle Sidney’s sister, Grace Albert, from Waterbury, CT,  married Abraham Abramowitz. I believe his father was Irving. I am related to the Alberts (formerly Alperson) on both sides of my family. Sid’s wife, Hilda, née Kurtin, was my father, Albert’s, sister, and Sid was also my maternal grandmother’s (Fannie Weinstein Margolin) cousin. Could Abraham be a relative of yours?

Seeking Name Adoption Register for Lispenhausen now part of Rotenburg an der Fulda #germany

Dennis Aron
 

Does anyone know where this document can be found?  Thanks!
 
These documents were created in the late 1700s to mid 1800s when Jews were required to stop using the patronymic naming system and assume surnames.
 
There are two sources that I know of (that don't have Lispenhausen) 
 
1 Name Adoption List Index (NALDEX) in the JewishGen German Collection
