Based on these two posts I would guess your Hebrew
name is Chanoch Henoch (these two names go together
very often) Hatzkel (shortened form of Yechezkel).

When I first went to Hebrew School (nearly 50 years

asked us to ask our parents what our "Jewish" names
were. I have a

just the same) that
my Mom said that my name was something like "Hinay

How to Graft branch to your family tree. #general

Reuben Gross <reubendgross@...>
 

Many people responded to my request for help on grafting branches >from one
family tree to another. Thanks to all of you.Many more asked me for the
solution I received. Here is the deal:
Most important, make sure you have a backup copy of your tree before you
start monkeying around.
1. Open up the file that you want to take the branch >from and create a
descendent tree >from the oldest ancestor you want to include.
2. >from the File menu click "Copy/ export individuals on descendant tree"
You'll need to give it a new name.
3. Go to tree that you want to graft this branch onto and Merge the file
with the newly created file

Re: What's my Hebrew/Yiddish name? #general

Scheimer, Deborah <Deborah.Scheimer@...>
 

My husband's grandfather's name was Henry Jacobson. His Yiddish name was
(I'm taking liberty with the spelling) Chanoch, with the gutteral 'ch'
at the beginning and the end.

Scheimer Deborah

As I've been doing research over the years, I've come to recognize that
some given names that appear to be different may actually be the same,
in that either they're nicknames or Yiddish/Hebrew versions of the same
name. Now I'm puzzled about my own name, and I'm hoping that someone can
help me figure it out.

My given names are Henry Charles, I was named after my two grandfathers.

When I first went to Hebrew School (nearly 50 years ago), my teacher
asked us to ask our parents what our "Jewish" names were. I have a
memory that is pretty strong (but may be inaccurate just the same) that
my Mom said that my name was something like "Hinay Anoch Haskel."

I've since learned that Charles is a fairly common English equivalent
for Haskel, and I've also learned that my Grandfather Charles' "real"
name was, indeed, Haskel. (BTW, is "Haskel" Hebrew or Yiddish? Does it
mean anything, or is it just a name?) So I'm fairly satisfied about my
middle name, it's my first name that continues to puzzle me.

After my Mom told me that my first name was either Hinay or Anoch (or
both), my Hebrew School teacher said that my Hebrew name would be
Hanoch. I've never known what my Grandfather Henry's "Jewish" name was,
but at a recent family reunion one of my older cousins told me that she
remembered my grandfather, whom she called "Uncle Enoch"!

In my research, I've yet to discover any family members
named Enoch or Hanoch, but I have stumbled across a few men named
Heniah, which sounds awfully close to what I remember my Mom telling me
all those years ago.

So, here are all of the names that I figure might be my
first name:

* Hinay
* Heniah
* Anoch
* Enoch
* Hanoch

Are these all variations of the same name? Are some Hebrew
and some Yiddish? And as with Haskel: Does the name mean anything, or is
it just a name?

Sorry to be so long-winded, and thanks for your help!

better known as The Three Stooges. According to this website, Jerome

Help with place name in ship's manifest #hungary

David Sencer
 

Ancestry.com is offering a free opportunity to search ship records if
you enter through

http://olivetreegenealogy.com/ancestry/free.shtml

This was described in the October 15, JewishGen Discussion Group.

My grandparents' origins have been mysteries, other than that they emigrated >from Hungary in the 1880's and that they came separately. Through the index of passengers I have found both my grandfather, Ignatz (Singer) and my grandmother Bertha Senser with the first four of their children. The manifest for my grandmother's ship apparently has the place of origin more than just the country. The problem is I can't read it and I am not sure anyone can. It looks like Albany or Arbeny. Shtetl/Seeker offers Orveny and Orvenyes.

If any of you have Ancestry.com or are willing to try the Olive
Tree approach and find the ship Moravia arriving in New York in May 1885 my grandmother and four kids are on page 25. If anyone can help with the locale, I would be most grateful.

I have attached a copy of part of the page but I can't seem to make it open. It has been screened for virus.

Thanks for any assistance.

Carole,
Re research in Vienna Archives, the Israelitische Kultus Gemeinde

residents, and then accordingly there are vital records archived for the
Catholic Viennese residents at the Catholic Diocese.
You may be able to obtain their telephone numbers via the tel.directory

Have a great time in Vienna! I visited three years ago and loved it.
Almost everyone spoke English which made it easier. Try the pastry (if you have
a sweet tooth) at cafe Sacher . I was disappointed in the pastries at "Aida"
for they looked great but they all tasted the same.

Jewish baptism?? #hungary

Dorothy Kohanski <dkohanski@...>
 

My uncle, Arthur Greenwald, left a diary of a visit to Vienna in 1931. He
was born, he says, on Engebgesse street, changed to Giraidesse. He has a
strange sentence that reads: "A policeman suggested I go to the very old
church in the district, #VI called Mariahoff, for information as to house
number AS I WAS PROBABLY BAPTISED THERE"
Now I cannot tell whether that was the assumption of the policeman, or my
uncle's. To the best of my knowledge the family was always Jewish and he is
buried in a Jewish cemetery (I attended his burial). Any thoughts?
