thank you for help on Franci's War #austria-czech

Helen Epstein
 

Thank you Martha Flatto and others. I have been informed of not one
but three unexpected discoveries regarding dates and names in my
mother's memoir Franci's War:
Prague-Terezin-Auschwitz-Hamburg-Belsen-Prague 1939-1945. The 30,000
members of the FB Group Jewish Genealogy Portal were unbelievably
helpful.

They found Coonel Margaret Emmeline Montgomery, the British Red Cross
office who beriended her at liberation. She turns up in three other
survivor memoirs and was a sister-in-law of Field Marshal Bernard
Montgomery.

They found the birth and death dates of her friend Margot Stern
Koerbel (1907-1978)

Most movingly they found the records of Gisa Kaufmannova, the little
girl my mother adopted in Terezin who was murdered in Auschwitz. Her
relatives in Israel were amazed to find out that someone remembered
her.

The book will be out in the US in February 2020 and in Czech and
Slovak in May 2020.

Thanks again.

Visit JewishGen's New Website #austria-czech

bounce-3716063-772950@...
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce our newly designed website at
www.JewishGen.org. We commissioned the creation of a new landing page
to serve as a launching point for the main components of the website.
The site is built on a modern, secure platform, which is beneficial
for a number of reasons, including:

*It has a more intuitive and user-friendly design,
*It is mobile-responsive, and
*It has a more familiar platform, which will make it easier for us to
find qualified consultants, contractors and volunteers to help us in
the future.

This is not the final plan. It's a stop-gap redesign that addresses
some of the shortcomings of our website by creating a visually
appealing, mobile-friendly, and easy to navigate homepage that
researchers can utilize to find key components on the JewishGen site.
While we attracted approximately one million unique visitors to the
JewishGen site last year, only a small portion of this group actually
registered or became regular users. We anticipate that an enhanced
website will improve these results.

Specifically, we hope the new landing page will help guide researchers to:

*Search the online collection
*Locate ancestral communities
*Explore life in their ancestral communities
*Join our discussion groups
*Volunteer, and
*Donate.

Over the next two months, we will begin crafting a proper technology
strategy, which will include our website and databases. In the
meantime, however, this new landing page will immediately help
researchers, while also demonstrating JewishGen's strategic focus.

Thank you to everyone on our staff and volunteer leadership team for
their suggestions and contributions to making this happen. Special
thanks to Scott Seidenstock, Gary Sandler, and Warren Blatt.

Please enjoy the site and visit www.JewishGen.org now. Feedback and
suggestions will be most welcome!

Ashkenazi Naming Conventions - Double Names #general

Simon Zelman
 

I was wondering if anyone had any information about naming conventions
when a person had two names. I'm not referring to the double names
that typically go together (Yehuda Leyb, Arye Leyb, Menachem Mendel,
etc.), but rather double names where the person was most likely named
after two people. My great x2 grandfather was Moishe Mendel Dubrovno
and his paternal grandfather's name was Mendel Dubrovno, so one of his
names is for his grandfather. Would it stand to reason that his
maternal grandfather's name was Moishe? Were there any naming
patterns, where a person with two names would take one name >from each
grandfather (as in, was this the norm)? Or could one name be >from a
person's grandfather and the second name would be >from their
great-grandfather (or uncle, cousin, etc.)?

Best,
