Re: Joseph as a Name for German Jews #germany

buckidstein@...
 

The name Joseph was used by Jews in Germany. In everyday use, there were with
manifold changes, e.g. Jessel or Jospel. Again and again, I encounter this
name since the 17th century.

In Gentile families, the names Maria and Joseph were traditionally given
only by Catholic parents. A person called Joseph was rarely Protestant. As
Joseph was the most common given name in Catholic regions, there was no reason
for a Jew to change this name in order to hide his Jewish origin.

"Middle names" do not exist in German name giving. We have one or more given
names (Vorname) and a family name (Familienname, Zuname).

Given name Schewie/Schowe #general

Elise
 

I have some records with the given name Schewie/Schowe. The first spelling
is >from a Hamburg emigration record, the second is >from a New York
immigration record -- same person. She was >from Kobrin in western Belarus,
born around 1848.

I checked the Belarus Given Names Database and the closest match I can find
is Sheva. Could someone more familiar with Hebrew and Yiddish names please
let me know if you concur or have other suggestions?

Need help on neighborhood locations in Oradea, Romania #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

I hired a researcher to obtain records of births for my grandmother and
her siblings in Oradea, Romania, and found out that although there were
only six children I knew of, there were actually eleven births. Five
children did not survive very long. What amazed me was that with
practically every birth, the home address was different. Can anyone
tell me where these streets might be, what type of neighborhoods?: Nagy
magyr Str, Pecze Str., Varalja suburb, Kolozsvari Str, Szent Janos Str.,
Nagy Hid Str, Gyar Str. Was it usual for families to move this often?
Only two children of the nine I have records for were born at the same
address. I am waiting for information on two children born after 1895
whose records are not available because of privacy laws. Thank you,
Leslie Weinberg

Dear Jil,
Welcome to GerSIG and
thanks for including your hometown in your signature!

Washington, DC is home to some of the best libraries and research collections in
the world. Lucky you - the information you seek is probably right there in your
own backyard. Reference librarians are expert in locating sources for the
material you seek. These may include reference guides to German resources,
guides to German archives, city directories, business directories, newspaper
collections, government records, legal records, official announcements, stock
exchange related records, maps, photo collections, German-Jewish resources, etc.

My suggestion is to start at the world-famous U.S. Library of Congress.
Many message posters overlook libraries and librarians. Remember, the
overwhelming majority of the world's published information is not on the Internet.

Mihaly vicepresident of the community, it lists 225 families / 923 person.
Otto Klein a twin >from Hajduboszormeny is living in Geneva Switzerland, he

A large part of my family were Kleins, who came >from Hajduboszormeny.
My great great grandfather was Kalman David Klein (1852-1931). His
grandfather, Kalman came >from Ujfeherto, and had a son Samuel, who had
Kalman David. Kalman David's wife was also a Klein, Hany Klein and they
had six kids: Samuel, Ignac, Ida, Ethel, Joseph and Hendrus. The Kleins

Any information would be great. Thank you.

KUPFERSTEIN/KARDOS #hungary

Patricia J Weisshaus <patjw28@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Has anyone heard of divorce in Hungary around the turn of the century?
Here's my dilemma: Ernest Kardos, in a letter to my husband, referred to
his sister "Vilma." In the passenger manifest in 1903 Ernest says his
contact in Hungary is his mother, W. KARDOS, and he's coming to the home of
his brother-in-law, Jozesf Fodor. Vilma, or Wilma, comes to the US in
1915,married, with two children . She refers to her contact as her father,
Herman Kupferstein, and she is going to her husband, Jozsef.

In the 1930 census, I found Wilma with her husband, Joseph Fodor and two
children. Also included in the household is "Fannie Cooperstein,
mother-in-law.

Was Ernest's mother married twice?

Is it possible that W. Kupferstein (Cooperstein) was also married to
Kardos? Is Wilma Ernest's half-sister? I have ordered the civil registration
film at the Family History Center for Nyiregyhaza for part of 1906 and
1907, but ths will still not tell me about divorce.

Can anyone answer my question?

Thank you to all,

Pat (New Hampshire)
