Searching: BRUSSEL family from Hamburg #general

micheline Gutmann <MichelineGUTMANN@...>
 

It is strange that we never got any news >from my husband's ggrandmother's
siblings, even on different databases as JGFF. She was Sabine BRUSSEL, born
Hamburg 1836. She married Moses GUTMANN. She was the daughter of Salomon
BRUSSEL and Louise HAGENOW.

Adolph, Henry, Joseph, James went to USA , New York. But also Cuba.
Johanna and Luis LOEFFLER's children went to Kansas City.
Now the name BRUSSEL disappeared quite completely because more girls than
boys married.
They can have the names DEITSCH, LICHSTENSTEIN, ROSSMAN, KOCH, LOGIN,
BIKET....
I hope we can hear >from some of them once !

Searching family KRAUSZ, in Hungary in 1939 #general

micheline Gutmann <MichelineGUTMANN@...>
 

Odette BAGNO was engaged in 1939 to Andre KRAUSZ .
He had prepared all the documents for their marriage.
But he was killed in France at the Marne battle in 1940.
Of course she could not be considered as a widow.
The family KRAUSZ (Hermann, Erzebeth and children) was living
in Nyiregyhaza, Hungary in 1939 except two brothers : Andre who
was killed in 1940, and another brother, Zoltan, was a sailor on
an English boat called "The KELET" .
He was interned as a war prisonner in Ottawa at the beginning of the war.

Then she knew that he tried to find her in 1942 but she did not want
to give her address to the Red Cross. After the war, she could not find
him anymore.

Now a pensioner, she is trying to find Zoltan KRAUSZ more than ever.
Eventually other members of the family if they escaped >from the Shoa.

Please, try to help her. Thank you !

As we have discussed here at length, it is not unlikely that a

Is this a "recent" or "new world" phenomenon?

I ask because my grandfather, his wife, and all of his children had two names
(Charles Benjamin, Henry Isaac, Ruth Pescha, ...) but everything I have found
on my great grandfather only shows one name (Simon). This seems to be true
for both the Hebrew and "American" names.

Thanks for any enlightenment.

Re: Why did Jews slavicize their last names? #general

Stan Goodman <sheol@...>
 

On Mon, 21 Sep 1998 15:32:01, davic@pop.erols.com (David Goldman) 'llowed:

-> I have wondered whether any studies have been done to explain why certain
-> Jewish communities or families slavicized their original Germanic Jewish
-> last names, while others did not. Why did this happen, where and when?
->
-> Thus Rosen probably became Krasner, Schwartz Cherny, Apfel Yablik, etc.

1) History did not begin with all Jews concentrated in German-speaking
areas and bearing German surnames, so the question makes an assumption that
is incorrect. Many Jews were in fact in Slavic-speaking areas when the
civil authorities began to require the adoption of surnames. Previously,
like the general populations around them, Jews that had no surnames used
patronymics alone. Read e.g. Dostoevsky to see that Russians still do this
in conversation, even though they now have surnames.

2) Jews, whether in Germanic-, Slavic, French-, or English-speaking areas
often change their names when they immigrate to an area of different
language (much as do other immigrants). For the antiquity of this custom,
see the description of the change of names by Abram and Sarai upon
immigration into Canaan, which you can find in Genesis.

3) If somebody does wangle a grant to investigate the reasons that drive
people to do this, I imagine that the report will cite, among other things,
a desire to fit less conspicuously into Canaanitic, Germanic, or Slavic
society. Or indeed, simply to foster their own feeling of belonging in
their new surroundings -- which is why many have Hebraicized their
names on immigrating to Israel.
