Searching: DUMAJ - origin of name #general

Solicitors Chambers <lawful@...>
 

I rececently discovered that my maternal grandfather's surname, before he
changed it to Silverstone, was Dumaj (pronounced Dumai) and that the word
"dumaj" means " day-dream" in Polish. What a strange name to have! I
wonder whether it was allocated to his father or grandfather round about
1800 when Jews were forced to take surnames, perhaps by some official who
thought it was mildly humorous? Any Dumajs or Dumais out there to compare
notes with?

There was a large furniture store in Seattle called "Funes & Oziel"..owned
by 2 cousins. I don't know if it is still in business. the Oziels are a
large Sephardic family in Seattle. You might want to try searching
on one of the "People Finders". Please note that they spell their name OZIEL.

Searching: OGEL / IGAL #general

ESES@...
 

I was looking at a ship manifest related to my Grandmothers and
Grandfathers first trip to America in 1908. The place they were going to
was 60 Pitt Street in New York City to a Issac Ogel (or Igal) my
Grandfathers uncle. The name Ogel has poped up before in my research of
the Zachrazym side of the family.
If this surname and the address strikes a bell please contact me

Searching: Rudolfo HIRSCH #general

Lawrenc846 <lawrenc846@...>
 

In working with the papers of illegal refugees interned in the Spanish
camp of Miranda del Ebro, I came across an interesting 4 page
autobiography, dated 15 January 1943, of a certain Rudolfo Hirsch a "no-
ario" German born in 1908 Magdeburg Germany whose goal was to become a
professional art historian and a Spanish citizen. The autobiography
abstracts his education, travels and ambitions.

My question to the list is has anyone heard of this person? I would
be most interested in learning more about his fate and subsequent career.

Please cross post any response to me at: Lawrenc846@aol.com
