POLISH SURNAME #poland

Ann Linder
 

I've read many posts about surname origins, pronunciations, etc.
So here's a query I bet someone can answer.

Rochma GRUSZKA: she was always referred to by her son as being called
"Gruszkevicz" not Gruszka. Might anyone have an explanation for this?
She was >from Southern Poland.
Would Gruszkevicz be Yiddish for Gruszka? Polish & Russian indices
list her as Gruszka.
In her same town there is also a family called Gruszkevicz; could be
related or not.
What might be the Yiddish version of ROCHMA?
Does Gruszka have a definition?
If you believe your response might help others, please post. If not,
respond to me privately.

STERN Family from Zuentersbach #germany

Linda Shefler
 

In researching my family >from Zuentersbach, I am attempting to piece
together various disconnected STERN families. If anyone has any information
on the following, or has any connection to the Stern family from
Zuentersbach, I would greatly appreciate hearing >from you.

A) Gedalia STERN whose wife Ranche (?) died in childbirth in June 1880. He
had a daughter Fromed who died in 1892.
B) Another Gedalia STERN (who I suspect is the same person) (probably born
mid 1800s) whose was married to Hannchen (born ~1855). Hannchen immigrated
to America in 1939 with her daughter Klara PLAUT (and yes, the manifest
indicates that she was 85 years old) and had the following children: Rita,
Rosa married to Max HALLE, Solomon (born 1887) married to Malchen (Meta)
with children Guenther, Ingeborg and Marianne, Jenny (born 1890) married to
Arnold NUSSBAUM with daughter Ilsa (married to Ernest HALLE), and Klara
married to Salomon (Salli) PLAUT with son Werner (Warren).
C) Arnold STERN who in died in Zuentersbach in 1878.
D) Salomon STERN >from Zuentersbach who was married to Made (Malchen)
GOLDSCHMIDT >from Sterbfritz. Their children were all born in Zuentersbach:
Markus (Moses) 1868-1942; Emil born 1871; Sigmund 1874-1943; Roesel, Rescha
and Levy.

Thanks so much in advance!

ViewMate -- Yiddish translation requested #general

Ann Linder
 

I've posted a scan of a postcard written in Yiddish that if someone
would be kind enough to translate to English for me I'd be most
grateful. It was written in Aug 1950 by a man named Yitschak in Tel
Aviv Israel to his male cousin, a Holocaust survivor who was in
Straubing Germany at the time. I'm curious if there is anything in
the postcard about pianos or other musical instrument or if a newborn
child is mentioned.
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer. Pls respond privately.

Naming the newborn-Jewish custom #hungary

alexpmiller@...
 

Newborns are named after deceased ancestors. That has been the general
Jewish custom.

Is there something more specific? Who gets named after the paternal
ancestors vs. the maternal ones? Any time limitations after the death.
Naming of the first born? Different rules for boys/girls?

Any articles on the subject?

Re: travel time for farmers on dirt roads #general

Dave & Diane Smith <RhombicTorte@...>
 

Sounds like a silly question, but in fact it occupied the minds of military
logisticians for a couple of centuries. In the early 19th century (say >from
the Napoleonic era through the Crimean War), army wagon trains could haul
supplies at about 20 miles a day on decent dry road surfaces, with
significant reductions for mud and hills. A number of roads in that part of
Ukraine were designated Post Roads and probably were well designed.

Dave Smith

I'm curious as to how much time it might take for a family of four Jewish
farmers, on some kind of wagon, to get the six miles by dirt roads >from
Pochopova to Malchad (Ukraine.)

Looking for Louis GILBERT #general

Michael S. Clinton
 

I'm looking for information on my Grandfather Louis Gilbert. He was born 15
November 1897 in Veresnitsa, Belarus to Joseph Gilbert and Fannie GOLBERG.
He came to the US with his brother David M Gilbert in 1914. By 1918 he was
in Detroit Michigan. He married Jean Cooperman, 6 March 1921 in Mt Clemens,
Michigan and had five children. Sometime in the early 1940's he left his
family. He could have been in California in the late 1940's and later could
have been in NY.

The information I'm looking for is 1) Any information on Louis before 1918.
Except for the birth date all pre 1918 information is unconfirmed. 2) What
happen to him after he left the family in the early 1940's including any
information concerning his death.
