Seek Anna KALLMANN b. Bingen 7 June 1860 d. Theresienstadt 20 Oct.1942 #germany

Ernest Kallmann
 

Dear German Gersiggers,
I am searching my great aunt Anna KALLMANN, born Bingen June 7,1860 and
deceased Theresienstadt October 20, 1942. Her married name was RATHKE
and her last place of residence before deportation was Wuppertal-Elberfeld.

I would thank a possible colleague living in the vicinity for checking
the addressbooks and / or phone directories of Wuppertal, say between 1880
and 1920, for anybody with name Rathke.

Given Names Pattern of Jews in the USA-The Bernanke Case #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners
I was curious when I first heard the Bernanke surname
by the time he was suggested to the post of the
Federal Reserve Chairman. I quickly discovered that he
has Galitzianer roots. But what is even more
interesting is his given name Ben Shalom.
Here is what I to found out >from Rabbi Shalom
Bronstein in Jerusalem who graciously gave me his
permission to qoute him:
"It was the tradition in the South that the
first born son received his mother's maiden name as
his first name. Thus, in Dillon there were people
with the name Smith Williamson and Brown Jones. The Bernankes
translated his mother's maiden name - Friedman to
Ben-Shalom."
I also enclose a link to an interesting article about
him in this week's "Forward".
http://www.forward.com/articles/6896
Rabbi Bronstein also reminded me that Bernanke is not
the first Galitzianer to serve as the Chairman of the
Federal Reserve. Arthur Burns who held this position
between 1970-8 was a native of Stanislau(nowadays in
the Ukraine).

I just found the town of Wroblowice in Drohobycz Administrative District.

Joseph Nussbaum, a relative, was born there in 1895.

I need more information about the town, AD, and/or Nussbaum family.

More on Parents and Children with the same name #lithuania

This is a link to a photo of the tombstone of Moshe Nisan ben Moshe Nisan
FRANKLIN (FRENKEL), a brother of my great-grandfather. I have other photos
of similar stones. >from the ages and dates involved, it would appear that
the father may have died before the son was born.
http://www.lordbalto.com/Franklin/MorrisFFranklin.jpg.

Keep in mind that a lot can happen in 9 months. I have also seen references
to the idea that a child would be named after an ill parent. Keep in mind
that this whole concept has todo with tradition and, dare I say,
superstitution, rather than any kind of biblical injunction.

Another problem develops once this kind of thing happens. It then becomes
difficult to name a child after a grandfather without it looking like
the child was named after the father! The full progression in this branch
is Moshe, Moshe (Morris), Morton (Mordecai), Marshall/Marjorie! though
I haven't made direct contact with them, so other things may be going on.

Mother and Daughter with same given name #lithuania

K. & L. Bertelsen <layakbtl@...>
 

My Vilna LAPIDUS GGGF, ca.1844-1914, had several known younger
brothers. His youngest known brother, Salomon, born Vilna 1863 and died in
Paris in 1924.

Salomon's first wife, was Sarah bat Gedalie PEREVOSKI born Vilna 1866.

Sarah and Salomon moved to Paris about 1888 and their three children were
born in Paris. Their second child was a daughter, born in Paris in 1892.
Her name was Sarah, the same as her Mother.

I know the name of Sarah PERVOSKI's parents, so her daughter was definitely
not named after her maternal Grandmother (Jeanette ADELSKI PEREVOSKI) and,
as far as I know, she was also not named after her paternal Grandmother,
who may have been IDA nee KAUGEL?? LAPIDUS.

It is possible that Sarah Lapidus born in Paris in 1892 was named after
another relative, either maternal or paternal, but although I have
extensive information about the Paris family, I do not know
after whom Sarah, daughter of Sarah, was named.

Two Polish translations - ViewMAte #general

Wayne N. Frankel <wnf9@...>
 

Dear Genealogists,

I've posted two 1860's Jablonka, Poland marriage records on Viewmate,
they are VM7113 and VM7114
The direct links are

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7113
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7114

A full translation would be great, but I am most interested in the
information in the middle of each document about the witnesses since
they are ancestors. Thus, their full names, patronyms, occupations
and/or ages would be appreciated. I am told that some of the words
may be Russian words spelled in Latin alphabet , but I'm not sure.

for 7113 the two surnames of interest are SOKOL and DWOROWICZ .

for 7114 the two with surnames CYMES and SOKOL.

Please email me privately.

If the images are too small for you to read, I can point you to a
higher resolution image.

Thanks for your help!
