SOKOLOV - MALVIDSON #scandinavia

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

Firstly I would like to thank all of those who
responded so promptly and with such generous
information.

In the meantime, I have spoken to my elderly relative
and it would appear that I had some incorrect
information.

My greatgrandmother Freya nee SOKOLOV had family
called MALVIDSON/MAELVIDSON who may have been in
banking. This is the branch that moved to Sweden.

If that family surname rings a bell with anyone of
family who moved to Sweden >from Latvia maybe around
1905-1915 (very approximate dates), then please
contact me.

Regards
Angie Elfassi

REICHZELIGMAN/RICHMAN, Stakliskes, Lithuania/Leeds
COHEN, Sakiai, Lithuania/Leeds
MAGIDOWITZ, Jurbarkas, Lithuania/Leeds
KASSIMOFF, Rezekne, Latvia/Leeds

Derechin Records Update #belarus

mjgerver@...
 

Dave Fox asked me to post a correction to his posting about Kevin
Hanit's project to have the Derechin revision lists translated and
uploaded to the Belarus Country Database. The years for which the
Derechin revision lists are available are 1806, 1850, and 1858.

I hope that everyone here with Derechin ancestors will contact Kevin
(klh44@...) about making a donation to help pay for this
project, so that it can be completed as soon as possible.

Derechin Records Update 1 #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

I am pleased to announce that the 1806, 1850, and 1850 Revision Lists for
Derechin are in the process of being translated into English and placed into
an Excel spreadsheet for eventual uploading to the Belarus Country Database.

A few people responded to my previous message asking who had spoken to me at
the IAJGS Conference about getting Derechin records. That person is Kevin
Hanit in Canada. Kevin will be the person to contact regarding fundraising
to pay for this project. He can be reached at <klh44@...>.

The name of the game is patience and persistence.

Pinkas Mohel of Alexander Tachauer from Nurenberg #unitedkingdom

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear UK Siggers,
Since quite a number of Jews managed to find their way to the
UK in the 1930s,including via the Kindertransport I thought
that the following might be of interest.
The Pinkas Mohel or Sefer Habritot of the late
Alexander Tachauer the Mohel who lived in Nurenberg
and performed circumcisions between 1919-1933 was
published privately by his children in Israel in
2002.Though he lived in Nurenberg, he performed also
in Bamberg,Furth and other cities.I got interested in
it because of my family member Shmuel Koenigsbuch who
had his Brit in 1920. Alexander Tachauer circumcized
also the known designer Otto Treumann and Henry
Kissinger.
The importance of it is that one may see the Hebrew
name of the boy.
If you provide me a year of birth I'll be willing to
look up.

Could "Yitzhak" be translated as "Alexander?" #general

HeyJudy123@...
 

I apologize for this question, because I know this type of query sends some
of our participants off on tangents.

Nonetheless, there are some scholars on this site, people far more learned
than I am. As a result, there probably is someone who may be aware of the
definitive answer to the following question without needing to do intensive
research.

Would anyone know if, back in Czarist Russia, "Alexander" would have been a
reasonable interpretation of the Yiddish first name "Yitzhak?"

TIA,
Judy Segal

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Scottish Migration to Silesia in the 1600s/1700s? #general

Cary Aufseeser <cary@...>
 

We have an oral family tradition of Scotch descent for my ancestral LONDON
surname. I had assumed these ancestors were Jewish. Would anyone in this
forum know if Scot merchants and mercenaries (Jewish or not) settled in the
Breslau, Silesia area of what was then Austria, but became Prussia in the
1600s/1700s? Alternatively was there an English migration of merchants and
mercenaries to the Breslau area during that time period?
