Re: Maiden name on documents #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

Shirley Brodt found: "A 1939 Dutch document shows the following for my
father's first wife, Mina Rosen, with her parents' information as follows:
Dochter van: BIRNBAUM recte ROSEN Mordko en van: BLEICH Sara.
Are Birnbaum and Rosen the surnames of her father's parents? If so, why was
Mina's maiden name Rosen and not Birnbaum, and how can one know if Rosen was
the surname of Mina's grandfather or grandmother? Also, why is Sara's surname
shown only as Bleich?"

Shirley, to answer your question first understand that Jews in Eastern
Europe often married religiously, rather than civilly.
In those cases, sometimes the children used their father's surname,
even though they were supposed to use their mother's maiden name.

Rechte (often abbreviated r.) means "legally" or "correctly" or "corrected".
Example: Brown r. Cohen means Cohen is the legal name, but using Brown..
False often meant falsely used, an individual might be using the father's
surname but officially should be using the mother's surname due to lack of the
required civil marriage. Example: Brown f. Cohen might mean the person used
Cohen (father's surname) but Brown is the legal name (mother's surname).

I like to use this shortcut...and think of the terms as "really"
surname and "falsely" surname.

So your document reads daughter of BIRNBAUM "really" ROSEN, thus
giving the surnames of both parents.

Happy hunting!

Re: Lagow or Lugav, Poland or Russia #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

Bob Kates asked: Can anyone please help me with a city name. Have you
heard of Lagow or Lugav Poland or Russia. I have looked on various Polish maps
and tried to find the name in the JewishGen towns site with no luck. My Grand
Uncle was listed as being born in 1843 but I can't out where the town is located.

Bob...if you query JewishGen's community pages..with Lagow or .with "begins with"
Lag...then you'll find the town Lagow which was in Radom Gubernya in
Russian-Poland till 1918, then between the wars in Kielce Poland. Looks like a
good match.

Take a look through the 87 registered surnames on the JewishGen Family Finder
(www.jewishgen.org/jgff ) for the town to see if there's a match.
And do add you surnames to it.

I'm trying to find a grave in Lithuania and wanted to know where Kovno gubernia
would be located so that I could find a cemetery in the appropriate area. I have
no information other than Kovno Gubernia and do not know the Shetel the family

Maiden name on documents #general

Shirley Brodt
 

A 1939 Dutch document shows the following for my father's first wife,
Mina Rosen, with her parents' information as follows:

Dochter van: BIRNBAUM recte ROSEN Mordko en van: BLEICH Sara.

Are Birnbaum and Rosen the surnames of her father's parents? If so, why was Mina's
maiden name Rosen and not Birnbaum, and how can one know if Rosen was the surname
of Mina's grandfather or grandmother? Also, why is Sara's surname shown only as
Bleich?

On that same document, my father's mother is shown as FRANKEL recte (or recta)
GERSTL, Reisel. The same questions apply to Reisel's surname.

How are compound surnames to be interpreted >from documents >from the 1930s and
1940s? Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

A 1939 Dutch document shows the following for my father's first wife,
Mina Rosen, with her parents' information as follows:

Dochter van: BIRNBAUM recte ROSEN Mordko en van: BLEICH Sara.

Are Birnbaum and Rosen the surnames of her father's parents? If so, why was Mina's
maiden name Rosen and not Birnbaum, and how can one know if Rosen was the surname
of Mina's grandfather or grandmother? Also, why is Sara's surname shown only as
Bleich?

On that same document, my father's mother is shown as FRANKEL recte (or recta)
GERSTL, Reisel. The same questions apply to Reisel's surname.

How are compound surnames to be interpreted >from documents >from the 1930s and
1940s? Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

Can anyone please help me with a city name. Have you heard of Lagow or Lugav
Poland or Russia. I have looked on various Polish maps and tried to find the name
in the JewishGen towns site with no luck.

My Grand Uncle was listed as being born in 1843 but I can't out where the town is
located.

Thanks for your help.

ViewMate - Do you recognize this book (Hebrew) ? #general

Hello

I have posted the cover of a book which was written by my one of my
ancestors Chaim Zelig at the following address
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM71528
I'm trying to figure out:
1) More details about the people mentioned in this cover and the
relationships between them - Chaim Zelig, Yehuda Leib, Moshe Meshil.
Some of them claimed to be famous Rabbis, but I could not find any
information about them.
2) Chaim Zelig if refereed to as "Man of Kanterovich". Does it mean a
surname, name of a place or a profession?

Many Thanks,
Dror Bereznitsky
