Hello Genners,

Elaine Sanders Kaplan asked if there was an association of
umbrella makers. If anyone has information, please post it
to the group. I too had a relative who came >from eastern
Galicia in the 1890s who was an umbrella maker.

Thanks.

looking for descendents of Moses (Moshe) and Regina (Beckie) KARP #general

Rochelle Kaplan <rokap@...>
 

Thanks for replies. I realized I erred in naming children of Moses (Moshe
Louis) and Regina KARP; correct names are Bircom? (Benjamin), Abraham,
Mannie (Mendel), Willie and Clara.

Still need suggestions on tracking down Karp descendents, my cousins, who
could be scattered anywhere in US but who grew up in NYC (Manhattan and
later Brooklyn).

Can someone please clarify the meaning of "Samech Tet", thanks!
At the book: “Otzar Rashei Teivot” (Initials Treasures) “Samech
Tet” has few meanings, among them:

1. Spharady Tahor = Pure Spharady
2. Sidrei Tohora = The laws of purity
3. Siman Tov
4. Safek Treifa = Non-kosher food in doubt
5. Samech Tet = 69 (Samech = 60, Tet = 9)

Perhaps. Among a number of explanations, including Siman Tov,
Alkalay's dictionary gives Sephardi Tahor and Saint (i.e. St.)

... that "worms" eat computers... <grin> There is indeed some truth
to the old adage of what can happen when one opens up a "can of
worms". Providing one solution creates a "lineage" of newly defined
challenges!

As you are well aware, JewishGen has been experiencing of late a
steady stream of "technical difficulties" which affected at one time
or another all of JewishGen's services. We are confident that we have
almost "capped this can" and resolved all of the issues with the
assistance of some specific patches, more advanced software
applications to handle the growth and a tremendous amount of expert
technical assistance without which we could have been down for
extended periods of time.

As is often the case with volunteer-powered non-profit organizations,
these were new additions for which we had not budgeted.

Please help to keep JewishGen on-line by clicking here
( http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/ ) and making a gift to
JewishGen. It is donors like you who allow JewishGen to grow at the
speed we *all* enjoy as users.

Our goal is to raise between $7,500-$10,000 by August 15, 2001 to
help cover these costs.

The specific list of expenses for for which we have been billed thus
far are outlined on the JewishGen WishList.

We, unfortunately, are expecting more! <grin>

Thank you, in advance, for whatever amount you are able to contribute

Searching for General Ishio JAVITCH #belarus

ComputerCarolyn@...
 

I am doing some research on my husband's family name, JAVITCH.

I came across a quote made by General Ishio JAVITCH during a
"Symposim on the October War, Jerusalem, 16 September 1974."
The quote was located in the Al-Ahram Weeekly On-line of October
1998.

If someone who is in Jerusalem would do me the great favor of
checking the telephone book for any Javitch names, I would be very
grateful.

Has any Israeli ever heard of this man?
The name is totally new to all of us here in the US.

Thank you in advance.

Rose,

Amstiveve or Amstibove, an Yiddish name, is actually Mstibov or
Mstibovo, by this way you will find it on the map, 10 km W >from
Volkovysk. Amsibove is the shtetl of my grandmother Fanny
REJOVITZKY.

There was an EPSTEIN family here. The head of household name
was Schlomo ben Yitzhak Haim EPSTEIN, born 1878 in Volkovysk.

Hope it helps

Re: reverting to maiden name after divorce #belarus

Mario Jeifetz <mjeifetz@...>
 

The name of a Jewish woman was >from ever (Her Name) bat-daughter
(Her Father's Name) ishah-wife (Her Husband, if married).

In my mother's tombstone it is written: Reizel bat Joseph (grand-
father)ishah Aaron Hirsch (dad), although she always used her
maiden name.

Rabbi Elchonon is right, he has returned us to the old laws and
customs, far >from the current occidental laws. It is clear that
the woman's maiden name after divorce was not a Jewish problem

It seems that the maiden name is just a today problem and its
solution is under the current laws and customs, it doesn't only
for the Jews but for the whole people.
