George Farkas <george@...>
 

In reference to my letter below, if anyone has a contact with a Vidor Gyuri
(George Vidor) in Budapest, I would like to get in touch with him.
Apparently, he has done a family tree of my WEISZ/VIDOR branch back to the
1400s.

Shimkha Gedalia #general

Udi Cain
 

Is it possible that Shimkha is Simcha? Kha would be the gutteral h as in
Simcha and the letter Shin is exactly like the letter Sin only with a dot
on top to the right instead of the left. The question is whether the
spelling is Sin,mem,chet,hey, as opposed to Shin,mem,chet,hey. Simcha
means," Happy".<snip>
Varda Epstein

Dear Varda.

The name Shimkha, "sounds" more like a nickname for Shimon.

Best regards. Udi Cain.

Re: S.S. Koeln 1899 #general

mleonards@...
 

The following website contains useful information about passenger ships:

http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Parthenon/3649/ship-i-k.html#K

The Koln (Koln-2) did begin plying the Bremen-Baltimore route in 1899.
I believe Morton Allen only lists arrivals in New York and
Philadelphia, which is why the Koln would not appear there.

Sir Charles Clore Ancestry - Relationship With KLOR #general

Many years ago, I corresponded with Sir Charles CLORE about the
possibility of being related. His family as well as mine came >from
Lithuania. Unfortunately, after his passing, I was not able to continue my
research. Does anyone have any information about the names of his parents,
grandparents, and where they came from? I believe his father is buried in
Israel.

Re: Polish roots #general

Tomek Liniecki <liniecki@...>
 

I am trying to find the birthplace of my grandfather Wolf Ladinsky. I
believe he was >from Poland. The name on his naturalization paper is
Wladiimirsky. I have been told their was or is a city named Vladimir
named after a wealthy prince of Poland. Is it possible he was from
Vladimir or nearby. Norma Peltason.
Indeed, place called Vladimir - actually Wlodzimierz Wolynski - used to be
in Poland till 1939. Now it's a part of Ukraine. The "wealthy prince" was
Ruthenian, not Polish.

Re: Given names: Girsh/Hirsh, Gershon #general

Stan Goodman <sheol@...>
 

On Thu, 25 Jan 2001 03:38:45, chaikin@... (Udi Cain)
opined:

I know that the Yiddish given name Hirsh/Girsh is a kinui for the
Hebrew name Tzvi. Does anyone know whether the given name "Gershon" is
derived >from the same name Girsh/Hirsh, or has some other root?

I have seen one reference that indicates that the meaning of Gershon is
"a stranger there", which would mean that it has a completely different
root than Girsh/Hirsh.
The Hebrew word GER, means proselyted, joined to the religion, and since
such step, makes him a stranger within his new community, than Ger means
also stranger.
The first time that the name Gershon appears in the bible, in Genesis
chapter 46 : 11. "And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari."

RISHON in Hebrew, means first.It seems like Gershon is the combination of
the two words. So does it mean that the son of Levi, got the name to
commemorate the entrance to the new religion?
The above is very imaginative, but unlikely to be very close to
historical, or even mythical, truth. Indeed, it is dangerous to
attempt to derive names of Biblical characters of the Egyptian period
from Semitic linguistic roots. Not a few of these are, in fact,
Egyptian names to which phonetic similarity has made it possible for
folk-etymology to ascribe Hebrew meanings, sometimes far-fetched.
Examples are Moshe, Miriam, Amos, and Jonah, none of which, with all
due respect to the Tanakh, is an original Hebrew name. Detailed
explanation of that sentence would drag this even further off-topic.
But my point is that nothing is served by attempts to hang spurious
exegetical derivations on names to which they don't belong.
