Shalom!

I work with Koidanovo materials (the end of XIX century).

Probably, someone is interested in the genealogical research in
Koidanovo?

With Best regards, Alex Friedman

Error in doc's on SIG #belarus

abe-simon@...
 

I looked at the site,

http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/belarus_documents.htm

per reference in the Belarus SIG digest dated 7/17/00, >from
Leon Koll, item 8.
The 5th sample doc down says Marriage Civil, but the left-hand
page front is a passport. I can read some Russian and the first
word is Passport. I also have one >from my aunt's father >from
Belarus and I can recognize the other words.

Hope this helps. Thanks for making them available.

MANASHA Help required with this given name. #general

Peter_Hills <Peter_Hills@...>
 

I am interested in the use of the first name, Manasha.

Manasha is not a common name, indeed a search of JewGen Discussion Group
reveals only two brief mentions. Alternatives might include Manasseh but
I would welcome ideas on more common variants that might have been adopted
in early 1900s on arrival of our ancestors in North America or UK.
Thank you.

Why the RAYMOND/RAYMAN surname was used on arrival in UK. #general

Peter_Hills <Peter_Hills@...>
 

I am researching my gm's family who used the surname RAYMOND and RAYMAN
on arrival in UK >from Vilna in the late 1890s. Raymond and Rayman are not
typical Jewish surnames and I would therefore welcome suggestions or
speculations on what might have been their name in Lithuania. Thank you.

My "Mima" thanks you #general

Marjorie Feldman <feldman@...>
 

Thanks to all the Jewishgeners who responded to my question regarding
the meaning of the word "Mima." Overwhelmingly, the consensus has been
that "Mima" is the Yiddish word for Aunt. Some thought it may be used
to designate an Aunt one generation removed, i.e. grandmother's sister.
