Recently I put out a few requests on behalf of a young girl in Australia
who was trying to contact her two half brothers she had never met.

I am pleased to report that thanks to the numerous responses I got she has
made contact with one whilst the other had unfortunately passed away.

Thank You to all concerned - you know who you are

Re: Mindl: Is it Jewish or Hebrew? #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

My wife's aunt >from Romania was called Minnie and then Mina when she
came to the U.S. Her Yiddish name was Mindl. What would her Hebrew
name have been? Or would that also be Mindl?

Gene [Starn]
My (Anglo-Jewish) mother ('aleha ha-shalom) was named Minnie; my father
(Polish-born) often called her Mindl as an affectionate nickname. My
sister claims Mum once said that her Hebrew name was Malka. But on her
ketubbah it says Miriam! (Maybe she was actually "Miriam Malka.") This
neatly illustrates the problem of our female ancestors' names -- there was
often no Hebrew name at all, because there was no traditional ritual
equivalent to the circumcision ceremony, in which the naming of the
child(usually with a Hebrew rather than Yiddish namej) is part of the
ceremonial liturgy.

If your wife's aunt had a Hebrew name at all, the best bets are probably
Miriam and Malka. But many Jewish girls in Yiddish-speaking communities
were given only the Yiddish name -- so she may have been just plain Mindl
all along.

Jewish names of towns in Lithuania #general

Steven Halevy <Hale@...>
 

Can anyone tell me why quite a few of the Jewish names of towns in
Lithuania end in "shok"? Examples: Gailishok, Gintalishok, Grinkishok,
Hanushishok, Kazakishok, Katbishok,. etc. etc. Does the ending "shok" have
any meaning in Yiddish or Lithuanian? Hale@...


Re: My list of names #general

Marc,

Town you are have been asking for, is Pechera in Podolia region of Ukraine.
Peciora, Pecora, Petchora, Potchera, Pechora, Pechara, Petschara are an
"alternative" names for this town. Location: 4850 2842
I have to add to this collection "Potchira".

Genealogy Newspaper Column #general

Al Wirtzbaum <nycityal@...>
 

While looking at this week's New York City edition of the "Jewish
Week" newspaper, I was wondering why this newspaper did not have a
genealogy column. I searched the discussion group archives and
found that of the 10 instances I found doing a search of
"newspaper near genealogy," not one was for a weekly column.

Although I wouldn't be the one to write it, I think it would be a
good idea to have a column in the major Jewish newspapers in the
U.S. I'd like to know how many agree with me. Maybe if there is
enough of a response, it would encourage someone to take up the
cause. I'm sure we all agree that the more people whho are made
aware of genealogy as a hobby, the better it is for all of us.
Don't forget that many of us are on numerous e-mail lists, but the
average person is probably unaware of what genealogy is.

'Slutzk. Johannesburg, Jerusalem ', by Moshe Chigier . Probably a
Schochet.
