Weintraub"fruit of the vine" or "grape stompers"? #general

seymour weintraub <weintrauben@...>
 

In my efforts to fully understand what we lost in the final salution an
interesting thing happened.The Askenazi side of the clan uses "fruit of
the vine"as the meaning for Weintraub.The Sephardic side of the clan
uses "grape stompers".I find it an anti-semetic gesture by the Sephardic
Weintraub's to refer to us as "grape stompers".Are there Sephardic
Weintraub's that refer to themselves as "fruit of the vine"? As far as I
can find out Weintraub is a transliteration >from the Hebrew and makes
all Weintraub's direct desendants of the tribe Levi.Anyone with more
info ,please contact me.

SSDI mystery #general

Corin Goodwin <corin@...>
 

MODERATOR NOTE: Our curiosity has been aroused. Why does a death in 1919,
or even in 1922, show up in the SSDI when Social Security didn't even exist
at the time?
Possibly something to do with a surviving spouse or child? The deceased
person wouldn't have paid into it, but possibly a later application by
an orphan or widow would make note of it.

Re: social security speculations #general

Jonina Duker <jonina.duker@...>
 

Social security payments now cover surviving spouses and dependent
children as well as providing a form of disability insurance. Could it
be that when first set up there was some "grandfathering" credit for
previous work history in the case of a minor dependent child? OR widowed
spouse? In that case possibly a death date would be in the system for
years previous to the system's existence. Does anyone know enough about
SSA benefits when first established to figure this out?

Is there access to M.D. records from 1920s? #general

Stuart <sblevine@...>
 

Has anyone had an experience tracking down records of family members who
were physicians in the past? I am seeking several missing relatives who
were doctors in the 1920s and I wonder if access to their records (was
there an AMA then?) would help in my search.

MODERATOR NOTE: Even if there was, not everyone was a member of
the AMA, but a physician has to be licensed by the state in which
he or she practices.

Have you tried submitting the names to Yad Vashem? They will do a
search and for a modest fee, return any records they find.

Re: Marriage at 12 years old #general

Robert Heyman <robeh@...>
 

12 is about the earliest age that a Jewish female may marry. Details
are in the Talmud, tractate Kedushin, and are beyond the scope of
this discussion group.

My gg-grandmother was married at 12, and this is the reason, as told
to me by a grandson: She was orphaned as a child, and grew up in the
same household as the person she would marry. The parents reconciled
the problem of an unrelated boy and girl growing up in the same house
by deciding that they would get married anyway. As soon as it was
legal for my gg-grandparents to get married, they did.
