Polish Nicknames #general

Schamroth <scham@...>
 

There is an ancestor name that I am finding difficult to link up and
think that the name could possible be a nickname. Is the name Jokla
possibly a Polish (or Yiddish) nickname for Jakob?

Thanks to all the mumchim out there.

==Bet Hatsfutsoth does some great work but I think they are underequipped
for serious genealogical work. They are, essentially, a museum of past
cultures. The database appears to be a more of a sideline, an interactive
component meant to enable visitors to "do genealogy." I did send away from
the USA for some names, but none of the infromation I received was of any
use (unlike Family Finder which at first try put me in touch with two
distant cousins who had already done yeoman work on the family tree).

Their histories of towns is based, I understand, mostly on Encyc. Juda.
entries. Their gen records--as I discovered to my disappointment on a
recent daylong visit--are limited largely to what visitors (who have
likely had no experience at all in genealogy) have entered during a trip
to the museum. You'll typically get the name of Chaim Almoni, of his
parents (often no date of birth, no town of origin), his wife's maiden
name Ploni, their three children and four grandschildren. And that's it.
In any event, very little back information to help you trace ancestry.

The satff of the genealogy section is small and understaffed and though
friendly, I was not able to get any useful information >from them, not
even a suggestion to look up material in the general library of the Tel
Aviv University campus (on which BH is located) which I heard has more
useful records, or at the National Archives in Jerusalem where I was
able to locate the original records >from my ancestral village and trace
my family back six generations. It may have ben that I was just
unfortunate with the families I looked up, and that other family look-ups
are more rewarding.

I've found the Family Finder at Jewishgen an immeasurably rewarding source
of information. Again, BH is well intentioned and its staff is dedicated,
but its mission does not appear to truly focus on genealogy, their store of
information is limited (I was told to come back later in the week when a
grad-student researcher might be able to look up information in the library
that is not open to the general public).

I am told they are cooperating with others to register all Jewish family
trees. When that is done, and ways found to access these trees, BH may
become a very valuable instrument for family research. On my next visit
to BH, I'll concentrate on their depiction of Jewish life, prayer and
culture throughout the daspora and throughout the generations.

NOVOPRUTZKI from Lida/Vilna #general

EZRA <ezra@...>
 

Does somebody know what is the origin and the meaning of the last
name NOVOPRUTZKI ?

My late mother always used to say she was born in Lida and I assumed
the city. Now I know it's also a district. She also used to mention
living in Vilna so I always assumed she was born in Lida and later
moved to Vilna. Was Vilna in a certain point part of the Lida district?

Re Our Ancestral Homes and Cemeteries #poland

Vivian Salama <salassoc@...>
 

I found Lawrence's account of his discovery of his family's burial place
very moving. It reminded me of my visit to the Jewish Cemetery,
Wesissensee in Berlin, where most of my known family is interred. I had
the same feeling. It was beautiful and peaceful and I was so thankful that
the Nazis had left this cemetery alone. I was also thankful that most of
my family had died before the Nazi period and had been laid to rest in this
very special place. It may sound morbid, but it was a wonderful experience
to find all my relatives there. I hope to be able to return to visit all
the graves sites as there were too many to see the one time I was there.

Shalom,

I just learned that many years ago was published in France an Yizkor
book for the small towns of PLOCK / GOMBIN / WYSZOGROD / BODZANOW , from
Poland.

I am interested to know if anyone has any additional information about
this book.

Thank you,
