According to Beider in his 1993 “A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames >from the
Russian Empire”, there are a number of “type”s of surnames. Among them are
topographical, as you suggest, but also occupational (i.e. Glazer, Malamed),
based on personal characteristic (i.e Kleine, Gross, Roite), indicating
clergy (i.e. Cohen, Levi, Levin), rabbinical (Katzenellenbogen), >from a
female given name (i.e. Witkin, Chaia,), and more. Beider uses 12 codes for
assigning sources for surnames.

Here are some results >from Beider:

Chernyj, popular in Gomel and Vilna comes >from Russian for black hair.
Referred >from “Charnyj”

Karan, popular in Minsk, Mozyr comes >from the shtetl Kran near Zitomer “see
Kran”.

Kran, popular in Vilna and Dvinsk is an artificial surname meaning “cock,
tap, faucet” in Yiddish and Russian

Dear Genners,

I'm looking for help contacting a distant relative in Oradea, Romania,
related to my Grunwald lineage. That relative has worked in the past
with the local Jewish community there-how can I contact them?
Thank you for your advice.

Best Regards,
Shaul Sharoni,

research assistance in Romania to first contact the Co-Coordinators
of this list for recommendations, before responding to any offers of
assistance.


Warning about researchers in Romania #romania

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear All,

Judging >from some email messages I have recently
received it is time for the usual warning about
unrequested approaches >from individuals who claim to
be professional reseachers in Romania, or who see a
posting asking for information about a certain family,
or town records, and offer to help.

Due to the poor economy in Romania there are those who
are desperately seeking to increase their personal
income, at your expense. The few legitimate
professionals do *not* use this approach.

Should you receive such a message volunteering
services, please contact the Co-Coordinators of this SIG
*before* replying to them in any way, for more
information.

In addition, certain members of this list have been using
the listings in the JGFF to contact members and
to volunteer information about a researcher. Please be
aware that this is in violation of JewishGen rules and policy,
and has been since the time the JGFF was initiated online!
In addition, these are private mailing lists and it is a
violation of their trust for anyone to copy a message and send
it off to another person, mailing list, or website.

They cannot be put in the position of allowing this system
to be used to recommend any researchers. Should you be approached
in this manner please notify your Coordinators immediately.
Private responses to requests on the List are permitted, but
even those should be checked with the Coordinators!

Remember - Caveat Emptor!

Gonshevsky surname #warsaw #poland

Shelly Crane
 

Hello,
I am having a difficult time obtaining information about a newly discovered
branch to my grandfather's LIPOWICZ family tree originally >from Sokoly,
Poland in the Lomza Gubernia. They also lived in Grajewo Poland (Lomza Gubernia).


My grandfather's paternal aunt Fejga married someone whose last name was
GONSHEVSKY. I'm guessing on spelling, but could be GOWUSHEVSKY, GONSIJEWSKI,
GONSIEWSKI. She was probably born 1860's, give or take a decade!

One of Fejga's son's Leyzer, may have moved to Otwock or possibly Warsawa.
Rumor has it they eventually moved to Israel.
The surname RABINOWICZ may also be part of this family.
.
If any of these names sound familiar, please contact me privately.

Shabbat Shalom

other surnames I am researching:
Lomza Gubernia, Poland: CYPKOWSKI/CYPRKOWSKI, DANOWSKI, FAJNTUCH, FROMSON,
GABELMAN, GUROWSKI, KALIFOWICZ, IDZKOWSKI, LANGANS, LANGUS,
LAZOWICZ/LEJZEROWICZ, LIPOWICZ, MILEWICZ, MILEWSKI MYSKOWSKY, WYTRIOL.
Warsaw, Poland: AJZENSZTEIN. Gabin, Poland: BOL, FISZER, HOLCMAN,
KRASIEWICZ, KUCINSKA, LASKA, NEJMAN, NUTKIEWICZ, ZOLNA. Miedzyrzec Podlaski,
