Question about given name of "Shere " #lithuania

Roy Ogus
 

I found an 1893 Lithuanian birth record that I believe is for a relative of
mine which shows a given name of "Shere", in both the Russian and Hebrew
records for the birth. All the rest of the data in the birth record seems
to match the relative.

However, the anglicized name of the relative was Sarah, and her gravestone
many years later shows a Hebrew name of "Sarah" as well.

My question is whether the name of "Shere" was a common given name for a
female that eventually was called "Sarah". I see that the name "Shere" is
a Yiddish equivalent to the Hebrew name "Sarah", so this may be the reason
for the birth name.

Thanks for any feedback.

Searching: SLANSKY, Bohemia/CZ/Czechoslovakia #general

Rachel Slansky <rachelslansky@...>
 

Hello All-

My last post many years ago has since turned out to be full of
inaccuracies. Reposting in the hopes the new info might connect me to
researchers who were eliminated by my earlier misinformation.

My Great-Grandfather Bruno SLANSKY was born in Teplitz-Schonau
(Teplice) in 1885. He was the last child born to Jakob and Marie (nee
LOWY) SLANSKY. The other siblings (Anna, Kamilla, Helena, Laura,
Richard, Klara, and Erwine) were born >from 1872 - 1884 in
Weitentrebtisch (Siroke Trebcice). The only siblings we were aware of
before the new development in research were Anna (m. Jakob SALOMAN),
Kamilla (m. Alois EISENMANN), and Helena (m. Emanuel POPPER). I have
no further info on the rest aside >from a death date for Laura (1884).

When the birth of Anna, the first of Jakob and Marie's children, was
registered, it was noted in the document that Jakob had previously
been using the last name ROBITSCHEK but the child would be registered
under his "right name" of Slansky. We've been Slansky ever since.
There seem to be a few things going on with Jakob, one of them being
that his mother, Anna SLANSKY, angered her father (name unknown) who
was a rabbi >from Horowitz (Horovice) by falling for a man who didn't
practice the "right" kind of Judaism. I believe that Anna (sr's)
father may have refused to make the marriage legal, so in the eyes of
the law Anna's children should have had her last name, but she and her
husband, who was a ROBITSCHEK (I don't have his first name), used his
name when their own children were born. Then, when her son Jakob went
to register his first child, he could not be found under the name had
been using, and the historical record was corrected (perhaps to his
own surprise).

Bruno immigrated to the U.S. in 1905. As far as we know, he was the
only one >from the Slansky branch, but he did stay with Lowy relatives
from his mother's side while he was getting settled. He had regular
contact with Kamilla, Helena, and Anna as well as their extended
families up until the communication lines closed during WWII. Of that
group, all were lost to the holocaust except for one nephew and two
nieces.

Previously, I had believed that the name change >from Robitchek to
Slansky was arbitrary and I was thus not related to any prior to
Jakob. I am hoping to learn about the family of Anna Slansky of
Horowitz. Now that I know there were other siblings, I would also like
to know more about what became of them. Searching Jewishgen has not
turned up any leads.

I am also cross-posting to the Austria-Czech SIG.

During World War ll, the Nazis looted the YIVO Archive and Library. Some of
the documents came to the United States after the war, the rest remained in
Lithuania until they were discovered in 1991. Along with their Lithuanian
partners YIVO is digitizing 1.3 million pages of documents and 12,200 books.
The books comprise rabbinical texts, diaries, letters, communal records,
literary manuscripts, photographs, Yiddish theater and eye-witness accounts
of the pogroms and the Holocaust. The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research
located in New York City, NY has placed that archive and library in the
Edward Blank YIVO Vilna Online Collections.

Go to: https://vilnacollections.yivo.org/ and type in the search bar an
individual place, book or event you may wish to examine. Images are being
added daily to the website. Scroll down the page where there are
opportunities to view various items. For example, "The Collections" and the
"Featured Artifacts" Recent additions included a 1902 instruction manual for
Jewish farmers "Back to the Land" posted on February 12, 2019; a memoir of
50 years of Life in America of Yisroel Yehkiel Kopeloff posted December 10,
2018. Again under the Collections, I went to "Exhibitions" The Strashun
Library of Vilna and clicked on "gallery" which opens to a selection of
artifacts. Each different "gallery" gives an opportunity to search these
precious documents >from the past.
