Re: Czech search engine: Could ROZENBERK be a "sound-alike?" #austria-czech

Oh yeah, it could be! Final g's are "hard" in German - more like K than G...

My question is this: ROZENBERG (or, obviously, ROSENBERG) is one of my
family's surnames.

These spellings did not show up on the search engine but, linked to several
different people, ROZEMBERK did appear.

Could ROZEMBERK possibly be a "sound-alike" for ROZENBERG?

Hello Judy,

The problem with the ROSENBERG surname and alike spellings is that it
can be either a Jewish or a non-Jewish family name. Recall Alfred Rosenberg,
a prominent Nazi ideologue. In my opinion, but I'm not sure, ROZEMBERK could
be a different spelling of ROSENBERG. Both names have the same Daitch-Mokotoff
Soundex code (946795).

Good luck
Tom

Dear Genners,
I am looking for descendants of Louis and Sarah COHEN, who lived at
1407 Wilkins Avenue, Bronx, NY in 1920. At the time they had 2
children, a son, Sydney, aged 4, and a daughter, Beatrice (less than
1 year old). My mother's brother, who in 1920 arrived at Ellis Island
from Romania, listed Louis as his uncle. Please respond privately to:

"Are you sure it is 1944 and that this list is genuine and precise?"

My comment:
The date clearly says "1. Mai 1944", the typing and format as well as the
source seems to be authentic.

"Searching www.joodsmonument.nl only gave as possible connections:

Israel Kool who died Auschwitz, 21st January 1945
Louis van Gelderen died Municipality unknown, 21st January 1945
Abraham Bouwman died Central Europe, 21st January 1945
Philippus Klein died Monowitz, 1st February 1944"

My comment:
Note that the death date "21st January 1945" is the date for the liberation
of Auschwitz. It seems to me that this date was officially assigned as death
date after the war since no other date was available. Judging >from the document,
they must have been alife on May 1st, 1944 and died sometime between May 1st,
1944 and January 21st, 1945, possibly directly after being transferred >from
Monowitz to Birkenau.

Philipp (actual spelling: Phlipp) KLEIN is Nr. 26 on this list and was therefore
alive (or a namesake?) on May 1st, 1944.

With kind regards

FURMAGER #general

Adrian Furminger
 

Hello list,

In my family research the origins of the name have led me in a few directions,
mainly to prove or disprove some of the "accepted" theories of the origins.

Some months ago I stumbled accross an article which gave some explination
to the usgae of surnames within the jewish communities post 1066. My interest
was sparked by the word FURMAGER - being a tax "farmer", someone
who collected taxes for the crown.

My own family name FURMINGER, has been misspelt and includes a host of varients
but the oldest proven records for the family are in Brede Parish records
in East Sussex around 1580. Interestingly the local dialect pronounced the
name as FURMIGER.

Various Pipe rolls include the likes of William le FURMAGER, Richard le FURMAGER
and it does seem a likely possibility that the FURMINGER name may have evolved
from FURMAGER.
I would be interested to hear if the likes of William le FURMAGER (circa
1200) were likely to have been jewish or was it that their "job" was previously
a jewish one and the title was inherited.

Best Regards
Adrian

Varniai is a very small, picturesque town in the Telsiai
district of Western Lithuania. It has a river running through it
and it sits unobtrusively amongst former farms, forests and a
lake. It once had a very significant Jewish population but now
sadly, only one Jew survives.
I am Shtetl Coordinator for the town of Varniai for Litvak SIG.
We have translated nearly half a million Lithuanian Jewish
records and there are 9000 records in the Lithuanian archives
relating to Jewish families in Varniai (Vorne) which are waiting
to be translated.
If you are interested in the latest information regarding Jewish
birth, marriage and death records for Varniai, please let me
know and I’ll be glad to bring you up to date.
