Unusual naming customs - Jacob Moses Rydz #general

Nick Rich <nick@...>
 

Thanks to all who responded to my question about superstition when naming
children after deceased brothers. I was surprised to get so many replies
from people who have this exact same circumstance in their own family. I
have come to the conclusion that maybe this was far more commonplace that I
ever imagined, and that the determination to honour the Father, naming a son
after him, far outweighed any superstitions they may have had. I found it
astounding that all 6 sons should name their first born sons Jacob, and
makes me feel even prouder of the fact that I too named my first born -
Jacob.

Again, many thanks to all, this is the most pleasant and helpful group
imaginable, long may it continue.

Kind regards to all,

A Jew in Nablus/Shechem c1900 #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

In a letter written circa 1900, there's a reference to an ancestor of
mine - Yaakov WOLINSKY - living in Nablus aka Shechem, Palestine, and
the translator found that unusual: that a Jew was living in that
town. I know that my ancestor was something of an irrigation engineer
- it was said that he worked for the Ottoman government - and I
wonder if that accounts for his presence there. Anyone have any ideas?

Best, Steve Orlen

Re: The Best Advice To A New Genealogy Researcher #general

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

The best advice I ever received is good for genealogists at all levels.
Researchers should go through their files, photos, notes, etc. periodically
to review what they already have. Something that was found and filed away in
the past may now provide even more information because of subsequent
research that casts new light on the old find.

Avenue M New York USA area Synagogue. #general

Rosalind
 

Dear Genners,
Could someone please help me with the following.
A relative had his barmitvah about 1928 at Avenue M Synagogue/Temple.
I have not been able to discover where Ave M is (which burrough) of New
York?.
Does it still exist or where could I look for records of members in 1928?

Another went to the 114th Street Synagogue. Again does this exist or where
would I search for records?

My most urgent interest is where might a member of either who died ,be
buried in 1920-1945 period?
They came >from Galicia to NY.

Many thanks in anticipation,

Ros Romem

Dear Group -

I'd like to thank all those who responded, both on-list and off-list. I
still don't know if Simon and Eva Wolf were family, but it's too large a
coincidence for them to be anything else. Simon Wolf was the father of
Amalie Wolf who married Moritz Nowak in Lostice and thus became my
great-grandmother.

Re: Carciumari #romania

DVORAHSV@...
 

Carciumari would probably be a pub keeper or tavern proprietor.

In Romanian, carciuma = public house, pub; tavern; saloon
The word carciumar in my dictionary = "publican " and add 'i' for
plural form
And the world carciumareasa = innkeeper (also the same word is the
plant 'zinnia')

Hope that helps, maybe others will confirm (I read passably in
Romanian, but not fluent and not a native speaker, so I rely heavily
upon the rom-eng dictionary which has "idiosyncrasies"...)

I've found some possible relatives through the Roumanian Business
Directory. Their profession was 'carciumari'. Is there anyone who can
tell me what that means?

Thanks a lot,

Re: WW I German military cemeteries #general

Nicole Heymans <nheymans@...>
 

I can't get into it at present, but it has (another site said) a link
to the German War Graves Commission for which the search site appears
to be (found via Google)
http://www.volksbund.de/graebersuche/

The German site seems to require the name and address of the enquirer.

Cecilia Nyleve
The Volksbund site does not _require_ information about the enquirer,
but _offers_ to relatives of the deceased the possibility of
receiving information about any change to the grave (if my knowledge
of German stretches far enough).

The direct link to the search form is
http://www.volksbund.de/graebersuche/content_suche.asp

By clicking on the name of the deceased, more information appears if
available, also a link to information about the cemetary ("hier") and
to the optional form if you are related and wish for an update ("formular").

Another interesting site already mentioned in this forum is
http://www.denkmalprojekt.org/Verlustlisten/rjf_wk1.htm which I
understand is specifically Jewish.

Interestingly, my great uncle Wilhelm LIEBES appears in both
databases but has a stone cross on his grave, so the information that
he was Jewish must have got lost somewhere. (His first grave already
had a wooden cross). A second LIEBES (Walter, 1897-1916) appears in
the Denkmalprojekt database, which does not specify the cemetary. So
it's well worth looking in both.
