Naming practices #germany

George Arnstein <george304n@...>
 

To answer the question:
The socalled laws of emancipation, around 1800,
usually mandated use of last names, as described in:

Dreifuss, Erwin Emanuel. Die Familiennamen der
Juden unter besonderer Beruecksichtigung… Baden.
[Family names of Jews with special emphasis on
Baden.] Based on his Heidelberg U. doctoral
dissertation. Frankfurt 1927.
My English translation and summary appeared in
Stammbaum Issue 16, Jan.2000 (Leo Baeck Inst. NY City).

Dreifuss also lists the dates for various other
jurisdictions, to which I can add that in
Wuerttemberg, for example, surrounded by earlier
mandates to adopt names, there was much voluntary
anticipation.

Re. German Naming practices in 19th century - Hamburg #germany

Justin Levy <levyduffy@...>
 

Hamburg’s Jews were amongst the latest to have to adopt fixed surnames.
On 21 December 1848 the German parliament in Frankfurt had passed the law covering
the basic rights of the German people (Reichsgesetz betreffend die Grundrechte des
deutschen Volkes). Paragraph 16 ensured that these rights could in no way be
affected by a person's religion.

Hamburg’s governing city council passed a bye-law (Provisorische Verordnung) on 21
February 1849 on the implementation of the aforementioned paragraph 16. Article 2
of this by-law made the adoption of fixed surnames a prerequisite to the granting
of full citizenship.

The council also expressed the expectation that families that had been using a
surname for quite some time would not change that name. Seemingly few did.

In reality surnames were not all that fixed at all. One of the branches of my
family that originated in Hessen had used LEVI as a surname since the early 18th
century, but changed it to TRAUBE when they moved to Hamburg in the late 1840s.
Throughout the 1850s many records show the use of LEVY TRAUBE as a sort of
double-barrelled surname. By the end of the 1860s it was TRAUBE alone. However, by
the 1890s, my gggm was giving her maiden name as LEVY again.

Hope this helps you somewhat. Regards,

Justin Levy, Dublin, Ireland (levyduffy@...)

Take a Look at Friday's Conference Schedule! #dna

Roni Seibel Liebowitz <Roni@...>
 

Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the
train to your summer home or to take off for the beach, please look
at the Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some very
exciting talks and events planned that morning that you won't want
to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than
keeping everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we
opted to schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18,
from 8:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary,
Greece, Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark
secrets about the criminals in your family's past, or find other
"Jews in the news"...

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research,
or conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more
about Shoah victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be
spelled that way)...

If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became "suddenly
Jewish"...

...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about
Friday's sessions on the Conference web site

www.jgsny2006.org/conference_program.cfm

One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The Jewish
Chochka and Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi Guber requests
that registrants bring family items, documents, photos, and ephemera
to the conference. He and a panel will help determine when and from
where the items originated and any other secrets they may reveal
about your family. Please remember to bring along items for this
exciting session.

Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!

Help finding family in Dnipropetrovsk or Khmelnytska, Ukraine #general

H Duboff
 

Hi.

To those JewishGenners in the Ukraine:

I have some correspondence >from 1945 suggesting that at least one
family member was alive in the Ukraine at that time, in
Dnipropetrovsk.

I have placed images of the address on a website and would appreciate
help in locating anybody who may be >from that family. The location of
the images is http://www.duboff.net/ua

I have included an address >from before WWII in Sharovka, Khmelnyts'ka
(was the Podolsk province, Proskurov district). Perhaps the family
returned there?

The surname is MAILSHANKER (at least, that's the English spelling they
used.) The letters are addressed to/>from S. L. MAILSHANKER, although
the name mentioned in the correspondence was "Muli" or "Mili" Mili's
father's name was Leib.

A side note about the American address on the envelope: Sadly, the
neighborhood (the Logan section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) has
long since become a crime-ridden area; some of the places where houses
stood are now vacant lots.

Thank you in advance for your help,
--

schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m. to
12:15 p.m.

If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary, Greece,
Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark secrets
about the criminals in your family's past, or find other "Jews in the
news"...

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research, or
conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more about Shoah
victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be spelled
that way)...

If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became "suddenly
Jewish"...

...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about Friday's
sessions on the Conference web site

www.jgsny2006.org/conference_program.cfm

One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The Jewish Chochka and
Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi Guber requests that registrants
bring family items, documents, photos, and ephemera to the conference. He
and a panel will help determine when and >from where the items originated and
any other secrets they may reveal about your family. Please remember to
bring along items for this exciting session.

Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!

EARLY REGISTRATION MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MAY 15, 2006 !!!

Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the train to
your summer home or to take off for the beach, please look at the
Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some very exciting talks and
events planned that morning that you won't want to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than keeping
everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we opted to
schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m. to
12:15 p.m.
