BONDI is a medieval romance-language translation of the Hebrew personal
name, Yom Tov (Good Day). The name was relatively common among Jews in
Germany. The Encyclopedia Judaica lists the Bondi and the Bondia family,
plus four individuals named Bondi and four named Bondy.

The abolitionist was August, 1833-1907. His autobiography was published in
1910.

my long lost cousins #southafrica

Rosalind Finkelstein
 

Dear Genners,
Using the SA Jewish Rootsbank website I has been able to locate my father's
long lost cousins. Now I need help in locating their children. I will give
you all of the information that I have and hopefully someone out there will
know the family.

My father's cousin was Meita Salmonson who arrived in South Africa on
12/27/27 >from Libau, Latvia. She was going to A. Glaser at 29 Primrose St.
Capetown. She was traveling with her fiancee David Ber Katzen (Katzin) who
was also >from Libau. They married and had 3 children (I think), a son and 2
daughters. They may have been in the dress business. My father always
referred to her as Miteky. IN the late 1940's her husband and a daughter
came to the Mattapan section of Boston to visit his uncle. I vaguely
remember seeing them. A daughter corresponded for a time with my brother
but that stopped after a while. We lost touch with them in the early
1950"s. I would imagine that the the 3 children are now in their 70's. I
know that it's possible that the family left South Africa at some point.
There are couple of other Salmonsons listed >from Libau and I imagine they
are my father's cousins also. Any connections to them would also
be appreciated.
I was in Libau(Liepaja) last summer and it would mean the world to me to
find some living cousins as my father's whole family was killed in the
Holocaust. My father always talked about finding his cousins but we didn't
know how to go about it. Now that I am into geneology I want to fulfill his
wish and mine.
Thank you in advance for whatever information you may have for me.

< You are right! It is LANCE Corporal!, beside, what is Lance corporal? >

It is the first rank that a soldier in the British Army gets when he is
promoted. The sequence is:

Private (on first joining the Army)
Lance Corporal
Corporal
Sergeant
Staff Sergeant
Warrant Officer Class 2
Warrant Officer Class 1

and for officers

Second Lieutenant
Lieutenant
Captain
Major
Lieutenant Colonel
Colonel
Brigadier
Major General
Lieutenant General
Field Marshal

Some regiments have their own variations but these can get quite confusing -
the main ranks are listed above.

David, 17; Zvi, 15; and Haim, 13) together with other 2 Jewish young men
whose only surnames are known: Zefrin and Pomerancz. It was carried out by
Poles during WWII in the village of where they were hiding >from deportation
to Majdanek.
They were natives of the town of Komarowka in eastern Poland, 41 km NE of
Lublin.

Read in Haaretz newspaper of April 2nd, this amazing story which will end
in exhumation of the bodies to Israel next Friday.
