Many thanks to all the replies received
from our SIG members who offered to take pictures
of Tombstones at Muizenberg Cemetery on my
behalf.

This has been attended to by a kind SIG member.

As a matter of interest to all former Capetonians
living out of South Africa, the Cemeteries Board in
Cape Town is in dire need of funds to clean up the
Cemeteries where most of our ancestors are buried.
(This is not an advertisement and not to be

iniative and not on behalf the Cape Town Chevra Kadisha

Research in Dinslaken #germany

Henry Wellisch <henry.kelwel@...>
 

Jenny HARFF, born 1884 in Dinslaken is a very distant relative. Her
father David was born in 1816, perhaps also in Dinslaken, a town in
the Rheinland. He married late apparently.

How do I go about researching this family?

The names of people working in the Standesamt are on the Dinslaken website.
Would these people do research on the side or is the only other way to hire
a professional researcher in the area?

Was permission to emigrate requried between 1807 and 1816? #germany

Richard Welch <rwelch@...>
 

Hyman (Hayim, Hermann) LAZARUS, my immigrant German-Jewish ancestor, arrived
in the United States at Philadelphia in November of 1816. There is a person
of the same name, occupation, and approximately the same age in a document
showing that he was a fruit peddler in Appenheim (near Mainz) in March of 1807.
I would like to prove or disprove that these two individuals were the same person.

My question is, would a Jew >from this part of Germany between 1807 and 1816
have been required to obtain written permission >from the local German authorities
to emigrate, or, since this was during the time that Napoleon controlled much of
the Rheinland, would he, under French law, simply have been able to leave without
obtaining written permission? A staff member at the State Archives that has the
records >from this area is willing to do some searching for me, but there is no
sense asking if an emigration document was not required.

Re: The Hebrew equivalent of Vilmos #hungary

Judy and Gary Floam <gfloam@...>
 

Just a further thought on this question: does the name "vilmos" have a
meaning in Hungarian? And does it have anything to do with wolves?
"Ze'ev" means wolf in Hebrew and the Yiddish-German-English counterparts to
that Hebrew name were often Wolf or William (including my father and one of
my mother's brothers).

From: Prof. G. L. Esterson <jerry@vms.huji.ac.il>
To: H-SIG <h-sig@lyris.jewishgen.org>
Cc: Amos Israel Zezmer <amos.zezmer@wanadoo.fr>
Sent: Saturday, June 17, 2006 4:14 PM
Subject: Re:[h-sig] The Hebrew equivalent of Vilmos


Amos Zezmer posted as follows:

"Would anyone know the Hebrew equivalent(s) of the given name Vilmos? Is
there anywhere on the web where one can look up secular given names and
their Hebrew equivalents?"

to which the Monitor replied as follows:

"Moderator: As countless subscribers have previously indicated, there are
no fixed Hungarian counterparts to Yiddish or Hebrew counterparts for
Hungarian names and, conversely and no fixed Yiddish or Hebrew versions of
secular Hungarian names. Those who wanted to Magyarize their shtetl names
might pick a name that sounded similar or began with the same letter but
might as easily pick a name that bore no resemblance whatsoever. Check the
Hungarian SIG archives for the many discussions that we've had on this
topic and for on-line references. Please respond off-list if you have
specific suggestions."

What the Moderator has written is correct, as far as it goes. However,
there is in fact a *linkage* made by the rabbis in Hungary between the
Hungarian secular name Vilmos and the two Hebrew names: Binyamin and
Ze'eyv. And this is pertinent to the questions of Mr. Zezmer.

The secular name Vilmos was widely used by Jews in Hungary, to the extent
that the rabbis who wrote Jewish legal tracts on the subject of the
linkage
between Hungarian (and German) secular names and these two Hebrew names,
set Jewish law as follows: If a Jew could be shown by the Divorce Rabbi
to
have used both the name Vilmos and the name Binyamin, then in a Jewish
contract (e.g., a Get, a Jewish divorce contract), he must be identified
(i.e., his name written) as Binyamin haMechune Vilmosh (written in Hebrew
characters, the *Yiddish* version of Vilmos being pronounced exactly like
the secular name). "haMechune" is a Hebrew legal term meaning "known as"
or "alias".

And the same was true of the two names Vilmos and Ze'eyv: Ze'eyv
haMechune
Vilmosh.

So, I it is possible to answer the question posed by Amos Zezmer
positively, in the limited sense I have described. The names were not
*equivalent* but they were rather linked to their Hebrew names
statistically through their frequency of use and Jewish Law. That is, a
researcher might reasonably expect to find sometimes one, sometimes the
other, and sometimes both of the linked secular and Hebrew names in
Hungarian documents. Mr. Zezmer should be on the lookout for the given
names Binyamin and Ze'eyv (or something close to these two names, such as
Binye (a Yiddish nickname for Binyamin) or Yomi (another such Yiddish
nickname).

It is also true, as the Moderator has stated, that a Jew with the name
Vilmos could also have been given at birth almost any of the other Hebrew
names which were used by Jews -- without any special linkage to them, just
low-level statistics. The names Binyamin and Ze'eyv were special in the
strong statistical connection of Vilmos to them.

In answer to the second question, the name Vilmos (and other) secular
names) can be found on the JewishGen Given Names Data Bases web site:

< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames/ >

by searching the Hungary GNDB for the name "Vilmos" using Global Plain
Text
Search (without the quotation marks). An update to this GNDB is now in
preparation and will contain a full set of the 500 German secular names
used by Hungarian Jews as well as about 50 Hungarian secular names also
used by them.
