Solomon/Zalman-Zalmen #lithuania

Ried Nathalie <nathalieried@...>
 

I have an ancestor named Zalmen and I thought it was a form of Solomon
but I got a doubt seeing that the Vilna Gaon's names were Elijah ben
Salomon Zalman : if Solomon and Zalman were the same name, would it be
repeated twice.

Thanks for your opinion about this,

Kollel Galicia in Jerusalem-Some Initial Genealogical Remarks #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Following the posting of Israel Pickholtz I visited
the Kollel yesterday.I looked only at the file of Brzesko
(Briegel in Yiddish)where my maternal family KOENIGSBUCH
hails from,but >from the format I got the impression that
it applies to other locations as well.

The lists of the donors are on quarterly basis. They
are handwritten but clear on pages which more or less
fit the A4 format(the Kollel has a small xerox copier
with A3 pages only).

Now to genealogy:
1.The lists are NOT in alphabetical order.So one has
to go patiently through each page. Most of the donors
are males but sometimes you find there females as
well.

2.Since the lists cover the 1924/5-1938/8 period they
give a list of the residents of the Shtetl on the eve
of WW2.The big disadvantage is that they cover only
the individuals who were connected to the Kollel but
not other Jewish residents of the Shtetl.

3. Comparing or making a cross reference with the 1929
Polish Business Directory and with Yad Vashem Pages of
Tetimony may yield fruitful results.It gives the
Jewish given name of the donor.

4. Some names disappear at a certain stage which might
be an indication to the year of death of a certain
donor( like with my ggrandmother Rudel KOENIGSBUCH).On
the other hand some names start appearing only in the
mid 1930s,which is also an indication of coming of age.

5. Since the donation is mentioned clearly and the
same individual donated usualy more or less the same
sum every quarter it might give some indication to the
economic state of the donor.

6. Sometimes a donation was given in memory of a
deceased person which again provides a clue tho the
date of death.

7. As mentioned by Mrs. Spalter on the Galicia-SIG) list,
very small hamlets and villages are included on a side
sheet of the "mother shtetl".

Well, quite a goldmine but needs a lot of "zitsfleish".

Regards >from Jerusalem.

Hebrew names #general

David Kravitz
 

Is it not time these arguments about Hebrew names drew to a close?
Some comments are becoming very personal.

My Jewish name is Yiddish with no Hebrew equivalent. As an orthodox Jew I
was called up for my bartmitzvah with that name. The ketuba for my wedding
gives my Jewish name, approved and created by the Chief Rabbi's office. I
have little doubt that the tombstones for myself and, later on, my children
will carry this Yiddish name.

Searching: Abraham PERLMAN, Cleveland, Ohio c. 1910 #general

Eileen Price <eileen.price@...>
 

Dear Jenners,

The name of Abraham PERLMAN was listed as the informant on two death
certificates, for my maternal grandfather and maternal great aunt, both of
Cleveland, Ohio. The two years are 1910 and 1912. Perhaps he knew the family
back in Brest Litovsk, or nearby villages.

If anyone has any information about this person, please contact me privately.
Thank you very much.

Rabbi Bernard DRACHMAN / Congregation Zichron Ephraim #general

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

I recently learned that a Torah (or possibly two) in the possession of my
great grandfather, Cantor Wolf BARON, was donated after his death in 1937 to
Congregation Zichron Ephraim in New York City. This was accomplished
through my great aunt Etta BARON SOMBERG, who was very involved in the
Sisterhood of the shul and was good friends with Haddassah DRACHMAN, wife of
the shul's rabbi, Bernard DRACHMAN.

The shul, today known as Park East, informs me they do not have documentation
dating back to 1937 in order to confirm which Torah is the one in question.

Do any of you know if Rabbi Drachman's papers were donated to a library
after his death, and if so, which one? Alternatively, are any of you
members of the DRACHMAN family or former congregants of Zichron Ephraim who
may have access to information or knowledge of the above scenario?

Many thanks,
Eden Joachim
