Re: opinions sought - Jewish Given Names #lithuania

To all -

For those who have not read Alexander Beider's book on Jewish Given Names
or attended one of Warren Blatt's sessions on the same topic, here is the
link to Warren's excellent outline of the topic.

http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/GivenNames/

This really helps you understand what we are dealing with when it
comes to given names.

Hello All --

I'm seeking opinions and thoughts about the connection of various
given names. Briefly, this is the situation:


One day seminar at Beit Hatefutzot on 28 November 2005 #lithuania

Martha LEV-ZION <martha@...>
 

The Israel Genealogical Society is very pleased to announce that the
one day seminar now includes Karen Franklin as a speaker! Karen will
give us a talk on mining the Jewishgen databases, something we can
all learn from!

Please look at the new schedule for the Yom Iyun - "Family Roots in
the Land of Israel and in the World" which can be found at this URL:

isragen.org.il/NROS/YY2005/

We have very few places left for the seminar and will likely be
closing registration by the end of this month due to a full house.
Please register now if you intend to come!

Palm Beach County Library's genealogy service #general

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

The May/June 2004 issue of Public Libraries, a publication of the Public
Library Association, featured an article entitled "Providing Genealogy
Research Services in Public Libraries." The article specifically mentions
the Palm Beach County (Florida) Library System's Genealogy Research website
and electronic email services, staffed by two professional research
librarians.

According to the article, the PBCLS staff will respond at no charge and
usually within 24 hours to requests for "locator searches" for current and
deceased residents of Palm Beach County, using archival city directories,
the Florida Death Index, local cemetery directory records, and the indexes
and microfilm of three South Florida newspapers.

EIDB- Deciphering a Place Name #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners,
I looked at EIDB for Salomon Perlberg who arrived with
his 3 children on June 6th,1899.
The place of origin is given as Zatrn. Upon looking at
the original manifest I realized that it is Zab??.
As far as I know they are >from the Tarnow area. The
first thing which comes to mind is Zabno but I need an
experienced eye to confirm/refute or to come with a
better solution.
Thanks.

Younger siblings marrying in-laws' siblings #general

David Edelman <pappapeach@...>
 

Dear Cousin Genners;
There has been discussions about cousin and sibling marriage. This is
a different questain, but with a family kind of marriage:
If you go back in history of, say, 100-150 years, we get the
impression that a lot of comunities were much smaller then they are
now. It is known that travel then was much slower, dangerous, and more
expensive then it is now.
Because of that combination, it has been mentioned that a young man
will travel about 50 miles, to the next village, to "find" his wife.
This is the questain:
Lets say, about two years after this first young mans goes to the
neighbore village where he "found" his wife, his younger brother goes
to the same village to also "get" a wife. This second wife happens to
be the sister of the first wife. This would then make the two
brothers, brother-in-laws: the two sisters, sister-in-laws.
Similarly, although slightly different, if the younger brother is not
the brother of the first husband, but the younger brother of the first
wife, and goes to the first village. You end up with the same result
in the end.
It would seem this should have been common, but I have never seen it.
I have only seen it once, in present San Francisco, where two sisters
are married to two brothers.
Was this common, not aloud, or what?

HIRSCH Heppenheim>London>East Woodhay, Hampshire & SELIGMAN Germany?>Tulse Hill, South London #general

Alice Josephs
 

I am looking for the HIRSCH family of Heppenheim an der Bergstrasse,
Hesse-Darmstadt, Germany. Baruch HIRSCH and his three sons Leopold, Adolph
and Heinrich (Henry) left Heppenheim in the 1880s and founded L HIRSCH & Co
of Warnford Court, Throgmorton Street in the City of London and made their
money >from South African goldmines and English coalmines.

I am especially interested in finding descendants of Leopold, Adolph and
Henry.

Leopold HIRSCH (1857 Heppenheim -1903 Westminster, London) married Matilda
Frances SELIGMAN (1871 Tulse Hill, South London-Unknown)

In 1901 they were living at 10 Kensington Palace Gardens, Kensington and the
children were:

Margaret abt 1892 London -
Ruth abt 1893 London -
John Henry 1895 London - 1983 East Woodhay, Hampshire
married Joan UNKNOWN (1913-2002 East Woodhay, Hampshire)
Richard abt 1899 London -

Adolph HIRSCH (1862 Heppenheim - Unknown) married Georgette SELIGMAN (abt
1879-Unknown)

In 1901 they were living in 10 Upper Brook Street, St George's, Hanover
Square, London and had one child:

Gladys abt 1900 London St James -

In 1901 Heinrich (Henry) Baruch HIRSCH was unmarried. He was born in 1872
and living at 110 Mount Street in St Georges, Hanover Square, London

The two wives of Leopold and Adolph, Matilda and Georgette, may have been
sisters. Georgette had a brother Armand Seligman.

On the net I have also found a Lindsay HIRSCH of L Hirsch & Co who had a
correspondence with Winston Churchill in 1909.

Please contact me privately on genealice@... if there is any
connection unless it is of general interest to the discussion group. Thanks!

searching for my half brother #general

moosenr@...
 

I am trying to get information about my half brother. He was a child during
the holocaust. He and his parents came >from Leipzig to Italy and were in
Ferramonte. His father's name was Jakob Buchaster. Jakob Buchaster died in
Auschwitz. His mother was named Paula Falek Buchaster. She survived both
Auschwitz and Bergen Belsen and emigrated to the United States where she
married Herman Speier. I am the daughter of Paula and Herman Speier.

Paula and Jakob Buchaster had a son named Manfred who was born on
September 13, 1938. I have two different addresses where they resided in Italy:
Viale delle Argonne XX, Milano (1939) and Via Ginlio Ubesti XX Milano
(dates unknown). They were deported >from Ferramonte to Auschwitz in
about 1943. As I said, Paula survived and Jakob died.

My mother had always told me that she gave Manfred to a family to
hide, but on the Yad Vashem Vebsite it lists Manfred as possibly haven
been given to a Monastery. I have been trying to determine if he is
alive. The papers on the Yad Vashem Website that provide this
information are stamped by the Unione Delle Comunita Israeltische
Italiane.

I would so much appreciate any help you can give me in finding
information about Manfred Buchaster. My e mail is moosenr@...
or speiers@... My telephone number at home is
XXX-XXX-XXXX. I speak English. Please contact me and let me know
how I can find out if my half brother is alive, or what happened to
him.

Thank you very much for any help you can provide
