Ladynancealot@...
 

Hi Listers,

I would greatly appreciate any help translating an 1883 marriage record
from Sokolow Podlaski, Poland, written in Cyrillic. The ViewMate file
is VM6811 and is found at:

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6811

I am interested in a complete translation giving all details, especially
names, places and exact dates.

I thank you in advance for any help you may be able to give me.

Viewmate - 3 Galician Records in Polish #poland

HJB <hjb@...>
 

Hello,
I have posted on viewmate Galician records received through
JRI-Poland for HABER family. In all I have received about a
dozen records for this family which have greatly helped in
clarifying and expanding information I already had. I'm now feel
confident that the first generations of this tree are close to
the truth and want to express my thanks to JRI-Poland, Viewmate
and the wonderful people who give so freely of their time for
those functions and to translate these documents for us.

Here are the records I've posted:
Birth record for Ruchel Haber, pg 1 & 2; Ruchel is the last entry
on this page
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/all/viewmateview.asp?key=6804
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/all/viewmateview.asp?key=6805

Birth record for Schlomo Wolf Schwarz, pg 1 & 2; Schlomo is the
3rd entry on this page.
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/all/viewmateview.asp?key=6806
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/all/viewmateview.asp?key=6807

Birth Record for Abram Wolf Haber. Abram is the last entry on
this page. Unfortunately this is a poor copy but it was the best
they could provide. Luckily it's only the parents column I'm not
sure of. Thanks for any attempts.

Re: Double names #poland

Thank you to Leslie Reich of Manchester for his timely
informative posting on "Yam shel shlomo," as I'm
writing a story on baby naming for a Jewish
publication in America. Leslie's posting has provided
interesting insights. Thank you again.

Subject: Double forenames, the Mahrshall and Schneur
From: "Mr L Reich" <lreich@tiscali.co.uk>
Until about the 15th a single Hebrew forename was
the accepted practice amongst Ashkenazi Jewry. I have
often wondered why and how the current custom of
double and multiple Hebrew forenames arose.
Recently I came across a passage in the talmudic
commentary "Yam shell shlomo" (Gittin 4:26)for which I
will now give a rough translation. This
piece is of interest to genealogists on several
counts.

Correction: Birth record of Faywel GEWIRCMAN - Request for translation from POLISH #poland

Tamar Amit <tamar.amit@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers:

I would be very grateful if someone would take a look at the following
1866 birth record >from Szczebrzeszyn, Poland. It is in Polish.
The JRI-Poland index indicates this should be the birth of Faywel son
of Moshe & Frieda GEWIRCMAN.

I would like to know the details in the record especially names and
places (as well as exact dates), but I would also like to obtain the
other details in the record.
Any help is appreciated.

The ViewMate file is VM6803, found at the following URL:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6803

I can provide a higher resolution image if helpful. Kindly reply to me
privately at tamar.amit@gmail.com . Thank you.

Tamar Amit, Israel.

Viguel de Sus or Felso Viso #hungary

moishe@langsam.com <moishe@...>
 

Hi,

I have an uncle that married in Barsana (Barczanfalva)
Romania in 1884. The records record his place of birth as
Viguel de Sus or Felso Viso.

Does anybody have any idea where this is and what it is
called today?

Thanks!

Vivian,
Most of my Lefkovits/Lefkovics family come >from that area (Zemplen County)

Re: ytandv digest: September 04, 2005 #yiddish

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Milton,
I saw your posting to the YT and V digest and thought I could help you,
albeit not in response to your question.
Over the past year and a half, I have photographed and partially translated
over 70,000 gravestone inscriptions >from thirty cemeteries in the NY/NJ
metro area. Among these 70,000, I have found some Botwinicks:
Makow Mazowiecki WA49 BOTWINCK Gertrude
Jedwabne BI01 BOTWINICK Samuel 21 Mar 1944 80 Zalman Mordechai
ben Zevulun 6335
Krasnosielc BD26 BOTWINICK Herman 14 Jul 1947 56 Chaim ben
Yitzchak Isaac 13694
Krasnosielc BD26 BOTWINICK Lena 10 Jan 1939 44 Lea bat Moshe
13670
Makow Mazowiecki WA49 BOTWINICK Ida
Makow Mazowiecki WA49 BOTWINICK Meyer

The first column indicates the name of the town that is associated with the
particular landsmanshaftn/synagogue plot. The second column is my code for
the cemetery and society name. Also included, when available, is the date of
death, age at death, Hebrew name of the deceased and father. Where were your
Botwinicks from?
Some of these I have full information for and others still remain to be
translated fully.
I hope this information aids you in your research.
You will also find my new web site of interest. It is a virtual (internet
only) museum of Jewish family history, and includes various exhibitions,
links and important information about our ancestors who are buried in NY/NJ
cemeteries. Most all can be accessed through the Site Map link. The URL is:
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com
I am also asking researchers like yourself for old family photos >from E.
Europe that I could use in various exhibitions on my web site. Also, I will
be creating a Yiddish/American Theatre "wing" to my museum, so if you have
anything, text/photos etc, that you think might pertain to Jewish
contribution to E. European/American culture, please let me know.
Otherwise, I hope that the info above is useful to you.
By the way, even though I grew up on Long Island, I did go to and graduate
from Temple University. I lived in Ambler for four years and had a
split-schedule the last two where I commuted half the time into Philly. I
graduated in 1974.

Billy Foster, Stage Comic #yiddish

Joel Ballon <westview.jjgen@...>
 

Hello Everyone,

I'm looking for family information about a possible relative who used the
stage name Billy FOSTER.
He performed as a stage comic. When performing in Pittsburgh he always
stayed with the Jacob KRAMER family, and was thought to be related to either the
KRAMER or BASMAN family.
Unfortunately this sketchy information is all I have.

Thanks,
Joel
