Re: The names "Biniem" and "Benyamin" #general

Dear Cousins,

Doug Mason asked...
<<<According to family tradition (records for Kurow, Poland are not
publicly available), around 1876 Simha Biniem MANDELBAUM had a son named
Benyamin. Are the names "Biniem" and "Benyamin" variants of one
another?>>>

<<<The same family tradition says that Benyamin was not the youngest
child. Is it likely a son would be named after his living father?>>>

I answer...
With the particular names "Simha" and "Biniem," it is much more likely to
be the combination "Simcha Bunem" (and Bunem is not a variation of
Binyamin). There have been several previous messages about this name
combination that are in the Discussion Group Archives (and more within the
last month that are not be archived yet).

Assuming they were Ashkenazim (in Kurow, Poland), it's nearly
unthinkable that a son was named after a living father.

(My transliteration of the names reflects my own pronunciation, and
there also are other ways to spell them.)

"Binyamin" is a real name. "Biniem" sounds like a kinui (nickname) for
it.

The same family tradition says that Benyamin was not the youngest child.
Is it likely a son would be named after his living father?
Not likely in Poland, but _nothing_ is impossible.

Porzecze #belarus

Shlomo Wygodny <Wygodny@...>
 

Surprisingly, I found in the 1929 and 1930 Polish Business Directory
some people named WYGODNY in a place called "Porzecze". Apparently it's
a small village (pop. about 1000) in the province of Bialystok, Powiat
Grodno, Pok. Druskieniki, okr. Grodno .

I was not able to locate this Porzecze, but I think Druskieniki is
today's Druskininkai in south Lithuania, not far >from Grodno.

My questions:
1. Is this identification correct? Was this area in Poland before 1939?
2. If so, are there any records for this village/town? Are there any
indexes available?

Please respond also to: wygodny@identify.com .

Death certificates and Italiangen #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

Various repsonses were given for Michael Salzbank's request to find
death certificates for his relatives by using Italiangen.
Italiangen offers the option of requesting surnames that "sound like"
one's family name.
By allowing the web site to "do its work" you can come up with Israel
JORISH (rather than JORRISCH) who died at age 8 months in 1905.
Similarly, do not put in the full first name, just the first letter,
and up pops Zussel (rather than Zissel) POCH.

Sulamith,

Many hatters were also furriers.
Asthma and the constant exposure to the animal hair was the known cause of
hatters
death.
I believe that "hatter's disease" and mad as a hatter are as described by
Alberta Freidus-Flagg which is mercury poisoning in her earlier posting.

I am not saying that there was not any other illness that hatters were prone
to, but what is described as hatter's disease is this.

I have "Simha Bunem" in my family-tree. This has been discussed previously
but I don't believe it is the same as Binyanim.

There are 439 references on Google to "Simcham Bunem".

The origin of Bunem is given as Yiddish >from the French "bon homme".

have ever thought that I would be able to get a copies of the
original birth records of my grandmother and her brother >from Minsk?
This would not have been possible without the translation of records from
Minsk.

It is incumbent upon us to heed the message request of David Fox, the past
coordinator of the Belarus SIG who has worked tirelessly behind the
scenes along with many other volunteers in order to make so many databases
available to us on line via JewishGen which we can now access from
the comfort of our homes.

These records cost money and apparently the funds available in the Belarus
SIG are dwindling.

If we all make a commitment to donate even a small amount, perhaps Chai
($18.00), >from time to time, it would help greatly. Since there are so many
of us, we would make a difference and insure that more and more records
would be made available to us.
