New book: "A Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames" #general

Gary Mokotoff (Optonline) <garymokotoff@...>
 

Avotaynu's latest major work is "A Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames" by
Lars Menk. It is the largest book we have yet to publish: 832 pages--a work
nearly ten years in the making. My archived files on the book show Menk
first approached Avotaynu in August 1997 with the dictionary, and he has
been improving on it ever since.

The dictionary identifies more than 20,000 German-Jewish surnames >from the
pre-World War I Germany. >from Baden-Wuerttemburg in the south to
Schleswig-Holstein in the north. >from Westfalen in the west to East Prussia
in the east. In addition to providing the etymology and variants of each
name, it identifies where in the Germany the name appeared.

Readers of the book will clearly recognize that the author patterned his
book after the dictionaries of surnames produced by Alexander Beider. But
scholarship grows by improving on your predecessors. Beider shows the
districts where a surname appears; Menk shows the actual towns--and time
period.

I had Dr. Beider preview the book. His comments to me were that "the results
of (Menk's) efforts are excellent. The quality of (the) book is much better
than any other book written on Jewish names in Central and Western Europe.
It is done in exactly the same manner I would have compiled it myself."

The bibliography in the book testifies to the fact that Menk used more than
300 sources of information. As recently as six months ago he told us to
"hold the presses" because he found yet another source of names.

The book will go to the printer this coming week; therefore, it will be in
print in May. Sample pages >from the book, its complete Table of Contents,
and other information can be found at
http://www.avotaynu.com/books/menk.htm.

Ancestry 1880 census-ABRAMOWITZ families #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

Following up on Joan Parker's notice of the free accesibility to the 1880
census I put in my ABRAMOWITZ name >from Connecticut. I got all excited when
Anestry wrote that there were 100 ABRAMOWITZ families who came to the (USA
or CT. ?) >from Liverpool which is where my gggrandmother came through and I
even started reviewing the list they had on their website and *&*&^%^** some
thing happened to the computer (I presume mine since I've been having
problems with it) and it "froze".

When I restarted the computer and got into the site including the 1880
census and redid all the previous steps I couldn't, the site wouldn't return
me to the list of ABRAMOWITZs who came to the states via Liverpool.

My request of this group is:

Does anyone know of anyway I could get back to that list that was on
Ancestry?

Does anyone know of any other sources that I can get to ABRAMOWITZs who came
to the states >from Liverpool during the latter half of the 19th cent.


Thanks In Advance

Re: Initials on silver cutlery #france

In reply to Ariane Mil's query, "I would like to know how were the customs
in the different centuries and regions to put the first initials of the
names of the bride in the cutlery, which she brought as dowry for her
wedding:

Initials of first name and married name?
Initials of first name and maiden name?
Initials of married name and maiden name?"
My reply: I was born in Antwerp, Belgium, in 1923, and lived there until
May 1940, when the Germans invaded the country. My mother's damask linen,
which was part of her trousseau (dowry) and some of which I still use, was
embroidered with her maiden name's initials. There were two reasons for
this: 1) very often, a young girl started working on her trousseau when she
was still a teenager, long before she knew whom she wed; 2) if she was
engaged and knew what her married name would be, still she wanted the silver
and linen, etc., pieces in her trousseau to show their provenance.
Eventually, when she was a married woman, anything that was purchased and
engraved would bear her married name's initials.
