Is anyone researching KADANE or possibly KAYDZNKY. Louis/Lewis was born
circa 1857 and came to U.S. in 1864. He married Dora TAYLOR in Philadelphia, PA.
Dora was born in New York, NY circa 1858. Yes, I did look in JGFF and FTJP.
I do know about the KADANE family in Philadelphia; I'd be happy to share any
information. Thank you. Selma

Introduction - searching for information on BASCH family of Brooklyn, NY, 1873 #usa

Shimon Frais <Shimon@...>
 

I am searching for additional information on the BASCH family of
Brooklyn, New York. The head of the family, Jacob BASCH was born in
Prussia in 1832. He left Prussia around the time of the 1848 revolution
and moved to Sheffield, England. Some time before 1855 he married his
wife Emma who was born in Sheffield.

Jacob BASCH had a furrier's and cap making business in Sheffield for the

past part of 20 years. In 1869 he went bankrupt. In 1872/73 he emigrated
with his family to Brooklyn, New York. I found the family in the 1880
census. Interestingly the language spoken in the home is given as
English. I suspect this must have been quite unusual for Jewish
immigrants.

The BASCHs lived in the Fulton Street and other areas of Brooklyn. I
traced them through the censuses up until 1930. They continued to work
in the furrier business in New York.

Their children include Frederick (born in Sheffield in 1861, died New
York 1920's). Herman BASCH (born in Sheffield in 1870) whose wife name
was Ray. Simon BASCH, born in New York in 1874, and Saul BASCH, born in
New York in 1876. I suspect the latter two did not survive childhood.
One of the BASCH children was a musician, supposedly with the
Philadelphia orchestra.

I imagine that even in the early 1870's New York had a sizeable Jewish
population, but perhaps some of you have came across this family in
records and could help me shed more light on their life.

I am descended >from a sister of Jacob BASCH. Instead of going with the
family to New York, she moved to another city in England.

A different ancestor of mine (>from Strasbourg, France) was also supposed
to go the USA. I have her passport with Philadelphia written in it. The
story is when the boat called in at an English port the captain told
them they had arrived in Philadelphia and left them there. This is a
story passed down in the family. I am wondering if people on the list
have heard of immigrant ship captains who dumped passengers in England
after convincing them they had arrived in the USA?

Thanks in advance for your interest.

any information regarding the place, eg,

village is in southwestern Ukraine right on the
Romanian border and was part of the Austro-Hungarian
province of Bukowina. I've found out almost nothing

Re: Yiddish given names - Sheine/Sheindel #belarus

Prof. G. L. Esterson <jerry@...>
 

At 01:00 AM 8/31/2004 -0500, Ilene Murray wrote as follows:

As for Sheine/Sheindel, both are Yiddish names which are derived from
the Hebrew, Yaffah, but Sheindel is what is called a diminutive. I have
two friends, both named Judy, NOT Judith. Judy is a diminutive, and also
a name. Maybe former U.S. president, Jimmy Carter, is also a good
example here. Jimmy is a diminutive for James and a name in its own
right. (My mother's Yiddish name is Sheindel; she is named for her
grandfather, Yehoshua; in English she is Jeanne.)
There has always been a great temptation to consider all Yiddish names
ending with the suffix dl/del to be indicative that the name is a
diminutive of the "parent" Yiddish name. This is indeed the case for the
majority of such name pairs. However, >from the legal point of view of the
rabbis responsible in the 19th century for writing Hilchot Gitin (Jewish
divorce) law books as guidelines for divorce rabbis in various European
countries, they did not regard this as always being the case. And this
appears to apply to this pair, Sheine and Sheindl.

For example, in the book Get Mesudar ("An Orderly Divorce") published in
the early 19th century, author Rabbi Mintz clearly lists these two names
and their linked names separately. He apparently considered these to be
separate Yiddish names, even though some of the other Yiddish names to
which they were linked (Sheyntshe and Sheyntsye) were common to both of
these names. And I have never seen another Hilchot Gitin law book which
treated these two names as linked as parent and diminutive.

This is not to say that no women EVER used both of these names. There may
have been a few who did.

Incidentally, although the Hebrew name Yafa has been linked to the Yiddish
name Sheine because they both mean the same thing ("pretty"), the name Yafa
was surprisingly unpopular in Europe as compared with Sheine. I am not
sure that I would go so far as to say that Sheine was derived >from Yafa.

MENDELOWITZ family from Slonim #belarus

Alan Tapper <sabaalan@...>
 

Genners,

According to the EIDB, Daniel MENDELOWITZ arrived in the US on October 6,
1913 at the age of 18. He was going to stay with his sister Mary
MENDELOWITZ who lived in Brooklyn. Daniel and his sister were cousins of my
wife's grandmother who came to the US many years later.

I am trying to reunite family after all these years and am looking for the
descendants of either Daniel or Mary. Their father was Naphtali
MENDELOWITZ.

I know that there are 61 MENDELOWITZ families listed in phone books and am
slowly working my way through that list. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.
