I received maybe 30 replies to my question re: the name Tillie in the old

several Mathilda's and Ottillie's, one Tzipporah, one Natalie.

I've responded to everyone who wrote, but thanks again to all of you. (I'm
going with Taube.)>

I'm glad (and not surprised) that you got such a good response. I want to point
out that Taube is German for dove/pigeon and is often "translated" in Hebrew to
Yonah (dove) or Tzipporah (bird).

Actually, though, Taube is >from the Hebrew word Tovah, (pronounced Touve in
Germany and Toyve, Teyve, or Tie-ve in Yiddish), which means Good (f).

So you have a wide range of choices when looking for your Tillie-Taube

Good hunting

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, Issue 78 #germany

Ernest Kallmann <kallmann.ernest@...>
 

Just published, this issue is devoted to the implications of the
anti-Semitic persecutions of the Nazi era upon genealogy.

1. The death records of deportees who have not come back >from the camps
are the subject matter of French Law of 15th May 1985. This question,
already touched in our Revue, Issue 75, is of special interest for
Jewish genealogists. The Law is summarized, as well as the errors which
have occurred in its implementation. What is at stake is to obtain that
the death records of these deportees be set up correctly and
comprehensively. Eve Line BLUM and Jean-Pierre NETTER illustrate this
case by their inquiries and by the answers given by the relevant section
of the Ministry of Defense.

2. In "Jewish patriotism and genealogy under the Vichy rule", Philippe
E. LANDAU examines how the French Jews have reacted to the anti-Semitic
laws deriving >from the Status of the Jews promulgated in 1940 and 1941 :
they produced the proof of their belonging to the French Nation along
its history, in particular by establishing their family trees. An
inquiry made by the Consistoire Central illustrates how they have
participated in the French political and military life during history.
The author stresses that this has not impacted the Vichy policy.

3. Jacqueline Behr and André Convers show documents established by their
ancestors to prove how early their ancestors had been French citizens
and how integrated they were in the society.

4. The racist obsession of the Nazis, which made genealogy a national
and institutional activity, involved over ten million Germans during the
Third Reich. This article, by Ernest Kallmann, published simultaneously
in English by Stammbaum, The Journal of German-Jewish Genealogical
Research, is comprised of three parts.

Part One sketches the rise of racism in Germany >from the end of the 19th
century, showing its influence on genealogy, eugenic theories based on a
biased use of genetics, and Teutonic myths. Part Two describes how
genealogy had become an institutional tool of Nazi politics, spreading
widely among the German population.

Part Three, to be published in a subsequent issue, shows the fallout of
the Nazi racist obsession on today’s German-Jewish genealogy research.

I have found the term in the following newspaper article:

"Pretiosenhaendler" would seem to mean something like precious stone trader.
