Rabbi Jacob Schachter, of Northern Ireland #rabbinic

Menachem Butler <menachembutler@...>
 

Rav SIG'ers:

In 1952, Rabbi Jacob SCHACHTER translated R. Zvi Hirsch Chajes' Mevo
ha-Talmud into English (&#147;The Student&#146;s Guide Through The Talmud&#148;).
Rabbi Jacob SCHACHTER was the Chief Rabbi of the Jewish community of
Northern Ireland, Belfast, and had (at least) one son, whose name was
Chaim, living in Jerusalem during the 1950&#146;s.

Does anyone know anything about this author (or his descendants)?
Preliminary searches through the internet and various databases
provide little information about him or his family. I don&#146;t believe
that he is related to Rabbi Herschel Schachter, Rosh Yeshiva at
Yeshiva University.

Thank you,
Menachem Butler

Need help finding Eckstein family #general

Bob and Karen Oros <orosfam@...>
 

Hello,
I am very unlearned in Jewish Gen research. I'm hoping to receive help
looking for the family of my great great grandfather David ECKSTEIN. I am
told he came >from Pilson(?) Austria and fought in the American civil war, is
list on a plaque at Gettysburg as a Corporal. He lived in NYC, possibly
Manhattan and had many children, I know his wife died after stepping off a
trolley to go to a drug store, of a heart attack. One of their children, my
great grandmother, Sophie Eckstein, married Alva Mills, who was >from Ill.
They married in NYC, but the synagogue where they were married burned down
many years ago.
The only person I ever knew >from this side of the family was my "uncle"
(actually my grandmothers first cousin" Aaron Blakeman of Greenwich village.
Can anyone give me any hints, tips or suggestions as to how to go about
finding this family?
Thank you for your patience.
Warm regards,
Karen

Hebrew name Yair? #belarus

Adam Katzeff <adam.katzeff@...>
 

Dear all,

When reading the Hebrew script on an old tombstone in the Jewish cemetary in
Stockholm, Sweden I had problems figuring out one of the Hebrew names.

The tombstone is on the grave of a woman named Frida FAMIN (maiden surname
probably KRASNOW), who was born in 1857/58 in or around Velizh, Belarus and
died in Stockholm in 1925. The tombstone tells that her Hebrew name was
"Freyda bat Yair???". It was no problem finding out that her name was
Freyda, but what was her father's Hebrew name? His name was rather clearly
written with the Hebrew letters "Yod-Alef-Yod-Resh". I have never seen a
name like this before and I have checked some books on Hebrew/Yiddish given
names without finding any name that may be written like this in Hebrew.

Is it anyone that recognizes the name and can tell me what it is? It
wouldn't surprise me if it is a very unusual Hebrew name as the family above
is filled with other more or less unusual Hebrew names (for example Sima and
Hadasah (including the Yiddish double name Shim-Ode), Shifra and Hertz).

Best regards,

Adam Katzeff,

Zigmond ZEHNGUT #general

Erel Segal <erelsgl@...>
 

Hello,
My name is Arie ZEHNGUT (born 1951),
son of Baruch-Bertold Zehngut (born 1916),
son of Simon Zehngut (born 1890),
son of Pola-Perla-Zehngut and Leib Zehngut-Brendsteter.

I am a relative of Zigmund Zehngut (born 1867), who lived in Levov.
But I don't know exactly what is the relation.
He is probably an uncle of my grandfather Simon, but I'm not sure.

After some research, I discovered that Zigmund Zehngut still lived in Levov
in 1938; this is the last life-sign we have >from him.
He was probably murdered by the Nazis, with his wife Rosa-Reisel.

If anybody has any information about this Zigmund, I'll be very happy to
read.

Thank you in advance,
Arik Zehngut

Burial Society #belarus

Fine Family <mafine@...>
 

Hi,
Does any one have any information or know where I could look for
information about a Chevra Kadisha or Landsmannschaft called "Chevra
Adas Wolkowisk". My gggrandfather, Louis SOLOWITZ, is buried in their
section in Washington Cemetery, Brooklyn NY. These are the names on the
gateway to the section:
Officers:
Irving Agin, Pres., Julias Adolff, VP., Irving Beckenstein, Treas.,
Rabbi N. Rothstein, Secy.
Board of Directors:
Rabbi Charles G. Agin, Rabbi Solomon Agin, Dr.Morris Beyer, Dr. Max
Kaplan, Morris Adolff, Louis Agin, Abraham Baker, Sam Beckenstein, Ben
Krinsky, Michael Levin, Sam Levin, Gerald Proger

Most of the stones seem to be >from the 30's-50's although the oldest are
from the turn of the century (my gggrandfather died in 1906).
Any ideas or information would be appreciated!
Thanks

Help with Name - Getzel #general

Lisa Lepore <llepore@...>
 

The headstone for Isaac Moris Pochter
[Yitzh.aq Moshe] says he is the son of Getzel

ben reb Getzel

I was told that this is a Yiddish diminutive and not
a Hebrew name.

I did find an entry at the Jewishgen names database, but I want to be
sure I understand this correctly -

The Yiddish origin of Getzel is >from the Germ Goetz, Gottschalk, and
a Legal/Hebrew name would be Elyaqim Gets\Getsa\Getsil\Getsl

The origin of the name is Kings II 18:18

So, when I am looking for official documents, it is likely that I
won't see the the given name Getzel, but rather one of these listed
official names?

As far as we know right now, this family was >from Lida, Vilna, now
located in Belarus.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this name.
