MAKOWER Family #general

Shmuel <shmuel@...>
 

Looking for help regarding the Makower family >from Plock-Poland
The Makower family has been a subject of research for 25-30
years now. The result is shown in this site:
www.kehati.co.il/makower. We thank all those
who helped over the years to make this possible.

However, this is far >from being complete.As stated in the Main Page,
Dawid & Rachel Makower Died (1850 & 1870) in Plock, Poland.
They had 24 Children: 12 Boys & 12 girls, but only 12 are
known and mentioned here, and descendents are known
from only 6 of these.
Therefore, this family is known as "The 24".So any one who think
he is connected to the Makower family is invited to
search the site, and the "unconnected" branches, as well,
and tell us his side of the family.

We are looking for help also in another angle.
Our family's tradition speaks about "The Golden Flag"
(Degel HaZahav, in Hebrew). We don't know what it is
or what it refers to. We have searched everywhere,
consulted universities and professors, but nothing comes up.
We appreciate any information in this regard.

Thanks,

MITNICK and MITNITSKY #ukraine

stmitnick@...
 

I've recently discovered that my surname MITNICK was originally MITNITSKY.
I was sent some land transfer papers >from Woodbine, NJ., which listed my
great-grandfather as Harry MITNITSKY. I was wondering if anyone had any
information on the name MITNITSKY. I believe that my great-grandparents,
Harry and Dora MITNITSKY came >from Kiev, though I have no proof of that.
They settled in Woodbine, NJ. with their children, Jacob MITNICK, Minnie (Mae)
MITNICK CASTEN and Rose MITNICK WITT. Dora died in 1918, and I believe that
Harry died in the mid to late 1920's. Harry's second wife's name was Hannah,
or Anna, and I believe that she later married a man named Max ALEXENBERG.

Thank you.

BONDI in Dresden 1700s #germany

Andres J Bonet <andresbonet@...>
 

Yes,
the Bondi family came >from the Spanish buffer zone in France (Provence,
Languedoc, Rousillon) and Spain (Aragon, Catalonia) which belonged to a
group of Jewish communities which had had a common representative (seen as a
king or prince, bearing in Hebrew the titles Mar or Nasi) and were under the
same Spanish King or earlier under the same emperor Charlemagne. They
settled in actual Germany, the same as the famous Kalonymos saga where
you'll find many references to. Bondi is a variation of Bondia the
vernacular version of the Hebrew Yomtob. Yomtob are related to the Shemtob,
and therefore to the Kalonymos and the Bonet and the derivation Bernet.

Maybe this relation is very far away, but we are only trying to establish
the connections between them all. Ashkenazi means ">from Germany" and
Sephardi means >from "Sefarad" that's the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and
Portugal). So if they had just arrived in the Rhine Valley, they probably
would have been referred to as the "Sephardim". Later on if they moved again
out of there to another place e.g. Sarepta (France) they would have been
called "Ashkenazi".

Dear Genners:

Recently I posted a question re getting better copies of
Naturalization papers after the ones >from FOIA came in
so unreadable.

There were so many replies with such excellent information
and suggestions. I also learned things I didn't know >from
many of the wonderful Genners who replied. Even
though I thanked each one I wanted to do it again on the Digest.
What a blessing these people are as well as other
Genners in general!!!

Hello everyone! My cousin is traveling to Tolochin Belarus this summer. Tolochin
is a town near Orsha, which my family come frome. (surnames: Poretzkyn, Epstein,
Poretzky, Rutstein, Dubrow, Pavcek. Tolochin is a small town and I was wondering
if anyone had any suggestions in how to help best make such this trip efficient
and gather as much information during her visit. In addition, if anyone knows any
specific information about individuals or locations that might prove interesting
to the history of the Jews who came >from there - all information would be greatly
appreciated.


Thank you,
