I have a name on a headstone -
"Mem Raish Sav " Sheyne ( Shin Yad Yad Nun Aleph ) bat Shlomo

Ideas welcome for "Mem Raish Sav "
I assume that by "Sav" you intend the 22d letter of the Hebrew alphabet,
Tav. (There is, to the best of my knowlsedge, and tradition of reading the
name of this letter as "Sav".

The three letters are not a name at all, but "Marat", the construct state
of the word "Mara" meaning "Madame" -- an honorific indicating a married
woman.

Dear Genners,

Thanks to everyone who responded to my earlier message about BOMBACHs and
KALTERs in Israel. With their help, these relatives have been found.
(Therefore, no need to look further for them, if you were going to try to
help. I appreciate it all the same.)

The response regarding origin of Levine/Levin/Lewin/Loewen #general

color consultant <colordesigns@...>
 

The responses I received was that Levine comes >from Levi, son of Jacob and
also relates to being descended >from a Levite. The other genealogy
information on line relates to non-Jews with that name including the
spelling LeVigne, which is of French origin, and Lavino, Italian (Siena).
The British Lewin/Levin originated in 10th-11th century Shropshire,
England, and Lewin among non-Jews originated in Wales. I'll stick with
Levin as of Levite origin, only we're mostly Cohens. Thanks.

Re: More on my search for my Bronx cousin #general

Curiousyl@...
 

First - thank you to those who have offered information in the search for
my cousin on my maternal branch of my tree.

Continuing to clean-out my old files, I found notes made "umpteen" years
ago, re my maternal ancestry, which have revealed Harriet's surname was
probably STEIN - not Stern!
She was possibly the daughter of Lou Stein of the Bronx, who was the
nephew of Aunt Esther REISS, of Brooklyn.
Other relatives mentioned included Judges Frank and George Reiss, and
their sisters - Ruth and Sylvia. [all related to my Ehrenpreis/Awner/Avner
family].
Ruth was known to have worked at Saks Fifth Avenue - perhaps in the 40's
or later?

I have also found a memo showing my Grandfather Morris Ehrenpreis was a
half brother of ? SILBER [Silber's Bakery in Baltimore], ? MORGANSTEIN,
and ? HARTZ.

I learned in searching my Dad's ancestry that he also was a half-brother
in a large family, and it was difficult getting other members of the
family to share anything to help me in my research.

I would appreciate receiving information >from anyone who
may have knowledge of the persons named above.

Thank you.

Thanks to all who wrote in sympathy concerning my recent computer problems.
Reformatted equipment is now up and running, ASDL is running and things
seem to be fine, including my address book (which was not lost!).

Remember that hard-drive deaths *can* happen to you!
Most people do not believe it will happen until it actually does.
Do organize yourself to do regular back-ups of everything and, when the
inevitable occurs, you will be happy that you've taken the few minutes to
back-up your information on a regular basis.
Good luck.

Dear JewishGen,

I copied this document at the Family History Center in Salt Lake City in

after years of searching I can no longer find it. Any ideas of what this
document is and where I can search? It is ViewMate 3080 at

Inscription on ring #general

Robert Pollack <rmpollack@...>
 

I have a ring that has been in my family for a while, though I'm not sure
of its precise history. I don't know if it originated in Argentina or the
Ukraine or elsewhere. The inside of the ring has a strange inscription
that I can't decipher, and this is the purpose of my post.

Can anyone decipher this inscription? What language is it? Is it even a
language, or is it some sort of jeweler's code? What does it mean?

Three images can be found on ViewMate here:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3077
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3078
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3079

I took three pictures since it is very difficult to take pictures of the
inside of a gold ring (especially with the glare) so no one picture is
exceptionally clear.

If somebody has a good idea about what the inscription is but can't make
it out, I can work with you to try to get better images or some sort of
transcription.

Thank you very much (and please send responses directly to me, at
rmpollack@... , not to the mailing list),
