Mor or to be precise, Mór is the shortened version of
the German Moritz or Hungarian Móric. A very common
first name.

JAKOB=KAROLY? #hungary

Adam Smith <ajsmith98@...>
 

Hi Michael,

I say the answer is yes, the names Karel and Jacob are associated. I have a
member of my Oberlander family who is reported as Karel in vital records,
and according to family reports, his name was Kopel. You are probably aware
that Kopel is dimunitive of Jacob, hence the connection.

Take care,

Adam Smith

In my research of family in Komarom megye in the 1860s, the SAME men (two
different ones) appear to have been listed sometimes with the given name
Jakob (Jakab, Jacob) and sometimes Karoly (Karl, Karol). Are these two
names commonly related, or normal translations of each other? Both
synagogue and government records use both names with no pattern. Thanks
for your assistance.

Searchable Online City Directories #general

Adelle Gloger
 

Dear Genners,

As often happens, when looking for one thing we find something else. Recently
I found searchable city directories on < http://www.distantcousin.com/ >

Searches and results are *free* ! The images are very good quality. Most states
are represented with selected cities.

On the main page the default search facility is "whole site." Using this
option and typing in a surname will bring up *all* hits on the site for that
name. A Jewish Cemetery in Monmouth County, NJ has photos of the headstones.
There are also listings of MIA / KIA and casualties of various conflicts --
Korea, Vietnam, etc.

Hopefully, this site will be useful to many on this list.

Fabio Zyserman <zyserman@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm new to this list, and I would like to know if someone
knows about a city called Bransk, in Grodno.

There was born my father, Szachne Ziserman in 1923. My
grandparents and he emmigrated some years later to Argentina,
from where I am sending this mail.
As I did not have the opportunity of talking with my father
or grandparents (all died when I was 2 months old) I know
very little of their history.

If someone could help me in finding the exact place of
his birth, it would be great!

Thanks to all, and apologies for my english.

Lebanon cemetery - Peabody, Mass #general

Janet Brown
 

Is there anyone in the Boston or Peabody area that could possibly take a
picture of a headstone for me.
I have a Polaroid picture that has turned colors and is almost unreadable.
The obituary says Lebanon Cemetery but my mother remembers it being called
Workmens Cemetery.
I will provide details privately.

Solutions to poor penmanship problems #general

John Hoenig
 

Frequently, people ask for help dealing with poor penmanship. I published
an article entitled "15 Techniques to Triumph Over Poor Penmanship" in
Family Chronicle (March-April 2003 pages 28-30) which I think readers may
find helpful. Luckily, Family Chronicle consented to letting me put a
downloadable pdf file on my website. If you'd like a free copy of the
article, go to http://www.fisheries.vims.edu/hoenig/professor.html . There
are several other articles on genealogical technique you might find of
interest.

Could anyone give me any information about my grandfather's family in Russia?
His name was M.BREGOVSKY. He was born in Kovno, Lithuania, became a

in Russia with the name BREGOVSKY?

VM 3663-4: Need Russian Translation help - 2 Suwalki Birth Certificates from 1878 #general

Robert Zavos <rzavos@...>
 

I need some help on two birth certificates >from the LDS archive tapes for
Suwalki, 1878. These may be relatives if the names are ZAWONIK. The
signatures (?) at the bottom seem to have more letters than in the document
body (3663: last word on 4th line). The JRI-Poland indexer wrote 'Zaw-nik'
as they could not be sure of the exact name.

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3663
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3664

My family used 'ZAWOZNIK' in Yiddish and it became ZAVOSNICK in the USA and
SAVOSNIVK in Norway & Sweden. They defintely lived in Raczki at least >from
1864. Some even survived there until 1939 and used the same spelling.

If these are defintely not ZAVOSNICK then don't bother, but let me know who
they are. Otherwise I am looking for the primary genealogical inormation -
actual name, date of birth, parents, witnesses, village name. etc. Also
why are there two certificates >from 1878 for two children wiht the same name
- were they twins?

I can alter or enlarge the digital photo a little if that will help, but the
LDS tape was not real clear.

Any other suggestions are welcome and thank you. Please respond privately
to my email address on the pictures.

Thank you
