Re: The name "Gizel" #hungary

I am going to take exception with the learned moderator on this one,
speaking not as an expert but, rather, anecdotally. In response to a query posted
by Sam Schleman, moderator VK states that, in Hungary, "Gizel" and "Kati" are
not versions of the same name.

This past summer, for the first time, my mother--who now is 86 and not
always clear-minded--told me about her mother's cousin "Gisella," which she
pronounced GIZZ-ella with a hard "g." She recalled Gisella arriving in New York
from Hungary c. 1922, when she was a little girl. Years earlier, Mom had told me
about my grandmother's cousin Katie, also >from Hungary. My grandmother had
died before I was born.

This branch of my mother's family came >from that same area of Hungary that,
at various times, was part of the former Czechoslovakia; this is the same
area where the Jews spoke German rather than Yiddish.

Yesterday, out of the blue, I was the beneficiary of a major JewishGen
success. A man located me through the "Family Finder" with very detailed and
specific information about the family of Mom's maternal grandfather. He is
descended >from a sister of this same man.

All of the information matches, and he told us much more about this
BAYERN family than anyone in my mother's surviving family ever before had known.
Needless to say, my mother and her first cousins, my sister and our own first
cousins, all are very excited to have found this whole new group of second and
third cousins, especially since we had assumed that all of their parents and
grandparents had been murdered by the Nazis. (Of course, most of them were,
indeed, killed by Hitler's henchmen.)

One detail that came >from this learned man, as an aside, (this occurred
just yesterday, remember) was the fact that Cousin Gisella's name, in
Hungarian, was... Kati! Make of this what you will.

Moderator VK: Despite the fact that several SIGers have commented that they have relatives whose names were Gisela/Kati, I can't think of any reason for this pairing. Can anyone offer an explanation? None of the name lists I use provide any clues that indicate basis for this connection.

Moderator VK: Kate is not an Anglicized version of Gizel. Gizella is a relatively common Hungarian name. Gizi or Giza are nicknames and Gittel is the Yiddish version. Gisele would be the "Anglicized" version. Kati is a nickname for Katalin, also a common Hungarian female name. Someone born in 1870 would be unlikely to have seen Kate Hepburn in the movies but, who knows??

My research has found that relatives who went by "Gittel" in
Europe often used the name "Katie" when they arrived in the USA.
That is not to say that the names are equivalent, or that Katie is a
"translation" of Gittel. But my experience is that the names were
commonly interchanged.

Please note that the Czechs and Slovaks each have their own "korunas".
Today 875 Slovak Korunas are worth approx. $27USD. As a comparison, a tank
of gas in Slovakia (2003) cost over 1000 Slovak Korunas.

Subject: [h-sig] The value of Kronen in Czechoslovakia in about 1933
Date: Wed, 28 Jan 2004 22:56:00 -0800

I recently found a diary of a relative who visited his home town in
Slovakia
in about 1933. In the diary he writes how much money he gave as a gift to
each relative or for aliyas in shul (shnuder). For example, he gave my
great
grandfather 875 Kronen, which he noted in the margins was equivalent to
$25.

Can someone tell me what the equivalent of 875 Kronen by today's standard
and economy would be? How many dollars would that be today?

Ferenc x Avigdor #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Ferenc and Avigdor have no common roots. Ferenc is the Hungarian form
of the Italian name FRANCESCO, which means ">from France" or
"Frenchman". Saint Francis of Assisi was the originator of this name
given that his wealthy family had large estates in France.

On the other hand Avigdor is a pure Hebrew name meaning "father protector".

Tom

Hello All,
In a recent work I did just now I came accross many Ferenc (or Ferencz) with
nickname of Ferri. All of them, with one exception, bore tha Hebrew name of
Avigdor or Wigdor. The one exception I know about (a relative of mine) bares
the Hebrew name of Pinchas. I am not sure if Avigdor can be generalized and
be associated generally with Ferenc, I am just sharing my experience with
you hoping it will help.
