Bela Kun #hungary

Katz, Itzik <Itzik.Katz@...>
 

Dear H-SIGGers,

Does anyone knows the Jewish name of Bela Kun (1886-1936) who was the
communist counterrevolution leader in Hungary in 1919?

Does anyone know where he was born and what his parent's names were?

I have looked WOW and found very little information about him.

There are "rumors" that he is a remote relative of mine and I am trying to
find how.

Thank you,
Isaac Katz
Israel

Moderator VK: His birth name was Aaron Cohen and he was born in a village near Nagyvaradand. His father was a notary.

Does the name Sinai appears as a Personal Name in your family? #belarus

Henry <hmsinai@...>
 

We would be very interested in hearing >from anyone who has the name Sinai
(or any of its spelling variations including Synaj, Sinaj, Synai, Sinay,
Sine, etc.) appearing in their family as a Personal name, as well as a
Family name.

The name Sinai appears as a Personal name and Family (Surname) name in
records >from East and West European countries including
Poland/Galicia/Belarus, Czech rep., Slovakia, Austria/Hungary.

Ordinarily research is not based on a personal name but in this case, the
name Sinai seems to be an exception and we have noted that the Personal name
of Sinai is an important "Marker".

Dear Siggers,


Although I've checked the given names list, I cannot
find a diminuitive or
alternative for the Hungarian name FERENCZ, which I
assume would be FRANK in
English, something similar in German. Does anyone
know if there was a
commonly used nick-name?

Thank you.

original tree is the work of Herman Lee SUMMERS >from 1979 (with updates) and
one branch is particularly significant for the descendents of Dora JACOBSON
CRAMER who married David CRAMER on December 26, 1896. This family resided
primarily in the Harrisburg & Pottsville, PA areas. Also some in NJ.

Dora JACOBSON was the daughter of Esther Shana SOMMERS and Pesach
JACOBSON.of Lithuania. The first ancestor on the tree was born about 1825.

Some of the names on that tree include:

Help need with the name Musha #general

* Although not a translation, the name "Musha", a female version of Moshe
(Moses), may have been Anglicized into "Marsha."

I am trying to find out what name "Musha" traslautes into,
so I can try and find a lady and her husband so far I cant
find them on any census any where but a 1932 death cert Gives a location.

I am wondering if Musha ( A female had another name?)

Thank you

Hi Genners,
Mimi Katz asks why she finds a connection between Philip and Wolf in a UK
Data Base.
Here is a possible transition: Philip may have a Yiddish name of Feivel,
which can become Velvel, which is a Yiddish name meaning Wolf (and the
Hebrew would be Zev). This could explain the connection and the
metamorphosis of Phillip to Wolf.
