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.

I have a significant family tree document for the SOMMERS family. The
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:

JACOBSON
CRAMER
SNEIDMAN
SYKES
BRAUNSWEIG
HIRSH
REFOWICH
JACOBS

Help need with the name Musha #general

Avrohom Krauss <krauss@...>
 

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

Avrohom Krauss
Telz-Stone Israel

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

philip to wolf #general

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.

Looking for DAFT relatives #galicia

Joel Throne <jkt25@...>
 

I had just discovered that relatives of mine-Sara and
Berl Hersz DAFT had immigrated to the USA aboard the SS
LaTouraine on March 7, 1921. They had three children
with them Basia (24), Benjamin (18) and Mendel (14).
They arrived in Ellis Island and was sponsored by Max
DAFT. After that there are no records at all. I know
that they are >from Szczerzer. Any suggestions as to
how to find them and if they had any decendents?
Thanks,
Joel Throne-Daft, Mager, Throne, Scheer and Streitfeld.
