Ipswich #unitedkingdom

Jon Myers <jemyers@...>
 

For years I have been looking without success for an expert on the 18th
century Jews of Ipswich. My ggg-grandmother Betsy Isaacs Solomons Joseph
was born there c.1791, as was supposedly her father, my gggg-grandfather
Israel (Asher) Isaacs (c.1735-1837). Yes, his DC lists his age as 102. He
is buried in Portsmouth, where he lived, and at the end of the London 2001
Conference I went there (thanks to Richard Cooper and Henry Roche) and
visited his grave. Betsy listed Ipswich on the 1851 census return. Is
anyone aware of this Ipswich family?

Pittsburgh Jewish Cemetery Project - THANKS! #germany

Connie Fisher Newhan
 

I want to take a moment to thank fellow genner Robert and the efforts of
the Pittsburgh Jewish Cemetery Project for finding and sending me images
of tombstones belonging to several family members buried at West View
Cemetery in Pittsburgh. I had tried twice to deal directly with West View
to 'purchase' these photos. Both times I was told they would be in the
mail within days! Needless to say, I never received the photos. A while
back I noticed a posting about the Pittsburgh Jewish cemetery project and
wrote to Robert. Yesterday, he emailed me images of all the headstones.

Robert is a volunteer for the Pittsburgh Jewish cemetery project and tells
me he and his wife have recorded about 3000 to 4000 tombstones in the last
two years. They have more than 20,000 more tombstones to do in Pittsburgh
and there are only four field volunteers for the project. (They also need
data entry clerks). If anyone is interested in volunteer information,
please email me and I will forward your note on to Robert.

Robert's generousity reminded me that I needed to renew my annual Jewish
Gen contribution, which I just did. I have received so much help from
this fabulous group, it seemed like a small way to say thanks. Keep the
projects going and the research coming! Best regards,

c.feldeb@...
 

Hello genners,

Bernard Giberstein was a close relative of my g-grand mother Chaja. During
the war he was a resistant and helped people to get safe in Switzerland.
After the war, he created, in France, a company named "les bas dimanche",
witch with the years became world wide company "DIM".
Does someone know anything else about him and his ancestors ?
Every detail will be very usefull.

Can external ears serve as a genetic linkage? #general

==Thanks, Joel. This does then confirm that comparing ears in phtos can
confirm or reject the assumption that we're looking at the same person.

==I wonder, however, whether there are family resemblances in ears, so we
can get additional information whether the two people in a photograph are
likely to be related. DNA (and build, facial features etc) gives us
clues on the probability of relationship while fingerprints, I believe,
are not clues to potential relationship.

On my grandmother's tombstone next to her surname is another word in
capital letters 'ayin hay'. Would someone please tell me what this
means.

=A"H is the initials for Aleyha / Alaiv Hashalom, meaning: May he/she rest

I just discovered that the Jews of Alexandria in Egypt
called it in Hebrew "No Amon".

Close, but no cigar.

The name "No Amon" was not a Jewish peculiarity, but the original
Egyptian name -- not of Alexandria, which was founded much too late,
but of Thebes, which is now called "Luxor" (a corruption of the Arabic
name "al-Aksor", meaning "The Palaces", after the magnificent temple
ruins that exist to this day. "Amon", of course, was the name of the
god that was the patron of the city.

But if you are into otherwise-forgotten place names being used in
Hebrew, consider "Magenza", the Roman name for what is now called
"Mainz"; and "Kushta" for Istanbul, because that was the name of one
of the villages that eventually coalesced, becoming the city of
Istanbul.
