Ketuba: Yiddish or Hebrew?--and what it can tell you #general

MBernet@...
 

A recent posting asked whether a Ketuba is in Yiddish or Hebrew.

The traditional Ketuba is written in Aramaic with a few Hebrew
phrases (particularly the date and location); in Israel today, I
believe, it is sometimes all Hebrew. In some branches of Judaism
the Ketuba is written in the local language, e.g. English, and
there is always an option to have a local-language Ketuba, too;
often it's printed on the back of the traditional one.

I very much doubt that Ketubot were written in Yiddish in the 19th
century.

Also, the traditional Ketuba uses the formal Hebrew names for both
bride and groom. The surname is not usually given, only the Hebrew
names of the two partners and the names of their respective fathers.
Unless one has some idea of time, location, Hebrew name of bride
and groom, or fathers' name, it would be hard to determine whether
a specific Ketuba is that of an ancestor known primarily by surname.

The T'naim, on the other hand, contract at time of engagement, might
very well have been in Yiddish.

I've finally been able to view the specific ketuba and I will relay
the personal details privately, as requested. The ketuba was printed
in Cheethan, Manchester, UK, in standard Aramaic and Hebrew. I can't
make out any surnames (if there are any), but the groom was a Levite,
which might help confirm or eliminate the question about whose ketuba
it was.

A Ketuba was commonly preprinted. The handwritten info useful to
researchers includes:
- date (in Hebrew)
- name of bride and groom (Hebrew) and their fathers (Henrew)
- whether the bride (but not the groom) is unmarried, widowed or
divorced
- the amount of the "official" dowry (usually a standard 100 zuzim;
which is halved in the case of a previously married woman), and then
the groom "generously" doubles the standard sum (he is free to add
more money, which may or may not be recorded in the ketuba)

Aramaic Katubot- Not Yiddish or Hebrew! #general

Connie Fisher Newhan
 

Just wanted to let you know that I have been set straight and I
now know the katubot on VM2038 is written in Aramaic, not Yiddish
or Hebrew. Of course, it goes without saying, I can't read Aramaic
either!

Best regards,

FRISCHMAN-SCHWARTZ/SHMULEWITZ- some success #romania

Yehuda L Frischman <rebyidel@...>
 

I again want to thank the many of you who have helped me unravel the
mystery of our Yichus, in Europe, Scranton, and Israel. B"H I have
clearly tracked my paternal great-grandparents back to Europe: My
father's father's family FRISCHMAN to Beregszasz, now in the Ukraine,
and just a few miles >from Munkacz, and my father's mother's family
SCHWARTZ to Michalovce/Revisce, just across the border in Slovakia, and
also just 20 or so miles >from Munkacz. It also turns out that my
father's grandfather's mother's maiden name was SHMULEWITZ, and so either
the Scranton name change I mentioned in an earlier email was from
SCHWARTZ to SHMULEWITZ and not visa-versa as I previously reported, or
the Shmulewitz's were cousins and not brothers of my ggf Josef SCHWARTZ.
There are still many other unanswered questions, particularly on the
FRISCHMAN side, so any additional help is sincerely appreciated.

Authenticating Romanian Birth/Marriage Certificates #romania

Michael Pearl <mpearl@...>
 

I have engaged a genealogical researcher in Iasi and begun to receive
supposed copies of birth and marriage certificates for the period between
1850-1900. Can anyone suggest an authoritative third party that can
substantiate the authenticity of these documents?

Some of the documents appear to be recent transcriptions but without any
sort of State Seal or other governmental mark to substantiate their origin.
I have got to be as sure as possible that the documents provided are not
bogus.

Thanks to any and all for your anticipated help in this matter.

Please respond privately unless you have suggestions of a
general nature on how to find corporate archives.
Don't know if this will help. Most newspapers have an Action
Line or something similar where people can email or write in
for help and Action Line or its counterpart will make efforts
to find the corporate entity. Some times they even reach a party
who has the info and offers to send it to you. It's a free
service of the newspaper.

Also if I remember correctly Sylvania was a major brand sold
only by Sears, now it is Kenmore. Try looking under that brand
name....and contact Sears too.
