"signature" in 1800 on ViewMate #general

c.feldeb@...
 

Dear Genners,

My ancestor (gggg-grand-father) Mose LAZARUS was born in Bruxelles
(Brussels-Belgium) in 1800.
I have his birth certificate and I am puzzeld about what his father Elias
put as a "signature" (in yiddisch ?).
Until recently I thought Elias wrote his name, but the grand-mother of a
friend thinks it is something else.
Could someone help with a translation or give an explanation ?

Please see
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3D1846

On the same document, the mother -Roza Mose (born about 1772) - is
*native* >from *Kemniop* in Germany.
I never could find out where this town was located. Any ideas ?

Thank you.

I have posted on Viewmate a photograph taken >from the Yizkor Book of
Szumsk (Shumskoye) in Ukraine.
This picture also appears in a *Souvenir Journal* dated March 16, 1946
for a dinner for the Shumsker Relief Society held at Garfein's (no place
indicated). In this the picture is captioned *Finkelstein's House.*

I would like to know the source of this picture and the caption.
I presume the house mentioned is the two-story building in the
background. Who was the Finkelstein whose house this was?

The dinner journal is in English and Yiddish. The English portion makes
no mention of the picture. None of the list of names of the committee
and society includes the name Finkelstein.

This is in Viewmate 1842:

Identify Czech hero on stamp VM1841 #general

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear JGenners,

My father was in the Czech army stationed in France in 1940.
He was evacuated to England in July and served in the Czech Army in
England. Therefore, I have been researching the exiled Czechs. The
Czech government in exile in England during WWII issued stamps of
which I have several. I came across this stamp in the collection
that is shown at VM1841.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=1841

I believe that >from left to right these are Eduard Benes, Tomas Masaryk, and ??
Who is the man on the right? I am guessing that it is Ludvik
Svoboda, but I do not really know what he looked like. Can anyone
help identify the man on the right?

Please respond to me directly.

Many thanks for your help,

Tom Weiss

City of Triest is Maiden Name #general

I assume that Triest refers to the Italian city of Trieste that in 1875
would have been within the Austro Hungarian Empire.

I do not think it has anything to do with the city of Triest, normally
the "geb. Triest" refers to mother's maiden name.

Shalom,

It seems to me quite probable that someone was living in one town and
working in another.
In my family, the eldest brother of my father was a furrier.
He had a family - wife and children in Zawiercie and worked in Krakow,
more than 100 km away.
He was coming home every two or even three weeks, on Sundays, by train.
That's a reality of life when you have to do for living.

I have posted Yiddish descriptions found on the backs of two
