It is my understanding that the Numident is a digital extraction >from the
SS5. The SS5 may well have information that the Numident does not. As it
is a product of extraction, the Numident could also contain errors and
misreadings of the original SS5.

Always go for the SS5 if it is available.

Are there differences between an SS5 and a NumIndent extract from
social security records? In particular, if the NumIndent does not have
details on the parents of the deceased, is that because the SS5 does
not have it? Or will I get additional information >from the SS5?

Re: Hebrew equivalent of Jewish names #poland

Shlomo Wygodny <wygodny@...>
 

Thank you all for the detailed answer. I understand that there is no Hebrew
equivalent for names; what I was looking for is some tools for grouping of
Jewish names, like the Soundex for surnames. I use this to try and unite
various records of my WYGODNY family; just sorting by first name as-is will
not work, since it will put a Polish birth record for Hinda far away >from an
Ellis Island record of Ginda - although they may be the same person.

Therefore, I created a translation system to transfer the name to a
"standard" writing - not necessarily Hebrew. However, for me it is difficult
to know that "Ginda" is in the same group as "Hinda", and not in the group
of "Genia" (which for me sounds equally similar). Similarly, I cannot know
that Pesche and Pesla are similar, and that they have any connection to
Bat-Sheva (or Batya). The given name database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames/
also does not show that. So, for me these hints were quite useful.

Does someone know what is the Hebrew equivalent of the following Jewish
names? They all appear in records related to my family. I use the Hebrew
name as index for "uniting" different records of the same person.
As has been remarked here innumerable times, there is no such thing as a
unique
"equivalent" for names. "Equivalent" may mean translation, phonetic
similarity,
or something else. What I can offer is only to identify the source language
for
those names the source of which I know, and the literal meaning in English
where I know it. Note that several of the names are already in Hebrew, so
their
equivalence is clear.

Bajla - Slavic "White"
Bina -Hebrew "Understanding/Wisdom"
Blima -German (Bluma) "Flower"
Celeja
Cyrla
Czarna -Slavic "Black/Dark/Swarthy"
Genia -Slavic (abbrev of Eugenia) "Wellborn"
Ginda -Same as Hinda/Chinda below (Russian replacement of H)

Idesa / Ides

Pesche -Same as Pesla below (both diminutives)
Pesla -Hebrew (Batsheva)

Poland--Cemeteries (near Radomsko and Czestochowa) #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

The hard work of Jeff Cymbler will now benefit anyone with family who
lived in the Radomsko-Czestochowa area: Jeff has
transcribed/transliterated/interpreted over one thousand
tombstones--mostly for the cemetery in Zarki, but also for the few
stones that remain in Plawno/Gidle, Mstow, and Janow.

Leah Jordan Bisel did all of the typing. Udi Cain helped me to
understand the Hebrew dates, and David Simon Bendory converted all of
our dates >from Hebrew to non-Hebrew format. My thanks to all three
of them! Madeleine Okladek will now begin proofing.

My thanks also go to two "assistants" (by the names of Nowak and
Broszkiewicz) both of whom, as residents of Radomsko, came to the
Zarki cemetery and spent over 10 hours with me taking photographs of
the tombstones.

Somehow, I like to announce a project a little before completion.
Here, in case it is of value to you, is a list of those tombstones
with enough information to make a family connection:

Mlawa Shtetl Co-op and fundraising for JewishGen #poland

Harriet Brown <hnbrown@...>
 

Dear Chevre,

I'm writing to urge each and every one of you to make a contribution to
JewishGen today. Not only is it the right thing to do, to support the
service that hosts JRI-Poland and scores of other important projects, but
it's the practical thing to do.

I'm the coordinator for the Mlawa Shtetl Research Group. My team has been
working very hard for the last year to finish indexing one of the three LDS
films of Mlawa and get it on-line into JRI-Poland's database. Well, I
finished proofing the last spreadsheet about a month ago and sent it off.
Nothing happened. I inquired about why, and was told that because of
JewishGen's extremely urgent financial needs, no new data would be posted
until those needs had been met.

I think this is more or less fair (though I for one was unaware of this
policy--maybe I missed something in an announcement?). We all need to come
together and support JewishGen, which in turn supports all of our wonderful
projects. If everyone who reads this list gave $5, I bet JewishGen would be
a lot closer to reaching its financial goals.

And for all you out there with an interest in Mlawa, take heart.
Information is coming soon.

Best,

Harriet Brown
