Fw: ALTMAN-BULACH-WOLF-TUCHINSKY-KALSKY all from Bessarabia #romania

Marcia Woolf Bulach <mwbulach@...>
 

Hello, I am looking for information on my Greatgrandparents:

a)s Rabbi Chaim ALTMAN (>from Hotin-Bessarabia)-married to Bassi ALTMAN. I
think he died between 1905 and 1909

b) Rabbi Yesrael BULACH/BULAKH (>from Lipcon or maybe Hotin-Bessarabia),
married to Frima. I know that he died when he was in his late
twenties -probably before the turning of last century.

I heard that the BULACH might have come >from a village Bulakhi.
I also heard that there were connections in Kamenetz Podolsk

c) Israjel Myers WOLF married to Ester >from Brzezin-Poland and their
children (believe that they might have died in the Shoah
d) Jacob TUCHINSKY ?TUSHINSKY married to Dobe KALSKY- >from Kiev and their
children

I also heard that there was a 'fetter' Moishe who was married without
children, and who was the owner of the transport system of Odessa and who
suddenly disappeared. No one heard about him again. I believe this would
have been around 1910.


I could not find any other information about them. Does anybody know
where I could find out any other information about them.

Thanks
Marcia Woolf Bulach

ALTMAN (Hotin-Bessarabia; some went to America and
others to Brazil);
BULACH or BULAKH (Lipcon, Hotin-Bessarabia and later to Brazil);
TUSHINSKY/TUCHINSKY (Kiev, Boslev-Boguslav)--Ukraine; Wales,
England and Brazil;
WOLF or WOOLF (Brzezin-Poland), Wales, England and Brazil

I reread the articles on King David lineage by David Einsiedler and didn't
spot any reference to William the Conqueror.
Does anyone know of a connection between King David's and William the
conqueror's descendants?
Yes, they are descendants of Adam and Eve.

Seriously now, why would you expect a relation? As far as I know, my
maternal grandfather and my paternal grandfather were not related to each
other (except that they were both descendants of Samuel the prophet).

Dear Allan:

Where does Upper Silesia enter into the equation? Krotoschin is in
Posen, Breslau in Middle Silesia, and Danzig next to East Prussia on
the Baltic--the other side of modern Poland >from Upper Silesia.

Now, SCHIMMEK may well be equivalent to GRZIMEK--and the famous
naturalist was indeed >from Silesia. Don't think he was Jewish, though.

Neither HELD nor SCHIMMEK appears among the register of Middle- and
Upper-Silesian Jewish citizens published in 1814.

That said, there were plenty of DANZIGERs and BRESLAUERs, and even a
KROTOCZINER in that register.

Re: Jews of Saxony near Galicia ("Konigshain") #poland

I think the "village named Konigshain" could be the one named "Konigstein."
In my usual sources, online or in books, I have not found any place, called
"Konigshain." Perhaps this was a misspelling or mishearing of "Konigstein,"
pronounced as "Konigshtein" in German.

My 1962 Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer has three listings for places named
Konigstein. One is a very small village) in the Upper Palatinate, central
Bavaria, northwest of Amberg. A second listing is for "Kongstein im Taunus,
which is in the former Prussian province of Hesse-Nassau, in West Germany.

But the one in which Ms. Mevorach may be interested is the Konigstein in
Saxony, (population 5,139). It is in East Central Germany, in Saxonion
Switzerland, and located on the Elbe Riiver, 7 miles east southeast of Pirna.
It was used in both World Wars as a prison camp.

Ms. Mevorach may want to find this Saxony Konigstein on an online or paper
map to see how close it is to "Gorlitz" which I suggest may be Gorlice or
"Gorlitza," which is southeast of Krakow and east of Sanz.


Also, she may also try doing a "google" search (http://www.google.com)
typing in the search box "Jews of Saxony." I just did this and turned up
several websites, one of which mentions a book "The Migration and Settlement
of Jews in Saxony, 1834-1933, by Solvejg Hopner. But there are several more
sites which Ms. Mezorach should visit, including one which concerns the
rights of Jews in Saxony (granted in full in 1837) and the construction of
the Semper Synagogue in Dresden.

I myself did not have the time, patience or genealogical interest to click
on all the sites to read

Re: Given name "Pesia" #general

Howard Zakai
 

Hello,

My grandmother Pauline was called Pessie by her family. Her ketubah says
"Pesel." I believe the name is a Yiddish variant of the Hebrew Batya, or the
Anglicized Bithia, who was the step-mother of Moshe in the Bible.

given names Nosel, Nisel; Natan, Yonatan #general

Howard Zakai
 

Dear Genners,

I'm afraid I need a crash course on the given names Yonatan and Natan, as
well as the Yiddish names of Notel, Nosel, Nisel, Nusan.....

I am aware that Yonatan, (King Saul's son and David's good friend) means
"G-d's gift." I also know that Natan (a prophet who warned King David re:
Batsheva) means "to give." Two distinct names, >from the same root.

My first question is whether they have separate Yiddish equivalents. Can
Nosel, Nisel, Notel, Nusan, etc... apply to both Hebrew names? An uncle of
mine was Rabbi Chaim Notel, but his full name was Chaim Yonatan. I guess
perhaps in having Yiddish equivalents, anything goes, right?

My second and more bewildering question is the difference, if any, among all
of those Yiddish names. I ask because in a record >from Kvedarna (former
Kovno Gubernia, modern Lithuania), a man named Nosel Glick was the son of
Nisel. Is this possible? If so, what is the difference?

Your wonderful insight is greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Howie Zakai

Meaning of notations on passenger manifests #germany

Michael Marx <mhmarx@...>
 

I found some people I had been looking for in the Ellis Island records.
On the original manifest there is a notation "S I" in the margin by the
names and an "X" drawn across some of the entries on these lines. What is
the significance of these notations? Were these passengers refused entry?
