Overlap areas with Litvak Sig: Donations #belarus

LindaJim Morzillo <jmorzil1@...>
 

I was trying to organize my annual donations and I am now getting a little
confused about some of the districts covered by Litvak SIG and Belarus SIG.
My Litvak SIG donation envelope shows Oshmiany District and Lida District,
both of which are in Belarus today, or at least parts of them. The
political borders, of course, have changed over the years, so it is not a
clear-cut determination in that respect.

My question is: Which SIG is actually covering these two areas, or are they
both (hope we don't get duplication of work), or are they sharing the work?
I'm sure I am not the only one who needs some clarification on this. To
which SIG should I be sending my donation to support work related to those
two areas?

MODERATOR'S NOTE: For records >from the Lida District, both LitvakSIG and the Lida District Researchers under Belarus SIG are working to acquire and translate records, and are in communication with each other to ensure there is no duplication. If you can possibly contribute to both efforts, it would be much appreciated and will maximize the ability to get Lida District records.

Maharshal is most probably an acronym for a famous rabbi. They're very often
referred to with acronyms

Grodno ancestors' arrival - EIDB with Morse's Help #belarus

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Dear Marlene et al:

If I read your message too quickly and missed this, forgive the
redundancy. But had you tried the Steve Morse sites, which adapt the
EIDB search to special Jewish needs, and permit looser search
constraints?

If you put in your names, and let the search engine do a D-M soundex
search, you stand a very strong chance of finding your people as long
as they arrived between 1892 and 1924.

(Possibly June 14,1897 to Dec 16, 1900 won't be included, as EI was
closed by the infamous fire for that period.Those records are from
the Barge Office, and if needed, perhaps someone else - of even
JGen's site - can tell how to access them.)

These two addresses have served in the past to access Morse's search:

Good luck.

Two questions about naming conventions #belarus

Judith Kunofsky <kunofsky@...>
 

Friends:

(1) Have others seen cases of a woman (born around 1815) giving her
children her own father's last name? Given the times, I presume she was
married to her children's father.

(2) Have others seen cases of this following: a man has a son by a first
wife, and much younger children by a second wife. His first son gives some
of his own children the same names as the names of his young step-brothers.

As you can probably guess, I'm trying to solve some puzzles!

Re: Maharshal #ukraine

Haviva Langenauer <havival@...>
 

There was a question on the meaning of Maharshal when used for Rabbi Shlomo
Luria.
The Hebrew is Morenu ha-Rav Shlomo Lura, and it means "Our teacher, the
Rabbi, Shlomo Luria." The Encyclopedia Judaica tells us that few
biographical details are known about him, but he was important in talmudic
commentaries. If you can trace your ancestry to him and can connect to the
Katzenellenbogen family, you have an illustrious ancestry and might even be
connected to Rashi.

Re: Zettchen #germany

Yekkey@...
 

My great grandmother and her grandmother were both named Jettchen.
I wonder if the J looked like a Z.

As for Matilda, I wonder if she was a second wife. Prior to the era of
modern Obstetrics women died in childbirth frequently and men took second
wives. Best regards,

Searching: UTTAL, Kovno #rabbinic

Nancy Dolin <nuttal@...>
 

There's a family story going around that UTTAL (pronounced you-tall)
is an acronym for Yom Tov LIPMANN connected with one of the famous
rabbis. Ed Cohler has confirmed this is possible as it is spelled
yud, vav, tet, lamed. YIVO has confirmed that the abbreviation for
Yom Tov is yud, vav, tet, but YIVO couldn't find a listing for UTTAL
as a Jewish surname nor have I found it on Jewishgen.org. I want to
find text that shows one of the rabbis' names abbreviated in this
form. There are various spellings of this name: UTAL, YUTAL, and
YUTTAL.
