Here is what I found.


Kazimiera f Polish - Feminine form of Kazimierz

Kazimierz m Polish - Polish form of Casimir

CASIMIR m English - to destroy greatness >from Slavic kazic "to
destroy" and meri "great, famous". Four kings of Poland have borne this
name, including Casimir III the Great, who greatly strengthened the
Polish state in the 14th century. The name also belonged to Saint
Casimir, a 15th-century Polish prince and a patron saint of Poland and
Lithuania.

HELLER, HABERMAN from Poland to England? #unitedkingdom

mfisaac@...
 

Hi everyone,

I have posted this message on the JewishGen Discussion Group before, but
maybe I'll have some better luck by posting it here on the UKsig:

I'm looking to find out whatever happened to the family of my
great -grandmother's sister Frieda HABERMAN (parents were Ruchel GOLDKRANTZ
and Chaim Yechiel HABERMAN). She was >from Sochaczew, Poland, but then went
to live in England. She married a HELLER (don't know the first name)
probably when they were still in Poland. (Although I'm not quite sure of
this.) They had two children: Rose, who died during the war, and Maude.
(I unfortunately don't know Maude's married name.) Frieda died in March,
1939. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone, or does anyone at least
have any suggestions about how to proceed?

Thanks so much!

EAST LONDON SYNAGOGUE.
Does anyone know if the records >from the East London Synagogue were saved
when it closed,I think in the 1970's.
My grand parents ( ELLMAN ) were married there in 1907.
I was adopted and only found my Jewish birth family a few years ago, so I am
trying to delve deeper into my background.

1901 Online Census - Availability Update #unitedkingdom

Jgsgbccc@...
 

The PRO have just published an updated statement on the likely public
availability of the 1901 Census Online (of England and Wales).
Public testing [likely to be at limited sites such as the Family Record
Centre] will take place, and is due to be completed by the end of August.

The announcemant says:
'We hope to complete this public testing phase by mid to late August.'
Interestingly, it does not specify which year!!!

There are no promises yet on when it will be available 'live' to the public via the Internet.

Further information can be found at:

How do I find details about her parents, siblings and

I don't think that Kazimiera is a typical Jewish name. Probably the
grand- aunt of Yaccov's Polish pal was named in honor of one of the
several Polish kings and several nobles surnamed Kazmierze. In the 17th
century at least one of them, grand duke Jan Kazimierz, granted a number
of privileges to the Jews of Minsk. Whether the great aunt was named
retroactively because of this relatively ancient grant, or for the
beneficence bestowed upon Jews by some other member of Kazimierz "clan",
I cannot say.

Also, Kazimierz or Kazmierz Dolny is a smallish town in Lublin
province.

And, in 1404, a huge fire devastated much of the then Polish capital of
Cracow. Afterwards the king ordered Jews who had been scattered throughout
the city to live apart in Cracow's suburb Kazimierz. It became an
entirely Jewish town. For centuries, its inhabitants led their lives
isolated >from the rest of the world, connected to outsiders only through
whatever economic relationships they could establish.

During the 19th and 20th century Jewish parents abroad and in the US
sometimes endowed their children with names in honor of some important
head of state or government offical who they thought was "good to the
Jews."

I don't recall reading anywhere about given names, male or female, being
place-names (toponyms), so I imagine, perhaps wrongly, that the great-aunt
of Yaacov's friend was named after the Polish Kazimierz family and that
the origins of the great aunt, who is ">from Ivano Frankivsk," were not
necessarily Jewish, although the family of Yaccov's pal could have been
Jewish in the distant past. Quite a few Jews became converts, some
in "good faith," and some as a matter of "convenience."
