Mordecai HENDELS in Jewish Encyclopedia #rabbinic

Gilbert Hendlisz <gilbert.hendlisz@...>
 

Dear Rav Siggers,

Thanks to Shirley. This encyclopedia is a gold mine. By the way,
looking for my HENDLISZ/HENDELS ancestors I found an entry about a
Mordecai (Gumpel) Ben Eleazar HENDELS who wrote or printed a book in
Amsterdam in 1717/1718 (Segullot u Refuot - appendix to Mesammche
Leb). It is not clear if he was a printer or a writer. Has anyone
heard about him ? Thanks for any information.

Dear Donald:
Check out the web site located at:

Jewish Roots in Berlin

It contains the names of libraries and archives where you might find
family records and documents, as well as hours of operation and
directions to get there.

In October my wife and I are going to spend three weeks in Germany doing
primarily genealogy. We would appreciate any help and/or suggestions
anyone might care to give us including where to look, whom to contact,
possible translators etc. in the following:

A bride's status on a ketubah #rabbinic

MBernet@...
 

I want to prepare a simple guide that will help people with very
limited knowledge of Hebrew, to obtain the necessary facts >from a
ketubah: date, names of parties, location, and status of the
parties.

Are the following the correct terms for a bride's status

maiden: betulta (bet-tav-vav-lamed-tav-aleph)
widow: almanata (alef-lamed-mem-nun-tav-aleph)
divorcee: metarchata (mem-tav-resh-chav-tav-alef)?

Is the groom always simply known as chatan (chet-tav-nun),
irrespective of his pre-marital status?

Please let me know the correct spellings, and any terms I may have
left out.

To what extent is the rule of 100 + 100 zuzin bride price for a
maiden, 50 + 50 for a widow or divorcee, universal across
communities?

Many thanks for all informed information.

Somehow I am not getting full use of the alphabetical index. I can
choose an initial letter for a topic, say T; I then have access to
four pages of topics, alphabetically arranged. In the case of T,
this gets me down to #38, Tam, Jacob b. David. It is very hard for
me to believe that there are no entries beginning with e.g. "Te".
The same is true of other initial letters.

Do others see different behavior? >from the words of praise for the

Biblical Names #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

When searching biblical names (Old and New Testament) try this site:
http://bible.crosswalk.com/
A search will return several references for the same name as found in
various sources. Caveat: the search engine will only produce results
with EXACT spellings. Thus Myriam would result in zero finds while
Miriam would return five. Also one can't use the Hebrew and Latin
variants, like Yitzhak for Isaac or Petrus for St. Peter.
Enjoy

MAGERSDORF was the German name of NAGYFALVA, a village in Vas county,
Szentgotthardi district, which today is in Austria and called
MOGERSDORF. As mentioned previously, seemingly this is not the place
Nadia is looking for.
