Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

While analyzing the 23-page document with 200 records I recently
received >from the Minsk Archives, I have discovered about 20 new family
names (some variants) of those married into our TALALAY family of
Mogilev city and nearby villages: Vorotinschtina agricultural colony,
Zaverezhye, Gorki, Chaussy. These are mainly birth, death, marriage
records.
Almost all of the names are represented in the Mogilev Birth Index and
other databases on Belarus SIG.
In some cases, 1-2-3-4 children of a couple are listed. If any of these
families are of interest, please contact me for more information.
A separate message is posted for each new name in line with proper
heading policy.

tables for grouping the various shtetls in sub-regions .

Various Lifshitz related extracts >from the Ellis Island database, the
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland Project, and the JewishGen Family Finder index ; and


A yahoo Lifshitz family listserver at
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Lifshitz/ established by Anthony Jackson

The Lifshitz family website now also has
An expanded set of notes on alternative versions of the origin of the
name of Lifshitz.

Two Lifshitz related coats of arms

An extract of the Polish Jewish Records files on the Lifshitz family
names by gubernia [ shtetl name and (appx distribution of Lifshitz names by
gubernia) Galicia 37%; Grodno 11% ; Lomza 10% ; Warszawa 9% ; Kalisz 8% ;
Plock 8% ; Keilce 4% ; Radom 4%; Lublin 3%; Suwalki 3%; Siedlce 2%

Velky Mager vs. Velky Meder #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Apologies for any confusion created by my previous response. These are indeed two different places and I was able to find Velky Mager when I looked a little harder.

According to the Slovak geographical register at
http://www.hungary.com/corvinus/lib/hmcb/hmcb13.htm

Velky Meder was Nagymegyer and Zlate Klasy-Rastice is the Slovak name
for Nagymagyar. Velky Mager was also called Magendorf or Gross
Magendorf.

Velky Mager is located at 48 degrees N 17 E
Velky Meder is 47 degrees N 17 E.

I think that I now have this straight!

Help requested re our pending visit to Germany #germany

DWSAnes@...
 

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:

1. We are looking for Birth, Marriage and Death Records for the years
prior to 1850 in the following communities in Hessen--Sterndorf, Romrod,
Borken, Marburg, Bad Wildungen, Dalheim and even Darmstadt and Kassel
proper.

2. Any contacts in Hamburg as to ships list prior to 1860.
Thanks in advance.

Donald W. Stein, M.D. Oro Valley, AZ DWSAnes@aol.com

MODERATOR NOTE: An extended discussion of helpful tips for researchers
visiting Germany appeared here some time ago when Michael Bernet was
preparing for his trip.

On his return, he kindly posted a list of further tips based upon his
experience there. Perhaps Dr. Bernet has copies of this. Surely he
can advise you when his trip took place which will help you find the
information in the GerSig Archives. Gute Reise! MOD1

Re: the name Zettchen = Lisette #germany

Jeanette R. Rosenberg <106503.3561@...>
 

I have a number of femail relatives called Zettchen listed in my family
tree. In all cases Zettchen is the diminutive or shortened form of the
name Lisette - this name frequently appears in my family tree. Where the
name Lisette appears, the family all came >from the NordRhein Westphalia
area.

This name is completely distinct >from Jettchen Jutte or Jette- which are
the diminutives of Henriette - another frequent occurrence in my tree.
It differs also >from Nettchen which is the shorter versions of my own first
name - Jeanette (And there are so many of these in my tree it is hard to
imagine that I could ever have had any other first name!!)

I hope this helps
