I found the naturalization of my Grandmother's brother Simon Taganski as well as the full name of his wife & daughter.  Very informative.

I assume you want to know when family surnames were required.  In 1807 the Tsar issued an edict requiring family surnames.  I came across an interesting video regarding Jewish surnames on Youtube  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjWfieO49y0

Thank you for this information Catherine.
Are these French naturalizations searchable online? How does one access them? I have a great uncle who was Polish from Warsaw and emigrated to Paris around the turn of the century 1900. How would I go about looking for his naturalization?
I would love to know more information about his parents who are my gr gr grandparents.

The Jablow Family in my tree came from Strassburg, Germany (at the time). Strassburg is right on the border with Poland and flip-flopped country many times. Their original name was Jablonowski. You could try that name.

Cultural Questions Regarding Ancient Jewish Genealogies #general

YaleZuss@...
 

In the ancient world, "genealogies" were usually offered to establish the legitimacy of a ruler.  When such a genealogy states that X was the son of Y who was the son of Z, the purpose was to show that since Z was a legitimate ruler (endorsed by the gods, for example), X is entitled to be recognized as legitimate as well.  This doesn't mean that the genealogical connection, as we understand it today, was false, but whether it actually was genetically correct wasn't a concern.

Re: Naturalizations France #france

tsuri@...
 

Does anyone know how to find naturalization requests that were not actually awarded prior to deportation?
i know that my father in-law filed a request in the 1936-1939 time frame.  He was deported in 1943.

Re: nickname for Miriam? #names

abqsuttle@...
 

I know someone who is of Persian background (non-Jewish) whose name is Maryam. I've always assumed it was a variation of Miriam, not a nickname. My late aunt who was killed in the Holocaust was named Mirjam (German spelling) and her family's nickname for her was Malli.

Re: Best program for large format printable 10 generation family tree chart #general

Russ Maurer
 

It seems to me, whatever language keyboard you have set would be the language that any genealogy program would take. Am I missing something? I just tried it out with GenoPro, the tree program I use, and had no problem using Hebrew by selecting a Hebrew keyboard through the system language setting (this is on a windows box).

As for a large format printout, GenoPro doesn't do fan charts. But if you are ever interested in a traditional tree (ancestors at the top), I have made such printouts from GenoPro by printing to a pdf file with custom dimensions, which I then print at a copy shop that has a banner printer.

Zoommeeting Geni.com - Good for the Sephardim? #sephardic #announcements #events

Ton Tielen
 

Meeting - Sunday 6th September 2020

 

Geni.com aims to build a collaborative family tree of humanity. Many love it. Others - notably Sephardic genealogists - complain that enthusiasts and fantasists on Geni confuse individuals and mangle their family trees.

 

To discuss Geni - the good, the bad, and the ugly - and what might be done to make it more Sephardic-friendly, we welcome one of its principle advocates, Randy Schoenberg. We shall also be joined by Jarrett Ross (the GeneaVlogger, Geni curator and IAJGS Board member) and Jacob Marrache (of Adafina genealogy and a Geni curator). We hope that those with issues with Geni will also join us.

 

Collaborative genealogy has great potential, especially for Sephardic genealogy where there are so many ancestors with similar names. Can we make it better?

 

Topic: Geni.com - Good for the Sephardim?

Time: Sunday Sept 6th, 2020 07:00 PM London (This is 7pm British summer time; GMT +1, which is 2pm in New York)
