London2001 is safe! #general

david fielker <david@...>
 

For those attending the 21st International Conference and are worried by
press reports about foot and mouth disease, we would allay your fears.

1. Foot and mouth disease (called hoof and mouth in the US) has nothing at
all to do with 'mad cow disease'.

2. It is not dangerous to humans and there are no risks attached to
consuming meat or milk.

3. The severe measures being taken to contain it are on the whole for
economic reasons.

4. There are movement restrictions in some countryside areas like the Lake
District and Dartmoor.

5. London has no restrictions at all.

For more information check our Web site at <www.jewishgen.org/london2001>.

We look forward to meeting you there.


Great Grandfather - N.Y-1947 #general

Suzecrazy@...
 

I know that my great grandfather was born in 1859 in Russia. In 1947 he
lived in an apt. bldg at Anthony Ave in the Bronx. I was told that
he was in his 90's and he was working as one of the men that would sit
with a body before burial. I don't know what this is called. Did they do
this in a funeral home? Temple? Does anyone know if there are records of
the people that did this? Thanks again,

Silversmith terms ! #general

Ralph Salinger <salinger@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners:

I am trying to discover what a carver and gilder did at the turn of the
century in London.

Anyone who is aware of terms in the silver-working trade - your
assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks and Chug Samach !

* Re: Hungarian or Yiddish? #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Just to add my 2 cents to this very interesting discussion, born in
Kosice (Kassa), I was raised speaking 3 languages: Slovakian (my
father), Hungarian (my mother and German (my grandmother). We never
spoke yiddish and I never heard somebody in my family or close
relationship speaking yiddish. We did use a lot of yiddish
expressions. Even in concentration camp (Terezin), I don't recall
having heard somebody speaking yiddish. It is my impression (I could
be wrong), that yiddish was only spoken by the very orthodox Jews in
Northern Hungary (Ung, Sziget, Bereg, etc. counties). My mother's
family was orthodox, even so they didn't speak yiddish. They did
speak, once awhile, Hebrew, but their daily language was Hungarian.
German was the lingua franca of educated Jews, Hungarian the common
language and Slovak was spoken by nationalists such as my father.
Keep in mind that we were living under the Czechoslovak Republic and
President Tomas Masarik (after whom I was named) was a very much
admired philo-semite. Even President Benes, who followed Masarik, was
a friend of the Jews. Thus my father was a proud Czech-Slovak (he was
born in Presov-Eperjes).

* don't throw the first stone #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

To all who wish a strictly kosher H-sig, don't be so quick to throw
the stones on me. This was a thread which circulated recently on this
forum. I feel it very much pertinent, actually this is what makes
this forum more human. Please notice that our dear moderator called
the discussion, which was totally out of the subject of genealogy,
"scintillating".

Ease up folks :-)

Proof of name change #hungary

"My maternal grandfather was born in 1888 in Miskolc as Herman BLAU...
When he married, in 1924, his name was Erno BANO...
How can I find out where and when my grandfather changed his name?"
In my experience, birth records are often annotated with name changes.
For example, my maternal GM and her seven siblings were born named NEUMAN
in Murska Sobota, Slovenia in the 2nd half of the 19th century. Her four
brothers changed their name to TIMA'R IN 1917. This fact appears as an
annotation of each of their birth records in the Murska Sobota BMD record
book. I found the same thing of the family of a good friend in Baja, so the
practice must have been quite common.

Good luck, Margarita! I hope this helps.
