Marriage of David and Judith Ziants #general

David Ziants <dziants@...>
 

Firstly, thank you once again for all the good wishes on the occasion
of our marriage.

from our engagement announcement I wish to make a correction as
my wife's Hebrew name is Yehudit Shoshanna bat reb Levie and not
as I pre-supposed at that time.
Here is the excerpt >from the announcement message:
"Engagement - David Ziants - Judith Verhoef"
Sun, 26 Nov 2000 09:25:49 +0200
<<<
With great joy I, David Ziants - David Yossef ben Mordechai, originally
from the UK, am pleased to have announced my engagement to Judith
Verhoef - Yehudit Shoshanna bat Yisrael, recently >from Holland.
Judith's mother is Jewish but her father is not and so
I wrote down "Yisrael" as a generic patronymic.

On discussing our names with the Rav (Rabbi) approaching the wedding
we were given the decision that my wife should be known as:
Yehudit Shoshanna bat reb Levie, where Levie was her maternal
grandfather, who perished in the holocaust. He felt that this was
better than other options, like the one I suggested above, or
"bat Avraham" which is used for converts.

I am submitting this to set the records correct.

By the way, in our community, the term "reb" (Yiddish for "Mr.")
is not usually used before the man's name, but the Rav said we
should use "reb" in this case in order not to make confusion with
someone who is "a daughter of the tribe of Levi" - the term
"bat Levi" is used in this context in the Tora.

More about our names can be found in a recent thread:
"The term kinnui" on Mon, 26 Feb 2001 17:01:27 +0200 ,
where I mentioned about the use of our names David Jonathan
vis David Yossef and Judith Roos vis Yehudit Shoshanna.

These messages can be found in the Jewishgen archives by

Is it possible to have two living sons with the names Icek and Ayzyk? #general

Cindy Gallard <dg2286@...>
 

I recently received a translation of a death record which I had
originally gotten >from the Polish Archives. The translation, which was
done by a very competent translator, stated that the deceased was
survived by 4 sons, Icek 18, Zelig 16, Aysyk 15, and Boruch 3. Even
though they are spelled differently, Icek and Ayzyk, as far as I know,
are pronounced the same. Any explanations would be gratefuly received.

1905: "Back to Poland" ? #general

Joel Weintraub <JWeintraub@...>
 

Yes.. people did go back and didn't return. My great grandfather
left the U.S. for his home town in the Ukraine about 1905. Family
lore is that: a. he said people here worked too hard; b. he said
people here were unkind to Jews (but he paid for 2-3 sons to come
here while he was in the U.S. and in total 4 sons came and stayed
here; also in the 1920s my widowed great grandmother came over);
or/and c. there was a family scandal in the U.S. and he left.
During the time he was in this country (about 1900 to 1905) most
of his family remained in the Ukraine. He must have made his
living as a tailor, and seemed to travel quite a bit while in the U.S.

Re: 1905 Back to Poland #general

My gr gr aunt Brina's husband went back to Poland sometime around 1900,
supposedly.

My gr gr uncle came to the US three times before he brought his family
over-because there was not enough "culture" here (Jewish culture).

So, no, it was not strange. We may think they were crazy to go back to
pogroms and such, but they had different ideas.

Unknown Occupation #general

Ilya Zeldes <ilyaz@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I just posted on the ViewMate site
(http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/vm473.html in the "To View" section -
as file - VM473 ) an image of the entry in a column <Occupation> in the
1910 Census.
On the first line, there is an entry, the first word of which, I cannot
decipher. It looks like this person worked in a <Millinery shop>, but the
profession is not understandable and I could not find it in a dictionary.
The word starts with a <P>, but the rest is a mystery. Any suggestions are
appreciated. Please, send all responses to me directly at ilyaz@iline.com
