Elaine, Are you the Elaine that went to Israel with our group in

I confirmed that my father-in-law (who passed away a couple of
years ago) was a Jew or maybe his father.
I, also recieved a really nice letter >from a man that is distantly

I got in on the program before it was 200+, but I think it is
worth every penny.
In the future they may even put together a DNA family tree diagram
where we can compare our information, those that want to.

Sincerely,
Judy

Hi,

I suggest that it is less disturbing to the flow and less difficult to read=
=20
if you
just skip the accents. It would be best if we could all see them properly.

Re: About accents and umlauts #hungary

Chaim Frenkel <chaimf@...>
 

Would some kind person educate me about the diacritical marks in Hungarian?

I've gotten two conflicting impressions. A vowel with a diacritical mark is
a different letter vs. it is a change of prononciation. Which is it?

And what are the different marks? Do they have names?

And while on the subject of spelling. How did spelling 'styles' change
within Hungary. I've seen the town Vac spelled several different
ways. (I can't recall at this point, but I think the LDS has it as
Vacz. Is this a German vs. Hungarian issue?)

Thanks,

Russian surnames #general

Natalya Zilberman <natalyazilberman@...>
 

Jews in Russia usually chose the surnames that related to what they did for
a living. Even though they were 'Russian sounding' they were not usually
the names an ethnic Russian would use (in order not to be confused with a
Jew). I have not heard of cases where Jews would be allowed to choose a
Hebrew surname in addition. While this could have been taking place in some
areas, it was not the general practice. Jews were somehow acoounted for
(census, taxes), so having two surnames would have had created much
confusion, which authorities did not want to deal with.

are easily categorized alphabetically.

Jeff, there were photos of the Merion and the Columbia, but none for the

Lipsk Poland/Russia #general

Daniel S. Katz <dsk@...>
 

Hi,

I recently discovered family who listed Lipsk, Poland or Russia as
a place of origin in naturalization papers. There seem to be a
number of places called Lipsk according to ShtetlSeeker. Is there
one in particular that is likely to be the place my ancestors
came from?

My guess is the one in Poland near Augustow, at 53733/234000.

If so, are there records available for this Shtetl, or for Augustow?

Thanks,
