JGS/S.Alberta -Calgary: Meeting Monday, Jan. 15th #general

haflo <haflo@...>
 

Dear Members & friends,

We have a fascinating & informative program lined up for you for Monday,
January 15th. None of you will want to miss this!

A major problem for those of tracing family >from Eastern Europe, has always
been the seemingly arbitrary change of borders. Consequently, it was easier
for our predecessors to say that they came >from "Russia". A city that was
in Poland one week, became part of the Ukraine the next!! Similar chaos
creates obstacles for accessing documents in Bessarabia, Moldova, Romania,
Galicia, Belarus, etc.

On Jan. 15th, Heather Coleman who is Assistant Professor of History and
Co-coordinator for Central and Eastern European Studies at the University
of Calgary, will be speaking to us about "The Changing Borders of Eastern
Europe". Her explanations will be illustrated with an overhead projector.
Start thinking about your questions now, as there will be a question &
answer period following her presentation.


PROGRAM: "The Changing Borders of Europe"
SPEAKER: Heather Coleman - Ass't Prof. of History,
& Co-coordinator for Central & E. European Studies at
the University of Calgary
DATE: Monday, January 15, 2001
TIME: 7:00pm
PLACE: Calgary Jewish Community Centre
Room Three
1607-90th Avenue

Re: "Henrietta ' (Need help with profession @names...) #general

NFatouros@...
 

In her 01-13-01 message Pamela Weissberger asked about the names Henrietta
and "Hatty." The name of my father's sister appeared as "Jente" in the
ship manifest but it can also be spelled as "Yenta." I knew her as having
the nickname of Yetta, and also as Henrietta. She and her siblings and
mother came to the US >from Shcherets (Szczerzec) near Lvov, which is now
part of the Ukraine.

Re: Russian female name "Ola" #general

E. Alpern <ealpern@...>
 

Consider the possibility that "Alta" comes >from de Alta, yiddish for the
old person.

It could have been used to honor an elderly person, or you may have
suggested, to give long life to this person, hoping that she would become
an elderly person.

My mother's sister married an older man; he was referred to as "Alter".

In my case, my Yiddish middle name is Velvel; my English middle name is
