Re: the name Minka?? #general

I found the name Minka in some papers. I believe it to be a sister to my
great-grandfather. I am assuming its a Yiddish name. Would anyone know
what its equivalent would be in Hebrew??
David Fielker
Minnie, Minna and Mindel were usually given to "match" the Hebrew name
Miriam. So I would expect the same to be true of Minka. As has been
discussed many times before, it is not usually a matter of "equivalence"
but simply of sound-matching.

Regarding Joyce Field's post - I wish that I could amplify further on the
Vilna Gaon Museum Cemetery Indexing Project - but all I know is that it is in process. I am sure that Rachel Kostanian will be happy to answer any
questions as to the status of the project.

Shepsl #belarus

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

One of its diminutives is Shabtl, >from which the Yidish form Shepsl was
derived. In the Ashkenazic accent the "tav" is pronunced as "thav"
I went to grade school with a Shepsie whose name is Moshe. I think
his grandmother thought he looked like a little sheep when he was a
baby.

the name Minka?? #general

Howard Zakai
 

Genners,
I found the name Minka in some papers. I believe it to be a sister to my
great-grandfather. I am assuming its a Yiddish name. Would anyone know
what its equivalent would be in Hebrew?? Or if it has any variants..
Perhaps its a nickname?
TIA

I would appreciate help with VM216, for a new member of our JGS who is not
on-line.

It is a birth certificate >from 1911, fairly short, half in Polish and half

We should also like to know the current name of the birth place.
