ZALMINOVICH/FREYERMAN #belarus

renee1056@...
 

I wish to thank the belarus web page because of all there listings I was
able to find my great grandparents name and discover there true place of
residence. ZALMINOVICH did own a grocery store in Klimovichskii Mogilev
as I was told by my mother about her mothers family. All I had to go on
was that little information about a store and a passport name. I look
forward to new information >from the Belarus web site. This is the first
information that I have found in my three year search. Thank you again
and to all the volunteers that typed it all out. God Bless all of you.
I was also able to locate a cousin on my fathers side because of Romanian
sig. God Bless Joel for doing all the work that he has done. None of
this would have been possible without the Jewish gen web site.

Surnames in Cuba and South America - origins? #general

Ben Fox <bfgp@...>
 

In Latin America (and Spain) it is customary for children to bear
both the father's and mother's surname.
Does anyone know where this traditon originates? I have discovered that
someone on my family tree >from Liepaja (was Libava) in Latvia appeared
to have a double barrelled surname. The first part was a shortened
version of his mother's surname, and the last part was his father's
surname in full.

I am not unsure whether his father's name is double barrelled as well,
or whether the name "Azriel" was a middle name.

Any suggestions would be welcome.
Thanks in advance,

Gail

For example, I was Maria
Fernandez Rosales before I married. Women used their married
names as an addendum to their maiden names. My mother was Nilda
Rosales de Fernandez in Cuba (the "de" means literally "of").
When children were born, they would have a compound surname. If
you didn't have the double surname, people knew you were the
product of a relationship outside of marriage. Women were always
very proud of bearing their father's surname besides their
husbands (at least my mother always was). This custom still
abounds in the Spanish-speaking countries. Hope this helps.
Kindest Regards,
:) Maria Krane <MariaKrane@aol.com>

Looking for descendants of Ishai LUDMER of Bessarabia #general

David and Marcia Chamovitz <chamodm@...>
 

Dear friends,

Marcia Applebaum Chamovitz continues to look for descendents of Ishai
LUDMER of Bessarabia. Her grandmother Chana, went to England and 20 years
later on to Brooklyn; that family we have in great detail. We know there
were 2 siblings (we assumed both males) who went to Argentina on the Wesser
in 1889 and settled in Moisesville. One was Joseph. With the magnificent
assistance of Paul Armony, head of the Argentine JewGen and especially Eve
Gilbert Rosenthal, Director of the M'ville Museum, I have found 130 of his
descendents, thus far, mostly in Rosario but some also in BuenosAires and
the USA.

I just returned >from a trip to Buenos Aires, Rosario, and Moisesville,
Argentine and found that the 2nd "brother" was Eva Yocheved Ludmer who
married Yitzchak HELMAN (called ELMANT on the Wesser manifest.) Data of
her grandchildren is now coming in.

I would appreciate information on relatives of Joseph Ludmer and Eve Helman.

Chicago, Illinois--the Cook County Archives #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

A while ago, I visited the Cook County Archives (Chicago, Illinois)
for a second visit--for 2 eight-hour days. So, of course, now I am
an expert!

Chicago has always had one of the largest communities in the United
States, so perhaps information on this city will be of interest to a
few readers.

As an out-of-towner, I was in a great rush to look up my names. A few
weeks earlier, I was unprepared for my first visit to the Archives--and
thus was terribly inefficient at looking up my names. Before my second
visit, I took stock of the organization of materials at the Archives.
This made my second visit wonderfully more relaxed and productive.

In case it is of value to anyone, I offer this inventory of searchable
materials at the Cook County Archives. I hope that those readers who
are more knowledgeable will help to correct my errors and omissions.

Note please:

o The list below is not absolultely complete. But I do hope
you find it useful.

o I am not really an expert. I am just sharing info that I
have collected.

o The staff at the Cook County Archives are very helpful!

Re: GATTIN - possible origin #general

It looks like Ascher refers to the newborn also.
I am left with only Rifka(=Rebecca) as the spouse's first name.

Next step is to research a Romanian database to find out the maiden name.
But how?

Thanks Michael,
I read the name >from a German birth certificate for Alfred SCHLANGER. It
states:

If "Gattin" means spouse in German, it's obvious the remainder Rifka, Asher
must be the name. However, now I am not sure if Rifka or Asher is the
family name, or if both are first names. Any suggestions?

Caution: The word Gattin is German for wife/spouse.

It is not impossible that someone somwhere mistook the word Gattin as a
woman's maiden name, and that it was subsequently handed down the
bureaucracy ladder.

In Romance languages (and both Romanian and Italian are Romance langueges)
Gattti, Gatto etc means "cat" and it could be a form for the common Jewish
(Kohanic) name KATZ. Certain areas of Yugoslavia (e.g. Trieste) were
Italian-speaking. I am not sure whether the Italian author A. Gatti, who
wrote "Ilia ed Alberto" (1931) was Jewish.

On the other hand GATTIN may be a variant of GOIETIN, the name of a famous
Hungarian family of rabbis, orientalists and experts on Arab and on French
literature and history.

It is not impossible that someone somwhere mistook the word Gattin as a
woman's maiden name, and that it was subsequently handed down the
bureaucracy ladder.

In Romance languages (and both Romanian and Italian are Romance langueges)
Gattti, Gatto etc means "cat" and it could be a form for the common Jewish
(Kohanic) name KATZ. Certain areas of Yugoslavia (e.g. Trieste) were
Italian-speaking. I am not sure whether the Italian author A. Gatti, who
wrote "Ilia ed Alberto" (1931) was Jewish.

On the other hand GATTIN may be a variant of GOIETIN, the name of a famous
Hungarian family of rabbis, orientalists and experts on Arab and on French
literature and history.

Yachet may be Yokheved originally although some say Yehudit. I had a friend
in Pittsburgh named Henrietta whose Jewish name was Yachet. Yetti is often
a nickname for Yenta.
