Dear Rinnah

According to my dictionary a Bottcher (umlaut on the o) is a cooper, which
I believe is someone who makes barrels.

Elimelech #general

dov & varda epstein <yknow@...>
 

On Elimelech;
Elimelech is a key figure in the beginning of Megilat Ruth. He was
an important man. He was an Ephratite (an elite class), >from Bethlehem. He
was the husband of Naomi, and the father inlaw of Ruth. Tradition has it
that >from Ruth's bloodline will come the Messiah. He left Israel during a
famine, because he was wealthy and had enough food stored to feed all of
Israel, but was afraid that all would come and beg him for food.There is
one opinion that says his misdeed at leaving was compounded by the fact
that all the inhabitants of Bethlehem at this time were relatives.
Elimelech's name signified his arrogant attitude. He would boast; Eli
tavo malchut-' to me shall come kingship'.
Sorry he doesn't have a more kindly story...this is of course, a
shortened version. For more, see The Book of Ruth. Art Scroll has a very
good English version with lots of commentaries related to this subject.

Dear fellow Genealogists,

Please take a look the the two viewmate pictures I have posted on the
Jewishgen webiste. Perhaps you could help me sort out these two missing
links. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated as these two items have
stumped me for years.

The pictures and descriptions are located at :
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/), files VM284 and VM285.

Both are of missing family members. I am certain that they originally
survived the holocaust.

Thanks for your time.

searching for Aaron I. Kaufman's relatives #general

SWILETS...
 

Searching for relatives of Aaron I. Kaufman and Isidore Kaufman. Their
parents lived at [ ] Park Avenue, Perth Amboy, N.J. about 1918-1925
(probably). All were born in Belarus.
Aaron, a dentist, was listed at [ ] Fox St., N.Y., N.Y. in 1923. Also
listed at [ ] E.167th St., in 1953-55.
Aaron, born in 1899, died in 1955 in New York City and Isidore died in WW1
in 1918 in France.
Aaron doesn't appear on ssdi records and Isidore died before there was
social security.
Aaron married when he was in his 40s and had no children.
I believe there was a sister but I know nothing about her.
I'm hoping that perhaps her descendants are known to someone.
Thank you for any help.

Cherry (Cherasni) Cherry (Cherasni) surname #general

Deja User <gc26@...>
 

I've been researching my family history and have been trying to get
information about the surname Cherry. My grandfather and his brother were
Isidore and Hyman Cherry, and were >from the Ukraine. I had always been
told that the name had been changed >from a name that sounded like
"Cherashny", and that meant "cherry" in Russian. I recently came across a
listing on the Ellis Island Wall of Honor web site for a David and Matilda
(Cherasni) Cherry >from Chednev, Russia, which I believe is in the Ukraine.
Unfortunately, the web site does not list contact information for their
family. If anyone has information about this family, or other families
named Cherry (or Cherashny) >from the Ukraine, please get in touch. Thanks.

Re: CRISTOL #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Cristol is a variation in spelling of the name Cristall (that is how my
family spelled it). In Russian it starts with a K. It is in Beider's
book under a number of spellings and >from lots of places.

Precious and semi-precious stones were a common source of family names
when those were taken or assigned. Garfinkle is carbuncle, Diamond,
Cristall, and more are pretty common in Russian areas.

My Cristall family was >from Ukraine, so we probably aren't related.

Re: Unsolicited Surname Information Requests #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

May I apologize to you for the genealogical community. Most of us
welcome a possible new relative (if we didn't we wouldn't be here).
There is no way that anyone can say that a certain surname is related to
you only if the person comes >from one certain town. Most of our
ancestors moved around a great deal-voluntarily and otherwise. That is
one reason that JRI-PP and its equivalents are so useful; I found a
marriage record for my 2nd gr gf's brother in a small town near the town
I know-that is the only record I have found of the family as the exact
town's records are gone.

I have some common surnames (Hirsch and Loewenstein for 2 examples) and
have gotten many emails >from descendants of both these names >from
different countries. All I can do is say sorry, it doesn't appear we
are related. In fact, I don't know exactly where my Loewensteins came
from so I have looked at the records of a couple of these non-relatives
ancestors to try and find mine. They are thrilled and want me to do
more, but they aren't mine-they only get what I did.

One thing that I find with email is that often it gets overwhelming. I
have sometimes gotten 100 or more emails in a day-usually when someone
tries to start a new mailing group and everyone copies everyone with
"Great, I'm interested." Well, getting 100 of those messages is enough
to lose interest.

I am sure that you must have caught your Greenblatt person on such a
day. We all try to be helpful and friendly, but sometimes...

Your remarks are very pertinent. We all try to be tolerant, but
sometimes we have bad days, hopefully only a few of them.
