Re: Jewish and non-Jewish families sharing the same last name: LEWAK #belarus

My gggfather Boruch TRUMPER lived and died in Mstibovo, Volkovysk.
I have found a lot of non-Jewish people surnamed TRUMPER around
the world, but a few of Jewish ones. Also I have not found any
(except one) Trumper searching in All Belarusian Database.

I guess some migration history involving Great Britain and Holland
to Lithuania, but I have not proofs.

May be the mystery of same surnames in Jewish and non-Jewish people
is one of the several reasons that help us to understand how after
more than 2000 years of persecution we are alive, and trying to dive
in our past.

Dear all,

All the messages so far in this discussion have had the conclusion that
Christians families with the same surname as your Jewish ancestors must have
converted at any time in history. This is my two cents to the discussion:

It's a wellknown fact that many Eastern European surnames appears in Jewish
as well as Christian families, without any connection between the two
groups. One good source for this discussion is Alexander Beider's two books
about surnames in the Russian empire and the Kingdom of Poland. Sometimes
the Jewish and the Christian surnames have different origin and sometimes
they have the same origin.

Why did Jews used the same surnames as Christians? There is no absolute
answer to this, but there are some things that can be a part of the reason:

*Toponymic surnames derived >from placenames is known to have been used by
both Jews and Christians.

*Surnames going back on characteristics for the bearers could naturally be
used both by Jews and Christians.

*Very few Eastern European Jews had surnames before 1800, while Christians
used surnames much earlier. Even if the authorities wanted Jews to adopt
surnames that would distinguish them >from the Christians, certainly many
Jews took surnames that already were in use in the Christian society around
them.

To round of, I'm giving one example >from my own family on a surname that
seems to have been used by both Jews and Christians in the former Russian
empire:

*The surname NEMETS, with many different derivates as for example NEMTSOV,
NEMCHENKO, NEMTSOVITSKIJ, NEMCHIK etc, all goes back to the Slavic world
"nemets/nemec", which today means "German". In old days it was used for
people who spoke with an accent as well as dumb/mute ones. These surnames
are not uncommon among Jews, but it seems like they were even more common
for Christians all over Eastern Europe.

Folks,

JewishGen is receiving an increasing number of complaints
regarding unsolicited mail >from a variety of organizations of
potential Jewish interest, as well as plain vanilla SPAM >from all
kinds of businesses.

To help you all better understand the situation here are some
pointers.

JewishGen does not ever sell or lend to any organization the e-mail
addresses or names of the subscribers to any of our lists.

The JewishGen Discussion Group is mirrored to the Usenet
newsgroup soc.genealogy.jewish and is therefore a public list.
Not only are our archives searchable by anyone with an interest,
messages can be retrieved >from soc.genealogy.jewish and archived
in programs such as Dejanews <www.deja.com>

If you are subscribed to one of the SIG or Research Group mailing
lists hosted by JewishGen, be assured that these are not public
but private lists. These messages are not mirrored to anything,
only subscribers to the list may post or receive the messages.
While it is true that 'outsiders' could search the SIG or Research
Group archived messages, they would have to know how to find
them. Not an impossible task, if you know where to look.

The only other way we have of protecting these lists and the e-mail
addresses of the subscribers if by relying on the integrity of the
subscribers. While some of you may believe that you are helping
people by providing their names to other lists, this is a violation of
the way JewishGen operates the private list. Please, under no
circumstances provide information >from a private list to anyone.

The most secure way of protecting lists is through passworded
access, however programs of that nature would cost us $50,000
if not more. We do not have that kind of financial strength, nor do
we have the 'volunteerpower' to set up a help desk where people
can report abuse. A good bit of this you can do on your own when
you receive unsolicited mail.

First address the abuse division of the ISP >from whence the
message came. For example if it came >from XYZ.com you'd
address abuse@XYZ.com, include a copy of the unsolicited mail
as well as the full header and advise abuse@XYZ.com that you
have received unwanted mail >from one of their users and since this
is a violation of any user agreement you would appreciate if they
would take the appropriate steps in cancelling the account.

Second when you get SPAM messages, check to see if you have
ever posted a message to any usenet newsgroup. If you can verify
that you have not and think the message may have originated
because of your address being in a SIG or Research Group mailing
list, please notify support@jewishgen.org giving all the particulars.

We hope this helps you to better understand the situation on all
levels. JewishGen is concerned, but as you can see there is little
we can do to prevent your addresses >from being captured by
SPAMMERS.

Re: Missing NYC marriage certificate #belarus

Dave Lewak <dlewak@...>
 

I think you may have to ask the question "How were they married?"
If they had a marriage certificate through a federal court, you
may have to look through federal archives; if it was a state or
city court, you would have to look through a corresponding archive.

There are multiple archives in NYC for federal, state, city and
borough, you'll have to find the correct archive. If they were
married by a rabbi only, you may to look in a separate archive.

Take a look at the following url, it documents a number of archives
