I would be willing to type one (especially given the message that followed

In further discussion of "Unsolicited Surname Information Requests":

It would impossible for readers to guess the intentions, goals,
and missions of others. Allow me to explain, for the sake of
illustration and for the sake of my own tree.

My interest in the surnames that I list in my signature is as
follows:

KAZEZ-KAZES: I am interested in all of the Jewish Kazez families
in the world, with any spelling and with any country of origin.

TALMAN: I seek information on all Jewish Talmans >from Poland.
It appears all Jews >from Poland named Talman might be related.

ENGLANDER: Englander is an exceedingly common name among Jews
throughout eastern Europe. I am only interested in Englanders
who are very likely to be related to me.

JURKIEWICZ: For Jurkiewicz, I am still learning; I know little;
I am trying to learn.

STRAUSBERG: Strausberg is the married name >from one branch of my
tree. My interest is very limited indeed!

KIFER: For Kifer, I am in the learning stage.

CZAPNIK: Czapnik is the name--through marriage--for one branch
of my family tree.

OBERMAN-HOBERMAN-GUBERMAN: I have tons of information on Oberman
and (its variants) in Ukraine. I want to learn more.

LISS: I have much research behind me on the Liss families in
Ukraine. I need to learn more.

SOBLE-SOBEL: Soble is the name--through marriage--of one very
large branch of my family tree.

STEIN: Stein, a very common name, is not central to my research.

AXMAN: Axman is a rare name, about which I know almost nothing.

FRESKO-FRESCO and ALHADEFF-ELHADEF: I am trying to learn whatever
I can about Fresko and Alhadeff families >from Turkey, Rhodes,
Aleppo, and other nearby areas.

As you can see >from the list above, when someone contacts me
regarding one of my names, I might be thrilled or not. I would
think, however that those of us who list common names might need
to be ready for frequent queries. Personally, I'd love to have
too much mail, rather then too little.

Potential cousins: my mail box is open, waiting for you to appear!!

Subject: No Russian Language Skills Needed


We have gained a great number of new members since I last post a message
about the "The Jewish Encyclopedia", first published in 1904 by Funk and
Wagnalls Company. This encyclopedia is written in English and there are
a number of articles in it that would be of interest to Belarus
researchers. There are articles on many of the major gubernia and uezd
towns. Because the encyclopedia is over 75 years old, there are no
copyright restrictions on republishing selected articles on the SIG
website. All it takes is going to a library or synagogue that has a set
of this old encyclopedia, xeroxing a few pages, typing them into a MS
Word or similar program document, and emailing the document to Edward
Rosenbaum our SIG webmaster who will find the appropriate place to put
the article on the website. These articles have historical information
as well as names of rabbis and other residents of the location.
Surrounding shtetls and agriculture colonies are also mentioned. Please
see <http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/Minsk%20-%20JE.htm> for the
article on Minsk to get an idea of the material available for other
towns in Belarus.

To avoid duplication of effort, please post a message to the discussion
group so we don't have two people doing the same work.

Re: Job Occupation-Bottcher #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

Can anyone tell me what a Bottcher is?
It's probably an o with an umlaut, and in that case it means a cooper.

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.
