Name: Bernhard WEINSTOCK
Birth Date: 22 Aug 1852
Birth Place: Doerzbach
District: Kuenzelsau
Anyone know where this was, particularly the country of this time period?
My comment:

Peculiar that the place could not be found, since both places show up on
contemporary German zip codes:

D-74677 Doerzbach
D-74653 Kuenzelsau

They are situated NE of Heilbronn with Kuenzelsau being the bigger
place, i.e. probably the district's main place. You could write to the
Rathaus of Kuenzelsau for further information.
Hope that helps,

Replacement For AOL #general

Sandyhshor@...
 

We have been having a lot of difficulty using AOL and are in need of an
Inernet Service Provider.

Is there anyone out there in the Boca Raton, Florida area who has an
Internet Service Provider to recommend? I am especially concerned because
with AOL we have been unable to purchase books through the new JewishGen
Mall, something we really want to do.

Thanks in advance,

Re: Female name Dobrisch #general

Prof. G. L. Esterson <jerry@...>
 

Merav and Mario Schejtman of Israel wrote as follows:
"We have always thought that Dobrisch was a masculine name from
Dov. But now we found a female who's name is Dobrisch. The only
name we can think of as it's origin, is Devora. (This woman is
from the Ukraine.) Can anyone confirm or refute this?"
The Jewish name Dobrish is not linked to Dvora, but rather to the
Hebrew name Tova, for which it is a kinui. The name is a Slavic calque
from the names Guta and Bunya. For women who lived in Lithuania, a
number of similar names exist:

Dabra, Dobra, Doba, Dobrusya, Dabrush, Dabrusha, Davrish, Dabrushya,
Dobrus, Dobruska, Dobrushka, and Dovrush.

Similar names (albeit with different pronunciations) existed in Ukraine.

Dobra (familiar forms Dobrush, Dabrush) is a well known Jewish
female name in Slavic countries (dobry = good)

My wife's ggm had that name and it is still in use nowadays.

Despite the apparent similarity it has no connection with Devorah,
and it is not used as a man's name.
