Re: Children Use Mother's Maiden Name #general

Marla Waltman Daschko <waltman@...>
 

Paul Silverstone asked if others had found examples of men or children
taking a mother's maiden name upon emigration to North America. I have a
similar situation in my family when my grandfather emigrated to Canada
from Ukraine in 1927. He changed his name so he would be accepted as an
immigrant.

My paternal grandfather's name in Ukraine was Yehuda Leib ben Tzion ha
cohain SPECTOR. In order to be accepted as an immigrant in 1927, my
grandfather needed to be sponsored by a family member. He didn't have
family in Canada but he was hoping to come to Toronto to marry my
grandmother whom he had known in his home shtetl Kryzhopol. The mother
(Masha VELTMAN KRAFT) of my grandmother sponsored him as an immigrant by
pretending that Leib was her youngest brother. So Leib took her maiden
name which was VELTMAN, somehow got a passport and immigration paper in
this new name (Lev VELTMAN), and was able to travel to and enter Canada.

At some point after they married my grandparents changed their surname
again to WALTMAN. In fact, I didn't know this story until I was in my
twenties - until that time I had always looked for WALTMAN/VELTMAN
relatives only, not realising that SPECTOR was also my name. If my
grandmother hadn't told me this story before she died I would never have
known why the name was changed. The point, I guess, is that the reasons
for name changes are many and varied.

Re: Masche - what type of name? #general

Marla Waltman Daschko <waltman@...>
 

On 28 November, Allan Jordan asked about the name Masche and on Nov.
29th Len Zonder replied that:
"The spelling differs but is the same as Masha, my mother's name. Her
English name was Martha, but Masha > would be equally valid for Marsha,
Mary, Marie, etc."

I'd like to build on his reply by stating that my Hebrew (or is it
Yiddish?) name is Masche and I was named after my paternal
great-grandmother who was known variously as Musha / Mascia / Masha /
Masze or Massia in Ukraine and occasionally as Marcie in Canada. I have
a second cousin who was named after her called Marcie and I was named...

The International Commission on Holocaust-era Insurance Claims
(http://www.icheic.org) publishes policy information on its website to
help Holocaust survivors find out if Europe's insurers still owe them
money. There are currently 19,000 policies on its website uncovered in
insurers' files and Austrian archives. Expect to see another 20,000
recently found in German archives to be posted soon.
I have no additional information on this site.

REBECCHI: what dou you think about this surname? #general

dalia rossi <dubro@...>
 

Dear Genners,
My grand,grandfather called Beniamino Rebecchi and he lived in
little town in Italy,he was a tailor. I search the origin about
this surname and some people tell me that probably
descend to the byblical name rebecca (I hope this!!!!!)
I found that many people in East Europe called like a surname:
Rybiecki,rybicki,rebech,rebecca,rebecki........
and many sthetel are Rabeki,rebbeke,rebeci ecc,ecc.
In italian language the K=ch.
now I found in old book of byblical hebrew that in old hebrew
Rebach,reibach,rebech means lightening and in middle hebrew means
earnings,like in yiddish reibach,rebbach ecc,ecc means
earnings. In Poland rybicki is relative to Ryba that means fish,
ryback is a fishman.
Dear friend What do you think about the surname REBECCHI?????

Thank you !!!!!!

Dear David;
I am not sure if I wrote you earlier or not, but just in case. I am writing
in regards to your Donn name. My maternal Ggrandmother's maiden name was
either Dunn or Donn. (It is hard to tell by the birth certificate.) Although
from Riga, Latvia, I think they were originally >from Lithuania.
Eva (Chaya)was born 1875. Her father was Michael, I beleive >from Lithuania.
I know this is not much information, but does this sound at all familiar?
