Unfamiliar Yiddish first names #general

Steven Jacobs <noahben99@...>
 

I recently received photographs of the tombstones of
my great grandmother and great aunt. The names in
Hebrew are unfamiliar to me, since they Americanized
their names upon coming to New York. The family was
from Romania and Hungary.
My great grandmother's name was Bertha, but her
tombstone reads (>from right to left):
bet-yod-lamed-hay (space) chet-yod-hay

My great aunt's name was Sylvia, her but her tombstone
reads (>from right to left):
hay-bet-tet-vav-lamed-hay (space)zayin-lamed-daled-hay

How would you pronounce these names in English?

Thanks for your help.

HESS in Berlin and Silesia #general

CLSchwarzer
 

Dear Volker (and anyone in the JewishGen list)

I am searching for HESS in Silesia and Berlin, especially for Emil HESS,
surgical instrument maker. I guess he came >from Berlin to Breslau about
1890-1895 and possibly returned to Berlin in 1911/1912. In Berlin there
seems to be a long line of jewish HESS, what can be seen >from the
adressbooks (I have copied all HESS entries.

Which area is interesting for you?

I am participating in a Silesian mailing list and at the time not at
JewishGen, so please answer me directly.

Best whishes

Location Of Burial Plot #general

Stan Cohen <natsnehoc@...>
 

I realize that this may not directly relate to genealogy, however I have
been asked the questions and I dont have the answers. So since I have
gleaned enormous amounts of Jewish information and knowledge >from this
site, perhaps someone will be kind enough to enlighten me, relative to the
following:

1. According to the established Rules of Halacha, where is the first grave
site located, when a new Row in a Cemetery is started, front, middle or
back, or ?

2. Also, I have been told that, where a husband and wife are buried, side
by side, the wife must not have a Male (stranger)on her other side. Is
this so?

Advanced thanks and appreciation for any response,

Stan Cohen
(being a Cohen you would think that I would know the answers, alas, tis not
the case, yet anyway!!!)

I am looking for any members of the Rich, Michelson, Forman, Holtz or
Greenstein families originally >from Haverhill, Massachusetts. These
families were probably related and were in the Haverhill area in the early
1900's. All of the families are said to have been related to either the
Brief and Burack families of Boston and Volyn, Ukraine or to the Greenberg
family of Haverhill.
Please contact me with any information. Thanks

Database template for genealogy #general

Louis Schonfeld <Lmagyar@...>
 

Is there one or more among you who will share a database template
that can provide a genealogy assist for tracking and sorting one's family
name?

In my case, I have individual data (first names,DOB, birth locations and
other items (fields) of information) for nearly two thousand individuals
from the former Austro-Hungarian Empire and the U.S. with the name
Schonfeld (including variant spellings). Each individual would constitute
one record within the database (imagine one index card among many in a
file box). If someone has developed such a database (preferably in
Microsoft Access format)I would like to hear >from you. I am not looking
for a genealogy program (I already use FTMaker v 8.0). I understand that
many genealogy programs accept names of non-related individuals, however,
this feature is not sufficiently flexible for many people's needs(at
least, not for me).

I view the database concept more as a research tool that will help me
identify, sort and analyze all the names I have accumulated. Your help
would be appreciated. Respond privately.

Re: The name Bashe or Basha #general

Mike Glazer <glazer@...>
 

Actually it could also be the Polish diminutive name for Barbara,
in which case it is written Basia.

No, it's actually a woman's name. It's a transliteration of the Hebrew
name Bas-yah, meaning "daughter of God" (and pronounced Batya in modern
or sephardi Hebrew).
