Re: The name Bashe or Basha #general

Bud484BG@...
 

I deleted the original posting on this subject.
But couldn't resist a response. I am named for a woman cousin named
Bashe or Basha. And I know the name to be that of other women as well.
Did not know that it could be a man's name as well. The things one learns
through this group!

Naming after deceased father #general

JOHN & DEE DEE ROSS <jnddross@...>
 

I, too, have found--after much confusion--that my g g grandfather was
named after his father who died in New Orleans in the second year of the
marriage leaving a pregnant wife. When the son was born, he was given
his father's name, Abraham. Because there were two Abrahams, it took me
a long time to figure out what happened. I could not relate the date of
his coming to the United States with the age at death of the Abraham I
was checking out in California, although they were both named Abraham
Gradwohl. Finally, a light went on in my head, and I tried to go down
another path to see if there were two people, and, if so, how they were
related. Or, was it just a coincidence that there were two people of
the same name. Abraham I, as I call him died in New Orleans, and
Abraham II showed up in the records in California. After several years
of searching, and much help >from kind Jewishgenners, my mystery got
solved. The widow, Caroline Levy Gradwohl, married a ? Jacobs, and they
came out to CA around 1850 to be with relatives of Abraham I. This all
drove me crazy for a long time, until I finally got it figured out!

The given name Zunie #general

m.steinberg <m.steinberg@...>
 

I believe I have an ancestor >from Galicia, Tarnopol district with the given
name Zunie (pronounced, I think Zhunya).

If anyone can tell me if they have heard of this first name, please let me
know. Is it more of a Yiddish name than a Hebrew name? Male or Female?

Many thanks,

Re: The name Bashe or Basha #general

Basha is, I believe, a Yiddish name. It is a female name and is considered
to be a derivative of the Hebrew name Basya or Batya.

1900's.

In my experience I have found Bashe to be a women's name, although
I have come across a Bushy or Bushinkel as a nickname for a youngest
child who was a boy.
Yes, I had a great Aunt who was born Bashe Bartnovski in Zabludow Poland.
I also had a great uncle Birshe Bartnovski who was the last Jewish
blacksmith in Zabludow. Would anyone know if these could be the same basic
name just one feminine and one masculine? Also any idea what this name
means?

Thanks,

Re: INS notations on Ships Passenger List #general

buffmufin
 

The notations entered on the ships passenger pages under the occupation
column are related to obtaining naturalization papers. What do the
numbers mean ?
for example 2-769948-8-7-40
and 2-915214
from my own experience in researching these kinds of numbers in my own
family, this is what I learned:

The 2 refers to the fact that the papers were submitted in New York.
Other locations have other prefixes (e.g. 8 is Detroit). The second set
of numbers (long series) is the document number. It may be a declaration,
petition, etc. The 3rd number was the date of the document.

Considering the date, and >from personal experience in my own family, most
likely your relative filed a declaration of intent prior to having to
register under the Alien Registration Act. That is what some of my
relatives did, at about the same time, and thereafter became citizens.

Hope this helps.

Re: Bielcza (jri-pl digest: November 05, 2000) #poland

NFatouros@...
 

In her message of November 5,00 concerning the town of Bielcza Ellen
Sattler-Harpin asked whether is is unusual for only two or three families to
live "in a village like this."

It may have been the case that there weren't many non-Jewish families in that
village either; Bielcza was just a small village. (I couldn't find an entry
for it in any of my Gazetteers.) Or, perhaps, those few Jewish families
supplied the needs of the rest of the population,such as for tailoring and
tinsmithing, and in particular, the need for liquor. A tavern was also a
place of respite for the area's farmers and for intinerant traders and
peddlars.

If those few Jewish families of a little village were observant, they would
go to a larger village or nearby town to fulfill their religious oblgations
for circumcision, marriages, cheder attendance, etc., and the great holy days
and, maybe, more regularly and frequently, for Sabbath services.

That at the time of the Shoah there were only two or three Jewish families in
Bielcza may indicate merely that other Jewish families who may have lived
there had died out by then, or had emigrated.
