Apology re MARKS, et al. #general

Gailcopela@...
 

Re my recent postings about searching MARKS, et al., I've been taken to
task (rightly so) for having been much too brief in the information I
provided. I shall repost at a later date with better information. Sorry for
any trouble I might have caused.

MODERATOR NOTE: Perhaps this is a good time to reiterate a few common-
sense rules for effective posts.
1. Combine related queries about a _single_ surname into a brief summary
instead of sending multiple posts.
2. Inquire about _different_ surnames in separate posts.
3. Provide additional identifying information such as places and dates, if
you know them. This is especially important when you are researching
common surnames.
4. _Always_ put surnames you are searching in ALL CAPS. Use normal upper-
and lower-case for everything else. Remember that all caps is
considered the equivalent of shouting. All lower-case may seem cute
and trendy to you, but it will distract >from the impact of your message
and you will be _less_ likely to find out what you want. Besides,
unless the moderator is in a particularly mellow mood, you may get the
message back to edit and repost.
5. You may repeat a query only after 3 months have passed.

Our name is Sacker, this is an Anglicisation. These are variant spellings
that we know about: Sacker, Tzecher, Scher, Zecher, Tzcher, Tzker.

We know that they came over >from either Lithuania or Belarus in the early
1900's.

One of my ancestors lived in Bykhov (27 miles south of Mogilev) during the

seen
the name "Slioma?" Is it a Jewish name? The son's nationality, according to
ancient documents was Hebrew, so I believe it is a Jewish name.
I have come across it in a census >from Rezekne, Latvia (now!) it was noted
as follows:
"Son SHLIOME, 2 years old, illiterate"

I, too, have been wondering what kind of a name that was, - also another
name, SHNEYER!

In the 1874 Census I came across the name SHNEYER (a male as he is noted to
have started military service!)

I am very interested in ANY information anyone can offer on this. Thank you.
As you can all guess: SO AM I!

Thank you in advance.

Mottel/Max and Anna/Hasha/Hannah #belarus

Michele Chavez <mchavez@...>
 

Hi Everyone,

Since we are on the subject of names, I hope you don't mind me asking a few
questions. :)

I found my g-grandfather Max Edelberg on a passenger list as Mottel
Edelberg. What is the relationship between the names Max and Mottel?

Also, my aunts have given me the names of two of my g-grandmother's
Greenberg sisters, but I'm not sure if they might be one and the same
person. One's name was Anna, the other Hannah, who my aunt says they called
Hasha. I haven't found any trace of Hannah/Hasha, but I have found evidence
of Anna, including her marriage license and SS# application. Anna married
Kalman Wexstein (Weckstein). Hannah is supposed to have married someone
named Winston. You can see my confusion since the names are so similar,
though my next thought is that perhaps Winston may have been Weinstein.
Further confusion is added because I can't find the supposed children of
Hannah, but have found some of the children of Anna. Does it seem likely
that Hannah and Anna may be the same person and where does the name Hasha
come from?

Thanks!

Correct spelling: "Transnistria", which literally means in Romanian: the
other side of the River Dniestr (over the river Dniestr).Area is located
east of Bessarabia and east of the Dniestr River."Raion" is a Russian word
for the region/territory.

Since your area of interest is limited to the names of shtetls in this
region, I would strongly recommend to obtain a book by Dr. Felicia
(Steigman) Carmelly: "SHATTERED! 50 Years of Silence, History and Voices
of the Tragedy in Romania and Transnistria".

Book reviews are available on this website:

Name: Rywek= Riviki #general

Dianemail <dianemail@...>
 

I have one old photo signed Rywek, and a second one which I believe is
addressed to (brother) Riviki. I know of no family member with such a
name. Could this name, (assuming they are both the same person) in some
way relate to the male names I know-- Yudel, Hessel, Yitzak, Gershon or
David?

Also, I have read much about Velvel=Wolf. Would a young man named Wolfson
ever sign a letter "V."?

Thanks for any help
