In 1901, was there any town in Lithuania which sounds like KUCHINEV ? I
only found KICHINEV, in Moldavia.

There is a town in Lithuania named Kuc'iu'nai at about 5405/2331. The "c"
is accented and has the sound of "ch".

hertz ?=? hersch #general

Krefman, Stephen <krefman@...>
 

Was Hersch (or Herschel) and Hertz (or Hertzel) basically the same
name?

I have found Hersch defined as deer, while Herz is defined as heart.
Yet I have seen both names associated with:

(1) the Herbrew name for deer: Zvi, Tsvi or Tsui,
(2) the biblical name Naphthali
(3) and the American and British names Harris, Harry or Harold,

They appear both within my family and in the literature as if they
were the same name.

Nonetheless, I have had family members insist that an ancestor (born
in the late 1800's) named Hertzel couldn't possibly have been named
after his great grandfather named Herschel (born in the early 1800's)
because "they're not the same name and in Europe in those days they
always used the same name, rather than a similar name."

Need help reading Hebrew names #general

From: Barbara Mannlein
Chicago, IL
matthewm@... (no attachments) and mbmannlein@....

Found the following on an old picture. My grandparents sent the picture
from Israel in 1948.
The Hebrew letters appear to be Alef - Yud - Shin -Bet or Kuf - Vuv.

Also, there seems to be the word Tabon in western script as well.

Does any Genner have any idea what they say/mean? Are these personal or
place names?

Thanks

Barbara

Re: What is POSNANTECK? #general

JJG613 <jjg613@...>
 

What sort
of name is POSNANTECK? Is it a first name, or a last name? Where does it
come from?
According to Bieder, the surname POZNANTEK appeared in the town of Konskie
and references the ornamental name of POZMENTYR -- which refers to a "lace
maker."

Similarly, BIRENZWEIG (or BIRNCWAJG) was also apparant in the town of Konskie.

I'm glad I looked this up because my gut was going to say that POSNANTECK
had something to do with the town of Poznan.

Good luck,

Re: A Genealogical Question #general

JJG613 <jjg613@...>
 

Consider a man who married and had two daughters and a son. The
wife and both daughters were murdered during a Pogrom. The son
survived.

The man marries again and has another son. The relationship between
the two sons would be that of half brothers. What would be the
relationship between the second son and the murdered daughters?
Since they died prior to the birth of the second son, would they
also be half sisters to the second son? What would the murdered
first wife of the father be to the second son? Would she be a
step-mother even if she perished before the birth of the second son?

The second son WOULD HAVE been a half-brother to the two murded daughters
from his father's first marriage. Death nor divorce would change this.
The first wife, however, would have been NOTHING to him. Had she not
died, he may never have married again and had this second son. Even if he
did, whether legitimately after a divorce, or illegitimately, there still
would be NO relation, blood or legal, between the first wife and the second
son.

And there you have it :)
