minutes of meetings 1953 until the organization dissolved in
1987. I would be glad to look up names for anyone researching

Minnie Sacks, New York, 1905 #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

from a distant relative, I have inhiereted a large box of turn-of the century
pictures. One photo is of a young woman, I would guess to be about 16 to 20
years of age, and her name is Minnie Sacks. (Spelling of the surname is a
little difficult to see.)
I believe the picture was taken about 1905 in New York City.

If anyone believes Minnie Sacks is a relative, I would be happy to send them a
copy of the picture. By the way, this relative had the remarkable forsight to
put the names of the people in the photo on the back. Fellow genealogists,
are you listening????????????????

I have inheireted a large box of turn-of- the century pictures >from a distant
relative. Among the ones that may fit into someone else's family is a picture
of Freida RABINOWITZ, who resided in Staten Island about 1905. I am guessing
that she would be in her 50''s or 60's >from the picture.

If anyone thinks that Frieda is a relative, I will send you a copy of the
picture. Oh, and by the way, this relative had the forsight to mark the name
of the person on 90% of the pictures. Fellow genealogists, are you
listening????????????

Dear JewishGenners,
Does anyone know if Sgeinze or something similar is a Polish or
Yiddish given name for a woman? I am staring at a hand written death
certificate and the name looks like Sgeinze.
Sounds like it might be "Sprinze", which at least in some cases
derives >from the Spanish "Esperanza". However, I've seen enough
cases where this name was used in families that had no evident
connection with Spain that I would be hesitant to conclude that
the family fled the Inquisition.

Re: Alma Mater Research #general

Paul Silverstone <paulh@...>
 

What you could do is look up class books which often have background
information about the students - particularly for freshman and senior
years. Also some college classes produce books for reunions which
tell what everyone is doing and their current addresses and families.

ancestors' college alma maters for information.

Do not put much stock in that form of research. My alma mater will not
release names and addresses unless it first takes the name and
information of the person or organization wishing the contact. It then
contacts the graduate and lets him or her decide whether to make the
contact.

Re: "Suni" As a Female First Name #general

Moshe Davis <davis@...>
 

Perhaps the letter n in "Suni" is really a letter r. That would make
it "Suri", a derivative of "Sarah".

Mima Shuta GORINJ ? , NYC, 1940'S to 1950'S #general

As a long shot, my grandmother's sister Mima Shuta GORINJ, >from Kovel,
Ukraine marital status unknown but probably married. She was in her
80's in late 40's or early 50's. She was diabetic and had a leg
amputated. Possibly she was related to a prominent family in the dry
cleaning business. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

The surname DIAMOND #general

Rica Goldberg
 

As far as I know, my maternal grandfather Nosson Eliazer DIAMOND and his two
brothers Joseph and Harris came to England in the 1880's to 1890's from
Lithuania (Kovno I think) on their own as teenagers, to avoid being taken into
the army for a long period as was the custom of the authorities for Jews in
those days.

My question is: what might have been their surname in Lithuania and is there
a probably shtetl >from which they might have come?
