==Beichte is German for confession, so Beichter would be a confessor or
confessant. I doubt that is its origin

==Peitsche is German for horsewhip. My Langenscheidt does not list Peitscher
but I recall it as a child when it was used for a coachman, possibly also a
drover.

==If Peitscher is the origin of the name, it would be a clue, too, that your
ancestor came to this name where P and B sounds were equivalent or near-
equivalent. That would suggest South Germany, Alsace or Switzerland, or an
area of Europe where Bet and Peh were near-equivalents in Yiddish. (someone
please fill me in on this localized pronounciation in Yiddish)

Re: GINSBURG of St. Petersburg #general

MBernet@...
 

GUENZBURG is a soundalike of Ginsburg. Could be the same family.

Baron Josef Guenzburg of St Petersburg, and his son Baron Horace, were bankers
and industrialists in St. Petersburg, philanthropists, scholars and leaders of
the Jewish community in Russia during much of the 19th century.

In case you wondred, the baronetcy came not >from the Czar but >from the Duke of
Hesse-Darmstadt.

Hungarian sites #general

Louis Schonfeld <lmagyar@...>
 

Within the last week there have been two general postings about Hungarian
genealogy - both referring to specific web sites. Since that time I have
seen no mention that Jewishgen hosts the Hungarian Jewish SIG which has over
320 subscribers and a website loaded with information and databases specific
to Hungarian Jewish genealogy. The URL is http://www.jewishgen.org/Hungary

Of course, it is nice to be informed of all related web sites and links
relating to our interests, but not to the neglect of our own organizational
"family".

Searching KAPLAN / DUCHAN / KOBERMAN / COHEN #general

BKaplan104 <bkaplan104@...>
 

My name is Beth KAPLAN, daughter of Irene & Abe KAPLAN. My father was born
Milford, MA, Sept. 1915; Mother born Brooklyn (I think...; certainly in
this country), July 10th, 1916. Her parents' names were Sam (Zalmon
Itzhak) & Bessie COHEN (Bochia DUCHAN), immigrants >from Lepler, Ukraine
and/or Shemilyena, Lithuania - both of which I assume to be small towns.

Ancestors' names on one side of the family or the other are: Baruch Hirsch
DUCHAN, Daniel KOBERMAN, Machla COHEN, Gitel KATZ. (I can't tell >from this
paper which side of the family or the other, because it got rather mixed up
in the transition >from Mac to PC.) My aunt's name is Cele (Cecilia) COHEN,
married to Harold PLOTKIN. I have another aunt, Rae COHEN, but have no idea
of her ancestors' names, nor where she was born. And, unfortunately, she's
had Alzheimer's for at least the last 10 years, I guess. My uncle, Morty
Morton) COHEN, lives in the Florida Panhandle, near Panama City.

Anyway, I'm wondering if any relatives left behind in eastern Europe died
in the Holocaust or maybe survived to emigrate to Israel. (I'm
pessimistically betting on the former.)

I've recently located a copy of a page >from a family bible that is written in

Reading Ketubah in Rockville Centre, NY #general

Reeva Kimble <rKimble@...>
 

My grandparents ketubah is in the basement in my cousin's house in
Rockville Centre, New York. It is about 100 years old and somewhat faded.

Is there a Jewishgen member who lives in or near Rockville Center who would
be willing try to read a few words written in Hebrew script on this
ketubah? I would like to know the names of my great grandparents and my
grandparents marriage date. My cousin says she will bring the ketubah to
someone who would volunteer to help us.

Please write to me directly: rkimble@oregon.uoregon.edu
