Russian forms #belarus

Carlton Brooks <carltonb@...>
 

I have had great success using ADOBE ACROBAT on forms. The form is
scanned and converted to a (.PDF) format. It then can be sent as a file
and read and printed through the ADOBE ACROBAT READER which is available
for free.

MODERATOR NOTE: Carlton, we may ask you to convert a letter to PDF if
someone is able to create it in Russian and Lithuanian. Sound like you
have the software and hardware to do this. Thanks.


Re: Hebrew writing on tombstones #general

Shalom Mandelbaum <shalom_m@...>
 

Traditionally, the parantage and date of death is mentioned. In addition
you may find that the character or specific characteristics of the
person are praised.
In some communities poems are written to prais the memory of the
deceased.
At times the names of family members, who have no place of burial
(holocaust, lost at sea etc..), are metoined on the tombstone too.

so, generally speaking
what is written on the tombstones in Hebrew? Is it a mere
repitition of the english (names and dates), a prayer, or
possibly something that may help me with genealogical research?

My grandfather belonged to this landsmanshaftn many years ago. I know they
far, I know where their burial plots are and that they were formed in 1915.
If anyone knows more about the organization, or the town, I would be
curious in learning about it. Thanks once again.

I found a few SSDI names who were born in the 1880s-1910s. Can this track
them back to an address or district at birth, in order to check a census

And how?
For the women, is the surname on the SSDI their maiden name, or surname at
the time of death?
I have requested SSDI information (and received it) for my grandmother, who
never worked. The surname was her married name (at the time she filed the
application).
What I received in the mail was a copy of her application for social
security benefits. It is my understanding that if I person has worked,
there would be more information.

The form, >from 1959, listed:
full name, including a middle name I did not know of
Address at time of application
Birth date and city, county, state of birth
Full name of father and mother ( mother by maiden name)

Re: Origin of HECHT name #general

Shalom Mandelbaum <shalom_m@...>
 

Hecht is German and Yiddish for pike.
In most of Europe the pike was the fish most commonly used to make "gefillte
fish".
The carp was a rich mans food, since the ponds where it was found were usually in
private hands.

What is the origin of the popular Jewish family name, HECHT?

I have recently located possible relatives in Rosario, Argentina. I have
read recent discussions on this list of the sensitivities of some people

Would some helpful Argentinean JewishGenner be willing to make a few phone
calls on my behalf to determine the willingness of these people to
communicate with me about our ancestry.

Please respond privately.
