Trepecz #hungary

Aaron Rosenberg <a-j.rosenberg@...>
 

Trepecz is a village in eastern Slovakia about halfway between Stropkov and
Vranov. Does anyone know anything about it? Apparently the 1869 Census
exists for it. Where were the vital records registered, Sropkov? Vranov?

ETYMOLOGY of DANN #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Subject: What is the etiology of the surname "Dann"
From: William Sher <>
My mother's maiden name was "Dann" I am wondering what its etiology...
I assume you mistyped -- you obviously meant to ask about its ETYMOLOGY.
The biblical Dan appears in Genesis as one of the sons of Jacob and thus
the ancestor of one of the tribes of Israel. I know one family with the
surname Dan (living in Israel, where this may be quite a common surname
nowadays).

But perhaps your DANN was an abbreviation of a longer name based on the
common biblical name Daniel. (For instance, DANIELOVICH was the birth name
of Kirk Douglas!). There's also a surname DONIN or DANIN, which could
theoretically lose its "I" somewhere along the line, so it may be worth
checking these out too.

BEVIS MARKS #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Jeff Malka asked:

There are printed lists of the records of the Marks-Bevis Spanish and
Portuguese Synagogue in London records. Are the actual documents
(ketubbot) referred to available as well and if so where? How can one get
a copy of records listed in the printed book listing. Is this still a
functioning synagogue?
First, you might want to note that this VERY famous synagogue is NOT called
Marks-Bevis, but BEVIS MARKS. Actually, that's only its nickname -- being
simply its street address! Officially, today, it's the "Spanish and
Portuguese Jews Congregation" -- but everyone refers to it as Bevis
Marks.
Yes, it is still partially functioning, holding services at certain times,
but more importantly it is a national monument supported by government
funds and open to tourists at specified times.

As for your questions, you could write to the archivist, a very helpful
lady who will certainly know the answers:

Spanish & Portuguese Jews' Congregation
