I am looking for Tsili GOLDBERGER on behalf of my uncle Max Furmansky.

During the Holocaust, after escaping >from Auschwitz and joining the

was originally >from Tisalock (Hungary).
They both traveled a Red Army train via Cherniowitz to Budapest, where

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

How to Confirm Address for my Grandparents #general

Michael Rothenberg <mikeroth@...>
 

Hi,

I have an address that I would like to confirm as where my paternal
grandparents lived, in Brooklyn, >from the 1930's into the 1950's. Where
can I find a document that would show their name and address?

Would a phone book >from that period be available somewhere? If yes, how
could I (or someone) access it?

Any other suggestions on other ways to connect the name with the address?

(This was a house they owned in Coney Island).

Thanks,

Mike Rothenberg

London city directories #general

Subject: Question on London City Directories
>
I believe my grandfather was living in London England in 1901 and 1902.
I will be visiting London in the next few weeks and would like to look
him up in a City Directory. Hopefully this would be similar to a
Telephone Directory where names are listed alphabetically.
>
What types of directories are available, and where would I be able to
find them?

Roger Stein
Cupertino, California
There are some directories in an upstairs room at the Family Records
Center, and many more at the London Metropolitan Archives -- both in
Islington, just behind Finsbury Town Hall; nearest tubes (subway stations)
are Angel or Farringdon

No doubt there's loads more at the Public Record Office at Kew, a little
further out >from central London. All three places are accessible by tube/
bus.

When you get to London, call the FRC at 0181 392 5300, or the LMA at 0171
332 3820 for information and directions. (Sorry, I don't have the phone
number of the PRO handy.)
