Yad Vashem #general

David Aron <davidaron@...>
 

I understand that Yad Vashem is currently carrying out a project to
computerise all the records that it holds of those who persished in the
Holocaust. This is being funded by the German banks in attempt to try to
sort out the position with accounts that were never released. There is
only a small amount of information on this project on the Yad Vashem web
page but it suggests that the project will be completed by mid-1999.

Does anyone have any more information on this project? Are there plans
for this information to be available on the internet? Is anyone >from the
JewishGen Board in contact with Yad Vashem to suggest that this project
may have significant value to Jewish genealogists?

Those books a great source of information, indeed.
Town Jaworow, where Dann family is from, has nothing in common with the
Kingdom of Poland or Russian Empire.
Galicia was a bit different planet in a Jewish world.

Legally she was known as "Julia". I have assumed that her Hebrew name

My mother's maiden name was "Dann" I am wondering what its etiology

I found a listing for the name "A Dann." After the name was a

Just to confirm your correct observation.
"Obuwie" in Polish means literally: shoes or boots. Retail shoe store is
known as "sklep obuwia" or "obuwniczy sklep".
But in records, listed alphabetically in Polish and French in pre W.W.II
business directories, shoe stores are listed under Polish "obuwie" (and
French "chaussures"). This is to distinguish >from shoemakers and shoe
repairs businesses listed under "szewc" (French "cordonniers").

As to the ethymology of "Dann". One can speculate that this name has
something in common with biblical Dan, but since majority of
Galicyaners' names sound mostly German and less Slavic and seldom
Hebraic/Aramaic, my educated guess is that this name is just a plain
German "dann" (next, afterwards), like in "dann und wann" (sometimes).
