Re: Need help identifying a Jewish Cookbook! #general

The book is called ">from Noodles to Strudels," and it was published by the
Wisconsin chapter of Hadassah. I grew up on it in Milwaukee, and believe
me, the recipe for noodle kugel is terrific.
Molly Gordy

It appears to have been compiled by women belonging to some
organization or synagogue, for fundraising purposes, with the recipes
having been contributed by these women.

Research Materials Wanted For 1999 Conference in NYC #general

Lew Norman <lewnorman@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society, Inc., will host the 19th Annual Conference on
Jewish Genealogy in New York City, August 8 - 13, 1999. A highlight of the
Conference will be the Resource Room located at the Conference hotel. In
addition to providing the Conference attendees with an "on-site" basic research
library, the Resource Room will showcase those special research projects which
have been completed by the various Jewish Genealogical Societies, and their
members, throughout the world. The Resource Room Committee is currently
requesting contributions of genealogical materials which would be useful and
informative to the Conference attendees, especially materials which are unique
or unusual. In particular, the Committee is requesting printed copies of
indexes, databases, unpublished manuscripts and private collections, in
addition to commercially published books and maps. Many Jewish genealogists
have compiled information >from and about local cemeteries, synagogues, Jewish
newspapers, public records and other sources, to use as research aids.
Although some of these resources have made their way into various publications
or databases on the Internet, many have not been published, making the Resource
Room at the 1999 Conference the perfect place for their public debut.

All materials loaned to the Resource Room must be in appropriate printed form
and will be returned immediately after the Conference has ended. If you are
interested in contributing materials to the Resource Room, please send a list
identifying and describing those materials to the Resource Room Committee c/o
the Jewish Genealogical Society, Inc., 600 West End Avenue, Suite 10F, New
York, NY, 10024, or by email at "lewnorman@aol.com." The Resource Room
Committee will contact all potential contributors regarding the necessary
arrangements to obtain the materials prior to the Conference and to return them
afterwards. Please be assured that appropriate security measures will be taken
to protect all loaned materials and the Conference will accept responsibility
for their safekeeping. Any further inquiries should be addressed to the
Resource Room Committee at the above postal or email address.

DECOSTA, old Sephartic Family in Charleston, South Carolina #general

GMZ262 <CZSOLNAY@...>
 

I was reading the recent U.S. National Book Award Winner, "Slaves in the
Family" By Edward Ball in which he traces the descendants of slaves on the
plantations owned by his family in the 1700s. One descendant mentioned a
black family owned funeral home in Charleston, South Carolina in the 1900s
run by a black family named DECOSTA. This person is quoted as saying that
these DECOSTAs were descended >from a Sephardic Jewish man who intermarried
with an early African American in the area.

For people studying the DECOSTAs, this may be a place to consider more
research.

Sincerely,

Double Names #general

I need some help discovering why my male ancestors seem to have double names
that are not patronymics! Several seem to have hyphenated names and a
different patronymic. Examples are:
...
Yankel-Yos Berkov

Double names are similar to first and middle names that we are
familiar with today. In my ancestry, we've got Josef Jojna,
Abraham Jakob, Sumer Josef, Shmuel Laibish, Boruch Yehuda, etc.
It was (and is) fairly common. The big difference that I've discovered
in working with records >from the Kingdom of Poland is that
often the order of names in the name pair is not consistent.
For example, Sumer Josef is sometimes Josef Sumer, or just one
of those names might appear in certain documents, but all refer
to the same person.

Also, be sure to realize that the patronymic names in your
list above have a suffix attached to them. Yankel-Yos' father
is not Berkov, but Berek. The suffix denotes "family of".
