Hi,

My wife's father, Benjamin BIENN emigrated to the US ca. 1914 with his
sister, Anna BIENN.
He settled in South Louisiana and spent some time in New Orleans or
Algiers. They came
from a town that my wife's aunt called HODUSKY, Poland. A family tree
consisting of names
and family relations without dates denotes that my wife's ggf's name was
David GILINSKY
and that they resided in Palushe, Russia. Any assistance in identifying
the towns or the family
will be deeply appreciated.

Re: Gravestone Translation Requested by Paul Fisher of Atlanta , 20 Aug, 1998 #general

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

The words are: "Avinu HaYakar Dov Ber" Which means: "Our Dear Father
Dov Ber".
Paul mistook the letter vet/bet (the second letter in the Hebrew alphabet)
for vav, the sixth letter, which could not have been on the gravestone,
since daled-vav and vav-resh do not spell any Hebrew words. It is
therefore: daled-vet, bet-resh=3D Dov Ber.

In Hebrew a Dov is literally a Bear--the animal. In Yiddish a bear is Ber. In Ashkenazi name-giving tradition, the combination of Dov Ber is
very common, almost always together. In English the equivalents are Berl,
Bernard, Barney, Barnett, etc.

Re: Are you researching surnames? #general

The Jewish Genealogy Family Finder (JGFF) should be the first place for
all to start when searching for a surname. If the name you are looking
for is not on the JGFF, PUT IT THERE! That way, if someone who is not
yet on the Jewishgen mailing list today comes looking for it next month,
or next year, they can get in touch with you. The JGFF can be found on
the Jewishgen homepage at <www.jewishgen.org>. The database archive
should be the second place you look for your surnames.

Dear Jewishgenners,

This is my first query. I have been reading and learning a lot >from your
discussion group.

Can someone help me regarding the names on my grandfather's tombstone?

The letters are aleph--beit--yud--nun--vav, hey--yud--kuf--rash,
daled--vov, vav--rash--hieroglyph.

His Yiddish name was Berl Grabina. I believe daled--vov = Dov, Hebrew
for Berl.

What names do these letters spell in Hebrew and what would be their
Yiddish equivalents?

Thank you.

living with her brother and sister-in-law.The latter, unhappy about
living situation, arranged marriage to Gerschon. Rosja came to USA in
1903 (don't know about Gerschon); ticket agency warned about"red-eye"
and"lice" as entry deniers. Rosja and two daughters held over one day
because son Samuel did not come to pick them up. All grandchildren
afraid of Rosja...very stern woman. Name GRUNFELD became, variously,
Greenfeld and Greenfield. Couple of Yiskor tracts not helpful with

Sarah Rivka PALEY, daughter of Moshe PALEY, having married Louis (Eliezer Ze'ev)
TOUGER and borne him five children, died in Brooklyn in July of 1912 at the age
of 32. Her death certificate gave "dementia paralytica" as the cause of death
and listed acute nephritis as a secondary cause. Her youngest child, Mary, died
several months later at the Hebrew Infant Home in the Bronx at the age of "1
year 1 month 1 day". Her oldest child, Morris, was my father. (My grandfather
came >from the Minsk gobernya in what is now Belarus. . . very probably >from
Borisov or Lepel; it is likely that Sarah Rivka came >from the same place or
nearby. They arrived in the US in 1904. They are both buried in plots
belonging to the Independent Lepler Benevolent Assn.) I am wondering if there
is any recollection in anyone's family of this Sarah Rivka, or of anything like
the events I've described.
Please note: to my knowledge there has been no communication between the
Tougers and other Paleys since 1912, so I know of no Paley connections other
than those I mention above.
Thank you for your kind attention.
