Foreign marriage certificate #general

Ryan Luft <rluft@...>
 

I just recently received a copy of a relative's marriage certificate. It
indicates that he and his wife were married in a D-P Camp, but it
indicates that this was a RE-marriage. Their first marriage had been
conducted a few years before in Poland.

Does anyone know why this would be so? Why two marriages? Does it
indicate that the first was not legal?

Thank you,
Ryan Luft

Parents of Emmanuel MIRANDA, 17th Cent. #general

Jim Miranda <jmiranda7@...>
 

Isaac Miranda was the first Jew to set foot in Pennsylvania. He was
born the son of Emmanuel Nunes Miranda in France, 1662 and died Nov. 17,
1732 in Lancaster, PA. Isaac left London,and he arrived in Philadelphia
about Feb. 1712. Isaac was a close friend of James Logan who was placed
in charge of the PA colony by William Penn when he returned to England.
Isaac was the first Jew to hold political office in PA. In 1727 he was
an Agent to receive and collect the Perquisites & Rights of Admiralty
and July 19, 1727 he was named deputy judge of the Court of the Province
of PA. He is my great...great grandfather, and a descendant of the
Tribe of Judah. I have my family tree >from Emmanuel down to the
present. Emmanuel was a Sephardi Jew, coming >from "conceyu de Miranda
(Austuries) or Council in Austuries. There is a village called Miranda
located 150 kilometers east of Oviedo. The Spanish Jews were expelled
in 1492 by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. Can anyone help me locate
any Spanish Jews living in France, Spain, or Israel who may have been
related to Emmanuel? Jim Miranda

How to Reply to, or File, a JewishGen Digest Posting #general

marjorie.rosenfeld <marjorie.rosenfeld@...>
 

How to reply to a message that appears in JewishGen is easy: You just
click on the address (provided, of course, that it appears in blue with
a line under it, as it does in my Digest messages). What will then
come up will be a message form >from you with the address of the
recipient already filled in. Of course, you'll have to remember what
was in the message you're replying to, since you'll no longer be able
to see that. I sometimes save messages to my Desktop so that I can
easily copy and paste the text, or some of it, into my response.

Which brings us to the question of how to save messages to the DeskTop
(or to any other folder where you'd like to put them). Since I have a
program called Internet Mail (which is part of Windows 95), what I do
is select (i.e., highlight) the text I want to copy >from the Digest
with my mouse. I then go to Edit and select Copy. I then click on the
little box containing the minus sign at the upper right corner of my
screen to minimize the Digest message and next click on the same box to
minimize Internet Mail and get back to my DeskTop. Then I bring up my
word processing program (which in my case means clicking on Start, then
Programs, Accessories, and WordPad). Once I have my word processing
program window on my screen, I click on Edit and then Paste. Like
magic, the text you want will appear. If you've highlighted too much
of it, you can just re-highlight the unwanted part and push your delete
key to get rid of it. Then you can save the remaining text to your
DeskTop, your JewishGen folder, or any other folder you want to put it
in. Or you can select it (either with your mouse or by going to Edit
and Select All) and then copy it (by choosing Copy under Edit) in order
to paste it into an e-mail reply you're constructing.

Since at one time I was mightily confused myself about the same
question you're asking, I copied a couple of responses >from the Digest
and filed them in my JewishGen useful information folder. I offer them
also, copied and pasted below, in case they're clearer or apply better
to your situation than what I've suggested above.

Jaime=Chaim? #latinamerica

Myron Chijner <mchijner@...>
 

Hi,
Would someone coming >from eastern europe to South America change
their name >from Chaim to Jaime. I am assuming that the pronunciation
would be the same because of the "j"="h" sound in spanish and
portuguese. I am not making a reference to the meaning of the names,
but only to the pronunciation. I would be interested if others have
seen this change.

Thanks,
