Translation broken Del Valle Tombstone,anno 1774 #general

Rene <106141.360@...>
 

Dear readers,

I have posted this translation request before and put a photo on my
webpage.

Many advised me to take another picture because the result on my web page
is very poor.

His tombstone may be partly viewed on my homepage, see :
http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/VanWijngaarden/jewishge.htm

Extra information : David Salom del Valle was married to Sara de Abraham
de Casseres (Caceres).
Yesterday I went back to the old cemetery in Rotterdam and I tried to copy
the letters as carefully as possible.

The letters are >from right lo left and written in an arc like form. The
stone is partly broken and pieces are missing. I am not able to space the
words as all letters are written in one line it seems to me . This will
make it he more difficult

What I have
1. Gimel 11. waw 21. Qoph
2. Zayin 12.waw
3. Final Mem 13. beth
4. Aleph 14. ayin
5. Beth 15. yodh
6. Taw 16. res
7. Yodh 17. daleth
8. Waw 18. waw
9. Waw again 19. space
10. Qooph 20. kaph

The stone has deteriorated that much that I cannot make more of it .
I have difficulties with distinguishing between letters like waw.res,
final nun,final kaph
Sorry for my clumsyness in this.

RENDELSTEIN Sisters FOUND! #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

Just wanted to tell those of you who have offered advice and guidance as
to how to locate my father's first cousins who used to live in the
Bronx --- I found them! Ironically, not using any of the suggestions
any of you offered to me.

Checking on an "informant" named on a 1960 burial record >from the
cemetery, I found the husband of Frances. Fortunately, he has an
"unusual" first name and a common surname. Put the two together, and
using Switchboard.com, I lucked out! Fortunately, he has a listed phone
number.

I started to write a letter, asking if he was related to the family, and
I stopped midway through. I picked up the phone and called long
distance. I just had to know, FAST! The man who answered the phone was
very silent when I told him who I was and what I was looking for. Then
he said, "Yes, I'm married to Frances." Well, my heart started pounding
fast, and I broke out into goose bumps. Fortunately, he's a really nice
guy, and he didn't get all uptight. Within two minutes, we were
swapping bits and pieces of information about both families. It was
wonderful!

Even better, was the feelings I had when I phoned my father, and told
him that I found his two female first cousins. Daddy's been most
anxious to find "the girls." I felt like I was handing him handsful of
diamonds and gold. I suspect that by this evening, Daddy and Frances
will be on the phone with one another, trying to fill in more than 50
years of family history.

A rabbi once told me that doing genealogy is a "mitzvah" (a very good
thing). I didn't really understand all that he meant by that when he
said it. NOW I know just want it all entails. It IS a wonderful
feeling. I hope that all of you who are searching for living relatives
(as well as dead) will share in the elation I have felt.

Thank you, all of you, who have been offering help and guidance in this
regard. I really do appreciate it.

What Genealogy is All About! #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

Hi All:

Thanks for the many posts of congratulations upon my wonderful "find"
this morning. One of the posts I received reminded me to remind ALL of
you who subscribe to the online groups. Searching for family includes
not only looking for our "roots" but also looking for our
contemporaries. There is so much more to gain by finding our LIVING
relatives. Yes, we all want a sense of our family history (who came
before us to help to make us who we are today), but it is more of a
mitzvah (blessing, good thing) to bring long lost family back together.
Too often we forget what it was that drove family apart, and only
remember that the divisions exist. In the case of my evergrowing
family, we are ALL long past the problems of our progenitors. Their
problems, their anger, their hurt, has all died with them. We are
guilty of none of that stuff. We are here, we are now, and we should
remember that we all spring >from the same root stock.

Find your living family and rejoice in them, as much -- more, than what
you know of those long gone.

Thank you for this forum which is so helpful, supportive, and constantly
"giving." All of you who are serious about your research know, deep in
your hearts, that what I'm saying is true. Our past is but a memory,
our future is but a hope. TODAY is our reality. Use it to your best
advantage.

Re: Jane #general

WHirsch869 <whirsch869@...>
 

Seems we have beat this thing to death. A Hebrew name can be anything, and
need not be related in any way to the English (or whatever) name.

FWIW, I had a great aunt who's name was Jane (in Bavaria). When I found her
gravestone, it turned out that her real name was Marijane (a variant of
Marianne) and her Hebrew name was Miriam.

Re: A shtetl called Grundy?? #general

armata@...
 

Does anyone know of a town which might have been
pronounced like "Grundy"?
[That is the way is written on the Naturalization papers
1905 - 1915] They renounce the Czar although present
day members of this family always believed the family came
from Poland. That narrows the geography but there are still
many possibilites to those unfamiliar with the pronounciation.
Lois Sernoff [Phila., PA, US] <JGLois@aol.com>

The "un" in "Grundy" might represent the Polish nasal "a" vowel. Grady
(with a hook under the "a", showing it's nasal), is pronounced in literary
Polish close to "Grondy", and in dialects can be pronounced "Grundy".

There are several Grady in former Russian Poland: near Plock, near
Ostrow Mazowiecki, near Suwalki, and near Lublin, there may be others too.
