Searching: Max Bartfeld, Leipzig (1901) #general

martin b mannlein <matthewm@...>
 

Looking for information on a Max Bartfeld, DOB 4 18-1901, born in
Leipzig.

He was a superb athlete, a member of the Bar Kochba sports organization
of Leipzig, and competed in decathlons, high jump, and soccer.

I am looking for news articles or other such info. My cousin's dad once
had a book with a "yellow paper cover" about the Bar Kochba organization.

Ideas anyone?

Searching: STOLL from Massbach #general

martin b mannlein <matthewm@...>
 

This is being posted for a Dutch cousin without e-mail. He seeks
information on the STOLL family, originally >from Massbach. He would love
to exchange information, of which he has lots, on the STOLL family.

We know that a Jacob and a Moses STOll emigrated to NYC and another
STOLL went to Denver.

Ekaterinoslav connection? #belarus

Jerold Touger
 

I recall seeing a post a few weeks ago >from someone who reported that family
members >from Belarus had first moved to Ekaterinoslav in the Ukraine before
emigrating. This was true also for two TOUGER sisters, Bessie and Anna, who
with their husbands (the former married Sam SCHEFRIN, the latter Max or Mendel
TOUGER) first moved to Ekaterinoslav and then (c. 1906) to Milwaukee. Their
naturalization papers indicate Borisov (Bessie and Sam), Novine (Max) and
Chachichove (Anna) as their respective birthplaces.
I am wondering if other people also have forebears who moved to
Ekaterinoslav before leaving Russia completely. Does this ring a bell for any
SCIFRINs/SCHEFRINs? Is this a common enough circumstance to merit further
inquiry by the SIG?

Anita Fischer <anitwal@...>
 

My local Jewish Paper published an article about a Dr. Arnold Noyek of
Toronto. I have seen this name on the Litvak list.

If someone wants a copy please email me privately and I can scan it and
send it to you.

A Happy New Year to All and as my South African relatives say, Well Over the
Fast.

Try: John, Charles, Wilbur, Marmaduke, Beulah, Chester . . . <g>

Who knows? They may have taken ANY name. Quite likely one with the same
initial (but Calman, usually written Kalman, would likely be a K name. Aren't
you guys paying any attention to the dozens of postings in which kind and
thoughtful people (like myself <G>) explain that there is no direct
relationship between Yiddish first names and those that people assume in the
USA?

Ohab Zedek #general

Marge Dallis <ar614@...>
 

Over the past year or so, I have seen many posts regarding the
synagogue, Ohab Zedek in New York City. My maternal grandparents
were married in this synagogue, and my paternal grandparents un-
doubtedly were members in 1880's and early 1890's on the lower
East Side. Thus it was confusing to me to read information about
this Synagogue being located uptown.
I finally got the correct information: First Hungarian Congregation
Ohab Zedek was founded in 1873 at 172 Norfolk St. in the synagogue
building which had formerly belonged to Congregation Anshe Chesed.
In 1908 they moved to 18 W. 116 St., and in 1926 moved to 118 W. 95 St.
Recently I phoned them at their current address to inquire about any
records they might have >from those early days. The lady who answered
the phone told me that all records were destroyed in a fire which
occurred sometime in the 1950's.
I hope this information answers some of your questions.

My advice is to get signed up to Obituary Times, a daily email newsletter
that covers just about every state and province and just about all of the
newspapers obituary notices.
Visit the ODT web site at <http://www.rootsweb.com/~obituary>

Where does one find people to do a obituary lookup when all that is
known is the name, place and date of death, but not the specific
newspaper?

Marem = Miriam #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 


Has anyone heard of the name "Marem"?
The Russian letter "E" (I don't know about Ukrainian)is often pronounced
as though it had a "Y" in front of it; so perhaps Marem would have been
pronounced MarYem -- which would then be simply a corruption of your ggm's
Hebrew name Miryam (Miriam).

A further clue: Maria is the standard version of Miryam in a great many
European languages. It already appears in the Septuagint (a Jewish
translation of the Torah >from Hebrew to Greek made in 300 BCE) as the name
of Moses' sister -- and is still better known as the New Testament's
transliteration of Miryam, the name of the mother of Jesus. (And Marina
is presumably a Russian diminutive for Maria.)

So I think you can assume the rabbi was correct in saying that your ggm's
original Hebrew name "was most likely Miriam" -- even if she or others
spelled it Marem on documents!
