Jewish Cemetery Photos from Teplice-Sobedruhy #general

Julian H. Preisler
 

Dear List Members:

I have nearly 100 cemetery images (some of individual tombstones)
that are >from the old Jewish Cemetery in Teplice-Sobedruhy in Northern Boehmia,
Czech Republic. The town of Sobedruhy was once known as Soborten and
is now part of the city of Teplice (Teplitz). I am hoping to create a
working list of people buried there and am not able to translate the
Hebrew writing on the grave stones. If there is anyone with connections
to the town and can read Hebrew I can send you photos of the gravestones.
The cemetery is a cultural landmark and recently was enclosed with a fence
and gate. There is today a small Jewish Community in Teplice and they
now own the cemetery and are embarking on a restoration project.
You can contact me at jhp1963@yahoo.com - I also have much information
to share on the former Jewish Community of Teplice-Sobedruhy for
anyone who has connections to the town. My grandfather was >from
Sobedruhy and his family goes back to the early 1700's there.

Thanks very much.

Saul and Solomon are completely different biblical names, but because
of the similarity of sound,
Especially to English speakers. To speakers of other languages there
c/sh/would be quite a difference.

Both were written with a shin, the same shin?

it's quite understandable that sometimes
sol and saul might get confused. Maybe the person didn't like the
full name solomon as much, or maybe there was another solomon in the
family, such as an in-law, where it's customary to avoid the possible
confusion of duplicated names.

So the short answer is most probably yes.
ps. as it happens, there's also a third form of sol,
as a common sephardic female name.
Good point.

ViewMate Translation Request - Russian Marriage Record #general

Aaron Slotnik
 

Hello

I am seeking confirmation of all the names on the marriage record of my
great-grandparents Anshel Zlotnik and Gitel Rzeznik (spelling?).

In a previous translation >from 10 years ago on a poorer image, there was
some question about the mothers' maiden names of the bride and groom.
Anshel's mother's name was transliterated as Chaya Anshelow and Gitel's mother's
name was transliterated as Sura Gelda Nusanow. I would like to confirm that
those are indeed surnames and not patronymics.

Neither of those surnames are present in the JRI-Poland indices for
Zakroczym or Nasielsk (where these families were from) however, there are
records for ENCEL and MOCNY. Could those be alternate transliterations of
Anshel and Nusan respectively?

I've uploaded the marriage record to ViewMate at the following location for
your review:
