Translation of Roman alphahbet "Chenat Glanwan" #usa

e l
 

Hello Fellow Genners,

I have come across an ancestor's New York death certificate which gives the profession of the deceased as "Chenat glanwan"  in Roman letters.  Would someone be so kind as to identify the language and offer a translation, please.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Edward

Reminder to Fill Out the US Census Form By April 1 #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Please remember to complete the US Census form you received in the mail by April 1, 2020. Please remind your society members also!  Thus far only 30.2% of households have completed the form To see how your city is doing with completing the form go to:  https://2020census.gov/en/response-rates.html

 

You probably also received reminder letters along with the letter with your unique code that you type into the form. The Census Bureau will follow-up with you if you do not complete the form.  It takes only a few minutes as there are very few questions, compared to previous US censuses.

 

Starting March 12, US households were invited to and expected to participate in the decennial census. For the first time the US census will be digital rather than the pen or pencil to paper we are accustomed to. We are expected to go to https://my2020census.gov/  to fill out the form.  It will be open to the public through July 31. Based on an earlier test run the Census Bureau expect about six out ten households to fill out the form online. For those who have limited Internet access or prefer to stay offline the Bureau will also be collecting census responses over the phone and on paper forms scheduled to arrive in mid-March, and then in early April to every household that has not responded by then.  Beginning in mid-May, it's planning to send workers equipped with an iPhone app to collect and deliver information about people in households that have not self-responded to the census.

For more information on the questions go to:

https://2020census.gov/en/about-questions.html

 

There is no citizenship question on the 2020 Census despite attempts by the Administration to  include it which was stopped by the US Supreme Court last year.

 

The webform and call centers are available in 13 languages.

 

It is important to complete the form. The results of the count are used to redraw voting districts and redistribute Congressional seats, Electoral votes and an estimate $1.5 trillion a year in federal spending among the states.

Miriam:  Please check with Sinai Memorial Chapel at 1501 Divisadero St. in SF.  Most Jews in SF (my parents, grandparents, and others) were buried by them in Colma.  Hope this helps.

Re: Can I assume ROSENBLUMs buried in Brisker cemetery section came from Brest?

Judy Kaufman
 

Thanks, everyone.  I have now really good confirming evidence that my great-grandfather, Jacob Rosenblum, came from Brest, thanks especially to Renee Steinig's help above.  She linked me to the a Brisker Unterstuetzungs Verein webpage which has a list of all the members in 1925, including my great-grandfather's name.  I also found the naturalization papers of his sister's husband, in which the husband says that his wife, Jacob's sister, is from Brest.

Judy Kaufman:

My experience: 

My ancestors from the region of Brest generally didn't seem to want to leave traces. Maybe they didn't think their individual lives were merited recording.  

It seem that people from small towns sometimes (often?) reported their place-of-origin as being the nearest big city.  

The case of "Brest" is special:  it was the name of both the city and of a region. It's a big region.  Your ancestors may have lived in the core of old Brest or in a village quite a distance away.

U.S. burials: My grandparents were buried in the 1950s in a Bialystok landsmanshaft section in a New York cemetery, despite having no detectable connection to Bialystok.  (There's no record of their showing interest in their places-of-origin or connecting to their landsmen in any respect.)   My theory:  They --or their children-- got a bargain price on these plots at a convenient nearby cemetery. 

Hope this is useful to you.

Thanks,

Henry

What is the difference between "town" and "residence" in Ukraine Death Records on JewishGen #ukraine

Judy Kaufman
 

What is the difference between "town" and "residence" in records such as these:



Judy Kaufman
Irvine, CA

ROSENBLUM (Brest)
FRIEDMAN (still figuring it out, likely Lithuania)
LEIDERMAN (Khashchuvatye)
KONETSPOLSK (Khaschuvatye)
WEINSTEIN (Sokolow-Malopolski)
RINENHEIM (Sokolow-Malopolski)
LUKA (Sokolow-Malopolski)
RASKIN (Chernihiv)
SCHIMAYATZSKY(Chernihiv)


Would a boy and a girl in the same family ever both be given essentially the same names? #ukraine #names

Judy Kaufman
 

I found on a Chabad.org page that "Two siblings should not share the same name. This to prevent the effect of an 'evil eye'" - so my question comes down to whether or not male and female versions of the same name are covered under this prohibition - due to the following:

I have a great-grandmother Nechama SCHIMAYATSKY from Chernihiv, Ukraine.   A person with a pretty close DNA connection to me has a great-grandfather Menachem SCHUMIATSKIJ from Baturyn, Chernihiv.  They were born a few years apart.  Nechama's father as listed on her death certificate is Moses; Menachem's father's name (from Menachem's gravestone) is Benyamin Moshe - so they could or could not be the same father.  We are assuming that Nechama and Menachem are the female and male versions of the same name.  If related names like this were never given to siblings, then we will conclude they were cousins.  If male and female siblings could be given essentially the same names, they could be siblings.

Re: What became of the Suwalki-Lomza group run by Marilyn? #lithuania

Sally Bruckheimer
 

I think that at least part of the reason for Marilyn dropping the Suwalki - Lomza SIG and journal, was that there wasn't much that they hadn't published. The last journals were republishing previously published histories and data, reworked to bring up new relationships and information.  But she had gotten and translated what was in Eastern Europe and available.

While I do enjoy seeing and hearing Yiddish, I don’t read or write Hebrew. Can someone please give the English phonetics? Like I use kinna hura to express G-d willing. TIA.

Re: Given name Anuta from Bessarabia #bessarabia

I have an Anuta related distantly by marriage from Panevezys, Lithuania. I never knew if this was her original name, or her name after immigrating to South Africa. That’s the only time I’ve ever heard that name. 
On behindthename.com, I found Anuța in Romanian to be a diminutive for Ana. 


Re: Given name Anuta from Bessarabia #bessarabia

Alexander Sharon
 

Aniuta - One of the Russian popular diminutive names of Anna.

There are several others:

Аня (Ана), Анночка (Аннечка), Аннушка, Аннуша, Аннуся (Аннюся), Ануся (Анюся), Нуся (Нюса), Аннюня, Нюня, Анюра, Нюра, Нюрася, Нюраха, Нюраша, Анюша (Ануша), Нюша, Анюта, Нюта, Аннета, Нета, Ася

Re: NYC Voter Lists includes Children #general #usa

 

I have also seen this, but I tend to ignore that list in most cases because it does not include much useful information. Especially if I have 1920 and 1925 (NY) Censuses.


Re: #germany - Transcription of two hand written documents from Augsburg Germany #germany

fredelfruhman
 

I have just sent a transcription privately to Mr. Oppenheimer, as it was not clear whether he wanted it to be public or not.

I hope to work on the second document a bit later today.

This is just a heads-up that I plan to work on the first (left-most) document.  (I'm letting you and others know, so that there will  not be a duplication of effort).

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook Page #yizkorbooks

Bruce Drake
 

One theme I’ve seen across many Yizkor book excerpts is how crucial children were to the survival of their families and towns as they tried to survive under the boot of the Nazis whether in towns or ghettos. “About the Heroic Role of the Jewish Children During Nazi Rule” from the Yizkor book of Tarnow, Poland puts a spotlight on this story and how important the children were in getting food to people and helping in many other ways. They would stand on endless lines for food and endanger themselves by sneaking post German guards in order to smuggle bread, flour and potatoes. “The intrepid Jewish children filled an original, rebellious, function with a rare heroism,” recounts the writer of this chapter.

But these “small children from five to eight years old, with small emaciated little bodies” paid a price like all Jews. They were beaten when caught, and the first victims during the Nazis’ murder aktsias and deportations were the Jewish children.
