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

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

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

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

There are several others:

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.

Re: Children named after their living parents #general

Jill Whitehead
 

The comment that names were repeated for successive children after an earlier one died applies to my Brown family of Edinburgh and Vishtinetz. My great grandparents were first cousins and in the 1870's they named their first two infants born in Edinburgh, Julius and George, after their respective fathers Jacob and Gershon. However, both boys died shortly after birth. They then had female twins whom they called Julia and Georgina. Georgina lived until she was 2 years old and Julia died at the aged of 25. They had another daughter who died at 17 but then better luck with three other children, including my grandfather.

Marlene Silveman decided to end the group and its journal a few years ago when a family member became ill, I think. 

it seems there is still a demand for Suwalki Lomza themed information,which would be more suitable online.

Re: Children named after their living parents #general

Yehuda Berman
 

As far as I know, in Jewish law it is forbidden to name a child after a living parent because it violates the Fourth Commandment, to honor your parents - somebody might mix up a child with their parent and that is not to their honor. Sefardim name a child after a grandparent because they don't think a mix-up with a grandparent is likely but Ashkenazim forbid that as well. The business of not naming after a living relative is simply an extension of that ban. So if somebody is named after a parent the parent is either dead, or the family has broken with tradition (that happened even in the old days), or there was some (gentile) legal reason for giving the same (gentile) name.
Incidentally, there is a custom of not marrying a person with the same name as a parent, or having the newlywed change their name. My daughter married a man whose mother had the same name. She didn't want to change her name so she and her husband changed their last name instead to prevent any mix-up.

National Emergency Library Created by Internet Archive #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

On March 24, 2020 the Internet Archive announce it suspended its waitlists for the over 1.4 million books in their lending library by creating a National Emergency Library without joining a waitlist. In addition to the general public it assists students with access to assigned readings and library materials for the remainder of the US Academic Year. Due to the Coronavirus  outbreak public libraries are closed and this facilitates access to read while keeping safe.  The waitlist suspension will run through  the later of June 30, 2020 or the end of the national emergency.  You can access the national emergency library at: https://archive.org/details/nationalemergencylibrary

 

The National Library brings the books from the Phillips Academy Andover, Marygrove College and much of Trent University’s collection with over one million other books that have been donated other libraries to readers worldwide that are locked out of their libraries..  The books are all digitized.

 

In addition to the National Emergency Library, the Internet Archive also offers free public access to 2.5 million fully downloadable public domain books, which do not require waitlists to view.

Given name Anuta from Bessarabia #bessarabia

Alberto Guido Chester
 

I knew my great grandaunt as AÑUTA (the letter Ñ in Spanish sound like AG in Italian) which is certainly a nickname.
 
She was born aprox 1900 in Bender, Bessarabia.
 
I have looked at the Jewishgen Given name database with no success.
 
Her siblings were named Pauline, David, Adolf, etc, that is "common" Argentinian names.
 
Can someone suggest the civil name for Añuta ?
 
Thanks in advance

Diane, I see you are listed as a researcher on Jewishgen so you are not completely new to research. Providing DOB, names of relatives, place of birth etc would make it easier for others to assist.

Have you tried the other researchers listed who specify Israel in their research profile?

 

I searched the Arolsen archives for holocaust victims and could not find any of the names you have mentioned.


Re: San Francisco Death Certificate General Question #usa #germany

Renee Steinig
 

Thinking that there might have been a misspelling or changed name, I
searched on Ancestry for last name O*NH*S*, date of death 20 Nov 1948.
The result, in the California Death Index:

Curtis ONHAUS
Social Security # 553-40-4775
Born 24 Nov 1903 "Other Country"
Died 20 Nov 1948 San Francisco
Mother's maiden name: WERTHEIMER

The same spelling appears on his small gravestone, which is pictured
on FindaGrave.
