Re: the name Kivel #lithuania

elanc@...
 

Akiva/Kiva is a distinct name, not derived >from Yaakov/Jacob/Jankiel.
Both names are derived >from a common root - the Hebrew word Akev which
means heel or to follow. The biblical legend has it that Isaac had twin
sons. The first was Esav. The second boy emerged at birth holding on to
his brother's heel, which is why he was named Yaakov. The name Akiva
traces back at least to Rabbi Akiva who lived in the 1st century.

Elan Caspi
Belmont, CA

From: Peter Cohen <peter.cohen@outlook.com> In the course of chasing down
clues, I was told by a Rabbi that "there is no such name as Kivel,
perhaps it's a nickname for Akivah." Is that correct? Would the Hebrew
name of someone called Kivel be Akivah?

...........The Rabbi's guess is correct. According to Alexander Beider's
exhaustive Dictionary of Ashkenazic Given Names, Kivl is a derived form
of Yakef-Jacob-Yaakov by way of Akiva. He considers Akiva a "Variation"
on Yaakov, and Kivel a "Derivation" by way of Akiva. Beider's references
for Kivl [Yiddish] are >from 19th century Lithuania, Belorussia, and
Ukraine. He gives the forms Kivel' and Kivko [Russian] for the same
period. (However, the final "o" shows Ukrainian influence.) Finally,
he gives the form Kivele [Yiddish] for 20th century Eastern Europe.
I have a great-grandfather Kiva (Akiva) >from Belarus, whose grandson
was named Kiva after him and the grandson's name in America became
Michael, if that helps.Sonia Kovitz

This is incorrect.

Akiva and Yaakov are independant Hebrew names

Kivel is probably a derivative of Akiva.
Kovel/Kopel is a derivative of Yaakov.

A Relevant Story #ukraine

I recently read with pleasure a novel about a Jewish family leaving Poland/Ukraine for the US before 1850. Well researched and well-written, it brings people and places to life.
My review of the book, "The Promised Land" by Ruhama Veltfort is posted online at metapsychology reviews.

JGS of Colorado - Sun Dec 15 - An Organized Approach to Researching American Records #general

Terry Lasky <talasky@...>
 

An Organized Approach to Researching American Records presented by
Terry Lasky

The program is at the University of Denver computer lab, >from
10:00 am until noon
Address is: Sturm Hall, 2000 E. Asbury Ave., Denver, 3rd Floor
RSVPs required by December 13th to Terry Lasky at talasky@comcast.net
Open to the public (though RSVPs required)

Most genealogists do most of their online research using Ancestry.com
and FamilySearch.org. These are the top two genealogy sites for
researching American records. However, the approach that these two sites
use in displaying the results of user searches leads to a haphazard
approach to their research. There is no consistency, repeatability or
a way to know if all bases have been covered. The approach that will be
presented will set up a systematic method that will be repeatable and
that will lead to a final goal and will insure that all bases are covered.
Following the presentation there will be a number of expert level genealogists
available to help you get started on your genealogy or to help you get
over roadblocks in your research.

Terry Lasky began pursuing his family history in 1988 before anything
was on the internet. He was employed as a Database Architect by
Lockheed-Martin and therefore had a large amount of knowledge about
databases and search techniques. As data started to become more available
online, it was natural for him to use those techniques to find sites
and data that most people were not familiar with. Over the last 10-15 years,
Terry has made numerous presentations on a number of subjects, most
associated with the internet, search techniques and useful sites.
He has also taught genealogy and mentored numerous people of all levels
of knowledge.
