My best advice beyond what has already been mentioned is to explore stevemorse.org.  He has many useful tools for searching naturalization, census and other records.

Sadovnick-Belfer family history

eitaniriel@...
 

Shalom,

I am in the process of writing my family history and creating a family tree after 30+ years of collecting data. I am also including the Kasow, Lewins, Bloch and Krohn families listed below along with their towns.

I am responsible for the Klishkivtsi Bessarabia Ukraine Kehilalink and after 12 years of inactivity I am going to add some of my father’s letters describing the vicinity in very vivid terms.

If anyone has any connection to any of these families, I would appreciate having this information.

Wishing good health to everyone.

Is anyone familiar with the name Jur (or Jure or Jura)?
Is this a Polish named that was used in Galicia, or perhaps it had a Jewish origin?

In particular I am wondering if it was a form of Yair (×™×�יר)  or perhaps it was short for Yeruchim (ירוח×�) as in Yeruchim Fishel?

Any insights or experience with this would be appreciated.

Thank you.

This is Hebrew

OR = Light  [ Root is Aleph Vav Reish ]

Ori = Uri = "My Light"

Yair = future tense =  will light

Yerucham comes from a different root   namely Reish Chet Mem, meaning compassion or feel sorry for... as in Ra'cha'mim.

name change #names

Richard Gross
 

12 March 2020

I wonder if anyone could shed light on why my husband’s relative, Solomon Israel, suddenly changed his surname to Sloman sometime between the births of his children, Israel Israel born about 1826, Elias Israel born about 1830, Rachel Israel born about 1835, Sarah Sloman born about 1837, Jacob Sloman born about 1839 and Jessie Sloman born about 1842, all in London, Middlesex.

In the Leeds Database he’s listed as Solomon Israel later Sloman.

In 1941 Solomon was an artist known as Sol Isreal but in the following censuses he’s recorded as a chiropodist/surgeon.

All the details of Solomon and his wife, Mary nee Polack, are the parents of all the children who are definitely part of the family but why the name was changed is a mystery. My husband suggests that it may have been due to antisemitism. However

Would this have been done legally and if so where could I find proof. If not, how would the family have ‘advertised’ the change?

Looking forward to replies from all and sundry.

Amazingly prompt help Fredel. I wonder who else might have also responded had the OP included a name and location in the Topic title?

I'm researching the Braunfeld family.   Samuel & Nathan Braunfeld came from what was then Neu Sandez, Austria and is now Nowy Sacz, Poland.    They were married to Werner women (sisters?) from the nearby town of Gorlice.

Actively Searching . . .

SANDI ROOT
 

Friends in Jewish Genealogy:

 

The names I search have been posted, edited and upgraded for years on JG Family Finder and Family Tree of the Jewish People, with only 2 solid responses - for which I am forever grateful - * a Chicago cousin who now lives in Israel, and a ** Northern California cousin-by-marriage.  So, I thought I would take a chance and possibly spread my search out a little wider, using this format, and see what happens.

 

The regions I search are: Australia, Canada, Lithuania, Poland, South Africa, London’s East End, U.S. (Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Brooklyn, Saint Louis, San Francisco).


I belong to several Jewish genealogy groups, in addition to JG, with nary a response. 

 

Take a look and let me know if anything jumps out at you:

Re: berkowitz family

Jill Whitehead
 

Hi Morris,

Berkowitz is a patronymic name ie son of Berko.My great grand aunt Rebecca Plotnovsky of Raczki in Suwalki Gubernia married Solomon Berkowitz Karobelnik of Suwalki Gubernia in Hull, UK in 1889. He soon dropped the Karobelnik (which means a peddlar) in favour of Berkowitz. Berkowitz then became Birks in the next generation.
