Suggestion for ViewMate requests #general

Eric Cooper
 

I suggest that in addition to the source language, researchers also
include surnames, and any other information like town or date that
fits, *on the subject line* of email requests for ViewMate translation.
For example, if you already know you've got a 1904 birth record for
Moshe Cohen, please include that in the subject line.

Maybe it's just me being lazy, but I know I routinely delete most of
the current ones without opening them. If I saw ones with names I'm
researching, I'd be more likely to pursue them further. And it's an
easy way to make additional connections among researchers.

LANGSAM-SEIDENFELD #general

My great grandfather Mordecai LANGSAM (1878-1953) called Mordechai SEIDENFELD
in Poland. (Seidenfeld is his mother's maiden name). Originated >from Lisko
Lesko (Minsk?) Poland (Galicia?).

My question is how is it related to "Bnei Issachar" Rav Tzvi Elimelech Shapira
(previously called Langsam) and whether he has relatives - not - known in
Israel?

Thanks a lot.

Information about shochets, mashgiachs #general

Jake Jacobs
 

Is there any compilation of information about shochets or masgiachs, either
in the US or in Hungary? Several of my ancestors were shochets or
mashgiachs, one in the U.S. (arrived Phila. 1887, immediately moved to
Indianapolis); others in Hungary (one born Hernadszentandras 1847, another
born Olaszliszka 1841). I have not found any documentation of their work
itself, my information is based on oral family histories.

Does anybody have suggestions on where I might find documentation of any
kind, other than censuses? Much appreciated --

JGSLA - Monday, Nov. 18 - "Beyond the Manifest" with Emily Garber #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

Researchers are invited to the next program of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Los Angeles:

"Beyond the Manifest:
Confirming One's Ancestral Origins Using Alternative Sources"
with Emily Garber

Monday, November 18th at 7:30PM
Valley Beth Shalom Synagogue
15739 Ventura Blvd. Encino

When several communities in Eastern Europe have similar names,
which often have been changed over the years, it may be difficult to
unambiguously identify one's family's shtetl of origin. Considering
the investment in time and energy in researching one's shtetl, it is
imperative to get it right. The genealogical proof standard requires
rigor in our research methodology. With its application and a
well-designed research plan, we assure that our findings are robust
and our conclusions not easily challenged. Emily Garber will discuss
how to improve your methodology, along with suggesting different
genealogical sources and creative searching techniques. In addition
to traditional methods, she'll cover other resources like
landsmanshaften burial data, online archival material, and the Shoah
Names database with the goal of providing tools and methods for
confirming the location of ones family shtetls and adding new records
to your family tree.

Emily Garber has been an active member of the Phoenix Jewish
Genealogical Society for several years, currently serves as one of the
moderators for the JewishGen Discussion Group and is the
communications director for Ukraine Special Interest Group. A
member of Gesher Galicia and a subscriber to the GG discussion
group, Emily made a three-week family history journey to Ukraine
in June. Her visits to numerous Galician towns (Lviv, Yaremche, Skole,
Kolomyya, Ustechko, Torske, Tovste, and Zaleszczyki) are chronicled
on her genealogy blog -- www.extrayad.blogspot.com.

The JGSLA Traveling Library will be available starting at 7:00PM -
Members free, guests $5.00. Refereshments served.

Re: Nekhama connection with Ginesya #general

tom
 

Genesis is >from Greek not Hebrew. The Hebrew name for the book of
Genesis is b'reishit, whose root is resh-alef-shin meaning head or top.

As far as I know, Genesya is of Slavic origin, and it's possibly linked
to Hanna (at least by sound), since Russian usually changes the "h" to
a "g". The "ya" at the end would be a usual Slavic feminine suffix
rather than a reference to god, as in many biblical names.

But the link to Nehama still seems to be mostly empirical.

Trying to contact C. Preece #general

RuthNW <ruthnw@...>
 

A few days ago I was conducting an online search of a Polish surname list
and came across the following entry: WOOLF (WOLF?). The name of the person
who submitted was C. Preece (gender not disclosed). Next to the name was
his/her email address and the date of the submission: 2002. I tried to
email this person about our possible family connection (>from Poland) but
my message bounced. (I'm assuming that the email address had been
discontinued and that C. Preece is now using a different ISP.)

If anyone knows how to contact this individual, please let me know. This
is the first time I've heard of someone else's ancestor whose surname was
originally WOLF then added an extra "o" - just like my beloved grandfather,
Szya Wolf KUJAWSKI who adopted the "more English-sounding" name of Simon
WOLF after settling in England. On my grandparents' marriage certificate,
Simon's surname is given as "WOOLF."
