Yizkor Book Project, October 2013 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Busy, busy, busy is how I would describe the level of activity in the Yizkor
Book Project over the month of October. I am pleased to let you know that
over the last month no less than three projects were completed and I would
like to sincerely thank all of the people involved with them who saw these
projects through to their successful completion online. The projects are:

Halmeu, Romania (In memory of the communities of Halmin-Turcz and vicinity)
Slovakia (The Tragedy of Slovak Jewry in Slovakia)
Through Forests and Pathways

This means we now have around 90 projects that are online in their entirety
and quite a few have been published as part of our Yizkor Books in Print
Project and many others are in the process of being prepared for print. More
details of the books that are now available in print and others that are in
the works may be found at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

All the projects I note in my reports owe their existence to a considerable
number of volunteers (500+) and we endeavor to credit all of those who are
involved and have been involved in the YB Project over the years (>from 1994)
in the following list appearing at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ If you
have yet to become involved in our project and would like to take part in
the very gratifying experience of seeing these translations go online, I'd
be happy to hear >from you.

I read with interest the history of Tabor. I have recently discovered that
my 4th great grandfather came >from Tabor. I was trying to see if I could
find him or his family in the history and am looking to see if someone could
possibly figure out who he might have been. All I know is that he was named
SIMON MEYER or SCHEMAJA SIMON and was born about 1740 in Tabor. His family
MAY have been driven out by Maria Theresa in 1745. In 1767, he received a
safe conduct pass to Raguhn in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany. He lived in Raguhn,
but died on 2 March 1801 while visiting one of his children in Kothen,
Sachsen-Anhalt. Does anyone have any clues as to who he might be in the
list of Jewish families of Tabor?

Thank you.

Ginesya #ukraine

Herbert Lazerow
 

<Are any of you familiar with the given name Ginesya>

According to Alexander Beider, A Dictionary of Ashkenazic Given Names (2001), Ginesya is a variant on Ginendl, which was originally borrowed in the Rhineland >from German Christians, and spread eastward. There are variants like Nane, Nenish and Nenke. He doubts that it is related to Agnes, a proposition which other scholars advance. He suggests that the root name is similar to the biblical Hannah.
<Can you please tell me the hebrew translation?>

In the records I examined, the name is Gnesya or Ginesya in both the Cyrillic and Hebrew versions.
