Re: Where does the surname BEHAR originate from? #general

I searched a Sephardic community in a MA community who arrived here in
US abt 1912. They included several families with name Behar >from Belat,
Istanbul Turkey who had settled there after escaping the Spanish Inquisition.

After the Inquisition, families who had finances were able to make their
way to Eastern European countries ie Netherlands, etc.

The Marranos ... those who couldn't afford to escape were eventually saved
by a Turkish ship that went to Turkey to offer escape to those who had
been unable leave. Some chose not to leave .. see Jewish Film Society
film, Last of the Marranos.

I'm currently researching the family history of a family by the name of
BEHAR and was wondering where this name originates from? I found Leah
BEHAR, Samuel BEHAR and Eugenie BEHAR in the 1911 UK census but would be
interested to know where they were born and when they emigrated to the
UK. I searched the Ancestry index and found a number of BEHAR families
who came >from the French Quarters in Constantinople, Turkey.

If anyone has any information on the origins of the name I'd be
interested in hearing >from them.

Re: DE JONA (DE YONA) family in Lviv (Lemberg) #general

Isak, Thanks to the Gesher Galicia data base that Brooke Shreier Ganz
manages, I have discovered that my ggg grandmother was Jutte Jonas from
Lviv. She married Daniel Josef Ordner and I believe her second husband had
a surname of Urich. I have mapped the Jonas family entries >from that data
base onto an excel spread sheet and am happy to share that with you or
anyone else who contacts me directly.

P.S. Brooke, **Thanks for all you do** and for providing some additional
Jonas spelling variations that I will now research.

Dear Steve:

GenealogyBank (as subscription service), has digitized the following
Scranton newspaper: Druid (Scranton, Pennsylvania) Newspaper Archives
(1910-1913). http://www.genealogybank.com/gbnk/

All told, there are 299 newspapers >from Pennsylvania that have been
digitized and available online through GenealogyBank. Papers also are
available for the other 49 states. It is a great service and I have had
tremendous success in locating genealogical material through this service.

Good luck with your research.

Re: Where does the surname BEHAR originate from? #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

The origination of the Sephardic BEHAR family was initially >from Spain and
Turkey and they can be found all over the Jewish world including such places as
Manchester, England, Havana, Cuba, Miami Beach, Florida, Paris, France,
Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Rio de
Janiero, Brazil, and many others in Latin America, Europe and Israel.

I suggest the poster contact the Sephardic SIG and other resources on the
Internet regarding Sephardic Jews. In addition, it would help if the poster
stated where their BEHAR family had settled in England which would help in
determining information about their origins.

Also, the British National Archives online has listings for: Rebeka Behar, >from
Turkey. Resident in London, 1932; Rachel Behar (re-admission), >from Turkey.
Resident in Glasgow, 1932; and Jack Behar, >from Turkey (Spanish Jew). Resident
in London, 1931.

Professions in Polish Tax List - Translation Needed #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

I am looking for a translation of the following professions which have
been abbreviated in early 20th century tax lists.

If you are certain of the meaning, please contact me privately, unless
you think the reply is of interest to the group. (We have already
speculated, but are looking for someone fluent in Polish and
knowledgeable about occupational abbreviations.) In the case of "ul"
preceding the profession, we are wondering why it is included since
the usual meaning is "street," but we are uncertain of the context
when it appears before a profession name. (Special thanks to Julian
Bussgang who has already translated the majority of the professions
in these lists.)

bltz
drog
dz. kins - "owner of" -- what?
em. rades
essp.
ganant
nsucz
ozoc
rzen
Schicht
zmiana/layer
sj. hsn. Sjonista
syr.Kasy
udoza po Dyr.

Don't know what "ul" means in the context below, since it usually
translates to "street"

ul-piek - (assume "piekarz" - baker)
ul. broz.
ul. real or ul. realnosc
ul.dobr
ul.kam or kamienin
zods or sod

Thanks in advance...

I drove the distance between the two cities, and it is not so far. Does
anyone have information about synagogues in either Riga or Libau in the

"Passlosen" without passports and wonder >from what place they came although
I suspect Koenigsberg.
