Re: Aleph Yud - what does it mean?

Dahn Cukier
 


We would have to see the document. If it was issued by the
Palestine Mandate government, then like the money of the
time, it may mean Eretz Yisroel. Many Jews saw the area as
Land of Israel, and aleph-yod was added to show that.

You can see examples of notes and coins at

Good day. In the 1932 census in Tzfat, my great-grandmother's country of birth and nationality is described in Hebrew letters as "Aleph Yud". Could someone shed a light as to what it means? I guess it's an acronym, but I cannot find its meaning.
Thank you,

Re: Aleph Yud - what does it mean?

Moe Neuer
 

If it's referring to origin/nationality, the most likely answer is Eretz Yisroel, meaning land of Israel. That abbreviation has a long history, and is still used today, like U.K. for United Kingdom.

Re: Can anyone tell me how long has the name Neta ( נֶטַע ) has been in use?

Ury Link
 

The famine name Neta came out from the German names Ageneta or Agnes.
In the 17 century we can find it in the book "Beit Shemuel" about jewish names, 
Alexander Beider in his book" Ashkenazic Given Names" write that this name was find in 1347 in Frankfurt 
and after this time also in 1546 in Prague and in more towns in Europe.
My conclusion is , that famine name Neta was very old and where  used from the middle ages in Jewish families.

Re: Aleph Yud - what does it mean?

Ury Link
 

We can not know why it is written,the letters Alef-YUd (א״י) is it on a document or is it perhaps on a Tombstone ? 
If it is on a stone then I can find a lot of abbrivations for this letter combination Alef-Yud.
Please let me know what it is' then i can give you a good answer.

In the UK, “AY” refers to “Adath Yisroel” – arguably the frummest ‘sect’ of Judaism.

Re: Immigration to Brazil

Mirta Scheffer
 

Hello,
I wonder if I could find help with my fathers side of the family.
My father Jose Scheffer and his sister and parents lived in Pelotas, Brazil from 1921 to 1930. He was born in Argentina in 1914. His father was Leib Scheffer and his grandfather was Haim Scheffer.
Pelotas is the only information I have.
Is there any way to find information from this time period in Pelotas?

Thank you so much,

Re: SIG group mailings

Chuck Weinstein
 

The SIGs are still where they have been all along - accessible via the JewishGen home page.  The link on the groups page is strictly for this group.  Traffic on all the SIG Discussion Group pages has been extremely light for the past few weeks, but they are still here.  Nothing has changed in the way you access all other discussion groups on JewishGen.  They are still on the old platform. 

Chuck Weinstein
chuck1@... 

I rarely receive the SIG digests anymore.

When I click on the 'View all your groups.jewishgen.org' or 'Edit your subscriptions here' links I see the only thing I seem subscribed to is "Main".

And on that screen i was sent to I can find no way to add or check on my SIG subscriptions. I am posting this topic on the Main list because I am sure a lot of people would like to know the answer. The last message I sent to support only got me a default form reply with a link that did not accept either my new or old jewishgen passwords. So I gave up.

Please don't send me another default response because I cannot access the reply. My passwords don't work. Please just answer my question on the Main list so I and the many others in my position can benefit.

Thank you!

Google Books Updated

A great non-genealogy resource for genealogy is Google Books. It’s been around for 15 years and has over 40 million books in 400 languages available on the website. Google just announced its redesign which allows you to access everything you want to know about that book in one place. “We’ve redesigned Google Books so people can now quickly access details like the book’s description, author’s history and other works, reader reviews and options for where you can purchase or borrow the book. And for those using Google Books for research, each book’s bibliographies are located prominently on the page and the citation tool allows you to cite the source in your preferred format, all in one spot.”  See: https://www.blog.google/products/search/15-years-google-books/

 

The video on the above website includes how a genealogist, Lisa Lisson, uses Google Books.  It also advises where you may purchase or borrow the book.

 

To go to NEW Google Books see: https://www.google.com/books/edition/A_Wrinkle_in_Time/r119-dYq0mwC?hl=en&gbpv=0

 

On Google books you can search for a phrase or a word, ancestral names, towns etc.

New World War ll Russian Army Database

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is commemorating the 75th anniversary of World War ll’s Allied victory by creating a new database called Memory Road which contains photos of WWll Soviet Army veterans. Currently, there are over 302,000 veterans documented with their personal photos.  Each page on veterans has a link to the Memory of the People database which includes the millions of awards given to Soviet Army service people.

 

Memory Road can be searched by first name, patronymic name (honoring the father usually the middle name such as Ivanovich) or last name.  Go to https://foto.pamyat-naroda.ru/

Yes, it is in Russian, but if you use Chrome as your browser it will translate it. You can also use Google Translate https://translate.google.com/ or another translation service such as DeepL https://www.deepl.com/translator or go to Steve Morse’s website for translating Russian to English https://stevemorse.org/russian/eng2rus.html

 

According to an article in Lost Russian Family blog:  https://lostrussianfamily.wordpress.com/2019/10/19/new-wwii-soviet-army-database-gives-faces-to-veterans/ the best way to use the database is:

Copy the name in the box on the top right that says  найти героя

Open each result link in a new window. If you don’t, the website requires you to restart the search.

Copy and paste all text into one of the translation services mentioned above.

 

There is also the opportunity to upload and add a photo. Directions are included at: https://foto.pamyat-naroda.ru/about

Re: In Search for DEUTSCH Antal

Judi Gyory Missel
 

Dear Amit,
Szegenyhaz Ter is a street address. Ter would be what we call a square.  According to the book, Jewish Budapest: Monuments, Rites, History
by Kinga Frojimovics, page 316, this street was part of District VII or Erzsébetváros and translates to "Poorhouse Square". This page is digitized on Google Books.

I found a death record for Antal on 6 May 1905. It says he was born in Ujpest and he was 48 years old when he died.

Unless you know otherwise, I think it is most likely to stand for Eretz Yisrael, meaning born in the land of  Israel.

Re: Aleph Yud - what does it mean?

Good Morning,

I would think it means "Eretz Israel" in Hebrew:
ארץ ישראל

Re: Aleph Yud - what does it mean?

David Lewin
 

In Ivrit we always have the " to show that the letters are an abbreviation - usually before the last letter of a string.  It does not aid the meaning.

Show me the original Hebrew document, maybe there are some more clues?

Taken out of context it is difficult to be certain but Alef-Yud can stand for
"Or Yehuda"
Or Yashar
Eilat
"Eino Yehudi" = is not a Jew
Eino Yachol = is unable
Eretz Yisrael

to name but a few

Dear brothers and sisters,


I appreciate every help. I applied for Sephardic citizenship online last September 2019 at FCJE.org for my certificate and waiting for approval. I've message them about my passport which is already expired last year, and I cannot get a new one because I need to submit to USCIS next month for my US citizenship. My brothers and I are happy to see our Sephardic family in Spain.  Every time that I heard killing Jews it makes me cry because it reminds me about my family who escaped from Spain. Thank you for your concern, and GOD bless!
