Re: Children named after their living parents #general

I've seen it a handful of times in some of the small villages in that area. Twice among relatives of mine (surname was Szklarczyk).

I don't have any evidence to suggest that they were Sephardim or Yekkes.

More likely, these are the "official" Polish document names, and not their "lashon kodesh" (Hebrew) names, which would likely be different.

Also: if somebody is named "Moshe Abram" and another child is called "Moshe Herz" (just for example), those aren't considered to be the same name.

Nobody has mentioned that Western European Ashkenazi name children for living people too. The same way Sephardim name for grandparents first, then other relatives. First son is named for the father's father, second son is named for the mother's father, same with girls.

Jews who left Eastern Europe, of course, continued to name only for dead relatives often.

Children certainly did die from measles, and it would have been very unlikely to have been misdiagnosed flu, as measles has some distinct hallmarks.

NYC Voter Lists includes Children #general #usa

Paul Blumstein
 

I found it odd that the NYC voter lists includes children. I.e., those not old enough to vote.

Initially, I thought I was seeing people with the same name as my relatives but I've seen too many for this to be true.

Anyone know why these voter lists contained the names of children?

Sorry but I think this enquiry is too full of little known abbreviations.  Please take the time necessary to ensure your meaning is clear so that nobody else has to waste their time trying to work out what is meant.


Looking for family in Haifa #israel

brigitte attal
 

Hello
I heard from a cousin that survivors of our family emigrated to Israël in the 50/60 in Haifa.
Their names are Ita born Halbersztadt and Jehuda Leib Ejger from Lublin. They had no children. How can I search about them ?
Maybe there is a tomb in a cemetery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is typical of patronymic naming as occurred in some countries such as Netherlands (Holland) where surnames generally did not come into existence until 1811 by decree of Napoleon. Further, female babies may have been named after a male relative by feminising the name, adding letters such as "je" to the end of the male name. For instance Pieter(Pijter)/Piet becomes female Pietje (modern form is Petra).

 

I am Sephardic and it is an accepted custom to name new born babies for living relatives. Generally if the first born is a boy he will be named after his paternal grandfather. If the second child is a girl she will be named after her paternal grandmother. If there is another boy he will be named after his maternal grandfather and another girl will be named after her maternal grandmother. After that it is up to the parents who they may choose to honor with names of any additional children.

As far as LDS goes you need to create an account on FamilySearch and then you can view their catalogue.

Ina Getzoff explained the "pecking order" in regards to naming after living relatives. This is very common in Italy where my husband's paternal side originates. Makes genealogy a bit confusing. 


Re: #poland - Searching for HALLAY, ZAGON and DIMANSKY (Ortelsburg) #poland

Karen <kgschneider@...>
 

Ze'ev, I see the links from my first response did not transfer the actual records in the attachments.
But I was able to copy and scan the attached images for you. 
You can still access the marriage record with the hyperlinks to the individuals from any of the first attachments by registering with Family Search,
clicking on the Record tab and then inputting the name Maria Hallaij into the search function.
I am still not sure these are the people you are searching for but the names seem very similar in so many ways.

Good luck, 
Karen Schneider
