Reading gravestones #general

I forgot that Danny Kaye was Daniel Kaminski (for those old enough to
remember a great comedian and entertainer).

And there is also Ida, the Yiddish actress.

There was a Kaminski family in Sheffield listed between 1896 and 1900 -
I do not if later. Jeanette K was listed as a jeweller, Maurice K as a
Merchant, hardware and cuttlery dealer, and auctioneer, and Rosalie and
Esther with no listed occupation. VS

Dear Genners

Today, I have spent a few hours in an old cemetery in a suburb of Manchester
looking for, and finding, the gravestones of my maternal great-grandparents.
My grandmother was one of their 9 children all born in Europe. 8 came to
Manchester including, strangely enough, the five children of one of their sons
who was murdered in Europe.

On my great-grandfathers tombstone it was written that he was Iddle (Adokph)
Kaminsky the son of Nachamed (Nun, Chess, Mem, Yud, Daled). I am not familiar
with this name. Is anyone else?

His wife was the daygther of Moisha and her name was Mirat Rifka. I have
never heard of the name Mirat. I know there are many of you who understand
the origins of these names and I would like to hear more on Nachamed and
Mirat. Many thanks in anticipation.

The final 'dalet' is most likely a 'hey', which would make this name
"Nechemia", the name of a Biblical prophet.

"Marat" means "Mrs." in Hebrew.

Hello Warren, Iddele is an affectionate name for Yidel [ Yiddish] which
is the equivalent of Yehuda. A person is called Yidel but for religious
purposes he will be called Yehuda. Yiddel, Yudel, Yiddele,Yidl are all
variations of Yudel or Yidel.
Perhaps the word is Nechamis which will indicate the son of Nechama.
Mirat Rifka, Mira is a Yiddish name, example,Mirele Efros, in Yiddish
Literature. Mirat may be a derivative of Mire,Mira or Mirele dedpending
on the area. Good luck.
