Re: Jewish Surnames in Galicia
- Decline of 18th century was hump for jewish onomastics
in Galicia. Emperor Josef II Habsburg, has issued regulation in year
1787, on which force, own whole jewish population should
descents and surnames constant. If did not have
jews of surnames such, it belonged to transmit them.
Austrian officers were framers of that new personal names.
It appoint special officer commissions in this purpose.
So, all jewish surnames were transmitted in this time rise of
ingenuity of bureaucrat.
Anyway, mechanical hand out them jews to manner completely and
accidental. It could be polish surname typically, however,
it use german forms most often.
This problem is with Jews, that did not have they long
surnames. Constant surnames have forced on them Austrians,
through "Izraelickie Ksiegi Metrykalne" and there it belongs to
search, problem in it that they awfully has behaved not enough.
One note finally, surname was diabolic "lo dawek beemunato,
polish - goj" invention for orthodox Jew, it treated which as
everything that "gojowskie".
Frequent changes from there too and surnames and spelling .
It caused many commotions, perhaps, anyway, it walked about it.
My friends, which from year from tombstones
research inscription ascertain that, several has surnames on
several thousands tombstones only and there are modern Jews
always ( attorney at law, physicians ).
