30336 Translation - Polish

12/11/2013 4:36 PM I would like to get a translation of the second entry on the page (82) for my great-grandfather Nathan (Nussen) Richler (Reichler). I'm also trying to determine what all of the columns are - some I've figured out as father/mother and dates but there seems to be a lot of text that I can't figure out.

30338 Interpretation

12/11/2013 4:36 PM I would be grateful for help in (1) interpreting the place of origin of the husband (top line), in this image and (2) the reference to "Poland, R." What does the "R" signify? The image is taken from the 1871 England Census. The wife comes from Kutno as evidenced by the use of the word "Kutner," - someone from Kutno. Thank you in advance for assisting me in identifying the places of origin of these two individuals. Rand H. Fishbein, Ph.D. (fishnet@pipeline.com) View the post with its 5 responses

30316 Sharing Document

12/11/2013 4:33 PM The name Magnus means "great". The Hebrew name Gedaliah (ged-dahl-YAH) mens "God is great." It was the name last governor of Judea, appointed by Babylon,s Nebuchadnezzar after the destruction of the first Temple. Gadaliah was given control of Judea and of the remnants of the Jewish nation who were not exiled. Gadaliah encouraged the people to cultivate the fields and the vineyards of the holy Land and to serve God properly. When those who fled to neigthboring countreies during the Temple,s destruction heard of Gedaliah.s appointment ,they returned to Judea and were warmly welcomed by him. Gedaliah was assassinated on the holy day of Rosh Hashana, and his death is commemorated with fasting on the third of the Hebrew month of Tishrei. His story is recorded in II Kings 25 and Jeremiah 40-41. Those with the Hebrew name Gedaliah have the capacity to become great leaders in their community, to direct peoplle,s hearts towards Israel, and to demonstrate to others that " God is great".
