Hello everyone, especially Tina. It has been some time since last posting any information regarding the Comer family. Here is some information a good friend has posted me. I have no idea if it will help in finding the family in Poland. I am assured that the family was of Jewish Religion in Whitechapel, London. Best regards Wendy ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I see you haven't been on rootschat for while. Fingers crossed that you see this.
Something made me take another look at your Comer family.
The marriage registers for the Great Synagogue include that 1854 wedding.
5 July 1854 Ellis Comer (Hebrew name: Eli son of Yechiel Mikal) Hannah Sander (HN: Chana Sarah daughter of Tzvi)
I am not aware of any connection between the Hebrew name Yechiel Mikal and the securalized name Isaac (Yitschak in Hebrew).
Further investigation revealed an interesting derivation for the name Comer.
The documented Jewish surname Komer or Komar is Polish for a gnat or mosquito and is a translation of the Yiddish word Muk, which was a shortened pet form for the name ... ... Yechiel Mikal!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
