When I was born I was given a “Hebrew Name,” as are many Jews. However mine, Jousef Meier, I was told, was not simply an alliterative consonant match between first and last names in English, or the name of a commemorated relative, as is the custom among European Americans of the Jewish faith.
As I matured I learned that I was given an honored name in my mother’s father’s family, e.g. Jousef Meier, unrelated to my names in English, which was previoously the name of my great grandfather. Notably mI learned that my having this name was a guarded secret in my generation, which I was told was why other males in my generation were called Joel, Joe, etc. and other varients of “Joe” in English, but I was not. My name was disguised until I was mature enough to understand that it in fact was a distinguished title among living relatives who were union leaders, diplomats, and other notable persons.
Notably my mother is ethnically “mixed,” as I was told, and was considered African American throughout her life, although her family considered their ethnicicity to be related to non-European “Eastern” or trtibal Jews of non”judean” origination. But they did noit know what this really meant. I have also been told that I may be historically connected to the tribe of Joseph. (this group is now known to exist in Eastern frontiers along the “khyber Pass, in Afghanistan and Pakistan.) People of this group, whom I’ve noiw seen in photos and video images look like me!
Notably too the name suggests reincarnatiof this since Meier means “manifest” and also by the quirks of semetic languages, also Visier– which was the title of Jousef son of Yacov, who became the Viceroy of Egypt about 1500 years BC. This was discussed in a PBS feature noting that OMIER JOSEPH was written on a wall in Luxor where This Joseph’s family probably lived when this namesake invited his gather and brothers to live in his adopted country.
Interestingly I have another contemporary relative, Jose Broner, who lived in Argentina. in Like many wealthy and successful icons in my mother’s family, he was a former Labor Champion, who became President Juan Peron’s Minister of the Economy. His first name was Jose,and his last name was a latinized version of my grandmother’s last name which was BROWN in this country. Amazingly his career history followed
the path of the original Joseph.
So naturally I am very eager to learn If I ccan really trace my roots back to this very elegant Biblical family. I know much of this will be very difficult to trace throurgh ordinary commercial “ancestry” services; and I am very sincerely hopeful to have your researchers help me find out if I really have this amazing “destiny” as it6 seems to have been charted by my name. Notably some prominant astrologers have suggested that I have “expansive” signs and configurations also.
So I’m very hopeful that your program could shed some light on all this.
