From website http://williesigler.com/jewish_sigler_name.htm From: "Anna Fricke" &ltagphp@@@@almanet.net&gt To: "'Willie and Jeanne Sigler'" &ltwjtjd@@@@bellsouth.net&gt Subject: Sigler Origins Date: Sat, 12 Jun 2004 09:22:06 -0500 X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook, Build 10.0.2627 Dear Cousin: I am sorry that I had to miss the Sigler reunion this year. I was out of the country for the first time in my life. I went to Israel for 12 days with a tour group of wonderful Christians. The reason that I am writing is to inform you that I was able to look up the Sigler name at Yad Vashem, which is a Holocaust museum that contains over two million names. They are adding to the museum daily. Anyway, you will be interested to know that there were thousands of Siglers annihilated in the Holocaust. That may explain why no one has been able to trace the name past Jacob Sigler in the United States. I was not able to stay near long enough to research any of them. I was able to see many of the Siglers were named Jacob, Sara, Rachel, Daniel, John, Levi, Benjamin, Enoch, Peter, Amos, etc. Since these names seem to run in the family, I find it very interesting that they are Jewish names. What I find more interesting is, I have done extensive research on my father's family and my husband's family and they do not use any of the traditional Jewish names. Their given names are Henrich, Hermann, Fredrick, Ralph, Herbert, Louis, Eduard, George, etc. There are virtually no Jewish names. That in itself is interesting, but coupled with the fact that Sigler is a well respected and honored name in Israel because it is a Jewish name is more than circumstantial. I asked our tour guide and driver about the Sigler name. They are both Jewish and both said that Sigler is a very important, well known, and respected name in Israel. We were not able to visit Beth Hatefutsoth which is in Tel Aviv. They have all of the genealogical records there. One of our group stayed on for another week to visit with a friend and I asked her to go to Tel Aviv and search both the genealogical and family name of Sigler. This organization is very thorough in their research. The reason for that is the country wants to find all of the Jewish peoples who were dispersed in the Diaspora, because they think that if all of the Jewish peoples make Allyah then the Messiah will come. When I get the information from Linda, I will send it on to you. Finally, if you would like to see many people who resemble the Sigler family, then go to Israel yourselves. I have never seen so many people who look like my Great Grandpa Sigler in my life. I tried to get pictures of all of them, but we went too fast to get too many. If I had the money, I would return to the country on a genealogy tour. Love, Anna Fricke

MANY JEWISH FAMILY NAMES CAN BE TRACED TO SEVERAL SOURCES.

SIGLER IS A VARIANTR OF SIEGLER.

LITERALLY "SEALER" IN GERMAN, SIEGLER AND ITS VARIANTS COULD BE OCCUPATIONAL NAMES OF ENGRAVERS OF SEALS, A WIDESPREAD OCCUPATION FOR JEWS IN THE 18TH CENTURY IN CENTRAL EUROPE.

HOWEVER, THESE JEWISH FAMILY NAMES ARE USUALLY BASED ON SEGAL, AN ABBREVIATION OF THE HEBREW "SEGAN-LEVIYYAH", WHICH MEANS "PRINCE OF THE LEVITES" OR "ASSISTANT OF THE HIGH PRIEST", SEGAL WAS ORIGINALLY A FUNCTION AND TITLE WHICH BECAME A FAMILY NAME.

CHANGES IN VOCALIZATION AND THE TREND OF ADJUSTING TO THE LANGUAGES OF THE ETHNIC MAJORITIES AMONG WHOM JEWS WERE LIVING IN THE DIASPORA, PRODUCED VARIANTS SUCH AS SAGAL AND SIGAL BUT ALSO SEGEL AND SIEGEL ("SAIL" AND "SEAL" IN GERMAN), THE FRENCH SEGALOT (DERIVED FROM THE POLISH/GERMAN SEGALOVITZ) AND THE HUNGARIAN AND POLISH SZEGAL. A REMARKABLE COMBINATION IS REPRESENTED BY THE COMPOUND SEGLERSIGLER ("SAILOR-SEALER" IN GERMAN), COMPRISING TWO DERIVATIVES OF SEGAL. APPARENTLY "MEANINGLESS" NAMES IN THIS GROUP SUCH AS ZIEGELBAUM (IN GERMAN "BRICK TREE"),ZYGELBERG (AT FIRST SIGHT AN UNUSUAL SPELLING OF THE GERMAN ZIEGELBERG, THAT IS "BRICK MOUNTAIN"), AND SEGELBAUM (IN GERMAN "SAIL TREE"), ACTUALLY VEIL SIGNIFICANT SYMBOLS DEEPLY EMBEDDED IN JEWISH TRADITION.

IN THE LATE 19TH CENTURY, SIGLER IS RECORDED AS A JEWISH FAMILY NAME IN BRAZIL WITH RUMANIAN-BORN MANASE SIGLER.
