Jewish MtDNA study published in June ("exciting, important") #dna

howard sachs <hfsachs@...>
 

Supplementing NYTimes article reported in May by Kitty
Munson, I note publication of the DNA based article
"Founding Mothers of Jewish Communities" at 70
American Journal of Human Genetics l411 (June 2002).
Subtitle is "Geographically Separated Jewish Groups
Were INDEPENDENTLY Founded by Very Few Female
Ancestors" (emphasis added). Jerusalem Post article
on June 16 quotes professor Karl Skorecki as
describing study as "very exciting" and "very
important". Post article notes "surprisingly
different genetic histories" for male founders of
Diaspora communities and female community founders.
It is said "the mothers' mitochondrial DNA seems to
indicate local Diaspora origin" for the women. This
contrasts with "data on the Y chromosome (that)
indicates that the males originated in the Middle
East."

Re: Looking for SIGAL #general

Alex Sigal asks about SIGAL family members in Argentina. A look-up in my
white pages CD gave 168 Sigal phones but a peek in
http://www.libreria-sigal.com/
will give Alex the postal address info to contact Libreria Sigal, a
traditional bookstore in Buenos Aires, and publisher too.

Libreria SIGAL is a referral point for Jewish interest books. Other Buenos
Aires SIGALs would probably buy their books there, and say they are SIGALs
too!.

http://www.masuah.org/editoriales.htm has the updated phone numbers. The
official Sigal bookstore website needs updating. Probably the eMail
reported here is "fresher" too.

And Alex .. your family came >from Vinnitza, Ukraine. A Buenos Aires friend
I met when other JewishGenners helped with her trip to her roots is leaving
Vinnitza today via Lviv on her way back to Buenos Aires. She will be in
Buenos Aires in a few days after visiting the family's origins - so maybe
she will have some tips for your research. If you are interested, I´ll ask
her and if it is OK I´ll forward you the contact info privately.

Hope this helps,

Cyrillic Vital Records Translation Request #general

Aaron Slotnik
 

Hello,

Thanks to JRI Poland, I've been able to get copies of several vital
records of individuals I may be related to. I've posted scanned versions
of these documents at the following locations:

1) http://www.geocities.com/ahslot/zlotnikmojzesdeath1868.jpg
2) http://www.geocities.com/ahslot/zlotnikhyndafrajdladeath1869.jpg

4) http://www.geocities.com/ahslot/zlotnikunknowndeath1877.jpg
5) http://www.geocities.com/ahslot/zlotnikrojzaittamarriage1875.jpg

I suggest copying and pasting the above links into a browser window rather
than clicking on them directly as this seems to cause problems >from some
email programs (you might get a "not available" message). The files are
kind of large, ranging between 150 kb and 400 kb, but I wanted them at
sufficient resolution to be as legible as possible. I would like an
extraction of all vital information >from these documents--names (and
relationships), dates, ages, locations, etc. The first record was
registered in Wyszogrod and the rest were >from Plock. Please respond to
me directly at aaronslotnik@hotmail.com. Thanks for your help!!

Coordinator needed for new Lodz biography translation project #lodz #poland

Seflaum@...
 

Dear Fellow Lodz Area Researchers:

I am proposing the establishment of a new project to translate the
approximately 300 Polish biographies of prominent Jews in "Stary Cmentarz
Zydowski w Lodzi" (The Old Cemetery in Lodz), published by the Jewish
community of Lodz in 1938. Please refer to this page for a description of the
book:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lodz/oldcem.htm

In a nutshell, this book contains the Lodz Chevra Kaddishah records of the
Old Lodz Cemetery, >from 1822 through 1922, with a separate section on Polish
biographies written by two prominent historians. It is the biographical
section that I propose we translate into English.

To begin this project, we will need a coordinator (or coordinators) who will
be in charge of an all-volunteer group. Once we have a coordinator in place,
he or she will be asking for volunteer translators. At this point, please
contact me *only* if you are interested in coordinating this project.

Here's an example of the amount of information contained in just one
average-sized biography:

Polish biography # 794 of Chaja Fajga Rabinowicz:

"Chaja Fajga RABINOWICZ, wife of the Przysucher rabbi Jerachmiel Jehuda
Meir, son of the Przysucher rabbi Jakob Icchak Elchanan, grandson of the
Przysucher rabbi Jerachmiel who again was the son of the famous Tsaddik
Jakob Icchak 'the Holy Jew of Przysucha'. Chawa (sic) Fajga's husband,
Meir RABINOWICZ, took over the rabbinate in his home town after the death
of his father in 1872. As the income of this rabbinate could not even
cover the most modest needs, the energetic Fajga R. started to trade in
manufaktura (fabrics), driving often to Lodz to buy merchandise. One day
she left for Lodz when she was 8 months pregnant. Because of the long and
arduous trip on a jolting cart Fajga R. miscarried and died a few days
later in Lodz. Her father Jakob Dawid KALISZ, the Rabbi of Mszczonow,
attended her funeral. Fajga R. left behind two daughters. One of them
married Rabbi Izrael Aron PADWA, who after the death of his father-in-law
Meir R. took over the rabbinate of Przysucha. Aron PADWA was the grandson
of the Kojdanower Rabbi Izrael Aron. The son of this marriage, Rabbi Jakob
Samuel today resides in Lodz and is known as the 'Tsaddik >from Koluszki'
('Der Koluszker rebe'), as he had lived in Koluszki for several years
before he came to Lodz. The second daughter married her uncle (mother's
brother), Jezajasz KALISZ."

Again, please contact me *only* if you are interested in coordinating this
project. Updates will be posted to this mailing list.

Thanks for the inquiry, but nothing sounds familiar. According to my
great-grandfather's 1928 death certificate >from Brooklyn, N.Y., his mother's
maiden name was Elka Smolen. She would probably have been born in the 1840s
and was >from Rietavas (Ritova) Lithuania. I believe if you check some of the
tax list entries for Rietavas and nearby communities Garzgdai (sp?) and
Plunge, you'll find lots of people named Zaks. Perhaps that's the same as
Sachs. Sorry not to be much help. Jim Kaye >from Westchester County, NY

Thanks for the inquiry, but nothing sounds familiar. According to my
great-grandfather's 1928 death certificate >from Brooklyn, N.Y., his mother's
maiden name was Elka Smolen. She would probably have been born in the 1840s
and was >from Rietavas (Ritova) Lithuania. I believe if you check some of the
tax list entries for Rietavas and nearby communities Garzgdai (sp?) and
