I did not know the statistic below about Denmark; thank you. Quite a

because of popular resistance to German efforts at departation.

Denmark was the only country to actively resist the Nazi attempt to deport

Manchester, Eng. Rabbi whose mother was a GAISINSKY from Stavishche #general

Lisa
 

I am searching for a rabbi and his family >from Manchester, England (or some
say London) whose mother's maiden name was GAISINSKY / HAISINSKY and whose
maternal grandfather was Rabbi Yitzhak Avraham Gaisinsky >from Stavishche,
Ukraine. The younger rabbi settled in Manchester as a youngster in the early
1920's (or possibly earlier) and although I am uncertain of his name there is
a significant chance that it could be one of the following surnames: TANICKI,
CZARNE, FISHEL or SPEKTOR. The Manchester rabbi may have been born in a town
outside of Stavishche, as his mother and aunts probably married into other
rabbinical families >from nearby shtetls. I am researching the grandfather of
the Manchester rabbi and I am assisting a friend who is related to him who would
like to discover more about this lost wing in his family which settled in
England.

If anyone can help please respond privately.
Many thanks

Old photos of non-relations #general

I have old photos of my grandfather. Many include friends >from college

need to preserve them, but I don't want to discard them either.
Suggestions?

Hello everyone,

I would have to agree with Frank. I just came back >from Belarus and I had an
amazing experience visiting the shtetls my family came from. Just walking
the streets of the shtetls takes you to a different world and understand the
region, the way of life, the living conditions all takes you back a century
and helps you understand why your ancesters left. I highly recommend the
trip and will be sending out a description of my experiences after the
holidays. I would also suggest that you get in touch with Yuri Dorn, the
director of the Religious Communities of Belarus, based in Minsk, who can
help you with your trip. My amazing trip could not have been possible
without him. When I send out my full description, everyone will understand.

All the best,

I don't know how many there are but scan them and upload them onto an
Internet album, and then you can provide the link to anyone you want to
look at it - that is if you don't want to actually make it public.

Then you can store them away and also salve your conscience that you
are not hiding them away for noone to see.

From: "Roni S. Liebowitz" <roni19@optonline.net>

Recently Joyce Field announced several new databases that are now
available
for searching on JewishGen. I thought it would be a good time to review
those of high interest to researchers of Lodz and the surrounding areas in
the Piotrkow Gubernia. Keep in mind that several people >from other places
around the country were forcibly transported to the Lodz Ghetto and may be
listed in one these databases.

* "Lodz Transports to the Chelmno Extermination Camp"
Names of 7,168 individuals >from Lodz who were transferred to the death
camp
at Chelmno, June-August 1944.

* "Lodz Ghetto Residents Database"
A record of the 240,000 inhabitants of the Lodz Ghetto. Entries may
include
Surname, Maiden name (occasionally),
Given name, Sex, Date of birth, Occupation (usually in German, also in
Polish), Ghetto address, Apartment number, and
Notes. This last section may include previous address or town, date of
death or deportation (and possibly the transport number).

* Lodz Ghetto Hospital Illness Records"
Entries include over 5,600 persons with contagious diseases in hospitals
in
the Lodz Ghetto, Aug-Dec 1940.

* "Lodz Ghetto Hospital Deaths"
There are over 14,000 deaths recorded in hospitals in the Lodz Ghetto, Nov
1941 thru Jun 1944.

For other databases related to the Holocaust, see:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/

* "Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-Poland)" is a non-profit,
independent organization.
An amazing searchable database that contains over two and a half million
indices to records >from more than 350 Polish towns. This is a must for
searching Jewish birth, marriage, and death indices of the 19th century
records >from current and former territories of Poland. Where such records
are available, they may include towns that are now part of Lithuania,
Ukraine and Belarus. This also includes The 1929 Polish Business
Directory
Project database. http://www.jri-poland.org

Detailed explanations about each of these databases are available on the
sites. As eager as you may be to jump right in and search the databases,
the results will be much more meaningful and lead to better understanding

Strictly Male vs. Female Lines #dna

Moshe & Esther Davis <davis@...>
 

Would it be possible to clarify the following?

The quotes are >from either the JG or FTDNA websites:

"Y-DNA strictly checks the paternal line, with no influence of any
females along that line... A single test allows you to verify if 2
males are related".

"mtDNA: ...Note that the mtDNA strictly checks the maternal line,
with no influence of any males along that line."

Does this mean to say that:

(1) a male descendant of, say, a female cousin, will not be
detected at all using the Y chromosome test?

(2) a descendant of, say, a male cousin, will not be detected at all
if using the mitochondrial DNA test?
