Inheritance vs. Testing #dna

Danielle James <daniandw@...>
 

Can someone please explain if a female can trace female DNA from
both father and mother lineage? I have been told that females can
only trace through their mother's line.

As my mother was non-Jewish and my father Jewish (both parents) what
would my situation be if I wished a DNA tracing. Would it show any
of the "Jewish" DNA?

Thank you

Danielle James

In going through the files at Ellis Island, we have discovered the listings
for my paternal grandmother, Chana Ukopnik, my father, my aunt, and,
probably another uncle of mine, grouped with them, although the spelling of
his town of orogin is similar but spelled differently, and we all thought
that uncle had arrived in the U.S. a few years earlier. We had always been
told they came >from Kulchin, Ukraine. However, these documents state they
came >from Kulczyn, POLAND. I know the borders shifted in many, if not most,
parts of Europe, but this was news to me! I finally had located a Kulchin in
the Volyn gubernia, which is an area those long-gone relatives had
mentioned, although they claimed to be >from "Near Kiev". Now I'm very
confused. Can anyone out there give me any assistance?

Urgent Request From Yad Vashem #belarus

Rachelle Berliner <rlberliner@...>
 

Attention All Jewishgenners who have found their ascendants to be Holocaust
victims but not listed on Yad Vashem. The first line of this request says it
all. Rachelle Berliner

Let no Holocaust Victim be Forgotten

It is extremely important that we do not allow the Nazis to obliterate the
memory of those they and their cohorts murdered. As you will see below, half
of the six million have been remembered at Yad Vashem. But that means that
three million are still missing.

Please take the time to make certain that each and every members of your
family who perished during the Shoah are recorded at Yad Vashem. You can
access their website and do your own search. The urgency of the matter is
that 60 years after the Shoah ended, those who remember our brothers and
sisters who were killed are becoming fewer and fewer.
New Community Outreach Guide For Holocaust Remembrance
Let no Holocaust Victim be Forgotten
Dear Friends,
Yad Vashem invites you to join the historic mission of the Jewish people to
memorialize every individual Jew who perished in the Holocaust through the
collection of the ultimate representation of their identity: their names. To
date, half of the six million victims have been recorded in the Central
Database of Shoah Victims’ Names (www.yadvashem.org), where one may access
their brief histories and, when available, their photographs, and submit
additional names online.
Millions of victims may be forgotten forever, unless we recover their names
today.
We are pleased to offer a new online community outreach guide to initiate
local Names Recovery Campaigns. Packed with valuable resources and
materials, this free guide will enable Jewish communities to plan and
implement meaningful memorial programs, names collection events and related
activities around Yom Hashoah - Israel’s national Holocaust Remembrance Day
(this year, 25 April) and other significant dates in the Jewish calendar,
such as 10th Tevet, 17th Tammuz, 9th Av, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
The guide is designed for use either by an individual or group, such as a
synagogue, community center, welfare agency, survivor and next generation
group, university or school. You can use it to call upon members of your
community or organization to complete a “Page of Testimony” for each
unregistered victim, or to volunteer to assist others with this urgent task.
To access the Community Outreach Guide visit:

Re: Response to Translation on Galati Death Record #romania

To Rom-Sig members:

Thank you all for your prompt reply to my query re the English
translation of DOB information:

< VIRSTA - 100 ANI> The concensus is that the information indicated
the deceased was aged 100 years.

I was also cautioned by one or two replies that this is not to be
taken too literally - but I have sufficient information to establish
that she could have been at least 90+ and on her way to 100!! Truly
remarkable for that time and place.

For all of you who asked how I obtained this Record, this is the result
of my snail mail inquiry to the Romanian Archives in Bucaresti, which
was forwarded to the Galati Registrar's office and the results were
forwarded to the Romanian Consulate in Los Angeles California. The fee
was $30. >from the date of my original letter to the receipt of the
document -Sept to Feb.
it took 5 months. I was very pleased with the manner in which this was
processed. I was kept informed throughout the process.

Again, thanks again, for your wonderful support and sharing of
knowledge!

Shalom,

I am wondering how to continue searching any info. on my Uncle and
Family that disappeared in Danzig.

My name is Moshe Yaakobi, and my fathers name was Shmuel Aharon
JAKOBOWITZ, who was born in Bendjin. He emigrated to New York,
where I was born. I immigrated to Israel-left the New York
during February 1949.
My father had a brother Roman JAKOBOWITZ who, with his family,
were living in Danzig before and around 1932. How much before I
do not know. He had a barber's shop in Bytom(Beuthen) before
moving to Danzig. In Danzig he had a barber's shop, and the
last we heard of him was on Jan. 25 1932. One can only wonder
what happened to him, and his family!!!

I now live in Ness Ziona, a small city between Rishon le Ziona

I was always told that the Lippmann name ( also Lieb, Loeb and Liebman) was a
derivative of Levi. My mother's branch originated >from the Gunzenhausen area
of Middle Franconia, Germany. There is a book "Our Lippmann Family" by the
late Kurt E.B. Lippmann, ISBN 0 646 27973 4 Melbourne 1995. Kurt wrote a lot
about the German Lippmanns going back to 1776. If any Lippmann descendant
thinks they might be related, try checking the Family Tree of the Jewish People
