DNA testing with FamilyTreeDNA #germany

Janet Akaha <Akaha@...>
 

Yesterday I posted information on DNA testing with FamilyTreeDNA.
Since then I have been inundated with emails >from people who are
interested in testing. They have a promotional price right now for a
Y chromosome-37 marker test PLUS the mtDNA (maternal DNA) test for
only $119. The normal cost of these two tests is $248. This price is
ONLY available if you join a group.

After sending links to many people for both the German Jewish Project
and also to the Jewish Heritage DNA project, I just learned that the
special promotion ends TOMORROW. (Or at least you have to sign up for
a test and pay by June 30th).

I seem to be unable to post links to these groups in this post, but if
you contact me, I would be happy to pass them along.

LPC #general

Gayle Schlissel Riley
 

Thank all of you, who provide me with answer. I did look it up when
I thought about it. Funny he had a home in Palestine and had other
family in Chicago, NYC and Philly. 2 of the family was able to stay
and only 1 was sent back. They spent 3 days in the Hospital.
Interesting..

Naming patterns #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Michael asked:
"...were children ever named after deceased relatives of the
opposite sex? .... Was anything like this done earlier in the 20th
Century and before? Could my paternal grandfather, born in 1898,
have been named after his paternal grandmother?"

My uncle Reginald born about 1907 was clearly named after his
grandmother, Regina. The next son, Milton, was named after a
grandfather, Michael. Third son, Harold, was probably named after
the other grandmother, Hannah. And my mother, Evelyn, was probably
named after several male relatives named Elias.

Not exactly the timeframe you are looking for but in the 1930s every
building was photographed in Manhattan. The photos are all available
at the NYC Municipal Archives. They were microfilmed and you can see
them all at the Archives and printout copies or order originals.

Re: Bucharest to Bombay to New York? #general

Peter Lebensold
 

Hi Sheri:

Just a guess, but in 1941, there was already a war on in
Western Europe (and The Battle of the Atlantic was fully underway,
with U-boats sinking even "neutral" - i.e. U.S. - ships), whereas
war in the Pacific - involving the U.S. - did not break out until
Pearl Harbor, Dec 7 1941. It would have seemed by far the safest route.

Take a look, for instance, at this WWII timeline:

Felik as a Jewish first name (Yiddish?) #general

Avigdor Ben-Dov <a.bendov@...>
 

In my genealogy searches, I found the name Felik (transliterated >from
the Hebrew) which could, perhaps, be also pronounced Pelek.
The name does not seem to fit common first names. Is this like Felix?
I don't think this is a common Polish name either. Any suggestions?
Perhaps this name is familiar to the List?

Reference: Felik ben (son of) Mordechai Aharon and Sarah SHOSTAK
from the town of Sokoly.

Naming... Thanks. #general

Michael Sklaroff
 

Thanks to all who responded to my query about baby boys and girls
being named after deceased relatives of the opposite sex. All
said, "Yes, it happened." [NB: not a direct quote.]

Barbara's post to the forum, below, encourages me to believe that
my grandfather, Meyer, born in 1898, may very well have been named
after his grandmother, Miriam.
