Searching for the daughter of Leo Albert KOENIGSBERGER and Kaetchen WEISS KOENIGSBERGER in Sao Paulo #general

Judith Elam
 

I am searching for the daughter of Leo Albert KOENIGSBERGER (KONIGSBERGER with "u"
umlaut) and Kaetchen WEISS KOENIGSBERGER. She was probably born between 1899 and
1912 - in Berlin. Her mother died in 1912 in Berlin and her father died at
Theresienstadt in 1942. Her parents lived at Meinekestrasse 5, Charlottenburg.

I have received information that this daughter was married and had 2 children. In
1938 the family emigrated to Sao Paulo, Brazil. This office in Berlin has no
further information.

I know it is difficult to find someone with no name or date of birth. All I know is
her maiden name was KOENIGSBERGER. I have searched on Ancestry and Jewishgen.

Can someone please tell me how I could find this family in Sao Paulo?

Being ">from the Cohens" may not necessarily mean your family's surname was Cohen
before it was Queen. It may mean merely that your ancestry traces back to Aaron,
brother of Moses. Aaron became the first Israelite high priest, and all his male
children and all their descendents in perpetuity were designated to be priests in
the Jewish religion. These male descendents were and are known as Kohens and many
but not all took the surname "Cohen" and its variant spellings.

JGSGW, Rockville, Maryland, March 7, Our Heritage and Our Health #dna

Jeff Miller
 

Full Program Title: Whatever you wanted to know about Ashkenazi Jewish
diseases; a program about our heritage and our health
Location: B'nai Israel, 6301 Montrose Road, Rockville, MD 20852-4120
Date and Times: March 7
1:00 PM Schmooze; 1:30 PM - Business Meeting and Announcements
2:00 PM - Program

Speaker: Gary S. Frohlich, MS, CGC

Program Objectives:
The purpose of this program is to provide up-to-date information on the
genetic conditions which occur more frequently in Jews of Ashkenazi descent.

Each of these disorders can be devastating, not only to those affected, but
to the families involved. This workshop will explore the diagnosis,
management, and treatment of all eleven of the Ashkenazi Jewish Genetic
Conditions with a focus on the most common Jewish Genetic disorder - Gaucher
disease. More than 9 out of 10 Jewish Americans are unaware of Gaucher
disease. Approximately one in 450 people may have Gaucher, and the carrier
rate is approximately 1 in 14. Gaucher disease is two and a half times more
common that Tay-Sachs.

The objectives of the workshop are as follows:
1. To learn about "Founder Effect" among the Ashkenazim.
2. To gain knowledge about the eleven genetic conditions among the
Ashkenazim.
3. To understand the signs and symptoms of Gaucher disease.

Gary Frohlich is Senior Medical Affairs Liaison and Certified Genetics
Counselor for Genzyme Therapeutics. Mr. Frohlich has been a genetic
counselor over 35 years and has seen over 26 thousand couples for genetic
counseling. He is a published author or both scientific articles as well
as pamphlets on Ashkenazi Jewish Diseases.

Cost for Program: Free to members of JGSGW. Non-members/visitors are welcome
to attend for a $5.00 fee. If a guest joins JGSGW the fee will be applied
toward the membership dues. Non-members may attend one meeting per year free
- see certificate on the Current Programs page of the JGSGW website

surname QUEEN/COHEN #general

Lorna.Brophy@...
 

Good Day,

I am researching my paternal family with the surname Queen, which I am led to
believe was changed >from Cohen. My paternal grandfather William was born between
1917 - 1920 and died in 1979. I do not have any other information apart from
being told that we are >from the Cohens. I am not sure when or why our surname was
changed. My grandparents lived in Glasgow Scotland.

Any assistance would be most appreciated.

Kindest regards
Lorna Queen

Etsi, Sephardi Genealogical and Historical review, issue 47 #general

Philip Abensur <laurphil@...>
 

Issue 47 of Etsi, the Sephardi Historical and Genealocal Review has just been sent
to the subscribers. This is the last issue to be published, closing a 12 years long
publication. Most previous issues remain available at special discount prices.
This issue includes a list of 552 graduates of the Alliance Israelite Universelle
school of Tetuan (Morocco) between 1862 and 1879. The Alliance school of Tetuan was
the first one to be opened, in 1862. The list gives, for each pupil, the first
name, last name, occupation and place of residence in 1879. It is an invaluable
source of information about the Jewish names of Tetuan as well as about the
important emigration of the Jews of Tetuan in the second half of the 19th century,
especially to Algeria, Spain or Brazil. For instance, the most frequent last names
found are Levy (20 pupils), Cohen (18), Bentolila, Hatchuel (14),
Benarrosh/Benarroche, Benzaquen, Israel (13), Acriche/Hacriche (12), Coriat, Nahon
(11), Benchimol and Bentata (10). Two other articles point out websites giving
information about the Jewish cemeteries of Tangier (Morocco) and Algier (Algeria).
As usual, all the articles are summarized in English and in Judeo-Spanish.

Where should I do my DNA test and which tests? #dna

Fred Zimmak <Fred.Zimmak@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am very new in researching ancestor with help of DNA. I tried to read
about this but find it complicated. I want a brief understanding, but would
not want to be an expert in this area.

I would like to do a DNA test but become confused of the different test that
different companies have. I would like to search both on maternal and
paternal line. I also am interested >from where my ancestors originally came
from, the different groups that I read about. I have both Jewish and
Christian ancestors. On my mother's side, both on the Christian and Jewish
part, there are male decedents who I also would like to use to trace the
paternal line there. (if they agree to do this of course.)

from beginning I wanted to this at Ancestry and use their database for
this. But I realized that Jewishgen also have such a offer. In Ancestry
there is a function to transfer DNA test >from other companies. How does this
match the test >from Jewishgen? And can I transfer several DNA tests to
Ancestry?

Wish tests and which company would you recommend me to do? Maybe Jewishgen
do not recommend a specific Company?

Best regards

SEVERE DELAY IN INFORMATION/COPIES FROM MA8 POST - VIENNA, AUSTRIA #austria-czech

Joyce Eastman
 

In January 2009 I sent an e-mail request to 'post@...' for
copies of pages >from the Lehmann's Addressbuch for those with the surname of
HELFER in 1930 and 1942, as well any other information on HELFER residents
in Vienna, Austria >from 1900-1942, who might possibly be related to my
paternal grandmother Sime Bruche WILDER (nee HELFER)born in Brody, Poland.

About 2 or 3 weeks later I received an answer >from Katharina Smola >from that
office asking for my mailing address. To date nothing has been received
from them. I followed up twice, and on my second try (most recently in
January 2010) was told that they receive about 1,000+ requests for
information a month and that I would be answered in turn. Also, that they
strive to provide requested information within a 2 month period - or at
least a follow up reply. It is hard for me to believe that it would take
them over a year to provide me with this information, once they asked for my
mailing address.

Has anyone else had this type of experience with this Department in Vienna
(MA8 Post)? If so, how was it resolved? I have written to this Department
in years past, and never have I waited this long for any copies of documents
or information.

What is "rekte" ? #austria-czech

haases@...
 

Hello to everyone,

I remember that a few month ago, when I was browsing through tons of names
in conjunction with my eastern European ancestors, I came across several
instances where I found names listed as (for example): "Gutl (umlaut) rekte
Netty"

Does anybody know what the significance of the word "rekte" is in the above
context?

Also, does anyone happen to have a thought as to where my ancestral surnames
of "SPITZKOPF" and/or "HAAS" might have originated

TIA
