Y and mt haplogroup mismatch #dna

Martin Davis (com)
 

Alex Miller's question about the speed of mutation of Y-DNA and mtDNA, using
a pre Columbian Native American example, is an novel pathway into Jewish DNA
issues. He asked, in reference to the Native Americans DNA research
findings: "...Does that mean that the mtDNA mutates faster, or these guys
got their women by mail order >from another continent?".

An accessible reference for Native American DNA research is to be found at
http://www.genetics.org/cgi/content/abstract/130/1/153 and indicates that
Native American mitochondrial DNA were founded by two independent
migrations. So nothing to do with speed of mutation (mtDNA has a much slower
mutation rate).

A more conventional path into the subject of Jewish DNA could be via the
Wiki page Genetic Studies on Jews to be found at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_studies_on_Jews .

Too many with same name - need help sorting out who is who #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

After years of trying, I am wondering if someone might be able to help sort some
information out for or with me. I am trying to connect a Morris and a Charles
GINCIG/GINZIG living in New York City to my family.

The problem is that that I have come across at least 6 Charles Ginzigs and
3 Morris Ginzig/Gincigs located in New York City and its boroughs during the
same time period with a Morris and a Charles, both involved in the diamond or
jeweler business but no other information (date of birth/death, family members
etc available) so haven't been able to verify they are the right ones.
(Note: Family stories say we had a relative in NYC or Chesapeake Bay NY that was
a jeweler who never married and so a relative >from California traveled to New
York and received an inheritance. This has been handed down so details are
probably fuzzy at best. It might be possible that he just didn't have any
descendants.)

What information I do have:
An article >from the New York Sun dated Monday December 10, 1928 mentioning a
jewelry store "Gincig & Siegel, Inc" located at 48 West Forty-eight St.

I believe the Gincig in "Gincig & Siegel is Morris Gincig (also found as Ginzig
and other spellings) b. August 1967 in either Krakow, Austria or New York City -
parents born Germany (census information). He was a jeweler and married Julia
(nee REINHEIMER) June 8, 1897 in Manhattan. A death notice has him passing March
30, 1950 but doesn't not mention any children but does mention Julia. His birth
certificate lists parents as Charles and Rose (nee Mincey) Gincig.

Charles Gincig was born Abt. 1835 in Austria (German speaking), and died Unknown
probably in New York City, NY. He married Rosa MEIZEL. She was born Abt. 1837
in Austria (German speaking), and died Unknown in probably New York City, NY.
These names >from Son William's birth certificate. William was b. July 7, 1875
New York City, NY d. February 10, 1936 Los Angeles, Ca. William's year of birth
varies >from 1873-1876 on his children's birth certificates. William is my
Great-Grandfather.

Are these the same persons as above?:
1880 New York Census - Charles Ginzig b. abt 1835 (Austria German speaking;
necktie maker) - Wife Rachel b. about 1837 and sons Bernard b. abt 1859 Germany,
John b. abt 1862 Germany, Morris b. abt 1866 Germany, and William b. 1876 NYC.

What information I have that I don't believe is for my Charles Gincig/Ginzig:
Charles Ginzig 1872 113 Division St, NYC Peddler
Charles Ginzig 40 Delancy St New York City 1878 Laborer aka Charles Ginsig:
Naturalized 1876 New York City. Nationality: Austria. Address: 40 Delancy St?
Charles Ginzig 5 Allen New York City - tailor 1886; Necktie Maker 1880
Charles Ginzig b. Oct. 1834 Germany; married Henrietta. 1900 Day Laborer Cigar
Roller 1910. State of Iowa Census.
Charles Ginzig b. about 1833 Poland d. August 13, 1908 Manhattan NY married
Rosalia ? b. about 1835 in Poland. d. March 28, 1902 Manhattan, NY. Source: 1870
census. Is he Kalman Guntzig/Gincig married to Rajzla Muntzer found in Poland
Index Jewishgen?

Census workers many times wrote what they heard, people used different names,
and then throw in the confusion of Krakow belonging to Austria, Poland and
Galicia with its citizens speaking either Polish, German or Yiddish in U.S.
censuses and you can see why I'm crying out for help!!

Here's hoping someone is better at this then I am,

How to find the cemetery for a Boston 1900 death? #general

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I've found a 1900 record of the death of a person in Boston. The
record doesn't indicate the actual cemetery, only the city where the
person was buried, i.e. Boston. I've searched the JCAM database
(http://www.jcam.org/), findagrave.com, and jewishgen.org, but the
person is not listed in any of those databases. Unfortunately any other
relatives of this person, died decades later, so they were probably
buried in different cemeteries. Does anyone have any suggestions of
what else I might try (besides, of course, looking through every Boston
Jewish cemetery that have burials >from that time period)? Thanks very
much.

Herman NEUMAN(N) #austria-czech

Dana Dimitriu
 

Hello all,

I am trying to find out what happened to Herman NEUMANN, born 5 March 1917 in Vienna, Austria.
His parents: Joseph NEUMANN, born 1868, >from Husiatyn, Galicia; Hermine Auguste ?, born around 1874
Perhaps someone in this list has such a name in their tree? or has heard anything about him? or even known him?

The NEUMANN family apparently moved to Karlsbad in the late 20s / early 30s.
I have been able to track Joseph NEUMANN, who was deported >from Brno / Bruenn in 1942 to Terezin and then Treblinka, where he most probably died.

There are no traces at ITS Bad Arolsen for either Hermine Auguste or Herman. Neither have I found anything at Yad Vashem. I have also searched ancestry, but no luck. So I am writing to you on the slight chance that Herman survived and possibly crossed paths with people reading the list.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Kind regards and happy Chanukkah,

Yizkor Book Project, November 2010 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Before outlining what has transpired in the month of November in the Yizkor
Book Project, I would like to take time to salute our very (very) small but
extremely dedicated team of volunteer htmlers - Max Heffler & Osnat Ramaty.
These wonderful people have been in the Yizkor Book for many, many years and
their experience, patience and never-say-no attitude is very much
appreciated. Max is also multi-tasking in a great deal of other projects and
he is the man behind the regular updates of our necrology database - an
extra salute to him! The necrology database, by-the-way, can be researched
at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

And on the subject of research, I am often sent messages asking if a Yizkor
book is available for a particular community. If this is a question you're
been asking yourself, I highly recommend you look at our Yizkor Book
database to see what book(s) are available for the community you're
researching and if we have a Yizkor Book Project already online, you will
note a hot link to the available translation in our site.

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html

Something new to our projects. We have began adding in hot links (where
appropriate) >from project main pages to the original Yizkor Books that are
available at the NY Public Library site:

http://legacy.www.nypl.org/research/chss/jws/yizkorbookonline.cfm

Since we have hundreds of books, we still have a lot to add but we see this
a great help for those who are able to read the books in their original
languages, and is on our long list of "things-to-do".

As always, the Yizkor Book Project relies on the help of its many volunteers
and if you feel that you have time to assist - knowledge in translation or
editing not a must, I would definitely like to hear >from you.

Now to the November figures. During this last month we have added these 4
new projects:
