Re: Lviv House and Street Photo Project - Sloneczna #galicia

Hello Josef and Stella,

One of the ancestral houses of the Schrenzel family In Lwow was
at Sloneczna St. today Kluisha. I still don't know the house number.
Probably 20-22. Another house was probably No. 14.

Are you familiar with the name?

Do you know if the house numbers were changed? Maybe when the
street name changed?

Have you tried to locate in Lviv documents regarding assets? Every
house there has a file.

Do you know someone that can go there and take a look?

Re: Different surnames for same person #general

atefreebox-jgen@...
 

Tsarist Russia accumulated an enormous mass of constantly changing
legislation discriminating against Jews and to live under those laws
was a nightmare.

If I'm not mistaken, in an effort to curb Jewish birth rate the
Russians did indeed prevent Jews of one Guberniya in the Pale of
Settlement >from marrying Jews >from other Guberniyas, and established a
civil marriages quota for Jews in the Guberniya where they resided.
For people who fell outside this civil marriage quota religious
marriage was an option (that they would have taken anyway), and the
offspring of that religious marriage bore the mother's maiden surname as
its official surname.

In the eyes of nasty antisemitic Russian officials they were the bastard
offspring of an unmarried Jewish mother but, according to Jewish law,
that offspring was as legal as can be.

...I don't know whether or not civil marriages of Jews were prevented
outside of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but it may be a variant of
the story being changed to "In Europe the authorities often didn't
let the Jews marry..."

Dear Group,

Some of you may be interested in this link. It's to the (small) Jewish

Reduced price for Family Tree DNA test #germany

jplowens@...
 

GerSIG veteran Janet Billstein Akaha asked that we alert our SIG
members of a special DNA testing opportunity. A reduced price for the
"37 marker Y DNA test is available until December 31st.

This and other Y DNA tests are for men only and provide information
only about their male ancestral line.

Janet adds "Y DNA testing may reveal that you have markers that suggest
either a Kohanim or Levite lineage. Also, Y DNA testing is a valuable
tool for genealogists because it helps identify unknown branches of
our family tree that may or may not share the same surname."

The special price is offered by Family Tree DNA (FTDNA). FTDNA is the
only DNA testing company endorsed by JewishGen.

JewishGen receives a donation >from the company for all DNA testing
ordered through JewishGen using the link described below.
(The December reduced price offer applies to the 37 marker Y DNA test only.)

Janet Akaha is Co-Administer of the "German-Jewish SIG DNA Project" hosted by
Family Tree DNA. She will soon post more detailed information about Y
DNA and other genetic testing useful in genealogy research. Janet
will answer questions about the German-Jewish SIG DNA project on
request to her at <akaha@...>.

To take advantage of the limited time reduced price for the 37 marker
Y DNA test and generate a donation to JewishGen the test must be
ordered this way:

At the JewishGen home page www.jewishgen.org
Click on the "Family Tree DNA" box with the red logo on the right side of
the page.

This takes you to the "JewishGen-ealogy by Genetics" page.

Move down this page to the "FTDNA Surname Projects & More" section.

Below "Special Interest Group (SIG) Geographical DNA Projects" find
and click on "German Jewish SIG" in the table of projects.

Move down this page to "Male Line Testing for Genealogy and Anthropology"
to find "DNA 37"

To order this test at the special price click on "order now".

Along this route you'll find much information about DNA testing and
how it can help your genealogy research. Further information will be
posted here soon. German-Jewish SIG DNA Project Administrator Janet
Akaha will try to provide additional help on request to:
