LIEBES DNA project - enlarging to Kempen-Kepno (Posen, Prussia) #general

Nicole Heymans <fc473099@...>
 

Dear genners,

Last year I set up a family project at Family Tree DNA for the surname
LIEBES. A classical surname project is a group of individuals researching
a particular surname, and specifically those trying to establish a common
ancestry by testing the Y-DNA of individuals who trace a direct paternal
line to a family with that surname. This project is a little wider, as it
also tests mixed-line descendants of anyone with LIEBES among their
ancestors, using the Family Finder test.

The LIEBES surname is found in various locations (Posen Province, Prussia
(now Poznan, Poland); Lemberg, Prussia (now Lvyyv, Ukraine);
Alsace-Lorraine, France). How do these connect?

To date, the project has been quite successful in confirming evidence of
relationships, suspected >from paper records, among a number of LIEBES
descendants >from Posen Province.

I would like to widen the project to include (for the time being)
a) anyone who has LIEBES among their ancestors;
b) anyone who has a known ancestor who lived in Kempen/Kepno or nearby
(In the Duchy of Posen, later Posen Province) during the 19th century.

Anyone corresponding to one or the other description please contact
me privately.

Never forget that DNA testing is no substitute for the "paper trail".
It can only confirm or reject paper trail proposals.

Database of Russian Army Jewish Soldiers: Russo-Japanese War ( 1904-05) #general

Layne <lonufer@...>
 

Dear Genners,
Recently there was discussion of Russian Army Jewish Soldiers in the
Russo-Japanese War. There is a database which contains only those soldiers
who were injured, killed or missing. Is there a source for Jewish soldiers
who survive?

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Sanatoriums in Egypt #general

Layne <lonufer@...>
 

Dear Genners,
In a recent JewishGen post, I read an inquiry and answers about travel to
Egypt. This brought my search for a great great uncle who emigrated to
Leeds, England, changing his family name >from Milionstchik to Miller. When
his parents tried to contact him in England, they were informed he was sent
to a sanatorium in Egypt to recover >from tuberculosis. He was never heard
from again.
Is there anyone who has a family member sent to Egypt to recover >from
tuberculosis? Have you been able to get additional information about this
family member and if yes, then how?

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

suggested new project #ukraine

philafrum

I think it would be helpful when we use the JewishGen Communities Database
to be able to immediately link to reports >from fellow Ukraine SIG members
who've traveled to the towns in which we're interested. The pop-up window
provides basic information about towns; having the urls to such travel
reports would greatly enhance our understanding of these towns and
connect us with other researchers.

Ron Doctor suggests the following steps that an enthusiastic Project Leader
would follow to implement a project like this:

1. Post notices soliciting travel reports

2. When travel reports arrive, edit and proofread them and prepare
any photos for posting.

3. Give the report an appropriate name.

4. If for a specific town or multiple towns, contact the relevant
KehilaLinks owner(s) and help get the travel report posted on the
KehilaLinks website(s).

5. If for a district, province, or Ukraine in general, post the
travel report for the appropriate area on the Ukraine SIG website.
The Project Leader would have limited access to the Ukraine SIG
Database Manager (DBM) that would allow you to do this.

6. Create links through our DBM to the location of the travel report
and add a brief description of it.

7. Check the website areas to be sure the report is posted properly.

8. Send a message to the List announcing availability of the travel report.

Using the DBM for this purpose is fairly straightforward. Entries are made
in pre-set forms.

Unfortunately I'm not in a position to be Project Leader but I'd
like to coordinate responses to identify that person or a team of
people to handle this. Please respond to me directly.
