SITE CITE - Jewish cemetery of Bad Neustadt an der Saale #germany

I have transcribed the grave stones of the Jewish cemetery of Bad Neustadt
an der Saale, Lower Franconia. The stones were photographed by Moshecaine
(Jerusalem), eyal tagar and Anna and uploaded to the Billion Graves web site

There are a few stones in Hebrew only that still need to be transcribed.

logistics of matching with a specific person #dna

Helen Gardner
 

Hello there.

I am in email contact with a person who may be related to me.
Neither of us has our data on your system. He knows nothing
beyond his father, and I know nothing beyond my grandmother,
but his family came >from Warsaw, as did mine, and his surname,
Mlynarz, is almost identical to that of my grandmother, Mlynasz.
Since it is not a common name, there does seem to be a
possibility of a relationship.

It seems we would need to use MtDNA and we may need to use the
full sequencing because we cross gender lines.

In practical terms, how would we use DNA sequencing to test
whether we are related? We both live in Australia, about 150
miles apart. We are meeting on July 8, but I suspect that's too
soon to get anything going, as I haven't even asked him yet
whether he would be interested in doing the matching. Would we
need to submit our samples together? If the samples need to be
sent to the US, is there a problem with how long they may take
to arrive (4 days to a week using airmail, and if we need to send
them together, add a few days for post >from one of us to the other
for sending on together)? I assume we get a report giving us the
likelihood of us being related.

Could you please advise me on the best sequencing plan, and the
logistics of managing the process.

regards
Helen Gardner

One name: one person or two? #general

Dave Strausfeld <davestra@...>
 

Hi all,

I have a puzzler for you. Would it be reasonable for there to be
two Jewish women of the same name in a certain shtetl in the late
nineteenth century?

The shtetl in question is Frampol, which had a Jewish population in
1900 of somewhere around 1,000, according to Jewishgen.

So here are my two records:

1) I have a translated birth record for a Sluwa Krikszer born in
Frampol in 1878. In this record, the father's name is Majer.

2) I also have a 1910 passenger manifest for a Sluwa Brenner (nee
Krikszer) >from Frampol that lists her father's name as Moshe.

I have many more records for her and I'm sure her maiden name was
Krikszer.

Both women would have been about the same age, which makes me wonder
whether I truly have two different people. Clearly, one of the records
could be in error about the father's name, most likely the passenger
manifest.

What I'm wondering is, how likely would it be for there to be two
roughly-the-same-age Jewish women of the same name in this shtetl?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Dave Strausfeld

P.S. Complicating things a bit, I also have an 1889 Frampol birth
record for a Krikszer son that says the father's name was Moshe.

Re : SCHWARTZ Suwalki #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybr26@...>
 

" SCHWARTZ is not a Polish name, most probably the translation of the original
name which is CZARNY in polish. And that name was present in Suwalki records."

Schwartz is indeed not Polish (and Czarny is), but it is German and (I am guessing)
Yiddish. My gg grandmother, >from Augustow, now Poland, then Suwalki gubernia (on
the Prussian border), was SN Schwartz in some of the few records that exist in the
area, and a distant cousin I found knows the name >from her family's stories.

Any 'German' name that you think doesn't belong in a Russian area is probably
Yiddish.
