Western Sephardim DNA Project #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I'm looking for potential participants to participate in our study of Western
Sephardi paternal DNA lineages. Thanks to a generous grant,testing kits will be
provided at no cost to the participants. Eligible participants are those who are
direct paternal line descendants of the Western Sephardi community.

What is the Western Sephardi community? The Western Sephardim, were arguably the
original transnational people in the age of Imperialism and Colonialism,
transcending religious boundaries and empires.The Western Sephardim include the
communities of Amsterdam, London, Livorno, Venice, Bordeaux and Southwest France,
and their daughter communities in the New World in Curacao, Suriname, and North
America. There were also Western Sephardim who ended up in the Ottoman Empire,
most notably in Izmir, Salonika, and Tunis.

Who is eligible? Anyone who is >from those communities of direct paternal descent is
eligible. For example, I am a part of the testing cohort, representing the Vaz
Lopes family of Bordeaux and Amsterdam. As part of the testing, we will also need
an accurate paternal genealogy, with as much information as you can provide.

The goal of this project is to try and shed light on the origins of the Western
Sephardi community and to establish a strong dataset of DNA results, grounded in
strong archival research and results that would lead to further intensive studies
of Sephardim.

Please contact me if you are interested or know someone who might be eligible. We
aim to have a cohort of at least 50 men tested. I am happy to answer any questions!
Your privacy is protected and the results of the study will be published.

Thanks for your interest!

Seattle Jewish Theater Company at the 36th IAJGS Conference #courland #latvia

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

This summer's 36th conference of the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies in Seattle will feature a performance of the
highly acclaimed play >from Door to Door. The heart-warming, bittersweet
comedy will be staged by the Seattle Jewish Theater Company, a local
theater group devoted to Jewish-themed plays.

Written by award-winning playwright James Sherman and directed by SJTC
artistic director Art Feinglass, >from Door to Door follows the lives of
three generations of a family of Jewish women, >from impoverished
immigrant to successful American. The performance will take place on
the evening of August 9 in the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton Hotel in
downtown Seattle, where the conference will run >from August 7 to 12.

As director Art Feinglass notes, "The play takes its title >from the
Hebrew song L'dor V'dor, '>from generation to generation.' It examines
what it means to grow up Jewish and to love those closest to, and most
like, ourselves." An audience discussion with the director and cast will
follow the performance.

During the conference, SJTC will also present Jewish History Live in
which actors will portray Jewish immigrants who came to Seattle from
areas as disparate as Turkey, Rhodes, and Russia in the early 1900s, and
Germany and Czechoslovakia in the 1930s. They will engage conference
attendees in conversation, tell their personal stories and share their
dreams as new immigrants to America.

This summer's IAJGS conference will also feature a Jewish Film Festival
put together by leading Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema Eric
Goldman. Other highlights include the opening night keynote address by
Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of Washington Sephardic Studies
Program, and a resource room accessing a vast array of databases. And,
as at previous conferences, remote streaming of selected programs will
be available through LIVE!

Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami Event - Sunday May 22 2016 #general

Yoram Millman <ymillman.jgs@...>
 

Please join JGS of Greater Miami next event Sunday May 22 2016

Location : Greater Miami Jewish Federation

4200 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami Florida

Time : 11.00 am

Topic: Tracing a child after the Holocaust
Speaker: : Dr. Peter Tarjan :

Peter Tarjan will present his extensive search for a Jewish child whose tracks
had disappeared in Budapest in 1945.

This presentation is part of a project of seeking records of the plight of
children in Hungary and find those who may have survived but their tracks also
disappeared.

The speaker will describe his search for Miklos Reisman in cooperation with
Kathy Altman, first cousin of Miklos.

Miklos was the son of Jeno Reisman, the brother of Kathy's mother, and his
mother's maiden name was Ilona Stern. Miklos was born in Uzhgorod,
Czechoslovakia in 1937. The area was annexed to Hungary in 1938 and it is today
in Ukraine.

Jeno was drafted into the forced labor service for Jewish men and disappeared
on the Eastern Front. Ilona moved to Budapest in 1944. She was probably forced
into the infamous Eichmann March in November, 1944.

Kathy Altman began to search for Miklos in the 1990s. Ilona did survive and
returned to Budapest, but her tracks also disappeared. Ilona's brother, Martin
Stern, was living in Israel after the war.

Although the search has been inconclusive, it has produced numerous documents
which may be exploited toward establishing the identities and fates of many of
the children whose fate has not been recorded. There were probably thousands of
Jewish children who were taken to Israel, where many had changed their names
and some were too young to remember their lives during the war.

This presentation is made possible with the help of The Memorial Museum of
Hungarian Speaking Jewry in Safed, Israel
