FTDNA Sephardic Results Question #dna

Ben Forman
 

Hi Genners

Following the update of the FTDNA MyOrigins tool I re-analysed my
Paternal Family's results and found that one of my dad's cousins (1st
cousin once removed) came out as 8% Sephardic, this didn't entirely
surprise me since she had the highest amount of South and Eastern
Mediterranean under the old results. I have my dad, his brother and 3
cousins in FTDNA and the same plus more in GedMatch (transferred from
23andMe) I've previously run all of the family through the Admixture
tool and have received reasonably similar results for each, so I was
wondering:

- Does anyone know on what basis the new MyOrigins tool recognises
Sephardic DNA and who the reference populations are
- Is there a way of using the GedMatch admixture tests tools to try
and isolate the most likely population >from which this ancestor came.
Accepting that it's more likely to come >from an ancestor of my dad's
cousin rather than any shared ancestor

Thanks as always

Correction re Residence Rules in Russian Empire #general

Judith Singer
 

A kind reader has pointed out that I mixed up the names of the Tsars
when discussing residency rules in the Russian Empire. Alexander I was
Tsar of Russia >from 1801 to 1825 and issued the 1804 rules. Alexander
II was the Tsar under whom residency and other rules were loosened; he
reigned >from 1855 to 1881. Alexander II was succeeded by Alexander
III.

I apologize for the mistake and for any confusion this may have caused.

POMERANZ #general

Dina Hill
 

I am trying to figure out what happened to my grandmother's second
husband. His name was Anschel Pomeranc. My grandmother was Slawa
Muszket Chamita who married Anschel Pomeranc in Krasnik, Poland after
they were liberated.

I am also trying to find death information for him, his brother Kuna
and Kuna's wife Chaja. Kuna and Chaja Pomeranc came to the USA in 7
Apr 1951 to New York, but there is nothing after that. I don't know
when t hey died. Surely he would have obtained a social security
number, right??

The brothers Anschel and Kuna were born in Szczecin. Kuna was born in
1904. There is nothing for Anschel. I wonder what his English name
would have been. I am pretty sure he wold have immigrated to the USA
as well.

Kuna and Chaja had 3 children who were killed in the Shoah. How do I
find out where they were killed? What camp was near Szczecin, Poland?

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Sincerely,
Dina Aptekar Hill

(US) 100th Anniversary of US Entry Into World War l #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The United States declared War on April 6, 1917-the 100th anniversary of the
US entering World War 1 is this week. According to an article in Moment
Magazine, "How The First World War Changed Jewish History", there were a
million and a half Jews who fought in World War I for their respective
countries, of which 250,000 were Jewish soldiers >from the United States.

https://www.momentmag.com/how-the-first-world-war-changed-jewish-history

World War 1 is a turning point in Jewish history--without that war some
scholars say there would not have been the Holocaust or the State of Israel.
The following special commemorations by US National Archives and Library of
Congress may have records on your Jewish ancestors who fought in the "war to
end all wars".

To commemorate the centennial occasion, the (US) National Archives is
presenting a special display of the Joint Resolution declaring war against
the Imperial German Government through May 3, 2017 at the National Archives
Museum in Washington DC. For more information see:

https://www.archives.gov/press/press-releases/2017/17-44

The National Archives World War l Centennial Events and Exhibits has a
portal page for the largest repository of American World War l records:

https://www.archives.gov/topics/wwi#event-/timeline/item/archduke-assassination
[or http://tinyurl.com/mkxbw9h --Mod.]

Click on the box "Genealogy Resources" and look for the World War l Draft
Registration Cards, Military Service Records, Deaths and Veterans Homes to
find your Jewish-American ancestors who served in World War 1.

World War l resulted in the U.S. Congress passing the Selective Service Act
shortly after war was declared to provide the necessary troops to fight.
About 24 million men registered for the Selective Service Act and 4.8
million served in the war and 2.8 million of them were drafted. These
included Jewish men who signed up to fight in the war. World War 1 also is
"credited" with revolutionizing medicine-one of the notable effects was the

America had remained neutral for three years in the conflict that began
with the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand of Austria by a Serbian
nationalist in June 1914 and the ensuing conflict across Europe. US
neutrality ceased after Germany committed acts of aggression against the
United States in 1917.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen (US) 100th Anniversary of US Entry Into World War l #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The United States declared War on April 6, 1917-the 100th anniversary of the
US entering World War 1 is this week. According to an article in Moment
Magazine, "How The First World War Changed Jewish History", there were a
million and a half Jews who fought in World War I for their respective
countries, of which 250,000 were Jewish soldiers >from the United States.

World War 1 is a turning point in Jewish history--without that war some
scholars say there would not have been the Holocaust or the State of Israel.
The following special commemorations by US National Archives and Library of
Congress may have records on your Jewish ancestors who fought in the "war to
end all wars".

To commemorate the centennial occasion, the (US) National Archives is
presenting a special display of the Joint Resolution declaring war against
the Imperial German Government through May 3, 2017 at the National Archives
Museum in Washington DC. For more information see:

The National Archives World War l Centennial Events and Exhibits has a
portal page for the largest repository of American World War l records:

Click on the box "Genealogy Resources" and look for the World War l Draft
Registration Cards, Military Service Records, Deaths and Veterans Homes to
find your Jewish-American ancestors who served in World War 1.

World War l resulted in the U.S. Congress passing the Selective Service Act
shortly after war was declared to provide the necessary troops to fight.
About 24 million men registered for the Selective Service Act and 4.8
million served in the war and 2.8 million of them were drafted. These
included Jewish men who signed up to fight in the war. World War 1 also is
"credited" with revolutionizing medicine-one of the notable effects was the
start of motor-ambulance corps, another was to transport soldiers to
hospitals where their wounds could be disinfected and repaired rather than

In August I shared a spreadsheet menu of items that were available for
scanning at the The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish
People Jerusalem (CAHJP) http://cahjp.nli.org.il/. Many of our SIG
members requested items and thanks to a number of generous donors to our
SIG fund on JewishGen, and especially Susan Boyer, I have received the
newly scanned materials. You can find them (I hope) on Dropbox at

Please let us all know when you find something of interest in these new

Re: Odd event 1925 Vienna #austria-czech

Mark Tritsch
 

David,
Purim was in March, but Fasching (the catholic version) was in February in
1925 (Ash Wednesday on 25 Feb). Here's a poster for the 1923 Boese Buben
Ball:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Böse_Buben_Ball_1923_Wien.jpg.
"Boese Buben" is a favorite meme for a Carneval Ball in German speaking
countries, you still find it a lot (after all, it's where bad boys can be
bad).
Perhaps someone in Vienna who collects Fasching memorabilia would be able to
help you more. Or try the people at Adler http://www.adler-wien.at.
Best regards,
Mark Tritsch


Prostejov #austria-czech

mbeer@...
 

My town of origin, Prossnitz (Prostejov) is not on the map you have sent to
me.
Prostejov is between Olomouc and Brno, before the holocaust there were about
2.000 Jews in Prostejov.
There are no Jews in Prostejov now.
I am not far >from being ninety years old - my memory is not so good anymore.
With holiday greetings >from Tel Aviv, Maud Michal Beer.
