Re: Seeking Family of Samuel Abramowitz Born Circa 1898 (in NY or Russia?) #general

Susan J. Gordon
 

I think many late 19th c - early 20th c immigrants said they were born in America -
including my own beloved grandmother. Not until I studied her marriage certificate
- which listed "Czernowitz" as her birthplace - did I realize she had (gently)
lied, and arrived at Ellis Island at the age of 4 or 5 - old enough to remember the
journey, but young enough to shed her foreign accent and speak English like a
native-born American.

Judi asked: Could it be possible that someone who came here when he was a baby
might have thought he was born in NY like his younger siblings, and not across the
ocean like his older siblings?

The short answer is yes, or he may have chosen to mis-state the facts as my family
did. My GM's older sibs, born 1884 and 1887 in Russia, came to NY prior to 1891.
The only record I have which shows their true birthplace is the 1900 census in
which they are in an orphanage. Every subsequent census (I can't find them in
1905), marriage, and death record I have for them shows birth in NY. My GM was
born in Russia shortly before her mother and sibs emigrated, she didn't come to NY
until ten years later. Her first marriage license in 1920 shows birth as NY but
records after that do show Russia and she did go through the citizenship process.
Her older sibs never did.

Can someone tell me where Sokola, Poland is located? #general

David Perley
 

My ancestors were the Perlowitz family >from Sokola, Lomza, Russia. They came to
America in 1883 to 1900. I have been trying to figure out where Sokola is in
Lomza, Poland. I am wondering if anyone knows if Sokola is another name for Sokoly,
Poland or Gac, Poland. Sokola may be entirely different town.

They belonged to the CONG. Ahawa Sholem Anshea Sokola in New York . I have a
Hamburg Ship Manifest that list their residence as Sokolok, Russland. I have
another ship manifest that listed the city as Sokola >from the Lomza providence.

I would appreciate any help in this matter.

Thanks,
David Perley

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on JewishGen's Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

One kind of chapter that I have seen in several Yizkor books (and published some
examples before) was the custom in many shtetls to coining nicknames. As this
installment >from the Yizkor book of Chrzanow, Poland, "These nicknames were
individually earned-some referred to one's occupation; others expressed physical
qualities (, while still others had to do with the owner's character." So, >from
"Bobe" to "Shivtser," here's a list of monikers used by the townspeople of
Chrzanow.

Re: Explain a Centimorgan #dna

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

Arlene Bears totally missed what I was saying in her reply to "for
endogamy population, like Ashkenazic Jewish community, their methods do
not work well when the numbers of passing between persons are 7 or
more...". I was talking about each passing >from a parent to their child.
A sample of 7 passing will be a second cousins once removed. It have
nothing to do with the length of segments. If it did, I will quoted from
the webpage "https://isogg.org/wiki/Endogamy". It read "For people with
Jewish ancestry it has been suggested that you need to have at least one
long half-identical region of 23 cMs or more to have some hope of finding
the relationship in genealogical time."

She also did not mentioned what MyHeritage does to support they matches.
They gave the most information. It include the amount of shared DNA in
both % and centimorgans (cM), numbeer of shared segments and the length of
the largest segment in cM.

(Dominican Republic) Sosua, Dominican Republic Offered Jews Safety from Nazis #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A Dominican village, Sosua, became home to Jewish refugees during World War
ll. Rafael Trujillo offered Jews safety >from the Nazi terror in Europe for a
promise to develop the land. The American Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee (JDC) founded the Dominican Republic Settlement Association
(DORSA). The Association gave the refugees land, and animals to work the
land, including cows, horses and mules. 1938 Trujillo offered to take up to
100,000 refugees but with the outbreak of World War ll and the Nazi ban on
Jewish emigration only 4,000 visas were issued. The refugees founded a
small Jewish museum next to the town synagogue. The museum has photographs,
Interviews of leaving refugees and other documents of historical interest,
however, none of the items are digitized.

The Washington Post published a story of one of the descendants of the
refugees to Sosua and what she learned. The article may be read at:

The website has information on the history of Sosua, photographs of the
