Spanish speaking people who recently found out that they have Jewish Roots from DNA tests. #sephardic

Barry Mann
 

Hi,

I live in Salt Lake City. My parents were both Jewish, born in
Lithuania.

At the recent Roots Tech conference at the Salt Palace Convention Center
in Salt Lake City, I helped man the IAJGS (International Association of
Jewish Genealogical Societies) booth.

A few Spanish speaking visitors who live in Utah, asked me if I can help
them trace their Jewish Roots because their DNA tests, that they
recently had, show a certain percentage of Jewishness.
ie. One or more of their ancestors was Jewish.

I grew up in South Africa. Lived 42 years in El Paso, Texas where I
learned to speak some Spanish.

How can I best help them trace their one or more Jewish ancestors?

Thanks. Barry Mann. mannbarry@gmail.com

Yisrael Nachman ben Yosef of Ostrow-19th Zfat, Israel #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Still trying to track an ancestor who came to Eretz Yisrael during
the 19th century to Zfat. Yisrael Nachman ben Yosef (may have been
ROSENBAUM) was a student of the Chassidic Rebbe Yehoshua Heschel of
Apta. At some point moved >from Zfat to Tveria (Tiberias) and
supposedly buried there.

"Sefer Tveria" published in the 1970s mentions the family name
ROSENBAUM without any mention of who the familywas, or the time that
this family lived in Tveria. Israel Nachman's children changed their
family names to SCHECHTER.

Yisrael Nachman's was also related to the Lechowitz-Stolin Chassidic
dynasties through marriage.

names on dna matches #dna

rv Kaplan
 

Something that's puzzling me is why companies send out 'matches' and
don't insist in the name of the 'match' being included. For example,
today's batch >from one of these companies includes:

MP P

DNA managed by LP B

Given that I get bombarded regularly by 2 well-known companies with
lists of 'matches,' I don't open up every single case. I'd be more
likely to open one up if there was a surname match, for instance, but
the above information gives me no clues whatever.

Perplexed!

Altschottland 1880 familienbuch transcribed, needs proofreading #gdansk #germany #poland #danzig

The Altschottland 1880 familienbuch / census of Jewish Community
members' families (CAHJP file Da/596) has been fully transcribed and
needs proofreading before it can be added to the searchable Danzig
Database (part of the JewishGen Germany and Poland Databases). If you
would like to help proofread, please email me. You will need to be
able to read German Kurrent-style handwriting (this is very legible).
There are 418 entries across 55 images, consisting almost entirely of
names and dates, with a few short remarks, and I estimate it will take
2-3 hours to proofread.

INTRO - researching MEYER family from Bremen, Germany #germany

Günter Cimiotti <gunter.cimiotti@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
40 years. I consider myself to be advanced in doing German Genealogy,
but a beginner in doing Jewish Genealogy research.
I live in Paderborn, Northrhine-Westfalia, Germany.
My native language is German and I also know English and some Italian.
I consider myself intermediate in using a computer. My experience in
using the Internet is intermediate.

I have identified the names of my mother's employer family in Bremen.
My primary research goals now are to find out whether there are
descendants of this employer in the USA-

The family names and ancestral towns that I have found:
MEYER, Abraham 1846 Rodenberg
BLUEMENTHAL, Henriette 1852
MEYER, Nathan 1855
MEYER, Otto Hermann 1882 Bremen
BAER, Alice 1891
MEYER, Claus Hermann 1923 Bremen
MEYER, Hella Margret 1927 Bremen

Dear Itzik,

My father was born in 1908 in Hungary. In 1941-2 he was drafted into the Forced Labor service, digging trenches for the Hungarian Second Army. In January, 1943, he died near Voronezh (Russia) of typhoid fever, I think. He was a chemist and a pianist.

1. Mandatory Military Service

Subject: Mandatory Military Service
From: katz.itzik@gmail.com

X-Message-Number: 1

Hello and Happy Passover Siggers,

I am wondering if anyone here knows if there was a Mandatory Military
Service in Hungary. At what age were people required to draft and for
how long?

The reason for my question is that I know my father had been drafted
to Military service of several years before WWII broke (he was born
1915). I know that he was released >from service and returned home.

Then, after WWII broke, he was drafted again to Forced Labor
Battalions around 1941.

I am trying to draw the timeline of his life events and I am missing
this piece.

Thank you all for your help,

Itzik Katz
