Zastrselona translation #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

Would like to thank all that responded to my request for the translation of
Zastrselona meaning "shot.to death".it does not surprise me that in 1916 it would be
a cause of death and closes one more door in my analysis. In general, I think cause
of death is important for the families to know, if it can be found.
As usual the response was overwhelming.

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

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

One kind of chapter I often come across in Yizkor books, and have
published here before, is a compendium of Yiddish nicknames or sayings
that were popular in a town or region. These are yet another prism for
getting a feel for daily life. Such is the case with "Nicknames in
Chrzanow," a shtetl in Poland that's a little less than 40 miles >from
Krakow. So, you learn that "knaytsh" was a tavernkeeper who served beer
on credit on the Sabbath, since he wouldn't take any money. And a
"kozemashin" had its origin in the business of an enterprising Jew who
came up with the idea of bringing a booth with a stove and sold "roasted
potatoes and chestnuts, drew apple wine with seltzer >from a copper jug,
and most impressive, had a sort of roulette game- a wheel with a wooden
stork in the middle."

Calculations for Cousins #dna

David Goldman
 

Hi, everybody. As a green new participant learning along the way and looking
for correlations, I am finding that at the known second cousin levels the
numbers of CmS on segments reach very high, like over 200. Discovering known
and unknown second cousins once removed and third cousins, however, the
numbers of CmS drop to the 90s (whereby we had great-grandparents who were
siblings). However, in both situations I have definite confirmations of
matches. So it impels me to try to figure out how apparent unknown relatives
in the 80 or 90 CmS are related. So far at least I have been unable to
confirm any matches at all below the number 90 CmS.
Just some anecdotal information.

Re: Shapiro

What about a Hebrew origin such as Sapir? I've always been under the
impression that this is the "root" of Shapiro.

Translation of cause of death #general

Can someone translate the word Zastrselona. It relates to the cause of
death on a 1916 Polish death record in the city of Lviv. I have looked
in a Polish to English medical dictionary and cannot find it listed.

Help with ethical questions related to DNA match and request to join my family tree #ukraine

Patricia Klindienst <epk13@...>
 

Has anyone out there received queries >from total strangers who claim to be related because of their DNA results? Has anyone dealt with requests to be invited to join a family tree so they can pursue their research?

I need help with the ethical as well as a practical questions regarding queries that have come to me >from someone who says his DNA test results mean he is related to a branch of the family tree I have spent years creating. He asks that I allow him access so he can pursue his research. I am reluctant to grant his request.

He has sent me a link to a GEDMatch.com kit, but I don't know how to evaluate it. Can anyone help me with this?

I would like to hear privately form others who may have received queries >from total strangers who feel they are related and expect permission to research in depth a family tree. How have you dealt with this?

I am troubled by the tone of the request, the writer's sense of secrecy and drama, his claim that he's searching for his birth father and that finding my site suggests that his hunches about his true identity were correct, etc.

As the creator of a tree that includes families in Israel, Argentina, and Canada as well as the US, I take seriously my responsibility to protect everyone's right to privacy.

Any stories or guidance or help reading a DNA result would be greatly appreciated.
