Naomi Finkelstein asked:
I am wondering if someone can advise me about the Ukrainian Revision
List found at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/jgdetail_2.php?df=UKRREVS6&georegion=00ukraine&srch1=pischonker&srch1v=S&srch1t=Q&srchbool=AND&dates=all&newwindow=0&recstart=0&recjump=0.

I believe the first name in the list, Barukh, is my great-great
grandfather. What I want to know is in the comment column for Barukh is
says "Barukh's uncle is listed under #7 in precinct #10". The last name
on the list is Ios Moshko and it says "nephew...is registered under #30
in precinct #7. Where and how do I find these stated additional pieces
of information?

Copies of documents, unless otherwise indicated on the search results
will need to be ordered >from the appropriate archive. The Archive/ fond/
delo/opis is indicated on the search results, and contact information
for the various archives can be found on the Ukraine SIG website under
"research" and then under "reference tools"

Descendants of Moses Sherber, Jacob Ralhaus, Jacob Friedman, Mandeus Graf, David Hernichus, or Isidor Pfeffer-Phepner #general

Linda Habenstreit
 

My father's father Rafael-Rafal-Raphael-Rudolph-Rudolf HEBENSTREIT, born either
3/14/1888 or 4/15/1888, either in Belzec or Rawa Ruska, Galicia, Austria,
entered the Port of NY >from Liverpool on the SS Baltic on 4/5/1907.

Traveling with my grandfather >from Hamburg to Liverpool on 3/16/1907 and >from
Liverpool to NY, NY, on 3/27/1907 was Moses SHERBER, whose last residence was
also Rawa Ruska. Moses SHERBER was going to live with Jacob RALHAUS at 141-143
Attorney Street, NY, NY, upon his arrival in NY.

My grandfather listed both Jacob FRIEDMAN at 40 Clinton, NY, NY, and Mandeus
GRAF at 141-143 Attorney Street, NY, NY, as people he was going to live with
upon arrival in NY.

My father's mother Ernestina-Esther-Ester STECKMAN-STECHMANN born 4/22/1891 in
Husiatyn or Liczkowce or Litckowica or Liczkoweze, Galicia, Austria, entered
the Port of NY >from Rotterdam on the SS Ryndam on 10/7/1911. She was going to
live with her cousin David HERNICHUS at 200 Webster Ave., Jersey City, NJ, upon
arrival.

My grandmother's sister Schemdel-Jennie  STECKMAN-STECHMANN born 10/16/1898 in
Husiatyn or Liczkowce or Litckowica or Liczkoweze, Galicia, Austria, entered
the Port of NY on 6/3/1913. She was going to living with her uncle Isidor
PFEFFER upon arrival.

On my grandfather and grandmother's NY State Marriage Certificate dated
11/3/1917 in Manhattan, NY, the witnesses to their marriage were MorrIs
RATENBERG and Isidor PHEPNER.

I am looking for descendants of Moses SHERBER, Jacob RALHAUS, Jacob FRIEDMAN,
Mandeus GRAF, David HERNICHUS, Morris RATENBERG or Isidor PHEPNER-PFEFFER.
These individuals descendants may either be related to me through my
grandparents or may have been friends of my grandparents. They may be able to
shed light on my grandparents and their family members, who did not immigrate
to the US, stayed in Europe and may have died in a pogrom or the Holocaust.

Please contact me at lindahabenstreit@yahoo.com if you have ancestors with
these names. Thank you!

Re: Question re DNA: 3% Jewish Heritage #dna

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

Meg Forster,

Since you and your mother both test with Family Tree DNA, if you compare
your common matches, I am sure they will be a few that are listed closer
to you then to your mother. This is because for each SNP location tested,
we all have two values, one >from each of our parents. The company can not
tell which came >from whom, so if one of someone two values match someone
else one of two values, they claimed a match. Because of this, siblings
instead of having a little over 50% matching to each other had over 75%
chances of matching. (The reason for a "little over" is one parent may
have both of their the same value and therefore all of their children will
have the match.) With the other SNP value you could match someone else
that is no related to your other match person on that same SNP location.
That is the reason some of your matches will be closer to you than to your
mother. Another reason is a given mutation is not unique. It could
happened a number of times which increase the percentage of matches.

You asked 'Based on this DNA analysis, do you think there is a possibility
that I actually have "Jewish Ancestry"?'. My answer is it impossible to
tell. However, because of population growth and going back a number of
generations, by chance alone every European is related to all other
European! If you go back additional generations, everyone is related to
everyone else. Among Ashkenazi Jews, I will estimate that they all are
5th cousin or closer to all the others.

Name Hersko #general

Carol Karp
 

Could the name Hersko also be the name Herman?

The county said the father of my gggrandmother was Herman Fridman.
I found census records for Hersko Fridman. There is no wife listed but one of
the children is Rosa Fridman which is the name of gggrandmother.
Some of her siblings have names similar to those that she eventually named her
own children .

If this is correct it took me 40+ years. Thank you Jewish Gen

Offering NYC Lookups Municipal Archives / Library #general

A. E. Jordan
 

If anyone needs assistance with look ups and retrievals in New York City at
the Municipal Archives or the NY Public Library, I am getting ready to do my
next research trip next week.

What I can do is retrieve or read and transcribe vital records that you have
identified. I generally visit the NY Municipal Archives, Manhattan Probate
Court, and NY Public Library.

The Archives holds:

NYC births through 1909
NYC Deaths through 1948
NYC marriages both Health Department and City Clerk through 1949

Generally what I do is retrieve the files you have identified but can not
access on your own. I can buy copies $11 each at the Archives or take notes
and email you.

Also if you have a "maybe" file I can look at it and compare it against your
information, example to see if the parent's names are what you expected. so
save buying something only to find it it is the wrong person.

I do appreciate a few dollars to help offset my expenses when I do this plus
any printing costs

Email me off list if you are interested and we can discuss what I can do.

Always happy to offer advice or comments about NYC area research and the tricks
of the trade.

A. E. Jordan
 

If anyone needs assistance with look ups and retrievals in New York City at
the Municipal Archives or the NY Public Library, I am getting ready to do my
next research trip next week.

What I can do is retrieve or read and transcribe vital records that you have
identified. I generally visit the NY Municipal Archives, Manhattan Probate
Court, and NY Public Library.

The Archives holds:

NYC births through 1909
NYC Deaths through 1948
NYC marriages both Health Department and City Clerk through 1949

Generally what I do is retrieve the files you have identified but can not
access on your own. I can buy copies $11 each at the Archives or take notes
and email you.
