I quote:
". A law guaranteeing access to the state archives for specialists >from the
Federation of Jewish Communities in Romania in order to know the truth about
their past during the two world wars."

For those who are not familiar with Romanian archives:

Tens if not hundred of thousands of records >from WWII era were scanned
by Yad Va Shem and the US Holocaust Museum.
Securitate and the Kingdom era security organization (Sigurantza)
archives are open.
Anyone can get to a Romanian archive and study the available records.
To my best knowledge - the one important material that is kept
confidential are the raw forms of the 1942 Jewish Census (though a
small part of it was found by Rom-Sig and digitized). This material is
considered confidential due to privacy reasons.
Thus, I don't see any real change.

Re: Jumping matches? #dna

Victoria Barkoff
 

On March 24, Daniel Weinberger was puzzling about the fact that he
matches to a woman whom he calls "Anna" but not to Anna's sons, while
his own son does not match to Anna but does match to Anna's son's.
Could this be explained by a relationship between his son's mother and
Anna's sons' father?

Seeking Info on Yehoshua Wolfsthal #galicia

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Colleagues,

I am conducting research about my family >from Galicia. The family has
largely in Ternopol (family of musicians that formed the well known
Wolfsthal Kapelle ensemble), Lwow (as documented in the Maksymilian
Wolfsthal memoirs viewable at the USHMM) and Husiatyn (birthplace
of the part who came to Israel before the Shoah). Some gaps do exist
in the family tree, in particular about Yehoshua WOLFSTHAL who
moved out of the region. I've exhausted sources and hope this group
can help shed light on him.

The information I've gathered indicates that Yehushua was the
Headmaster of the Jewish Gymnasium in Wolkowisk before WW2, and
in 1935 he married a teacher who worked in that school (Czarna Nusia,
also listed in YvS). Their marriage took place at the house of the
bride's relatives in Katowice.

My challenge is identifying Yehushua WOLFSTHAL's parents, birth
date & place. I believe that would help resolve his ties to the larger
family in Galicia.

I am looking for advice/assistance in (1) direct information on
Yehoshua's info (parents/date/place, and/or (2) pointers to archives
where I may search for un-indexed information about him.

Thanks for any information/advice.

Daniel,

What is the size of the total segments matches between you and
Anna
Adrian
Abel

What is the size of the total segments matches between your son and
Anna
Adrian
Abel

What is the size of the total segments matches between your son's mother
and
Anna
Adrian
Abel

Also, if you phase your son's matches on GedMatch, and Anna does the
same for her son's, and then compare, you will eliminate many false
positives

Hi Dan

Most likely there is some DNA matching with Anna's son etc however it
is much smaller so is not showing. Remember each person has a different
amount of DNA material they receive >from parents, grandparents etc. I
have a strong match (with a know relative) with one person but none
showing with her brother.

I am confused. I made a DNA testing with MyHeritage and got a match with a
woman we can call Anna. But there is no match between Anna and a son of mine
who has also been tested. Maybe his DNA >from me didn't contain DNA that I
share with Anna.

Anna's sons Adrian and Abel has also been tested. There is no match between
me and any of them but between them and my tested son.

How come?

Best regards

Researching Angela DUNAI- need help #general

Jessica Sander <jessicasander87@...>
 

Hello,
I am researching my Hungarian grandmother to determine if she is Jewish. Her
name is Angela DUNAI, DOB: 18.2.1920, married name KOCSIS.
She escaped across the boarder to Austria during WWII before immigrating to
Australia.
I would appreciate if there is any researchers or others like me who have
looked into the DUNAI name in Hungary, who would be willing to share their
findings/knowledge with me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
