Re: Lithuanian Jews in Sweden #scandinavia

You are right: Many Jews lived for a shorter or longer period
in Scandinavia (mostly Sweden or Denmark) until they had saved
enough money for the fare to America.

Many moved around >from Sweden to Denmark or vice versa simply
staying where there was work to be had.

So I suggest that you give us some more detailed information:
Names, dates, occupations, etc.

Then we might be able to help you.

Dear Scand-genners!

I have noticed that many have subscribed to this list recently
and I want to welcome all!

However, very few *USE* this list:
----------------------------------
1. Very few write about their research or ask for information
2. Almost none of the new subscribers write and introductory
message about the names and places they are researching.

In that way we are all sitting in a little hole without a
view to the greater world or research. If we want to help
each other and/or get in contact with others who are researching
the same areas or names we *must* communicate.

I have seen subscribers come and go without ever writing one
single message. And when I have contacted them some say that
there is no point in being subscribed to list where there is
nothing going on - that can't help them!

I know very well that the situation is different in some other
(large) mailing lists where there are several messages each day,
so you can just lean back and learn a lot >from just reading what
others write. But that is not the case when subscribed to small
mailing lists (or rather mailing lists for small areas).

Another thing: Even though you might have sent your "Intro" when
you subscribed, you should re-send it at intervals, because some
unsubscribe and new subscribers join the list. And very few use
the archive to see if anything has been written there of interest.

So send an introductory message about your research and let's get
this mailing list go live!

EPSTEIN Family Y-DNA Study #belarus

Itzhak Epstein
 

Several EPSTEINs have joined in a Family Tree DNA JewishGen surname project.
Painless mouth
swab genetic testing procedures are being used as
a promising tool for breaking through our
genealogical brick walls. It might help you to
greatly expand your family tree, and may also help our surname project.

So far, most of the project's members' recent
direct male ancestors are >from Belarus or nearby
areas in Poland, Lithuania, and the Ukraine. A
rough count of JewishGen Family Finder listings
for southwestern Belarus indicates that EPSTEIN
is the third most frequently researched surname
-- just behind KAPLAN and LEVINE, and just ahead of LIFSHITZ and GOLDBERG.

We have identified members of one paternal
lineage that has borne the Epstein surname for
several centuries. There are hints of another old
line. Most of the project's current members,
however, are patrilineally unrelated to each
other. In addition, most of us have discovered
patrilineal relationships to men whose surnames are not Epstein.

We are working on identifying the various
branches of our principal cluster, on exploring
additional clusters, and on connecting our
unrelated members to cousins. To accomplish these
goals and to create as broad a search as
possible, we need more male Epsteins to
contribute a cheek swab as a DNA sample. If you
are female EPSTEIN or an EPSTEIN through female
ancestors, a sample >from an EPSTEIN male relative
can represent your family in the test. If you are
not an EPSTEIN, please share this message with
EPSTEINs who may want to participate in this project.

To join, go to
http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join.asp?code=3DR56553&special=3Dtrue
The basic, and most affordable, twelve marker
test will indicate to whom you are probably
related. The more advanced tests could help to
identify closer and more certain relationships.
You can start with the 12 marker test and add to
it at a later date, using the same sample.

If you have any questions, please contact Marsha
Epstein, our project's volunteer administrator at
mailto:epsteindna_admin@earthlink.net

decoding dates and deciphering many of the more common inscriptions.

His son was Lucien KALMANOWICZ, was born about 1910 in Wloclawek. He
survived the Holocaust.
He was living in Paris in 1991, at 8 Rue Fabre d'Eglentine. I cannot find
him now. Perhaps he had children? Perhaps he died?

His daughter Janina YENTOWICZ, born about 1915, submitted a page of
testimony to Yad Vashem in 1957 for her father. She may have lived in
France also.

So I'm searching for the children and grandchildren of Janina and Lucien.

Traxler family: Reminder to Search the AHD and Other Resources #hungary

Hi Caryl,

I don't know if they are your Traxlers, but there are a number of
references to Traxlers in the All Hungary Database
(http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary/). The Radix Index also
includes a number of Traxlers (http://www.radixindex.com/). There are
several Traxlers on the Ellis Island database as well. So there are
definitely Traxlers on Hungarian lists and on U.S. lists.

Genealogy.com has a posting >from someone whose ancestor was named Arthur
Dreschler, who changed his name to Traxler in the United States. The
reason: "He change his surname to Traxler because in German the D sounds
like "t"; SCH sounds like "x" in English and the name did sound like
Traxler." Those of you who speak Hungarian would have to confirm whether
this applies also to Hungarian. It does raise the point about how sure
you are that the name was spelled Traxler in Hungary - there are many
more Dreschlers and similar sounding names in the All Hungary Database.
