Viewmate - 1928-29 Photographs of Zagare young men and women #general

Segal, Aron <Aron.Segal@...>
 

I have placed on ViewMate a photographs taken in Zagare in 1928 or 1929.

This photograph shows a group of young men and women >from Zagare in Lithuania.
At the time they would have been aged in their very late teens or early 20s.

Perhaps there are people in these photographs that somebody out there can
recognise and name.

If so, I would be thrilled to hear back >from you on this.

The document is on ViewMate at the following address.

http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=29409

My father Hirsh SEGAL is top row third >from right.

Hirsh left for Melbourne Australia in 1929.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you for your help

Sheina Esther GLASS from Uzventis, Lithuania ancestors #lithuania

Alison Greengard
 

Hello,
I am trying to find out any ancestors for my paternal great-grandmother
Sheina Esther Glass. She was born in Uzventis, Lithuania in 1856, and
married Abram Leib Aron, also >from Uzventis, in 1876. Her father was
Velvel/Vulf Glass. They also lived in Siauliai, Lithuania. In 1890
they were living in Riga, Latvia, where my grandmother was born. They
emigrated ~ 1900 and went to London for several years. >from there they
went to Philadelphia, PA, USA. I know she had a brother called Charlie
Glass when he lived in the US.

Through FTDNA testing of my Aunt, we have learned that she and our ancestor
Sheina Esther Glass has/had a rare maternal DNA of H1F, mostly found in
Finland. My Aunt has several matches >from Finland in the FTDNA Family Finder
database, with whom I have been corresponding. My Aunt also shows as 100%
Jewish in FTDNA. One match in particular seems to have some Jewish
heritage, going back in to the 1600's in Sweden, and the 1800's in Finland.
This Swedish/Finnish Jewish heritage comes as a complete surprise to us.

Although I have an extensive family tree for Abram Leib Aron (my
great-grandfather), I know very little about Sheina Esther Glass's family.
I haven't been able to find out much on the Litvak sites, so I'm wondering
if anyone can help me look for more sources. Thank you for any help you
can provide me. If it is of a personal nature regarding the family, please
respond privately. If it's general resources that would be helpful to
others, respond publicly, please.

Ages #lithuania

Judith Singer
 

I've learned to ignore differences in ages that are 5 years or less,
though it was confusing at first. I generally use the age >from the
earliest record I can find, as most likely to be accurate.

Two more reasons why birth dates vary:
as women got older, they tended to shave a few years off their age,
just as women in the U.S. did a few decades ago (one of my Charney
relatives managed to lose more than ten years that way, bit by bit);
and figuring an elderly person's birth date >from their death record
is not very reliable. Often, no one remembered the exact year, so the
age was simply guessed, and the guess was more likely to be in round
numbers such as 80 rather than 78 or 83. Also, I've noticed that the
age of an elderly person might be exaggerated; I think there was a
certain prestige to living to the age of 90, for example rather than a
"mere" 82.

How about Jedwabne? Although not in Lithuania, in 1891 it was part of
the Russian Empire. It is close enough for an emigrant to have taken a
ship either >from a Russian-Lithuanian port or the Hamburg one.

Internal Passports added to the ALD #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

6,871 Lithuania internal passports, 1919-1940, have been added to the
Litvak SIG All Lithuania Database (ALD) and can now be searched in the
database. You can do an enhanced search for a surname or, in the case
of a small town or village, do a town search as well.

Internal Passport records for the following towns, and/or districts, are
included.

Vilnius, Siauliai, Butrimonys, Panevezys, Eisiskes, Trakai, Pusalotas,
Budbergis, Vabalninkas, Salociai, Vaskai, Joniskelis, Nemunelio
Radviliskis, and Pasvalys.

All of these records are available on the Litvak SIG District Research
Group (DRG) individual web sites in which the town is located. This is the
first group of internal passport records for the city of Vilnius that have
been added to the ALD. They are also available on the Vilnius DRG web site.

In addition to the Vilnius DRG web site there is also a separate Litvak
SIG web site for Vilnius internal passports. An additional 10,691 Vilnius
internal passports are available on that web site that are not available
on the Vilnius DRG site and also not available on the ALD.

It is very advantageous to see the entire translated list, on a district
web site, that cannot be seen in the database. Many times, researchers have
found records of their ancestors by looking at the entire list after they
were unable to find those records by searching the database. Spelling
differences in the surname is generally the reason for the difference
in results.

If you are not already a member of a Litvak SIG DRG, you may decide to
become a member and gain access to thousands of records in addition to
the internal passport records. Go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute and
scroll down to District Research. Select the district of your choice and
key in 100 - the $sign is not needed. Feel free to use your credit card
as the site is secure.
