Which town is this? #lithuania

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I'm researching a family, and on their US naturalization papers, it
states that they came >from Vilinius. I then found an 1888 revision
list in the litvaksig database for the family, headed by Iudel Geller,
son of Faivish, and it states that the family lived in the village of
"Dovborishki". The closest match that I could find for that name, is
Dauburaičiai, a town 85 miles NW of Vilinius.

But I have now just obtained an 1934 obituary for one of the family
members in America, and it states that they were >from "Hushnich,
Russia". Of course, I put little faith in what is in obituaries, but I
am curious if anybody recognizes that name. I haven't been able to
find any such town in the Gazetteer. Thanks. - Mark

FTDNA Family Finder #dna

David Goldman
 

Hi, everybody I wish the Family Finder could explain better how their
system works. I contacted some of the 2nd-3rd cousin matches, but as
happened with the original FTDNA matches nothing "matches," not names, not
towns.
When I see results with the words 2nd-3rd cousins and looks like high
Centimorgans to segments I assumed it falls into place as it does in
Ancestry. I am told that there are distortions or exaggerations in the
Family Finder results, yet on the other hand we know that "DNA doesn't lie."
So as of right now I am a bit stumped.

Re: Naming a son after a living father #general

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

Have you found any indication of their "Hebrew" (Yiddish/ religious) names?
Look for Ketubot, getim, etc. Check their gravestones and see what those say.
The street/secular name could be the same as long as the Hebrew name was
different.

was Orthodox and kept kosher, even in the U.S.

Yerichem HaKohen and his son Shabsa from Dubossary, now in Moldova #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

I am writing to two SIGs in a same time.

My great grandfather Shabsa Kogan (Kohen) according to my family information was a rabbi and
also a sales person.. He was born on September 10, 1856, in Kaushany or Dubossary, and died in
1940 in Kaushany. According to the birth record of his daughter Brukhe he was a petty bourgeois,
registered in Dubossary.

About his father Irihem I know >from the Dubossary Yizkor book, that he was a scholar and a rabbi,
wrote many books. Here are two pages about him at the Yizkor book:
https://www.dropbox.com/home/zPersonal/MyFamily?preview=0306-SkypewMother.gif
https://www.dropbox.com/home/zPersonal/MyFamily?preview=0307.gif

Here is translation of it into English:
https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Dubossary/dub298.html

It seems that the author of this article Shabtai Kardonsky is a relative pf mine, and if anyone know
his decendents, please let me know. Kardonsky's wife is sister or daughter of my great grand
father Shabtai.

Here is a little more about Irikhem >from my second cousin Alexander Kogan >from Jerusalem.
https://www.dropbox.com/home/zPersonal/MyFamily/z_Research/NewResearch?preview=RabbiYeruham.docx

I also know that Alexander Kogan >from Jerusalem collected at the archives books and articles
written by Irikhem Kohen.

Here are photos of Shabsa and Irikhem:
Shabsa Kohen (my great grandfather) and his father, Irihem HaCohen
https://www.dropbox.com/home/zPersonal/MyFamily?preview=shabsa-Irikhem.jpg

Do you see many similarities in their faces?

Shabse had 8 children, among them my grandmother Elka, buried in Kishinev in 1969. I have
information about many of his children.

If anything here looks familiar to you, please let me know.

All the best,
Have a great year.

Shabbat Shalom,
Yefim Kogan
born in Kishinev

Akiber EGER birthday #hungary

Traude Triebel
 

The Austrian Jewish Museum in Eisenstadt made a new hot announcement!

Sensational discovery! The Torah wimpel for the famous Rabbi Akiba Eger - we
can ultimately prove that he was born on 1 Cheshvan 522 = 29 October 1761
(and NOT as most sources claim on 8 November).
His brother Samuel was not born in 1755, but - as we reed in the Pinkas MILA
(circumcision register, Mohel book) - in 1762!

It might switch to Beryl, Barnett, Bernard, Barnard, as my Ber did. My Ber's
