It might switch to Beryl, Barnett, Bernard, Barnard, as my Ber did. My Ber's
Hebrew name was Dov Ber, so he also used variations for Dov.

I have an Ellis Island manifest showing Ber SARAPIN arriving in 1913 from
Gorodok, Russia. He apparently went to my grandfather, Charles SARAPIN.

I can find no other record for this person.

What name might "BER" have been transformed to?

Searching for Michael Anthony PICARD #germany

Ruth & Bruce Lynn <lynn33@...>
 

Hello,

I’msearching for a “lost” cousin, Michael Anthony PICARD, who was born
in England in 1947. His parents were Claus Wolfgang PICARD and (Hilde)
Inge(borg) GROSSMAN, both born in Berlin.

They lived in Welwyn Gardens and Bramley, Leeds, UK in the 1950s.
Claus’s parents (Michael Anthony’s grandparents), Dr. Ernst Jacob PICARD
and (Minna) Edith Eva RUSS, lived in London in the 1950s. Inge’s parents,
Dr. Fritz GROSSMAN and Gertrud Paula FRANK, lived in New York City.
Claus’s brother, Heinz Hellmuth PICARD, lived in Tel Aviv. Inge’s
brothers Herbert Otto GROSSMAN and Helmut/Henry GROSSMAN, lived in
Newark, NJ and Englewood, NJ.

Michael’s grandparents, Dr. Ernst Jacob PICARD and (Minna) Edith
Eva RUSS, escaped >from Berlin to Palestine in 1935, and later moved to
England. Edith was my father’s cousin. What she never knew was
that her sister, Charlotte Henriette RUSS HEILFRON, managed to escape
from Berlin to Ireland, where she and her family lived out their lives
in Dublin. Their only living brother, (Wolfgang) Guenter RUSS,
committed suicide during or after his 1943 deportation >from Berlin.
Each sister thought that she was the only surviving family member.

I have recently re-connected with Charlotte’s granddaughter in
Ireland. She had no idea that she had close cousins in the UK and the
US. But I have been unable to trace Michael Anthony PICARD, other than
two passenger records for 1947 and 1951 voyages >from England, with his
mother, to visit her parents in New York.

If this story, or any of these names sound familiar to you, please reply
privately.

Thanks very much. Ruth Nadelman Lynn, Lexington, MA lynn33@rcn.com

Re: DNA and Rabbinical Descent #rabbinic

Chaim Freedman writes:

In response to Phillip Minden, yes it is possible to prove descent
from people who lived hundreds of years ago, as explained in my article at
http://eliyahusbranches.blogspot.com/2018/08/genetic-master-list-for-relatives-of.html
That is using a full autosomal test, not just Y chromosome, and in
combination with the "Paper Trail".

The cited article shows DNA connections for people who have demonstrated
ancestral connections to the KATZENELLENBOGEN families that Chaim
documented.

I have traced my ancestry back between four and nine generations, depending
on the branch, and my paper trail includes the names of 110 direct
ancestors. One of my long standing goals has been to find connections to
the major rabbinic lines, but I have not been successful. I bought the
first edition of "The Unbroken Chain" and have searched the online indexes
of subsequent editions, with no connections apparent.

It is clear that all Jews of Ashkenazi descent have noted rabbis somewhere
in our ancestry, but my research hasn't reached back far enough. Is there
something that I have overlooked?
