PARNES/PARNAS Rabbinic Family #rabbinic

panthersfan27@...
 

Hi everyone,

I'm interested in finding out information concerning the PARNES/PARNAS
rabbinic family, originally of Dubno. Specifically, I am looking for
information concering R' Aryeh Leib PARNAS, the son of R' Hayyim
Nachman PARNAS of Vilna. The last bit of information I got on him was
that R' Aryeh was born circa 1820, which would fit my ancestor, R'
Aryeh PARNES's approximate birthdate (based on his son Moshe Yaacov
PARNESS who was born somewhere between 1841 and 1846 going off Moshe's
1911 England census record and his tombstone in England). I am aware
that R' Aryeh Leib PARNAS had a brother named R' Yaacov Moshe PARNAS
which is driving my strong suspicions of a connection to this family.

I also have a picture of Moshe Yaacov's tombstone that I am unsure as
to the significance. The style of the epitaph is a poem based off the
letters of his name. In my limited experience, I have only seen this on
the tombstones of prominent Jews or their descendants. If someone could
clarify this for me, I would be most appreciative. You can see the
tombstone here:

Thank you so much for any help you can provide.

Silver, daughter of Tillie Bloch, daughter of Getzel Bloch ( a descendant of
the Vilna Gaon).

Hillel Medalie was a son of Rabbi Shemarya Yehudah Leib Medalie of Moscow.

A brother of Hillel, Aharon Shlomo (1897-1943) was a son-in-law of Rabbi
Avraham Chaim Halevi Katzenellenbogen whose wife Perel was a daughter of
Rabbi Eliyahu Barukh Kamai, Rosh Yeshiva of Mir ( a descendant of Rabbi
Avraham Ragoler, brother of the Vilna Gaon).

tracing paternal ancestral lines for women #dna

Jean-Pierre Stroweis
 

Let me ask a beginner question.

Men can trace their paternal genetic line via the the Y chromosome
and their maternal genetic line via the Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA).

Women can also trace their maternal genetic line via the Mitochondrial
DNA (mtDNA).

Is there any way for women to trace their paternal ancestral line
(apart >from tracing the paternal line of their brothers) ?

Anna Reuter <anna94306@...>
 

Dear Genners:

Bonnie Mogelever Pollack asked about Jewish Migration ending in Riga, Latvia for
her Husband's origins.

YIVO Institute has an Exhibit online showing patterns of Migration for Jews >from
950 AD to modern times.

Go to:
http://epyc.yivo.org/home.php "Click" on TImeline "Click" on Maps

Also Bonnie's husband could submit a DNA sample to determine his ethnic origins.
Do a Google Search on DNA and ethnic origins. There are several sites that do this
for a fee.
