Hi,

I confess to be stupid. I visited the site, registered and then clicked
the appropriate button. What I get is a grid asking me to choose a year
which gives me a new grid which asks me to choose a month and date. So
how is this searchable? I did not see anything which asked me to enter
a name.
Please tell me what I am not seeing.

Thanks

Thanks to Randol Schoenberg's post of Peter Rohel's Vienna obituary collection, with the first "find" search I
found a notice (obit of Marcus LEDERER) which, along with a Google search (name, date) allowed me to open
the ceiling of my family tree by four generations and correct dates for those already in my database.
Many thanks, Randy!

Dear Sue
Shalom >from Israel
I wanted to read the matzevoth but the pictures are not clear.

Please take a new picture when your camera is parallel to the inscription..
Try to use a flash not in top of the camera but on the side [ 90 degrees] [left and then right side,] of both:
camera and inscription.

Try early in the morning or late in the evening when you have side illumination.
The carving of the lettes is not deep enough so illumination will help. [Or the best and expensive solution will
be an infra red picture]

If you are very careful, "re- paint" the letters but it must be done with a product that you can wash after the
picture was taken to return to "normality".

The same: but paint the borders, outside the letters if they are not clear enough.

A picture must be accurate because we use letters for dates in the matzevoth.

Kindly, Yehuda MATHOV

ADDENDA: In your case: ask grandchildren to use any photo shop program to
create more contrast.

Subject: [ukraine] Headstone Transcription

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before my grandmother Rose [nee Ingber] and family came to the US from
Kovel, she was married to a man named Jankel Rojzen (or Rozzen) and they had
a son Leiba who was born in 1921. Jankel was killed before the family left
Kovel and so my grandmother and her son (along with my grandmother's family)
came to the US. Unfortunately, the child was very ill on the passage and
died at Ellis Island in October 1921.

Through JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry, I located Leiba's
burial site at Mt. Judah in Queens, NY. At a recent visit to the cemetery I
photographed the headstone. As it is 90 years old, the writing is very
difficult to make out.

I am hoping someone can assist me and try and make out some/all of the
writing. I did discover, when photographing the headstone, that the
"negative" actually was more legible but I don't have the capabilities to
turn this into a negative. And even if I could, I do not read Hebrew.

The pictures are on ViewMate. There are three images >from different angles:

Relative (Lilly WIEGLER) Buried in Caracas Jewish Cemetery #latinamerica

Noam Silberberg <noam.silberberg@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am trying to locate a relative who is probably buried in one of the
Jewish cemeteries in Caracas.
Her name was Lilly WIEGLER, daughter of Naftali. she was probably born
before 1920 in Bukovina.
She lived in Caracas since the 50's or 60's and she must have passed
away in the past 10 years.

If there's anyone who lives in Caracas and could check this out for me
it would be great.
She was my grandmother's only cousin >from her father's side of the
family. Any information about her might help me a lot.
I would greatly appreciate any help at all.

Many thanks,
Noam Silberberg.

PERSKY/PERSKI family members, from Volozhin and the surrounding area to take the Y-Chromosome DNA test #dna

JLPerskie@...
 

Dear Genners - I am searching for PERSKY/PERSKI family members, >from
Volozhin and the surrounding area to take the Y-Chromosome DNA test for
37 markers. I am desperately searching for my great grandfather's, Eliezer
Mordechai ben Tsvi Persky's/Perski's siblings, cousins and parents, >from
about 1882 forward. I am looking for the family members who chose not to
emigrate and stayed in Volozhin and perished in the Shoah. Until 1920's,
Volozhin was the place in the Oshmiany district of former Vilno [Vilnius]
(not Minsk) gubernia. At present time it is in Belarus - just a stone's
throw away >from Minsk the new Volozhin, Minsk gubernia.

One of the ways I can do conduct this to search is to post on this
Discussion board. Another way is to have males, directly descended
from a Persky/Perski >from Volozhin, whose surname is Persky/Perski, do
take the Y-Chromosome Genealogical DNA test - 37 markers. The test costs
$149.00, bur since I am the administrator of the "Perski_Persky_Perskie
FamilyTree DNA Project Surname Group," I can probably get a lower price
for your test - 3 cheek swabs. My cousins and I are using Family Tree
DNA - very reputable.

My contact information is JLPerskie@AOL.com

I look forward to hearing fro you. Best, Jana Perskie

$149.00, bur since I am the administrator of the "Perski_Persky_Perskie
FamilyTree DNA Project Surname Group," I can probably get a lower price
for your test - 3 cheek swabs. My cousins and I are using Family Tree
DNA - very reputable.

My contact information is JLPerskie@AOL.com

I look forward to hearing fro you. Best, Jana Perskie

Re: More about using Y-DNA testing #dna

According to the web page at
http://nitro.biosci.arizona.edu/ftdna/12-0-0.html, there is a 50%
probability that 2 people who match at 12 markers are share a common
ancestor 14 or 15 generations ago, and a 95% probability at 60-70
generations. At the 25 match level, those numbers become 7 and ~30
generations. So these kinds of tests have a relatively small chance of
helping you find close cousins. You're much better off doing autosomal
testing, which is only good at finding close ancestors and lousy at
finding very distant ones.
