IGRA - The next generation of genealogy in Israel is here! #yizkorbooks

Jean-Pierre Stroweis
 

Dear researchers,

The next generation of genealogy in Israel is here!
To welcome 2012 we are happy to announce the launch of activities for the
Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA). IGRA is bringing new
technology, new energy and new excitement to genealogy in Israel.
We are dedicated to being completely open to all groups within Israel and
outside of Israel. We welcome everyone interested in genealogy. One of our
driving forces is to open up as many possible data sources as we can to the
public.
We strive to use the latest technologies to reach the most people we can
with our content. Our website can be accessed at www.genealogy.org.il . The
center of the organization will be this web site, which will host videos,
webinars, articles on genealogy, research guides, our calendar of events and
more. The website is in English but "multi-lingual" with a translation
option into several additional languages.
Please visit the website and register (free) in order to receive increased
access, to stay informed on everything going on and to allow us to be in
contact with you about our activities.
There are many benefits of membership as well and we hope you will consider
joining us in this exciting endeavor.

On the behalf of IGRA,
Jean-Pierre Stroweis

Question about 1/2 second cousins #dna

Sarah L Meyer
 

Genners,
I am fairly new to DNA testing. In April I did the family finder test
and my mtDNA. After learning that my DNA confirmed that I was 100% Jewish
and that I had a large number of matches, I started testing cousins to try
to triangulate my results (so that I could figure out which matches came
from which lines). I then tested my second cousin on my father's side and
our match came out where it should. Because one of my second cousins once
removed is elderly and not in good health, I tested him next, and the
suggested relationship was "distant" cousin according to family tree DNA. I
ran the same data through GEDMATCH.com and the suggested relationship (using
their defaults) was 3.5 generations to MRCA (most recent common ancestor) -
which would be consistent with second cousin once removed. It appears that
we may only be related in one way, which means that the correction factor
for inbred populations - lost a true relationship (I think that this is what
would be called a type I error). This extra distance has not helped with
the triangulation.

In particular I am a suspected member of a Rabbinical family >from my family
finder results (until now I have had no Rabbinical ties in the 40+ years of
paper trail genealogy). My grandmother apparently told my mother that she
had "Yichus" but no one ever knew how). I am especially interested in which
line this Rabbinical family may come through, and my grandmother is my
leading candidate.

Now my paternal grandmother was the only child of a widow who married a
widower, there are descendants of her half siblings, who would be my 1/2
second cousins. Given the problems that showed up when I tested my second
cousin once removed, is it worth it to consider testing them to help
triangulate? I would be able to find one male 1/2 second cousin on her
father's side and a female 1/2 second cousin on her mother's side.

I am interested in what your thoughts are about this. I have not contacted
these cousins yet, because I don't know if it would be worthwhile.

Help with translations from Hebrew, German, and Russian & a postmark from Romania #romania

The travel diary Lilian Spiwak, aged 16, kept when her father, Abram, took her to
visit his family in Romania has just been found. As I work with it, I'm finding
pages I cannot decipher on my own. I would be very grateful for help with
translations and interpretations of several pages of the diary inscribed by
relatives and friends. There is also an envelope sent to Lil â?? her uncle,
Leizer Vollman, in Capresti, which appears to have take two months to arrive.

Thank you for your help.
