Re: GENI family trees #general

Martin Miller
 

GENI is only the latest in a string of these on-line ventures to contribute to what
I call a genealogical Tower of Babel. Once you share anything with anyone you lose
control. In my case it happened when a relative submitted all my research to that
outfit that asked for donations of family trees and sold them on CDs. The version
of the tree at that point had a serious error, and there was no way I could change
what he uploaded any more than I could ask for all the paper and electronic copies
I had distributed. Then that company was absorbed by another who dumped the
contents of those CDs on their site without even listing the submitter. It's been a
headache ever since, and more than one person isn't talking to me anymore.

Probably a dozen of our relative started trees on GENI using the data it has taken
me twenty years to collect. I have done my best to mitigate any damage by
correcting when I can, even signed up for the paid subscription. I have been able
to contact more living relatives in a week than I could in a year probably. These
are branches I knew about but couldn't find. And if you find a relative in a tree
submitted by someone on another line, you have another avenue of contact. Not
documentation, but contacts.

What do they say? Make lemonade?

Wosk family from Philadelphiya Do you recognize #poland

Raanan Wlosko
 

Hello

Can anyone identify the People in the pictures?

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=13749

To my best knowledge the picture is of Gersshon Wosk, his wife, sons
and daughters in low. Gershon Wosk was born circa 1890 in preznitsh
(Poland), immigrated to the U.S. circa 1912 and apparently lived in
Philadelphia. Contact with him lost in the early 50's. Gershon Wosk
was my paternal GM's uncle.

Thank you for your help

Trying to locate Abram Kotlyar family 1991 Petach Tikvah #ukraine

shermanr@...
 

After a translation of Tashkent documents I have discovered that Abram
Kotlyar b 1926 in Bershad son of Feygl and Kiva Kotlyar of Bershad survived
Shoah. His sister Bronya b 1930 and parents also survived in Tashkent.

Abram made testimony at Yad Vashem for his family members including his
grandfather Srul (Israel) Lukashevsky. Abram made this testimony in Israel
in 1991. At that time he was living in Petach Tikvah.

Any one knowing of Abram or his family please contact me. I have a family
photo of the entire Bershad family including Abram as a child.

Re: Problems with Geni #general

Daniel Horowitz <daniel@...>
 

Hi all,

I've been reading all your comments about Geni and now I have to agree
with Julian >from Kfar Saba, Israel when he says "I think you are all
looking at this site in the wrong way."

The main purpose of Geni is to create one big tree of the whole world.
That means that everybody (including non-genealogists) can enter
information and merge with your tree, which then is not *your* tree any
more.

When Gina says "it's like Facebook," she is right. Everybody can find a
lot of relatives on Facebook, but it doesn't mean you are going to (or
that you should) give away all your years of research or contaminate
your tree with useless and nonsensical information or, even
worse,permit other people to manage *your* tree.

If you are looking to publish your tree with 100% confidence in privacy
matters, plus connect with previously unknown relatives and *possibly*
merge information into *your* tree, while keeping your tree completely
separate >from the other one and keeping "complete control* of *your*
information, your visitors, your invited family members and
collaboration, I strongly recommend that you use MyHeritage.com (either
directly online or with their free software Family Tree Builder 4.0).
It is silly to have one *official* or *real* tree in your own computer
and have other *problems* on the net, over which you have no control.

Also, while there are other sites that do allow you to publish and
maintain privacy controls, those other sites do not perform automatic
matching detection (SmartMatch) with more than 400 million profiles in 9
million family trees.

Give it a try, I'm sure you won't regret it and will begin to find new
information in a short time.

Blumkin/Blyumkin from Gomel, Russia/Belarus #general

Katie Knostman
 

I am looking for information about the Russian roots of the Blumkin
side of my family. My great-grandfather, Joseph (Jasel) Blumkin immigrated
from Gomel, Russia to the USA in 1912. His sisters, Rose Blumkin Gluskin and
Fannie Blumkin Olsen, also immigrated to the USA. Joseph reported a
brother named Solman as his nearest relative in Russia on his immigration
ship manifest in 1912. The parents of Joseph, Rose, Fannie and Solman
are believed to have been Arthur Blumkin and Edith Selma (anglicized names).

Joseph never commented on the fate of his brother, Solman. I found a
testimonial in Yad Vashem for a Zalman Blyumkin of Gomel, son of Aharon,
with an 1885 year of birth (only two years after Joseph). I would like to
know if this is the brother of my great-grandfather. The testimonial was
made by his nephew, Kim Shustin, in 1996. The Zalman Blyumkin listed in
Yad Vashem had a wife named Sosya and daughters named Fanya and Sima,
all of which perished in the Holocaust.

Please contact me if any of these names are familiar.

Sincerely,

Katie Brownstein Knostman

Other surnames I am researching: Brownstein/Bronstein of Rezina,
Romania/Moldova; Serlin/Serling of Bialystok, Russia/Poland; Golinsky/Galinsky
of Svisloch or Bialystok, Poland/Russia; Siroka of Russia/Poland;
Grossman of Dubasari, Russia/Moldova; Serby of Sverdlovsk, Russia.
