Do you have any experience with Geno 2.0 results showing they
could change, with time? The Genographic web site notes that
the product is Geno 2.0 Beta.

What situations might produce changes in reported individual
test results as accessed on-line, over time, for both autosomal-
derived ethnic ancestral groups indicated by the sample as well
as their percent contributions? Has this occurred more than once
time for you?

Have you had any feedback >from your inquiries to National
Geographic about such changes?

Thanks.

The Invisible Tatoo, a remarkable story of discovery and survival #ukraine

Michael Goldstein
 

I thought that this is worth sharing with all our Jewish Genealogy Friends.
In her Huffington Post article published yesterday, Marisa Fox writes,
"My mother, who's been dead for almost 20 years, told me a fictionalized
account of her childhood."

Marisa traces how she discovered her mother's true identity and the
shocking real story of her mother's hidden wartime experience and survival.

Three well-known members of our Jewish genealogical community
play key roles in helping Marisa uncover the truth of how her mother
spent the war years in the Gabersdorf slave labor camp, how her
words in a friend's secret diary - written in the camp - so dramatically
describe the despair of their lives and their hopes for survival.

Galician Genealogy Lecture at the Wiener Library - London - May 7, 2013 #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

If you live in the United Kingdom and are interested in Galician research -- or are
curious about how cadastral maps, landowner, tax and voter records can be used as
an adjunct to vital records--consider attending my presentation in London on May 7:

"Unique & Unusual Resources in Galician Genealogy"

Tuesday, 7 May 2013 Time: 6.30pm
Location: The Wiener Library, 29 Russell Square, London, England

This presentation will cover the wealth of documents useful for genealogists, >from
the late 1700s through the interwar years, for Galicia (a former province of the
Austrian Empire, today eastern Poland and western Ukraine) to be found in
repositories in Austria andUkraine. Covered will be Lviv family registration books,
1920s and 30s voter lists, Jewish taxpayer and student records, plus magnate
landowner records (like a 1801 list of "Jewish Tavern Owners in Kalusz.") Take a
tour of the Galician holdings in the Vienna State Archives, including kahal and
court cases and province-wide inventories listing rabbis and teachers assigned to
Jewish schools in every shtetl in 1788 =96 the point when Jews adopted surnames.
Learn about cadastral (property) maps, Holocaust-era census records and passport
applications >from Stanislawow and Lviv and come away with innovative ideas about
how to approach your family research. Many of these records are now searchable
online, so we'll close with information on searching on the All Galicia Database
and the Gesher Galicia inventory.

Admission is free, but booking is essential as space is very limited.

Re: Kupel, Ukraine vs. Kopyl, Belarus - two different places #belarus

hfreedm@...
 

I think it more likely that your town was in Volhynia, but only on the
basis of the transcription of the name.

My great-grandparents were >from Kopyl, Belarus. In Yiddish, the town
was called "Kapulye" and its denizens were "Kapulyer." For example,
the synagogue that was composed mostly of lantsmen in Omaha, Nebraska
was called the "Kapulyer shul." It is unlikely that somebody
rendering "Kapulyer" into English would omit the "y" or would
transcribe "Ka" as "Ki" and "pul" as "pil." However, the
pronunciation of a written "u" as a spoken "i" (e.g. kugel and kigel)
was frequent in Volhynia, which makes the change >from Kupiler to
Kipiler quite conceivable.

Of course, I'm not an expert on Yiddish pronunciation, and,
admittedly, English renderings of towns were all over the place. But
I would just put the odds on Volhynia.

All the best,

Surviving Twin searches for twin brother with Auschwitz tattoo A7734 #austria-czech

Marshall Katz
 

Holocaust survivor, Menachem BODNER, was just four years old when he was
liberated in 1945 >from Auschwitz concentration camp. Now 72, retired, and
living in Israel, Menachem is on a quest to locate his identical twin
brother, last seen at Auschwitz, when the two were separated just 2 days
before liberation.

In May 1944, Menachem and his identical twin brother were transported to
Auschwitz, two months prior to their 4th birthday. Being identical twins,
they were selected and became objects of criminal medical experiments.
Luckily, both survived the war, however, became separated.

One twin was adopted and given a new name, Menachem BODNER. The other
twin was adopted and taken to the USA. Maybe he too changed his name,
maybe
even changed his religion---but the only definite link between them is the
number tattooed on their arm.

For the next 67 years, Menachem had no knowledge about his family or twin
brother---knowing only his own Auschwitz tattoo on his arm, which was
A7733.

Red Cross records that were located, show Menachem's brother was alive two
weeks after Auschwitz was liberated, giving him hope that he was still
alive and out there to be found and reunited with him. Also, >from the Red
Cross list, Menachem learned his real name was: GOTTESMAN, Elias.

from the Red Cross records:
A-7733 GOTTESMAN, Elias
A-7734 GOTTESMAN, Jeno

Jeno, with the number A7734 tattooed on his arm, may be your neighbor, a
friend, or even a relative.

We ask that you pass this to appear in your synagogue newsletter, local
newspaper and local television stations to ensure widest dissemination.
