DNA Test Opens Up New Mysteries #dna

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Alice Collins Plebuch thought she would take a DNA test for "fun" and was
amazed what she found out. The test showed this Irish American Catholic
woman that she was half European Jewish, Middle Eastern and Eastern
European. While she asked Ancestry if they were wrong-they weren't the
results changed her life. And mother didn't have an affair! To read this
interesting story see:

Corrections re: Szmuel Boruch SHAPIRO of Poland #rabbinic

jslcalif
 

My Submission re Szmuel Boruch SHAPIRO contains the following two
important typos with respect to the century:

1. "[none other than Rav Moshe ABD Slavita] b. 1846
[- gateway to RASHI -]" should read "b. 1746"

2. "['Moshe SAPIRY'] b1844 or so" should read "b1744 or so".

Please forgive and correct with next digest, if possible.
Thanks,
Jill LIEBSTER

Seeking News of Lottie H? Schiffer, aged 3 1/2yrs old in 1936 in Praha #general

Ron Johnson <RonJohnson1951@...>
 

Hi everyone,

I found a lovely photograph of a young girl, Lottie H? Schiffer, aged 3 1/2yrs
old in 1936 in Praha. Her sister, Lilli, has written on the back in German. I
can provide a scan if necessary.

The photo was in an antique fair in Leicestershire, UK and I just could not
leave her there. I hope she survived and someone will know what happened to her
and her family.

Many thanks.

Re: First name BERNAT #france

Madeleine Isenberg
 

Looks like I missed responding to this earlier, but thought I would add my
two-cents worth. While not only have I seen this name in parts of Slovakia and
Poland, I also have them in my own ancestry.

For the most part, "my" Bernat/Bernad/Bernhard/etc. had the Hebrew name of Baruch.

In some instances such people were named Ber or the double Hebrew-Yiddish pairing
of Dov Ber. (Ber and Dov, both meaning Bear.)

Are files on home ownership available? #general

Newman Wendy <wsn99@...>
 

Dear Jenners,
I recently found the death certificate of my great grandfather in Pulawy; it
mentions that he was a homeowner. Family lore had it that my grandfather and
his family lived in that house. Now I am wondering if there are any records
available that would actually identify the address. It would be wonderful to
have that detailed info. I am headed to Pulawy in September; I know it won't
look the same, but would be great to be around the area.

Thanks for you help on this, in advance.
