The Y-DNA Genetic Signature of the Savran-Bendery Chassidic Dynasty #ukraine

Jeffrey Mark Paull
 

A new Y-DNA study, entitled: "The Y-DNA Genetic Signature of the
Savran-Bendery Chassidic Dynasty: Connecting to the Great Rabbinic Families
through Y-DNA," by Dr. Jeffrey Mark Paull and Dr. Jeffrey Briskman, is the
featured article in the new online issue of the Surname DNA Journal.

The study focuses on the Y-DNA pedigree of documented descendants of the
founders of the Savran-Bendery Chassidic dynasty, Rabbi Moshe Tzvi Giterman
of Savran, Ukraine, and his brother, Rabbi Aryeh Leib Wertheim of Bendery,
Bessarabia (now Bender, Moldova). Together, they founded one of the most
prominent Chassidic dynasties to emerge >from the Russian Empire during the
19th century.

The study presents the genealogical and genetic data that characterize this
rabbinic lineage, and by which its descendants may be identified, thereby
providing many Ashkenazi Jews with the essential genealogical and genetic
information necessary to bridge the gaps in their own paper trails, and
discover their lost heritage.

"The Y-DNA Genetic Signature of the Savran-Bendery Chassidic Dynasty" may be

New JewishGen Success Stories ! #ukraine

Phyllis Kramer
 

We present four new inspiring stories in the latest issue of
JewishGen's SUCCESS! STORIES webzine. You can access these stories
from the "About Us" button on our website or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen/testimonials/index.htm

Peter Vanlaw learned that his family was Jewish when he was 51 years
old. Through a connection he makes via JewishGen's Family Finder, he
learns about the family that had been kept a secret >from him all those
years.

Stella Saperstein knew nothing about her American family while she was
growing up in the former Soviet Union. After several unsuccessful
research efforts, she connects with her previously unknown cousin
through JewishGen's Family Finder.

Carol Clingan obtains a copy of Sarah Cohen's obituary that lists two
surviving sons. She knew of one of the sons, but who was Sam Bloom?
She contacts another researcher who listed the Bloom name in
JewishGen's Family Finder. It turns out he has the other piece of the
puzzle!

Robin Koerner updates her story >from January 2015, telling us of the
Maniches family reunion in Montevideo, Uruguay. It was more than 100
years ago when the ancestors of these families had been together in
Krynki, Poland. Now a connection through JewishGen's Family Finder
brings them together.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel,
Editor and Anna Blanchard, Webmaster. We hope you will be inspired by
these stories and we encourage you to submit your own success stories

Newark, NJ Death Record from 1950's #general

Moishe Miller
 

Dear Group,

I am trying to locate the death record and tombstone of Zlate ROSEN of
Radwanitz & Siemiatycze, Belarus and after the 1920's, of the the Bronx.
The 1930 Bronx census shows her immigration as 1926 and her name as
Lottie, with her children Henry and Edith. I have not found her arrival
manifest. Her husband was Abraham Isaac ROZIN and he passed away in
Belarus (lived c1858 - c1910). After her children married and she was
older, sometime in the late 1930's, she moved in with her daughter Edith
Panken, in Newark, NJ. Later in life Zlate lost her sight. We know she
passed away about 1950 at around the age of 90 and her yahrtzeit is Elul
26.

Are there any online resources or indexes that might have her date of
passing and the cemetery location of her final resting place?

(Iraq) June 1-2 is 74th Anniversary of Farhud- the Pogrom in Baghdad Iraq #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Today is the 74th anniversary of the Farhud in Baghdad Iraq -the pogrom-or
the beginning of the end of the Jewish community in Iraq. Following the
British victory in the Anglo- Iraqi war (The British campaign against the
rebel government of Rashid Ali in the Kingdom of Iraq during the Second
World War. Operations lasted >from 2 to 31 May 1941.) The riots occurred
following the pro-Nazi regime of Rashid Ali. Over 180 Jews were killed and
1,000 injured and 300-400 non-Jewish rioters were killed. Looting occurred
and over 900 Jewish homes were destroyed. It is alleged that the violence
occurred that the Jews helped the Brits defeat Rashid Ali. The Farhud
occurred during the holiday of Shavout.

According to the United States Holocaust Museum in the early 1940's about 3
percent of the Iraqi population was Jewish-135,000 people with 90,000 living
in Baghdad, 10,000 living in Basra and the remainder in small towns and
villages dispersed throughout Iraq. Jews had lived in Iraq since the 6th
century BCE. To read more about this see:

The Forward has an article reprinted >from ten years ago (as the article
talks about 64 years ago) on the Iraqi pogrom which may be read at:

report process, formatting, source and citation skills. It includes
how to create and save media files, graphs and charts. In other
words: Putting it All Together

This class will consider the various ways of packaging your research,
matching your material to your audience and figuring out what to

in the following format...."(will it be printed, bound, electronic,
one copy, multiple copies etc.)
3. If you have special needs, missing data, constrictions, obstacles
now is the time to think them through. Write a paragraph that helps
anticipate some of the parameters of your project. For example, I am
waiting for data from....my files are in disarray, I have sources
for some of my data but not all of it, I have large media files that
I want to use (etc.) I am collaborating with...and want to include

I have just returned >from a few days in Budapest, where a branch of my
Galitzianer family settled in the 1880s and met up with some of their

I have used the Hungarian database on JewishGen.

Can anyone suggest any online sources, such as business directories,
for tracing opticians in Budapest c1880s-1930s, called Tropp or
Bienenstock?

Kutno Death Records/Jewish Cemetery #general

Hi all,

My grandfather was born and raised in Kutno, and according to him, his
maternal grandparents both died at quite a young age, leaving young
children who were raised by their mother's family. I can only presume
this happened in the early 20th century.

However I couldn't find any death record for that incident. I wonder
now if there was a Jewish cemetery in Kutno, and whether anything of
it survived? Perhaps they were buried there.

If you know anything about that or how can I continue this search, please help.

Best Regards,

(US): Social Security Agency: are other records available? #general

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Genners,

We all know that we can obtain a copy of a deceased person's SS-5
(social security application form) but I wonder if the SSA has any
other documents and are these also accessible?

Let me explain, I am assisting a friend in researching her family but
even her father is a huge stumbling block as nothing is known about
him. (He really covered his tracks.) We have his SS-5 form but we
don't believe the names he provided for his parents (my friend never
knew her grandparents, they supposedly died before she was born.) We
don't believe his year of birth (1927) nor where he was born
(California), nothing is showing up in the usual searches one makes.

Hence my reasoning is, when he applied for his SS-5 (in 1951) what
documents did he have to provide (if any) to prove who he was, and
did the SSA make and keep copies? I'm thinking he may have had to
bring in his birth certificate? If he did, this is obviously
something that he couldn't have faked (well, I hope not).

If anyone has had any success in obtaining any documents >from the SSA
other than retrieving the SS-5 please let me know off-line.

Thanks

Jeremy
