If you go to the JewishGen.org website there are 2 info files. One on finding a genealogy researcher and one on hiring a researcher.

Do I need a dna test even do we're blood line or lineage of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? And we know who we are even our neighbours knows it. I think those who are not sure about there ancestry needs dna test.


(US-PA) October 27 is One Year Anniversary of Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting: Synagogue to be Center for Jewish Life in US

A memorial for the victims of the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh. (Hane Grace Yagel)

 

October 27 will be one year since the worst anti-Semitic act of violence in the United States: The Pittsburgh shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue OrL’Simcha and two other synagogues in the same building. The shooting left 11 worshippers dead. It has been announced that the synagogue can no longer be a place for worship and has never reopened. However, at Yom Kippur services it was announced that it will reopen as a “center for Jewish life in the United States.”  The statement may be read at:

Until then services for Tree of Life Synagogue OrL’Simcha will continue to be held at Rodef Shalom’s Levy Hall in the Oakland neighbored of Pittsburgh.

I copied and pasted the URL into FireFox, and got several citations, the second being the following (when clicking on that, it brings up the USHMM database):

Thank you, Peter Lande, for your frequent updates from the USHMM. I have a question regarding the last paragraph in your latest message about the material that cannot be publicly posted. Since not all of us can visit the museum in the near future, is it possible to know what organizations provided the restricted data? For people who are looking for information about lost relatives, perhaps there is a way to approach them directly and ask for look-ups or help of that sort.
Thanks again,

Re: Polish citizenship #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

While Polish residence may be necessary to obtain the legalized copies of records
necessary for the formal application, that is a final step in the process and research
into the survival and availability of records and eligibility for citizenship are by far the
most important initial steps to be taken.

Where a Polish address is needed, JRI-Poland is pleased to be able to provide that 
service along with research of both our online and offline data for the source of vital
records or other sources that may be acceptable in place of vital records that may
not have survived.  And, as mentioned in my earlier post, we are also able to suggest
companies who provide the application service with reasonable costs.

Searching for Descendants of Karoline (Kranz) Roll or later Heine in Bucharest #romania

Ilana Grallert
 

Hi,
I have hit a wall in my search for descendants of Karoline Kranz who was born in Czernowitz on March 7, 1906. She married Jacob Roll in Czernowitz in 1927. Jacob died  in 1933 and she married Herbert Armin Heine in 1936. Karoline died in Czernowitz in 1987. She had a daughter Erica born in 1928 in Czernowitz who died in 1987 in Bucharest. I believe that there are still children of hers in Bucharest. Erica married  Armand Penchas. I do not speak Romanian and so I am having a hard time searching in Bucharest and in Czernowitz after it became part of Romania and today is Ukrainian. 
I would be grateful for any lead.

Not always Ellis Island

My Messing family came in through Ellis Island, but I could never find my grandfather, Jacob.  I knew he came to the U.S.; I even had newspaper articles reporting his suicide in Central Park!  

But by sheer accident, I found him coming in in Galveston,TX.

My message:  don't overlook the other ports of entry.

Re: Suggestion regarding Family Finder

Sarah L Meyer
 

I have my own website - and it will be around as long as I am, but I have changed hosts and the name.  As I look at TuviabenAvrahamAharonvSimaRivka I still don't have a complete URL, as I don't know whether it is .org,.com. .net and it is also long and complex with those capital letters - and likely to be misspelled.
Why not just add the possibility of a real link here, something that could be done once and would apply to all your entries.  Yes I should put an updated Gedcom on FTJP, but be aware that people still try to contact you for information- so this would not help them after you have passed away.  BTW my current site is https://sarahsgenies.com

Re: Thank you To Nu? What's Nu? A search tip and A Uruguay research request re GOLDSHMIDT

Karen Lukeman
 

Hi, 

We took a wonderful Jewish tour of Montevideo with Fanny Margolis earlier this year. Fanny is very well connected with the Jewish community and enabled us to enjoy an oneg at a Synagogue. I'm sure that she will be able to provide information to you. Her email address is info@...  and her website is  http://www.jewishtours.com.uy/site/. 

I hope that this helps.  My paternal grandmother was also a Goldschmitt with relatives in Bakshty and Ivye. I've done the following DNA tests:  23andme, FTDNA, MyHeritage and Gedmatch. My sister Nadine did the Ancestry DNA test.

Finding a Genealogist

Dan Oren
 

I "do" my own genealogy and have many friends in our genealogy world, but have a friend who does NOT want to do the work herself and is looking to hire a genealogist specializing in American and Eastern European Jewish roots. Can any of you personally recommend someone available for hire and let me know how they charge for their services. Please reply privately.
Thank you,

Rogelio De los Santos Tandoc Jr.
 

My mother told me and brothers about our great grandfather and his seblings were Jews who escaped from Spain during 1800s because of great persecution. During her funeral service my uncle reminded me about my great grandfather. Three years later my uncle died too, it's because were been told by our ancestors about our lineage, are we also Jews?


Passage Libau, Latvia to Jaffa, Palestine

Roberta Lipitz
 

My grandmother Fanny (maiden name Shore) born Libau 1888-1890.  Looking for birth certificate and possibly travel papers to Jaffa.  Am not sure of dates of travel and arrival and all I have is ship's manifest when she, her father and younger sister, arrived to Ellis Island in 1903.  I know that this is asking for a lot but have hit the "brick wall."  I do know through IGRA that these were the Ottoman Empire period and travel documents were difficult to find.

Thanks in advance for any help and/or advice.

Sincerely,
Roberta Lipitz
