immense insight that DNA is adding to the field of genealogy.

inspires and enhances our genealogical explorations.
4) A "Shoah" track specifically to honor the memory of those who were
lost in the calamity of World War II.
5) A "Military" track -- With the US Naval Base San Diego just a few
blocks >from our convention, we hope to offer sessions which will
recognize military angles to Jewish genealogy, both >from the USA and
the rest of the world.
6) A "Latin America" track – Recognizing San Diego's proximity to
Central and South America and the need to find and understand our
relatives who live or lived south of the border.

All other subjects related to Jewish Genealogy and Genealogy in general,

Re: who are or where is Bialostoker #poland

Debbie Lifshitz
 

Shalom,
I have been following this thread for a while and fail to understand the point of the question:
If the reference is to a person, it is likely to differentiate him/her from others, and is a point of reference for purposes of identification: e.g.. "The Bialystoker came to visit last night" 
If it is in reference to an institution, it may refer to the  NYC Landmark  known as the Bialistoker Synagogue at 7 -11 Bialystoker Place (previously 7 Willett Street) on the Lower East Side, it was a very well known synagogue, is restored (1988), operative and there is information and photos on-line, including a Wikipedia article.
As a word, Bialystoker means of or from Bialystok, a city in North-East Poland . 
In order to be of further assistance, context is important.

Is Rabbinic SIG still sending messages.  I sent a message more than 24 hours ago but I did not get a SIG digest.

I wasn't paying attention if I received any recently other than my recent submission

ZOLDAN-WEISS, Satmar Rebbe, R. Yoel Teitlebaum, Yismach Moshe

David Zoldan
 

Subject – ZOLDAN-WEISS, Satmar Rebbe, R. Yoel Teitlebaum, Yismach Moshe

Hi,

My relative is Yaakov Shmuel Zoldan (circa 1850-60 until 1920).

He married Hendel Weiss who was known to be a “cousin” of the Satmar Rebbe, Rabbi Yoel Teitlebaum.

I have been researching together with some cousins who are descendants of Hendel Weiss Zoldan. We believe the connection can be traced back to the ancestor of Rabbi Yoel Teitlebaum who was named Tzvi Hirsch (Schiff) Teitlebaum.

From Tzvi Hirsh’s first wife was born a son named Rabbi Moshe Teitlebaum, well known as the “Yismach Moshe”

From Tzvi Hirsh’s second wife was a daughter named Sara who married Menachem Weiss. We believe it is likely that these are the grandparents or great grandparents of Hendel Weiss Zoldan.

Sara and Menachem Weiss had a son Efraim Weiss born 1812 and a son Herman Armin (Tzvi) as well as an additional child. We believe our Hendel Weiss Zoldan is likely a daughter (or granddaughter) of either Efraim Weiss or Herman Armin Tzvi Weiss or another unknown brother.

Does anybody have any additional information or any idea where to turn to regarding this Weiss family. We believe we have exhausted the well-known genealogy sites.

Thank you in advance for any lead or information,

David Zoldan

Re: New site/app for searching graves in Israel #israel

Odeda Zlotnick
 

I was able to find the graves of several of my family members.  I did put in the names that I was looking for in English, and it found them even though there was only a Hebrew name on the stone.  So, I would guess that the site does, at least,some conversion from English to Hebrew.j
That's interesting - it must be either name dependent, or cemetery dependent.
Both names I searched for yesterday were in the Kfar Saba cemetery.
I checked today :
Searched for my aunt who was buried in Haifa and has a Hebrew surname and give name with a single transliteration  - and found her grave.
Searched for my Dad, buried in Jerusalem but only found his grave after I misspelled the surname: "Zlotnik" worked, "Zlotnick" (correct speling for our family) did not.
I found a Koenig, in Jerusalem (not a family member),
But did not find any Mendelowitch, (of which there more than 250 in Hebrew) not matter how I tried to spell it in Latin letters.

Conclusion: It depends on the name - and how (or if) it was transliterated

Re: Paneveyzys. Lithuania.

Gordon Shalom,

A quick search of the ALD (All Lithuania Database) of LitvakSIG will show your grandparent's marriage from1897 record. If you continue to search you will probably find more family members.

Happy surfing!

Re: Date of Birth input into databases

nardir4@...
 

Thank you for the replies.My Grandfather we believe came from Vilnius.He left presumably to escape conscription in the Russian Army.He walked across Europe with his younger sister playing his violin on street corners to survive.At that time passports were not compulsory and it was easy to enter England without any real documentation.Which I am fairly certain he did.I wonder how many East European Jews were ever officially registered in any meaningful and traceable way.

I have done a Y-Dna test and know his haplogroup JM-172 and have identified chromosome sequences with a number of people,some suggesting we may have had a common great or great-great grandparent.I don’t know why,but sadly it is very rare for anyone to reply to emails for information.I keep hoping in this endless frustrating search that the missing piece of the Jig saw puzzle will just appear.This is not a topic for this forum.I merely mention it to say how grateful I am for the speedy replies to my request for help.


Family Names at end of e-mails?

Kenneth Packer
 

I noticed that the e-mails in this new format, which I like, do not have lists of family names that members are looking for.  Didn't we have that in the old format?  It was very helpful in finding possible cousin matches from people we have not talked to before.  Or am I confusing that with geographic sig e-mails?

Re: Aleph Yud - what does it mean?

Debbie Lifshitz
 

If the acronym was in the census, it stands for Eretz Yisrael, or Land of Israel.
During the British Mandate (1917 -1948), Jews were allowed to refer to Palestine as Eretz Yisrael. 1932 would fall into that period.
Hope this helps,

BADER Emma

Amit N
 

Dear all,

I am trying to crack open a black hole, with no luck so far.
My grandmother's uncle was married to a woman who according to the
family knowledge took her life at some point. I have succeeded to find
her maiden name this week. She was Dr. SPITZER Istvanne Szul BADER
Emma.
I can tell they were married before 1900, and that she died sometime
between 1910's-1930's. They lived in Sombor (Zombor in Hungarian,
nowadays Serbia).
I thought that such a case would appear on newspapers, but couldn't
find anything in Hungaricana.hu. I don't read Hungarian, so that's
another impediment...A JewishGen search also did not show results.
Do you have any idea on how to break this wall and find some
information about her and her untimely death?

Thank you all,
Amit Naor
