Hamaui in Argentina ?

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

HI Ruben, 

Wonder if you can direct me to a source other than CEMLA, for locating info on an uncle. 


BTW, my maternal Weiser line is from Buczacz and Tarnopol.

Apotheker family in USA

Neil Rosenstein
 

Trying to make contact with descendants of this family which traces
back to Landau rabbinical family of Sanz. One - Rabbi Aryey Leib
Aoptheker lived in New York (1846-1942). On Kevarim.com there for him
was a posting by David Apotheker of Stoughton, MA. Any contact
information would be appreciated.

Deep ancestry of the Maharal

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

On Geni, I am proposing to sever the deep ancestry of the Maharal, which appears to be invented and without any reasonable source. I am sure people will be upset, but if you disagree, please follow the discussion at https://www.geni.com/discussions/194554 and add some sources to the profiles.

To be clear, I am proposing to sever the Maharal's maternal grandfather Chaim from his father.

Thank you for noting Germany's ongoing reconciliation efforts.

DNA

Rosalind Finkelstein
 

I had my DNA tested at My Heritage and was informed that I am a close match to Joan G.  I got in touch with her as I don’t know who she is.  She is Jewish but wouldn’t tell me anything about herself or her family.  I have tried to research her but I can’t even find her birth certificate which leads me to think she may have been adopted.  She has New York roots but adoption records in New York are sealed.  I sent a letter to her nephew but haven’t heard back from him.

I don’t want to cause  trauma for anyone nor am I looking for new cousins.  All I want to know is how we are related.  I have no first cousins as my father’s immediate family died in the Holocaust and my mother had one brother who never married.  Anyone who might be able to give me information is no longer alive. 

I would appreciate  any help or suggestions anyone may offer.  Thanks in advance.

Hi Ruben,

Please look up any TUCHFELDs for me. I am likely related to all with this surname in Rzeszow. Thank you!

Can you tell me what your source is or anything about it? I am on the board of Gesher Galicia and we are always interested in new sources of information. We are not aware of any Rzeszow Jewish records before 1842. Thank you!

Re: Statistics on Conversos #sephardic

Peter Irvine <peterbirvine@...>
 

The ending date of the Inquisition, I am told, is considerably later
than one might imagine. My ancestor Antonio de Sousa was born 1707
on the Island of Terceira, Azores, Kingdom of Portugal. He left his
native country at the age of 19. I think he may have been escaping
from the Inquisition, as late as it might seem.

Naming of first-born after grandfather's death #galicia

David Scriven
 

Dear All,

I've noted a pattern in the records of my family: if the husband's father
dies, the first-born male after this event will be given the same name
as the (deceased) grandfather. I'm guessing that this was a tradition -
but was it among all Jews in Galicia, or among a specific group? Was
it seen outside Galicia?

Apart >from the difficulties for genealogists of having people with the
same name every 2nd generation, was it enough of a rule/tradition
that the reverse inference can be made?

My g-g-grandparents had a child named Abraham Isac Pomeranz 3
months after the death of an Abraham Isak Pomeranz (at age 52) >from
my g-g-grandfather's home town (Stryy). How likely is it that Abraham
Isak Pomeranz is actually my g-g-g-grandfather?

The APOTHEKER-LANDAU Connection in Nowy Sacz A Breakthrough #galicia

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Siggers,

I am glad to update you that after a long journey of more than six years
we managed to solve one of our family's mysteries.

Along the way I committed several unnecessary mistakes and
omissions but with the help and the professionalism of the SIG's
members I was guided in the right avenue. The only fact we knew was
that my wife's great grandfather Isac Saul APOTHEKER was born in
1831 in Nowy Sacz and married a certain Lea LANDAU around 1850.
There are no BMDs for this early period and of course LANDAU is a
huge tribe. It was only after an unknown descendant of the
APOTHEKER family provided me with a reference >from a Rabbinical
literature indicating that Isac Saul married the granddaughter of Rabbi
Baruch SEGA"L LANDA who was the Av Beth Din of Nowy Sacz and
environs. Another experienced Sigger with a sharp eye found in Geni
an entry for Rabbi Baruch Ha Levi LANDAU and his son Judah Leib Ha
Levi LANDAU. Comparison of the given names of the children confirms
the pattern of lineage in both families. Other Siggers provided useful
suggestions and further reference to Rabbinical literature and
discussion groups in Yiddish.

Thank you all!!!

Re: Statistics on Conversos #sephardic

douglasturner@...
 

The subject of these statistics is very much a "Who knows?" question and one
typically sees a range of estimates.

Here are some estimates >from Wikipedia "Expulsion of Jews >from Spain"
providing a timeline as much as anything.

The Alhambra Decree aka Edict of Expulsion was issued March 31, 1492, to
take effect on Tisha B'Av, 1492, which it did.

More than half of Spain's Jews had converted in 1391 due to persecutions and
pogroms. Wikipedia "History of the Jews in Spain" put this number at
300,000 converts.

Because of "continuing attacks" 50,000 more had converted by 1415. Wikipedia
"Expulsion of Jews >from Spain" numbers the total converts >from 1391 to 1492
at 200,000.

Between 40,000 and 100,000 Jewish Spaniards were expelled in 1492. "An
unknown number returned to Spain in the following years" (Wikipedia
"Expulsion of Jews >from Spain"). The numbers expelled would constitute a
human tidal wave in any era.

Likewise the number of today's descendants of converts who remained in Spain
in 1492 must be considerable.

I saw a very imprecise map showing where the expelled migrated. There was
one arrow >from northern Spain to somewhere in southern England. The note
stated some were forced to return >from England to Spain where they
converted.

There was no record given of those who did not return to Spain >from England
which was already officially Judenrein in 1492. Presumably those remaining
in England were forced to convert in England and assimilated there.

It is a little known fact that Sicily was under the control of Spain in 1492
and the Jews of Sicily suffered the same fate at the Jews of Spain but in
1493.

An estimated 36,000 Sicilian Jews were expelled in 1493 (Wikipedia "History
of the Jews of Sicily and the Spanish Inquisition"). An unknown number
accepted conversion to remain in Sicily.

An interesting article "Surnames of the former Jews of Sicily" states "After
the edict of expulsion part of the Jewish population converted. These are
some surnames adopted by Jews after the conversion." Hundreds of names are
listed.

The Inquisition in Spain was abolished in 1820s-1830s. The last Inquisition
trial in Brazil I could find noted was in 1763.

I have learned of an annual festival on one of the Portuguese islands when
men dress in pointed black hoods and black robes to mingle among the crowds.
This appears to be a form of modern intimidation.

Likewise I learned of an annual festival in Ecuador when effigies are
burned. People tease one another saying "I will burn you!" This also
appears to be not so subtle intimidation.

Family Tree DNA found that an astonishing percentage of Latin American men,
presumably not Jewish, testing there have the Cohen Modal Haplotype
indicating they are descendants of Aaron the brother of Moses.

If so many Latin American males are Cohen, what are the rest?
