David - as you rightly point out, in the first instance your correspondent
needs to clinically prove that she is not her registered mother's daughter.
The simple process would be for both parties to have an mtDNA test - and if
they were significantly different then that would prove the first part of
her case. However, clearly this is not a simple question of each party
agreeing to and then having the appropriate definitive test!

Just to add one comment.

Ideally the woman would test with her registered mother to find out if
they are biological mother and daughter. However, if that's not possible
due to a strained relationship, an autosomal test with any other close
relative - a sibling, aunt or uncle, or a first cousin, may be sufficient.
It will tell her with a good degree of confidence whether she is
biologically part of the family. Hopefully there is at least one such
relative who is willing to help.

My grandparents: NEUMANN #hungary

Highman Heather
 

I have been under the misapprehension that my maternal great grandparents were from
Hungary, as my Mother and Aunt were born in Budapest. I know that they moved to
Bruno in the Czech Republic , as my grandfather started a branch of the family
business there. They were in ladies fashions and I know that they manufactured
and had shops as well.
Recently I was told that , no they were Polish! which put me back to square one
again.
What has added to my problems us that the family name is Neumann . Still , they
are my Neumann's, so I need help to point me in the right direction , to find out
where they came >from originally ,
My great Grand parents , were Shimon and Gitle Neumann.
My grand parents were Adolf and Eda Neumann ( nee Stempel )
And their children were Giselle , my mother, and my Aunt Renee.
I have my mothers birth certificate , but I don't know where to find her parents
marriage certificate.
I know that the Stempels were >from Zolynia and Kracov. And I have a lot of
information on them, It's the other side of the family, that is the problem ,

: Viewmate photo of six men in the Austro Hungarian Army #hungary

ericalishahn@...
 

Viewmate post 30083. Hello
I have posted in viewmate, a picture of six men in uniform >from the first World War
. I believe that one of them is my grandfather Mihaly Hahn who was then living in
Szabadka Hungary, now Subotica Serbia. This group would certainly have been in the
Austro Hungarian army. Does anyone know exactly what the uniforms are? Each of
the men has three stars on his collar. Does anyone know what that is? Thanks for any help

Kiev and Kazatin records #ukraine

galmar55@...
 

Thanks very much for that explanation, Chuck. So the Ukrainians wouldn't
let the Mormons photograph their archives. I'm actually glad to hear
that because it means there is hope that I could go there and find the
records.

I was afraid that the records had all been lost in fires and assorted
20th century turmoil, like so many of the Bessarabia records. Though I
do of course hope that the Ukrainians will reconsider and give access to
the FHC.

Does anyone know how much it might cost to hire a researcher?
