Bessarabia Revision List Updates from June 2014 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Researchers,

12,756 Revision records were added to the Bessarabia Revision database.
Thanks to all volunteers who worked many hours to make this happen.
Shortly the records will be available at JewishGen - Romania-Moldova
Database. We have now total of 81,438 Revision records.

The mew addition includes oldest records found so far: >from 1824, these are
records >from 4 kehilot in the Khotin district: Khotin, Brichany, Lipkany and
Otaki (Otaki was in Khotin district in 1824, and after that became part of
Soroki district). These are very different records include Heads of
Households, usually men, but also widows with children who could work in the
fields. The geography is very much not what we would expect in 1824. Only
in Khotin kehila Jews lived in 70! localities, and overall in 4 kehilot they
lived in about 200 localities.

Also almost all records have a set of personal characteristics of the
person: type of a face, nose, color of hair, eyes, some other special
features.

In addition to 1824 records, we have records >from 1835 - 1859 for towns of
Teleneshty, Faleshty, Orgeev, Tuzora (Kalarash), Kriulyany, Kaushany,
villages >from Bendery and Orgeev districts, Bricheva, Markuleshty,
Mereshevka, Soroki and Gancheshty.

In several days, after the Bessarabia SIG website is going to be updated,
you can find the details of all sets of records worked >from summer of 2013
up to June of 2014.

If you have any questions, please email me at yefimk@....

All the best,

Help! with arrivals info #ukraine

Elaine Halprin
 

Hello >from blazing hot Las Vegas. I am trying to find passage information
about my great grandmother and her five children and have hit a brick wall.
My great grandmother, Yente Schneiderman KAMINKER and her children traveled
from possibly Korets, Ukraine, in 1898 or 1899. At the time of travel,
Yente (Jenny) was approximately 30 years old. She brought with her
children Pauline (Perel?), age 15, Simon, age 8, Ida (Chaya) age 5, Ester,
age 3 and Louis, age 2. She was going to her husband Baruch (Barnet)
Kaminker who had come the year before on 5 Jan 1898 >from Vilna through
Canada to Lawrence, Mass. I have looked everywhere. Can anyone help with
this mystery? Thanks in advance.

Re: Korban Nesanel #rabbinic

martin hecht <martinjhecht@...>
 

At Hebrewbooks.org you can see the introduction to the Korban
Nesanel, in which he lists his ancestors going back about 4-5
generations (to Rav Yaakov Weill), with the places where they
served as AvBeisDin/Rav. Although it does not refer to anyone
as a Levi or Kohen, I would not exclude the possibility based
on this. Perhaps searching on the names of his ancestors or in
their works(or tombstones,if available) would yield some results.

Re: Half siblings #dna

elanc@...
 

I believe half siblings would generally appear like first
cousins in terms of the typical total cM length of matching
DNA segments. But the pattern should be somewhat different,
although it may be difficult to detect. With cousins there's
an equal probability of matching segments on both copies of
each chromosome. With half siblings all the matching
segments will be concentrated on one out of each pair of
chromosomes.

I guess the total cM would look like cousins, but the
individual overlapping segment lengths would be like those
of full siblings.

INTRO- Researching Jakob MARX / Dorothea KORST family from Waldmohr / Rheinland-Pfalz #germany

rainer hahn <rainer.hahn@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for 3
years. I consider myself to be beginner in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. I live in Vienna, Austria. My native language is
German but I also know English and little French. I consider myself
intermediate in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet
is intermediate.

I have identified the names and birth of my grandparents, Daniel BALL
( born 20.08.1859, Gleiszellen) and his wife, Karoline MARX ( born
22.01.1855, Waldmohr). >from my great grandparents, Jakob MARX and
Dorothea KORST who lived in Waldmohr I only have their names. They
must have been born around 1820. Jakob MARX signed the marriage
document of his daughter Karoline, at 4th of February, 1888.

My primary research goals are to find out more about the family of
Jakob MARX, Anselm HAHN ( born 17.03.1853, Zell-Weierbach), Margarethe
ZIETSCH (*22.03.1857, Leimen), Karl Daniel BRADFISCH ( born 1834,
Zweibruecken) and Katharina SUTTER ( born 1834, Zweibruecken(?)).

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 641452. Thank you for any help!

Lodz ghetto records #general

Lewis, Megan
 

On June 12, Miriam Bulwar David-Hay asked which reels/files >from the
Lodz ghetto collection have been indexed on Jewishgen and World Memory
Project/Ancestry. She also asked if there is concordance. The World
Memory Project is the joint USHMM/Ancestry indexing project, and the
source of the records on Ancestry. I spoke with the person who
coordinates the indexing. According to her, only reels 179-192, all
files of the vital records, and the some of the re-indexed worker id
cards >from reels 673-696, are on Ancestry.

About the concordance: there isn't one. But I figured out a
work-around of sorts, involving the listing on Ancestry and the
finding aid for USHMM RG-15.083, which is at
http://collections.ushmm.org/findingaids/RG-15.083M_01.pdf. For my
example, I am going to use this record, http://ancstry.me/1iBzyJk
which is about the death of Nachman Rapapport June 10, 1941.

Each of the records on Ancestry includes a Source Citation. The
source citation includes a file number. In Nachman's case, the file
number is RG-15.083M; File: rg-15_083m_0184-00000963. The file number
consists of three separate parts. rg-15_083m_ is the record group,
184 is the reel number, and -00000963 is the image number on the reel.

Going to the finding aid for RG-15.083, I find that there are 3
files on reel 184: 948, 949 and 950. Files 948 and 949 are deaths in
1940, and 950 is a death register with the date of July 2, 1941. Since
Nachman died in June 1941, he is most likely in file 950. When I went
to the Polish State Archives site, I found him in section 13.2, file
950.
