Was the term nin V'neched on a matzeiva used loosely to mean a
descendant of? Or in all instances, is it strictly used to mean
a grandchild?

PERELBERG or PERLOWAGORA Rabbis #rabbinic

Jason Greenberg <jhgreenberg812@...>
 

I'm writing to see if I can find more information on a potential rabbi
ancestor. His name has appeared as both Dawid Aron PERLOWAGORA and
Aron Dawid PERELBERG. He would have been born (circa 1845) or lived in
Ciechanowiec, Jablonka Koscielna, and/or Zambrow.

I believe his wife's name to have been Alta Tauba PALGAN, and his
children would have included Rochla Leja (married Mendel MOROZOWICZ),
Alter Bentzion (also a rabbi and shochet, married Cypa BLUMERT), Chaje
(married FRIEDLAND), and Pesza Fejga (married Szaja ROZYNKIER).

I wrote to this community once before about this ancestor and received
a response, so thanks! But I recently discovered that the surname
might have been PERLOWAGORA instead of or in addition to PERELBERG, so
I'm writing again to see if there is any more information now that I
have this name.

David LEVI, London #rabbinic

Debbie Lifshitz
 

Greetings!
David LEVI [ben Mordechai] (b. 1742- d.1801) lived in London. He was a
Hebrew grammarian and translator, and was the first to translate the
Haggadah into English (among other translations) in 1770.
In 1807 a Isaac [Yitzchak benTzvi] LEVI together with his partner
Chaim ben Sender re-published this Haggadah with some "corrections".
Does anyone happen to know if there is a connection between these two
LEVIs or whether the family names are merely coincidental?
Alternatively where can one find more information about their families??
Thanks so much!

Western Sephardim DNA Project #dna

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I'm looking for potential participants to participate in our study of
Western Sephardi paternal DNA lineages. Thanks to a generous grant,
testing kits will be provided at no cost to the participants. Eligible
participants are those who are direct paternal line descendants of the
Western Sephardi community.

What is the Western Sephardi community? The Western Sephardim, were
arguably the original transnational people in the age of Imperialism
and Colonialism, transcending religious boundaries and empires.The
Western Sephardim include the communities of Amsterdam, London,
Livorno, Venice, Bordeaux and Southwest France, and their daughter
communities in the New World in Curacao, Suriname, and North America.
There were also Western Sephardim who ended up in the Ottoman Empire,
most notably in Izmir, Salonika, and Tunis.

Who is eligible? Anyone who is >from those communities of direct
paternal descent is eligible. For example, I am a part of the testing
cohort, representing the Vaz Lopes family of Bordeaux and Amsterdam.
As part of the testing, we will also need an accurate paternal
genealogy, with as much information as you can provide.

The goal of this project is to try and shed light on the origins of
the Western Sephardi community and to establish a strong dataset of
DNA results, grounded in strong archival research and results that
would lead to further intensive studies of Sephardim.

Please contact me if you are interested or know someone who might be
eligible. We aim to have a cohort of at least 50 men tested. I am
happy to answer any questions! Your privacy is protected and the
results of the study will be published.

Thanks for your interest!

Offering Lookups (Again) at NYC Municipal Archives/NY Public Library #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am going to try and do lookups next Tuesday and I will be available
to get copies of certificates at the NYC Municipal Archives as well as
likely to be at the NY Public Library.

If anyone needs something specific please contact me and we can discuss
if I can help you.

Anyone who has availed my services in the past knows I have a sort of
set routine. On these trips I am basically working as your eyes and
legs for people who can not get to the Archives or Library themselves.

Generally what I do is transcribe certificates where you have already
found the numbers >from the online indexes or sometimes check for
missing records with the tools at the Archives. Yes I can retrieve
the City Clerk marriage licenses the ones where the indexes just went
on line. As a reminder I can only access births through 1909,
marriages through 1937, City Clerk licenses through 1929 (after that
requires going to the marriage bureau); and deaths through 1948.
Also I can do natrualizations at the NY Supreme Court which is in the
same building and probates for Manhattan.

At the Library I can access the newspapers, city directories, NY Census
and various databases plus sometimes retrieve books and make copies.

I ask everyone to cover the costs including the printing of certificates
(if you want them) which is $11 each plus a little for me to help offset
my travel costs. Same for copy costs at the NY Public Library.

What I do is take the details you have and in the case of the Archives I
actually look at each certificate on the microfilm before placing the
copy order to make sure it is what you said it was. Sometimes I have to
clean up errors in transcription of numbers, research >from your info to
find the correct certificate number. etc. I pay for the certificates
and then trust you to reimburse me. I can either scan and email or mail
certificates. I type notes and email.

Please understand that generic searches when you only have vague details
(like Moshie married Sally but that's all I know) or are trying to
breakdown a brickwall that you have been working at for years requires
an investment of time beyond a quick retrieval and I can not include in
this offer.

I am always happy to discuss any and all research questions involving
NYC area look ups.

New York assistance - my 'brick wall' #general

Trudy Barch
 

I am returning to an old 'brick wall' of mine. I am at a lost to finding
out about child 1. If you could help, I would truly appreciate it.

Isack or Isadore and Ida Loochtan were married March 1903 in Russia. Some
records spell the name with one O. Some say tAn and some say tOn.
World War I draft was in 1918 in Chicago.
The 1920 and 1930 census were >from Chicago.
His naturalization paper (dated December 14, 1923 Chicago) says he
arrived in New York March 17, 1904.
I'm guessing his wife was with him.

The 1st child Lillian Loochtan was born between March 1904 and March 1905.
This little girl died 3 or 4 years later in New York (1907 or 1908). First
Chicago birth was June 1909.

The 2nd child was born in New York December 1905
The 3rd child was born in New York March 1907
The 4th child was born in Chicago June 1909
And the younger children - 8 - were born in Chicago.

I have not been able to locate the 1910 Chicago census or 1905 New York
State Census.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thank you, Trudy Barch, Chicagoland
