Bessarabia SIG new website! #general

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

It is a very important day today. Our Bessarabia SIG upgraded website to a
modern, database driven website.

The address of the website is the same:
https://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/

Here are just few important innovations:

- We have on front page a clickable map, which allows you to click on a
district, town/shtetl, and find out what is available for the town/shtetl
- Articles on different topics are grouped in a way that easy to find.
Article are linked to geographical entity: province, district or town
- Search the website: On the upper right corner there are ways to search
the site
- You can meet our Bessarabia SIG Leadership group - click on About /
Leadership
- There is a menu option dedicated to Cemetery projects and also a menu
option dedicated to Yizkor Book projects. Please explore them
- Town and District menu option will bring you to everything about
towns/shtetl and if you are in a town page you may see the articles
associated with that town if existed

There are many projects we are working on, not yet in the system, and we
will continue to improve the site in coming months.

We tried to move everything >from the "old" site to the new one, but if you
know of an article which was in the "old" site, but not in the new one,
please let us know!! We will fix it.

There are might be some minor issues, like a link not working, please let us
know about it, and we will fix it

I want to thank our Information System Director Ariel Parkansky who gave us
his software to manage the website. Ariel not only gave us the system, but
also helped us to making it as best as possible for our members. Also many
help to our Leadership https://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/ABT_Board.asp
group who corrected pages, and made the site better.

There is one project which was never added to the old site, but only to this
new site: Gallery of Famous Jews. You can get to it >from People / Gallery
of Famous Jews, and there are three sections of the project you can access.
Thanks a lot to Bianca Gamarnik for a great job.

Please let us know if you have any questions, issues, comments.

Swiss immigration records #general

Toby Gass <tgass@...>
 

Hello,

Does anyone know of records of immigration to Switzerland? I am trying to
follow the path of a female relative (single mother) and/or her young daughter
who travelled >from Chisinau/Kishinev to join her extended family in Geneva
sometime between 1907 and 1930, probably closer to 1907. She was born in
Bialystok, so her citizenship would have been Russian.

Thank you.

Mordechai HOROWITZ-marriage to Rav. David of Novarodok 18th cent. #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

In my ongoing search for descendants and extended family of Rav.
David (the rav) of Novarodok, he was also known as the "Galia
Mesechet(a)" (his book), I was informed that he married one of his
children to the child of a Mordechai HOROWITZ (possibly of Minsk).
This would have happened during the 18th cent.

Is any one connected to this HOROWITZ family or know anything about them.

My interest in the above is the possibily that we are descendants of
Rav. Dovid's brother.

TIA and Shavua Tov

Survey to understand endogamy's impact on shared DNA #dna

Lara Diamond
 

Endogamy significantly impacts shared DNA in Ashkenazi Jews. I'd like
to gather data to show how much DNA known Ashkenazi relatives share
with one another to help others know the range of shared DNA that can
be expected. Results will be posted to benefit the general public.

Please read and fill out this survey for all pairs of known Ashkenazi
relatives you've tested. The more data we get, the better we'll be
able to understand endogamy's impact on Ashkenazic DNA.

(Stay tuned; I'll be collecting information >from those with Sephardi,
Mizrachi and other Jewish ancestries in the future.)

Information about this survey can be found here:
