Indexing of Memel / Klaipeda (Lithuania) vital records now complete #general

Russ Maurer
 

Over the last couple of years, the Klaipeda district research group of LitvakSIG
has made a concerted effort to complete the indexing of available vital records
for the city of Memel(now Klaipeda). This effort has concluded successfully with
the final files just posted on our district site. While there are some gaps in the
records, we have marriages and deaths >from about 1875 to 1939, and births up to
1917 (later years of births are still private). The last pieces to come in were
the records after 1915. We posted those deaths this spring (507 records), and just
posted the marriages (139) and births (9). As usual, each of these posted files
will be available only to Klaipeda DRG donors for the first 18 months, and then
will be added to the All-Lithuania Database for general access. The pre-1915
marriages and births, which were posted earlier, have already gone to the ALD.
Separate surname lists for the post-1915 records and the records up to 1915 may be
viewed on the Klaipeda page of the LitvakSIG website,
https://www.litvaksig.org/research/district-research/klaipeda-district-research-group.
(MODERATOR: https://tinyurl.com/y8cdt7o2 )
The surname lists include names of any parents, spouses, or witnesses mentioned in
the records. Questions about making a qualifying contribution to gain immediate
access to all of the index files can be directed to me.

We thank our intrepid researcher, Ignas Slajus, who spent hours looking through
thousands of pages of post-1915 civil registrations to find and photograph the
Jewish ones, and we thank our volunteer translator, Alistair Stewart, for his
contribution.

Help with BERKNER Family from Bialystok/Grodno/Russia #belarus

Anne Mosteller <anne.c.mosteller@...>
 

Hello-
My great-grandmother was born in Bailystok/Bielostok in 1896,
according to a passport document she filled out. Her full name, as I
know it, was Maria Sergavna BERKNER She married an American with the
last name Mosteller in 1920 and went to America shortly after that.
Based on an ancestry.com record, the only names potentially associated
with her parents are Tamari BERKNER and Helena Saperstein.
Unfortunately, I have found nothing searching for Maria herself or her
parents and really want to know more about them! I know almost nothing
beyond what I've shared. If there are any leads you could help me
with, I'm interested!

Thank you,
Anne Mosteller

ViewMate translation request - Polish or German #galicia

Barbara Ellman
 

I've posted a vital record in Polish or German for which I need a
translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69421

The document is a birth record >from 1877 with a notation >from 1913.
It is the notation that I'm looking for a translation of. It may lead
me to more information on a previous dead end in my family tree.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.
Thank you very much.

Inconsistent Ancestry Results #dna

Herbert Lazerow
 

Greetings, all. Here is something I don't understand. Ancestry shows a young
relative whose great-great grandmother was an elder sister to my
grandfather. She is a "very high match" (49 centimorgans shared across 7 DNA
segments) whereas her own sister shows as an "extremely high match" (72
centimorgans shared across 8 DNA segments).>
Those are only high matches for 4th cousins or more distant
relations. 49/7 means that the longest string is at least 7
centiMorgans long, probably a bit longer. 72/8 means that the longest
string is at least 9. None of those indicates a closer relationship
than 4th cousins, and the 72/8 sibling is more likely to be a 4th
cousin than the 49/7.
I am stumped why two siblings
would not have the same match numbers.>
They are likely to have similar match numbers to their parents
because we each receive roughly 50% of our dna >from each parent. They
are unlikely to have similar match numbers with other relatives
because the 50% we receive >from each parent is a random 50%. So each
sibling may have received the same percentage of dna >from each parent,
but unless they are identical twins, it will be a different mixture of
each parent's genes.
Illustration: Assume siblings of the same parents. S1 receives
genes A-D >from dad and E-H >from mom. S2 receives genes A-B and E-F
from dad, and genes C-D and G-H >from mom. They share only genes A-B
from dad and genes G-H >from mom.
S1 has a son GS1 who receives 50% of S1's genes. GS1 receives
genes A-B (dad's genes) and F-G (mom's genes) >from S1. GS1's other
genes (C, D, E & H) come >from S1's marriage partner. S2 has a son
GS2. GS2 receives genes A (dad's gene) C (mom's gene), F (dad's gene)
and H (mom's gene) >from S2. GS2's other genes (B, D, E & G) come from
S2's marriage partner. Note that only gene A matches between GS1 and
GS2 because it came in both cases >from dad. Each GS continues to carry
some of mom's genes and other genes >from dad, but the genes GS1
carries >from mom do not match the genes that GS2 carries >from mom, nor
do the other genes each inherited >from dad.

Re: inconcistent Ancestry results #dna

Sarah L Meyer
 

David,
This is not unique to Ancestry, it is because unless the two siblings are
identical twins they have different DNA. They each inherited 50% >from each
parent, but it is a different 50% mix. That is why we test siblings because
the matches are different and we get new places to test.
Sarah Meyer


Re: dna digest: September 29, 2018 #dna

Sandy Crystall
 

David-
We inherit different proportions of DNA >from our two parents --that is
why it is so important to test siblings. >from matches on different
sides of my family, I can see that my sister has more DNA >from our
maternal side than I do, and thus has stronger matches on that side as
a consequence. I can see that in cousins who have tested -- some more
closely match the side of the family through which we are related.

Hope this is helpful. There are articles online that address this -
perhaps someone else will post some links.
