The butler's cousins #dna

howard sachs <hfsachs@...>
 

DNA report >from Oxford on my matrilineal line says I'm
a descendant of "Helena" (apparently technically
described as being in the H haplogroup). This is
consistent with Jerusalem Post report in JUne of a
study indicating that (perhaps 1800 years ago) a
typical Jewish family on the fringes of Europe
consisted of a Semitic male and a spouse of local
Diaspora origin. I understand Houston has similar
indications of genetic origins. According to "Seven
Daughters of Eve" this makes me a "cousin" of
Cuthbert,the butler at the Longleat estate (whose
owner also owns caves where Cheshire Man--also an H
descendant--was found). I hope more reports will be
coming in on these relationships.Keep tuned for
Houston. Howard Sachs

Re: Zfat's Ancient Cemetery #rabbinic

Samuel Shoshan <sshoshan@...>
 

Some of you have been writing to me, looking for burials of ancestors
laid to rest here: I am looking into them. Today, I saw several
matsevot with the name Heller. I don’t know their relationship to the
famous Yom Tov Lipman Heller, the Tosfot Yom Tov [1579-1654, >from a
long lineage of Rabbis going back to Yechiel Gaon, Rosh Yeshiva of
Rome in the 11th century]. Many of the graves are covered with a fine
yellow dust >from the nearby construction of a new super-highway link
from Zfat to the road to Tiberias.
Mordechai Shababo has recently painted sky-blue [ancient Zfat color]
the kever of Rav Shmuel Heller, who was the Ashkenazi Rav of Zfat, a
medical doctor and a disciple of Avrohom Dov of Avrich [1765-1840].
Rav Heller was instrumental in organizing a nearby esrog plantation to
benefit local Jewish farmers aiming for the European market that
imported esrogim for Sukot >from the Greek island of Corfu. He lived to
the age of eighty-eight, to 1884.

On the climb back upward I heard Jewish music, stopped for some shade
at the Arizal’s [Rav Yitskhak Luria] freezing-water mikva and watched
blond-haired, swarthy and black-skinned Jews enter. It seems that
before Rosh Hashana Jews come >from afar to immerse themselves in this
mikva at this cemetery. To see a nice photo of two Zfat modern Breslev
Chasidic musicians near the cemetery click on:
www.nachalnovea.com/calendar/calendar.htm and then to enlarge, on
“music and joy.”

Cong Ahavath Achim Anshei Mohilev on Dneipr #belarus

jselig3460@...
 

Genners:
Almost having completed my research into Belarus landsmanshaften I have as yet failed to find materials on the Mohilev Congregation in the YIVO Archives. Succeeding in helping many people to locate their antecedents in my name gathering work on Belarus shtetl based landsmanshaften the organization which was responsible for the burial of my father's parents I could not help to find materials in my grandparents' group.
I therefore carefully prepared a trip to the Baron Hirsch Cemetery on Staten Island armed with my digital camera. The Mogilev plot was overgrown with invasive plants many of which I am sure were injurious to the touch and continued their harm by adhering to clothing. It was inadvisable to clear away tombstones so as to take a complete photographic survey. I estimate that I could only manage about 20% of the stones in the plot.
The following are the names recorded on tombstones which I was able to photograph. For those of you who can identify relatives I will send a copy to you via photo e-mail.
Charles and Jacob Raskin, Eva and Morris Topkin, Solomon and Yetta Mofshin, Jacob Paris, Golda Jaffe, Esther Rabe, Rose Bernstein, Minnie and David River, Mary and Nathan Israelefsky, Louis Polakoff, Clara and Simeon Simons, Samuel and Rose Solotkin, Morris Wichnin, Eli Rizack, Abraham and Sarah Levine, Sadie and Nathan Lubman, Fival Posner, Isaac Bassen, and my father's parents, Abraham and Fannie Seligsohn whose pictures were taken five years ago and could not be located at the time of this search.

Hello all,

The loss of Stephen Morse's site is a cold reminder that we should not
take for granted the availability of information on the Internet. Just
because we have access to information, or even retrieval methods, today
doesn't mean we will have it tomorrow. I was fortunate enough to have
saved some of the searches I had done on Stephen's site to my own PC.
For example, I did a search for everyone >from a specific town. I saved
all of the lists returned by the query. I can open the lists anytime I
like and all of the links on the pages will still work. I also save
results >from JewishGen databases and Ellis Island manifests.

I thought it might help people, who don't know how to save web pages and
images, to provide a couple of tips for saving information. These tips
work in Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) version 6. I don't believe you
can do quite the same in Netscape.

Andrew Blumberg

R' Samuel CARO #rabbinic

[Moderator's Note: Please ignore the previous version of this post.
It had the wrong headers. My apologies. ]

Hello everyone,

I'd like to know if someone has any information concerning Rabbi
Samuel CARO. He was my 8th great-grandfather but i can't seem to
find too much information about him. I can estimate that he was
born in the 17th century, probably in Morocco, but i am not sure.

His daughter married Ayyush ELMALEH and they had a son, Rabbi Joseph
Ben Ayyush ELMALEH (1750-1823, Rabat Morocco). Rabbi Joseph Ben
Ayyush ELMALEH wrote "Tokfo Shel Yossef".

If anyone has any information that could help me develop this branch
of the CARO family, i'd really appreciate it.

Thanks
