Re: Uploading autosomal results #dna

Michael,
<My adult daughter tested with 23andMe; my wife tested with Family
Tree DNA. Since my daughter tested just a few months ago her are
results were rejected by Family Tree DNA as being >from too recent a
version (V5 chip) and so incompatible. Any advice as to what we can
do?>
Two possibilities.
I believe that both genomes can be download >from FT DNA and 23&me
respectively, and uploaded to MyHeritage.
Alternatively, or perhaps in addition, FT DNA is having a sale on
autosomal through 11/22 for $49, which works out to about $62 after
mailing costs. Your daughter may want to test with FT DNA, since they
have a much larger Jewish database.

1858 census for Brest district? #belarus

raina.accardi@...
 

I am looking for the surname BUSHMITZ or BUSCMICZ in Vysoko-Litovsk.
I was told by a few researchers that the 1858 census (for Grodno,
I think) includes this shtetl. Does the Belarus SIG or JewishGen
have any copies of this census?

Thanks,

My grandfather was born, according to family lore, in Brest-Litovsk c.
1885. When he was very young, his mother took him to Palestine, where
she died, and he lived for some years in an orphanage, which I am
guessing was the Diskin Orphanage in Jerusalem. In 1903, he emigrated.
He evidently had some eye problem, for which he was quarantined in
Marseilles, before eventually landing in New York in 1904. I have been
able to find no documentary evidence of any of this. I would
appreciate any insight anyone might have regarding:emigration from
Brest-Litovsk to Palestine in the 1880's and 1890's; the Diskin
Orphanage, or quarantined emigrants in Marseilles at the turn of the
20th century. Thanks for any leads or hints.

Photo request for 3 graves in Beth David Cemetery, Elmont, NY #general

Emily Garber
 

I am seeking photos of three stones in Beth David Cemetery, Elmont, NY.

I have checked Find A Grave, JOWBR, JewishData, Billion Graves and
Interment.net. Nothing on these graves.

I have also called the cemetery and they told me they do not offer
photos unless there is perpetual care on the graves. They will not
take payment >from me for photos. So, I need help >from someone local.

If you are planning a trip to the cemetery any time soon (or might do
so for a small fee), please let me know and I will give you
information on the gravestones I am seeking. Thank you!

Re: DNA match to me but not my parents #dna

Moishe Miller
 

Hello,
If you both upload to GedMatch your own and your parent's results and
use the "Phase" tool at GedMatch, it will split your DNA into the maternal
and paternal "slices". This will allow you to eliminate many False
Positives. 9cm is very small. If your "sliced" DNA matches still, it
will tell you >from which side of yours and which side of your friend's
parents the match exists.

There are some very good articles on this. Try googling with these
words: dna gedmatch parental phasing

(I like Blaine's article and Roberta's too)

During the last year my parents (who are 3rd cousins) and I did the
autosomal family finder test on FTDNA. One surprise was that a very
good friend and neighbor with whom I thought I had no family
relationship came up as a 5th or remote cousin on my test, with 116
Shared Cm and a longest block of 9.
He did not show up on either of my parents' tests. Can someone explain
why? I am not adopted, I show up as a daughter of each of my parents.

searching ROSENGARTEN, ?Belz #general

Phillip Rosengarten <phil19351@...>
 

I have searched jeiwhgen data bases for my family surname ROSENGARTEN.
I found whole family in London census 1901 where they state origins of
Belz in Galicia Poland. This is consistent with family fokelore that
they went >from Belz to London in early 1900s. None of family shows up
in any JG data base search by name or town Belz, Have varied spelling.
How should I approach this problem?
