The future of the FrenchSIG? #france

Rosanne Leeson
 

Dear FrenchSIG Members,

As the 2019 IAJGS Conference is approaching you may have noticed
that there seem to be no meetings, Share Fair,
or other specific references to FrenchSIG gatherings or other SIG
events listed for this year in Cleveland.
So, let us tell you exactly why.

Pierre Hahn and I began this SIG shortly after the IAJGS Conference in
Paris in the late 1990's.  It has been our pleasure, inspiration and
challenge for these many years since. We also have a close and warm
working connection with the Cercle de Genealogie Juive in Paris.
We now have a membership list of nearly 1000 members.

However, as time has passed Pierre and I have also added numbers to
our years.  He will soon be 91, and I, 90 years old.
We are still doing well, but our concern is for the future of the
FrenchSIG. We are still hanging in there, but we are not immortal!
It will take time for others to come aboard and to learn what is
involved with running this SIG, and moving forward with it.
Otherwise it will become defunct!

Therefore this is essentially a request for any of you who are
interested in learning the ropes, and eventually taking over this SIG,
to please contact us. Among the 1000 there must be at least one or two
who would like to take on this challenge. And there are Pierre and I,
as well as JG staff who will be able to teach and guide,to keep this
SIG alive!

Hoping for some eager volunteers!

Aline(de) Wolfsthal - BMD Information Help #germany

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group,
In researching the direct relatives of musician Prof. Joseph WOLFSTHAL
the name Aline (Alind) WOLFSTHAL came up few times.

In Joseph Wolfsthal's Berlin/Vienna Obituary (Neue Freie Press Feb 8
1931), Aline appears as his sister.

Alinde is also listed in some of Berlin's address books (e.g., 1929,
https://digital.zlb.de/viewer/resolver?urn=urn:nbn:de:kobv:109-1-3874240).
She is listed as a pianist, much in line with the family's traditional
occupation.

However, I was unable to find any additional information about
Aline/Alinde - birth, death, burial. Nothing.

Can you recommend, where should I look for this information about
Aline/Alinde (BMD or any other relevant info?)

Additional information that might be relevant:
The parents (Lazar/Laser Wolf(s)thal and Fanny Horowitz had a daughter
called Helena, listed in JRI - but she died in 1885
(http://agadd.home.net.pl/metrykalia/300/sygn.%201438/pages/PL_1_300_1438_0041.htm

Thank you - Yaron Wolfsthal, Israel (Yaron.Wolfsthal@...)

DNA Terminology Question #dna

David Goldman
 

Greetings, all. Could anyone explain what the meaning is of such terms such
as the following that are reported when receiving notification of matches:
Y-12, Y-25, Y-37. What is the significance of those numbers when checking
matches with regard to paternal DNA?
Thanks,
David Goldman


Re: Name Malka #general

Shalom JewishGenners,

Concerning the given name Malca. Read with great interest the
discussion on this name. But for some reason, no one mentioned the
fact, that among Ashkenazi Jews, there are many, many girls/women
that carry a double barrel name and one of them being Malca. I am
talking about Esther Malca, many of the Esthers in my family
research database also carries the name of Malca.

All the best,

I'm trying to help a friend find his great grandfather's cemetery, he
was a Rabbi who died 1905 in Ostashin, Belarus. His name was Eliezer
Nathan Kavesh. Is there a list of Jewish cemeteries that might help
him or even list his name?
Thanks
