Re: Questions Regarding DNA testing #dna

sbloom@...
 

I've been researching my genealogy for years, but have not yet used a
DNA test, and have lots of very basic questions about them:
--I'm hoping to confirm a relationship between my family (BUDGAR) and
another family (BUDGOR). This seems like a dumb question, but to do this
do I need to have both my brother and a male member of the BUDGOR family
take the Y-DNA test, or is my brother sufficient?
For now, lets just assume you are using FTDNA. They could process your results
without the BUDGOR male, but for that specific one on one test, you
would definitely need both males to test.

What information,
exactly, can I expect to get >from the Y-DNA test my brother takes? Will
it give names of relatives, or just numbers of haplotypes, etc.?
You will get a list of matches, their contact info (optional, so not
everyone gives it), and how tightly they match.
You will get an initial "best guess" as to what the haplotype is.

--Can I get even more information if my brother (and/or I) take the
FamilyFinder test instead?
Perhaps, but I don't think it would give that much more information
for the specific test you intend. That is, matching two
BUDGAR/BUDGOR, the test (assuming they really are related), might
tell you just that---that they are related---which you would
already know if they match on the ydna test.

I would only do the FF test in this case *if* you are really
interested in finding out all possible relatives along all lines.
If all you want to do is test these two men mentioned above, then
forget FF and mtdna for now.

Would that be more info than if my brother
took the Y-DNA and I took the Mt-DNA test?
Mt-dna is passed to a male, so you need not take the mtdna test, you
could have your brother do it >from the same sample as all the other
tests, BUT, I don't recommend it in this case, as it would only provide
information on your maternal line.

--Also, I understand that 23andme provides health info in addition to
genealogical information, but that their genealogical info is considered
inferior to Family Tree; can anyone explain why?
I don't think this has anything to do with the company (which I like,
for a number of reasons). Its my experience that their customers just
tend not to have that much genealogical information, which makes the
test much less powerful. In my mind, these tests are only as good as
the genealogical information that all of the "matchees" have to back up
the indicated relationship. Otherwise all you know is that you are a
cousin with said person, which doesn't say much more than what you
might have just guessed at without having spent hundreds of dollars.
Also, 23andme does not do a ydna test specifically, they just do a
haplogroup determination. Their test is actually a good value, BUT if
you really want that specific y-dna test, you really should go with FTDNA.

Re: newbie questions #dna

Sarah L Meyer
 

Hi Laurie,
I am just a bit more advanced than you are, but I will try to answer your
questions.
1. The Y test is very helpful when trying to establish a relationship where
the surnames are the same (except possibly for spelling). In that case, you
need to recruit as many BUDGA/OR men as possible to determine a link, but at
a minimum your brother and a man >from the other family. The Y test only
works for male descendants on the paternal line (or surname) line. You
should explore FamilyTreeDNA's surname projects and see if there is one for
BUDGAR. Do the same for 23 and me.
2. The mtDNA test is almost useless for genealogy unless you do the full
test - and it only picks up the maternal line (eg mother's mother's mother
etc). This is because the mtDNA mutates much slower than the Y DNA. I have
found one double match with someone in the family finder - but we don't know
who the common ancestor is, and I have many matches with people whose
mothers were in the US in the 1700's, while on my mother's side, I am a
first generation American.
3. The family finder test is not restricted to one line (that is a plus)
but that means you get tons of matches and you don't necessarily have a clue
how you are related. But it has given me a clue that my grandmother's
statement about having "yichus" is true. I just haven't worked it out yet.
Jewish genealogy is not easy and this isn't either.
4. The reasons that I prefer FamilyTreeDNA to 23 and me are: that it does
not have health information, which makes it easier to convince a cousin to
test since you wouldn't be getting his/her personal information (and frankly
I do not want the health information) and also that it has a much larger
database, especially for Jews.
5. That said, there are websites www.Ysearch.org and www.gedmatch.com
where you can upload the results of "your" tests regardless of testing
company and get comparisons to their databases.

Polish Passports #lodz #poland

Wayne Morgan <morgan.wayne@...>
 

Hello Everyone:

In 1909, my wife's grandfather, Tzali Szczercowski, travelled from
Lodz (probably Baluti) to Paris to obtain training in tailoring. He
must have had a passport to make this trip.

Does anyone know if there is any way of obtaining passport application
information for that time frame?

Thanks

Galicia and Bukovina business directory, 1907-1913 #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I am pleased to announce that a Galicia and Bukovina business
directory dated 1907-1913 is now searchable and viewable at
http://genealogyindexer.org This is volume 19b of the 10th edition
of Leuchs' "Adressbuch aller Laender der Erde der Kaufleute,
Fabrikanten, Gewerbtreibenden, Gutsbesitzer, ..." The directory is
included in all searches by default. You can restrict searches to it,
excluding other directories, by appending {d667} to your search term
(e.g., Lichtbach {d667}).

The directory is organized mostly by town. To find a town's section
(rather than searching by surname), you can use the town index
beginning at http://genealogyindexer.org/view/190713Leuchs19b/681
The numbers next to the town names are the printed page numbers, to
which you should add 20 to get approximately the corresponding image
number in the online presentation. You can jump to image number X with
the URL http://genealogyindexer.org/view/190713Leuchs19b/X
If you do not see your town, go forward or backward using the numerical
"Image" links in the top middle of the page. Alternatively, you can
often find a town's section by using the town's name as your search term
(with {d667}).

Please note that the date 1907-1913 printed on the title page might
refer to the range of publication dates across all volumes of this
edition, and not the time period in which information was collected
for this particular volume. If you know more precisely the date of
publication or compilation of this volume, please contact me. It is
not apparent to me >from the directory itself, unlike some other
editions. Possibly, this is clarified in the first volume, which is
not online.

This directory is available only because an anonymous donor paid for
its digitization by the Moravian Library in Brno through the eBooks on
Demand program (http://books2ebooks.eu), and then provided me with the
images. While the donor does not wish to be publicly acknowledged, I
am sure that many of us will be grateful for this generous gift.
