Multiple marriages to the same person #general

Paul Blumstein
 

As I'm adding info to my tree >from online record sources, I've been
encountering something that has happened several times recently but not
in the past.

I'm finding marriage records and licenses for couples that have already
been married. For example, a couple may get married in the '50s, have
several kids and get a marriage license again in the '70s. Usually, but
not always, in the same city.

So, my question is why does this happen? Was the first for religious
reasons and the second for civil reasons? Or, did they separate and get
back together? Or need paperwork to prove their marriage that they didn't
get the first time? All of the above?

I don't know if it is odder that I haven't seen that before or that it
happens at all.

I had my genetic dna test with LivingDNA however I cannot download it on
any of the sites. They claim that one can but it is not working . I
belong to MyHeritage and Ancestry.com and am contemplating doing a test
with Ancestry. My Heritage says no dna downloads or tests are available
for Israel.

Friends,
This is my understanding of the situation:
1. Israeli law (due to concern about mamzerim) has a law that prohibits DNA
testing for the purpose of "finding family". As far as I know paternity
tests and health tests are still permitted. This law is about 2 years old.
2. My Heritage does not sell to Israelis or allow uploads >from Israeli
computers. Some people have their data uploaded >from the US or elsewhere.
3. I have purchased and sent DNA kits >from FTDNA to Israel, that were
returned directly to the lab in Houston. Some were prior to the passage of
this law. Since I live in the US, I was able to upload the results of the
Israeli kits to MyHeritage.
4. I have a number of Israeli matches on MyHeritage to my own kit - and
their MyHeritage site and information is in Hebrew

Is that really so - no statement like that should be published without
citing the actual facts - it is just hearsay.

I would, at a minimum, want to know which Israeli 'law' this is -
definitely not the one that has been proposed to be used to establish
the right of return for former citizens of the FSU. I match with dozens
of Israeli kits on myHeritage and FTDNA and cannot imagine they, or the
various DNA testing centres based in Israel, are breaking or bending
the law but I'm happy to learn new facts!

Yizkor Book Project, December 2018 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I seem to have surprised myself by what we managed to achieve over
December in the Yizkor Book Project and the long list of new entries
and updates at the end of this report does bear witness to this.

I am pleased to say that, once again, we completely uploaded another
Yizkor book and this time for Monor, Hungary. Judith Lipmanson was
behind this project becoming a reality and we do thank her sincerely
for this. In addition, we were able to complete the online version of
the "Preserving Our Litvak Heritage" book which is also available as a
hard copy via the Yizkor Books in Print Project.

And regarding this project, it also provided some additional welcome
surprises for us - over the last month, no less than three new published
books became available. They are:

- The "Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book" on the Dnipropetrovsk
(Dnipro), Ukraine community
- The "The Zbaraz Memorial Book" on the Zbarazh, Ukraine community
- The "Resistance and Death in the Czenstochower Ghetto" on the
Czestochowa, Poland community

I'm really in awe of this remarkable achievement by Joel Alpert's
dedicated team and wish them "yeshar koach" and, at the same time, thank
them for the wonderful books that they continue to publish on a regular
basis. By-the-way, purchase details of these and all the other published
books can be found on YBIP page, the link for which appears at the end of
this report.

Being that it is the end of 2018, it seems appropriate to note a few
facts and figures about our project. Within the Yizkor Book Project,
there are now:

- over 900 translation projects of which 154 are complete projects with
many others heading towards completion.
- 2,255 entries - which are complete articles covering particular
communities. Notably, many of these come >from the Pinkasei Hakehillot
(Encyclopaedias of Jewish Communities) volumes translated >from the
original Hebrew.
- 78 published books by the YBIP Project.

I don't wish to overwhelm you with too many facts & figures but at the
same time, do want you to appreciate the extent of the YB Project that we
volunteers and professional translators continue to make progress with,
month in and month out.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
December:

We have added in one new book:

- Torchin, Ukraine (Torchin, our lost but not forgotten town)
www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Torchin/Torchin.html

We have added in 10 new entries:

- Akmene, Lithuania (Preserving Our Litvak Heritage)

OPPENHEIMER from Kusel or Pfalz or Bavaria to Iowa #usa

Eric Mack
 

Two weeks ago, I stumbled on an entire branch of my wife's family that we
hadn't known about.

I was looking in the index to the Chicago Sentinel for any information
about her grandmother, Augusta BIRKNER, nee OPPENHEIMER, when I saw a 1922
death notice for a Jacob OPPENHEIMER who had lived in Iowa, but had died
in Augusta's hometown, Steinbach am Glan, Germany.

In the past two weeks, I discovered that many numerous OPPENHEIMER
relatives had settled in Iowa before 1880.

If anyone else is researching this family, please contact me.

Cemetery Visit - Ohio? #germany

Judith Berlowitz <jberlowitz331@...>
 

Dear SIGgers,

I have several LEVINSON family members buried in Section One at Adath
Israel Cemetery in Price Hill (Hamilton Co.), OH. Most of the
relationships are clear, but there is an older LEVINSON, Lewin
(1793-1861), buried there whose relationship to the others I'd
like to know. Unfortunately, his monument appears very worn, and though
I have a photograph, >from FindaGrave, the Hebrew inscription is
illegible. Is there anyone among you who might volunteer to visit the
cemetery and photograph or otherwise copy Lewin's marker and
that of D[avid] S. LEVINSON (1804-1882)? I would like to know if parents
or patronymics are mentioned in the inscriptions. I believe that
D[avid] S. was also born in Rogozno/Rogasen but did not see it on the
FindaGrave photo.

Here are the locations:

Lewin LEVINSON: Section 1, Lot 143, Grave 95; D[avid] S. LEVINSON:
Section 1, Lot 130, Grave 253.

David's sons: Jacob (Sec 1, Lot 143, Grv 118); Mayer (Sec 1,

Finally, if any of you are LEVINSON descendants and have done your dna
I'd be very interested, as I do have the dna of my

whom I'm hypothesizing to be the sister of Lewin L.

Will be very grateful for any responses.

German SIG #Germany Cemetery Visit - Ohio? #germany

Judith Berlowitz <jberlowitz331@...>
 

Dear SIGgers,

I have several LEVINSON family members buried in Section One at Adath
Israel Cemetery in Price Hill (Hamilton Co.), OH. Most of the
relationships are clear, but there is an older LEVINSON, Lewin
(1793-1861), buried there whose relationship to the others I'd
like to know. Unfortunately, his monument appears very worn, and though
I have a photograph, >from FindaGrave, the Hebrew inscription is
illegible. Is there anyone among you who might volunteer to visit the
cemetery and photograph or otherwise copy Lewin's marker and
that of D[avid] S. LEVINSON (1804-1882)? I would like to know if parents
or patronymics are mentioned in the inscriptions. I believe that
D[avid] S. was also born in Rogozno/Rogasen but did not see it on the
FindaGrave photo.

Here are the locations:

Lewin LEVINSON: Section 1, Lot 143, Grave 95; D[avid] S. LEVINSON:
Section 1, Lot 130, Grave 253.

David's sons: Jacob (Sec 1, Lot 143, Grv 118); Mayer (Sec 1,
Lot 139, Grv 139), Philip (Sec. 1, Lot 73, Grv 711) `

Finally, if any of you are LEVINSON descendants and have done your dna
I'd be very interested, as I do have the dna of my
ggggrandmother, Elisheva/Sheba/Jennie LEVINSON LOEWENBERG. (1787-1888),
whom I'm hypothesizing to be the sister of Lewin L.

Will be very grateful for any responses.
