fotocopy and full record #poland

Robin Levine <robinllevine@...>
 

Good morning,

I was instructed that for records that are less than 100 yrs old I
should write a letter to the registry offices in both Lublin and Chelm
in order to obtain a fotocopy and full record about 33 z. This
will verify who I am when I request documents in person. Does anyone
know anything about what to include in this type of letter? I am
unclear how much genealogical information to include (how many names,
dates, etc. and how far back?) Also, do I need it certified by a
Notary Public?

Also, does anyone know of someone who could translate my letter in to
Polish? The clock is ticking as I will be in Poland at the end of
December.
Thank you kindly.

Best,
Robin Levine

MyHeritage Launches MyHeritage DNA #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On 7 November MyHeritage launched MyHeritage DNA - a DNA testing service for
uncovering ethnic origins and making new family connections. The lab that is
doing the testing is GenebyGene in Houston, Texas, the same laboratory that
processes the FamilyTree DNA tests. The test is a check swab which when you
purchase the kit, and it arrives take the sample and send it back to the lab
for processing.

In its initial version, MyHeritage DNA provides two main features: detailed
ethnicity reports that map the user's ethnic and geographic origins, and DNA
Matches for finding relatives. The initial reports currently include 25
ethnicities, but this will improve thanks to MyHeritage's unique Founder
Population project unveiled when they announced their DNA product. More than
5000 participants have been handpicked for this project by MyHeritage >from
its 85 million members, by virtue of their family trees exemplifying consistent
ancestry >from the same region or ethnicity for many generations.

In the next few months, the project will be completed, resulting in a rich DNA
data set of more than 100 ethnicities. Standard ethnicity reports are currently
available, with the expert reports to be released at no additional cost to
users following the completion of the Founder Population project.

With the launch of MyHeritage DNA, the company will cease to offer DNA kits
of other vendors. Users who have already tested their DNA on other services
are welcome for a limited time to upload their DNA data to MyHeritage at no
cost to benefit >from free DNA Matches.

MyHeritage DNA is integrated with the other services provided by MyHeritage
on all web and mobile platforms, as well as offered on a dedicated
standalone mobile app named MyHeritage DNA.

MyHeritage and MyHeritage DNA are available in 42 languages.

For more information about MyHeritage DNA including their introductory
pricing see their blog at:
http://blog.myheritage.com/2016/11/introducing-myheritage-dna/

As this is a totally new service for MyHeritage I am posting about this new
testing service.

I have no affiliation with MyHeritage and am sharing this information solely
for the information of the reader.

Rabbi Moshe BURMAN #rabbinic

atemkina1206@...
 

Dear All,
I am great-granddaughter of Rabbi Moshe BURMAN >from Kaluga (Russia,
180 km >from Moscow). He was born in Olkeniki, Trakai uezd, Vilno
gubernia, Russian Empire (now Valkininkai, Varena district
municipality, Alytus County, Lithuania) on August 30th 1873
(according to the family list I found in All Lithuania Revision List
Database, Archive / Fond LVIA/515/25­/144b). He probably studied in
Slabodka yeshiva. He left to Kaluga after 1904 but before 1910, when
he is listed as a head of the prayer house there in a special
official calendar for Kaluga for 1910. He was a very learned man and
even learned Russian by himself. He helped to build a sinagogue in
Kaluga which is still there (and even in use), it is said in our
family that it is a replica of one of the sinagogues of Vilno, but
we do not know which one.
Could please someone advise me where should I check if some
imformation can be obtained about his life before he left home to be
rabbi in Kaluga?
Best regards,
Assya Temkina
Moscow, Russia

Hello,

I would be grateful for any information you may have on the STOCKHAMER
family, >from Rawa Ruska (also known as Rava / Rawa Russkaya), Ukraine.

Before World War I, that town was in Galicia, part of the Austro-Hungarian
empire. Between WW I and WW II, it was part of Poland. Afterwards, it was
in the Ukrainian S.S.R. of the Soviet Union, and after that dissolved, it has
been part of the country of Ukraine.

The family is of "Cohen" heritage. The town is close to the Poland-Ukraine
border, northwest of Lvov (Lviv).

Thanks in advance for your help.
