What is the purpose for the research?
If the intent is for the submitter to obtain personal geneological
aid on an exploratory journey with cooperative other customers, then
FTDNA is the best. If the intent is to get a midrange overview of
one's genetic makeup along with some medical infomation, then 23andMe
is superior.
Ancestry sells a product that contains estimates and questionable
customer family trees.

Re: Nanny BRUCK married to David COHN #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Allan:
The BRUCK family lived in Oels for only a short while. The records on
LDS 1184444 show that David BRUCK and family (including 16-year-old
Anna) moved there >from Neisse (now Nysa) in Feb. 1843 and moved to
Breslau (Wroclaw) a few months later. However, David's wife Babette
died in Oels in early 1844.

David COHN was a leather merchant in Oels. So was Marcus BRUCK, who
moved there >from Neisse in 1842. He moved "to his parents" in Breslau
in 1846.

I hope to have the Olesnica/Oels records up at JRI-Poland before too
long. Have fun with the many, many Nysa records there!

By the way, the sources for both Nysa and Olesnica are typed
transcriptions made in the 1930s >from originals now lost. So there's no
verifying this information beyond the transcription.

also possible that Nanny's last name was spelled BROOK or BROOKS, which is a

If anybody knows of any Nanny BRUCK or BROOK I would be happy to learn

Family History Pages Course will begin October 1 #poland

Phyllis Kramer
 

Do you have a lot of genealogical family material to share and want to
organize it into a set of images, but don't know how? Marlis Humphrey
will explain and demonstrate how to create image rich family history
pages for your family. Students will learn how to layout, design, and
edit a quality family history page set for two ancestors, that can be
broadened at a later time. You will learn to include documents like
census, naturalization and photographs of your family, heirlooms and
memorabilia .Students will discover sources of digital resources
(templates, fonts, etc.) for formatting, and will walk through a
project using Photoshop Elements 10 for editing. you will learn how to
format the pages for printing using Shutterfly.

The goal is to give students the basic PSE10 skills needed to complete
your family history pages. Those students who master this formatting
can enroll in the follow-on course to make covers, spines and backs
required to make the mini-book print-ready.
