How to interpret "% Jewish" in a DNA report? #dna

Sandy Breemes <sbreeme1@...>
 

I recently found out that on Ancestry I am 20% Jewish and on 23andme I
am 23% Jewish a fact that I didn't know. I am wondering if by the amount
you can tell how far back in my line this is? I would love to know which
side it is on but that is something I guess I will never know. I wish
they would have had this when my family was still alive, perhaps they
would have known but no one ever talked about this. Of course no one is
as interested as I am either. I can't get any of my family to have their
dna tested.

Re: Only one Y match #dna

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

Jackie Wasserstein wrote "My brother took the Y67 DNA test in 2013. After
3 years he only has one match. How is this possible?". The answer is
there are 5 different type of markers mutations beside the most common
type of an increase or decease of one repeat. Your brother may have one
of the five types. After a mutation occurred, there are no direct
paternal offsprings in most cases after a few generations, so most
mutations are lost. My cousin, who is a Cohenim, has one of the other
mutations on a Cohen Modal Haplotype's marker and his result on 12 markers
is no matches.

22 June 1941 #bessarabia

Dear researchers,

I was out of communication for a while, because I have trouble with my computer/hard drive/emails.

First I want to let you know that if you did not get an answer >from me, I usually am trying to reply
promptly, but if I did not, please re-send your message to me.

22 June 1941 - 75 years ago, Germans with allies Romanians attacked the Soviet Union and the
Great Patriotic War started. That was saddest day in the history of the Soviet Union and especially
the Jews in the Soviet Union.

Some of the Western regions of the USSR were occupied by advancing armies almost immediately
on 2nd, 3rd days of the war. Bessarabia was bombarded right away, but the troops entered Bessarabia
only after 2 weeks! That delay allowed many Jews to evacuate to the East. Some men were drafted to
the army. Who were not evacuated? Elderly and sick people, also some, who remembered Germans in
the WWI, did not want to go anywhere "they survived WWI and will survive WWII"
Some of those who were evacuated to the East did not survive the journey: died >from the
bombardments, diseases, also many Bessarabian Jews were trapped in Odessa, and were killed.

If you are interested in details of evacuation, and life before and during the war, I have a set memoirs
written by my mother, Khinka Kogan (Spivak) who were among evacuees to Uzbekistan:

Seeking Info Dr. Efraim Simon HOENIG MD and Family from Eger (Cheb), Bohemia (Czech Republic) #germany

from Leo Hoenig - <hoenig453@aol.com>
Hi
I'm looking for information about Dr. Efraim Simon HOENIG MD,
his wife and their two daughters who lived in Eger, Bohemia
(now Cheb, Czech Republic).

Dr. HONIG [O umlaut] was born in Kirchenbirk, Bohemia
on (June 18, 1865/Kirchenbirk (the 14th of 15 children of Josef
HOENIG and Theresa TAUSSIG). He was a physician in Eger, and ived at
15 Bahnhofstrasse. He died there >from a heart attack at 2 pm on June
30, 1915. On January 17, 1893 in Marienbad he married Louise Charlotte
BECK (born about 1868 to Viel BECK of Marienbad and Francisca Fischer
from Neustadt).
Louise Charlotte died after her husband, but I do not know where or
when. They had two daughters born in Eger, Gertrud HOENIG, born on
December 11, 1894, and Lilly Josefine HOENIG, born on November 23,

found about the fate or life of these HOENIGs.

Judis Hadasse LEVI: Questions about Frankfurt Birth Records #germany

Liz Hanellin
 

Dear GerSIGers,

I have posted before about my great-aunt Jenny (Jeannette) LEVI, geb.
FRANKENTHALER (b. Feb 25, 1898 in Untereisenheim) and her daughter,
Judis Hadasse LEVI, (b. June 2, 1941 in Frankfurt -- Jenny and her
husband were internally deported to Frankfurt in 1939).

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any records relating to either
Jenny or Judis Hadasse after Judis Hadasse was born. (Incidentally, Jenny's
husband was Ludwig LEVI, b. April 10, 1909, in Mannheim,
but he is not the focus of this email.).

I have received three documents related to Judis' Hadasse's birth >from the
International Tracing Service. One of them lists the mother and the date of
birth (June 2, 1941), but not the name of the child (or the father). This
document lists 17 German Jewish women who gave birth between January 1941
and July 1941, all using the same "hebamme" (midwife), "Frau Th. Wiegand,"
who signed the document on August 28, 1948. The address listed with Frau
Wiegand's name is Saalsburgstrasse 5.

There is another document that lists Judis Hadasse's name, birthdate and
Parents’ names; the document is dated, January 22, 1948.

And, finally, I have a copy of the "Gerburtsurkunde" for Judis Hadasse LEVI
listing her birthdate and parents’ names, and which is dated Nov. 25, 1947.

I would like to ask a few questions about the birth records:

Is there a way to find out anything about the "midwife," Frau Th. Wiegand?
I would also like to know what kind of place would Saalsburgstrasse 5 have
Been - where were these women giving birth?

What is the significance of the documents being dated 1947 and 1948 rather
than 1941? Were such official documents not being certified at the time of
the birth because of the war?

Also is it correct to assume that the issuance of Judis Hadasse's birth
certificate in 1947 had nothing to do with whether she was still alive
at that time?

A lot of questions, I know! As always, thank you for your suggestions,
thoughts and insights. Best,
