I'm researching the possible meaning of the surname MALUS/MALES.

For now, I came up with two possible meanings:

- It derives >from the woman's given name Mali, as a possible ancestor.
- It derives >from the Polish word "maluszke" or Russian word "maluchik",
meaning "little boy" or "someone of small size".
"Malus" could be Persian/Farsi for Hebr. "noam" [cf "Naomi"], Engl. "cute"

Jewish Genealogical Society (NY) Meeting November 18 #general

Harriet Mayer
 

Jewish Genealogical Society New York Meeting
Sunday, November 18 at 2 PM
at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, 36 Battery Place, NY NY

"DNA Successes In--And In Spite Of--Endogamy"
Speaker: Lara Diamond

Genetic genealogy is much more complicated when dealing with endogamous
populations than the general population, and many people get frustrated
when trying to identify actual relatives >from the mass of genetic cousins
who are in fact related quite further back. Learn how you can have success
when dealing with endogamy by examining stories >from the speaker's own
family's DNA, which include reuniting with branches thought killed in the
Holocaust.

Lara Diamond has been researching her family for 25 years, starting as a
middle school student. She has traced all branches of her family multiple
generations back in Europe using Russian Empire-era and Austria-Hungarian
Empire records. Most of her research is in modern day Ukraine, with a
smattering of Belarus and Poland. As an Ashkenazic Jew, she gets to have
particular fun with her completely endogamous genome.Lara is president of
the Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland, leads JewishGen's Subcarpathian
SIG, and is on the JewishGen Ukraine SIG board of directors. She also runs
multiple district-and town-focused projects to collect documentation to
assist all those researching ancestors >from common towns. She blogs
about DNA and her Eastern European research at
http://larasgenealogy.blogspot.com .

This meeting is co-sponsored by JewishGen.org.
There is no charge for this meeting.

Re: Why so few matches? #dna

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

To answer Cindy g question "Why so few matches?, the first thing when
working with the Y-DNA is most males' mutations are lost because they have
no males on their direct paternal line. All males and females are from
the same two persons, one male and one female, that lived most likely at
different times. They were not the only people living then, therefore all
of others had their direct lines died out. For example, if one third of
the males have no sons, than only half of them will have grandsons by
their paternal line. As an example, my grandfather had seven sons. They
have only 5 sons. >from them, I was the only one with sons, 3 of them.
from them I only have one grandson. If he does not have any, the paternal
line will be gone.

Secondly the Y-DNA testing used STRs to find matches. Almost all the
mutations on them are the kind that a STR either lose or gain one compete
repeat at a time. However, at very rare time it is not a single repeat
but a multiple repeats or even a partial repeat. Beside this there are
several other type of mutation that could happened. By looking a only a
few people it is impossible to tell what type of mutation occurred. That
the reason haplogroup projects are so useful. I have a cousin who family
history is Cohenim. He has zero matches at the 12 markers level, only 2
at genetic distance of 2 at the 25 level, and only 4 at genetic distance
of 4 at the 37 level. What happened is that on a single marker, he was
few repeats off >from that of the Cohenim Module Haplogroup. He, or his
father, grandfather, or earlier, had the mutation of multiple repeats,
thus no close matches since each repeat is counted as one genetic
distance.

Miller Judith <gmajudymiller@...>
 

I only have six matches on my cousin’s ydna. Greenspan told me years
ago I was lucky to be here as that haplogroup was very sparse, perhaps
due to pogroms or disease like black death.

** Galician Profiles: This category includes biographical profiles of
Jewish writers, musicians, artists, mathematicians, and political
figures who were active in Galicia.

** Other Topics: Jewish emigration >from Galicia (why and by what
route), the Jewish press in Galicia (the language and target

Yiddish translation help #general

R Jaffer
 

I need help translating the street names and small map key for the
town of Lipcani in the former Bessarabia. The map can be viewed at:
https://digitalcollections.nypl.org/items/118fda30-6c60-0133-1885-00505686d14e#/?uuid=12ed1110-6c60-0133-a681-00505686d14e
[or https://tinyurl.com/y8rd982o --Mod.]

If you can help, please contact me directly and I will send you the
map along with a blank version you could print and then use to hand
write the English translation. You would then scan or take a picture
of the translated map and send it to me.

I am heading a project to translate and make available on JewishGen all
the town maps for Bessarabia.

Thank you,
