American Jewish women returning to pre WWII Poland to marry? #general

Susan <susan.lieberman@...>
 

At dinner on Rosh Hashanah a woman told me the following story. In 1936
or 1937 her mother and her aunt both single and living in Brooklyn --
very timid women -- went back to Poland near Warsaw where they were
born and married men so the men became eligible to come to the United
States as husbands of American citizens. Her question was how did this
happen ? Did some organization send them?

ViewMate translation/handwriting help - French #general

Deborah Blinder
 

I've posted a vital record in French with which I need a little help.
It is the birth record for my uncle Jaques BLENDER (known as Jacob
BLINDER in the United States). I don't need a full translation,
because my French is good enough for me to read and understand the
document, but I'm having trouble with the handwriting in one word and
one name.

The document is on ViewMate at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM50437
with full details of where I need help. Please respond via the form
provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

Bychawa (Lublin) Projects Moving Ahead! #general

RobinnM@...
 

Dear fellow researchers!

If you have an interest in Bychawa, an interesting little town in the
Lublin region whose pre-war Jewish population was something like 80% of
the town... I have good news for you! Please contact me as we have new
data of interest including but not limited to full extractions of the
Cyrillic years.

This is one of my ancestral towns, and so I've collected data back into
the 1790's which is unusual, but there was a surviving Kahal register
from that time period in the Lublin branch of the Polish State Archives.
Can't go into detail here, but if you are interested in Bychawa, and
willing to participate in my current research adventure, please contact me
privately at: RobinnM@aol.com. Hope to hear >from old and new friends, and
to all... Shanah Tovah!

historical context, please -- Poland just before WWI #general

Deborah Long <debbietheteacher@...>
 

Dear Colleagues,

I recently received this translation of a comment about a great-uncle:
"[He was] permanently dismissed >from the military unit by the verdict
dated 19^th October 1906 #1735. The verdict of the World Congress of the
regional patrol of the Tribunal of June 9th, 1908 year, No. 7011
sentenced to prison for three months. Accepted into military service in
1908. Enlisted in the militia on 10th November, 1910."

The comment can be found in a Polish census for the town of Jezow near
Lodz.

Could anyone please offer some context for what was happening at this
time in this part of Poland and why my relative would have been sent to
prison? And if he was "permanently dismissed," why did he enlist in the
militia later? Or is this perhaps an example of forced conscription?
What is the World Congress?

Thanks for any help.

What sources are available to prove that someone lived in the US for the
years 1964 - 2007?
Specifically Texas and West Virginia.

There are several people finders online. Which is your favorite and
which should I avoid?

Where to start in DNA testing #dna

Kathy Lorber
 

I am new to DNA testing and would like to start in a logical and cost
effective way. Is it best to test myself(female) or my mother(who is 90)?
Would I start with an autosomal DNA test or do the mtDNA test? Should I
have my brother do the Y-DNA or the autosomal test(my father is deceased)?
Also, on my husband's side should I start with my husband or my son, and
should they do autosomal or Y-DNA testing?

Is it best to begin with FTDNA or start with Ancestry autosomal testing? I
realize the best answer may be all of the above, but I am trying to get a
start in DNA research in a logical manner. If anyone has developed a step
approach to DNA testing I would like to hear about it. Any suggestions
would be most appreciated.
