OPPENHEIMER from Kusel or Pfalz or Bavaria to Iowa #usa

Eric Mack
 

Two weeks ago, I stumbled on an entire branch of my wife's family that we
hadn't known about.

I was looking in the index to the Chicago Sentinel for any information
about her grandmother, Augusta BIRKNER, nee OPPENHEIMER, when I saw a 1922
death notice for a Jacob OPPENHEIMER who had lived in Iowa, but had died
in Augusta's hometown, Steinbach am Glan, Germany.

In the past two weeks, I discovered that many numerous OPPENHEIMER
relatives had settled in Iowa before 1880.

If anyone else is researching this family, please contact me.

Cemetery Visit - Ohio? #germany

Judith Berlowitz <jberlowitz331@...>
 

Dear SIGgers,

I have several LEVINSON family members buried in Section One at Adath
Israel Cemetery in Price Hill (Hamilton Co.), OH. Most of the
relationships are clear, but there is an older LEVINSON, Lewin
(1793-1861), buried there whose relationship to the others I'd
like to know. Unfortunately, his monument appears very worn, and though
I have a photograph, >from FindaGrave, the Hebrew inscription is
illegible. Is there anyone among you who might volunteer to visit the
cemetery and photograph or otherwise copy Lewin's marker and
that of D[avid] S. LEVINSON (1804-1882)? I would like to know if parents
or patronymics are mentioned in the inscriptions. I believe that
D[avid] S. was also born in Rogozno/Rogasen but did not see it on the
FindaGrave photo.

Here are the locations:

Lewin LEVINSON: Section 1, Lot 143, Grave 95; D[avid] S. LEVINSON:
Section 1, Lot 130, Grave 253.

David's sons: Jacob (Sec 1, Lot 143, Grv 118); Mayer (Sec 1,
Lot 139, Grv 139), Philip (Sec. 1, Lot 73, Grv 711) `

Finally, if any of you are LEVINSON descendants and have done your dna
I'd be very interested, as I do have the dna of my
ggggrandmother, Elisheva/Sheba/Jennie LEVINSON LOEWENBERG. (1787-1888),
whom I'm hypothesizing to be the sister of Lewin L.

Will be very grateful for any responses.

Researching the KATZ family from the Pandelys Stetl and the DERMAN family from Kaunas #lithuania

jonathan goldstine
 

My grandfather, WILLIAM KATZ, was born in Pandelys around 1886 and
emigrated to NYC in the early 1900s. He owned a shoe store in Manhattan
for many years on Columbus Ave. his parents were JOSEPH and FANNIE BRILL.
His sister, SARA MASHE, married LOUIS DERMAN, who I think was >from Kaunas
stetl based on NYC records. WILLIAM had a younger brother, NATHAH, who
emigrated to NYC in the early 1900s.

Any advice or pointers on research are much appreciated.

I have joined the Kaunas and Zarasai DRGs and am working to learn about
Lithuanian Jewish genealogy.

I have done autosomal dna with family tree dna.

Re: DNA tests in Israel #dna

Avshalom Zoossmann-Diskin
 

The law in Israel does not forbid DNA tests for genealogy. It does
forbid genetic testing for parentage without a court order, (to protect
children >from being declared Mamzerim according to Jewish law) and does
require registration for those having a genetic database.

Israelis test freely with the American companies Family Tree DNA and 23
And Me, which do not come under Israeli Jurisdiction. Ancestry does not
send its kits to Israel, and MyHeritage as an Israeli company does not
sell kits to Israelis, but I think that they do allow you to upload your
raw data >from other companies.

Is that really so - no statement like that should be published without
citing the actual facts - it is just hearsay.

I would, at a minimum, want to know which Israeli 'law' this is -
definitely not the one that has been proposed to be used to establish
the right of return for former citizens of the FSU. I match with dozens
of Israeli kits on myHeritage and FTDNA and cannot imagine they, or the
various DNA testing centres based in Israel, are breaking or bending
the law but I'm happy to learn new facts!

The ancestors >from my Shapiro line lived in Lubny and Ekaterinslav, Most left Europe except Yitchuk and Yomtov Gutman. One of them went to Ekaterinslav, which one I do not know. IT has been so many years and know one know what happened..I believe the line died out. The father was Benjamin and his father was Aron. Benjamin married Eta Moskovitz >from Timimkovichi,
Has anyone dealt with this line? Anyone done successfully research in Ekaterinslav?
I wrote years ago the historic museum in Lubny, I got a nice letter back saying...all records destroyed. I have pics of Lubny taken by a friend.
Any help would be appreciated..Gayle

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Shapiro's from Lubny and Ekaterinslav #ukraine

Gayle Schlissel Riley
 

The ancestors >from my Shapiro line lived in Lubny and Ekaterinslav, Most left Europe except Yitchuk and Yomtov Gutman. One of them went to Ekaterinslav, which one I do not know. IT has been so many years and know one know what happened..I believe the line died out. The father was Benjamin and his father was Aron. Benjamin married Eta Moskovitz >from Timimkovichi,
Has anyone dealt with this line? Anyone done successfully research in Ekaterinslav?
I wrote years ago the historic museum in Lubny, I got a nice letter back saying...all records destroyed. I have pics of Lubny taken by a friend.
Any help would be appreciated..Gayle
