Re: The Jews of Rochester #general

I don't know why I am always overwhelmed when so many GENNERS respond to a
query. I always respond when I can help someone. Why am I surprised when
someone responds to me?

Nearly 30 fabulous GENNERS offered a myriad of suggestions how to get a copy
of the book, "The Jews of Rochester" published in 1912, out of print for
many years. Some Genners offered to go to a library near them and make
copies for me. Others suggested I go to Amazon and e-Bay; told me stories of
their family in Rochester, made the connection to my Rochester families,
sent me the names of booksellers, book dealers, discussed the Mt Hope
Cemetery where they are all buried, some went to the trouble to look things
up for me and sent me links to various sites, etc.

A million thanks to every person who responded.

Jan, the given names in your family indicate descendancy >from
Rafael Meisles, author of the book "Tosfot Shabath" . He was born
around 1700, and died in 1778. Among his children: (1) Alexander
Sender (2) Moshe (3) Chaim . The names ran in the family, given
after the ancestors of the "Tosfot Shabath". So your family probably
descends >from either him or his siblings - I don't have info on them.

Re: Help - Locating Missing Person - PARNES family #general

Sally Bruckheimer
 

Well, you have checked a lot of the possibilities. She may have used
another name (Sarah?), she may have died, she may have married.

She also may have gone elsewhere or emigrated - to Liverpool, back to
wherever she came from; to the US, Australia, Israel, South Africa, anywhere.
She may have gone with a friend or gone to a fiance or relative.

You could check www.stevenmorse.org online - I don't really know enough to
know whether someone on the list is likely her or not. For the rest of the
places, you will have to see what is possible.

And if she went elsewhere, she may have used one of the other names - which
makes it even more difficult.

I was searching a girl who married my ggrandfather's brother, with the
surname of my ggrandmother's foster father, trying to figure out where the
foster father came from. When I finally found a record with her birth place,
she was born in the town my ggrandmother came >from (a tiny place with few
Jewish families), and was probably my ggrandmother's sister, using the
surname of the people who would pick her up at the ship in NYC.

Trying to figure out what happened to her can be harder than trying to figure
out where people came from. Good luck,

Re: A Jewish woman explores her family's past in Eastern Europe #general

Howard Margol
 

Linda Epstein's article about her trip to Eastern Europe is interesting
but I would like to point out one bit of misinformation included in her
article about the gravestones in Panevezys, Lithuania.

The gravestones were not removed >from the Jewish cemetery, and used as
building material, during the Holocaust. That was done by the Soviets during
the 1950-1960's. The Nazis did not care about Jewish cemeteries because
those Jews were already dead.

DC2011: Family panel Jewish genetic diseases at Genealogy conference #latvia

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Th-409 "Genzyme Panel: Our Heritage and Our Health"
Thursday, August 18, 2011 >from 2:15 PM - 5:00 PM

1 in 5 Ashkenazi Jews is a carrier of a gene mutation for at least one of 19
preventable diseases for which screening is available. These diseases occur
with greater frequency in the AJ population. Some are life-threatening and
may lead to death in childhood. The most well-known Jewish genetic disease
is Tay-Sachs disease. Since screening for Tay-Sachs was introduced in the
1970's the number of babies with Tay-Sachs born in the Jewish community has
dropped by 90%. Most babies born today with Tay-Sachs disease do not have
Ashekanzi Jewish ancestry.

The panel of family members at the Genealogy conference will introduce you
to some of the other diseases for which we need to raise awareness in the
Jewish community and ensure that all young adults are screened for prior to
starting a family. Since a carrier is healthy and has no outward signs of
being a carrier , a blood test is essential to find out of one is a carrier.
The only other way to find out is after the birth of an affected child.

This panel aims to provide a personal perspective about what some of the
diseases are, how they affect the individual and the impact on the family.
Our panel members are Susan Stillman, the mother of a 13 year old son with
familial dysautonomia; Joy Paul whose niece, Allison, passed away from
Canavan disease. Dana Doheny is the mother of a 30 year old young man with
cystic fibrosis who recently had a lung transplant and Cyndi Frank has
Gaucher disease and will talk to you about living with Gaucher disease and
how it is managed and the impact on her life. Each person will tell their
story and there will be time for a discussion with the panel who will be
happy to answer the questions >from the audience. Faciliators of this panel
will be Gary Frohlich, MS, CGC and Adele Schneider, MD, FACMG.

This program is made possible by an educational grant >from Genzyme
Corporation.
