Eakternislav researcher? #belarus

Hilary Henkin <propper@...>
 

Dear Belarus group,

I submitted this query to the new Ekaternislav Research Group last week,
but haven't found anyone with a positive answer yet. Since that group
is somewhat new, perhaps some of you here will have more knowledge.

Some time ago, the website for the Dnepropetrovsk (Ekaternislav) Regional
Archives was posted to JGen or Belarus-SIG.
http://www.sadr.com.ua/page1.html

I'm contemplating writing them about getting my grandfather's birth
record. Has anyone had contact with them? Any details on procedures,
time, and cost?

Any idea what they have?

For that matter, anyone successfully used researchers there? (If you
have a specific researcher, please reply privately)

Galicia Luncheon in SLC #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero <rkpollero@...>
 

I am happy to announce that 78 Conference attendees have already
registered for the Galicia Luncheon (as of April 30).

There is still time to register (or update your registration) for the
Galicia Luncheon, if you wish to attend. It will be held on Tuesday,
July 11 >from 12:15 - 1:45 p.m.. Mark Heckman, Gesher Galicia webmaster,
will speak on "A Galitzianer's Journey."

According to Gladys Paulin, Luncheon Coordinator, "about 60% of the
early registrants signed up for at least one luncheon. This a fantastic
response for the first time we offered luncheons!"

Gladys added that registrations for the luncheons are urged to be in
advance since the hotel requires head count at least 3 business days in
advance and while we can make a few last minute additions, we will not
be able to accept sign ups for advance registrants in Salt lake City.

Looking forward to seeing you in SLC! Join us for lunch!

Harold,

This question was posted sometime ago, since I am not researching
Mogilev, I didn't keep the info.

Write to Waldheim Cemetery Co. They should certainly know.

Hi Ernie

You have come up with a good case not to test. >from the explanation
of the relationships I didn't see any cousins in the FFF or MMM linage
that would allow us to obtain the clean shot that DNA testing require.
Folks remember, If you want to find relationships that cross >from male
to female to male, then you must have living cousins to help. That
means that you will need to have families that had many children.

The on-line discussion in the past week has been interesting!

In six weeks I hope to visit my "distant cousin" Eric in Chicago. We are
from the same city in Germany (Nuremberg), went to Realgymnasium together,
and believe we KNOW how we are related to one another.

Here is the link between his and my ancestral lines:

Eric's maternal grandFATHER and my maternal GREAT-grandmother
were brother-and-sister!

Eric and I have other things in common: Our parents died years ago, we
have no sisters, but we are blessed with children, both boys and girls,

My cousin Gabriele's maternal grandparents are my
maternal grandparents... Gaby has two (BEAUTIFUL!) daughters.

In any statistical test, there is an "expected" (or "most likely")
outcome that is predictable, based on an analysis of the "population"
being tested and of the test procedure.

Suppose in our family's situation, we wanted to do the relevant tests not
only to verify relationships, but to test for mutations...

QUESTIONS
1. Can your tests verify the relation between Eric and my cousin Gaby's
daughters?
2. What would be the probability of a FALSE NEGATIVE if my ancestral
great-grandmother, instead of being the sister of Eric's maternal
grandFATHER, had been a sister of Eric's maternal grandMOTHER?

Bennett, I hope this is a valid example to illustrate how female test
planning must be carefully examined before committing to the tests
themselves...

Thank you for your patience in trying to help us understand what is
involved, and what are both the promises and the limitations of the
approach!

genomic DNA and / or mitochondrial DNA? #dna

bcg@...
 

Hi Dr. Baumal

Yes we also test males for the mtDNA that they receive form the mother.
Both of these tests are performed routinely for Jewishgen referred
customers.
The price of both tests is currently $219 (USD)
Yes, both of the results will be prepared and databased to be used for
potential matches in the future.

Thanks for asking the questions, I hope that this is now clear to all
interested parties.

Dr. Baumal Asked:


In addition to preparing genomic DNA >from the buccal smear, which allows
you to assess the 11Y chromosome markers that provide information about
patrilineal descent and whether one is a Kohen, do you also prepare
mitochondrial DNA >from the same buccal smear, which would provide
information about matrilineal descent? Are both of these types of DNA
prepared routinely >from each buccal smear or does one have to ask for
this to be done? If both are done, is the price still $219 (American
funds)? If both of these types of DNA are prepared, are 2 profiles
released to the database-one showing the profile for patrilineal
descent and the other showing the profile for matrilineal descent?

LESAR [LESER, LEZER,LEZAR,LESAAR, LEZAAR] WINTERBACH, LEGUM #general

Isaac Van Rensburg [ MTN - Alice Lane ] <vanre_is@...>
 

Dear Sir,

I am writing to you after exhausting all other resources in South Africa,
where I live.

I am looking for information on the origin, ancestry and siblings of my
great grand parents LESAR and WINTERBACH on my father's side of the family
tree, and hope you can possibly help me or refer me to the right
place/person.

Izak LEZAR, possibly married to Ida Sarah Edda, (unknown maiden name) was
the father of Sarah Johanna LESAR (Note different spelling shown on her
marriage certificate) born 3 Dec 1871. Family legend has it they were
Jewish or of Jewish descent, but this has not been verified.

Sarah Johanna LESAR married my grandfather Gert Hendrik JANSE VAN RENSBURG
and named their second son Isaac Frederick Thomas VAN RENSBURG. It is
believed that he was named after Sarah Johanna's father Izak.

Dirk WINTERBACH was the father of Louis George WINTERBACH, born 10 Sep 1866
in Tulbach, Cape, South Africa. Family legend has it he came >from either
Netherlands or Germany. His daughter (my grandmother) was named after him -
Louis George WINTERBACH, and she married my grandfather Isaac Frederick
Thomas, son of Sarah Johanna LESAR.

On my mother's side, my great grandmother, Petronella Hermiena RUTHVEN,
born abt. 1889 in Transvaal, South Africa, married a LEGUM.
Unfortunately I have no other information about him, except that
apparently he was also Jewish.

I would very much appreciate any help I can find.

Thank you in anticipation,

Isaac Frederick Thomas van Rensburg
