Lillian Faffer
 

The Suwalki/Lomza Birds of a Feather meeting has been scheduled for
Monday, August 3rd in Philadelphia during the 29th Annual International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy. Researchers are welcome to bring lunch
with them to this meeting which will be held during the lunch break.

I am excited to announce that we will have as our special guest at the
meeting Regina Kopilevich, a well known tour guide and researcher for our
areas. Regina will start off our meeting by answering pre-submitted
questions about travel and research in local (town) archives in the area.
Regina’s brief, about ten minutes, time with us is being made possible
with the cooperation of the Litvak SIG and the Conference Committee, both
organizations which are jointly sponsoring her attendance at the
conference. Kindly submit your questions to me by June 20th, so that we
can forward them to Regina and give her time to do any research necessary
to provide the best possible answers during this her busiest time of the
year.

The meeting will continue with

1. an update of recently completed projects as well as projects in
progress by all groups working with records >from these areas.

2. self introduction by each attendee by name with a brief statement
of the towns and families they are researching

3. sharing of research successes and problems as time permits.

Please note that in view of the short time Regina will be with us,
submission of questions must be limited to those researchers who are
planning on attending this meeting. Also, keep in mind that the Litvak
SIG would be pleased to receive contributions of any size, to help pay
for the cost of Regina’s attendance at the conference. LitvakSIG is a
non-profit 501(c)3 corporation. Contributions to LitvakSIG may be made

Re: Plunge #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Dear Beryl:

There are thousands of records for Plunge which appear in the All-Lithuania
Database (ALD) on JewishGen. Perhaps the lack of records you are referring
to is when you looked by your family name.

Also, there may be records for Plunge and/or Plunge families which have not
yet been put on-line yet. I suggest you contact the district coordinator to
find out the status of the records.

It may be that your family was not registered in Plunge and therefore their
records may be in another shtetl altogether. Another option is that they
did not live in Plunge for that long a period and therefore missed being
included in any recordkeeping in the town.

As I believe I have mentioned to you previously Abel and Glenda Levitt, who
live in Israel, go regularly to Plunge with other Plungianers and know much
about the shtetl and its families. They are a wonderful resource for
information. Have you contacted them about your family?

If somebody is interested in learning more about the Plunge itself, there
is much available on the town that can all be found either on-line or in
Israel. A few of these resources are as follows:

Haplogroups R1a and Q1b among Jews #dna

Pavel Bernshtam
 

Very interesting things were found when DNA of Ashkenazi and Sephardi
Jews, Cohens, Levites and Israelites were compared.

1. DNA pool of all those groups was diverse and contained different haplogroups
2. Composition of these groups is similar - more or less same
haplogroups, in similar proportions, although there are differences.
Except ...
3. DNA of the Ashkenazi Levites is fundamentally different >from all
other groups. Many Ashkenazi Levites have haplogroup R1a. R1a was very
rare among Sephardi people.

The natural assumption was that it was received >from Khazars.
Well, first of all always Ashkenazi DNA puzzles people explain as
Khazar ancestry :)
second, R1a is Indo-European haplogroup which observed, in particular,
in the eastern Slavs population.

Clearly, all Khazarian relation is just assumption, but there is no
better explanation.

In addition, 5% of Ashkenazi Jews belong to haplogroups Q - which is
common in Siberia and in north-eastern Asia (in particular Indians are
Q1a3).
Q haplogroup Jews belong to a rare subgroup Q1b, which was observed
also only in 2 tribes on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Q is
observed also among the Yemenite Jews, but it was Q1a.

Most recent common ancestor of Ashkenazi Jews Q1b, like for many
ashkenazi subclades in many haplogroups, lived about 1000 years ago.

My father in law, for example, is Q1b.

When I started the study of Q, I very soon discovered that the picture
is even more complex. Most Q1b are Ashkenazi Jews, but:
1. There are Jews >from Switzerland, who are also Q1b, but their common
ancestor with the most of Ashkenazi Jews lived 1500-2000 years ago
2. There are non-Jews with Q1b in Europe (very few), their common
ancestor with the Ashkenazi Jews Q1b 2000-2500 years ago.
3. There is a small amount of Q1b in Sephardi population, their common
ancestor with the Ashkenazi Jews Q1b 2000-3000 years ago.

Using the small amount of data, which we have, we can find a thousand
of ways to explain jewish Q1b:
1. Huns invading Europe in the early 1st millennium could be Q
2. Q1b may be old (ie before the time of exile) Jewish haplogroup
3. Again Khazars. In favor of this version we can say that Q1b is
about 5% of the Ashkenazi, but the common ancestor lived about 800-900
years ago. I.e. It will be hardly to explain by single person event
(marriage or rape). In years 1200-1300, when the Ashkenazi population
was about 25000, Q1b should be about 1000 people. It is easy to
propose that it was a group of close related people >from the top of
Khazar Kaganate. One researcher even argues that it was not just
Khazars, but royal Ashina dynasty.

Ashina came >from an area of Mongolia and northern China and were
Kagans in Khazars state. After the fall of Khazars state top layer of
Khazars people, who converted to judaism moved to the west. In the
area of Hungary, they met with the Ashkenazi. This researches argues
that some families are still preserved tradition of the Khazar
ancestors. The theory is good. 1000 years ago - the time of the fall
Kaganate (approximately). If Ashina come >from the east - they were Q.
Khazars themselves were more likely R1a (judging by the fact, where
they lived) and now it is understandable why the Ashkenazi Levites are
Q1b and R1a.

4. ... think abiut another 997 ideasby yourself :)

Certainly you should not think that apart >from Khazars, there is
nothing to write about Jews DNA genealogy.
Most of the Ashkenazi still belong to the J1, J2, E1b1 - Middle
Eastern / Mediterranean haplogroups.

Searching for a NY birth announcement #general

I am searching for a birth announcement which would confirm date of birth,
sibling and/or parents names for Samuel BARNETT who was born sometime around
1857 and 1865. One living relative believes he was born in Troy, NY but all
documents I have found indicate NYC. The Troy, NY Vital Records Dept stated
that NY State did not begin keeping records of births until 1881 so a birth
certificate would not be available. Are there any NY newspapers for which I
can go on-line to retrieve a birth announcement >from that time period,
preferably at no charge?

Guernsey WW2 - Palestine Regiment #general

Edwin Parks <edwin.parks@...>
 

Hello Everyone
Please allow me to introduce myself. I am a former British army officer
living in Guernsey. I am a writer and a military historian. In the past I
did a great deal of research into the fate of the Jewish population of
Guernsey during WW2 and in particular the three women who were deported from
Guernsey and finally murdered at Auschwitz. Their names were Terese Steiner,
Auguste Spitz and Marianne Grunfeld. I prepared their Pages of Testimony for
Vad Vashim and if I can help anyone perpetuate their memory I would be glad
to do so.
My primary field of interest at the moment is the military history of the
Middle East and I am here because I would like to discover more about Jewish
units in WW2 and in particular the Palestine Regiment.

Guernsey during WW2 and in particular the three women who were deported from
Guernsey and finally murdered at Auschwitz. Their names were Terese Steiner,
Auguste Spitz and Marianne Grunfeld. I prepared their Pages of Testimony for
Vad Vashim and if I can help anyone perpetuate their memory I would be glad
to do so.
My primary field of interest at the moment is the military history of the
Middle East and I am here because I would like to discover more about Jewish
units in WW2 and in particular the Palestine Regiment.
