BRCA2 Turchinovich #belarus

jessicahirshorn@...
 

Hello,
I inherited the BRCA2 gene mutation >from my father which makes me
high risk for a number of types of cancer (specifically breast and ovarian
among others) and am interested in trying to trace to origins of the gene
mutation in general and in my family. I can trace the mutation in my family
back to my Great Grandmother Sarah Turchinovich Rubin because she died
of breast cancer in her 40s back in the 1920s. I also know that Sarah
had immigrated to the US >from Pinsk and that her father's name was Sholom
Turchinovich but what I don't know is if her mutation came >from her father
or her mother's side and I don't know her mother's last name.
Recently a hereditary cancer support organization that I belong to called
FORCE started a database where people list their exact mutation and where
their ancestors came from. I noticed that a number of people with my mutation
BRCA2 - 6174delT said that their mutation came >from Belarus (or they said
Poland/ Russia) and that their ancestors were >from either Minsk or Pinsk
I emailed a number of the people with the same mutation and they are now
also trying to find out more about their families.Since it is a genetic
mutation or "marker" we know at some point in history we all had a common
on ancestor.
I would like to create a huge family tree that shows the interrelationships
and possible origins of the gene. Of course the problem is that I know very
little about my own family (on this side) and my genealogy skills aren't
as strong as they could be.Which is why I thought that posting to this
discussion board might lead me somewhere since the gene (at least in my
family) is coming >from the Jewish communities of Pinsk and Minsk.Does anyone
else in this group have the BRCA2 mutation in your family?
I would appreciate it if you could share any ideas that you might have or
additional resources that you know about.

Best,

Seeking information on Irving KLINGS, New York #general

Rose
 

Dear Group

I'm currently helping my sister-in-law in Melbourne, Australia, locate
information for her uncle Irving KLINGS. Irving was living in Brooklyn,
Kings, New York at the time he passed away in 1988. He was born in Bobrka,
Russia in 1913 and had lived in New York since his arrival in the States.
I've tried searching for his burial site to no avail so would appreciate any
suggestions.

Best Wishes

Looking for Irena SOKOTOUSKA Targowa 15/46 Warschau #general

Charles Mahler
 

Hello Everybody,
During the war Karol BÜSCHEL, born in Kolomeyya and an importer-exporter of
eggs in Lemberg was in Poland as he was mobilised as an officer in the
Polish army. His wife, Ella MAHLER, my aunt, was living with her two
children Liliane and Armand, in the house of my grand-parents MAHLER in
Antwerp Belgium. I recently discovered some correspondence between them from
1940 to July 1944. This letters were written and addressed to non Jewish
intermediaries: a Madeleine DURT in Antwerp and Irena SOKOTOUSKA living in
Warschau Targowa 15/46. Irena's mother's given name was Wlada.
Is there any possibility to discover some information about this brave woman
in Warschau?
Best regards
Charles Mahler

International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS),
member of Founding Committee of International Institute for Jewish
Genealogy, author and lecturer on Sephardic genealogy.
* Martha Lev-Zion, past member of the IAJGS Board of Directors,
founder and president of the Negev Genealogical Society and past
president of the Latvia SIG of JewishGen.
* Jean-Pierre Stroweis, past president of the Israel Genealogical
Society, member of the academic committee of the International
Institute for Jewish Genealogy, and co-chair of the 2004 IAJGS
conference held in Jerusalem.
* Daniel Horowitz, chief genealogist of MyHeritage.com and member
of the IAJGS Board of Directors.
* H. Daniel Wagner, co-chair of the 2004 IAJGS conference held in
Jerusalem, member of Academic Committee of International Institute
for Jewish Genealogy.

conferences, annual seminars of the Israel Genealogical Society
and their branch meetings. She will be responsible for developing
databases for the new society.

The center of the organization will be a website located at
http://www.genealogy.org.il. The website is presented in English,
but the home page provides the option to display the pages in French,
German, Hebrew, Italian, Polish, Russian Spanish and Yiddish. The
site will host videos, webinars, articles on genealogy, research
guides, and the calendar of events for the society. There are already
three research guides: Latin America by Daniel Horowitz, Poland by
Jean-Pierre Stroweis and United Kingdom by Rosemary Eshel. Guides for
Latvia, South Africa and Sephardic research will be available in the
near future.

Lectures are planned throughout Israel. The new society has already
given four lectures and three planned for the near future are noted

The website states the society is "dedicated to being completely open
to all groups within Israel and outside of Israel. We welcome everyone
interested in genealogy, no matter what country they were born in or
what language they speak."
