names lists #ukraine

sempaiira@...
 

Does anyone know of lists of names of Jewish Ukraine residents from
the middle 1800's to the very early (1910) 1900's? My grandfather
came >from Kiev, but we aren't sure if it was specifically in the city
or >from surrounding areas. We don't know much about him and there is
no one left to ask questions of. His last name was Love and we
suspect that his real last name was shortened to Americanize it, or
Love was a translation of a Russian or Yiddish name that had
connections to the concept of love. A list of residents might help us
to find the name.

I have his census records, social security application, draft records
for WWI and WWII, information >from town directories, burial records
and death certificate. There is no information there to help. I
can't find anything in the Ellis Island records, his immigration and
naturalization documents or marriage certificate. Any ideas on other
places I should be looking?

Re: First experience with mtDNA test #dna

SVass <SVass@...>
 

from the FTDNA website:
HVR1+HVR2 matches are related within the past 28 generations with a
50% confidence interval.

FMS matches are related within the past 16 generations with a 90%
confidence interval if you took the mtFullSequence test. You can
upgrade >from the other.

So, yes the mutation rate is lower and there are fewer SNPs. Your
haplogroup would also be significant and can be determined completely
from the Full Sequence Test. I happen to have an Ashkenazi haplogroup
result with 8 Full Sequence exact matches and no paper trail to any of
them.

In Y-DNA specific markers have specific values and a match means the
markers agree in value. What does a match in mtDNA mean? To have so
many matches
seems to imply that mtDNA values do not mutate as frequently over
the generations as does Y-DNA. Is this true? Does this mean that mtDNA
matches
do not necessarily mean very close kinship? Gary Mokotoff

First, this question would be best posted to the Hungarian special interest group,
h-sig. <http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/sigs.htm>

There are online resources for finding places, such as the gazetteers at
bogardi.com, or the JewishGen Communities database. or the JewishGen Family Finder
can also help you to find others >from the same town, possibly with similar
interests. (You are not yet registered under either town name.)

Also, you can search the LDS (Mormon) Family History Library, by place name, at
<http://familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlc/>.

It's usually a good idea to include a bit more information, like the person's name,
and some indication of where you have already looked, so that people can help you
more easily.

FLORMAN family (NY and NJ) #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am looking for information on the family of Charles FLORMAN (born circa 1870) and
living in 1900 in New York City.

He married Gussie WERTHEIM circa 1895 in New York and they had children (Lillian
circa 1895); Gertrude (circa 1902); Rae (circa 1897); Beatrice (circa 1904);
Marvin (circa 1912) and Abraham (1906-1912)

Somewhere between 1900 and 1905 they moved >from New York to Jersey City, New
Jersey and then back to New York circa 1925.

Charles FLORMAN died September 2, 1948 and is buried in Saddleriver, New Jersey
and Gussie died in 1962 and is buried with her husband.

Lillian appears later as Lil Lane and died in Florida it appears in 2000.

Gertrude was married to LISSAUER
Rae was married to Emanuel COHON
Beatrice was married to SCHWARZSTEIN
Marvin was married to Selma and died October 1994 in Great Neck, NY
Abraham only lived 1906-1912 and is buried in New Jersey at the same cemetery as
his parents

I know that the FLORMAN's when they lived in New Jersey were across the street from
my BLUMBERG family on Central Avenue but what I am trying to figure out is if
there is a relationship between the FLORMAN family and my own, possibly via Jacob
and Israel JOSEPH.

Sorry for so much details but hoping some of this will ring a bell and someone will
see a connection to the FLORMAN family.

Thank you.
