Hi!

Y-12, Y-25, Y-37, Y-67 and Y-111 stand for Y, for Y DNA, and then the
number of markers tested. The higher the number of markers that are
tested, the more expensive the test is.

This notation will be used to show to what level/how many markers, a
person has tested. And it will also be used to show at what level
they are a match to others.

At the top of your Y DNA matches list in FTDNA, there is a dropdown
box where you choose the number of markers for which you want to view
your list of matches, but only up to the level that you tested - so if
you tested at the Y-67 level, you can only choose Y-12, Y-37 and Y-67.

When you have chosen the level/number of markers at which you want to
view your matches, you will see a list of people that match you at the
level you chose. In the list of each of the names of your Y DNA
matches, it will be reflected to what level the match tested - Y-12,
Y-37, Y-67, etc. If you have only tested to the Y-67 level and are
looking at your Y-67 matches, and you have a match that shows they
have tested at the Y-111 level, it means that they are a match to you
at the Y-67 level, they have tested 111 markers, and they may, or may
not, be a match to you at the Y-111 level.

Hi David, those are the number of markers that they test on the Y
chromosome. They test either 12,25,37, 67 or 111 locations (markers) and
count the number of repeats. The more markers that you test (they start
with 37 now) and the more that you match, the better the estimate of the
time of the common ancestor. FTDNA is the only company doing this test at
the current time.

Greetings, all. Could anyone explain what the meaning is of such terms such
as the following that are reported when receiving notification of matches:
Y-12, Y-25, Y-37.

Jerusalem born family that we are related to Rav Mordechai Yehuda Leib
ZAKS who was the Rav of Shaarei Chesed in Jerusalem.

My grandparents were Chaim Yitzchak and Rachel Leah (nee SCHECHTER)
ABRAMOWITZ.

As I have spoken in years past to members of Rav ZAKS' family I would
appreciate hearing >from someone who knows the exact connection.

TIA

Voting List Question #ukraine

enidrobin@...
 

Hi,

I have recently seen the 1906 Kremenets Conference of City Voters (Ukraine)
list of men who were eligible to vote. The document title states the list
was compiled according to Articles 33 and 34 of the Statute on Elections to
the State Duma. Does anyone know the rules in Articles 33 & 34 that
determined who had the right to vote?

The future of the FrenchSIG? #france

Rosanne Leeson
 

Dear FrenchSIG Members,

As the 2019 IAJGS Conference is approaching you may have noticed
that there seem to be no meetings, Share Fair,
or other specific references to FrenchSIG gatherings or other SIG
events listed for this year in Cleveland.
So, let us tell you exactly why.

Pierre Hahn and I began this SIG shortly after the IAJGS Conference in
Paris in the late 1990's.  It has been our pleasure, inspiration and
challenge for these many years since. We also have a close and warm
working connection with the Cercle de Genealogie Juive in Paris.
We now have a membership list of nearly 1000 members.

However, as time has passed Pierre and I have also added numbers to
our years.  He will soon be 91, and I, 90 years old.
We are still doing well, but our concern is for the future of the
FrenchSIG. We are still hanging in there, but we are not immortal!
It will take time for others to come aboard and to learn what is
involved with running this SIG, and moving forward with it.
Otherwise it will become defunct!

Therefore this is essentially a request for any of you who are
interested in learning the ropes, and eventually taking over this SIG,
to please contact us. Among the 1000 there must be at least one or two
who would like to take on this challenge. And there are Pierre and I,
as well as JG staff who will be able to teach and guide,to keep this
SIG alive!

Hoping for some eager volunteers!

Aline(de) Wolfsthal - BMD Information Help #germany

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group,
In researching the direct relatives of musician Prof. Joseph WOLFSTHAL
the name Aline (Alind) WOLFSTHAL came up few times.

In Joseph Wolfsthal's Berlin/Vienna Obituary (Neue Freie Press Feb 8
1931), Aline appears as his sister.

Alinde is also listed in some of Berlin's address books (e.g., 1929,
https://digital.zlb.de/viewer/resolver?urn=urn:nbn:de:kobv:109-1-3874240).
She is listed as a pianist, much in line with the family's traditional
occupation.

However, I was unable to find any additional information about
Aline/Alinde - birth, death, burial. Nothing.

Can you recommend, where should I look for this information about
Aline/Alinde (BMD or any other relevant info?)

Additional information that might be relevant:
The parents (Lazar/Laser Wolf(s)thal and Fanny Horowitz had a daughter
called Helena, listed in JRI - but she died in 1885
(http://agadd.home.net.pl/metrykalia/300/sygn.%201438/pages/PL_1_300_1438_0041.htm
