HEYMANSON-WALLACH family #general

ronald Wallace
 

I am searching for relatives of a Heymanson family. Descendants of Eduard
HEYMANSON and Recha (Rea) WALLACH. They both came >from Germany and were
actually cousins. They married in New York in 1903 and had two children,
Jeanette born in in NYC in 1907 and William in NYC in 1918.

I can find no trace of any of them after the 1925 New York State Census.

They have/had relatives that settled in the Chicago area, with current
generations still living there. I am fairly certain that I know who the
current generation are and would like to make contact if I can.

If anyone on Jewishgen or Gersig newsgroups has any knowledge of this
family, I would be most grateful to hear >from them to my personal e-mail.

Thanks

Do you know the address he lived at in the 1930s? Remember in New York
naturalization was possible at the Federal level or the State level so there
are a pile of different courts to check.

Eastern District was in Brooklyn and covered the eastern side of New York
City, Long Island. Unless he lived or worked in Brooklyn or Queens its
less likely that he would have gone across the river to naturalize but there is
a good index done by the NY JGS of Brooklyn.

Southern District was Manhattan and the other areas.

But if he lived in the Bronx for example he might have just as easily gone
to the local court house there.

Pretty much everything NARA New York has is in the online indexes. When
you go there the first ting send you to the online databases so you can do
your first check >from home.

I think the NYC NARA just reopened last Monday in its new location. I
assume they are up and running fully after the move.

I've been researching my genealogy for years, but have not yet

You need both, so you can compare them. If you already have Y-DNA
from another Budgor, you can compare your brother's results to that
instead.

What information, exactly, can I expect to get >from the Y-DNA test
my brother takes? Will it give names of relatives, or just numbers
of haplotypes, etc.?
Haplotype and markers. There is some relative matching at FTDNA but
I don't have experience with Y-DNA.

--Can I get even more information if my brother (and/or I) take the
FamilyFinder test instead? Would that be more info than if my brother
took the Y-DNA and I took the Mt-DNA test?
These are three completely different tests.

MtDNA is great but will tell you nothing about your Budgar family since
that's your dad's side. It traces maternal lines.

Y-DNA is necessary for tracing paternal lines.

FF is an autosomal test and gives you the best relative matching and
also ancestry admixture.

--Also, I understand that 23andme provides health info in addition to
genealogical information, but that their genealogical info is
considered inferior to Family Tree; can anyone explain why?
It's not true.

23andme, FTDNA, and Ancestry.com all use the same (very close) chip for
autosomal info, about 700k SNPs (locations). 23andme then adds on
another couple hundred thousand SNPs for health.

For your $99, 23andme will also give you a decent mtDNA test and a
basic Y-DNA (no markers, just SNPs). Of course only men get the Y-DNA.
This may be the best place to start with your brother and the potential
related Budgar. If the Y-DNA doesn't match and the Relative Finder
says no match, then save your money and don't get more tests for the
other Budgar. If there is a match, then you can move on to FTDNA.

FTDNA is the only place I believe that does the full mtDNA test (which
you don't need for these purposes). Their Y-DNA tests are also far
superior to 23andme's. But they are a separate test >from the Family
Finder so you can't use that fact when you compare Family Finder to
Relative Finder.

Both companies give excellent information and give you access to your
raw data. The inferior or superior part is about which test you get,
not about the company. They're both excellent companies. I'd say
23andme wins for autosomal, even if you don't care about the health
parts. Besides, paying $99 for a 23andme test then $89 to transfer
the 23andme results to FTDNA is cheaper than just buying the FTDNA
Family Finder test (though they have a sale now for $169 I think).
The reason to transfer is to be in both databases.

If you want good Y-DNA, FTDNA is the place to go. But if you know
you also want autosomal and aren't sure about the Y-DNA, I'd go for
23andme and see if you at least have a Y-DNA match. If you don't,
then don't bother with further testing (with the other Budgor). If
you do have a match, then you can't say you're related but it's a
sign that the FTDNA Y-DNA test would be worth doing.
