Rabbi Abraham Shmuel Goldberg HY"D #rabbinic

Sandra <geshem12@...>
 

It is with great sorrow that I must bring you the news that Rabbi Abraham
Shmuel Goldberg, whom many of you know, was brutally murdered this morning
by Palestinian terrorists while at the morning prayers in a Jerusalem
synagogue. Rabbi Goldberg was an expert in rabbinical genealogy, but was of
a very humble nature and would simply sign off to most of us as Abraham.
Rabbi Goldberg and I worked together for years researching the Lipkin family
and the yichus of Rabbi Yisrael Lipkin Salanter. I would search for public
records and send them to him by email, and he would do translations >from
rabbinical books. We had an enormous amount of email sharing and he
translated many rabbinical writings for me about my Ish-Horowitz Ticktin
Rittenberg family. He helped countless people searching for their "yichus"
because of his gemilut hasadim. I am sure many of you received help >from
him. My heart goes out to his wife, children and grandchildren. May they be
comforted among the mourners in Tzion.

Sephardic SIG #Sephardim JGSGB - Dutch and Sephardi SIG 30th November #sephardic

Gina Marks <ginagem@...>
 

A date for your diary
Dutch and Sephardi Special Interest Group Meeting
Sunday 30th November 2014
Council Room at 33 Seymour Place, London W1 >from 2.30 to 6.00 pm.

Speaker: Margery Cohen
"Genesis: An Indian Childhood -- a beginning and an ending."

This is a very interesting and unusual subject and even if this is
not your own particular field of research, please try to come along
and support us. Other areas of research can be very interesting in
their own right and having seen some of Margery's wonderful family
photos, we highly recommend this talk.

It takes the Programme Committee a lot of time and effort to
organize these events, so we look forward to seeing as many of you
there as possible to hear Margery's talk and of course to join in
the round-the-table discussion about everyone's research after the
talk and a refreshments break.

As always, non -members are very welcome to join us for a very
small contribution, so please pass on the details to anyone else
you think might be interested.

More information about the speaker:
Margery Cohen was born in Bombay (now Mumbai) to parents of
Baghdadian origin. She grew up among people of all faiths and
cultures, until she left India with her family in the mid '60s.
She trained as an accountant, and works for a small city-based
practice. Her passion is music, and she sang for many years as a
member of the Zemel Choir, and later, with the London Symphony
Chorus. Margery went back to Mumbai on a tour organised by Jewish
Renaissance, and was inspired to write an article for Jewish
Renaissance about her childhood and early memories. It was her
first trip back to her birthplace after 45 years. For the first
time since she lived there, she was able to visit her former
home, school and the graves of her grandparents. She will talk
to us about her family origins, her life growing up in India,
and the end of that thriving community. Her talk is entitled
"Genesis: An Indian Childhood -- a beginning and an ending." This
is her personal story about what it was like living in India in
the twilight years of the Raj.
She will be happy to answer questions at the end of her presentation.

Please RSVP Gina Marks if you intend joining us -
ginagem@... - for security purposes and so that we can
supply adequate refreshments!

DNA Cousins,

Ithak Epstein wrote that he was 100% all Ashkenazic Diaspora and wanted more
data.
First my personal "My origins" has changed >from 100% Middle Eastern Jewish
(prior to My Origins), to 92% Ashkenazi Diaspora, 5% European (mostly
Eastern European) and 2% Middle Eastern (where the map indicates Israel,
Egypt and Jordan). None of these rounded up so my total is 99%. My
cousins have different combinations of these (and one with some East Asian).
But if you upload your raw data to GEDMATCH.com there are a number of
admixture utilities that will show other (older) origins.

Re: FTDNA's MyOrigins Ashkenazi Category #dna

It would be way too much of a jumble to try to sort out specifics
of Ashkenaic ancestry at that distance.

It is pretty safe to say that anyone who claims to be able to do
this will end up providing much false information. (Not that there
isn't a market for false information...)

Israel Pickholtz

blogging weekly at http://allmyforeparents.blogspot.com

Under "MyOrigins" I am identified by FTDNA as "100% Ashkenazi
Diaspora". I am not surprised, but I want more. I want to know to
what extent my (and my matches') Ashkenazi atDNA indicates SE
European, or NE European, or W European ancestry. >from previous
investigations using GedMatch I had discerned such patterns, but my
methodology was crude.

I doubt whether FTDNA would tackle such a task soon. However, some
"citizen scientists" might want to do this. The main impediment is
FTDNA's legitimate need to keep certain company information
confidential. The methodology described in
https://www.familytreedna.com/learn/family-finder-pages/myorigins-meth
odology/ is appropriate for deep genetic research. I, however, as a
genealogist, am interested in fuzzier sub-populations that have
emerged within the Ashkenazi population in the past five centuries.

Russian Army records - 1878/9 - available somewhere? #general

wilsonettess@...
 

Advice please.

A friend has her grandfather's Russian Army book (he was born in
1876 in Leczna then considered Russia now Poland) - whereby it
states that her grandfather served in the Russian Army 14th Battery
Reg. 1897-1898.

Is there any possibility that paperwork exists somewhere that would
show exactly his army record at that time?

Please contact me privately with any information.

Thank you.

Re: Granted guardianship of her own child? #general

Michael Gordy wrote:
"If this is her son Sol, why would she need to be granted guardianship?
Wouldn't a widowed mother automatically have that status?"

"Marlene Bishow" <mlbishow@...> responded:
"Whether this is true in general is unclear, but in my personal
experience and research, in New York State, when a parent died and the
child has financial assets, the surviving parent may be named as
guardian of the child and those assets."

I wonder how common and widespread this is - my great-grandmother living
in what was Galicia and then Poland, was, in 1920, also named as
guardian of her minor children after the death of her husband.

Re: Granted guardianship of her own child? #general

Michael Gordy
 

Thanks to the many who replied with suggestions, both privately and on
the list! The consensus seems to be that (a) naming of a parent as
legal guardian was not unusual in matters of inheritance; (b) that I
can get probate and guardianship records >from the Sullivan County
court to learn more; and (c) that "Sallie" in that era was indeed a
diminutive of Solomon.
