My suggestion is to search for Kurenets and Vilejka records in Minsk and

AncestryDNA and Calico to Research the Genetics of Human Lifespan #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Ancestry DNA and Calico Labs announced an effort to investigate human heredity
of lifespan. Together, they will evaluate anonymized data >from public family
trees on Ancestry and Ancestry's database of over one million genetic samples.
The two companies working together will analyze and investigate the role of
genetics and its influences in families experiencing unusual longevity. They
will use Ancestry's proprietary databases, tools and algorithms. Calico will
then focus its efforts to develop and commercialize any potential therapeutics
that emerge >from the analysis.

For those not familiar with Calico, according to a 2013 Google press release,
it is an independent research and development biotech company established in
2013 by Google Inc. and Arthur D. Levinson (a founding investor) with the goal
of combating aging and associated diseases. The name Calico is shorthand for
California Life Company,

Pientkiewicz #galicia

Glazer Family
 

On July 19, 2015, I sent a posting to Gesher Galicia asking if anyone
had ever heard of a town called Pientkiewicz, located somewhere
near Mielec, Rzeszow and Dabrowa Tarnowska. My BRANDFELD family
was >from there and I was having trouble finding any references to it.

Within hours of my posting, I received responses >from the following:
Renee Steinig, Pamela Weisberger, Alex Feller, David Belgray, Yehuda
Ben Shlomo, Jurek Hirschberg, Steve, Suzan Wynne, Jay Osborn and
Mark Halpern. The overwhelming consensus seems to be that there
is a tiny town just outside of Mielec called Piatkowiec (or Piatkowice).

This certainly seems like the place, and, thanks to all of you, my
Israeli cousin who is touring Poland next week has already contacted
her tour guide who is arranging for a personal visit to this spot once
her group gets to Krakow.

My sincere thanks to all of you, and, blee neder, I will be forwarding
a donation to Gesher Galicia as soon as possible.

(US-MASS) Legislation to Update Massachusetts Public Records Access Law #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Three bills have been introduced in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Legislature seeking to update their outdated public records access law. The
three bills are:

H 3665 (which appears >from the legislative website to be the bill that is
the new draft of the other two bills and will be one heard in the House Ways
and Means Committee mentioned in the Boston Globe editorial below:
https://malegislature.gov/Bills/BillHtml/150264?generalCourtId=12 ); H 2772 (
mentioned in the ACLU link below and S 1676.

The July 22, 2016 editorial in the Boston Globe spells out the issues
-giving the public records access law some "teeth" by capping some of the
fees for public records, and making it easier for requestors to obtain
information electronically and other ease of administration. See:

Speaking to the Ways and Means staff, they do not have as of this posting
have a date for a hearing before the Ways and Means Committee.

I am not surprised that some of Gesher Galicia's best and brightest --
board members, founder, cartography specialist, advisory member, etc.
-- pitched in with suggestions within minutes. Crowd-sourcing
genealogical questions (and that's really what posting to the
discussions groups is) is the hands-down best way to get answers
and leads with town identification, brick wall questions, and so much
more. List subscribers have experts at the ready, willing to give of
their time and expertise. Why? It's not just that the Jewish
genealogical community is made up of generous, interested
researchers. It's also fun solving mysteries, and who can argue with
performing the mitzvah of helping others find their roots and
discover family?

Just yesterday I was rereading the very first issue of "The Galitzianer"
where, in the fall of 1993, Suzan Wynne wrote:

"Well, we have done it at last! With this issue of "The Galitzianer" the
Special Interest Group (SIG) is officially launched. As of the end of
September, we have an international membership of over 100 people.
(snip) The more we grow, the better our collective chances for
connecting with good information."

Wow... well... we've definitely grown beyond that intrepid 100... and
sharing our collective wisdom will help all of us make progress in the
coming years. Sometimes we don't know what we don't know. This
list (and membership in the Gesher Galicia SIG) can help all of us.

Fourteen years ago I also posted a town identification question: "What
place is Shalat?" I asked. (I found the town name on my grandfather's
marriage license.) Within minutes, just like Steven, I had the answer
from several replies: "Skalat" near Tarnopol. I was off... and haven't
stopped since. Good luck with yours, Stephen!
