Jewish Genetic Genealogy with Israel Pickholtz in Los Angeles - JGSLA Tuesday, Aug. 25 at 7:30 #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

Curious about Jewish genetic genealogy and how to interpret your DNA test results?

Join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles at our next program:
Tuesday, August 25, 2015 at 7:30PM

American Jewish University Sperber Library 15600 Mulholland Dr. Los Angeles 90077
"Jewish Genetic Genealogy A Family Study" with Israel Pickholtz

Israel Pickholtz of Jerusalem will speak about his new book "Endogamy: One Family,
One People."European Jews have always married mainly within the tribe. Whether our
numbers five hundred years ago in Europe were four hundred or four hundred
thousand, the pool was limited. As a result, the members of the tribe today are all
related to one another, multiple times. This phenomenon, known as endogamy, makes
Jewish genetic genealogy very difficult, often impossible. There is a similar
phenomenon in some other population groups. The speaker was convinced that this
brick wall is not as impenetrable as it seems, at least in some circumstances. Mr
Pickholtz used his own family as an example, and was able to utilize DNA to clarify
multiple family relationships. He steps through how he did this in hopes that it
will encourage and inspire other researchers of their European Jewish families and
other endogamous populations to say "I can do this!"

Israel Pickholtz was born in Pittsburgh and has lived in Israel since 1973. His
personal research includes single-surname research in Galicia (formerly Austria,
now Ukraine) as well as his families >from Slovakia, Poland, Belarus, Hungary and
later in the US, UK and Israel. His flagship work is the Pikholz Project which
serves to identify and reconnect all Pikholz descendants.

There will be a book sale and signing after the program.

JGSLA members free. Guests $5.00. The JGSLA traveling library will be
open at 7PM. No reservations necessary.

Help with Details of an 1882 Romanian Marriage Certificate from Suceava #general

Graeme Boocock
 

Hello. I would like to ask if someone can help me in understanding the
fine details of the Romanian marriage record linked below:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=41874

The marriage certificate is for Markus ABRAMOWITZ (here rendered
Marcus AVRAMOVICI), 1858-1930; and Fanny SONNENFELD (here rendered
Fani), 1859-1938. The precise words used to describe the two families
are different, which leads me to believe that different information is
provided. Based on my limited understanding, I think it says the following.

Marcus Abvramovici born in Botosani (Romania) living in Iasi, son of (?) Avram
Avramovici and Sure born Falicenier 27 years [of age](?)

Fani (?) Feige Sonnenfeld born in Suceava, daughter of (?) Uscher and Sima
Sonnenfeld of Suceava 26 [years of age] (?)

My main question is about the Avramovici family. Where it reads "Sure nasc.
Falicenier", is that an indication that the mother, Sure, was *born* in Falticeni
the town, or that her *maiden name* was Falicenier? If the latter, is that the
correct spelling? It does not appear that the written name contains a "T" as in
the town of "Falticeni".

Whatever it says, I find it interesting that this information is provided only for
the Avramovici family, whereas for the Sonnenfleds we are only told that they are
"of Suceava". No additional details for the mother, Sima, are provided.

Also, where "Fani" is written, is the next word telling us that she is "also known
as" "Feige, or is this an indication that her original/birth name was Feige?

Thank you very much in advance,

Graeme Boocock
