The 1890 Manhattan "Police Census" was microfilmed by the LDS
at the New York Municipal Archives in 1981, on 59 microfilms,
which can be borrowed at any local LDS Family History Center.

The "Police Census" lists only the name, sex, and age of each
person. Also included are the street name and number, the
patrolman/enumerator, and police precinct.

To use the census, first find the name of the head of the
household in a City Directory, then use the street directory
and maps (on FHL microfilms 1304784 and 1304777) to determine
the assembly district and enumeration district (A.D. / E.D.).
The microfilm number of each A.D. / E.D. is listed in the
Family History Library Catalog (FHLC) under the heading
"NEW YORK, NEW YORK - CENSUS - 1890". For a summary,

Subj: DNA Discussion Group, A new mailing list forum.
Date: 5/15/00 10:30:44 PM Central Daylight Time
From: susan.king@jewishgen.org (Susan E. King)
To better assist all those JewishGen'rs interested in pursuing further
discussion on the topic of DNA, we have set up a mailing list
explicitly for this purpose.
The DNA discussion group is designed, first and foremost, to heighten
interest in genealogy and to highlight the use of DNA as a special
tool in genealogical pursuits.
Scientific questions that go to the core of the technology, and
especially its reliability are welcomed. Your questions should
encompass all
areas relating to the when and how to best utilize DNA testing for
your
personal genealogical pursuits, specifically the use of Y chromosome
testing,
which is an emerging technology, versus MtDNA testing as it relates to
its
accuracy and Most Recent Common Ancestor predictability.
The discussion group will also utilize members of our partner FTDNA's
scientific board. Questions will be referred through Mr. Bennett
Greenspan,
President and David Rothschild, M.D., Vice President..
The FTDNA scientific board includes Michael Hammer, Ph.D., University
of Arizona and Co-author on numerous genetic papers including those on
the Cohanim gene, Max Rothschild, Ph.D. professor at Iowa State
University, geneticist, and Dr. Bruce Walsh, University of Arizona,
population geneticist. These scientists will be consulted or will
answer
questions directly in order to provide more specific scientific and
statistical
data as needed.
We look forward to an engaging discussion that will focus on the needs
of your personal genealogical research.

personal #latvia

joebein365@...
 

Just a personal note that might be of slight interest to you.

2 years ago while getting some medical tests a doctor introduced himself as
Marshall Bein, and asked if perhaps we are related. Conversation developed
the fact that his father and my father were both born in Mogilev Pojarsky.

His father had died, and so had mine. We could find no clue that would tell
us whether we are related.

Your e-mail on DNA test struck me that with this test Marshall and I could
find out the answer. We have ordered, and are waiting for the test package to
arrive so that we can get an answer to our question.

Thank you for the information that will lead us to an answer to our curiosity.
