Nazi Family Research Files #general

Lewis, Megan
 

Regarding Allan Karan's question about Nazi family research files,
they are at the National Archives in College Park as
"Rasse-und-Siedlungs-Hauptamt (RuSHA). Microfilm Publication A3343,
Series RS. 7,811 rolls)."

These files are for SS personal, but go back to 1800 for enlisted men
and 1750 for officers.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum does not have copies of
these records.

Icek Szaja KLAINER and the Joint #general

vangheluwe.smietan
 

Thanks to the generous genners, who helped me gather some more
information on Icek Isek Szaja KLAINER. (alternative spellings:
KLAJNER, KLEJNERT, etc...)

Here's all what I know about him:
He was born May 30, 1899 in the village of Ksiag Wielki, Miechow
district, Poland. He was the son of Nuta and Milka Minka Zalcman. He
was married before 1936 to Chaja Altman, marriage not recognized by
the civil authorities. He lived in Lodz, Drewnowska street 24 before
1936, Klonowa street 20 after 1936. He seem to have a brother named
Ignac, living Pilsudski Street 24 in Lodz...
After the war, he was a "displaced person". He lived Pandolfini street
27 in Florence, Italy. There, he received the help of the Joint and
obtained a transit visa by Brazil. Then he arrived in Argentina,
Buenos-Aires, where he remarried, with Laja Smietan. He died March 5,
1986 in Buenos Aires, where he was buried in the cemetery of La
Tablada. I searched in vain for his address in Buenos Aires, for
example in a possible Joint file, that I dont found in
http://search.archives.jdc.org/ . On this last point or others, I
still seeking help.

Many thanks

Place names in Yiddish (also Genealogical Standards: Names of Cities and Countries?) #general

My standard is to use the town/county name that is relevant to the date of
the birth/marriage/death event. Then in "Ancestral Town" notes, I add
coordinates, historical border changes and updated town/country name
information. For JewishGen Family Finder and other purposes, the standard is
the modern town/country name.

Other opinions are expressed in Gary Mokotoff's article (Avotaynu Fall 2008)

Generational accuracy of DNA-based racial estimates #usa

richard may
 

Dear cousins,

Some of my untested relatives think that we may have an Native American
admixture.
I've take the autosomal DNA tests offered by FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry.
None of the results indicate any Native American ancestry.
My question is would a 3rd great grandparent's or a 4th great grandparent's
race, e.g., Native American, be detected accurately by these tests?
How far back should accuracy be assumed?

Thank you for your kind erudite help!

Greetings...here in JewishGen land we are dedicated to making the
search easier by promoting better organization ( (want to find the
items quickly?) and research methodology (need to remember where you
got that piece of data?). Our classes are detailed on
www.jewishgen.org/education

Organize & Research Online (starting April 21st) is for advanced
beginners who have used Ancestry and other online databases and still
have questions or want to really organize information. It focuses on
your immigrant ancestors and their immediate families in the United
States. See the full description of the lessons etc on
http://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40046
Highlights: Lessons are read/downloaded at your own pace; this is a
one on one personal mentoring program where students post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work with the instructor
24/7

We also offer one of our Basic courses, Lets Get Organized in May.
This text based course with daily exercises is part of the Value-Added
Services program, and we waive the tuition for those who have
contributed $100 to our general fund within the last 12 months....And
we're planning a May Value Added Class for the new Belarus Website!

Notes: The sedar can be a wonderful opportunity to exchange
information and encourage family interest. Also, consider the 5 minute
videos on navigating JewishGen and its key databases on the bottom of
the education page (http://www.Jewishgen.org/education)

happy hunting!
