Re: Inferences from marker comparisons #dna

rayvenna@...
 

I think that as more people are tested, we're doing to see more results
like this. I have had 4 known and documented Splaver relatives (up to
4th cousins) Y-DNA tested. They vary by as much as 4 markers at the
Y-DNA 37 level.

I suspect that we're going to be greatly revising "what would be
expected" over the next few years.

For several reasons, I had two of my fourth cousins take Y-chromosome
tests at the 37-marker level. That is, the three of us are great-great-
grandsons of three brothers, Abraham BAER, David BAER, and Lazarus BAER
(me). It turns out that I differ by a genetic distance of 3 and 4 >from
the two them, and they differ by 3 >from each other, which is more than
what would be expected.

On all but one marker where we don't all agree, two of us agree and one
doesn't. E.g., on marker one, our values are 12, 13, and 12. Would it
be a safe bet that the value common between the two us that agree is
also the value which our mutual great-great-great-grandfather, Marx
Nathan BAER had? I would think that even if two us had mutations in the
same marker in the last five generations, it would not be the same
mutation.

The marker where we all differ is #35. The three of us have in
combination with #34 values of 34-35-37, 34-35, and 34-38. Can anything
be said of what the most likely value for our mutual ancestor was?

It would be interesting if I could find a male-line descendant of the
last brother, Kaufmann BAER, of my great-great-grandfather.

Louis SCHWARTZ, Hungary --> Manhattan #general

Joan
 

Hi,

Louis Schwartz, my great grandfather lived in Manhattan and passed away in
Manhattan after coming >from Hungary, I believe in around 1870 or so. The
only thing I really know about him is that he married twice, my
grandfather's mother was his second wife -- Rosie Weiss. I think I found
their marriage certificate -- says they married in 1885. By 1916 when my
grandfather enlisted in WWI, the city directory says his mother was a widow.
I have tried every database I can and can't find a death certificate or
burial place. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Re: Sing Sing Execution: "Death Certificate & Burial"-- more questions #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Marilyn Robinson asked about obtaining a death certificate for somebody
who was executed in Sing Sing prison in Ossining, N.Y., in 1918.

There's no law against the town clerk in Ossining giving somebody a copy
of a death certificate at that time. Death certificates in New York are
public documents after 50 years. However, I'm not sure if there's any
requirement for town clerks to make death certificates available, since
they are available >from the New York State Department of Health. (I'm a
little surprised that the clerk simply said no, perhaps there was a
specific reason. But thinking like a bureaucrat behind a desk, not a
genealogist, I can envision this happening.)

The details for getting a death certificate >from the New York State
Department of Health are at

https://www.health.ny.gov/vital_records/genealogy.htm

First read the "Ordering a genealogy copy" section, and then print the
form in the section below that. If you don't have a printer, you can
request the form by mail. The National Archives branch in New York City
does *not* have these death certificates - they have only the index,
which gives the name, date, certificate number, and town.

New Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

This week's excerpt is >from the book of Bendery in Moldova, titled
"Yehiel the Cobbler Teaches me Zionism." But the excerpt is not so
much about the politics of Zionism, but the yearning of an old man
for a better life. The writing is a poignant description of a town
character beloved by the children, and gives a feel for the life
of the shtetl at the time.

Zabeln / Sabile 1889 LVSA Holdings #latvia

Nancy Levin
 

Hi - According to the "Jewish Holdings in the Latvian State
Historical Archives [LSHA]" which is posted on the Latvia SIG web
page, the LSHA has an Zabeln / Sabile 1889 list of Jews who
"originated not >from Courland."

This list does not appear to be included in the LSHA Raduraski site.

Has anyone ever seen this list? If yes, can you please tell me what
information is included in this list besides names?

Thank you.
