Re: 24 July 1349- Black Death or Black Death Violence in Selingstadt? #germany

Samuel Sabel <sam_sbl@...>
 

Yes, that date was significant. The Jews of Frankfurt, and seemingly your
ancestors, were killed in a pogrom. Historians tends to say this was because
they were blamed for a Black Plague epidemic, though some have argued this
as the reason. The argument has also been made that opportunists unleashed
this violence to clear debt and acquire property. Regardless, a brutal
progrom occurred.

Mozeman and his son Joel of Selingstadt both died on 24 July 1349.
Does anyone know if there was a black death outbreak at that time and place,
or if there was an outbreak of black death violence.
Where might I find the answer to this curious issue?

announcing the Obermayer German Jewish History Awards for 2017 #general

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

The Obermayer Foundation, in cooperation with the President of the
Berlin House of Representatives, the Leo Baeck Institute, and GerSIG, is
pleased to announce the Call for Nominations for the 2017 Obermayer
German Jewish History Awards.

In recent decades, many individuals in Germany have raised awareness of
a once-vibrant Jewish history and culture in their communities through
educational programs exhibitions, restoration of synagogues and
cemeteries, installation of Holocaust memorials and Stolpersteine,
genealogical research, development of websites, publications, public
programs, and other activities. Many have assisted genealogists
extensively, and their publications and research are of great value to
us. They have forged meaningful relationships with former residents and
descendants of those who once lived in their towns. They are teachers
and engineers, publishers and judges, artists and bankers, lawyers and
business executives, and they come >from every region of the country.
These volunteers have devoted countless hours to such projects. The
Obermayer Awards recognize and encourage those who have been devoted to
such activities and bring international attention to their work. Five
awardees are honored each year.

The awards were established in 2000 by Dr. Arthur Obermayer, an American
Jewish businessman and visionary philanthropist who died in January
2016. Karen Franklin was recently appointed as the president of the
awards program.

While prior awards were limited to individuals, this year nominations
are also being accepted for organizations. Previously much of this type
of work was done by individuals, but many Jewish history initiatives
supported by organizations have sprung up in recent years. Awards to
organizations will be presented to a single representative of the
organization.

The call for nominations can be obtained at
http://www.obermayer.us/award/nominate.htm .
The deadline for submission is September 21, 2016.

ELIGIBILITY

Awards are presented to non-Jewish Germans living in Germany. Their
contributions are evaluated for public impact, educational relevance,
enduring value. The activities shall not have been done as part of
regular professional work, for monetary reward, or for fulfillment of an
academic requirement. The scope of work outlined in the profiles of
previous recipients may be used as a guideline; other significant
contributions are also welcome.

Many of you previously submitted nominations. Those nominees who were
not successful may be eligible for this year’s awards by submitting an
updated application. Instructions may be found on the Obermayer web site
http://www.obermayer.us/award/nominate.htm .

The award ceremony will take place in Berlin on January 23, 2017 at the
Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin Parliament. Travel and hotel
expenses for awardees and their spouses will be covered. Successful
nominators are also invited to attend all of the award ceremony events
in Berlin, where they will meet with the award recipients they have
chosen to honor.

Awardees will receive an honorarium to be used for the furtherance of
their work. The awards receive extensive press coverage in the awardees'
communities, throughout Germany and internationally (see
http://www.obermayer.us/award/news.htm).

If you would like to submit a nomination, additional information,
including the Call for Nominations and profiles of previous award
winners and the jury, can be obtained at:

Hi All,
I have already paid for H-SIG and Litvak-SIG lunches but now cannot
attend the conference. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in
purchasing them >from me at my cost of $44 each? I have one ticket for
each SIG lunch. I also have two, single day registrations for the same
days as the luncheons at $100 each.

Thank you.

They made their home in the Channel Islands so it's possible they married
there.

Mark retained his Jewishness, so it's extremely unlikely they married in a
church, even supposing it were possible.
I have read that, before civil registration, in areas where there
were very few Jews those that were there might marry in a church
or, more often, have their children baptised, just to have evidence of
the marriages and births.

Where I read this may (or may not) have been either "The Lost Jews of
Cornwall" or Susser, "The Jews of South-West England" - or somewhere
else. Or maybe my memory plays me false.

Re: spurious DNA match #dna

Followup on the "clearly impossible" identical twin: I should also
throw out the idea that this person is the contact for someone else
who actually took the Family Finder test, who is your long-lost twin.
Just to be thorough regarding the non-lab error possibilities.

Those kinds of shared numbers would indicate a parent/child
relationship with you, not siblingship. Or an identical twin, which
is clearly impossible. Otherwise, it looks like a lab error.

I recently found a very close autosomal DNA match with me on FamilyTreeDNA.
This person is a closer match to me than I am to my sister, and he is a
closer match to my sister than she is to me. We were born early 1940 in
San Francisco, California and he was born in Maine 45 years later. His
ancestry says 3% Jewish, 50% British, and 33% French/German; while my
sister and mine are reported as 95% Jewish (which is reasonable). My sister
and I share 2516 centimorgans (cM) while this man shares about 3384 cM and
similar with both me and my sister.
I assume such a close relationship can only if he and I share the
same parents--both parents. But we do not. Both my parents were dead when
he was born. This man is clear who his mother is. My sister and I look a
lot like our parents and not a lot like this man.
Is there explanation other than that the three of us share the same
parents?
