Hello GenSig
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
3 years. I consider myself to be beginner in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. I live in Kansas City, Missouri. My native language
is English. I consider myself Intermediate in using a computer.
My experience in using the Internet is intermediate.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my
grandparents - Homer MCNAIR was born on April 1, 1898, in Dallas, Iowa
USA, and Jerena Elizabeth KIRSCHER was born on December 28, 1896
(unknown location). My great grandparents - Frank S KIRSCHER, January
14, 1850, in Erie, Pennsylvania, USA, and Barbara SPATZ September 10,
1857, in Aurora, Illinois of my great great grandparents - Peter
KIRSCHER was born on November 1, 1814, in Burnhaupt, Haut-Rhin, France
and Carolina HERRMANN was born on January 24, 1821, in
Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany and of my great great great grandparents
Theobold KIRSCHER was born in 1779 possibly Alsace Germany and Lititia
(unknown last name) was born in 1793 at an unknown location.

Theobold and Peter KIRSCHER came to the USA via New York approximately 1827.

My primary research goals now are to find out: if they were Jewish. I
had heard hints that my mother's family were originally Jewish. My
great great grandfather Peter was reported to be Jewish.

I took the National Geographic Geno 2.0 Next Generation test. It
shows on the maternal side a K haplogroup. I have 3 of the 4 markers
associated with Ashkenazi Jews. My reference population shows 3%
Jewish >from the area of Germany and France.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 748759.

The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the
JewishGen Family Finder) are: BURNHAUPT >from Germany.

Need help finding possible GOLDSTEIN cousin in London...please #general

Rosalind
 

Dear Genners,

I am hoping someone in London knows Mrs Angela GOLDSTEIN. I would like to
make contact with her because I believe we are something like 3d(or 5th)
cousins.

To summarise the genealogical situation, my maternal Great Grandmother had a
few sibs, and I am researching the two brothers who have not been researched
much up until now.

One brother was Mr Baron Jacob COHEN who had about 10 children. One was
Pauline. Using a combination of genealogy websites and largely thanks to the
Jewish Chronicle I believe I have found Pauline married to a Phillips.
Angela is 3 generations later.

My primary interest is to go over my findings so she can confirm /not my
conclusions.

Of course I would be thrilled if my conclusions are correct and she would be
interested in "family/genealogy chatting".

If someone reading this knows Angela, who per Linked In is an instructor on
the Holocaust at the Imperial War Museum, please would they contact me, so I
can explain my findings fully. I also think that coincidentally she may know
some of my first cousins because I believe they all come >from the same part
of London.

Sincerely,
Dr Rosalind Romem
Rosalind@netvision.net.il

MODERATOR NOTE: Please provide contact information privately.

Re: Hebrew name for Munio? #general

Shelley Mitchell
 

In Polish/Latin, Munio means strength. In Hebrew, similar names could be Myron,
meaning My Messenger or Mordechai which means Warrior. Many of the male "M"
names reference G-d.
