Searching: WYLOGE/GOLDBERG/TAUB descendents #poland

Stephanie Shushan <spshushan@...>
 

I'm searching for relatives of Khana WYLOGE, daughter of Nusen WYLOGE
from Bedzin and Jedrezjow Poland. Nusen is my 2nd great grandfather
and all of his family, including my great grandfather Hyman,
immigrated to the U.S. prior to 1923. Khana and her family were the
remaining family in Poland.

I recently found memorials on Yad Vashem for Khana GOLDBERG nee
WYLOGE, her husband Avraham and their two daughters who did not
survive the Holocaust. The posts were submitted by Liber TAUB,
son-in-law of Khana. Mr. Taub also posted this story in the Yizkor
book https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/lost_youth/lost_youth.html
with photos of the family >from Yad Vashem. A connection to this
family would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Re: Testing #dna

charles goldenzon
 

Errol,

For YDNA, if you tested your father, there is no need to test yourself.
If by highest level you mean 111 markers, fine. Otherwise, if you tested
for 37 or 67 markers you can still upgrade his test to 111 markers. This
will serve to narrow down his match list and put a "most recent common
ancestor" within fewer generations.

For mtDNA, if you tested your mother, sibling or maternal uncle/aunt,
there is no need to test yourself. As your mtDNA was passed down by your
mother, if you want to investigate your father's maternal line, you can
test or upgrade your father's sample for mtDNA. The highest level here
is the mtFull Sequence.

As for atDNA, if you tested both your parents there is no need to test
yourself.

Regards,

Testing #dna

Errol Schneegurt
 

I did DNA testing for most of my family but never did my own. Since I
did my father and mother to the highest level including the "Y"
chromosome. Is it necessary that I do the same.
I am a male.

Channel Islands cemeteries now on JOWBR #general

Sue Levy
 

Earlier this year we visited the Channel Islands and I photographed all the
Jewish graves in three cemeteries in St Helier, Jersey. With the tremendous
help of an archivist at the Societe Jersiaise, a lady who is Jersey's Jewish
historian, and the State Record Office I compiled the spreadsheets and sent
these additions to JewishGen for the JOWBR database.

To find the listings, search for Saint Helier under Town in the search
screen. The cemeteries are Westmount (historic and recent), Almorah
(historic) and Tower Road New Cemetery (current).

There is also a listing for Alderney, one of the smaller islands - this
appears to be in the form of a memorial plaque for lives lost during the
War, in the 1940s.

A message for all genealogists who visit Jewish cemeteries, especially small
ones: if you have time, please do check if JOWBR has those cemeteries yet,
and if not, do photograph what you can, and go on JewishGen to get the
instructions for submitting the photos plus any data you can decipher. It's
time consuming but not hard, and I'm happy to help. Also there are plenty of
online sources as well as local historical societies and museum archives to
help you find information about the deceased and fill in the gaps between
your photos.

Happy Chanukah to all!
