(Canada) Royal Canadian Mounted Police Graves Database #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police Graves website has thousands of Mountie
graves, monuments and headstones. I have checked the website and found
"Jewish" sounding names included. Access to the website is free. The
website is located at: http://www.rcmpgraves.com/index.html. Searching the
database is easy: http://www.rcmpgraves.com/database/search.html. You can
search by name, range, history, by crime and punishment (murders, robberies
etc.) If you have relatives who served in the RCMP the website list of
links to other sites may be of assistance.

Thank you to Gail Dever and her blog , Genealogy la carte, for sharing the
information.

Looking for Stanley GINSBERG #general

Tsiporah Trom
 

Trying to locate Stanley GINSBEG or his descendants.

Stanley is a cousin of: Sonia GINSBERG, daughter of Salomon GINSBERG and Gassie
ARONKOFF, born possibly in 1908. Sonia married Louis Greenbaum in 1933.
In the 1940 Census, they were living on 237 Garfield Place, Brooklyn.

When Louis GREENBAUM died in 1985, Stanley was recorded as his next of kin
at Montefiore cemetery, NY.

Any help would be appreciated

GOLDIN, Dvinsk-->New York #latvia

drgoldin90@...
 

Hello fellow genners,

I am on a hunt for information about my husband's GOLDIN family >from
Dvinsk. >from Ancestry I have developed bits and pieces of Goldin
families. I have also reached out to posters on FTJP with family
from Dvinsk but so far no connections. My husband has been DNA
tested and results uploaded to FTDNA, MyHeritage and gedmatch >from
Ancestry.

This is what I know:
My husband's grandfather Samuel/Schmelke Goldin was born in Dvinsk in
1891 and came to NY in 1912. He was a baker/owner of the G and R
Bakery in the Bronx, NY until his death in 1945. His parents were
Pinchus Goldin and Chana Ruchel Fisher/Fischer who never came to the
US. He married Rose Katz.

If you have any ideas about where else I could look or information
that might help I would really appreciate hearing >from you.

Thanks!

Descendancy from the Mahara"l and/or Reb. Nachman (Breslev) #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I think I saw (years ago) in several sources that Reb. Nachman of
Breslev was a descendant of the Mahara"l, as am I.

I was also told many years ago, by a deceased uncle, that he was told
as a child, that we connected (somehow ) to Reb. Nachman.

My lineage to the Mahara"l goes up through a Yisrael (ben Yosef) of
Ostrow and up to (through a mother) to Reb. Naftali KATZ (the "Smichas
Chachomim"). One of his sons, (a Yosef) was married to the daughter of
the Admo"r of Lechowitz (Aharon and Perl,-daughter of the Admo"r of
Karlin)

Can anyone inform me the connection between KATZ and Reb. Nachman ?

TIA

Re: Ancestry DNA #dna

Arlene Beare
 

Thanks to Charles for such a helpful post.
I agree with what he has written but would like to add some help I get from
Triangulation.

I use a programme called Double Match Triangulation (DMT) which I really
find helps me a lot to separate maternal and paternal matches. You make a
Chromosome Browser Result csv file >from FTDNA and you match this against
the CBR file of someone you are matched with. These are files a and b and
will bring up matches as c. Your match will need to send you the file. Some
are very cooperative and others are not. One needs to explain they are not
sending any DNA data in the file only matches.

The way it works is if a matches b and they both match c and each other that
is a DMT. In order to find matches to my paternal grandmother on my father's
side I needed to get cousins to test who have this grandmother as their
maternal grandmother. I have managed to get 2 to test and using the results
of their MtDNA matches and the Autosomal compared with my autosomal and the
results of triangulation I get a good idea of which side the autosomal match
is from.

You can also upload raw data >from Ancestry or FTDNa or My heritage to
Gedmatch.com which gives another pool to search. You can pay 10dollars for a
month to use their Tier 1 utilities . You need only pay for the one month
and then whenever you need it you can take another month. They also have a
Triangulation tool but this is single match and not as useful as DMT. They
do have very useful tools but of course the pool of users is much smaller
than FTDNA or Ancestry.

The autosomal DNA test, be it with Ancestry, FTDNA, 23andMe or myHeritage,
is a great tool for genealogists to advance their research. Each company
will have their pros and cons. You can review them in the ISOGG Wiki website
(Autosomal DNA testing comparison chart).
But one must understand that without a solid and well researched family tree
the chances of a breakthrough are very slim, though there are exceptions to
the rule. The test will not return a magic list of matches that will close
gaps on one's family tree. One should expect to do hard work if s/he is
serious about using atDNA test to help the research. Sit back and wait for a
miracle match will not work on 99.9% of the cases.

Locating Bernard GRABOIS in Pantin Cemetery, Paris #france

bthayer@...
 

Hello French SIG,

I am researching my gggrandfather Bernard/Berel GRABOIS who died in
Paris in 1904. The Consistory of Paris has confirmed he was buried in
Pantin Cemetery on 3 June 1904. I have contacted the cemetery by email
to request the location of his grave, but their automatic reply states
that they do not reply to genealogical inquiries, unless you can prove
you are a descendant. Although I may be able to do that with
difficulty, is there some other way to look up the location of a
grave? This is the largest cemetery in all of France, a manual search
is likely impossible.

Secondly, I understand that if the financial upkeep of a grave in the
cemetery lapses, the cemetery can exhume the remains. I have no idea
what was the financial arrangement of my ancestor's grave, and most of
his family emigrated within two years of his death - how common is it
that the graves are in fact exhumed?

Thank you

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
France, Issue 133, Spring 2018, has just been published.

Known for the personalities who illustrated it in the 19th
century, the SEE family is less so for the previous century. This gap
was addressed by studying the two lineages >from Salomon SEE, who lived
in Wattwiller and Huningue (Alsace) in the late 17th and early 18th
centuries. One is that of Abraham See, an important lender, who was the
victim of a resounding lawsuit for usury in 1744 and whose son, Solomon,
was murdered two years later; the other is that of Hirtzel See, more
modest but less fertile in tragic destinies. >from sources often
unpublished, the article by Pierre-Andre Meyer traces the gradual
installation of this family in Bergheim (County of Ribeaupierre) >from
the beginning of the 18th century to the Revolution.

Imling is a small town located in the region of Sarrebourg
(department of Moselle) which had an important Jewish population in the
19th century. In 1845, the community rised to 120 persons in a total
population of 300. Like many other communities in the Lorraine area, it
vanished during the following century. The old synagogue is the only
remnant of that past. Some celebrities belong to the descendance of
those families who lived in Imling. Laurent Moyse has already found
1,700 descendents of Yehiel LEVY, mong which the aircraft industrialist
Marcel DASSAULT and his son Serge.

Subject: Senta (Zenta)
from elenasc@shaw.ca
Dear Abraham and Peter:

About ten years ago, I made a trip to Europe researching my ancestors. My
great grandmother Ernestine Steinfeld had family in Senta, and my
grandfather Herman Schacherl and all his siblings were born there.

I visited Senta and searched the municipal records as well as the archives
in Belgrade and Szeged. In all three places there were records of births
and deaths in Senta, but none included my relatives.

Senta's records consisted of a shoebox of hand-written notes. I was told
there that the Germans confiscated many Jewish civil records during the war.

Some of the more formal paper records I found in the Szeged archives had
been damaged and were now declared missing including the years I was
searching for. Here's the online link to the Szeged archives, but I'm not
sure anyone there
speaks English: csml@csml.hu. In person, they were very friendly, but I
could only communicate with one of the staff and her English was very
limited. Of course this may have changed.

The Belgrade archives were all electronic. After my return, I hired a
Serbian speaking researcher to check out the Novi Sad records, but again,
nothing was found. Of course, that doesn't mean your family's records aren't
there. I'm afraid I also
don't know if what these archives have is any different >from the LDS
records.

Peter, do you have a contact for the Zombor archives, and if so, do you know
if they are able to communicate in English and are willing to help with
research?

I can certainly recommend a visit to Senta. A lovely town with friendly,
helpful residents.

Best regards,

Elena Schacherl,
Calgary, Alberta

Weirdly enough I have been in Zombor/Sombor (the one in Serbia, not
Slovakia) where I used the archives (they were very friendly) and discovered
they also had information about Zenta, which is where some of my Podwinec
family lived. This is not logical, as one would expect that records would
be in Subotica, which is the local center or government, or in Novi Sad
which is the regional capital for the Vojvodina.

Novi Sad has a huge archive which is underfunded, so they don't know the
full extent of their holdings. But that too is worth a visit in the chance
that they hold records as well.

It would be delightful to discover that they have, hidden away, 1857 or 1867
Census sheets.

Don't know about LDS records, but Zombor is worth the visit. Picturesque,
lovely old town, not too horribly renovated or restored, or at least as of
2005 or so. Easy border crossing >from Baja in Hungary, if it hasn't been
closed by certain politicians.
