Re: Ancestry DNA #dna

rayvenna@...
 

Adam,

You're correct, but as with everything else in science, accuracy will
increase with the number of data points. If your triangulation consists
of a number of known points, then you can give the results more weight.

For example, if I want to see if someone is related to me on my paternal
side or my maternal side, I'll compare them against at least 10 people
who share my paternal DNA but not my maternal side, then do the same for
my maternal size. If that person matches at least half of the people on
the paternal size and none on the maternal side, I'll feel confident
that the match is through my paternal side. I'll then repeat the
process against various paternal branches in an attempt to narrow things
down to a specific part of the paternal tree. It doesn't always work,
but I've had enough successes to continue using this method.

If a kit matches the several people on both the paternal and maternal
sides, then I know without a doubt that endogamy is at play. They're
related through both sides, probably considerably farther back than the
estimates predict.

This process can become insanely expensive, but I believe it works
fairly well (as does Lara Diamond and Israel Pickholtz). I've used it
with success to identify 3rd cousins, two of which have more
traditional genealogical evidence to corroborate the relationship. I'm
still looking for traditional sources to verify the 3rd.

Thanks,
Mindie Kaplan

In regards to Arlene's triangulation post, I would like to add that
triangulation is not always as clear as one would hope. I have a pair of
dna results that I often use as triangulation guideposts. One kit is my
aunt's and the other is her paternal first cousin. One would think that
anyone that matches my aunt but not her paternal first cousin would
clearly be related to my aunt on her on her maternal side. The problem
is that even a known maternal 2nd cousin of hers also matches her
paternal 1st cousin. When you add the fact that the amount of gene
sharing among cousins of equal genealogical distance can vary
considerably, one is left with often ambiguous results. The point is of
course that dna analysis triangulations involving potential relatives
who are greater than 4 steps away (i.e. further than 1st cousins), and
especially in highly endogamous populations, are difficult if not
impossible to interpret in the absence of additional and supporting
genealogical information. Beware of isolated triangulation!

Request for ViewMate Translation of German Death Record #general

Jay Paul
 

I've posted an 1896 death record of my great-great-grandmother,
Caroline Kahn (nee Gottlieb) in German for which I need a translation.
It is on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66054

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application. I
would appreciate as complete a translation as possible, as understanding
some of the handwriting may help me in deciphering some other death
records. I am interested in learning about who was the informant for
the death record, whether Caroline was a widow when she died or whether
her husband Herz outlived her, where Caroline was born, a confirmation
of her parents' names (Loeser and Sanne) as given on Ancestry (is her
mother's maiden name given?), and any other particulars that might be
extracted >from the record.

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
Jay Paul

Same or different Pickholtz #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

I'm trying to figure out if the below info is about the same person
or two different people. You will have to look at the info very
carefully, especially name and name spellings.

Israel PICKHOLTZ, born May 23, 1893, Birth Cert #18810 issued in NYC.
He was born at the Sloane Maternity Hospital, NYC. Father was (????
no name given) Pickholtz, mother was Lena Pickholtz. All this info
came off the birth cert that is readable.

Israel Pickholz, death cert # 20801 issued by the State of NY. The
death took place on June 4, 1893 at the Hebrew Sheltering Arms,
located at 210 Madison Ave (hard to read). Parents were Jokiel and
Maria Pickholz (hard to read names). It looks like he was buried at
the Bayside Cemetery (very hard to read). The Bayside cemetery has
told me they have no records of him.

Questions----------- If the same person, what are the parents names?
Where is Israel buried?
Does anyone out there have any info on this person
parent in either and/or the example?

The Bloch Sefer Torah #southafrica

Eli Rabinowitz
 

The recently completed roots trip to Cape Town >from Israel by Beverly
Saevitzon Jacobson and her children precipitated a search for the Sefer
Torah her great grandfather, Aphraim Bloch, donated to Highlands House
retirement home back in 1948.

The last time it was seen by a family member was by Beverly's
brother, Richard Shavei Tzion in 1998.

Read more about this success story, the research tools used and
documents found that helped locate the Sefer Torah, and bring the family
together to honour the memory of their ancestors.

This post includes current photos of the shul at Highlands House.
