Regarding DNA Matches #dna

David Goldman
 

Hello, everybody. Regarding the common occurrence of DNA matches on websites
such as Geni ("You've got matches!"), I have personally given up on trying
to identify these so-called matches that are usually called third or fourth
cousins. However, since many of them have trees, I have noticed a pattern in
those matches - whereby regions are consistently identified, which gives me
some idea of where my families must have migrated >from before their last
place of residence in Ukraine or Belarus. These are usually areas of Poland
and Lithuania. Therefore, I can assume that long ago, in the 18th century or
earlier my ancestors had lived in those areas.
A second issue is that shared matches frequently bring up the very same
people as a third match to the newly discovered match. This tells me that
the third individual whose name appears often is more definitely a relative
whose ancestry and my own are shared probably not that far back, i.e. early
in the 19th century or in the 18th century by virtue of a marriage of some
sister of an ancestor to me or vice versa.
Just my two cents.

Dear Genners,

I'm trying to locate other individuals who could've been related to my great grandfather, Lejzer Yudin. He was the son of Berko, listed on the 1907 Kiev Gubernia Duma Voters List, and resided in Demievka in the Kiev district.

JGS of Maryland June 23 program #general

Susan Steeble
 

Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland
Speakers: Anita and Jeff Knisbacher
Title: "Jewish Soldiers in Blue and Gray"
Date and Time: Sunday, June 23, 2019, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd,
Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, June 23, 2019, to hear Anita and Jeff
Knisbacher present "Jewish Soldiers in Blue and Gray." The
presentation includes a film, followed by a discussion of social and
genealogical aspects.

It is not well known that some 10,000 Jewish soldiers fought in the
Civil War, about 7,000 for the North and 3,000 for the South. This
film discusses the different allegiances of these soldiers, some as
slave owners, others as ardent abolitionists, occasionally >from the
same family. Special attention is paid to the case of Grant's
egregious "Order No. 11" expelling Jews >from several states, as well
as to the case of Judah Benjamin, sometimes referred to as the brains
behind the Confederacy. Also covered are two well-known Jewish spies,
one for the Union and one for the Confederacy.

Anita Knisbacher has advanced degrees in instructional technology and
has been a platform instructor both here and in South America since
her teens. Since retirement, she has continued to facilitate learning
via educational positions with the National Council of Jewish Women in
Sarasota, FL, and here in Baltimore with the Beth Tfiloh Sisterhood,
where she conducts regular "Shmooze and Learn" programs among other
activities. She will lead a discussion after the film.

Jeff Knisbacher is a former professor of linguistics, translator, and
government analyst. Since retirement, he has leveraged his languages
to research his family roots in both branches of his family: the
paternal in Galicia and the maternal in Ukraine. He will conclude the
presentation with a brief discussion of the genealogical aspects.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to JGSMD membership fee) after their first meeting. Please check our
web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location,
and program of future meetings.

JewishGen Future Scholars Fellows - Day 7 Recap #poland #lodz

Nancy Siegel
 

Report >from Poland - Day 7:

Today, the JewishGen Future Scholar Fellows spent their second day
cleaning up the Krzepice, Poland Jewish Cemetery. After a 7:45 AM
breakfast, they made their way to the cemetery, where they were joined
by a different group >from the local non-Jewish high school, who came
to help in the clean-up process.

As part of the leadership training opportunities provided by
JewishGen, the Fellows gave an introduction and orientation to the
high-school students. They explained the significance of our work,
proper decorum for a cemetery, and what the students might encounter
throughout the day.

Before officially getting started with the tasks at hand, JewishGen
Fellow Sophia Stepansky read the English translation of the
traditional Jewish blessing which is recited upon visiting a cemetery
for the first time in thirty days, and which describes our collective
belief in the eventual revival of the dead.

As brush was cleared, numerous Matzevot became visible, many of them
covered with dirt and or moss. After cleaning them with special
brushes, the JewishGen Fellows, led by Rivka Schiller, gave the
students a brief overview of some of the information contained on a
traditional Jewish tombstone.

In the morning, the Fellows heard >from a local historian, who
explained that Krzepice was extremely close to the German border in
1939, and became one of the first towns destroyed by the Nazis. When
the Nazis came into town, they immediately murdered dozens of people,
as many as 100, and took a tank and plowed through the cemetery. In
the afternoon, Steven D. Reece showed the Fellows what he believes are
three possible mass-grave sites within the cemetery.

After dinner, Avraham Groll gave an evening session to the Fellows
which focused on common obstacles that people encounter when
researching their Jewish roots, and how JewishGen can help. Avraham
explained that the Fellows are now ambassadors on behalf of JewishGen
and that we will be relying on them to help spread awareness of
JewishGen's important work to their peer and contemporaries.

Tomorrow, the JewishGen Fellows will be back at the cemetery for the
final day, this time joined by approximately 10 special needs adults.
In the afternoon, they will be visited by representatives >from the
Chief Rabbinate of Poland, which will explain some of the effort
undertaken to preserve Jewish cemeteries and sites of Mass Murder.
Before returning home for the evening, the JewishGen Fellows will also
visit the only remaining synagogue in Krzepice. While it is unsafe to
enter the building, it represents the last remnant of Jewish life in
Krzepice (aside >from the cemetery).

JewishGen Future Scholar Fellows - Day 6 Recap #lodz #poland

Nancy Siegel
 

Report >from Poland:

This morning, the JewishGen Future Scholar Fellows began the portion
of their program whereby they can physically take part in preserving
our Jewish history and heritage.

By 9:00 AM, the JewishGen Fellows were at the Krzepice, Poland Jewish
Cemetery. They were met at the cemetery by 9th graders (along with
their teacher and principal) >from the local non-Jewish high school,
who came to help with the clean-up.

After getting to know each other, Steven D. Reece and Przemek Panasiuk
gave a general orientation which described the nature of our work,
some differences between Jewish and Christian burial practices, and
some of the Halachik guidelines which pertain to visiting and working
in a Jewish cemetery.

Before officially getting started with the task at hand, JewishGen
Fellow Sophia Stepansky recited the traditional Jewish blessing
recited upon visiting a cemetery for the first time in thirty days,
and which describes our collective belief in the eventual revival of
the dead.

After that, the JewishGen Fellows went to work, often in partnership
with the students. The Fellows used a variety of tools, including
power tools, to clean the cemetery, and throughout the course of the
day, a number of Matzevot (tombstones) were discovered after cleaning
away brush.

During lunch, the Fellows discussed why this type of work was
meaningful, and also explored some of the history behind Jewish burial
practices.

In the evening, after a reflection exercise with Steven Reece, Dr. Dan
Oren led a fascinating session about how to decipher Matzevot. He gave
an overview of some common acronyms, abbreviations, phrases, and
images, which are generally found on a tombstone, along with some
specific examples of complicated epitaphs >from which much can be
learned about a person's life.

Tomorrow, the JewishGen Fellows will be back at the cemetery, again
with students >from the local non-Jewish high school. In addition, at
3PM (GMT+2), Dr. Dan Oren will be on Facebook Live (>from the Krzepice,
Poland Jewish Cemetery) with Avraham Groll to discuss the importance
of the JewishGen Fellowship Program, the history of the Jewish
cemetery here, and why there are so many cast-iron Matzevot in this
particular cemetery. In addition, there will be additional
opportunities to hear >from the JewishGen Fellows throughout the day.

JewishGen Future Scholars Fellows - Day 5 Recap #lodz #poland

Nancy Siegel
 

Report >from Poland:

Day five was a challenging yet meaningful day.

The JewishGen Fellows left Krakow early in the morning, to visit the
the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Pawel Sawicki led an
extremely emotional and informative tour, emphasizing the "psychology
of hope" employed by the Nazis, along with the dehumanization of the
inmates in the camps.

We then visited the Auschwitz Jewish Center, where the Fellows ate
lunch (thank you Tomek Kuncewicz for letting us utilize space in the
cafe), and toured the Oswiecim Synagogue and AJC Museum. >from there,
the Fellows took a two-hour bus ride to Krzepice.

After checking in to their hotel, a delicious dinner was served, and
Steven Reece led a reflection exercise about our collective experience
visiting Auschwitz, before giving an orientation about the importance
of the cemetery work the Fellows are about to engage in.

Beginning today, the JewishGen Fellows will spend each day through
Wednesday evening cleaning up the Krzeipce cemetery, which dates back
to 1749. The last known burial took place in 1946. There are believed
to be 650 Matzevot (tombstones), some of which are made out of
cast-iron.

On Monday and Tuesday, the JewishGen Fellows and The Matzevah
Foundation, Inc. will be joined by students >from the local non-Jewish
high school, who will come to help with the clean-up process.

Later this afternoon/evening, the JewishGen Fellows will also hear
from a representative of the Chief Rabbi of Poland with specific
regard to Halachik considerations and perspectives on maintaining
Jewish cemeteries, followed by a reflection exercise, and a session
from Dr. Dan Oren, who will discuss how to decipher Matzevot
(tombstones).
