Need Yiddish/Hebrew/Hungarian transaltion #general

Phillip Schulz <pss.nyc46@...>
 

I have posted 4 more copies of handed-down family history originally
written on scraps of paper. The notes are mostly written in Yiddish
and Hebrew, but there are notations in Hungarian, as well. The family,
Moskovits/Moskovics/Moskowitz, came >from the Ungvar, Nasdad, Kosice
regions. The help I received on earlier postings was most appreciated
and I am extremely grateful for any help with the new ones. ViewMate

Immigrant Bank records? #general

Martha Forsyth
 

I have this dim, but firm memory of once having been able to see the
actual records >from one of the major Immigrant banks (Blitzstein,
etc.).  But now I can't find them.  Are they available somewhere to look
at the actual record?  (Were then, and did that ability get retracted?)

Thanks, Martha Forsyth

Re: Access to Romanian records #romania

Michael P Froman <fromanmp@...>
 

Falticeni is in Romania, not Moldova. It is about 20 km s of Suceava,
reachable by a bus that runs roughly every hour, and takes about 40 min.

My wife and I visited there in 2014, and found an old synagogue, closed up,
and one cemetery, walkable slightly south of town. It was fenced in and
reasonably clean. We were able to see it, by going through the old woman
caretaker's house. She has some cemetery records.

Following the announcement by the Romania Prime Minister concerning the
enactment of Las Guaranteeing Access to State Archives for Federation of
Jewish Communities of Romania.

Would access to the records include cemeteries and police reports into the
deaths of ancestors?

How would this apply if the towns now are within Moldova?
For example Falticeni?

especially long matching DNA segment #dna

Ellen Caplan
 

Can someone please explain if there is any significance to a DNA match
that is relatively small, but that has one very long matching segment.

I have one instance where the total amount of matching DNA is only 59.9
centiMorgans, but there is one shared segment of 45.5 cMs.
I have a 2nd instance where the total amount of matching DNA is only 85
centiMorgans, but there is one shared segment of 57.6 cMs.

Thank you.
