Re: [DNA] Can I find out if my DN A says I'm Jewish ... #dna

Hi Annee--

Bennett Greenspan or one of his expert associates can correct me if I'm
wrong, but I don't believe there's a whole lot more that can be determined
from your DNA to answer your questions, unless you can find known or
suspected living relatives whose DNA can be compared to yours, and each
evaluated for its own characteristics. Perhaps someone else knows how
frequently the H haplogroup is found among people who identify themselves as
Jewish?

Your mtDNA can tell nothing of your paternal heritage, and on your mother's
side, it describes only one specific ancestor--the one in the all-female
line, who was determined to be >from the H haplogroup, out of many thousands
of female in your ancestral line. While it seems to have originated in the
Basque country beneath the Pyrenees in Spain, it has also been present in
Britain and Ireland for over 10,000 years. While it's intriguing to think
your remote mtDNA ancestor may account for your fair complexion and lighter
hair, it is far more likely that those characteristics came >from any of your
thousands of other ancestors, both male and female.

Re: Can I find out if my DN A says I'm Jewish from Israel or a Semite from As... #dna

If you are counting the positions for the letters which show up in red on the
chart >from Oxford Ancestors, you should add 16000 to the results to match the
way numbers are reported in the literature. I don't know if that makes any
difference in your interpretation, though.

Well, the mtDNA test I took and sent to London came back with a report that
my first maternal ancestor was a lady born in Basque country on the border

What does that mean? Am I Western European--French Spanish? Or Jewish?
I was told by a colleague at Stanford who spent a decade studying mtDNA,
that because I have mutations 189,362, and 356, it is likely that I come

Re: Yiddish pronunciation #general

Martin Green <btestware@...>
 

Mishigina/mishugina is an example of the difference
between Polish and Litvish, or Lithuanian Yiddish.
Similarly, gekimmen/gekummen. Zug/zog is an
example of the same thing...similarly, vus/vos
and dus/dos.

Another indicator, which you don't mention here,
is ey/ay. For example, Polish would be "kayn",
rhymes with "mine", and Litvish would be "keyn",
rhymes with "pain".

You might also note that as far as Yiddish pronunciation
is concerned, "Lithuania" extends quite a long way, including
all of White Russia.

Martin Green

My wifes uncle sent me a list of Yiddish expressions that he remembers
from his childhood in Londons East End. I am not an expert on
Yiddish dialect, nor do I speak more than a few words of Yiddish.
Would it be possible to pinpoint an area of ones origins
(in this case before London) based on pronunciation? I am
choosing a couple of words >from the list my uncle-in-law sent me.

mishigina (I would say mishugana)
zug yur (my uncle-in-law says this means say yes, I would pronounce say as
zag)

Iranian/Persian Jews #general

'Menna' Megan B. Kearns <siguiria@...>
 

I know >from historical facts and personal accounts the travelings of the
expelled Sephardic Jews in the Mediterranean and Near East areas. My
mother's side is Sephardic and has been in France, Gibraltar, England,
Italy, Turkey and Oran and Spanish Morocco before going to Latin America
and the US. However, my question is about my paternal Persian jewish
side. They were >from Tehran before moving to France in the
1950s. I am familiar with the distinction between the Mizrahim (which
would include Persian jews) and the Sephardim, who trace roots back to the
Iberian peninsula. My question lies in that. According to the family and
to friends of the family, my paternal grandmother's side was Sephardic,
even though she was also Iranian. It is also possible my paternal
grandfather had Sephardic ancestry too. There seems to be some
connection/contact with earlier Ottoman (Syrian/Lebanese)/Babylonian
(Iraqi) Jews and also with some time in India. The family was originally
merchants, though some my immediate family worked for the late shah and
his father regarding national education.
I am wondering, since I have seen little to nothing on the subject, if the
Sephardim made it and settled in Persian/Iran also, perhaps via the
Ottoman empire?
Thanks

It's the time of year when things here in the northeast start fading. The
grass begins losing the blush green color, the flowers in the garden are
wilting, our bathing suits and shorts are packed away and we start wearing
heavier clothes. But it is also time to wish you all a very healthy and
happy new year. LA SHONA TOVA.
