Dear JewishGen Community,

In the past year, JewishGen has been extremely active. We added a
unified search interface to access more than 26 million records,
implemented a host of new web features, entered into a multitude of
important partnerships (including Beit Hatfutsot, and the Miriam
Weiner/Routes to Roots Foundation), and added more than 1 million
records to our collection.

And this is just the beginning!

We are currently focused on significantly expanding our content
acquisition, unveiling a brand new website and search experience, new
web tools, new online classes, and much more!

As you can see, we are working as hard as we possibly can - but we
need your help to continue and to grow!
Please click the following link to make a contribution, and become a
true partner in JewishGen's important work today. A gift of any amount
will make a real difference.

PENNER? Family Mystery Link #lithuania

Ann Scher
 

I have been matched with a cousin on AncestryDNA. She knows very little
about the Jewish side of her family.

Her DNA matches several cousins >from my family, including descendants
of my great-grandfather and his two brothers (Harry, Sam, Albert
SCHER/SHARSHEVICH >from Lithuania). Therefore I assume that our shared
ancestry is through their parents (Shlioma and Sarah SHARSHEVICH)
and that she is a descendant of one of the brothers or their siblings.

Her Jewish grandfather is Elias PENNER, b 1906 in Vilnius. His father
might have been Yankel. He was married to Rose BELENKAYA >from Romania.
Their son was Shlomo PENNER, b 1947 in Lithuania. The family moved to
Israel then emigrated to the US around 1959. I don't recognize any of
these names.

I am posting this in case any of this is familiar to anyone. Does
anyone has any suggestions for how we could pursue this link between
the SHARSHEVICH and PENNER familes? Are there variants of PENNER that
I should look for?

Thank you,

Ann Scher

1921 Vilnius Foreign Passport #lithuania

Fred Millner <flmillner@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,
I have a technical question. Foreign Passports were issued to cousins
of mine (residents of Vilnius) in 1921. The archive is LCVA/53/6/635.
The information does not identify the authority who issued them. Were
these passports issued by Vilnius, Poland, or Lithuania? (Vilnius was
very briefly part of Lithuania in 1920 or so, and was not part of
Poland until a puppet congress voted to annex in 1922.) Just curious.

Thanks in advance!
