Come to Boston, help decide the future of our SIG. #latvia

Michael Eliastam <eliastamm@...>
 

The IAJGS (Jewish Genealogy Societies) is preparing an exciting meeting
in Boston on August 4,5,6,and 7 of 2013, and I encourage you to make
every effort to attend. This meeting has something for everyone >from
beginner to seasoned genealogist, and if you get bored, there are many
wonderful Boston attractions within walking or a short cab ride of the
Park Plaza Hotel. Or you can take a delightful weekend trip north,
south or west of Boston before or after the meeting!

The Latvia SIG will hold a meeting of its membership, and its 'board'
during the week; I have requested a lunch time session (not yet
approved) so that attendees with interests in all matters 'Latvian',
can meet each other, start conversations, and identify what is needed
for the Latvia SIG in the future.

I will not continue as 'leader' of the Latvia SIG after the Boston
Board meeting.

I took it on 18 months ago, hoping to reinvent the Latvia SIG, to find
new volunteers, to improve how it communicates with its members, and to
find new younger members. I have failed miserably, and despite a very
good Paris meeting of the Latvia SIG, I am probably leaving the SIG
worse off than it was when I took on the challenge. It needs new and
younger leadership.

We are faced with deciding two critical issues at the Boston Board
Meeting;
Should the Latvia SIG continue alone or merge with another SIG, or shut
down?
If it proceeds independently, what should be its mission?
If it proceeds independently, how does it find new volunteers to lead
it and support it?

Let me know if you are coming to Boston, and tell me your views. These
will help us prepare for the SIG meeting.

no match with my sister #dna

Arnold Chamove <ArnoldChamove@...>
 

Did my yDNA and mtDNA many years ago with FamilyTreeDNA.
Recently did my sister's mtDNA and her son's yDNA and mtDNA with the same
firm.
My sister's mtDNA and my mtDNA did not match but were two loci apart (so we
are likely second- or third-cousins, they estimate). However, her mtDNA and
her son's DNA did match exactly to oneanother, but not exactly to me.
We were both Caesarian, so pretty unlikely we are not >from the same mother,
and the paper records say we were too. Asked FamilyTreeDNA but they have
not replied.

Has the test changed over the years to account for this difference between
me and my sister?

Re: Assistance locating original surname for SHAW and ROSIN #poland

Assistance locating original surname for SHAW and ROSIN
Dear Mrs Karen Wyman

Can't help you with the name Shaw but it might come >from the town Shaveln.
Or it can be a shortening of the family name Warchawsky.

The name Rosin has several possibilities
Rosin could come >from the town Rossinoi (Rhuzana)
I have another idea. It has to do with Napoleon's visit in Lithuania. It
was well known that Napoleons wife Josephine loved roses and build one of
Europes biggest rosegardens.
There were suddently many quick minds that put two and two together and
became Rosengarten and Rosen and Rosenberg Rosenstein etc. Experts in
Roses or lovers of Roses! A name Napoleon would react to, when he needed
translators or suppliers for his army under his march. I am sure like any
other loving husband he would assure his wifes affection by bringing her
what she loved the most. After all being away for years could risk his
position if the wife was not loyal. If I was Napoleon I would send home
roses >from all the places I concured to my beloved Josephine! Perhaps he
thought so too??
Then there is another possibility Rosin or Rozin could be an abrivation
of Rozinsky.

The Scandinavian word for Raisin is Rosin. Rosine in German, in Yiddish,
pronounsed Raisinka (Little raisin). The name could have to do with
being a merchant of dry fruit. The old days candy! Raisin in Hebrew
is Tsemuk. Tsemakovitz was a well known family in Lithuania, Latvia and
Belarus.

Hope this helps
