Dear Genners,
In response to David Brener's post for a lookup NYC directories
& phonebooks of the 1930's:
--
You can obtain some great help, by using the site:

and you can unsubscribe at any time.

Then, post a message on: city-directories-l@rootsweb.com
and ask for the help you need - put the name of the city in cap's, at the
beginning of your subject line, and then outline the rest of the subject -
such as: "New York City - GOLDBERG - 1960's lookup request"

Make your subject heading clear & concise, to get more responses.
Put city, year/s you want & surname. Many people won't open messages
that don't state what people are looking for.
This is all run by private volunteers.

Budapest archives - accessing on-line #hungary

VICKI VIGIL <vvigil987@...>
 

Hi all

I was thrilled to read the July 20 post regarding the
Budapest Archives and the possibility of searching the
1900 city directory at
www.bparchiv.hu/cgi-bin/lakas/lakas.pl

But after going to the website and clicking on the UK
flag I could not find the city directory. I typed in
"city directory" with and without the year 1900; then
tried using the hungarian word - which was something
like "telefonoky" (sorry can't find my notes at the
moment), but still no luck.

Would someone kindly explain the finer details for me
as I'm anxious to try my surnames.

Many thanks

Trakai 1858 Revision List #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

For those researchers interested in Trakai records, do not expect to find
the 1858 Revision List because it does not exist and probably never did
exist. According to Tsarist law, 1858 was a period during which Jews were
not allowed to live in Trakai.

Researching the KREMENSTEIN (KREMENSZSTEJN) family #ukraine

Arnold Kremenstein <akremens@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am (trying to) research the family of my father, JOSEPH KREMENSTEIN and
set out below all the information that I have:

Per Birth Certificate:
Born January 1898 in ALEXANDRIA (ALEKSANDRIYA), VOLHYNIA oblast.
Father, HAIM-BER GIRARIEVICH KREMENSTEIN, petty bourgeois of KORETSK
NOVOGRADVOLYNSKIJ administrative unit.
Mother, HAJA(KHAYA) ARONOVNA LIBERZON.
Circumcision by Rabbi LEIB YUKELZON (UKELSON)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Gf was the manager of a sugar refinery in MIZOCH (MIZOCZ) and lived in
ROVNO(RIVNE).

Father, who was educated at the ODESSA GYMNASIUM(?), went to study and live
in FRANCE in the 1920s. He had an older sister, HELENA who was married to
JACOB GOLDBARG and they two sons, ARIK and .....?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Gf had a sister ESTER KREMENSTEIN born in ALEXANDRIA who married HUDEL
BALTZAN and they lived in KISHINEV, LAPUSNA BESSARABIA, ROMANIA. They died
in the KISHINEV GHETTO. They had three children, HAYIM, HANOCH(KHANOKH),
and EMIMA(spelling?). The children emigrated to ISRAEL before the war.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
I found out, by chance, about BERTHA LEIBISHEVNA KREMENSTEIN, a professor
at the GNEISSIN Music Academy, MOSCOW. Her son PAVEL LIBERMAN told me that:
She was born in 1923, father LEIBISH SCHMUL-ITSKOVITCH(LEV ISAAKOVITCH)
KREMENSTEIN lived all his life in KIEV and was a professor of mathematics.
Her gf, ISAAK(SCHMUL-ITSEK)KREMENSTEIN was born in KREMENSTS, married
AGNESSA DAVYDOVNA SPEKTOR and they went to live in STAROKONSTANTINOV in
KHMELNITSKYJ oblast. AGNESSA was shot at BABIJ YAR, KIEV, in September 1941.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
BERTHA K cannot see any connection between the KREMENSTEINs >from ROVNO
oblast and the others.

Thank you in advance for any information, advice, suugestions, etc., etc.,

Yours sincerely

I know that Chabadnikim sing the nigun. Perhaps Joyce can ask at the

Re: questioning the "cohen gene" #dna

Joan Hartman <joanhartman@...>
 

Thanks for responding. Just to clarify, currently, Jews are mostly found
in haplogroup J. As I understand it, a haplogroup is defined as a pattern
of Y chromosomes that shares a unique mutation(s) but varies in the number
of copies of short sequences of bases that are inherited together. As I
understand it (and I am no scientist), haplogroup J is differentiated >from
other haplogroups by one mutation ("M304") . Haplogroup J is in turn
divided into two sub-haplogroups, J1 and J2. Sub-haplogroup J1 is defined
by another mutation ("M267"). Subhaplogroup J2 is defined by yet a third
mutation ("M172") Apparently the current thinking is that J1 and J2
separated well over 10,000 years ago. What I am trying to understand is
how, >from a scientific and genetic perspective, the cohen modal haplotype
-- which is just a pattern of six defined regions of DNA containing a set
number of copies of short sequences of bases which are inherited together
-- could have independently developed among a tribe of proto-priests who
fall into two completely different sub-haplogroups, J1 and J2, each of
which is over 10,000 years old. Unless I completely misunderstand the
science, the odds of this happening seem very small. (And if the cohen
modal haplotype predates the J1/J2 split, wouldn't we find it more widely
distributed in the population?) Even if you were to assume that this
random pattern could have arisen at the same time, 3500 years ago, in two
such men among the group of proto-priests of which Aaron was a member, how
could we then explain the fact that a far greater percentage of the
population of a region of southern Anatolia (12%) has the cohen modal
haplotype than do Jews?
