Haplogroup V #dna

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

So far all I know >from having my mt DNA tested several years ago by
Family DNA is that I belong to Haplogroup V, dubbed the "Clan of
Velda," which according to some of the literature means that my
matrilineal ancestor was descended >from the smallest of the clans of
the seven daughters of Eve. That to (skeptical) me, sounds like
science fantasy! I'd like to know how that was determined.

According to the migrations map (as well as the accompanying
literature) I received >from Family DNA my direct maternal line is
found mainly in Spain and Finland, >from which I've inferred, maybe
erroneously, that at some point they encountered a Jewish tribe and
"converted" to Judaism (unless - going even further back in time,
Haplogroup V comprised or was descended >from one of the lost tribes
and so originated in what was once known as Palestine. According to
the Haplogroup V web site "Velda" lived about 16-17,000 years ago in
northeastern Spain. Reflecting on the physical appearance of my
maternal ancestors (recent generations, that is) I like to think
that they were Sephardim.

I'd be interested in hearing >from other Haplogroup V members what
they have learned about their genetic family history.

I would like to add that although I've contacted lots of individuals
who are HVR11 (high resolution matches) so I've not found any who are,
so say, third or fourth generation removed, which has been a big
disappointment.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2012 #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Once again, during the last month, the Yizkor Book Project grew in all sorts
of directions. This growth includes the completion of the "The Martyrdom and
Extermination of the Jews in Kielce During World War II" project and the
addition of the whole of the Hebrew section >from the Vishnevets, Ukraine
Yizkor Book, plus substantial additions to many of our other projects
currently in progress.

You will see that a number of new books >from the Bessarabian region have
been added and we are now looking for people to take on the coordination of
these important projects. In general, if you would like to become involved
in these or any of our other projects, I would definitely like to hear from
you. No defined time commitments required - you are the one to generously
volunteer some of your free time and you can decide how much time you are
able to devote to these endeavors.

Once again, this past month, a number of necrologies have been placed online
from a wide range of communities - >from Estonia, Satu Mare, Romania, Mlyniv,
Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in
knowing more about the project, what books are available and where they may
be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this

Yizkor Book Project, April 2012 #dna

Shalom,

Once again, during the last month, the Yizkor Book Project grew in all sorts
of directions. This growth includes the completion of the "The Martyrdom and
Extermination of the Jews in Kielce During World War II" project and the
addition of the whole of the Hebrew section >from the Vishnevets, Ukraine
Yizkor Book, plus substantial additions to many of our other projects
currently in progress.

You will see that a number of new books >from the Bessarabian region have
been added and we are now looking for people to take on the coordination of
these important projects. In general, if you would like to become involved
in these or any of our other projects, I would definitely like to hear from
you. No defined time commitments required - you are the one to generously
volunteer some of your free time and you can decide how much time you are
able to devote to these endeavors.

Once again, this past month, a number of necrologies have been placed online
from a wide range of communities - >from Estonia, Satu Mare, Romania, Mlyniv,
Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in

be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this

Join as many projects as possible #dna

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

Since most Ashkenazi Jews did not have surnames until several hundred
years, we should joined as many projects as possible at Family Tree DNA.
There is no limit to the number you can joined. I am in nine projects.
The reason for this is you would received more matches, mostly from
persons that are 1 off on 12 markers >from you. In my project, one member
after joining discovered that his father was already tested and was one
off. (This happen once in about 45 times with the 12 markers Y-DNA
test.)

After joining your surname project and your geographical projects, you
should join is the "Jewish Heritage Project" for all Jews. Then if you
have a family history of being a Kohanim, then join the "Cohen" project
from the surname list. Then joined your haplogroup project(s). For
Jewish ones, some are hard to find. The "Jewish E", "Jewish R1b", and
"Jewish Q" are under the J in the Y haplogroup projects list. However
someone that is J2a4 can find their project under WIRTH in the surname
list. For myself, I joined the projects for "J", "J2", "J2b" and my own
project "J2b_455-8".

Yizkor Book Project, April 2012 #rabbinic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Once again, during the last month, the Yizkor Book Project grew in all sorts
of directions. This growth includes the completion of the "The Martyrdom and
Extermination of the Jews in Kielce During World War II" project and the
addition of the whole of the Hebrew section >from the Vishnevets, Ukraine
Yizkor Book, plus substantial additions to many of our other projects
currently in progress.

You will see that a number of new books >from the Bessarabian region have
been added and we are now looking for people to take on the coordination of
these important projects. In general, if you would like to become involved
in these or any of our other projects, I would definitely like to hear from
you. No defined time commitments required - you are the one to generously
volunteer some of your free time and you can decide how much time you are
able to devote to these endeavors.

Once again, this past month, a number of necrologies have been placed online
from a wide range of communities - >from Estonia, Satu Mare, Romania, Mlyniv,
Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in
knowing more about the project, what books are available and where they may
be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this
information at: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html
