Re: Rabbenu Efraim b. Efraim Ha Gibor #rabbinic

There is a Rabbi Ephraim of Regensburg in the Jewish Encyclopedia,
<http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/5797-ephraim-b-isaac-of-regensburg>,
of approximately the right time period. but his father was Isaac.
and his dates, 1110-1175 are a bit off, as well.

He could possibly be the great-grandfather, if his grandson was named
Ephraim just after his death in 1175, who then died young (25), leaving
behind a newborn to carry his name as Ephraim ben Ephraim.

mtDNA? #dna

Helen Gardner
 

Hi all.

At age 77, none of my parents' generation are alive now, and of those
of my generation still with us, virtually all have declined to do a
DNA test through various fears of one kind and another (mostly to do
with medical findings or on-selling of results, and even though I have
told them repeatedly that genetic DNA testing such as FTDNA doesn't
collect medical information, and FTDNA does not on-sell results they
remain unconvinced and uncooperative). Sigh! Oh well.

Anyway, I had my autosomal DNA done some years ago and as I read more
about it, I'm thinking that mtDNA might be of some help in the
absence of DNA >from most other relatives.

Is it likely to be worth doing, and who would you recommend: FTDNA,
who did my autosomal test, or Ancestry so I could get on to their new
super collection of data? Am I likely to get anything out of Ancestry
that I can't get >from GEDmatch?

New York City Education Records or School Yearbooks #general

Jeff Miller
 

I'm interested in getting any information that might have survived related
to students who went to school in the Lower East Side, Manhattan; Brooklyn -
Brownsville; some portions of Bronx and Queens, between 1880-1940 years.

I have some family information about names of students, schools attended,
addresses, for portions of this time period.

Please advise on what might be available and how to gain access or copies of
any student records. Any libraries that might have school yearbooks would
also be of interest.

Thanks,

Researching my NUTA family (originally >from Plonsk), I found a few
NUTA in Warsaw.

Mordtka and Malka (nee NUTA) SZMULZON had twins in 1875, Ruchla and Azrjel.

Lewek and Chaia Sura (nee NUTA) PISKURZ had a daughter Chawa Ruchla
who married Fiszel BECZULKA in 1885.

Gersz and Sura (nee NUTA) JUDKEWICZ had a son Chaim who married Rojza
SZCZYPIOR in 1885.

If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me privately.

Ret: Finding a Death Certificate online #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Rashi Rosenzweig asked about finding his grandmother's death certificate
on line. At the time she died in 1964, she was a resident of New York
City.

I reply: assuming she also died in New York City, her death certificate
is simply not available on line, and currently, even the indices to death
certificates for New York City are not on line. All New York City death
certificates and indices >from 1949 onward are only at the N.Y.C.
Department of Health, and not available on line, on microfilm, or
anywhere else. They have to be requested >from the Department of Health,
although that can be done via the Internet (do a search for NYC Department
of Health and death certificates to find the application). I've been told
that if the certificate is >from more than 50 years ago, i.e., >from 1966 or
earlier, in accordance with New York State law the Department of Health is
a bit easier about releasing them, but if they're less than 50 years old,
you have to prove your direct relationship to the deceased. There's no
other way to get them.

If she died outside the city limits but elsewhere in New York state, it
has to be requested >from the New York *State* Department of Health. There
is an on line index to death certificates >from 1957 to 1967 at
