R, Todres Yehuda Zundel ben R. Yakov halevi Ish Horowitz #rabbinic

Jo Batya <rainydays120@...>
 

I am seeking info about the children and descendants of R. Todres
Yehuda Zundel ben r. Yakov halevi Ish Horowitz. R. Todros Yehuda Zundel
wrote the books "Shoresh M'Yakov". He was the only chid of his parents.
His mother was Sarah bat R. Moshe ben r. Todros Ramraz.

I am especially interested in finding out more about his father, R.
Yakov Horowitz and Horowitz grandfather as well as connection to R.
Efraim Zalmon Margoliot.

Any info will be deeply appreciated.

Shabbat Shalom

IAJGS Conferences #rabbinic

Michael Goldstein
 

This is an appeal directed to every Jewish genealogist who is a member of a
JGS, a SIG, an active or passive participant in JewishGen discussion groups
etc. For over three decades, IAJGS has produced successful annual
international conferences. These successes are a result of dedicated JGS
leadership motivating their dedicated volunteers. The conferences enhance
all our research efforts through lectures, workshops, and networking. All
conferences need volunteers and this is an area where you can be of
assistance. We also encourage you to ask your JGS to host or co-host a
conference with IAJGS. The work will be hard, success virtually assured but
the satisfaction of what you achieve will be over the top. It will be a
partnership dedicated to adding yet another successful conference to the
long list of previous successes. We are now actively seeking locations for
the years 2016, 2017, and 2018.

This past fall, IAJGS Immediate Past President, Anne Feder Lee and Board
Director, Jackye Sullins, completed the mammoth task of updating our
conference guide now titled: Conference Planning & Management Guide for
IAJGS International Conferences on Jewish Genealogy. This will help us
produce even better conferences in the future.

High on the heels of this past summer's very successful conference hosted
by the Los Angeles JGS, excitement is building towards Washington, DC this
August where the JGS of Greater Washington is the host. We hope to see you
there!

Thank you.

A.A. Sacks #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Barry Mann had a copy of the book by A.A. Sacks and loaned it to me several
years ago and I then passed it onto someone else to read. It was replete
with descriptions of places he went in Europe including his ancestral shtetl
of Zeimelis. The photos were quite interesting.

Excerpts and descriptions of photos in the book can be found on Barry Mann's
Zeimelis site which you can view at the following link:
http://www.mannbarry.net/Zeimelis/Book%20-%20An%20Excursion%20to%20Lithuania/An%20Excursion%20to%20Lithuania.doc

I don't believe that Abraham A. Sacks wrote anything further, just the
travelogue.

Shalom,

Details about Rabbi Yissachar Dov (Ber) ILLOWY are found in the
Hebrew book "HaChatam Sofer VeTalmidav" (The Chatam Sofer - Rabbi
Moshe SOFER of Pressburg - and his pupils), by Rabbi Rabbi M.A.Z
Kunstlicher.

The details include his biography, some genealogical details,
portrait, an image of a letter he wrote and his tombstone inscription.

He died in 3rd of Tamuz 5631 (= 1871) and buried in Cincinatti.

Re: Grave inscriptions - Chaf Dalet acrostic ? #rabbinic

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Thanks to all who replied, I should have been more clear in my
question - my problem was with the yom bet + what appears to be a date
(chaf dalet).

Some people wrote saying Bet should be the day of the week.
I checked a calendar and indeed the date falls on a Monday.

I came across some tombs that contain one more acrostic unknown to me.
Here are two examples of what I am talking about:

One grave has: "Niftar yom Bet (next line) Chaf Dalet Menachem Av..."
The other has: "Niftar yom Dalet Chaf Dalet Adar..."

What is the meaning of the Chaf Dalet ?

Re: Meaning of Difference between new Illumina results and old #dna

SVass <SVass@...>
 

Most importantly, consider all results preliminary until about mid-
April. There will be adjustments to their algorithms that may move
persons around a bit. Also new SNPs will be added for a few weeks.
I can speculate that some may fill in gaps between segments.

For those who have results >from the first test, download and save
both the data and your cousins list as they may go away in the future.

In your specific case, it would be speculation on my part to determine
what caused the change. You would have had to have used Leon Kull's
utility (or an equivalent) to compare the segments formerly found in
common and redone the comparison for new results.

Could someone please explain the nature of the changes in the

NOTE: This change won't matter for those getting new tests now.
Its only an issue for those who got the FF completed before this year (or

The old results have been saved, for those who are wondering.
