December 2013 JGSGW meeting announcement #general

Robin Meltzer
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington invites you to
join us for our December meeting, Sunday, December 8, 2013

Elijah Schulman will speak about 'Simcha in Selma: Back to My Family's
Roots'

1:00 p.m. schmooze

1:30 p.m. meeting with announcements and introduction of new
members and visitors

2:00 p.m. main program

Location: Beth El Hebrew Congregation, 3830 Seminary Road,
Alexandria, VA 23304

When Elijah's ancestors came to the United States, instead of staying
in New York like most Jews, they went to the south, specifically Alabama.
For his Bar Mitzvah Project, Elijah Schuman chose to raise funds for
the Mishkan Israel Temple in Selma, Alabama.

The synagogue itself is a beautiful building that can still be visited
today. But unfortunately, nearly all of the children of the congregation
members left Selma for the big cities, and the congregation slowly died out.
Now, there are only seven remaining members, all over the age of sixty.
Since there are so few members left, the temple is used less and less, and
has fallen into disrepair. That is why Elijah's project is raising money to
help restore the building. Once it is fully restored, the members may choose
to donate additional funds to the Institute of Southern Jewish Life to be
used as a museum.

Elijah Schulman, now 13 and a bar mitzvah, is a resident of Bethesda, MD.
He is an 8th grader at Takoma Park Middle School. Please visit
www.elijahschulmanbarmitzvah.com for extra details, articles, photos and
links about Elijah's project.

Following the main program, there will be a discussion of how to engage the
younger generation in genealogy. The discussion will address current JGSGW
projects involving the Melvin J. Berman Hebrew Academy and the Charles E.
Smith Day School, as well as plan for a NextGen program in DC.

DNA from the recently-deceased #general

Peter Lebensold <peterlebensold@...>
 

I have just come across this - and offer it for what it's worth. (I have
no connection with the company or service mentioned.)

A new Ontario, Canada-based firm called DNA Memorial
( http://www.dnamemorial.com/ ) claims to be able to
help families store the DNA of dead relatives.

Comprising of a team that has worked in the field of DNA extraction
for the past 25 years, the company works with funeral homes (across North
America only, for the moment) to arrange samples being collected and
delivered to its labs. After a swab has been taken, the sample is extracted
and preserved in a powder, which holds the DNA indefinitely at room
temperature. The powder is then sent to loved ones "in a decorative vial"
and can be returned to the lab at any point to have it genetically tested -
at any point in the future - to trace ancestry and spot patterns of family
health issues.

MODERATOR NOTE: Extended discussion of issues related to DNA
use in genealogy is beyond the scope of this group and this
is being posted for information only. It is not the start of a thread.

Re: How to find a Rabbi or Cantor? #bessarabia

Alan Shuchat
 

For biographical information about cantors, there is a book in Yiddish entitled, "Kultur-treger
fun der yidisher liturgye", by Eliahu (Elias) Zaludkowski, published in 1930 in Detroit. It has
information about individual cantors, conductors, and cantorial music in general (khazones,
khazonim, un dirizhorn).

According to the WorldCat database, it's available at several libraries and by Interlibrary Loan.

Re: DNA Test to Prove Parentage #dna

Carolyn Lea
 

The full sequence mtDNA test has nothing to do with medical
information. if you test with either FamilyTreeDNA (Which I would
recommend) or Ancestry the information provided is purely of
genealogical significance. They do not test for health issues. As of
yesterday the same is true of 23andMe as their "medical" information has
been shut down at least until they provide the required information to
the FDA.

If this woman believes someone is not her mother she should test her
mtDNA (full sequence) and either that of her mother or another daughter
(whom she believes is the daughter) - or alternatively any woman in the
direct female line her "mother" shares that she believes to be true.

Autosomal DNA will test both genders and it is not clear here if she
believes the father is her father. If she doesn't, autosomal testing may
show she is not related at all to this family or related more distantly.
If she does, autosomal testing will not distinguish which results are
those of which parent.

There is plenty of information outside of this forum on which test to
take and what it will help you achieve. I have learned a lot since my
post of a month and a half ago. FTDNA can help answer many of your
questions in the FAQ's area of the website.

When anyone talks about taking legal action against family members,
adapted family or not, it makes me leery. I hope she was not a victim of
abuse. In my family all the lawsuits were fights over inheritance and
property.

Y DNA Project for well documented families in the Frankfurt area and elsewhere -- our new website #dna

Janet Akaha <Akaha@...>
 

About 3 years ago Rachel Unkefer and I started a Y DNA (male only)
project for the Jewish families of the Frankfurt area who have
documented lineages that go back at least to the 17th Century.
However, because these families traveled widely, we expect that
the DNA of the Jews >from the Frankfurt/Worms/Mainz area represents
Jews in all parts of Eastern and Western Europe. This is
illustrated by the fact that we have several different clusters
where the oldest known common ancestor lived as far back as the
12th-14th Century. Among our members are direct line male "Y"
offspring of several rabbinical dynasties including; WEIL,
BACHARACH, TREVES, MaHaRaL of Prague (originally >from Worms), and
HALPERN/HEILBRONN(ER). We also think we will be able to do the
same for SHAPIRO/SPIRA in the near future, and we have documented
the Y DNA for WERTHEIMER, OPPENHEIMER & GUGGENHEIM who were famous
as court Jews and bankers.

So you must be asking how this can help me if all of these people
are >from Germany and I can only go back to the early 19th Century
in eastern europe! Well, it can help a lot by possibly helping
you connect to an ancestor who lived hundreds of years earlier
than your oldest known ancestor. For each of our participants who
have a well documented lineage, there are many more people on
their DNA match list who have family trees just like yours. The
implications for their lucky matches is that they suddenly know
that they are likely to share the same oldest known ancestor as
these other well documented families. They still have to work out
the paper trail, but it certainly becomes much clearer when you
have a DNA trail to follow!

I would like to invite you to visit our new website at

http://jewsoffrankfurt.com

You will find "Y Family Charts" for many of the families we are
researching. As my charts differ >from normal family trees, please
read our "Start Here" page first so you can better understand this
difference. Our home page includes a long list of the Frankfurt
surnames we are researching. I haven't quite been able to add
charts for all of them yet. But we have about 40 charts with the
hope of eventually having charts for all of the families. Our
surname list is not exhaustive and we do not restrict the project
only to the Frankfurt area, as we know that Frankfurt was closely
tied to other communities like Hamburg, Metz, and even Prague.
But if a surname appears in the Ele Toldot records of Shlomo
Ettlinger prior to 1700, that would clearly qualify a direct line
male offspring to join. Even if you don't understand how Y DNA
can be helpful in your own personal research, please visit our
website. We have tried to explain in simple terms some of the
basics. For those of you who are scared of DNA for either privacy
reasons or a lack of science background, we have additional
information on genetic genealogy on our website that will help
clarify. But if you still have concerns or questions, please
contact me.

I hope to hear >from many of you who either have pedigrees that
*either* go back to the Frankfurt area or have direct line male
lineages that go back to at least the 17th Century in eastern
europe. We would be happy to look at your lineage and see if it
fits with our project and our home page also has additional
information about joining. If you have a line that fits our
criteria, but you do not have the Y DNA for your line, we may be
able to help you find someone who does. We also welcome
volunteers, and I would be willing to share some of my
information (which includes much of the Frankfurt Ele Toldot
records) with anyone who would like to assist us in either
researching, contacting, or testing a participant.

FYI, to join our project it does require that you have done a Y
DNA test at Family Tree DNA. Feel free to pass this along to any
of your cousins or friends who may be interested!

Yizkor books #latvia

Sue Levy
 

Every month I eagerly check the Yizkor Books list for communities in Latvia.
Today I also checked the master list and have discovered there are none at
all.

This is a shocking discovery, that nobody has yet compiled a written
memorial to place online in memory of our ancestors and relatives who
perished at the hands of their neighbours and the Nazis. Unfortunately I
have nothing other than my family trees - no confirmation of the fate of my
grandmother's cousins and their families who stayed behind, nor any
description, however shocking, of events in the towns where they lived.

I have visited Latvia and the memorial sites at Bikernieki Forest, Rumbula
and Salaspils and seen familiar surnames carved on the stones, but that is
not enough.

What are we to do?
