Re: JRI Poland #Poland Major new Ostrowiec Swientokrzyski records extraction project launched Minia or Me he #poland

janllb@...
 

I realize this was a couple of years ago. Where are things at presently or is the extraction and posting done? Hoping to find some trace of my family surname likely a variation on Dawidsohn or possibly Dawidowic. But one remotely resembling that surname shows in Ostrowiec presently and Yet I have a number of confirmed Ostrowiec Davidson relatives. 
Here’s what I know anecdotally or from North American records. My GGG Grandfather was Oszer Zelik surname?? b. Ostrowiec c 1829 and his wife my GGG Grandmother Raizel / Machla Rayzla Davidson (born Dawidsohn ??) b.c,1825 d. BW 1861 and 1864 in Ostrowiec. Machla Rayzla’s parents were possibly Hana (born Szlamowicz). B.c 1792 likely Ostrowiec, and d. 1831 in Gniewoszow, Radom and Mosiek (no details on him and some believe OZ took Machla Rayzla’s surname on marriage,  so he may have had a different surname originally. 
OZ’s parents were POSSIBLY father named Minia or Menye, mother  Ruchla.  No other info or surnames there. 

OZ and Machla Rayzla had at least 3 children,
1) my GG GRANDFATHER Chaim Baresh b.c 1850 and died 1910 both Ostrowiec married in Ostrowiec c.1876  to my GG Grandmother Necha Sosia / Nechie Sosza "Nacha Shosha or Nechie/Nellie Sadie" Davidson (born Katz/Kac In May 1857, in Ostrowiec, Poland who died May 14 1923, Toronto Canada.
2) daughter Sura Chaja, later married Froim Ajzenberg later Izenberg, likely in Ostrowiec
3) Sholem later Samuel b. Oct 1861 inOstrowiec who married Sarah about 1888 in Ostrowiec.

All came over to Canada already separately declaring themselves as DAVIDSONs already per ship records, but I can find no trace of any of them in Ostrowiec even by first name combinations or with spouses. 
They are the only branch of my family with no Polish records at all, only anecdotal info. 
It's very frustrating as I’ve been searching for many years, and am a fairly experienced amateur genealogist...
Can you help?

Re: USCIS questions

Renée K. Carl
 

Robert

It is not known when the proposed fees would be put in place, if at all. The immediate next step is for USCIS to review all the comments, weigh the evidence, and make decisions. The group of us at Records Not Revenue is keeping an eye on things, as is RPAC and others.

The USCIS Genealogy Program maintains information on this website: https://www.uscis.gov/genealogy. I suggest reviewing things there. As Mark said, it's not about when they arrived, though that can be a factor, it is more about when and if they naturalized. There are many, many "it depends..." but here are some basics to keep in mind:

If they were alive and NOT naturalized in 1940, when registration of Aliens began, they would have an Alien Registration Form
If they naturalized after 1944, they would have an A-file. Note that many A-files are in the process of going from USCIS to NARA-Kansas City or San Bruno, or are already there.
If they naturalized, they would have a C-file, but depending on when, the C-file won't contain more than the 3 forms of the Naturalization process available at various NARA locations.
Arrival after 1924? Visa files
Issues finding landing papers? Registry file.

There are other unique cases, such as you need to make an index search request if you think there might be an extant Board of Special Inquiry case file related to deportation hearings. Or, as in the case of my grandfather, he arrived as a child, naturalized under his father, as was the law at the time. However, when my grandfather was in his late 60s, he wrote to what was then INS to request a copy of his naturalization certificate, and to ask if his father's file gave information on proof of my grandfather's birth, as he needed to prove to Social Security his age in order to get his benefits. This created a whole slew of forms and papers that gave me details about my grandfather no one had before seen, such as a letter from the school board stating his age in first grade and the name of the school.

Every request made to USCIS is for an individual, so 4 grandparents and 2 greats = 6 requests. An index search is $65 and the copy of the resulting findings is also $65, though again, there are several "it depends" situations.

I hope this helps

Re: Surprising DNA results from Ancestry

Ina Getzoff
 

Is there anyone in your family that is still alive and might be able to help you begin looking back?  Do you have any pictures or paperwork regarding your parents that might be of help? Lately, many stories have been coming out after DNA testing that the parents that "we" thought were our biological parents actually are not. You don't indicate how old you are or where you grew up or with whom since you were very young when your mother passed away or if you actually knew your father. Those are questions that need to be answered and might be answered by the family that you lived with. 
Please post more information so our group can try and help you.

Searching for the grave of my uncle in Israel

Pavel Ravitsky
 

I’m searching for the grave of my uncle Meer ben Pinchas Rozentsvaig in Israel. He immigrated from Kishinev to Israel in 1975. His address in Israel was St. Hertzel 45/13, Akko. He probably past away in 1999. Who know what database should I search?

My step-grandmother had many family members who had emigrated from Russia to Mexico when they were not allowed to enter the United States.  Elise may well be correct.

There are no more films (unless they are on hold from before). Now everything is being digitized and available online on LDS libraries or to LDS members. The film numbers are no good anymore.

My Daughter in Law was born in Mexico City and so were her siblings and
several of her ancestors... and they are definitely Ashkenazi Jewish
from Germany, Poland and Russia when their ancestors are sought. There
is a sizable Jewish community in Mexico City...

Jews from Mexico were more likely to have Sephardic origins than Ashkenazi.

How on earth did a Jewish woman come to marry somebody from the wilds of the west of Ireland? I found a likely candidate, but can't seem to take it any further as I cannot find any information about her name (it's very unusual).  Hoping to go to Ireland later in the year and talk to some of the relatives to see if anybody remembers anything like this.  Wish you well with your search - I think it's going to be very difficult!

Re: Surprising DNA results from Ancestry

There is a lot of help on Facebook.  There are at least three Jewish genealogy groups, Tracing the Tribe, Jewish genealogy portal and Jews from Poland , a group called DNA Your Jewish journey.  In addition there are general groups for people who do not know one or more birth parents, DNA Detectives and Search Angels - also DNA for genealogy, and a Group with a very long name - Ancestry 23&me FTDNA Gedmatch MyHeritage DNA Genealogy (in some order although Ancestry is first).   I would definitely start with a DNA detectives group in addition to downloading your Ancestry results and uploading the zipped files to FTDNA, MyHeritage and Gedmatch.  Be sure to read the terms of service.  To use the chromosome browser tools - which are important, there are small one time fees at FTDNA and MyHeritage ($19 and $29 respectively I think).  Good luck to you.


Re: Surprising DNA results from Ancestry

Karen Lukeman
 

Welcome, Zora!! Bob gave you some great advice. I've done the 23andme and FTDNA DNA tests, and uploaded my data to Gedmatch and MyHeritage. My sister Nadine did the Ancestry DNA test. 

As an FYI, a good number of Jews did immigrate to Mexico, Central America and South America. I have two Mexican aunts who married two of my mother's brothers (all are Syrian Jews). And I also found, via 23andme, a third cousin whose ancestors immigrated from Syria to Dallas TX to Mexico. 

All the best and looking forward to what you find.

Re: Surprising DNA results from Ancestry

Bob, I know nothing of my father at all.   I was born in December of 1968 in Saginaw, MI.   Unfortunately, my mother was very secretive about my bio-father.  She never told anyone, according to my grandmother who passed away.   The person listed as my father was the man she was married to at the time, my two older sisters' father.  I was able to talk to him prior to him passing, he did not know who the man my mom was seeing, but knew definitely he was not my father as he was living in NY during the time I was conceived.    So, when I saw I was surprised by these results, so were my sisters and distant cousins.   Ancestry did link me to a first cousin, and I am talk to him, to see if we can figure it out, he suggested I also do the 23 and Me, which I did and I am just waiting for the results.
