Re: UPDATE Surprising DNA results from Ancestry

Karen Lukeman
 

So glad that you have been able to open a new chapter. My husbands parents divorced right after he was born, and his mother's side did not want the father or his family to have contact with Joe. Joe lived all of his life thinking and accepting that his father didn't want him. (Joe is now 68). Then I started doing genealogy about 7 years ago, and with a friend's help, found Joe's father's family. His father had passed away, but Joe had an aunt and uncle, whom we have seen many times. We were also invited to a cousin's wedding last year. Then we found, through DNA, that Joe had a half-brother and half-sister that neither his aunt or uncle knew about. The half-brother is less accepting, but we are planning a trip to to visit the half-sister this year! This is a long way to say, you never know. 😊. All the best to you!!


Re: thoughts - opinions

Trudy asked about including babies who died at birth in the family database.  I do include these infants in my family research.  It says a lot about life and lose.  When I look at a family group and see that the mother had 10 children born and only 3 survived to adulthood, it tells me much about the family and what they went through

compilations include 158 component lists and a total of 46,906 lines.

Detailed information about the GDL project, including guidance and
examples of locating one's ancestors in these patronymic records
(i.e., no surnames, for the most part) can be found on our GDL page,
https://www.litvaksig.org/research/grand-duchy-of-lithuania-gdl/gdl-following-the-paper-trail.
The compilations may be downloaded - no password needed - >from our GDL

We thank Dorothy Leivers for her dedication to this project. We also
thank Sonia Hoffman and the late David Hoffman, who initiated the GDL
project and donated the full set of scans and their partially
completed transcription work to LitvakSIG.

LitvakSIG is an independent organization that raises its own funds and
determines its own activities. As always, we are grateful to our
donors and translators, without whom we could not make these records
available. These records have been available exclusively to our donors
for about the past 18 months. To learn how to support LitvakSIG's work

Re: DNA ethnicity

Other than looking for their names in JewishGen, I would also look at: genteam.eu
They have some records about conversions in Austro-Hungary.

Sticking with the conversion theory....I think that there may have been a process of converting and therefore documents. Might anyone know about this process and how I could access such documents.

southeastern Poland, under the auspices of the Marshal of Podkarpackie
[Subcarpathian] voivodeship, Wladyslaw Ortyl.

The complete list of towns and villages is: Baranow Sandomierski,
Blazowa, Czudec, Debica, Dukla, Dynow, Glogow Malopolski, Gniewczyna

under Prof. Waclaw Wierzbieniec. Many other institutions, though, are
also involved in the sponsorship and organization of events, including
municipal councils, cultural centers, schools, teacher training
colleges, historical societies, organizations for the preservation of

To all, here is Yulia's email yulia13.prokop@.... Please feel free to reach out to her with all questions about her book. 

Yulia is a historian who lives in Odessa, Ukraine. The book is in Russian; however, if there is enough interest, she may consider translating it to English. There might be a digital version available in the future, but there is no estimated time when it'll happen. As I mentioned the book will be published soon: the original ETA was February this year. 

The shipping will be expensive, but if we do it in batches it might reduce the shipping price. I'll be ordering a few copies, if you live in tri-state area and interested in purchasing the book, please reach out to me. Thanks. Inna.

I always include babies who died at birth in my family tree, even if they were unnamed, it has amazed the family because they didn’t know about them.

INTRO - MILLINGEN and GOLDSCHMIDT #germany

Brian and Margaret Johnston <johnstonbm@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for several
years. I consider myself to be intermediate in doing German Jewish Genealogy
research. My native language is English and I also know some German language
as I can use Google translator. I consider myself advanced in using a
computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive.

I believe that my four times great grandfather, Samuel van Millingen's
sister Blume von Millingen was the second wife of Salomon 'Shlome'
Goldschmidt (1720-1793), a financier born at Frankfurt, son of Michel Moses
Goldschmidt and Gutle Landau-Ochse. He was buried in Battonstrasse Jewish
cemetery in Frankfurt. He was >from family of Gluckiel of Hameln Goldschmidt.
Blume von Millingen died in London c1800. Blume and Salomon Goldschmidt had
two children, Lewis Goldsmith (c1763-1846), a noted political writer and
Sara Goldsmith (c1865-1833) who married Raphael Samuel Haarbleicher in
Hamburg.

Salomon 'Shlome' Goldschmidt's first wife was his cousin, Fraidsche
Goldschmidt-Hameln who died in 1758.Their only child was Moses Salomon
Goldschmidt (1757-1830). His second marriage to Blume von Millingen is not
recorded on any Goldschmidt family trees online. Millingen family records
show that Blume von Millingen was married to 'Solomon Goldsmith', a London
financier who came >from family of Gluckel von Hameln. Can anyone help me in
identifying Blume von Millingen's husband?

Is there a way to verify a family story? #sephardic

Alan Tapper <sabaalan@...>
 

I have been told that the family left Seville in 1391 for Istanbul.
My question is that, I have been told that there are no records of
non-Turkish citizens. Are there any records for arrivals? I was
also told that the family business grew as the Ottoman empire grew
and by 1650 they lived in both Lvov and Kobryn. Any records to
support this information?

Re: thoughts - opinions

The simple answer is a resounding YES

Genealogy must be a factual record. not a beautified one.  Sadly, some children die,   some even at birth.

JGAS of Greater Philadelphia -January, 2020 Meeting


Date: Sunday, January 19, 2020

Time: 1:30 PM

Place:   Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel
            8339 Old York Road intersection of Old York Road (Route 611)
            at Township Line (Route 73) Elkins Park, PA 19027

Speaker: Fred Blum, Past President of the JGASGP.





Topic: How to Locate Individuals through Genealogy



Fred started his attorney service company, B&R Services for Professionals in 1968. In 1988 he obtained his Private Detective license.

 In 1998 he became interested in his family history. He studied genealogy and was able to locate his ancestors dating back to 1810.

To date he has identified 1200 family members. With the knowledge he obtained, in 2005 he decided to volunteer for the IRC Holocaust

Tracing Service, to reconnect Jewish, Polish and Ukrainian Holocaust survivors. In 2006 he was awarded the local and national "Volunteer of the Year" Award from the IRC.

Fred will teach us some techniques he uses to locate individuals through genealogy. This information will enable researchers to not only locate family,

uncover distant relatives, assist in searching for heirs, as well as locating missing relatives.

Mentors will also be available from 1:00 PM until the start of the meeting to help with your research efforts.

JGASGP website http://www.jgsgp.org is now available with latest news and upcoming meeting notices,

and links to Philadelphia resources.

We can also be found on Facebook.
