Norm, please get in touch with Yulia about the payment. The book can be purchased by subscription only, so she'll need to have the payment for it. 

Thanks.
Inna.

Beverley, I was referring to NY, NJ, and CT or PA.  Sorry for the confusion.

Thank you for sharing.  Best wishes on connecting to your new family when you do so.


Re: DNA ethnicity

Not to alarm you, but if your grandparents were arrested, they could have been exiled to Siberia, sentenced to a labor camp, or even executed.  

An uncle told me years ago that my grandfather's brother was arrested around that time, and it was assumed he was deported to Siberia.  But I later found my great-uncle's name on a website listing "victims of Stalin," indicating that he was executed (shot) in 1937.  I've since learned the complete story from his granddaughter. 

There are many books about Stalin's purges during this time.  The "Great Purge" occurred in the late 1930s, but there were thousands of other executions carried out under Stalin until his death in 1953.

You can always donate important historical papers to a Jewish repository.  Maybe, start with the Center for Jewish History.

What happened to threads?

Dahn Cukier
 

I am getting replies but have no idea where or how
to find the original post or the thread.

Is there a setting for getting the complete thread?

One way to cut down on having too many posts
would have everyone reply to the original poster and
that person would forward or combine answers, and
reply to the list. This would
mean in short, that every poster becomes a moderator of
their threads.

Once upon a time there was a moderator for this group.....

Merv & Naomi Barnett
 

I find it curious that some posters to this group don't consider it necessary to state where they reside in the world and numerous posters don't add a signature.  Surely when anyone sends a message to a friend or work colleague or a business, emails are always signed.  

Once upon a time there was a moderator who kept us all in line and brought these omissions to our attention.  I'm not suggesting we need to go back to an overseer but common courtesy would be welcome and appreciated.

Re: Do you keep passports?

Robert Fraser
 

Absolutely!

Passports are not only vital official and formal evidence, if it should be needed, but essential in family research. I still have my parent's (german) passports from when they left Vienna for Britain in 1939, with the various stamps and visas. They provided much-needed assistance when I was re-constructing their migration history.

If the mother is still living, I ask her.  Sometimes it's nice to know that someone cares about the stubbed off branches.  Some have hardly been able to talk about that empty crib.


Re: Sare Czarne Margulies

Renee Steinig
 

It's possible that there were two more children. Gesher Galicia's All Galicia Database (https://search.geshergalicia.org) also lists

Samuel GROS, son of Herz and Channa
Birth registered in Lwow in 1826

An unnamed daughter of Herz GROSS and Chana
Age 7 days
Death registered in Lwow in 1833

Like the other children, they were members of "Congregational Family 2408," so perhaps Channa and Chana were misspellings of Czarne.

Also in the All Galicia Database: 

The marriage (1862, Lwow) of Isaac Juda GROSS, son of Herz GROSS and Sara Czarna, and Slatta DRUKER, daughter of Simon FREUD and Bella DRUKER.

Jane,

No one remembers where the Mexican story/connection came from,  family gossip is the best I came up with.   Well, DNA has fixed that.   Now to figure out what is 51% Jewish  actually means.

Thank you!  I am open to this new adventure.

Thanks for sharing.   So far I have found I have 4 half Siblings on my BF side.   They are processing it all and have not been wanting to connect at this point, which is understandable.   I think time will fix all.
