Conventions for writing down uncertain relationships

Alberto Guido Chester
 

Hi all
I use My Heritage software.
Is there any broadly accepted convention in this or other software to write down a relative I am not sure of ?
Many years ago, I used to keep those not sure relations in my papers. 
But now, when online trees will be available for distant relatives even when I am not living any more, I feel these cases should be included in the tree.
I think of noting something like "relation not proven yet" besides the name, but feels untidy to me.
A dotted line (like before printed trees existed) would be appropriate, but I do not think they are available in genealogy software.
All ideas are welcome.
Thanks in advance

Hello

Can anyone recommend a genealogy program that is vertical and simple to use? I stopped researching years ago after entering 600 names when my upgraded program became too complicated, but I would like to start researching again.

Thank you.

Re: Include Family Name in Subject

Precisely!  Exactly what I was trying to explain.  This does not result in a long subject line because we are usually asking about one or two people at a time.

"My understanding of Marjorie's original post was that when posting a message about searching for some elusive relative, the subject should include the relative's name, rather than just e.g. "searching for lost relative".
I don't believe anyone in this thread meant you should put your names of interest in the subject line."

Is it possible that they divorced and then got back together?  I have relatives who did that.

Re: (US-Bronx, Queens NYC) Naturalization Records from Bronx and Queens to Become Available Online #Records Access

,,,,, please let us know when the records become available.

The Bronx naturalizations are available ,,,, just not online at this moment.  The Italian Gen group has a good online index and you can mail order the documents from the Bronx County Clerk.  There's a form to download online.

Also any naturalization after 1906 is duplicated in Washington DC but if you can it is much better, cheaper and faster, to gt them from the local court.

It will be nice to have these records online by 2022, but you do not have to wait to get to them until then.

John, it looks like it dates from the late 1960s-early 1970s.  First published reference I found was 1974.

Siriasis = sunstroke.  Possible!

Researcher need for Fridson's in Grodno archive

Bob Silverstein
 

I am researching Fridson/Friedson/Fridzon from Motol and would like to find a researching who can look for records in Grodno archive.  Can anyone recommend someone?

Thanks,
Bob


Re: Fridson, Fridzon, and Friedson

Bob Silverstein
 

Thank you Diane.  No Fridson's.  If I every figure out this family, I will post it.


Re: 19th century medical condition

Danielle Weiner
 

I think Pieter's best guess of 'siriasis' is the most likely. 

Not that it proves anything definitive, but, what time of the year did he die?  If it was during the warmer months, that adds a little credibility to this possibility.

Re: 19th century medical condition

Pieter Hoekstra
 

It is helpful when asking for a word translation or interpretation to include the whole sentence for correct context.
My best guess is the illness has been mis-spelt from it's original which could be "Siriasis - Inflammation of the brain due to sun exposure".


Re: Introduction

Pieter Hoekstra
 

Thank you for your response Dianne, however my research is not centred in Australia but families living in UK. Sorry if my original post was not clear.

For others researching Australia, the book you mention is "These Are the Names - Jewish Lives in Australia, 1788-1850" by John Levi (he is a Rabbi). It has biographical entries for over 1600 Jews who settled in Australia between 1788 and 1850.

My specific research right now is to find parents of the following ancestors:

1a. Ellen JOSEPH b.(LAZARUS) 1813 London. I believe father is Michael LAZARUS b.c.1770 but I have no record. Michael's father may have been born in Hessen, Germany.
1b. Her husband - Isaac JOSEPH b.London c.1796 - d.1867 London
      Ellen and Isaac married 29 May 1939

2a. Benjamin MOSES b.London c.1806   Father could be Aharon MOSES
2b. His wife - Hannah LEVY (LEVI) b. London c.1806  Father could be Isaiah HaLevi

       Benjamin and Hannah married 2 Nov 1823

JewishGen Announces the Second Annual Future Scholars 

Fellowship Program and Heritage Tour


JewishGen.org, in partnership with The Matzevah Foundation and the Friends of Jewish Heritage in Poland, is pleased to announce the second annual JewishGen Future Scholars Fellowship program to take place from July 14, 2020 – July 23, 2020. We invite graduate students as well as third and fourth-year college students to apply for this unique opportunity.


Six Future Scholars will travel to Poland to participate in this program, focusing on the role of Jewish cemeteries today in preserving the memory and legacy of former Jewish communities. They will tour many Jewish Heritage sites and will be involved in the clean-up and preservation of a Jewish cemetery in partnership with local residents. 


The trip will be led by highly experienced staff, and participants will have an opportunity to learn from rabbis, scholars, dignitaries, and community leaders, who will offer first-hand insights regarding the imperative (and challenges) of cleaning-up cemeteries in accordance with Jewish law. 


To learn more and to apply for the 2020 program, please visit https://www.jewishgen.org/fellowship/. Applications must be submitted by February 28, 2020.
