6:00-7:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time
 
Online presentation
 
Adoption and Misattributed Parentage Events:  DNA-based Research Strategies
Speaker: Meredith Sellers
 
Hoping to shed light on adoption and misattributed parentage events in your own family tree?  Eager to use your skills to help adoptees connect with biological family members?  Join us to discover how the results of direct-to-consumer genetic tests, Leeds analysis tools, and “What Are the Odds Trees” can help solve decades-old mysteries.  The talk will also address the challenges and nuances of these DNA-based research strategies for those of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage.
 
Meredith Sellers is a genealogist with a passion for integrating traditional archival research with learnings from direct-to-consumer genetic testing.  Most recently, she has applied these interests by serving as a volunteer “search angel” with the DNA Detectives and Search Squad Facebook communities.  Professionally, Meredith is a technical consultant with a doctoral degree in chemical engineering and the author of numerous books, journal articles, and patents.

Re: jews in hiding in freezone France #france #holocaust

Beverly Bienstock Margolies
 

You should also try contacting the mayor of the towns.  My parents hid in Ceyroux in the French Creuse province. The mayor gave my dad a new identity card to hide his Jewish name.  Even if the mayor was not involved in your family's hiding, s/he should know some of the history and which citizens were involved in the resistance, etc.
good luck in your search.

I am trying to figure out what the father's name on this tombstone might be.  I can read the Hebrew, but the name is not known to me.  Any suggestions?

Hello Genners, 
 
This photograph of my great uncle, Josef Jekiel (Landman) was taken just before 1917, he was a medical officer in the military.  He died in 1917.  Can anyone tell me if this is a Polish or Russian uniform?.  He was born in Stanislaw in the late 1800's.
 
Thank you and  stay well

Even the imperfect trees have led to amazing discoveries of “lost” branches of my family. Tomorrow morning I get to zoom with my cousin in Denver and our newly-discovered cousin in South Africa. I’ll take all the trees I can get!

Re: Romanian immigrants in Rockland County NY in 1900 #romania #usa #general

Karen Lefkowitz
 

My husband’s great grandfather bought a farm in Nanuet (Rockland County) probably in the early 1920’s.  He was a tailor on the lower East Side. Prior to buying the farm, he rented one in Connecticut. I believe he received assistance from the Jewish Agricultural Society. I was also told that all the Jewish farmers in the Catskills received help from them.

David ABRAMOWITZ (?)-Boston, late 19th early 20th cent. #usa

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My great grandfather's brother ,David ABRAMOWITZ left New Haven, Ct.,
sometime around the turn of the 19-20 th. cent. (maybe earlier) to
seek his fortune in Boston. He found work in a dept. store and (after
marrying into family of the owners ?) rose to managerial position.

In the mid1930s my grandfather tried to contact his uncle at the dept.
store and was "brushed off" being told that David was an elderly man ,
not in good health and was vacationing in his winter home in Florida.

David may have changed his family name (ABRAMS?) and most likely did
not lead an orthodox jewish life as my grandfather did and may not
have wanted to have contact with his religious family.

David was one of four orphaned siblings who came to the USA (New
Haven) with their widowed mother Gittle ABRAMOWITZ, originally from
Novarodok (Belarus ?) presumably around 1870-1880. He was probably
close to his sister Sarah (don't know her married name) but she and
her husband lived (or vacationed) on Coney Island, NYC. My late
mother met Sarah on Coney Island during the first half of the 1930s.
Sarah seems to have had a grandson, Tom, who also may have also lived
or studied in college in the 1930s and was my mother's age (then early
20s).

The above was wrtten in my mother's autobiography and I am not sure
that all the details are 100% correct.

If the above story sounds familiar to anyone I would be happy to hear from you.

TIA

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

p.s. My great great grandmother was somehow related to Rabbi Isaac
Simcha HUREWITZ who served during the first decades of the 20 th cent.
in Hartford, Ct.

the commercial sites hold out the promise of magically finding all your relatives, neatly laid out for you by their genealogical pixies, and all you have to do is click on the link (and please have your credit card ready).  many beginners seem to fall for this, and happily glom onto what they think is “their file”.

this reminds me of an old jewishgen infofile, which is good reading, especially for newbies:

Re: Vetting family tree submissions to genealogy sites for data soundness #general

anybody who’s been doing research for more than a few days has come across bad information, because there’s so much of it, and yes, it’s made worse by being copied-and-pasted into hundreds of locations.

i suggest people might want to share tips on how to spot bad information.  i unsourced information is automatically suspect, but not all public trees allow sources.  and sometimes details are a giveaway, like inconsistent dates or spouse’s name, or occupation.  or sometimes there’s a whole lot of duplication of entire sections of the tree.

the other aspect of poor vetting is how to make corrections.  the posters of poorly researched data don’t always want to fix it.  either they’re unable to imagine that they could have made a mistake, or they’re more interested in just having the biggest tree, or whatever.  but suggesting corrections can be a frustrating experience.

Immigration to US of Avram/Abraham BERCOVICI/BERKOWITZ from #romania

Mike Grossman
 

I have searched major sites for arrival information of Avram/Abraham BERCOVICI/BERKOWITZ born in Romania around 1884, arriving in US around 1903/4, and settling in Philadelphia (appears there in 1910 US Census) . Also searching for arrival information of wife Pepi/Bessie BRODER (nee)/BERKOWITZ born in Romania around 1884 and arriving in US around 1903/4, because daughter Pearl born 25 December 1903 (one records show 1902) in Romania and was 7 in 1910 US Census. Other 3 children were born in Philadelphia: Dora/Dorothy on 09 Aug 1904/5, Jacob/Jack on 20 Sept 1905/6, and Ella/Alice on 7 July 1907.
I'm stuck, and any information leading to the arrival dates/ships for Avram/Abraham, Pepi/Bessie, and Pearl will be much appreciated. I've searched arrival records of NY Ellis Island, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Canadian Border. The closest hit I get is Abraham Berkowitz (but he still went by Avram Bercovici in 1907) , arriving on the ship Saint Louis on 18 July 1904, but with no family.
Thank you.

Re: Searching FERTEL in America #ukraine #usa

Emily Garber
 

Jana:

I have been doing a long-term community study of the town of Labun (called Lubin in Yiddish and now known as Yurovshchina, Ukraine), which is 18 miles from Shepetivka. In 1921, a family of five children (Mania, Jankiel, Chaim, Mojze and Usla Fertel) arrived in the United States heading for their uncle Hyman Boris. They had all been born in Labun. Their parents were Abraham and Fannie (likely Feiga) Fertel. In the United States, the children took the surname Fetell. My research also indicates that they had an uncle in the United States named Ben Fetell.

My blog contains two posts regarding Fetell family members:
http://extrayad.blogspot.com/2015/09/treasure-chest-thursday-henry-i-fetell.html 
http://extrayad.blogspot.com/2015/10/tombstone-tuesday-benjamin-and-adell.html (Adell Fetell Norflus had been Usla Fertel)

If you think this may be your family, please contact me privately and I will share more information and records.

Re: Vetting family tree submissions to genealogy sites for data soundness #general

WWW
 

Not the site but the Submitter. The keyword is Submitted. The submitted information is only as good as the quality check done by the original submitter, not the site itself.
Matches and Hints are suggestions. Double check. Others might automatically add a "hint" or "match" to their own tree, not realizing the information is not correct or a completely different person with a similar name.
Over the years the issue is compounded by more trees copying the same misinformation.  
 So always track back to the source to confirm.
