UDEL is reported to be a song in Greek, derived from Edel the eldest

Re: Lincoln Brigade and Spanish Civil War #usa

Kenneth Ryesky
 

Have you checked out the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives at New York University's Tamiment Library?
 
 
Physical access is now closed on account of this WuFlu epidemic and is now strictly online, but way back about 20 years ago when I wanted to access it, I was told that access was limited to NYU students and faculty, OR to students and faculty from other institutions by special arrangement with their own institution's library.  Fortunately, I was part-time faculty at Queens College CUNY and was friendly with some of the people in the library there, so I did get access.
 
It is noted that many Lincoln Brigade volunteers fought under a nom de guerre and/or had already been using names other than their birth names (a common ploy on the part of Communist Party apparatchiks in the USA).  These included my grandfather's cousin, Arnold Reid (ne Reisky), who was killed in Spain.

Re: Looking for family of Julius JACOB who emigrated to Australia in 1939 from Willmars, Germany #general #germany

Rodney Eisfelder
 

Dear Dmjacobs,
Julius Jacob, born 5-May-1876, died 14-Jul-1957 is buried next to Berta Jacob (nee Rheinganum), born 11-Jun-1887, died 5-Jul-1941. She is presumably his wife.
You can do the search yourself from http://www.rookwoodjewishcemetery.com.au/
and view the headstone.
Several files in the National Archives https://www.naa.gov.au/  state that he arrived on the "NIAGARA" on 11-Mar-1939
however, I haven't found Berta's arrival documented. The evidence may be in one of Julius's files, which have not yet been digitized.

I hope this helps,

Re: parents as "cousins" on Ancestry.com #dna

Alexander Press
 

Just a quick follow-up regarding Ancestry.com. Going over my niece's list of shared matches, I was able to check several documentable fourth and fifth cousins, all correctly identified as such on Ancestry. From this I gather that a "4th-6th cousin" or a "5th-8th cousin" may be just that and not some phantasmic relationship. On the other hand, I have found 23 and Me virtually useless for establishing relationships. Whereas Ancestry sometimes understates them (e.g., a third cousin identified as "4th-6th"), 23 and Me clearly overstates them. Thus I would avoid lumping the two services together. Ancestry is actually so good that I wish it could be a bit better, but my hunch is that it provides enough information to allow a skilled codebreaker to cluster the matches along discernible branches even with the interference created by endogamy. One complaint I have is that there's a mysterious canyon between 90 cm and 60 cm, which customer service has been unable to explain.

Re: How to make sense of two death records that don't make sense to me #germany

Robert Hanna
 

My two Max brothers were Moshe and Mordechai.  Neither one of them came to the US, but their descendants Anglicized both their names to Max.  It took me a long time and several documents to figure out that they weren't the same person, but were, in fact, brothers.

Viewmate tombstone photo #photographs #belarus #translation

Harlan Weller
 

I have uploaded a picture of my ggm's tombstone from Svir as Viewmate # 82731 and asked for assistance in translating.  Two people have been kind enough to respond, but they were unable to read the material at the bottom of the tombstone.  Luckily, I have the attached picture from 100 years ago which shows my ggf standing next to the stone.  Perhaps that will help.

p.s. The newer picture was downloaded from a newspaper article about 5 years ago (I think it was in Israel Today) reporting on a college student trip to fix up the cemetery.  Imagine my surprise when I saw a photograph that accompanied the article and recognized it as a picture of my ggm's tombstone.


Re: Daniel Levy out west #usa

Sherri Bobish
 


Hi Carol,

This doesn't answer your question on what became of Daniel LEVY, but have you seen the 1902 newspaper article from The NY Evening World about Isabella Levy's will?  It lists her husband as Ernest, and names the other children.  None of those listed is named Daniel.

You can see the article by searching Isabella Levy (do an exact search) at:
www.fultonhistory.com
It is a free site.

Also, Daniel's birth is listed in the NYC birth index on 03 Jul 1861.  Parents Ernest and Isabella.

Good luck in your search,
