Romania SIG #Romania Bacau Jewish School #romania

Bacau Jewish School
I have all the school registers >from 1893 to 1919 for boys and 1904 to 1915
for girls, for the F. Klein Jewish School in the City of Bacau Romania.
This is an absolute unique source of genealogical data, rarely explored
before.
I have discovered that a very large amount of the children who were enrolled
in the school were born in other towns around Romania, and even as far as
New York.
The registers contain, fascinating information to locate previously unknown
family data.

Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Re: Rabbenu Efraim b. Efraim Ha Gibor #rabbinic

There is a Rabbi Ephraim of Regensburg in the Jewish Encyclopedia,
<http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/5797-ephraim-b-isaac-of-regensburg>,
of approximately the right time period. but his father was Isaac.
and his dates, 1110-1175 are a bit off, as well.

He could possibly be the great-grandfather, if his grandson was named
Ephraim just after his death in 1175, who then died young (25), leaving
behind a newborn to carry his name as Ephraim ben Ephraim.

mtDNA? #dna

Helen Gardner
 

Hi all.

At age 77, none of my parents' generation are alive now, and of those
of my generation still with us, virtually all have declined to do a
DNA test through various fears of one kind and another (mostly to do
with medical findings or on-selling of results, and even though I have
told them repeatedly that genetic DNA testing such as FTDNA doesn't
collect medical information, and FTDNA does not on-sell results they
remain unconvinced and uncooperative). Sigh! Oh well.

Anyway, I had my autosomal DNA done some years ago and as I read more
about it, I'm thinking that mtDNA might be of some help in the
absence of DNA >from most other relatives.

Is it likely to be worth doing, and who would you recommend: FTDNA,
who did my autosomal test, or Ancestry so I could get on to their new
super collection of data? Am I likely to get anything out of Ancestry
that I can't get >from GEDmatch?

Regards
