Re: Looking for descendants of Alfred MENDEL from New York #usa

KAREN SAUNDERS
 


Hello. I believe Alfred Mendel worked with/for my grandfather Hans Adalbert Frank - furrier in Berlin and Leipzig. Could it be the same petson? Also with your surname would you be related to Sophie Horowitz from Leipzig?

Re: Immigration from Poland to England #unitedkingdom

Ancestry.co.uk does  have naturalisation records, which often give the names of parents and more exact places of birth. However, naturalisation was an expensive process until the middle of the 20th century. If family members were still in England at that time,  the 1939 Registration, a very informative proto-census is available on Ancestry.co.uk in the Card Catalogue if you dig deep anough. It is more easily found on FindmyPast. Make a point of looking at the original manuscript, not the index.
Children in this census are usually blacked out, but later married names of young women and name-alterations were added to the documents during the wartime years.

You often see people named Rochel Leah. Rivka Leah is not particularly common, but not impossible. (Leah often becomes Lena.)

Schartmann-Sallmann family #germany

Catherine Claisse <catherine.claisse@...>
 

Hello I found I have ancestors in Germany, in Rott, Roetgen, North Rhine Westphalia. My ancestor's name was:

Johannes Jacob SCHARTMANN also found as Jois or Joes SCHARTMANN. He died in Rott,Roetgen,North Rhine Westphalia,GERMANY on the 4th of July Rott,Roetgen,North Rhine Westphalia,GERMANY. He got married with Maria Magdalena SCHWEITZER on the 29th of april 1795, same locatio, who died on the 7th of june 1827, same place. They got a son who was christened, Willem Jan, on the 26th of may 1796. Willem is found as SALLMANN/SALLMAN as well. He moved to NETHERLANDS first, where he got married to Sophia Steins, and then to Belgium to work. His descendance in Belgium is found as SCHARTMANN and SALLMANN.
I'm looking for ideas on how to find whether my ancestor's German family was Jewish and how to get more information on them.
Is there anyone who could help me? Thanks

Catherine Claisse, Florence italy

This helped us to find something we've been searching for over a long period of time, a half sibling that we always knew existed but sadly perished with his mom and another sibling at the hands of Nazis.  
 
Thank you SO much for this translation.

Greetings Debbie,

You might like to try this: Poor Jews Temporary Shelter Database

http://www.jewishroots.uct.ac.za/Shelter.aspx

We managed to find what we believe to be the record of our great grandfathers' arrival in the UK from Poland in 1902 including the name of the ship he came on. I say believe because all the details fit except that there was most probably a transcription error from the original handwritten document to the database. His surname was Zmidek but on the database its Lmidek. We are waiting to get access to the original document at the London Metropolitan Archives to confirm the error. Alas, like so many places its closed because of the Covid so we wait patiently.   Good luck with your search.

The Wadowice Translations Fund has been set up and it is now listed at:

 

https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

 

Wadowice is in Poland near Krakow and once in Austria-Hungary/Western Galicia.


Once we have at least $500 in the fund, we can engage a translator for this project.


Thanks for your consideration.

UK Naturalisation records from about the 1880s up to 1916 are available on Ancestry.co.uk.

It depended where someone lived if they became naturalised, as there were local quotas. Three of my four great grandfathers naturalised in the 1890's after having been in the UK for 20 to 25 years.The 4th in Manchester joined a Naturalisation Society in Manchester with the aim of winning a lottery for Naturalisation as it was expensive. He never won the lottery, and so never bothered to naturalise. It was then about £5 equivalent to £60 today. One of my Hull ancestors failed twice in Hull and then succeeded a 3rd time in Grimsby as he had a police record due to bankruptcy. 

I wrote an article on this a few years ago in Shemot, the journal of the Jewish Gen society of GB.

Re: Ashkenazim with Oriental eyes #general

koshka5@...
 

My maternal great-grandmother was born around 1890 in Kolyshki, a small village in Vitebsk, Belarus.  She had Oriental eyes and high cheekbones as did my grandmother and a couple of her siblings.  My mother and youngest sibling both have Oriental eyes.  My mother thought there may have been some Mongolian genes, but her DNA test came back as 100% European Jewish.

For what it's worth the epicanthic fold is also present in Hispanics and people with Down Syndrome.

Before attributing an epicanthic fold to a 12th century ancestor, it would be helpful to read the posts in the thread Autosomal Analysis Question.
On average, any one ancestor’s contribution to your DNA is halved for every generation further back from you that ancestor is.   An ancestor living in the 12th century, on average, would be expected to contribute about one billionth or less of your DNA.  Endogamy could result in more DNA than that making its way to you, but quantifying it is impossible.  

On balance it would be far more plausible to find a recent Asian ancestor to explain the introgression of genes for the epicanthic fold into your lineage than one 12th century ancestor.
