Seeking family of Yehuda and Nehama YUDOVITCH in Israel formerly YUDELEVICH from Lithuania #israel

Susan Goldsmith
 

Dear JewishGen,
 
I am seeking the children and grandchildren of Yehuda and Nehama POPEL YUDOVITCH (YUDELEVICH) in Israel, possibly in the Haifa area.  Our family had thought that our cousin Yehuda had perished with his mother Leia Malke GOLDSHMIDT Yudelevich and siblings in the Shoah.  I just saw a photo of Yehuda and information that he and his family lived in  Binyamina, Hadera, Haifa, Israel where he died in about 1984-1985.  It would mean so much to have contact with his family.  Please feel free to give my email, jcwsmg@....
 
Thank you,
Susan Goldsmith

I'm currently using Ancestry, My Heritage and also GEDmatch as a comparison site, can anyone suggest any others, please? I love the tools on GEDmatch and comparing the Ancient DNA, but match-wise I don't appear to be finding matches above 55cm and largest segment 19.5, I'm gathering not everybody knows about this one? How does everybody get on with this one?

Re: Post-WWII Records for Ufa #records #russia

mvayser@...
 

Jenny,
In the Soviet Union all metrical records were handed over to the civil authorities (Registry office - ZAGS in Russia, RAGS in Ukraine, etc) around 1920. All registrations after that time were recorded in that office using their standard forms for births, marriages, divorces, and deaths. After a certain number of years these records are turned over to the city or district archives.  Birth records for 1920 are definitely no longer in the Registry office, which is why I suggested to contact the city archive.  Naturally, there are privacy laws involved with these types of records and, hopefully, you can obtain the information for an event that took place 100 years ago.

Barbara Douglas
 

I’m trying to trace my grandfathers ancestors.  i believe the name had been changed. 
why is BLUM such a common name?   growing up
in michigan there weren’t that many, but in NYC There are a million.  i’ve not be able to find his naturalization papers, but his records show he was was Satanov/Sataniv.  His grave is also in a section with that city designation.  Any recommendation as to how i might find his original surname?

"Russcheitz": is it Russocice and Russocice-Wladyslawow? Does anyone else have ancestors from here? #unitedkingdom #poland

Judy Bowman
 

For UK and POLAND researchers: 

I have been researching my Baumgarten ancestors, most of whom changed their surname to Bowman. Jacob was my great-great grandfather.  His son, Israel, was my great grandfather.  He was born in "Wladyslawow, Poland" in 1880 and emigrated to Port Talbot, Wales, UK.  He eventually came to Bridgeport, CT and settled in the US.   He was the youngest of 16 children, by 2 different mothers.    His brother or half-brother Harris Bowman, says he himself was born in "Russcheitz, Russia/Poland" in 1860.  In my research on Israel Bowman, I have determined that he and his brother came from Russocice-Wladyslawow.    Does anyone else have have "Russcheitz" or "Russocice" in their background?

Bryan Sykes Dies, Pioneer in Informing People About Their Ancestry #dna

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Bryan Sykes was an Oxford geneticist.  A pioneer in realizing the possibility of using mitochondrial DNA to reveal a person’s genetic history died at age 73, in Edinburgh on December 10.  He was a researcher specializing in inherited bone diseases who in the late 1980s was drawn into the field of ancient DNA—that which passes from mother to child which could b traced the deep origins of human populations. Dr. Sykes had a hunch that mitochondrial DNA, which passes largely intact from mother to child, could be used to trace the deep origins of human populations. He studied hamsters to prove his hypothesis. He became one of Britain’s’ best-known scientists, and through his books and TV appearances gave millions of people access to their distant pasts.

 

His book The Seven Daughters of Eve published in 2001 resulted in readers learning that most modern Europeans can trace their roots to one of seven women who lived from 10,000 to 45,000 years ago and in turn descended from African-born Eve. He turned this book success to a direct-to consumer genetic testing service Oxford Ancestors.

You need to look at the ScotlandsPeople website for Scottish BMD and Census records including the 1939 Register (this is the sister website to Findmypast which deals with England and Wales).

Help with Translating Birth Record - German/Romanian? #translation

Sarit Klein
 

Hello. Hoping for some help translating what I believe is a birth record of my grandfather, Wilhelm Schimmel. The record is a bit hard to read.  Can anyone translate the column titles (columns 1-12) and/or any of the responses in the first line (line 151) for those columns? 
Thanks in advance for the help!

Re: Chelmno record of Bajla Fuks born 1923, transport june 28, 1944 #holocaust

sharonrf18@...
 

I also have many family members that were in the Lodz Ghetto that “disappeared”. In general, I’ve found records at the US Holocaust Museum’s website but not necessarily complete records for all of them. Sometimes I’ve seen in address registrations in the “comments” column that someone died or was deported with a date. I’m not sure I’ve seen an actual transport list. From my understanding, Chelmno was strictly an extermination camp and no one was truly “detained” but murdered upon arrival. Someone else in this discussion group may know more.
