A little while ago I was calling for the daughter of my first cousin at
her place of work. and, yes, I did say that I was her aunt. She was
puzzled at the time, as she knew her mother's ony sibling lived abroad,
but in the context, the complications of the relationship were
really unimportant.

Re: Restoration of German Citizenship #germany

I also did it a few years ago. It is a relatively simple process. Advantages: You can live (and work) anywhere in the EU. You can vote (if you consider this to be an advantage).
Disadvantages: none. No taxes, unless you live in Germany (I do, so I pay taxes in Germany and in the US, but there is a treaty).

Amendment:
By the way, it's not only the translations that are problematic, it's whatever happened in the digitalization process; in this case, even the Hebrew has Naftali as the daughter.

Yad Vashem lets you submit corrections to those errors - I've done that now.

Bottom line: if a POT is submitted in a language you don't know -- have it translated from the scan by a human being who knows that language - and submit correction to Yad Vashem, or ask the translator to do so.

June,

The first cousin of a parent would be a first cousin once removed ("1C1R")  That 1C1R's child would be a first cousin twice removed ("1C2R").  And so on.

That said, often the technical formalities are disregarded.  Personal examples:  When I was growing up, we all referred to my grandfather's first cousin as "Aunt Celia," notwithstanding that to me she was a 1C2R.  And even today, the ex-wife of a son (albeit by adoption) of my mother's first cousin refers to herself as my mom's "cousin."

I am attempting to find the parents, siblings and other family members of my great grandfather Leivik>Louis, Nabatov>Nabatoff and great grandmother Youdes>Dora, Wolfson Nabatoff, who emigrated from Belarus to the US in 1904. Has anyone else searched or found members of this family?

Thank you

Never trust Yad Vashem's automatic translations.  They are a mess for many - at times unavoidable - reasons, and Carol Hoffman's above quote is a great example of why.

Naftali is a male's name.
There is absolutely no doubt that he is described in handwritten Hebrew as the victim's son.

And yet, the translation from Yad Vasheme has made him a "daughter" - wrong, wrong, wrong!

And I know from personal contact with Yad Vashem staff that they have a special problem with relationship translation.

Always ask for another translation.

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla speaks about his Thessaloniki roots and his parents' Holocaust experiences #holocaust

Renee Steinig
 

In an interview at New York's Museum of Jewish Heritage last month,
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla discussed his family's roots in Thessaloniki
(Salonika), Greece, where he was born and raised. He also related in
powerful detail the story of his parents, Mois and Sara, who were
among the few Jews in that city to survive the Holocaust. Dr. Bourla
was interviewed by Robert Krulwich, a science correspondent for NPR
and former co-host of the show Radiolab.

The one-hour interview is now available on YouTube --

In fact, the 1857 census records (unindexed) are available online through Family Search.  They're organized by house number, but it's confusing because similar number sequences appear in different volumes, and, as a result, I had to search through multiple volumes even though I knew the relevant house number.  Here's a link:  https://www.familysearch.org/records/images/search-results?page=1&place=3460695&endDate=1857&startDate=1857&lifeEvent=105057.

Good afternoon,

Your parent's first cousin would be your 1st cousin once removed. IF your parent's 1st cousin had a child/children, that child/children would be your 2nd cousin.

Regards,

Kathleen Shepard

watching TV I noticed that someone referred to the first cousin of his
father as his uncle. If that if correct in my situation it would

DNA suggests that I have many 2nd cousins who appear to share a great
grandfather with me. New research suggests this isn't possible and
that these are two separate people who were both named after their
common grandfather, but are sons of different fathers. That would make
them 1st cousins. If so, would the son of one cousin consider himself
to be a nephew of the other 1st cousin? If true it would explain some
tree discrepancies I have been unable to resolve.

Re: Restoration of German Citizenship #germany

JoAnne Goldberg
 

I am only familiar with the process for US citizens...

A German Supreme Court decision last May opened citizenship restoration to many more people. One of my friends, who had applied years earlier, was able to readily complete the process after that decision.  I've submitted all the paperwork for myself and my son, and am now waiting to get an appointment at the local consulate.

The United States website/UI is not the greatest, but I found a helpful intern at my consulate, plus the fact that my mother can read/write German enabled me to understand what they wanted.

Advantages: German citizenship gives you access to the EU, helpful if you're thinking of living/working there for a period of time. If you are a resident, you will have to pay those taxes, and of course the US always wants its cut. The arm of the IRS is long.

I recently heard that Germany has a "Restoration of German Citizenship" project, which would reinstate (dual) German citizenship to Americans who were former German citizens (and their descendants) who were deprived of their German citizenship due to persecution on political, racial or religious grounds between January 30, 1933 and May 8, 1945. Does anyone have any insights on this program and thoughts on potential benefits (access to research materials?) or detriments (possible taxes?)?

I am in London, not the USA - but the basis is the same

I have had my German Nationality restored under this Process.   Very simple, just contact a German consulate - they will guide you.

I did so not because I wanted it,   Rather to enable my children to work in Europe after the idiotic exodus of the UK from Europe - or Brexit as it became known.

DRUCKERs of Kyiv, Ukraine (Kiev) to rabbinic line. #rabbinic

Alison Drucker
 



Hi, I have no previous experience researching rabbinic line; hoping for help.
   My surname is DRUCKER, shared by my paternal grandfather, who
always said he was from a rabbinic line.  (More about him below). So
far I have come across 2 possible leads.
    First, an article from Pittsburgh about a Sol DRUCKER descriged as
"the son of Rabbi Lazarus DRUCKER and Sarah DRUCKER, a direct lineal
descendant of Reb. Chaim VOLOZHINER, the founder of the VOLOZHINER
Yeshivah."  Any way to connect my grandfather to that line?
    Second, at the surname database of the Museum of the Jewish People
(now ANU) in Tel Aviv, the entry on DRUCKER mentions a 19th C.
Galician scholar (but does NOT say rabbi) named Markus (Mordechai)
DRUCKER.  With help of Jewish Gen, I learned of a 1934 book with a bio
of him and was able to get that bio from a library in Germany.  it
said he was born in Stryy, Ukraine (Stryj in 1934) on Jan. 4, 1854
under the name Mordechai Ben Yehuda Leibush DRUCKER; he was a Talmudic
scholar who had books published in Lviv, Ukraine (Lvov) around 1904
and was still alive in 1934.
     My paternal grandfather was Harry DRUCKER, born in Kyiv, Ukraine
(Kiev) around 1880 to father Haskel.  He was estranged from his family
and I know very little about him before he married Anna ALTERMAN after
he came to the U.S.  He came sometime between 1897 and 1905 and may
have spent years in Canada before entering the U.S.  So far, I have
not been able to locate any naturalization papers for him, which might
lead to more info.
     Thanks for any suggestions.

Online information connecting Padua family and Luzzatto family #general

Guy <guy.f.levin@...>
 

Is there a resource online or can someone direct me to information that shows the connection between the Padua family and the Luzzatto family? 

I know there is a monumental work that has been published with all of the descendants of the Maharam Padua, but I do not have access to that at the moment.

Be well.
