Re: Bruchsteiner, Paris, 1900s #france

grayps@...
 

I wonder if Andre could find any information on my cousin, Abraham Pelete (also spelled Pailet) and Adele Kalowski (also transcribed as Kalovvski or Kalorvski) for whom I found a marriage bann dated 1/2/1876 and a second marriage bann dated 1/2/1881, both in Paris (4ieme).
I would greatly appreciate any help or additional information prior to their emigration to the U.S.A. in February 1883.
Thank you.

death notice and or obituary #usa

Steve Pickoltz
 

Facts--- My aunt Rose Bernstein (maiden name), age 22, married Edward McMahon, age 37,  on July 20, 1927 in Manhattan, NYC, NY.  She was born in NYC but did live in Binghamton, NY.  She may have lived in NYC at the time of her marriage.  Edward was living in NYC.  He died on Dec 9, 1927, in NYC (Manhattan).  This was about 4 months after his marriage.  
 
According to the death cert #27504, he was in real estate and lived at 6 West 107th St, NYC.  The cause of death was a car accident due to brain injuries as well as other damages.
 
However this cert give his last name as McMann not McMahon.
 
What I would like to find if possible is a death notice or obituary notice for him, or maybe a newspaper article about the accident.  It could be in a NYC newspaper or maybe in a Binghamton paper where his wife was from.
 
Thanks.

Re: I wish to hire a DNA analyst to interpret the results of a Big Y-700 FTDNA Sample #dna

You can get advice about interpreting a Y DNA kit from the Avotaynu DNA Project team.

In order to do this, Log into the Y DNA kit
Hover the curson on GROUP PROJECTS in the top menu bar
A menu dropdown box should appear, click on JOIN A PROJECT
Type AVOTAYNU in the Search by Surname block
Join the project

If you go to the website for the project at:
Avotaynu DNA Project (avotaynuonline.com)
you will see that there is an email address to contact with questions about your match.

As you have indicated that you have a Big Y 700 test, they should be glad to point you in the right direction!  Adam Brown has given a number of lectures about results from their work that are fascinating.  You can see some of them by searching YouTube for "Adam Brown DNA".

Hi Geoffrey,
I use all Apple computers and I bought the RootsMagic program. It froze and gave me repeated problems. Customer service was useless. I then bought MacFamily Tree and have not had any issues. I can enter DNA results, add categories and it does integrate with FamilySearch and tells you if it found records and gives you the option of reviewing and adding them.
Their customer service is good and price was not expensive and they have add ons like a mobile version so others can use it simultaneously (I don't need that as I am the only one using my tree).
It is quite a robust program that I was able to use without reading the downloadable instruction book but I did use it for reference a few times. I hate reading instructions so I learn as I go and have been fine. Only glitch I found was entering a Religious name (hebrew first name) it just doesn't take it under that category so I just enter it under "additional names/name variation". 
Overall I am very happy with it and their upgrade from v8 to v9 was good and inexpensive. They do have a free trial version.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #yizkorbooks #belarus #JewishGenUpdates

Bruce Drake
 

Conflict between the older and younger generations is nothing new, and that includes the Jewish communities in the shtetls. But in my readings of Yizkor book accounts, these seemed to grow sharper in the early 1900s. Often this had to do with the involvement of many younger Jews in social action organizations like the Bund or the Zionist groups that had sprung up and were disdained by many older and more traditional Jews.
 
But this story in the Yizkor book of Mogilev (Mahilyow) in Belarus by the Yiddish writer and playwright David Pinsky, who was born there, looks at the growing cultural gulfs between young and old in a much more personal way. The first paragraph in “Altinke – Cute old one” sets the scene.
 
“The young people are bored to sit with the old and hear their ear ripping chant, the entire strange thing gnawing and disturbing, and they have – with the exception of a few young people, that are still left here – gathered in another room. There they breathed freely, smoked their cigarettes, conducted their conversations and felt far from the old.”
 
The central character in the story — “old grey Reb Zelig, small, settled, broad shouldered and joyful Jew, with a Chassidic essence” — bemoans this state of affairs and makes an energetic effort to bridge the barriers of age.
 
An introduction to the chapter describes the empathy with which Pinsky writes about an older generation that “goes by in front of the readers’ eyes, like a sunset, yet leaves over after itself something of a longing. The reader himself does not know, if it is good that the generation is going away or if it is bad…”

Re: Ancestry’s new rules #general

I've only deleted private photos, and some of those were copied by
others. I'm not going to waste my time chasing after strangers to get
them to remove them, which they probably won't do anyway. Everything
else on my Ancestry tree is public record. Why delete it? It's helped
me find a lot of relatives and even ones I never knew existed. It's
been a blessing.

Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

Re: I wish to hire a DNA analyst to interpret the results of a Big Y-700 FTDNA Sample #dna

Jeffrey Herrmann
 

It is sad that FTDNA does not explain their Big Y-700 in plain language, forcing customers to hire experts to interpret the results.  FTDNA’s “Big Y-700 White Paper” offers these gems of technospeak to its customers:
”Very few nucleotides are spanned by 200 fragments, and so the fraction of the target covered at that depth is low as well.”
”Fragments that added depth to already confidently called regions in Big Y span new regions of chrY in Big Y-700.”
”The total number of SNPs called in a bin is shown by the dotted black trace which uses the log scale on the right-hand axis.”
”We used BY101* sample … as an outgroup to eliminate all variants at the Bay101 level and above.”
Does anyone find this helpful in making sense of their Big Y-700 results?
Is there a plain language guide to understanding Big Y-700 test results without the aid of the priestly class of paid experts?

Putnok, Hungary -- cemetery photos #hungary

Tamas Fleischer
 

For those interested in Putnok and environ (Borsod, Gomor, Abauj counties).
In the last month, I've made photos of all the tombs in the Putnok Jewish cemetery. The cemetery was restored and fenced in the nineties, but there was a vandal attack against this cemetery in 2012 when 57 tombs, about a quarter of all was broken or demolished. Since that time the cemetery is more or less in the same state. 
 
You can see the cemetery at the BillionGraves site under the name 'Putnok Jewish cemetery' https://hu.billiongraves.international/cemetery/Putnok-Jewish-cemetery/325090/volunteer  To see each grave and to make corrections in the information red from the graves, you may need a free registration too. 
 
Hope you can have access to the pictures

Is this a male or female name? 
My thought is that it's not so far off from the two male names Simcha and Zusha. If this was someone who had both as first and middle names it's possible that somehow it was mistakenly combined into one name.

Bruchsteiner, Paris, 1900s #france

Lee Jaffe
 

A cousin has asked for my help looking for information about a couple connected to the other side of his family. He supplied a "Bon Souvenir" photo inscribed on the back "Arthur Rachel Bruchsteiner, 28 juilliet 1907" I managed to find the couples' 1905 French marriage record and Rachel Brahinsky's 1882 French birth record, both through Ancestry. According to the marriage record, Arthur was born in Budapest in 1878. But nothing else. He's interested in knowing what happened to them after 1907. I've worked my way though all the sources I could think of and a few – i.e., Holocaust databases – I'm less familiar with. Any suggestions?

I have one very similar. I was told it was most likely made between 1920 and 1930.  The hair style is the key--marcelled waves and a short bob--very Roaring 20s.  the fur boa around her neck also is from that era.
