Town Name in Latvia #latvia

rklegon@...
 

I am doing some research on part of my family that comes from Latvia.  I've found a passenger list (1912) that has the town name written as Welisny and/or Weliony.  I'm curious if anyone may know what town this may be?  Thanks!

The Becker's Email
 

Consider ordering your father's application for a social security number.  Also your grandparents if they had one.  The application asked for the place of birth of the applicant and the applicant's parents.  The application may have the town.   Order the original application, not the extract.

Re: Traveling Great Grandmother #general

Could she have been working for some family that was on the same ship?  The fact that she apparently returned to England fairly soon after arriving in the states suggested this possibility.  I know that pregnant women and even just married women often did not work outside the family at the time, but she may have been an exception.  If the birth was premature, that would explain why her pregnancy did not show at the time.

JGASGP Meeting #announcements

Marilyn Golden
 

Date:  Sunday, January 2, 2022

Time: 1:00 PM check in, chat, and schmooze (Optional)

Official program starts promptly at 1:30

Speaker:  Speaker: Gil Bardige, Experienced Genealogist and Speaker

Topic:  Help!  I just got my Autosomal DNA Results and I'm Confused"

 

Gil Bardige has been a genealogist for over 40 years, with 14 years of experience in DNA. He has spoken at many JGS as well as at IAJGS. You may have heard him speak locally or assisted you at mentoring sessions. He has tested at all 4 major companies and is a Project Administrator or Co-Admin at FTDNA for 3 projects including Jewish R1b.
Prior to retirement, Gil was Business Development Executive for Trane, traveling nationally for nearly 12 years making presentations to Fortune 250 corporations. Gil is high-energy, humorous, speaks clearly & makes sure that the audience participates.

 

Topic: Help!  I just got my Autosomal DNA Results and I'm Confused"

 

This presentation will provide specific guidance on how to use DNA/Genetic Genealogy as an effective tool in your genealogy tool belt. Gil will provide examples from the four major DNA testing companies to clarify ethnicity estimates and give a detailed review of what matches mean at each company. He will outline the recommended steps to take for prioritizing and contacting your DNA matches. The end goal is to have your match help with your family tree and, hopefully, provide information, photographs, documents, stories, etc., that you don't already have. Gil will review the DNA tests available, what you can expect from the results, and who should test. At the end of the presentation, you will be able to say, "Now I get it...I know what to do."  This is for beginners and people who tested and are just overwhelmed and frustrated.


If you have DNA results and don't know what to do, GIL is the one to listen too! He will walk you through the process to analyze your results. 

This meeting is for members only.  All members joining now will receive membership through December 31, 2022.
We are continuing virtual meetings until further notice! 
Check our website for complete membership info., benefits, and future programming. www.jgasgp.org.
Non-members have access to our comprehensive beginner’s guide.  Contact me prior to the meeting with any questions.
I need to be aware if you join prior the morning of the meeting to send you the link. Meetings are recorded for members only.

Could she conceal the pregnancy from the immigration inspectors?   Would admit her if they knew she was pregnant (women travelling alone generally weren't admitted until someone came to claim them, even when they weren't pregnant)?

If the answer to both questions is no, then you've confused the records of two different women, perhaps with the same name.

If she was able to conceal the pregnancy shortly before the birth, that suggests it was a premature birth.  But if it wasn't, then she was already pregnant when she got married, and the reason for travel might have been part of an effort to conceal the pregnancy from her husband or his family.

Re: Kronenberg and Chemerinsky #names

Stefani Elkort Twyford
 

For those discussing this Kronenberg thread, I am the administrator of the Kronenberg surname project on FamilyTreeDNA. If you are a Kronenberg, please join our group.

What I have learned is that there are some distinct lines around Poland. My Kronenberg line came from Koden, up on the current border of Belarus near Brest. There are numerous branches from Koden and Brest and all have similar given name patterns. There is another distinct line from Warsaw and another line from the Slawatycze area. I have all of these lines drawn out on my Ancestry.com tree in order to see if I can find a thread between the two. So far, with the FTDNA group, I have identified two distinct Y male lines but everyone in every group seems to have an autosomal relationship. Please contact me directly if I can be of some help.

Thank you Steve for this first attempt, I'm afraid the text uses the Jewish and German expressions of the time.

Rabbi Dov Berisch SPIRA of Bardejov #rabbinic

Ben Weinstock
 

Dear group,

I recently discovered my direct descent from Rabbi Dov Berisch SPIRA, who was the first rabbi of Bardejov. According to the Bardejov yizkor book, he was rabbi there for only a brief period of time. His wife was named Zysel. They had a daughter Blume, born in 1805, who married Abraham GRUNSHPAN of Wisnicz Nowy.

I assume Rabbi SPIRA lived c. 1785 -c. 1830, as a grandson born in 1833 was named for him.

Are there any SPIRA experts who can connect this Rabbi SPIRA to the known SPIRA genealogies?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Re: Can I use the given name Gerson to trace family members? #names

jbonline1111@...
 

Have you searched your grandparents' names in Austria?  That might give you a clue to the place where your father was born.  You might also find that information in his immigration papers, such as naturalization documents.  You didn't mention when they emigrated and to what country, which might give a clue about the anglicization of your father's name.  

Another possibility, though perhaps less likely in this particular case, is that the baby's name was changed due to illness. A lot of superstitious people would change the baby's name to evade the Angel of Death.  We think that's why my father's name was changed from Louis in 1917, when he was born, to Lawrence by the 1920 census. As my grandparents died very young, no one ever asked them.

Re: I am looking for birth and marriage records from Frankfurt Germany 1903-1929 #germany

In Darmstadt Hesse, is there access to the birth records for 1903 and the marriage records for 1929?
 
Because I suspect my grandmother was born and married there, not in Frankfurt.
