Korytnica #ukraine

Mendel Horowitz
 

I am interested in locating any prewar documents or photographs from Korytnica (Ukrainian: Коритниця ) - a village in Ukraine in the Volodymyr/Volyn region. The village is situated on the Bug River, opposite the Polish Bereżnica. My family descends from the Rubinstein, Wagman, and Kleiner families.
 
Thank you,
Mendel Horowitz

Jena in Ritschenwalde - Re: Compound last names from Detmold, Lippe Germany #germany

Corinna Woehrl (nee Goslar)
 

Hello Lew and Listreaders,
 
You probably won't find the surname Jena in Ritschenwalde before 1840, since in Posen the obligatory adoption of surnames for Jews was only introduced in 1833.
 
It is very unlikely, that the bearers of the name in Detmold/Westphalia should be related to those in Ritschenwalde. In almost every larger Jewish community, there will have been people with the name Jena, just as the surnames Berlin/er, Hamburg/er, Frankfurt/er, or others are common (e.g., also my maiden name Goslar). Simply because former places of origin were chosen as family names when the name was adopted.
 
For further research, I would first search the Polish Archival platform:
https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/en/wyszukiwarka?p_p_id=Result&p_p_lifecycle=0&p_p_state=normal&p_p_mode=view&_Result_delta=20&_Result_resetCur=false&_Result_cur=2
 
If the link fails to work, try:
https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/en/strona_glowna 
and enter 'Ryczywól' as the search term and select 'scans only'.
 
If in doubt, I would write to the regional polish archive to see if they have any specific records. There are only fractions of archival records online in Poland and Germany, others will have to be searched locally.
 
It is essential first to orientate yourself on the facts and the known regions, otherwise, the search will very quickly lead you astray.
 
On the following German website of the non-profit association 'compgen.de' the name Jena in Ritschenwalde can be found
https://ofb.genealogy.net/namelist.php?ofb=juden_nw&ort=Ritschenwalde&e=geburt&sort_by=name&lang=de
 
Here is (in German - perhaps read with google-translate) information about the Jewish community in Ritschenwalde
https://www.xn--jdische-gemeinden-22b.de/index.php/gemeinden/p-r/2254-ritschenwalde-posen
 
Incidentally, it was very common after the name adoption that the previous patronymic naming was retained for the first names, i.e. the patronymic became the middle name. 
It also became customary over time to choose a more "German" first name for the children and a second more traditionally Jewish one, which was perhaps only noted in the lists of the Jewish community.
 
I sincerely hope that one of the tips is helpful.
Good luck with your further search

The Moroccan Jews of Cabo Verde - Preservation of Memory #events #sephardic

contact@...
 

Many Sephardic Jewish families migrated to Cape Verde from Morocco and Gibraltar in the mid-19th century. Carol Castiel learned about this history while working at the Africa-America Institute. Many of her grantees came from Jewish families such as Levy, Benchimol, Wahnon, and Anahory. Inspired by her students to learn more about Cabo Verde’s connection to the Jewish world, Carol travelled there in the early 1990s and joined forces with Januário Nascimento (Auday family of Tangier) who was pressing for the restoration and preservation of the country’s small Sephardic burial grounds. The Cape Verde Jewish Heritage Project was established in 2007 to honor the memory and document the contributions of the Sephardic Jews of Cabo Verde.

 

Carol Castiel is Director of Current Affairs Programming at the Voice of America. She hosts and produces a newsmaker interview programme, Press Conference USA, and a discussion programme, Encounter. Carol also oversees the production of Issues in the News, Voice of America’s roundup of the week’s top stories. She holds an M.A. degree in International Affairs from the University of Pittsburgh and is proficient in French and Portuguese. Before joining the VOA in 1999, Carol previously worked as a consultant/freelance journalist. She was also a contributing editor to the London-based West Africa Magazine. From 1984 to 1992, she managed scholarship programs for Portuguese-speaking Africa at the Africa-America Institute (AAI) in New York City.

Josh Lipson got more precise on sample I13866 and determined that it is in the Y-DNA haplogroup J-ZS2622.

Leo Cooper thinks it is likely Judean/Israelite in origin.

Synagogue "Linath Hazedeck" Frankfurt a.M. (1920-1939) #germany

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group,
I am interested in information, photos, testimonies, anything about a synagogue by the name "Linath Hazedeck" that operated in Frankfurt (Langestrasse 38) in the interwar years and burnt and destroyed in Kristallnacht. 

This synagogue was operated by a family member.

Thank you - Yaron Wolfsthal, Israel


Pope Orders Online Release of WWII-era Pius XII Jewish files #announcements #general #holocaust

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

Pope Francis has ordered the online publication of 170 volumes of its Jewish files from the recently opened Pope Pius XII archives, the Vatican announced 23 June, 2022, amid renewed debate about the legacy of its World War II-era pope.

 

The documentation contains 2,700 files of requests for Vatican help from Jewish groups and families, many of them baptized Catholics, so not actually practicing Jews anymore. The files were held in the Secretariat of State’s archives and contain requests for papal intervention to avoid Nazi deportation, to obtain liberation from concentration camps or help finding family members.

 

The online publication of the files comes amid renewed debate about Pius’ legacy following the 2020 opening to scholars of his archives, of which the “Jews” files are but a small part. The Vatican has long defended Pius against criticism from some Jewish groups that he remained silent in the face of the Holocaust, saying he used quiet diplomacy to save lives.

 

The Vatican’s foreign minister Paul Gallagher said it was hoped that the digital release of the “Jews” files would help scholars with research, but also descendants of those who had requested Vatican help, to “find traces of their loved ones from any part of the world.”

 

“The requests would arrive at the Secretariat of State, where diplomatic channels would try to provide all the help possible, taking into account the complexity of the political situation in the global context,” Gallagher wrote.

 

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David Kertzer, suggests that the people the Vatican was most concerned about saving were Jews who had converted to Catholicism, the offspring of Catholic-Jewish mixed marriages or otherwise related to Catholics.

Moshe, the DNA extractions were performed from teeth. The rabbis' requirements included that the teeth were already detached, that the digging up of the graves wasn't done for the purpose of DNA analysis, and that the bodies be subsequently reburied. There are believed to be additional Jews buried in an extension of the cemetery beyond a fence (if i remember) and those were never dug up because they were beyond the construction zone so we can only guess at their DNA. But the existing DNA samples are plentiful enough and, as Adam Cherson is showing, can probably be used to study the genealogical kinship on particular lineages of rabbis where the matches are close.

Hi Adam, this is fascinating. thanks for sharing!

Where can I learn more about the halakhic loophole? I couldn’t find it on the Twitter thread, and I think there may be others who are interested as well.

I’m also curious about the process of extracting this DNA from such an old sample.

Thanks!

Kevin,

Thanks. Leo Cooper's read doesn't move the needle much at all. What a pity...

Here is a revised chart based on the connection of I13865 with the Maharam of Rothenburg (everything very tentative).

NB: The EU group includes y uniparentals T1a1a, J1a, and E1b1. I wonder how this would affect interpretation of that cluster's evolution.

Re: New Jewish DNA From 14th Century Erfurt #sephardic #dna #germany

Adam,
Yes. Leo Cooper says his SNP analysis of that sample you asked about (I13866) places it within haplogroup J-Z2215.

Re: New Jewish DNA From 14th Century Erfurt #sephardic #dna #germany

Adam Cherson
 

As I understand your analysis, you interpret the Erfurt EU group as having some Khazar ancestry via Knaanic populations. This must be then one of the main hypotheses going forward. I look forward to a paper on this someday (not by me!).

I wonder if you can dig up any insight on sample I13866 (y-called as J1a), appearing in the EU cluster. Is there a way to look at the SNPs in the BAM file for this sample to see if that y classification can be narrowed down a little?

Compound last names from Detmold, Lippe Germany #germany

LMEIXLER@...
 

I am researching the last name "Jena" of my maternal Great Grandfather.  He immigrated from Ritschenwalde, Prussia [ Noe Ryczywo'l Poland].  There doesn't seem 
to be any records there of a Jena family earlier than about 1840s.  The only other Jena families that I could located were from Detmold, in Germany, but some of the last names were Jena and others were Michaelis Jena.  Does anyone have any thoughts on why some people would have just Jena and others Michaelis Jena in the same family?

    For example
Joseph Michaelis Jena Kornhändler und Particulierer   1788-1867 • LC3Z-K30
Marriage: 11 Nov 1818    Detmold, Lippe, Deutschland
Brendel Gerson Treuenfels   1800-Deceased • LC3Z-KDG
     ^ Children (6)
Herman Michaels Jena Kaufmann und Rent...   1825-Deceased • LC3Z-KST
Hannchen Jena   1827-Deceased • LC3Z-2NC
Särchen or Järchen Jena   1830-Deceased • LC3Z-2NN
Jacob Joseph Michaels Jena Kaufmann   1833-Deceased • LC3Z-K3C
Rika Michaelis Jena   1836-Deceased • LC3Z-2J0
Auguste Michaelis Jena   1840-Deceased •
                   LC3Z-2JK
