JewishGen Course Announcement - Sharing Your Stories – Writing Short Family Narratives – July 2022 #announcements #education #JewishGenUpdates

Marion Werle
 

You’ve been working on your family history for years. Doing a complete family history can be overwhelming, so let’s start by writing a short family narrative. Your report can focus on an individual, a family story, your ancestral town, an immigration experience, a family photo, or other topic of your choosing. The objective of this class is to provide the opportunity to write a report of limited scope that you can complete within a short timeframe. The course will offer tips on how to add interest to your chosen story, using context and description, and will cover the mechanics of writing and genealogical best practices to create an effective report. This is a four-week class. The first week will be used to assist you plan and bring focus your story. Please have a topic in mind prior to registration, and be sure that your supporting research is as complete as possible. Spend some time reviewing and organizing your research before class starts. Please write a brief (1-2 paragraph) description of your project to discuss during our first session. 

We will meet weekly via Zoom to discuss the lessons and answer any questions. After you enroll, please email the instructor to indicate your time zone and the best time for class meetings. Enrollment is limited to ten (10) students. See the JewishGen Learning Center Schedule for a full description and enrollment instructions. Note that students are required to have completed at least one year of genealogical research.

The class begins on July 10, 2022 and final papers will be due on August 7. Please send any questions to course instructor Marion Werle, mwerle@....

Reading Sherri's comment, I realize you haven't told us what type of cemetery she was buried in.
Tombstones in Jewish cemeteries will usuall have the father's name in the Hebrew text.

DNA help #dna

Lee Jaffe
 

Can anyone recommend good sources for posing questions about DNA research?  I don't see a many DNA questions come through this group, so I wondered whether there was another, better, venue to address these issues.  I'm not a Facebook user so the resources there are not available to me.   

I found that JewishGen has a DNA Testing mailing list, to which I've subscribed.  But the link to the group's info page – where I'd hope to find instructions, perhaps the mailing address or the archives – looks to be an ad for FamilyTreeDNA.  If someone is familiar with that mailing list and can point me to a better source, that would be a helpful source.

Other suggestions about places i can post questions and hear back from interested and informed members would be appreciated.  

Thanks,

Lee David Jaffe

Chaim Moskovitc Hustkoz Hungary now Nankovo Ukraine #hungary #ukraine #records

Awesome Properties
 

Dear researchers,
I am researching Chaim Moskovic/ Moshkowitz born c. 1845 ,from Husztkoz, Hungary now Nonkovo Ukraine.
His daughter was Leah , born c. 1865 . Leah married Mayer Leib  /Leb Teszler from Birsanif/ Barsana Romania. Leah is buried in Sighet, Romania.
I'd love to find more info on Chaim and Leah but can't find anything on Jewishgen other than Leah's burial record. Any ideas of where or how to find more info is appreciated.

How do I get original record image from JewishGen? #records #ukraine

barbara@...
 

I found a birth record listed in JwishGen that may be my grandfather, Jacob Brodetsky. The record is for Yakov Brudetsky.  Born 1886, Odessa, Ukraine. The only information is an image number: 2696 and a source SOAF. Is it possible to obtain an image of the original record? If so how do I go about doing that?
 
Thank you so much for your help,
Barbara

Shaun,

Therese Cejka arrived NYC 1889, age 20, from Austria, going to NY.  Manifests from that time frame given little info.

Do you know her married surname?  The name of her husband?  That info will help in finding other records for Therese.

If you find out the names of Therese's parents than that will help you in searching other records from her town of birth.

Good luck in your search,

Re: Searching for Riuva/Rivka/Sonia Levine or Levine #russia #belarus

AC,

Do you know the name of Riuva / Sonia's father?

Her father's name could be on her tombstone, or on her marriage record or death record.

Did she naturalize?  That document may provide further info.

Check city directories for the town she lived in Ireland for the time period of 1928 (before and after.)  If she is listed than you can compare her address to that of other people named Levine.  If she lived with her parents or siblings than you may get a clue there.

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish

and descendant of my Friedman family --prior to arriving to the USA? 

I would like to add--that my Friedman Family--are 'Yisroel'

2. 
I am also researching my Husband's mother's Friedman family

Many descendants resides in the USA  and   Israel,
Some remains in Eastern Europe

I would like to add-that my Mother-in Laws Friedman Family are Kohanim

I wonder what was their Jewish name?

Where are they buried? 
 To my knowledge--their father's name are often on the Matzevah
Which is a significant--pathway.

Anything is possible for their fates.  If it were my puzzle, I would start looking for marriage records for them between NY and Philadelphia.

Hi Shaun,
Do you have more information?  For instance, what was the date of her arrival into the US and which port?
If the manifest said she was from Austria it could have meant that she was from anywhere in the Austro-Hungarian Empire (including Galicia).
Do you know her parents' names?

I'm not even sure she was Jewish, but every time I've searched her name it led me to JewishGen (we had always assumed she was Protestant as she left my grandfather in a Protestant orphanage in the 1930s in Northern Ireland when he was 6 years old and he never really spoke about her).
Which other orphanages were there in Northern Ireland at the time?  Did she have any other choice?

Apparently "Goumin" is Ihumen in Yiddish?
Igumen was a district in the Minsk province.

Surname Burgess (anglicized) / Burgeois (gallicized), original name Burgo #sephardic #latinamerica #names

Vi Burgo
 

I’m tracing a surname in my family and need help with the origins. When anglicized it’s “Burgess” and other variations. When gallicized it’s “Burgeois” and other variations. I traced this name and found Burgo with variations. Burgess and Burgo have the same meaning: from the city. This is why I believe it's the original name or an older version of the name. Does anyone have these surnames or can tell me more information? 

According to this book, "DICIONÁRIO SEFARADI de SOBRENOMES Inclusive Cristãos-novos, Conversos, Marranos, Italianos, Berbères e sua Historia na Espanha, Portugal e Itália", Burgo comes from Smyrna. I tried finding information on Sephardis in Smyrna before the Spanish exiling and I’m not finding much information. Please share with me what you know, thanks!
