Triangulated DNA matches and Pile-up Areas #dna

Lee Jaffe
 

I would appreciate help to determine whether a cluster of triangulated DNA matches is significant or whether it is negated because it is in a pile-up region.  
In the example from MyHeritage, I've identified four people who match me on the same segment – Chromosome #2   88,474,256 - 105,231,018
All of the individuals have fairly strong matches to me, enough that I already considered them higher priority on their own.  The possibility of identifying four matches with a suggestion that we  share a common ancestor might be a useful clue in solving some of my brick walls.



However, I recently attended a DNA workshop where the instructor mentioned that matches in pile-up areas were not useful.  According to the chart I copied, there is a common pile-up area on Chr #2 starting 85,304.243 and ending 99,558,013  As you can see there is some overlap with the triangulated segment I am investigating.  BUT, the triangulated segment isn't completely within the pile-up area where the examples shown during the workshop were entirely within the pile-up area.  Therefore, I wonder ...

Is the triangulated segment significant or not? 

I've found a number of good guides about pile-up areas and also those discussing triangulation but I haven't managed to find anything which relates one to the other.  I'm hoping members of the list can answer this or point me to a source which provides the answer.  I quit Facebook a year ago, so I don't have access to the relevant groups there.  I've tried to join JewishGen's DNA Testing mailing list but haven't yet managed to navigate that resource.  

Thanks in advance for your help,

Lee David Jaffe

Kozelets Family Lists from 1888 Are Translated #ukraine #translation

Beth Galleto
 

Dear fellow researchers,

Tax censuses (family lists) from the Kozelets uezd (district) in 1888 have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project.

The lists include 169 numbered families made up of 1,136 individuals. Among these families there are 157 surnames. I have extracted these surnames and attached the list to this email. The original pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website in FHL film 1409779, item 4. 

So far this project has translated tax censuses from six Chernigov uezds in 1882, and from ten uezds in 1888. Data from all except the most recently translated of these lists can be accessed through the JewishGen search page.

Search for your surnames of interest from the lists that have been uploaded by entering each name in the JewishGen Unified Search. When the results page appears, click on those listed for the heading "Ukraine Revision Lists". (The tax censuses or family lists are not actually revision lists, but they are similar enough to be categorized under this heading.)  

Those who donate $100 or more to the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project on the JewishGen website are eligible to view the completed spreadsheets before they are uploaded to the website. Please contact me with proof of your donation if you want to see any of the finished spreadsheets. All donations of any size are appreciated and will continue to advance the project. You can donate through the following link: 

https://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22

Next to be translated will be tax censuses from the Glukhov uezd in 1888.

Best wishes,

Beth Galleto,
Project Leader

 


question regarding records #records

Diane Friel
 

Thanks for looking at my request.
 
I am searching for information about Szimon/Sime Kukielka/Kukialka (1858-1898)and Chaja Kosowski/ Kosowska/Kossowski (1856-1930).
 
JRI Poland has a record of their marriage. Szimon was widowed and had a child from a previous marriage, but that child is not the subject of my search.
 
I am interested in finding records of children born to Szimon Kukielka and Chaja Kosowska. I have a DNA match with a woman whose grandfather, Joseph Kukiolki, came to the US in 1907. Ship’s manifest listed him as Chie Josef Kikiolki. He married Tillie Levine in 1921 - on marriage certificate 24858 his name is listed as Joseph Kuck. On that document, Father’s Name is Simon and Mother’s Name is Chaja. Unfortunately, a stamp covers his mother’s maiden name. But I believe it corroborates that he is the son of Szimon Kukielka and Chaja Kosowski. Eventually he changed his name to Kook.
 
I have another document requesting a military headstone for Joseph. It was requested and signed by a Benjamin Cook, who says he was Joseph’s brother. I haven’t found any documents about Benjamin that state his parents.
 
So I have two men who look to be the children of Szimon and Chaja but I can’t find data from the Jewish websites to verify. Most of the Kukielkas in my family came from Chmielnik, but this family appears to have resided in Sobkow.
 
Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks so much.
Diane Ricks

Hello, 
Nankovo is in Transcarpathia, Huszt region, Ukraine. 
The records are stored in the state archive in Uzhgorod ( Ungvár).
I recommend to contact Mr Bela Huber, he is a local researcher and he has access to the archive. 
His contacts can be found on Jewishgen researchers list. 
Highly recommended

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

alanacalvert@...
 

She wasn't buried in a Jewish cemetery. She married a Protestant man before her death in 1958 and was buried with him in Omagh in Northern Ireland. I haven't been able to find any birth certificate, death certificate or marriage certificate for her. All I have is a photo of her headstone, my grandfather's birth certificate and some undated photos of her.

The headstone also says she was born in Goumin in Minsk. Someone from Belarus told me this could be because she was saying Humen (Yiddish for Ihumen - as it was known at the time) and was misunderstood by English speakers. 

I found a Rivka Levin who was born on the same day as her (June 6) in 1895 on ancestry.com but I don't know if this was her. I'm guessing her name was more likely Rivka or Rifka but the English person wrote her name as "Riuva" because she couldn't understand her accent.

USHMM Make Holocaust Related Ukrainian Archives Available Online #announcements #records #ukraine #usa

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) has made Holocaust-related Ukrainian Archives available on line with special permission from the Ukrainian State Archives. This results in 10 million pages of records that will be accessible online for the first time.

The first one million pages are now searchable at https://tinyurl.com/562kfn4u

Original URL:

https://collections.ushmm.org/search/?f%5Bbrowse%5D%5B%5D=ukr&f%5Bf_textual_materials%5D%5B%5D=historic_documents&per_page=50&q=RG-31&search_field=all_fields&sort=datetimemodified+desc%2Ctitle_sort+asc

 

These archives include historical materials from before, during and after the Holocaust. They include collections topics such as:

 

  • The activities of Jewish political, cultural, educational and philanthropic organizations;
  • information about individuals, census data, vital statistics, lists of names, personal files, etc.;
  • pogroms during the Russian civil war, closure of synagogues and dissolution of Jewish communities by the Soviet authorities, demographic and statistical information and other documentation;
  • the Nazi German administration in occupied Ukraine and Ukrainian auxiliary police;
  • Jewish ghettos;
  • postwar developments, such as Soviet investigations of war crimes committed by Germans and their allies on the occupied territories, return of evacuated populations, restitution of Jewish property and war crimes trials and Soviet antisemitism.

 

With one of Europe’s largest pre-war Jewish populations, Ukraine was the site of critical events in Holocaust history, including the beginning of Nazi Germany’s systematic mass killings of Jews after the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. At least 1.5 million Jews were killed within Ukraine’s current borders.

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,
