3rd cousins once removed - no shared DNA segments found #dna

Jules Feldman
 

My great-grandfather, Yankel Feldman of Skapiskis, Lithuania was the brother
of S's great-great-grandmother. We are therefore 3rd cousins once removed.
However a comparison in Gedmatch tells us: " No shared DNA segments found".

I am a layman trying to understand this statement and will be grateful to
the mavens if they put me on the right track.

I understand it as follows:
The DNA tests are for a certain number of genetic markers and not for the
entire human genome therefore the statistical reliability of the tests
should drop. However how much do they drop?

Siblings have on the average 50% DNA in common
First cousins 25%
2nd cousins 12.5%
3rd cousins 6.25%
4th cousins 3.125%
Since S and I are between 3rd and 4th cousins we should expect 4.6875% .
How does that translates into cM?

Now theoretically a brother and sister could have no DNA in common if one
sibling received one set of chromosomes and the other the completely
different set of each parents. Since there are crossovers between
chromosomes that is probably impossible but if it is possible it would
probably be one chance in billions.
When we talk of average we have to relate to deviations >from average eg in
the case of siblings what percentage of siblings would have an overlap of
between 25% - 75% and what percentages above and below these limits?

My family connection with S is backed up by a fair body of family narrative
and documentation. What is the statistical probability of us not having DNA
segments in common?

The Vilna Great Synagogue and Shulhoyf Research Project #lithuania

Jon Seligman
 

As part of the process to find a fitting memorial for the Great Synagogue of
Vilna and its associated buildings, we are conducting our second season of
research at the site to excavate, preserve and present in-situ the remains
of the Great Synagogue as part of an overall scheme for the long-lasting
safeguarding of the memory of the Jewish community of Vilna, the 'Jerusalem
of Lithuania'.

The 2016 season of excavation will take place on the site of the Vilna Great
Synagogue and Shulhoyf between the 20th June to the 1st July. We will be
concentrating our efforts this year on the exposure of the miqve (ritual
bath) of the Shulhoyf that we located last year using ground penetrating
radar.

During our work at the site anybody visiting Vilna is welcome to visit the
excavation, located on Zydu Street, behind the school that now covers part
of the synagogue.

Further information concerning the project can be found on our website at -
http://www.seligman.org.il/vilna_synagogue_home.html .

Viewmate Cohen Sisters Mystery Photo ID #general

rootsjew@juno.com
 

I've posted an inscribed photo of three "sisters" on ViewMate at the following
address ... http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM5757

Two are definitely sisters. I'm trying to ID the third who could be one of two
people (if the second existed) based on the information I've provided below.

Anna Cohen & Her Sisters (left to right) Aunt Miriam Mom Aunt Sophia
Is "Aunt Miriam" a Mrs. Gettleson or Miriam Levitt Cohen?

Background:

In this undated photo, I've identified "Mom" as Anna Cohen (Mrs. Max) Sofen of Des
Moines, Iowa, Anna, the daughter of Ezra Moses and Frieda Cohen, was April 15, 1883
in Lithuania and died in Des Moines, Iowa on March 30, 1966.

Aunt Sophia was Anna's sister, Sophia Cohenn (Mrs. Julius Robinson). Sophia was
born about 1886 in Lithania. She died in Des Moines on October 17, 1951.

I haven't been able to obtain a copy of 1922 E.M. Cohen's obituary, but Frieda's
1921 obituary indicates that she was survived by a daughter, Mrs. M. Gettleson who
was living in Poland at the time of Frieda's death.

I know of no such person. Aunt Miriam is more likely Anna and Sophie's
sister-in-law, Miriam R. Levitt (Mrs. Eli Cohen). Miriam was born about 1885 in
Syracuse, New York. She died in Des Moines on March 29, 1909.

What do you think?

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

You may try Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw:

http://www.jhi.pl/en

I recommend Genealogy or Contact tabs.

However the archives >from the periods you mentioned may not exist. During
the WWII Warsaw was the most destryed city in the world: several weeks of
indiscriminate German bombing in September1939 was only the beginning.
After the Warsaw Ghetto uprising in 1943 Germans systematically destroyed
every building in the Jewish Quarter. After the Warsaw Uprising in 1944
Germans did the same to the rest of the city leaving only the buildings
which they used.

Good luck

Because of Eva: A Jewish Genealogical Journey - new book #hungary

sjgwed@...
 

Mysteries in my family's past prodded me to delve into WWII and Holocaust
history, with valuable assistance >from JewishGen databases and members, too.
Soon, my investigations led me through a side door into the past, where
family history merged with world history.

Part memoir, part detective story, Because of Eva: A Jewish Genealogical
Journey (Syracuse U Press) is an intimate tale of one woman's history within
the epic sweep of world events in the 20th century. What began as a
seemingly simple search for "Eva," the elderly relative who had signed my
estranged grandfather Aaron's death certificate long ago became a journey of
discovery after I found her in Tel Aviv. There, I heard Eva's stories of survival
during the Nazi occupation of Budapest in 1944, where she fought in the
resistance, saved other Jews, knew Raoul Wallenberg, and subsequently cared
for Aaron in his final years.

Eventually, I would fly to Budapest to walk Eva's streets in and out of the
former Jewish ghetto, and confirm her stories. I also visited my ancestral
towns Zbaraz, Skalat, Tarnopol in Ukraine, and Czernowitz in Bukovina to
bear witness to the slaughter of entire populations of Jews. Amid remains of
loss and destruction in Aaron's hometown, Zbaraz, I learned details of my
family's life before relatives came to America.

(US) Final Rule on Certification for Access to Death Master File #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On July 1, 2016 the US Department of Commerce, National Technical
Information Service (NTIS) published the final rule on Certification for
Access to the Death Master File(DMF) within three years of the person's
death. It may be read at:
https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2016-06-01/pdf/2016-12479.pdf. The rule
becomes effective November 28, 2016.

An interim final rule was published March 26, 2014-just over 26 months ago.
On December 30, 2014, NTIS published the proposed rule months ago. The
Bi-Partisan Budget Act of 2013 was signed into law on December 26, 2013 the
law that established the changes in access to the DMF also known as the
Social Security Death Index . Between those time periods, there was a public
meeting March 4, 2014 where the genealogical community testified, and
submitted written statements regarding the interim final rule, Limited
Access Death Master File and submitted statements regarding the proposed
final rule.

The final rule did not modify the provisions >from the proposed rule and all
of the genealogical concerns are still there. The rationale for not
accepting these and other interest groups' concerns is addressed in the
beginning pages of the final rule.

To read more about this and the archives on the interim rules, see the IAJGS

great month for new additions, projects.
See the details at the "What's New" section of our web site.

now 38 cemeteries indexed and/or photographed with total of 40,921 records.

JewishGen /JOWBR. Please see the overview, maps, photos, and more at
Falesti New Cemetery Report.

JewishGen /JOWBR. Also there are 484! photos of unknown graves.. Please see

donation of $100 to Bessarabia/Moldova Cemetery project you will get the
spreadsheet in advance and also if you find your ancestors, I am going to
send you photos of the tombstone if available.

for different towns. Another set of Kishinev 1859 located at different
microfilm was found, and that is more than 3000 records. It will be ready
