He was alledgedly a peddler who had a horsedrawn wagon.

His wife (Charlotte Federstock (Lotte) was also known as Leah Federstock)
and him arrived in the Grand Duchy of Warsaw (>from Kiev) sometime during the
1890's.=C2=A0 They had 3 sons.=C2=A0 My Grand Father- Chaim David (date of
birth 1898)...next in line was Meyer, and the youngest son was Roman.

He died of unknown causes at an unknown date while still a young man.
His wife and 3 young children somehow survived until she was able to open
a live poultry shop in the Ghetto. This business was thriving (1925-26).

Lara Diamond, featured speaker February 25th meeting of the Phoenix Jewish Genealogy Group #general

Emily Garber
 

On Sunday, February 25, 2018, the Phoenix Jewish Genealogy Group will
sponsor a presentation by genealogy researcher, speaker and blogger
Lara Diamond, "DNA Successes In -- and Despite -- Endogamy." The event
will be held at the Valley of the Sun Jewish Community Center, 12701
N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85254, >from 3:00 - 5:00 P.M. in
room 103/104. Admission is free to Arizona Jewish Historical Society
members and $5 to all others.

Jewish genetic genealogy is complicated because we are dealing with an
endogamous population -- one that has married within their own group.
Many people get frustrated when trying to identify actual relatives
from the mass of genetic cousins who are likely related in many ways
quite far back. Learn how you can have success when dealing with
endogamy. Lara will present examples >from research into her own
family's DNA. Her successes include reuniting with family branches
thought killed in the Holocaust.

Lara Diamond has been researching her family for 25 years, starting as
a middle school student. She has traced all branches of her family
multiple generations back in Europe using records created during the
reigns of the Russian and Austria-Hungarian Empires. Most of her
research is centered in modern-day Ukraine, with a smattering of
Belarus and Poland. As an Ashkenazic Jew, she has particular fun with
DNA analysis of her completely endogamous genome.

Lara is president of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland, leads
JewishGen's Subcarpathian Special Interest Group, and is on
JewishGen's Ukraine SIG's board of directors. She also runs multiple
district- and town-focused projects to collect documentation to assist
all those researching ancestors >from common towns. She blogs about DNA
and her Eastern European research at
http://larasgenealogy.blogspot.com

(Netherlands) EU's Data Privacy Regulation Affects Access to Netherlands Family Cards Being Online #france

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes
effective on May 25, 2018. The IAJGS Records Access Alert has posted a

The Tilburg, Netherlands Regional Archive has announced their online family
cards collection dating >from 1920-1940 will be affected by the GDPR as the
family cards contain data about the religious disposition of residents. As
a result of advice of the Association of Dutch Municipalities the archive
will no longer be able to offer the services of family cards online.

WAGNER from Zolkiewka in Yiddish - second half of 1930s #poland

Tamar Amit <ta.genealogy@...>
 

Hi All,

I've uploaded 3 scans of letters / postcards or backs of photos to
ViewMate. They are in Yiddish.
They were probably sent >from Jankel WAGNER's home town of Zolkiewka in
SE Poland to him after he left in 1930s to South America.
He left behind his wife Chawa and young daughter Ruchli as well as his
parents and siblings.
The plan was to get settled and bring them over - a plan that was
disrupted both by a big fire that ravaged most of Zolkiewka in 1938
and by the war that broke out a year later.

He left first for La Paz in Bolivia to join some relatives of his wife
and then to Buenos Aires as he was not well in La Paz.

The notes are in Yiddish and are on ViewMate at the below links.
I'd appreciate any insights.
As far as we know, the wife an daughter did not survive and I'd like
to learn as much as possible about them and the status in Zolkiewka.
As far as I know, not one of them survived.
