What happened to the Badatelna images that used to be on their site? Does anyone know where they can be accessed now?
For example, I had recorded this link that no longer works:  http://www.badatelna.eu/fond/1073/reprodukce/?zaznamId=2860&reproId=43379  
Thanks for your help,

Workman's Circle headstone does not mention wife and daughter of the deceased. Why? #usa

angel kosfiszer
 

Here is a picture of the headstone of my 2nd cousin's husband. She did the paper work when her husband died but her name/relationship and their daughter's name/relationship is not on the headstone. The death certificate suggests they were not living together at the time of death. Was their enmity so strong she did not want to have her name on the stone?. May be their name/relationship is on the back?

Re: Acquiring records from Kaunas (Lithuania) Regional State Archives #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

Many thousands of records in the Kaunas archive have been filmed by the Family History Library in recent years and are available online (though not always easy to find). LitvakSIG is in the process of updating its online database (All-Lithuania Database or ALD) with all available film links. As an interim measure until the update is posted, I invite anyone seeking a record from Kaunas to check with me first to see if the record has been filmed. My email is vhrproject@....

I reached out to Mr. Katz privately and in his case all the records he wanted were in fact online.

Search for grandmother and parents #poland

Jane Leusink
 

 

Dear members, I am looking for information about the parents of Gudes Bursztyn, grandmother of my late husband Leo Cukier. Gudes was born in Warsaw, house 31/10, Praga, March 13, year 1896. She died in Sobibor april 1943 from Holland. I am especially interested in the parents of Gudes: Father Cecil Leib Bursztyn, mother Ryvka Szaindle, born Ciszinska/Ciszsinki. Gudes was Registered Birth Registries for Israelite Confession of the Commissariat 12 of the State Police of the Capital Warsaw on April 8, 1896. N0. 119. 
It is possible that WWII has destroyed all the information about inhabitants of the district Praga, thank you very much.

 

Kind regards

Jane Leusink. The Netherlands/Groningen

@Jody Tzucker:
That may be true for large amounts, but it is still relatively expensive for small amounts - which is the same problem with wiring money..
Let us say that I would have to pay the Kaunas Archives €12 for a document (I remember it was something like that).
At "wise.com" I plugged in an amount which would send exactly €12 to the Archives.  The calculated fee was €4.60.

Abraham Haldey family #ukraine

RozaTyler@...
 

Searching for Abraham Haldeys children,  my grandfather efim Haldey  was one of his 13 children. He had a sister named Klara too. They are from Ukraine originally,  but my  grandfather moved to Riga Latvia with my grandmother Rozalia  either before or after the war. I think most of thr siblings stayed in Ukraine,  some may have moved to Moscow or Riga.  If you know anyone or are related to this family please reach out to me. Rozalia mihailovna  meytus . 
Thank you.

Re: DNA analysis solves mystery of bodies found at bottom of medieval well #dna

Jill Whitehead
 

This is in all the British newspapers this morning and you can download the paper for free from Current Biology. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cub.2022.08.036. It follows on from initial investigations in 2011 and a BBC programme from then called Cold Case. The haplogroups of the 6 bodies tested for ancient DNA were:

Three full sisters: H5c2
One male: E1b1b1b2a1b1a
One male: J1a2a1a2d2b2
One male: T1a1a
The three males were related to each other and to the three sisters. 
These are all established Ashkenazi haplogroups today, and they showed evidence of Ashkenazi endogamic disorders related to a population bottle neck c 1140.

Re: Why would a teenager flee his Hassidic rabbinic roots? #galicia #poland #rabbinic

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Do you have a paper trail or family knowledge he was a son of Rabbi Moses Eichenstein of Schodnica, and his mother Sara Rifka Efrusi ? 

If you have, no need to question, life in the shtetle was challenging enough, multiple reasons to leave, from personal to army draft… the name Philip is a non-issue, just Americanized. Jewish name may have been, for example, Feivish.

From what I know (hearsay, not documents), any son designated by the family would be exempt, not necessarily the eldest one.

Re: Basis for inclusion of George Barnett #records

Adam Turner
 

It appears that the specific record you are referring to is in The Family Tree of the Jewish People. 

There is a FAQ that explains how records get into the FTJP database here: https://www.jewishgen.org/gedcom/faq/

I am not thoroughly versed in every potential corner case regarding how GEDCOM files get uploaded into the FTJP, but the one-sentence answer to your question is: all of this data originates with user submissions, just like user-submitted trees on Geni or Ancestry.com, and thus it is only as reliable as the researcher who submitted it. 

As for why the researcher the FTJP lists as the submitter claims to be incorrectly listed: much of the data in the FTJP is very old. Barring an unusual occurrence like corrupted data causing the database to incorrectly match tree entries with users who didn't submit those trees, I suspect that probably one or more of the following is likely the case:

  • She uploaded a GEDCOM file containing your ancestor many years ago, and now does not remember doing so;
  • She shared her login information long ago with a family member or friend, and that person also uploaded their own GEDCOM trees to the FTJP using her login. (Or, similarly, maybe she collected GEDCOM files from others and uploaded them to the FTJP on their behalf.) As she was not the original creator of those trees, the data in them is unfamiliar to her even though she is listed as the submitter;
  • The GEDCOM she uploaded is large, and over the years she has lost track of why she included some of the thousands of people who were in that GEDCOM. (Maybe if you point out other people who are listed in that tree as George Barnett's descendants, it will jog her memory of why his family ended up in her GEDCOM?)

Re: OLSZTYN #names

Rodney Eisfelder
 

Jonathan,
Olsztyn is the Polish name of the town previously known as Allenstein, now in North-eastern Poland, and previously in East Prussia.
Allenstein was also the name of local the kreis (county). As a topoynmic surname, it is not likely to be exclusively Jewish, or exclusively any other religion.

I hope this helps,

Seeking Information about the ANGIELCZYK family in Lukow and surrounding region, Poland #poland

Sarah English
 

Hello,

I've been researching the ANGIELCZYK side of my family for the past couple of years. I have managed to get as far back as the mid-to-late 1700s. My branch of the family resided mostly in Lukow, Poland, though there was significant migration to places like Warsaw. Unfortunately, the Warsaw records are very poor because of mass destruction of files.

There appear to be branches of the family that either originally came from, or migrated to, Sokolow-Podlaski and surrounding areas. I have been trying to find out how these branches were related (if they were), and I feel as though the information that I'm missing exists at the top-most levels of my tree. I have very little information about siblings at that level.

I would be happy to share my tree with anyone who shares the surname. It would be gratifying to be able to iron out a few mysteries.

Best,
Sarah English
