Matzevah inscription - translation request - Hebrew #germany

Jeff Lewy <airbair@...>
 

I've posted a matzevah inscription in Hebrew for which I need a
translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM64084

I am told the matzevah is for my gggrandfather Israel LEWY.

I am interested in a full translation, including all names, locations,
occupations (if any) and "abbreviations" of sentiments shown on the
matzevah.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much for this unique and irreplaceable resource helping
us learn about our ancestors!

Botoshani Cemetery-BAETU #romania

Niftee
 

Hi
I recently came across a record on JewishGen for Hanta BAETU buried at the
Botoshani Cemetery. The record gives the plot number. I don't know if there
is a headstone but would anyone know how I could find out, as well as getting
a picture of the headstone if it exists.

Thanks so much.

Which DNA company to use? #dna

Helen Gardner
 

Roberta.
I would recommend FTDNA.

I have tested on both FTDNA and Ancestry. The ancestry sample was very
much harder to collect compared with FTDNA, I don't get nearly as much
useful information >from the Ancestry listings, and it's more complicated
to see.

Endogamy still applies even if you are only part Ashkenazi Jewish, though
not as strongly, and so the estimates of relationship will still be way
too high. Ancestry doesn't give any information on the longest block,
which is essential for getting a sense of how distant the relationship
really is, eg even if the total cM is say, 120-140, if the longest block
is less than 20 then the most recent common ancestor is almost certainly
more than 6 generations back, rather than the 3rd to 4th cousins Ancestry
are likely to suggest with "high confidence". This is beyond retrieving
any paper trail for confirmation.

Also, I haven't found a way to look at chromosome data on Ancestry, which
is easy on FTDNA.

So basically, using Ancestry, you can only take the figures they give you
on face value, which is unlikely to be correct when Ashkenazi heritage is
concerned. This is especially so if friend and mother both test.

Also, a major disadvantage of Ancestry is that if you do find a promising
result you can only contact the person by sending a message to their
Ancestry account. If they happen not to access their account for a year,
you just have to wait. Eg I sent a message to someone late August 2017.
That person has not accessed her ancestry account since 27 July 2017, so
5 months later she still hasn't seen my message. Same thing with My
Heritage.

With FTDNA you get an email address so you can correspond directly. I
have always had fairly prompt replies, though I understand that isn't
always the case.

I'm writing on behalf of a friend.
1. Friend's mother's family is Ashkenic Jewish >from Poland.

2. Friend's father's family is not Jewish. Friend and his father's parents were all born in Mexico. Friend's father's mother may have roots in Spain or Yucatan.

Which DNA testing company would be the best for Friend to use if his mother did not also test?
If both Friend and his mother test, which DNA company should they use?

Searching: "HaRav HaDin Avraham LIPSZYC" #rabbinic

Saul Marks <ancestry@...>
 

Dear All,

I'm researching a family named LIPSZYC who lived in the shtetl of
Dobrzyn nad Wisla in the first half of the 19th century. Dobrzyn is on
the north bank of the Vistula River, between the cities of Wloclawek &
Plock, 80-100 miles west of Warsaw.

Szaja LIPSZYC had children in Dobrzyn but later moved to Liverpool, UK,
in the 1870s, & died here in 1879, in his mid-late-70s (sources vary re
his age, of course). However, it's safe to say he was born probably in
1800 +/- 5 years. His tombstone gives his Hebrew name as "Yeshaya ben
HaRav HaDin Avraham", which seems pretty clear that Szaja's father was,
at the least a rabbi & possibly even a dayan.

My guess is that Avraham would have been born around the 1760s-1770s,
although I've no idea where. >from what I've read, the well-known
LIPSHITZ (& variants) rabbinic families came >from Germany & Austria, so
this may be the case here too.

Has anyone heard of Rabbi Avraham LIPSZYC, possibly of Dobrzyn (aka
Dobreen)?

Many thanks,

Saul Marks
