JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen East Prussia records on Ancestry.com #general

Roger Lustig
 

For those of us researching East Prussia, there is a large trove of
records lurking in the ancestry.com databases.

Specifically, the Jewish vital-records cards for Koenigsberg (now
Kaliningrad, Russia) have been put on line and indexed, but...

...they're in a collection called "Germany, Lutheran Baptisms,
Marriages, and Burials, 1519-1969".

These records cover well over a century, ending in 1874.

Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Connection between Mordechai ZACKHEIM and KANTOR /SCHAT"Z of Karlin #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

In my great greatuncle's (R' Chaim Dov KANTOR of Zichron Yaacov and
Sheya in Israel) he mentions that the Rabbi of Karlin (in the mid 19th
cent.)Rabbi Mordechai (RUDINER ?) was a "she'er b'saro" ( in Hebrew
"relative") of his family. My uncle uses the word "Rudiner" (or
Ruzhiner) rather than giving the Rabbi's family name. and >from some
reseach and correspondence, I am assuming that thus Rabbi Mordechai
was a member of the ZACKHEIM family. Rabbi Mordechai came to Karlin
from Ruzhin and probably hedescribes the Rabbi by the town he came
from.

I am wondering if anyone knows of the connection between the KANTOR
family (my ancestor was Shlomo KANTOR and his wife Sarah Hinde ) and
the ZACKHEIMs, specifically the Rabbi stated above.

I have seen George SACKHEIM's "the Scattered Seeds" and had contacted
him many years ago without finding the connection there. One possible
lead is that , I understand that the above Rabbi Mordechai had been a
student at the Volozhin Yeshiva and according to family sources, Sarah
Hinde was somehow related to the "Volozhin" family.

Moroccan Jewish DNA Profile #dna

Jules Feldman
 

I am helping an adoptee friend in her search for her birth father.
Her birth mother, now deceased, was born in Morocco and came to Israel in
the late 1950s. Her birth father does not appear in her adoption file.
Our adoptee friend acc to Family Tree DNA has the following origins:
Asia Minor 37%
Eastern Middle East 18%
North Africa 11%
Southern Europe 21%
Jewish Diaspora (ie Ashkenazi) 13%

We are trying >from this to fathom the possible origin of the birth father.
What are the likely origins of a Moroccan Jew?

Our adoptees closest match is a "2nd to 4th cousin" with 42 cM in common
including a block of 17.

We will be grateful for your comments.

Re: Revision List records #bessarabia

One more thing I forgot to write about Revision List records.

I was asked many times if everything was translated >from the records. My answer was that in most cases
that is correct, but there are records with a lot of small script addition, which if hard to read, we will
not spend time to decipher it. This was always our rule. unfortunately we cannot research one record
and spend an hour for it.... remember in this set there are almost 5,000 records!

You can order these records at LDS or if you are getting for a donation a full table and find your
ancestors, we can send you a page or two of original records.

All the best,
