Surnames come from several different sources. Sometimes the same name exists more than an explanation

The name Herman is related to the name of the town of Hermann Mstatz in Bohemia, where the Jewish settlement has been documented since the 15th century. In some cases, this surname is related to the German first name Herman, which literally means "master".

In foreign languages ​​the name Herman appears in a number of different spellings.

Familiar figures with the Jewish surname Herman include Franz Herman, a late-ninth- and early-20th-century German jurist; And Hugo Herman (1940-1887), a Czech-born Zionist writer and journalist.

Hi Barbara,

As with all newspaper resources, the usefulness of Chronicling America (https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/) depends on what you are looking for. It is considered one of the better free resources for American newspapers. Its usefulness will depend on what time period and which towns and cities you are interested in. You mentioned that you found it at your public library, but it is web based and accessible from home.

Hope that helps.

Re: J-P58 genetic testing #dna

Adam Cherson
 

I'm not so sure of the initial J-M267 prediction from 2009 is still accurate. A quick haplogroup prediction based on Victor's Y12 using current techniques shows the type is likely to be somewhere within J2b (aka J-M102 aka J-M12), with about a 90% certainty. I have seen some evidence of Cohanim in this sub-tree. For example the Kahn family of Cohanim going back to 17th Century Alsace are within J2b.

Y37 isn't going to go very deep at all. I was suggesting Y37 based on the J-M267 call, and being within the focus of my project. But seeing as the type is probably J2b and I don't have a good database for comparison I wouldn't suggest the Y37 or joining my project. Instead I would go with one of the panels such as the J2b-M12 Panel as YSEQ. This will give you a cost-effectively good idea of what sub-clade within J2b is involved.

It's free to everyone, and if you're American, your tax dollars go to support it.  Everyone doing American research should be using it as a regular resource.

Re: Questions re putting family tree on genealogy websites #general

Max Heffler
 

This is a dilemma. I often wish I had started my tree with Ancestry instead of Brother’s Keeper. I used Brother’s Keeper on my PC and manually keep geni.com up-to-date, since there is only one tree, unlike Ancestry or MyHeritage. Then I use Ancestry and MyHeritage record matching for record and tree matching and photos and then update my local database and geni. I wish I had less than 40,000 hints pending at Ancestry. It was over 48000 months ago…

 

I used to replace my trees on Ancestry and MyHeritage once a year but then had too many matches and DNA, etc so stopped that. They remain less up-to-date my my local database and geni.

Hi,

 

I'm preparing a family tree on my computer and want to put it on a number of genealogy websites, by uploading a GEDCOM file. I am not sure when to upload it since I am still working on the tree, and am not sure how future changes will work. 

 

When I make updates to my family tree on my computer, will I need to update each addition on each genealogy website, or can I simply upload a replacement GEDCOM? If I can simply upload a GEDCOM file, will it influence any matches that I might have accepted from the genealogy website? Or are there any other predictable problems? 

Any insight appreciated!

We digitized and indexed the local Jewish newspaper that start in 1908 and the early issues are really in bad shape. That site has enhanced many of those early years so I use their site instead of my images when they fall in that time period they have.

Tzvi,zvi,צבי, means a deer. In German or Yiddish it would be Hirsch or Hersh. My ancestors with that name who were Austro-Hungarian  or German Jews, were given the secular name, Hermann. In the US it would likely be spelled Herman.

Gesher Galicia New Update from Ukraine for Thursday March 10th #galicia #general #ukraine #poland

Steven Turner
 

1. Misha does not have a report today. He said that he wasn't feeling all that well, and he also had some work to do for the Museum. He is keen though, to send regular reports with information for us to distribute, and he said he would send another report tomorrow.


2. I spoke today by phone with Tetiana Yavi who lives in Nadvirna in the Ivano-Frankivsk oblast and does translation work for us. She said that there were 2 times during the night last night that air raid sirens went off. She said that every night before she goes to sleep she gets anxiety attacks and starts shaking because she doesn’t know what the coming night will bring.


She said that Nadvirna is full of refugees from the East. Schools are closed and there is not even virtual schooling going on. No learning at all for the children. The schools are being used as shelters for the refugees. She said walking the streets of downtown you now hear a lot of Russian because that is the language of many of the refugees from the East. She said more refugees are arriving every day.


Many men are now leaving the town and their families to join what she calls the Territory Protection which to me sounds like a local militia. Guns are everywhere and that scares her. Needless to say life is stressful.

Re: Any information on the map locations of the jewish ghettos set up in uzgorhrod #ukraine

pinardpr@...
 

Hi,

I found a couple of maps of Uzhorod from the inter-war period online.

 
On that map, you can see Minajska street, south of the river and running in the map quadrants B3 and B4.
 
On a second map, the same street is rendered in the map Czech, Ukrainian and Hungarian. The Hungarian name is "Minaj" which would correspond in pronunciation with "Minai" as you wrote. Since there was not enough space to write the names in three languages on the map, it is listed simply with the number 26 and one has to refer to the tri-lingual list. Today, this street is called Shvabska St. I looked for Shvabska St.  45 on Google Maps Streetview, but am not sure whether I found it or not. Some of the houses do not have numbers on them. Here is that second map:
 
 
On page 218 of the 1927 telephone book for Slovakia and Subcarpathian Russia, I found in Uzhorod the timber wholesale company of one Miksa Glueck, located at Radvanska 80. On this second map, Radvanska Street is No. 37, and seems to correspond to today's Mukachivska Street. Mukachivska 80 looks like a construction site. It is out towards the main railway station.
 
Pre-deportation containment areas were very often located near railway stations, think of the Umschlagplatz in Warsaw, directly at Dworzec Gdanski or the Radio Trade Fair buildings here in Prague close to Praha-Bubny station, for example. So, it would make sense for such a facility to be near the train tracks.
 
I have not located a brickyard at Uzhorod yet, but have some more places to look.
 
All the best,
Rick Pinard, Prague


Re: J-P58 genetic testing #dna

Adam Cherson
 

Thanks for the detail. With 7 step differences from the CMH Victor is not considered to share the CMH: the standard applied by FTDNA is three or less. Further, DYS390=24 and DYS388=17 do not appear in any of the CMH haplotypes I have seen. Keep in mind that the P58 tree is interesting in many respects other than the CMH so this particular finding is no reason to stop being curious!

Re: Questions re putting family tree on genealogy websites #general

lydgateaction@...
 

Have you asked every person on that tree to consent - and whether they appreciate their ancestors being uploaded, and have they properly considered the risks? 

Maybe some live in Ukraine? Or Iran? Or might do so on the future. Maybe some won't appreciate wrong information being shown about their relatives. Maybe some don't want it to be easy to figure out via a DNA test someone might do 10 years from now that they are not the father of their child who that have loved forever. Maybe some don't want to loase control over multiple incorrect versions of their family that are cloned so many times it is impossible to correct. 

Just uploading files can be extremely disrespectful, and sometimes abusive. Abusive genealogy is a big topic.
