Connection between R' Shmuel LANDAU and KANTOR/KANTOROVITZ of Karlin #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

We have a family oral tradition of being descendants of R' Chaim of
Volozhin. The tradition relates that my ancestress , Sarah Hinda
(SHATZ/KANTOR) was the link to R'Chaim.

Sarah Hinda , her father was a Shat"z in Karlin in the mid 19th cent.
so it is not sure if he /they were called Shat"z after his profession
or was their formal name. One scribbled note mentions Shmuel LANDAU,
who was a son-in-law of R' Itzaleh son of R'Chaim of Volozhin. There
is another scribbled note stating that Sarah Hinda was a descedant of
R' Chaim but giving no exact connection.

Two other family oral traditions are that Sarah Hinda was orphaned at
a young age and that R' Itzaleh "took" her to her Chupa (wedding). It
seems that Shmuel LANDAU and his wife (a daughter of R' Itzaleh) died
young, making the above case even stronger. A second "rumor" is that
the Rav of Yahud, R' Mordechai Gimple YAFFE, who's father had studied
in Volozhin, told one of my cousins that he knows that we are
descendants of R' Chaim of Volozhin. As this cousin has long deceased,
and this rumor also does not specify an exact link to R' Chaim.

May be the most well known families that are descendant with me and
through them came these "rumors" are R"chaim Dov KANTOR
(KANOTOROVITZ?) a well known early settler in Moshav Shfeya and nearby
Zichron Yacov, (he was the Mashgiach of the Yekev in Zichron and close
to Rav Avraham Yitzchak Hacohen KOOK) and his son-in-law Nachum
WEISFISH (who was murdered by Arabs in the 1920s).

If anyone knows of the above and can confirm these family
traditions/rumors I would love to hear >from you. I would also
appreciate it if this e-mail could be passed on to a member of the
WEISFISH family who may be able to confirm the above details.

autosomal DNA testing #dna

Helen Gardner
 

Hi all.

Some time ago, when I was first investigating DNA testing, I
found that autosomal testing was what I needed, since I am
looking for a relationship between three people: me (female),
through my father to my grandmother, a male who has the same
surname as my grandmother, clearly through the male line, and
as an additional help, my female 1st cousin, through her
mother to our joint grandmother.

Everyone has agreed. Yeeaaahhh!

But I cannot find a test called autosomal on the JewishGen
DNA site. I remember being told not to use mtdna. Which is
the right test to choose >from the JewishGen DNA site. Or do I
need to go somewhere else?

SIG for Russia, am I wrong. I found that my great grandparents are buried in
Nitzhy Novgorod (formally Gorkiy). I have found their graves and probable
those of two other relatives, but I would like to see if I can find any
living relatives in the area as unlikely as it may be. With no Russia SIG I
can find, I don't know where else to ask for locating someone that could
help us. Anyone have any ideas?
