Re: Littlestone name change #belarus

Rod,

Littlestone was obviously Anglicized.

Quite likely may have been the Yiddish (and German) equivalent, which would
be Kleinstein.

Good luck in your search.

I am a happy user of 23andme but have no other connection to the
company. I do feel that a couple of questionable statements about
23andme were made in the most recent set of posts.

First, 23andme has no subscription services. They abandoned that
pricing model well over a year ago.
I stand corrected. I did not know about the change. Many others will
not look at 23@M for some time because of the out of date information.

The $99 (plus shipping, about
$10 domestically and more abroad) is all I have ever paid, and the
promise is that I never will have to pay another cent. My access to
my own data and the analysis tools they provide is permanent.
Yes. progress.

Second, in reference to the size of the respective databases of 23
vs familytreeDNA, the current numbers on their respective websites
are 300,000 (for 23) and 600,000 (FT). HOWEVER, all 23 users have
taken the autosomal test since that is the only test they have ever
offered. FT first started offering the autosomal test in 2010.
Therefore, an unstated (but probably large) portion of the 600,000
users have taken only a male-specific or female-specific (Y or mt)
test, which FT offered for five years or more prior to 2010. Thus,
in terms of autosomal matching, 23's customer base may in reality
be larger.
I was looking for FTDNA FF database size data but could not find
it. I will test with 23&M soon and will compare the results. I
have 1,940+ matches which is typical for a fully eastern Ashkenazi
Jew. When I see the equivalent 23&M report, I will be able to
compare more fully.

Also -- as I read in other forums, FTDNA customers are more into
genealogy while most 23&M customers are mostly interested in the
medical reports. People found FTDNA matches more likely to respond
to genealogical correspondence.

At this time, 23 and FT use the identical "chip" for autosomal
analysis, which scores about 700,000 sites of single nucleotide
variation, or SNP. For a fee of about $50, 23andme users can
upload their results to the FT site, gaining access to both customer
bases for a total cost of about $150. I have done this with my own
results and found that the process worked seamlessly. I have not
seen any information suggesting that the reverse direction of
transfer is permitted, but it is possible I missed it.

If your interest is in finding relatives, autosomal DNA is superior
to either gender-specific test because you are not restricted to
just the male line or just the female line. Most relatives have a
mixed-gender path to you, and can only be found by an autosomal test.
However, because autosomal results don't, by themselves, reveal
whether the connection is on a maternal or paternal line, it is very
helpful to have your father or mother tested (or a known paternal or
maternal aunt or uncle, or even cousin). For example, if a
prospective relative matches to me and to my paternal uncle, I can
assume the prospect is related on my father's side. There are other
things going on that make autosomal DNA more challenging to interpret,
but with some good traditional sleuthing, as one of the posters
mentioned, you can get a lot out of it.
Autosomal tests (FTDNA'a at least) overestimate the relation
proximity for Ashkenazi Jews. mtDNA tests are almost useless for
genealogical research. Y-DNA tests, while limited to one line, are
most reliable. However, in order to find needles in the haystack,
they have to be there. Few of our relatives have tested and it is
difficult to persuade even many active genealogists to test. In
addition, most Jewish genealogists have not taken the trouble to
research past Ellis Island, and those who did got one or two
generations at best. I know my patrilineal ancestry back to the
16th Century. >from Y-DNA testing and shallow geographical information
I can identify credible candidates for sixth or seventh cousinhood or
thereabouts. However, they do not have sufficiently deep ancestral data.

Also -- Testing one's own Y-DNA is just the start. You also have to
test your maternal grandfather's, Your parents' maternal
grandfathers, etc. You would be lucky to find relatives to work on
each line, but...

BTW, Russ. How many relatives did you discover via 23&M?

Genealogy method in Oradea, Romania #general

Alexandre Farkas <farkas.alexandre@...>
 

Good evening everybody,

I work on my paternal grand-father's genealogy since a few month, and I succeded to
find a lot of things about his life in France. My next step will be to go in
Oradea, Romania, in October.

My grand-father Ernest FARKAS left Oradea in 1933, when he was 19. His family
stayed there : his parents Moric and Eszter, and his two sisters Illeana and
Aniko. I'm pretty sure that my family was jewish, so that I think they died
either in the ghetto, or in Auschwitz ; except my grand-aunt Aniko, who left to
Israel a few years after WW2. I have already search on local and international
internet databases about Holocaust.

So, my question is : How could I prepare my "genealogist trip" in Oradea in
October ? I have the adress of the archives center in Oradea, and the list of
available collections :
http://www.arhivelenationale.ro/index.php?lan=0&jud=79
But there are 34 pages, in romanian ! I don't know by what way I have to start.

Does anybody know something about genealogy in Oradea ? Your help would be really
precious for me.

More Galician Programming & Ask the Archival Experts at the IAJGS Conference #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

Dear IAJGS Conference Attendees:

In addition to the IAJGS Conference programs listed in the July 19,
2013, digest of Gesher Galicia and the IAJGS Conference, we want to
list some other programs being presented by our members that may
be of interest to those researching Galicia & more:

Sunday, August 4 - Franklin Room, 4th Floor

3:15PM - 5:00 PM - Film: "General Anders Army"

This documentary tells the fascinating story of the Poles deported
from Eastern Poland to USSR, evacuating >from USSR after Germany
attacked and forming an army that fought in Italy. Many of the Jewish
soldiers who were in the Anders Army were >from Galicia and the film
contains original footage. The film will be presented by Julian
Bussgang, who was born in Lviv (Lwow) and is a longtime member of
Gesher Galicia. (Julian presented a memorable talk at the Polish
Embassy in Washington during the DC 2011 IAJGS Conference on this
topic, so you won't want to miss this film and discussion afterwards.)

Wednesday, August 6 - Plaza Ballroom, Mezzanine

2:00PM - 3:15PM - "Books of Residents and Other Valuable Polish
Sources" ( i.e., sources in addition to metrical records ) - Fay and
Julian Bussgang

Even if vital records for Polish towns are missing or incomplete, you
may be able to gather significant information about your family from
lesser-known but extremely valuable sources. The most informative
of these are Books of Residents (Ksiegi Ludnosci). These 19th-20th
century municipal registration books, which have survived for many
towns, contain detailed information, organized by address, about all
the inhabitants in each household who had their legal residence in
that community. Other useful documents include survivor and ghetto
lists, kahal and synagogue records, notary records, city and business
directories, regional almanacs, passport applications, and
professional and military records. Examples of data >from the above
sources will be shown as illustration.

_________________________________

I also want to bring another program to your attention. I'm
moderating a panel of archival experts which will be an entire 75
minutes devoted to your questions and their answers. Many
researchers find their ancestry crosses modern borders and the
records are held in a variety of archives. This session will offer nine
archival experts to offer guidance on where and how to search. In
some cases the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, the LDS
FamilySearch, or the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish
People (CAHJP) in Jerusalem may have microfilmed or digitized
records held in foreign archives, so you may discover other ways to
find the information you need without traveling abroad or hiring a
researcher. On the other hand, there are some records which can
only be found in the archives and you'll learn about those, along with
how to expand your research beyond just vital records. Here is the
info:

Wednesday, August 6 - Imperial Ballroom

3:30PM - 5:00PM - "Ask the Archival Experts"

Are you an experienced genealogist with a research problem you've
found insurmountable or a budding beginner seeking guidance on
where to start your "rigid search" (as Jonathan Safran Foer put it in
"Everything is Illuminated") in overseas archives? Get help from
experts who are knowledgeable about archives >from Budapest to
Berdychiv, Lviv to Lodz, Jihlava to Jerusalem. You'll learn what's new
at a variety of international research hubs and what's planned for the
future of Jewish genealogical archival research. Internet resources for
accessing digital archival content will be covered and no question is
too difficult or demanding. Audience participation -- if you know
something they don't -- will be part of the mix.

Our Experts:
Alexander Dunai - Ukraine, Poland & Galicia
Howard Margol - Lithuania
Lenka Matusikova - Czech Repulic
E. Randol Schoenberg - Austria & the Czech Republic
Robinn Magid - Poland
Zsuzsanna Toronyi - Hungary
Israel Pickholtz - Israel
Yefim Kogan - Bessarabia & Romania
Pamela Weisberger - Poland, Hungary & Galicia

If you cannot attend the conference -- or can't make every session --
most of the talks will be offered as audio (and some video)
recordings, and selected talks, including "Ask the Archival Experts,"
will be offered as an online streaming presentation for a fee. Look
for the word LIVE! in the online program schedule. The conference
organizers will be providing info on that soon.

jberlowitz331@...
 

Mark London's recent post seemed to be looking for ways to see the
Cyrillic spelling of relatives' names. One thing I found useful,
though sad, was to go to Yad Vashem, where I saw some Pages of
Testimony with names written in Russian.
