I have a photo of a postWWII 1949 gravestone but I don't know the
location of the cemetery in Marburg. Kindest Regards,

Grodinsky burial info #unitedkingdom

gspiel@...
 

A friend of mine would dearly love to visit her brother's grave. Her brother
was Michael Benjamin Grodinsky and died in March 1936 at the age of 6. The
family have no idea where he might be buried, although the child's
grandfather, Rabbi Hillel Grodinsky and father were both buried in Edmonton
Federation. The family tell me that Rabbi Grodinsky was the rabbi at the
Machzikei Hadass shul in Brick Lane in the East End. They've searched
JewishGen and didn't find his records. They've called the Edmonton
Federation, thinking it was likely he'd also have been buried there but
there was no record of his burial. Any ideas how to proceed next?

Many thanks.

JGSGW, Washington, DC - Sept 19, 2010 #belarus

Marlene Bishow
 

Date: September 19, 2010 1:00 p.m. schmoozing
1:30 p.m. short business
meeting and program
Location: B'nai Israel, 6301 Montrose Rd, Rockville, MD
Speaker: Steve Luxenberg

"Genealogy >from the Inside Out: Tracing a Family Secret >from a Single Clue"

When we learn about a family secret â a hidden relative (or a hidden
marriage, or a hidden divorce, or a hidden cause of death) our
understanding of the family tree is dramatically changed. How do we pursue
that single clue? In 1995, Washington Post Associate Editor Steve Luxenberg
found out his mother had been hiding the existence of a sister who was then
deceased, and it was the genesis for his multi-year odyssey to unravel the
rest of the story, including his aunt's three decades in a psychiatric
institution. Using a slide presentation, Luxenberg brings the audience
along on the journey he took to write his award-winning book, “Annie’s
Ghosts: A Journey Into a Family Secret.â He travels through burial records,
birth certificates, hospital records, immigration documents and wartime
records, and assembles them into a coherent paper trail. A result was a
significantly changed understanding of his family history and societal
stigma regarding mental health.

Guests are welcome. This program is relevant to all faiths.

Mr. Luxenberg will also be available for a book signing.

Philip,

The place that you are searching for is Temeszow [teh meh shoof]
at 4924 2214. The town was part of the Brzozow district, and is
located in fairly close proximity of large Jewish shtetls: Dynow,
Brzozow, Sanok and Tyrawa Woloska. I could not located any
references to Jewish life in Temeszow beside the information that
in 1900 amongst the total number of 535 residents were also 13
Jews.

searching for Isaac LIPSHITZ in Odessa 1900-1910 #ukraine

Marilyn Okonow
 

My grandfather, Isaac Lipschitz, was living in Odessa right before he
immigrated to the US in 1910. He was born around 1882 in Polatsk. I believe
he had a family in Odessa that he lost, because he then came to New York and
met and married my grandmother, but I was told he had been previously
married in Odessa. Where do I begin to look for him in Odessa? On the ship
manifest he lists his occupation as locksmith. Suggestions, please, on where
to start.

Re: Family Finder - The Big Picture? #dna

Robert Neu
 

Hi,
Relationships based on DNA testing are exactly thst. Probab;y the
best way to call the people that one shares a "related" dna with,
until proven otherwise, is "dna cousins".

However don't dismish it that easily. On a wide spectrum it does
inform you whether you have a likely dna that one, to some, to many
othet likely Jewish population, whether Oriental, Sephardic, or
Ashkenasy. Also remember that up to 9th century conversions were
allowed and frequent, hence, becoming disallowed.

As to family names most were acquired in the late 18th century,
though some had one much earlier. Nevertheless patronimics were the
rule. As an example when in the old testament the writer is presented
as Jozhua son of Nun, all it is his name: "Joshua ben Nun".

The suggestion that one would have a different dna result >from our
immediate parents is ridiculous. Remember that there were perhaps
10,000 Jews in Europe of the 10/12th Century. Looking at it another
way it means that by then we are all related.

Among the ways Jews came to Europe is the conquest of Rome in the
first century , and the second century CE when Masada and Bar Kochba
were defeated. Remember that The Roman soldiers were ***not Romans***
but more than likely Germanic and that the retiremeent plan, after
twenty five years of survival, was the prisoners you took and a piece
of land near the borders of the Roman Empire.

So, yes some of us may have DNA that is not 100% >from the Middle East.

So let us be tolerant even in our DNA cousins.
