Dear Siggers,

A few of you sent me several links to the article about the
old cemetery in Brody. Many Thanks!!!

I enclose the most easy one. The article is in German but the list is
in big Hebrew letters and starts >from image 171(p.121).

Mina Jacobowsky Simon #poland

kay@...
 

Several years ago, I posted a request about this person and received a
few answers, so am posting again. My g-g-grandmothr Mina JACOBOWSKY
arrived in the US around 1850-1851. She gave birth to Henry SIMON in
New Orleans in 1862 and his birth record indicates that her maiden name
was Jacobowsky. We believe that she was born in Prussia between about
1819 and 1825. We also know that she came to the US with two childrenm
Bertha born 1847 and Hannah born 1848 and her husband Bernard or
Benjamin Simon. The family originally thought that she died in
Springfield near Fort Parker in Limestone, Co Texas in an area where we
knew the family lived.

But that could not be proven and we were given information about a
tombstone in New Orleans for a woman of the same name buried there in
the Hebrew Rest Cemetery on September 23 1862. However, this woman,
according to the Hebrew translation I received, died childless and this
is not true of my g-g- grandmother.

We also know that there were two other Jacobowsky-i or similar spelling
in early Mississippi. John D Jacobowsky lived in Pike, Co before the
Civil War and in New York after and a Jacobowsky woman married a Hart
there.

I am hoping to find information that might connect these families and
perhaps find a family in Europe with a similar name that had children
who left between 1840 and 1855.

Re: How close could this DNA match be? #dna

The DNAPainter website <https://dnapainter.com/tools/sharedcmv4> has
a "Shared cM Project Tool" page where you can put in your number of
shared cM and it will list the likely relationships, and the
probability of each relationship being the correct one. This doesn't
take into account Ashkenazi Jewish endogamy, which can result in
relationships being more distant than tools like this predict. The
shared cM tool estimates for 731.6 shared cM:

- 81.32% prob. that relationship is one of: Great-Grandparent,
Great-Aunt / Uncle, Half Aunt / Uncle, 1C, Half Niece / Nephew,
Great-Niece / Nephew, Great-Grandchild

- 18.68% prob. that relationship is one of: Great-Great-Aunt / Uncle,
Half Great-Aunt / Uncle, Half 1C, 1C1R, Half Great-Niece / Nephew,
Great-Great-Niece / Nephew

Please provide a translation of every word, as we know so little about him

Hi Esther,
If Rafael Miller made Aliyah and went to live in a religious Kibbutz, as some of those young people did, maybe the archive of the Religious Kibbutzim Movement can be of help.

Re: How close could this DNA match be? #dna

Steve Adelson <sjadelson@...>
 

Much too close for a 3rd cousin, or even a 2nd, unless the lady was (say) a
child of two first cousins who married. A little weak for a 1st cousin,
although not completely ruled out. My money's on a first-once-removed
(probably first cousin to your wife's uncle's parent), even if that means
that there's an unexpected relationship somewhere.

Best,
Steve Adelson

-----Original Message-----

I recently uploaded my wife's uncle's Family Finder DNA results to
MyHeritage and soon noticed a very significant match of Shared DNA of a
female:
10.3% (731.6 cM) with longest segment of 111.6 cM!
The estimated relationship was first cousin or great niece.

When I got more information about the matching woman, I found out that
unfortunately she has meanwhile passed away and that there is not much
family information available.
It is obvious that she was not first cousin, very unlikely first cousin once
removed or second cousin (only if there was a "Foyle Shtik" - monkey
business - in her family), possibly second cousin once removed, and more
likely a 3rd cousins or further relationship.
I'm obviously trying to find more information about her family tree, but
meanwhile I wonder, isn't the match statistically too high for a 3rd cousin
and I should explore the option that it *must* be a closer relationship?

Re: ArkivDigital Free Access Through November 10 #scandinavia

Jan Meisels Allen gave an important, concise and all in all correct
description of Swedish Jewish history. However, it contains one
controversial piece of information, to use an understatement.

The sentence reads:
"Sweden opened its doors to Jews during WWII and again in 1956 when Jews
were fleeing Hungary and then again when fleeing Communists in 1968."
The beginning of this sentence is to my best understanding much too broad,
when referring to the Swedish government's policy and course of action,
especially leading up to and during the first years of the Second World War.

A historically more accurate statement would in my opinion be:
"In the late 30s, before the onset of the war, Sweden gave very few Jews
permit to enter Sweden. Among those who were accepted were a few hundred
Jewish children who were allowed to enter under the Kindertransport scheme.

During WWII, Sweden opened its doors to all Danish, and some Norwegian Jews.
However, it did not in general allow non-Scandinavian Jews to enter Sweden,
with some exceptions. At the end of the Holocaust Sweden allowed thousands
of survivors to temporarily enter Sweden for rehabilitation.

Eventually, many of the survivors were permitted to settle in Sweden and to
receive citizenship. Later Sweden accepted many Jewish refugees, e.g. in
1956 when Jews were fleeing Hungary and later when Jews fled Communist
regimes, specifically Poland, around 1968."
