Newsweek article on DNA of Abraham's Children #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The June 3 issue of Newsweek has an article on the DNA of Abraham's Children
citing an analysis of Jewish genomes. The study finds:" Each Diaspora group
has distinctive genetic features "representative of each group's genetic
history," but each also "shares a set of common genetic threads" dating
back to their common origin in the Middle East. "Each of the Jewish
populations formed its own distinctive cluster, indicating the shared
ancestry and relative genetic isolation of the members of each of those
groups." To read the article go to:

1901 Ireland Census On-line #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As reported on this forum September 2009, and January 2010 the information
on the 1901 and 1911 Irish Census was in the process of being digitized and
the 1911 Census was posted last September. All 32 counties of the 1901
Irish Census are now available on the National Archives of Ireland site:
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/. There is no charge for accessing
the information including the census records >from the site. Corrections and
improvements will be ongoing and the small amount of missing material will
be added to the site.

The 1901 returns are arranged by townland and include for every member of
each household; name, age, sex, relationship to head of the household,
religion, occupation, marital status and county or country of birth. The
census also records an individual's ability to read or write and ability to
speak the Irish language. It also gives details of the houses.

The Library and Archives of Canada were a partner in the digitization
process with the National Archives of Ireland. For those interested in
Ireland you might find the LAC on-line exhibit relating to documents on the
Irish in Canada of interest: http://www.collectionscanada.ca/ireland/.

While we may not think many Jewish ancestors came >from Ireland, remember
some may have stopped in Ireland on their route to Canada or the United
States. Therefore, it is worth checking the database.

Thank you to Dick Eastman for alerting us to the 1901 Irish Census being
placed on the website. An Irish Times newspaper article regarding the
release may be viewed at:

Maiden name for Dutch woman #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Erica Henrietta (surname unknown) was born in The Netherlands 5
June 1924. By 1952 she may have married Jerome Sullivan and
traveled to the US where she became a citizen in 1953 in Michigan.

My question: Is there some way to search the birth records for The
Netherlands to find a matching child? Is there anyone who can find
this record and send it to me? I am helping a Gen friend in
Australia....

Please help me find my SIEGEL relatives #general

Roberta Apte
 

I am having a very difficult time finding this side of my tree. My
pgf was Samuel B. SIEGEL b. 8/4/1902 -- (NY) d.1/26/83 (FL.)

According to his birth certificate, his father was Abram SIEGEL, born
in "Russia" in about 1869, mother Rose SCHWEITZER, also born in
"Russia" about 1874. Abram died in the Flu epidemic of 1918-19
according to family history. Rose remarried a man by the name of
Nathan GOLD. I have no other information on this marriage. Abram and
Rose had other children; daughters, Shirley/Sophie( married name
Herman), Mollie/Mae, married twice -- first husband, Willie a
maintenance man on Rose's property on Coney Island, then Hymie, a
butcher. Etta, married to Archie (Ruberman?) no children, and Anna
(Borak) died in childbirth, daughter survived, named Anna.

My gf's birth certificate lists 199 Forsyth St, Manhattan, as his
residence. It also says that he was the fourth child.

I know that Rose owned and ran a "resort" on Coney Island, renting out
one room studio type apartments.

The only other address I have is for Etta and Archie-
350 Lefferts Ave in Brooklyn where they lived for a long time. I
don't know if Rose lived there or not.
