ViewMate translation request - Russian #general

Sandra B Landers
 

Dear fellow genners,
I've posted a vital record in Russian for which I need a translation.
It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM73065

It is the 1882 marriage record of my great-grandparents Izrael and
Necha FURMANOWICZ who were cousins. I am only interested in the city/
town where this event took place and where they were from. I have
all the other information >from previous translations.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

Thank you so very much,

ViewMate short translation request - Polish or possibly Russian #general

Rivka Ben-Shochet
 

I am requesting a translation of a handwritten statement on the back
of a picture taken in Lyakhovichi. The ink portion is clear. There is
also faint pencil writing.
It is on ViewMate at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM73062

Please respond using the online ViewMate form.

The picture itself is of a 1910 funeral of a Zionist activist. It also
appears at
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/lyakhovichi/ZionistFuneral1910.htm

Our copy belonged to my grandmother Henie Cymielinsky Isakof but I
think she inherited it >from one of her sisters, Goldie Leos or Rae
Dashevsky, granddaughters of Leib Loss of Lyakhovichi.

I have posted to two groups (Belarus and JewishGen). I hope that is
acceptable.

Thank you so much,
Rivka Ben-Shochet

Ancestry New Ethnicity Estimates -- Everyone Gets Moved Over on May 30 #dna

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Last fall, Ancestry announced their new ethnicity estimates for new and
existing customers. Due to a new algorithm and five times more reference
samples, Ancestry believes the estimates are more accurate. Effective May
30, 2019 all AncestryDNAR customers will be transitioned to their new
ethnicity estimates. To keep prior results, download them by July 20, 2019.

To read more see the Ancestry Blog: https://tinyurl.com/y2txpete
Original url:
https://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2019/05/02/understanding-your-new-ethnicity-estimate/

A personal observation. When I received my new ethnicity estimate I was
concerned as I "lost" my 2% Iberian. But when I looked at the new Ancestry
map and compared it to the old one, I saw that half of Spain was now
included in my "new" estimate's geography. By the way I went >from 96%
Ashkenazi Jewish to 100% Ashkenazi and the geography fits perfectly with my
own genealogical research and family knowledge. Do look at the new maps if
you have any concerns about differences.

I have no affiliation with Ancestry or AncestryDNA and am posting this
solely for the information of the reader.

APOTHEKER Family Galicia and in the USA #galicia

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,

I am researching my wife's family APOTHEKER. Her grandfather Lazar
APOTHEKER (1858-1942) was born in Nowy Sacz (Tzanz) and had at least
7 siblings: Baruch Markus, Dawid Alexander, Mojzesz, Marjem, Jochewed,
Ester, Eidel. The oldest was Barukh Markus (b.1853). They were the only
APOTHEKERs there according to a document >from 1870. The head of the
family was Saul Isaak APOTHEKER (1831-1893) married to Lea Landau. All
his children named one of their boys Shaul.

Recently I had several breakthroughs and found out that Shaul's children
lived later in their life in Bardejov (Slovakia), Przemysl and the nearby shtetl
Nizankowice, Dobromyl, Lesko and Krakow. All the Apothekers I found at
JRI-PL in Galician locations are offsprings of Shaul. Ellis Island DB lists
some of them as coming >from Lemberg (Lwow) and Bobrka (Bibrka) not
too far >from there. I managed to locate Rabbi Leib APTHEKER who was
Rabbi in NY (apparently the son of Barukh Markus mentioned above).
Alexander Beider mentions also Stanislawow, Borszczow and Kolomyja as
places where members of the family lived in.

My wife's father Dawid APOTHEKER (1908-1995) was on the Sugihara list
and stayed during the War in Shanghai. We found on the Sugihara list
another Dawid APOTHEKER. We thought at the beginning that it was a
technical mistake but later found out that this one indicated to the JDC
that he had a cousin in NY (the son of Rabbi Leib Apotheker). But as far as
we know he never made it to Shanghai and have no idea what happened to
him.

The given names Dawid, Leib(Leo), Meshulam have also strong presence
in the family. We know of another Dawid APOTHEKER who was in NYC in
1892 through this scandalous story, but have no idea who he was but that
he was >from Galicia.
https://www.newspapers.com/clip/23123171/david_apotheker_bigamist/

There was also an APOTHEKER family in Iassi, Romania but they are
probably not connected.

If any of those names ring a bell, mainly for those who live around NY, or
any one >from Galicia who has them on his tree we would be glad to hear
from you.
Regards >from Jerusalem

ViewMate death record translation request - German (Suetterlin) #general

Graeme Boocock
 

Hello,

I've posted a death record in German (Suetterlinschrift) for which I
need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM73077

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

The record pertains to Adolf Abramowitz, who was the brother of my
wife's direct ancestor. We only learned about this family member when
the Polish archives proactively (and to our surprise) sent us his
birth record when those of his two siblings were requested. I found
record of him attending school in Bielitz in 1896/7, but assumed that
he must have died relatively young, having found no record of him
until now. We know that the family moved to the Berlin area ca. 1900.

This death record appears to confirm that he died at 23 years of age
in Lichtenrade or Mahlow.

I am primarily interested to know the cause of death, if it is listed,
and any occupation details. However, I would very much like to have a
full translation, if possible, since there are often details hidden in
the German words that I cannot read.

Thank you very much in advance,

Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois Monday evening meeting #general

events@...
 

"A 3-D View of Immigration" will be the topic of a presentation by
artist, author and genealogist Susan Weinberg at 7 p.m. Monday, May 6,
2019, at the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois meeting at Temple
Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook, Ill.

At this meeting, the JGSI genealogy help desk and research library will
operate >from 5:30 to 6:55 p.m. Member volunteers will access online
databases and answer genealogical questions one-on-one for members and
visitors. Books in the JGSI library, which has more than 800 volumes of
interest to Jewish family historians, will be available for perusing.

Susan Weinberg's talk "A 3-D View of Immigration" presents a perspective
on immigration through the lens of laws, documents and family story.
With a focus on the 1900s, she will examine the immigration laws that
affected entry, immigration documents that were created with changes in
the law and stories of Jews of the 1900s who came to America.

In addition to her work in the genealogy community, Weinberg is the
author of "We Spoke Jewish: A Legacy in Story," published by the Jewish
Historical Society of the Upper Midwest. Based on interviews with elders
from Sholom Home in Minnesota, the book contains stories gathered >from
Jews who grew up in early immigrant communities, Holocaust survivors who
came in the 1940s and '50s, and immigrants >from the former Soviet Union
who came in the 1970s through '90s. Her presentation, using video clips
from those interviews, will tell a lively story of Jewish immigration to
the United States and the life of an immigrant juxtaposed with the
documents and laws that framed that experience.

other times there may be several in one day.

These are listed alphabetically not chronologically. Each month the locales
covered differ.
