Re: Y-DNA Research Studies of Rabbinical Lineages and Their Importance to Jewish Genealogy #rabbinic

Jeffrey Mark Paull
 

For a little over ten years now, my research team and I, have been conducting Y-DNA research studies which utilize both traditional genealogy and current DNA methods and technology to identify the unique Y-DNA genetic signature and ethnic origin of some of the world's most esteemed and historically significant rabbinical lineages and dynasties. These include the Katzenellenbogen, Lurie, Polonsky, Rappaport-Cohen, and Shapiro rabbinical lineages, and the Twersky and Wertheim-Giterman (Savran-Bendery) Chassidic dynasties, as well as the lineages descending >from the Baal Shem Tov, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berdichev, Rabbi Naftula Cohen of Belaya Tzerkov, Rabbi Raphael of Bershad, Rabbi Yechiel Michel of Zlatchov, Rabbi Yehuda Heller Kahana of Sighet, and the Shpoler Zeida.

I am pleased to announce the posting of a research article in which I explain the importance of rabbinical heritage research studies to the practice of Jewish genealogy, and present an overview and summary of some interesting findings and observations drawn >from our Y-DNA research studies of the thirteen rabbinical lineages and dynasties mentioned above, including the defining haplogroup and subclade that is associated with the Y-DNA genetic signature for each of these lineages. The title of the article is: "Y-DNA Research Studies of Rabbinical Lineages and Their Importance to Jewish Genealogy," and you will find it posted at: https://independent.academia.edu/JeffreyMarkPaull.

Some questions about Polish research #poland

Barry Mann
 

from Stanley Diamond's article:
Obtaining permission to carry out this work is complicated,
however, because birth, marriage and death records are
typically all in the same Duplikat register book. (Original
individual registers of births, marriages or deaths, known as
Unikats, span a number of years and were retained by the
synagogues. Duplikats, also known as metrical registers,
were created for the civil authorities and include births,
marriages and deaths in one book.)

Have any of the Unikats been scanned and digitized ?
Were any of the Duplicate register books,  duplicated themselves.
ie. Is there more than one copy of some of the Duplikat register books.
I found that in one of the Duplikat register books , one or more pages
were missing. (Torn out).

Do the towns leaders have the latest information for their towns
including Phase 2 and Phase 3 records?
And are all these records included in the Excel files that the leaders
have for their towns.

How can I find out for a particular town: What records and for which
years the town leader has, but have
not yet been added to the JRI-Poland datebase yet?

Thanks,
Barry Mann

I am looking for information about the VENNITSKY (Vinnitski, Vennit)

According to the 1920 Brooklyn US Census my great grandfather, Menasha
Vennitsky, was born in 1864 in Vilna. His wife, Fannie Schosid
Vennitsky, was also born in Vilna in 1875. Their children were Dora,
Max, Charlie, Esther (Joy) and Sam. They arrived at Ellis Island in
about 1900.
Any help in learning something about the Vennitsky family would be
greatly appreciated.

Re: Listing of religious leaders / figures per city/shtetl in pre WW2 Europe ? #general

For Hungary there is Shem Hagedolim Me'Eretz Hogor, with its various
supplements, which was reprinted after the war in Brooklyn. It lists
for most towns the name of the rabbi and the dayanim, often the
lecturers in the smaller synagogues etc. and some other religious
functionaries.

INTRO - researching the ROTHGIESSER family of Emden, Niedersaschen. #germany

16leiba@...
 

Hello GerSig, I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy
research for about eight months. I consider myself to be intermediate
in doing German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in Watford,
Hertfordshire, in southeast England. My native language is English and
I also know a bit of French and German. I consider myself a beginner
in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of all of my
grandparents, all of my great grandparents and thirteen of my great
great grandparents. My primary research goals now (concerning Germany)
are to find out the members of the ROTHGIESSER family. My JGFF
Researcher ID number is 813080. The family names and ancestral towns
that I have entered in the JGFF (JewishGen Family Finder) (for
Germany) are COHEN (>from Norden, Niedersaschen), NATHAN (>from Emden,
Niedersaschen), NORDEN (>from Norden, Niedersaschen) and ROTHGIESSER
(>from Emden, Niedersaschen).
