Re: DNA Matches #dna

David Goldman
 

Greetings, everyone. I hate to say that I think the matches I am provided
through the various sites are driving me batty. I realize that in most of
them called "third cousin" the longest segment is only around 10 at the
most, with the "overlap" varying below and above 100, but why does the
system proclaim a cousinhood of third cousin or such when this surely
doesn't mean that in most cases?!! All it means is that two people have some
common genetic background at some time in the distant past that is retained
in us, even where some of my matches are with non-Jews who probably had had
a Jewish ancestor in the distant past. But this doesn't translate into a
third or fourth cousin.

I am just about ready to give up contacting the vast majority of matches I
am provided with by the various sites. It just doesn't mean anything for
family genealogy within the past one or two centuries. Some of my own
relatives keep asking me, "How far back do you want to do this?! Of course
we are all related at some point, what's the big deal?!" Sometimes I have no
answer for such questions.

JGSNY Meeting May 19 #general

Harriet Mayer
 

Jewish Genealogical Society New York Meeting
Sunday, May 19 at 2 PM
at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St., New York

Program: What's in a Name? A Case Study of (Re)discovering Jewish Identity on (and
off) an Unlikely African Archipelago
Speaker: Alma Gottlieb

Co-sponsored with the American Sephardi Federation

from Poland to Brazil to New Mexico, many individuals, families, and communities
around the world are discovering that they have Jewish ancestors who renounced
and/or suppressed their religious identity. What happens when Christians today
learn that some of their long-ago relatives were Jewish? The West African island
nation of Cabo Verde offers an especially compelling place >from which to explore
this intriguing process because of the unexpected convergence of Jews and Africans
on a remote archipelago in the North Atlantic.

In this talk, Professor Gottlieb will discuss her research with Cabo Verdeans on
and off the islands who are, in a variety of ways, reconnecting with their Jewish
heritage. What parallels-and differences-do we find linking them with the global
trend of reconnecting with lost Jewish ancestry?

Alma Gottlieb is an award-winning cultural anthropologist who has lectured and
conducted research around the world. She is author or co-author of nine books and
many scholarly articles. Since 2006, she has been researching the West African
island nation of Cabo Verde. Her talk draws >from her book-in-progress, "Africa
Across the Seder Table: Jewish Identity in Cabo Verde and Its Diaspora."
She has held teaching and research appointments at Princeton University, Ecole des
Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris), and Catholic University of Leuven
(Belgium). Currently she is Professor Emerita >from the University of Illinois at
Champaign-Urbana and a Visiting Scholar in Anthropology at Brown University.

No charge for JGS and ASF members; guests welcome, $5 at the door.

The Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at CJH will be open starting at 11 AM.

Viewmate Translation Request -- Russian #lithuania

Todd Brody
 

I've posted a vital record in Russian for which I need a translation. This
is the death record for the person I believe is my gr-gr-grandfather.

It is on ViewMate at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM73210

Any help you could give would be greatly appreciative. I am particularly
interested in the words that don't seem to be part of the regular record.

Thank you very much,

Todd Brody

Offering Photos / Research at Mount Carmel / New Mount Carmel Cemetery, Glendale, Queens, New York #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I think my next cemetery visit / research will be the at Mount Carmel in Glendale,
Queens, New York. I will probably be focusing on Sections 1, 2, and 3 known as
Old Mount Carmel and New Mount Carmel. I might go next weekend but of course it is
dependent on weather.

I am happy to look for graves and take photos provided you can ID the appropriate
person. Mount Carmel has a database where you can start with your research.

I am pretty good at finding my way around in Mount Carmel. However they are not
particularly good at sharing plot maps so sometimes it can be a real challenge.

Infants, babies and children are the most difficult because a lot of times they did
not have as significant stones and they do not survive the years. If you are
looking for a child's grave please tell me in advance.

Please be specific in your requests because I can not help you if you write with a
common name and say can you find for example Harry Cohen.... you can guess how many
there are in this cemetery. Mount Carmel has more than 100,000 burials.

I do appreciate but do not demand a few dollars in return to help off set the cost
of doing these search for everyone and to make it possible for me to continue to
offer this as a service to the community. As you can understand the costs of these
repeated searches add up on me.

I am also happy to offer advice online if you email me.

COHEN from Drechin Grodno Gubernia/Scotland #belarus

arnold friedman <afriedman21@...>
 

hi,

I am researching family that moved to scotland around 1902.

solomon COHEN abt 1871 older brother samuel abt 1859
bessie COHEN (possible maiden names lens, sravitski lenzewitski) abt 1875
maybe dinah COHEN abt 1895 daughter
maybe hanah COHEN abt 1896 daughter
issac COHEN 1900 his naturalization papers show derechin. son

there is a family thought (unverified) that the family changed their
name to cohen when moving to scotland. So would look at births,
marriages and deaths >from 1855 to 1920 and try to match up times.
maybe first names.

from what i have looked so far, did not see anyone with last name
COHEN in the area.

what is the best site to find family information. the 1897 census
could be very helpful, but i could not figure out how to access the
information online.

appreciate any advice on how to proceed.

best,

arnold friedman

Hello All,

In the past I was able to use the site www.landesarchive-bw.de to search for
BMD records by the starting letter of a town name in Baden Wuerttemburg..
The site seems to be changing, and I can no longer seem to find what I am
looking for. I used to be able to search Bestande und bestellung, click on
J, enter 386, then select Bu 15 and get to the list of towns.

Can anyone provide me with a primer on how to continue to use this site.

Thanks, Best regards, Richard D. Oppenheimer r.d.oppenheimer@gmail.com
