Daniel,

What is the size of the total segments matches between you and
Anna
Adrian
Abel

What is the size of the total segments matches between your son and
Anna
Adrian
Abel

What is the size of the total segments matches between your son's mother
and
Anna
Adrian
Abel

Also, if you phase your son's matches on GedMatch, and Anna does the
same for her son's, and then compare, you will eliminate many false
positives

Hi Dan

Most likely there is some DNA matching with Anna's son etc however it
is much smaller so is not showing. Remember each person has a different
amount of DNA material they receive >from parents, grandparents etc. I
have a strong match (with a know relative) with one person but none
showing with her brother.

I am confused. I made a DNA testing with MyHeritage and got a match with a
woman we can call Anna. But there is no match between Anna and a son of mine
who has also been tested. Maybe his DNA >from me didn't contain DNA that I
share with Anna.

Anna's sons Adrian and Abel has also been tested. There is no match between
me and any of them but between them and my tested son.

How come?

Romania as a sign of respect and acknowledgment of the suffering of these
heroes.
. A law guaranteeing access to the state archives for specialists >from the
Federation of Jewish Communities in Romania in order to know the truth about

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Genealo-J #137 has just been published #france

Georges Graner
 

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 137, March 2019 has just been published.

Many Jews >from Algeria settled in metropolitan France during the first
half of the 20th century. Jean Laloum tries to follow their fate during
World War 2 and especially during the period of the Vichy government. As
for all French Jews, they lost their jobs, even when they were small
businesses. For example, Laloum quotes several widows who were
costermongers and were not allowed to continue their jobs. Most of the
1,500 Jews >from Algeria were eventually arrestedby the Nazis and the
French police and deported : only five percent of those deported
survived. Laloum plans to to list in detail all these Jews. He begins by
those originating >from the region of Constantine, namely those >from
Guelma, Jemmapes, Khenchela, La Calle, Lafayette, Le Tarf, Mac-Mahon,
Oued Zenati and Philippeville.

Julien Colet tells the story of his great-grandmother, Fortunée Abignoli
nee Dyan. She was born in Cairo, probably in 1890. In 1919, she married
Moise Abignoli who already had been married twice and had five children
from his previous marriages. After the birth of a daughter, they settled
in Marseille in 1920, where a son was born in 1923. Moise died in 1936.
Fortunee stayed in Marseille during the war, even after the German army
occupied the city. She was arrested in a roundup in January 1943 and
confined in Compiegne and Drancy. Deported in Convoy #42 she was killed
in Sobibor in March. Colet was amazed to find that the present members
of Fortunee’s family have different and distorted versions of her life.
After the war Fortunee’s fate still casts a heavy shadow upon her
children, grandchildren, and even perhaps great-grandchildren. This
story makes it obvious that the effect of the Holocaust has lasted long
after the war.

When Victor Fribourg died in New York on May 7, 1884, a long obituary
was published in the New York Times and in several other states. He is
so famous in his family that even in 1972, a wedding announcement in the
New York Times says : "The bride is a descendant of Victor Fribourg, who
was captain under Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.” Anne-Marie
Fribourg, who belongs to another branch of the same family, studied in
detail the life of Victor, who was born in Niedervisse (Lorraine) on
January 10, 1797, participated in the last Napoleonic wars and emigrated
to New York with his family in 1847. He became a prosperous businessman,
had nine children, at least 37 grandchildren and numerous offspring who
scattered in many of the United States and even in Peru. Fribourg
corrects several details in Victor’s legend, especially she shows that
he has never been an officer.

Andrée Margolin nee Lantz, an active member of our society for decades,
died in 2018. She left an interesting testimony of her life during World
War II. Born in 1924, she was a student in Paris and later in
Clermont-Ferrand during the German occupation. She tells of her
determination to pursue higher education in spite of all the obstacles
she is faced as a Jew and explains how her family was able to escape
deportation.

Eliane Roos Schuhl describes a medieval seal with the tree of life and
two birds. Deciphering Menahem Ezobi’s name on his medieval seal matrix
led Roos Schuhl to look for members of this family native of the city of
Orange (Vaucluse) in the 13th century. Three of them, father and sons,
were known as Hebrew poets. The article deals with a few individuals
bearing this rare name in Beziers, Carcassonne, Perpignan, Carpentras
and Toulouse and all the way to Bulgaria, Italy, Spain and Turkey.

Konyatyn, Ukraine #general

Dear all,

I am looking for sources on Konyatyn, Ukraine.

I think I identified it as located at 48°03' N 24°56' E
south-south-west of Kuty.

JGFF names only one researcher interested in Konyatyn, while Miriam
Weiner's RTR does not have any information of the archives that may
have BMD records.

I wonder where vital records fro Konyatyn are held (for 1885-1905) and
whether there are any other sources for research.

Any insights will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
