Dear All,

I am trying to compose a list of surnames of Jewish families who
resided in Cairo during the 20th Century. It was a cosmopolitan
community of Sephardic and Ashkenazi families ,many >from the
Mediterranean basin and the Levant (Syria and Iraq). As far as I am
aware no such list was ever published if composed at all. Please
respond privately.

Re: Narrowing a list of Y matches #dna

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

There are a numbers of Jewish Y-DNA Haplogroup Projects at Family Tree
DNA. They are run by volunteers. Since people get tested for different
SNPs, their terminal SNPs are differ. What most of the volunteers do is
to subgroup their members, thus reducing their members' paternal line
match lists. For Werner Frank, since he is a R-P25, he should join the
Jewish R1b project. Some of the other Jewish Y-haplogroup projects are:
Jewish E, Jewish R-M124, Jewish_Q, J2a-Z435_Jewish, J2a-Z482_Jewish, WIRTH
J-L556 L560, and J2b_455-8.

NY cemeteries #general

Trudy Barch
 

Hi friends,
I finally found death dates of 2 ancestors. One in 1995 (last
residence Poughkeepsie, Dutchess, New York) Rose Dansky. and one in
1996 (last residence Bronx, New York) Archie Dansky. They are
sister and brother. I can not find a cemetery name or obituary in a
New York newspaper. Possibly no obit listed. Any suggestions where I
could find the cemetery name or names, possibly in separate cemeteries?
Their parents are in Mt. Zion but these 2 are not
Thank you, Trudy Barch, FLorida

(Lithuania) Vilnius Church Stairway Made of Jewish Gravestones Has Been Dismantled #lithuania

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Lithuanian Jewish Community website reports that a stairway to a church
in Vilnius made of Jewish metzevahs (gravestones) has been removed >from the
Protestant Evangelical Church that were placed there by Soviet authorities.
Under Soviet rule the building was turned into the Kronika cinema >from 1957
until 1990, when it was returned to Church ownership. The front stairway
made up of seven steps was installed when the conversion was carried out.
The world became aware in 2013 that the steps were made >from metzevahs.

After several years of working with the Lithuanian Cultural Heritage
Department and the Vilnius Protestant Evangelical governing council to
determine if the stairs were indeed taken >from Jewish cemeteries it was
determined the headstones were removed >from the Uzupis old Jewish Cemetery
in the neighborhood in Vilnius. Jewish headstones were used in the
construction of the stairs. The cemetery used to have tens of thousands of
burials but was razed in the 1960s; the gravestones were razed in the late
1940s.. It was then used for a quarry for building material. Many of the
headstones have been recovered and returned to the Uzupis Cemetery.

Trying to find student lists from Religious Schools in Berlin #germany

fredelfruhman
 

Hello,
I am wondering whether there are any databases with lists of students
who attended Jewish schools in Berlin in the 1930's.

Specifically, I am interested in the "Religionsschule der juedischen
Gemeinde" for the school year 1930-1931. Even more specifically:
the grade level called the "Unterklasse".

Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
