Re: DNA match to me but not my parents #dna

My experience as a descendant of eastern European Jews is that if
your longest block of shared dna is 9 cMs, you are unlikely to be able
to prove a relationship between this neighbor because the records do
not go back far enough.
I do not disagree, although have a known Ashkenazic third cousin, with a
common ancestor born ca. 1825, whose longest shared block with me is 9 cM.

She is an outlier, and her brother's longest shared block with me is 15
cM, but still, I think it's worth keeping in mind.

Sarah Mayer <sarahmayer22@...>
 

Dear fellow jewish genealogy subscripters.

I am looking for information about the family of my grand-mother Nacha
Bernard born Wolman in Gabin (Gombin) Poland in 1907.

She was the daughter of Tobjasz Wolman and Balka Goldman. I don't know if she had
siblings. She moved to France and married my grand-father Raphael Bernard in
Paris in January 1931. He was born in Wloclawek Poland in 1904. Both of them were
deported >from France to Auschwitz where they died in 1942.They had two children. My
father was the only survivor of the family.

I would like to know if anyone has information about the Goldman and Wolman
families >from Gabin, especially about possible siblings or cousins of my
grand-mother. I found that a Wolman family >from Gabin emigrated to the USA at the
beginning of the 20th century but I don't the relationship with my grand-mother.

I posted the only photograph that I have of her. It was taken in Paris
in 1932. On the right is my grand-father Raphael and on the left his
brother Luzer that also died in Auschwitz after being deported from
