Re: Whom to believe? The elusive father of Khuna Takhman #romania

the question posed:
I have no doubt that these are my ancestors but cannot reconcile between
the different names/dates. Any suggestion?
Dr Shimon Barak, Tel Aviv, Israel.

suggestions...the name Leib can reflect a later in life name change not
accounted for in earlier documents or a personal preference for how to be
addressed. When my aunt was seriously ill as a toddler her name was changed to
'avert the evil eye'...so the name she went through life with would be different
than her birth record. Her children would be known as children of the name
she used as an adult then, no?

As to the record of earlier marriage it is not so surprising to not know
about it if there are no active descendants or connections to it. I have seen
reference to a widower marrying someone but there are no clues as to who wife
number one was nor whether there were any children of that relationship. In
other situations There are records of widowers with children remarrying and
having more children with the next wife. I do not think there are any firm
guidelines on this. Just because we can't find the record doesn't mean something
did not occur.

As to different dates, genealogy has taught me flexibility. My grandmother
celebrated her birthday on a day one day different than the one on record, her
father has different years of birth recorded in the 1869 census and marriage
and later documents. My impression is that time was linked to events and if a
child was born during, say Pesach, that might be when the birth is noted,
not necessarily on the specific modern calendar date.

Rokiskis death statistics. Causes of Death in my families #general

Stephen Gaffin
 

Dear Cousins
There were some questions about the causes of death among my extraordinarily
long-lived GRACE PELLETZ JAFFE PULDA SCHWARTZBERG and ULMAN relatives in
Rokiskis in Linda Cantor’s latest table, published in the 1930s. Thirty
four causes of death were listed among our relatives as follows using quaint
medical terms no longer used:

“Old Age” 12
Heart Disease 6
Disease of Lungs 2
Disease of Kidneys 2
“Weakness” 2
Consumption/ tuberculosis 3
Cancer 1
Pneumonia 1
Trombophlebitis myocarditis 1
Influxion of blood in brain 1
Disease of brain 1
CA ventriculis (bowel cancer?) 1
“Vitium cardis” (heart disease ?) 1

“Old Age” of course in the above table simply means that the doctors had no
idea what system deteriorated so much that death ensued. For “Weakness”,
who knows?

Relatively few cancers (1 or 2) were reported among our Rokiskis family. It
is my recollection in our US family tree that relatively few died of cancer
[although one uncle did] but, similar to the Rokiskis statistics of 6 out
of 34, several of the US family, including my mother, died of cardiovascular
disease.

Currently, in the US [according to the CDC] the leading causes of death are
in descending order: heart disease, cancer, accidents, cerebrovascular
disease, diabetes, liver disease, influenza & pneumonia, diseases of
perinatal period, suicide, kidney diseases, HIV.

I wonder if it would be of interest to attempt to compile pooled data >from
all of you SIGers to see what diseases we are especially prone to and what
we appear to be inherently resistant to.

How do you know that?

Like in any science, and genealogy is one, IMHO,
the basis is uncertaincy, and "the truth" is per definition unreachable.

Instead of the truth, a peer review truce(!) is the best you can reach.

Striving to get near the truth is good, but if you cannot live with the
residual uncertaincy, take religion, not science.

Even if DNA testing was applied to your whole pedegree, only your

Please pay special attention to the first photo, taken at the wedding of
Paula BECKER and Julius ROUZEN, before 1939 and possibly in Danzig. If you
can identify the location as being in Danzig (perhaps, the mural on the wall
in the background, showing what looks like a harpist, might help
identification), or if you can identify any of the people in the photo,
please let us know.

Thanks very much to Tamar Amit for submitting these photos.

Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the train to
your summer home or to take off for the beach, please look at the
Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some very exciting talks and
events planned that morning that you won't want to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than keeping
everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we opted to
schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m. to
12:15 p.m.

If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary, Greece,
Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark secrets
about the criminals in your family's past, or find other "Jews in the
news"...

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research, or
conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more about Shoah
victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be spelled
that way)...

If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became "suddenly
Jewish"...

...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about Friday's
sessions on the Conference web site

www.jgsny2006.org/conference_program.cfm

One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The Jewish Chochka and
Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi Guber requests that registrants
bring family items, documents, photos, and ephemera to the conference. He
and a panel will help determine when and >from where the items originated and
any other secrets they may reveal about your family. Please remember to
bring along items for this exciting session.

Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!

EARLY REGISTRATION MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MAY 15, 2006 !!!
