EPSTEIN Family Y-DNA Study #general

Itzhak Epstein
 

Several Epsteins have joined in a Family Tree DNA
- JewishGen surname project. Painless
mouth swab genetic testing procedures are being
used as a promising tool for breaking through
our genealogical brick walls. It might help you
to greatly expand your family tree, and may
also help our surname project.

We have identified members of one paternal
lineage that has borne the Epstein surname
for several centuries. There are hints of another
old line. Most of the project's current
members, however, are patrilineally unrelated to
each other. In addition, most of us have
discovered patrilineal relationships to men whose
surnames are not Epstein.

We are working on identifying the various
branches of our principal cluster, on exploring
additional clusters, and on connecting our
unrelated members to cousins. To accomplish these
goals and to create as broad a search as
possible, we need more male Epsteins to contribute a
cheek swab as a DNA sample. If you are female
Epstein or an Epstein through female ancestors,
a sample >from an Epstein male relative can
represent your family in the test. If you are not an
Epstein, please share this message with Epsteins
who may want to participate in this project.

To join, go to
http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join.asp?code=R56553&special=true
The basic, and most affordable, twelve marker
test will indicate to whom you are probably
related. The more advanced tests could help to
identify closer and more certain relationships.
You can start with the 12 marker test and add to
it at a later date, using the same sample.

If you have any questions, please contact Marsha
Epstein, our project's volunteer administrator at
<epsteindna_admin@earthlink.net>

Chana Jaffe STEINZEIG and Chane Baranowicz STEINZEIG - same woman? #general

Charlotte Steinzig <adazig@...>
 

Chane JAFFE STEINZEIG (? Polotzk, Russia. Married to
Abraham Steinzeig. Chane BARANOWICZ STEINZEIG, also
married to an Abraham Steinzeig. Possibly >from Lomza,
which is sometimes Russia and sometimes Poland. I've
read as much as I find near at hand about naming
traditions. Steinzeig is such an unusual name, it
seems, that it also seems unlikely these are not the
same women. Any guidance appreciated. Thank you.

ROSENTHAL in Britain #general

Walter Rosenthal <rwrx@...>
 

Background: My father, Samuel ROSENTHAL, was born in NYC in 1890. His
parents obviously arrived sometime earlier. Both his birth and marriage
certificates list his father's name as Wolf and his mother's maiden name as
Annie Rosenthal, the same as her husband. My grandmother (Annie) told me
that she came >from Europe through England. Her cousins who remained in
Britain who had no direct memory of her

Question: Which sources can I use to determine the possible British
embarcation ports in 1888-1890. This might give me the ships' names, each
ship's manifest, which could then provide my grandparents' European home
town? If I can locate the town, then further research might bring me closer
to finding my roots.

Any help will be most appreciated.

Hello Vivian,

I may be out of date, and have not followed all info.
Location and cost of the IAJGS conference?
Is anybody going to create a video-tape of your session on Hungarian
research? Something that could be distribuuted to those not able to attend? Video,
or other distribution may be of interest to others as well.

New Online Budapest Resource #hungary

Rebecca Fenning <rutabegatree@...>
 

Hi all,

Yesterday I happened to check Janos Bogardi's Radix Log
<www.radixlog.com> and was greeted by a posting of his >from just a
couple days ago, announcing the release of a new database >from the
Budapest Municipal Archives (Budapest Fovaros Leveltara). As Janos
described, the database (located at <http://tarstort.bparchiv.hu/
tarstort/simplesearch.html>:

"...contains metadata about the documents in the holdings of the
archives, covering the following subject areas:
- Probate cases (provenience: court records, public notaries'
records), 1915-1955, full coverage.
- Various records of public notaries, 1875-1950. As of now, the
period of 1875-1900 is covered the most in the database.
- Cases at various courthouses in Budapest, 1872-1895. The Court of
Budapest is fully processed.
- Last wills and testaments, 1896-1950, fully processed, the period
of 1699-1873 is under processing.
- Orphans' courts' records, first records planned to be released in
2006. "

I have already queried the database for several of my family names
with some definite and very promising hits - this looks like a
fantastic resource for those of us with family in Budapest. However,
everything is in Hungarian, which makes it a little more difficult
for those of us whose knowledge of Hungarian is practically nil... I
don't know how copies of the original documents can be requested >from
the archive, nor do I know anything more about the source materials
than was described at Radix Log. But maybe one of you folks who
knows more Hungarian than I do (which isn't hard because I know about
5 words!) can elucidate us all... :)

I will be going to Salt Lake City in June. I will have only about 1/2

Thank you in advance.
