On 2006.01.2), B Mills <AZ61BROOK@aol.com> asked:

If a woman was adopted, and was not sure if her birth parents were
Jewish, would any of these tests show any information indicating
origins?
Would they show a possibility of Jewish ancestors, or possibly
another type of ancestor, such as Asian, Irish, German non-Jewish
ancestors?>>

The mtDNA test could show a maternal line haplogroup (major
population group descended >from a single remote woman ancestor) or
a specific haplotype pattern that would be suggestive of Jewish
ancestry, but in no way could a definitive result be expected.

Identification of the haplogroup could also point to the geographic
area where that particular maternal line originated

"Kollel Galicia" #galicia

As has been mentioned here before, the offices of Kollel Hibat Zion (120
Mea Shearin Street, Jerusalem) hold handwritten records of collections in
Galician towns and cities to help support the Galicianers living in
Jerusalem. These files are for the years ~1925-1938, earlier files
having been lost when the Old City fell.

The records of the collections are in two metal filing cabinets and are
arranged in eighty-three loose leaf folders in alphabetical order (Hebrew
letters). The purpose of this post is to advise that the list of
communties is now online at http://www.pikholz.org/KGal/Cabinet.html ,
with my best efforts at giving the town names in Latin letters. I am
quite sure that this can be improved upon but I would really appreciate
it if corrections were limited to certainties, not guesses. (We
already have enough of those.)

The actual records, which sometimes reflect several collections each
year, do not tell much more than the fact that a particular person lived in a
particular town in a particular year (and how much he contributed), but
there is additional information in some cases.

The records are generally in Hebrew, but at least a few years of Jaroslav
collections (and maybe others as well) have the names in Latin letters.

Although the kollel is a private organization and these files are not
public property, they are quite good about letting people come in and
look through them, although anyone doing so should be aware of their
sensibilities.

Their definition of Galicia is somewhat different >from ours, as it does
not include an arc of communities >from Buczacz to Skalat in the
southeastern corner of East Galicia. The files also include Karlsbad,
which while not being in Galicia, certainly had transient and/or ex-
patriate communities which would have supported the brethren in the Holy
Land. Files 84-85 include contributions >from German communities and that
list too is linked >from the above URL, with translation. (There seem to
be no such records >from the largest ex-patriate community in Europe -
Vienna.)

The kollel office also has journals with records of disbursements to
Galicianers in Jerusalem going well back into the 1800's and some burial
records which they say are not in the records of the Hassidic Burial
society.

JCR: Cornwall Road in London 1918 #unitedkingdom

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Jonathan,

In looking at a modern A-Z for London, I see that there are a total
of ten Cornwall Roads; four of them have London postal district
appellations: N4, N15, N18, SE1, while six are in the London suburbs:
Croydon, Esher, Harrow, Pinner, Sutton and Twickenham. If Jonathan is
fairly sure that the business was in London, then we can probably
disregard the suburb locations

I then looked at my pre-war (WW2) A-Z, I see that there are five
Cornwall Roads with postal district appellations: E2, N4, N15, SE1,
and W11.

E2 - a very short street in Bethnal Green/Mile End area. It ran
westwards off Braintree Street (still there today). It was renamed
Cornwall AVENUE in 1938.

N4 - this too is a short "one block long" street running east-west
between Lancaster Road and Oakfield Road in Finsbury Park. It is just
to the west of the park. It is still there today.

N15 - one mile NE of the N4 location. It runs north-south >from St.
Ann's Road to Green Road in the North Harringay area. It is still
there today

N18 - getting closer to the "'burbs." A "very" short street running
north-south >from Angel Road (A 406) to Fairfield Road. It is so small
that most maps don't name it, but it is the second one >from the right
going east >from Fore Street as one walks down Fairfield. Still there
today.

SE1 - this runs roughly north-south >from Upper Ground to The Cut in
Lambeth. This too is still there today.

So, Jonathan, which one? By the way, there is a Grodzinski's bakery
at the bottom of my road, Edgwarebury Lane, Edgware where my mother
gets her challah every week.

I have just found my grandfather Abie GRODZINSKI statement of
affairs drawn up after his death in 1918. Abie was aged 32 at the
time and was running the family bakery business in Fieldgate Street
in London's East End.

In the statement there is reference to rates and rent ....... also
to "107 Cornwall Road" (without any indication of where this was in
London). My late uncle told me that the family had had a shop in
West London at approximately that time.

I have looked at current Cornwall Roads, but before I start
investigating them, I would like to know whether there were others
in London in 1918. I have found an index of changed street names
but it is alphabetical according to current and not old names.

So can anyone help me find my grandfather's Cornwall Road? I think
that No. 107 would have been a baker's shop and may have had some
Jewish population nearby.

Re: JCR: 1891 Census - is there a street index? #unitedkingdom

Jonathan,

Am I right in thinking you are in London? If so, go to the Family Records
Centre in Myddelton Street (between Sadlers Wells Theatre and Mount Pleasant
Post Office) and on the first floor you can consult the census on microfilm
and, where available, online. They have the complete set of indexes which
will allow you to locate the correct page for a particular street very
quickly. The staff are very helpful and will show you how to use the
indexes if you have never used them before.
