murder in a rabbinical family descendant in Vienna about 1924 #rabbinic

Neil@...
 

Trying to find out information, grave location, obituary or news item
of the day on Milek Blankstein, son of Emauel (Munya) Blankstein who
murdered in Vienna about 1924. He was married to Berta and had a year
old daughter at that time (Ruth). Berta remarried (to Yaakov Chazan
founder of the Mapam party in Israel) and lived in Israel. Milek was a
maternal grandson of Rabbi Aleksander Schmelkes (1823-89), son of
Rabbi Haim Samuel Schmelkes, a descendant of the Rokeah rabbinical
family.

Re: FTDNA Family Finder #dna

Batya Olsen
 

This is not an FTDNA issue. This is a genealogy issue for any group
which has a history of intermarriage (ie: cousins marrying cousins.)
In any group that has limited candidates for marriage such as orthodox
Jews or Pacific Islanders or any isolated group, people may end up
marrying cousins - knowingly or unknowingly. Look up "endogamy".
(Sorry but I don't have the specific knowledge to explain this well.)
Endogamy means that our DNA matches often look closer than the actual
relation.

Re: FTDNA Family Finder #dna

rayvenna@...
 

There are two issues at work here. One is endogamy. Jews have been
intermarrying for more than 2,000 years, so everyone is literally
related to everyone else. FTDNA's FamilyFinder accounts for this by
applying an "Ashkenazi filter" to the results which should prevent
people >from appearing closer than they actually are. However, if you
have enough double cousin matches, you're still going to get results
that appear to be closer than they actually are.

The other issue is that autosomal DNA looks at all your ancestors. A
3rd cousin match could be along any line. Most Ashkenazi Jews don't
know all 32 of their 4th-great-grandparents. In addition a "2nd cousin
twice removed" could also potentially show up as a 3rd cousin match
(it's happened in my family).

In my experience, the most effective way to narrow down these results
is to test multiple known cousins and use DNA triangulation to identify
which branch the new "2nd-3rd cousin" is related to. The more known
relatives you have (giving you more data points), the more accurate your
analysis is going to be. It gets insanely expensive, but it does work.
I've identified a number of new branches using this method.

FTDNA is continually adjusting its filter as more people put their trees
online, so their results will improve as people continue to test.

Hi, everybody I wish the Family Finder could explain better how their
system works. I contacted some of the 2nd-3rd cousin matches, but as
happened with the original FTDNA matches nothing "matches," not names, not
towns.
When I see results with the words 2nd-3rd cousins and looks like high
Centimorgans to segments I assumed it falls into place as it does in
Ancestry. I am told that there are distortions or exaggerations in the
Family Finder results, yet on the other hand we know that "DNA doesn't lie."
So as of right now I am a bit stumped.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

In addition to all of the narratives, histories and remembrances of shtetl
life one finds in Yizkor books, I always take pleasure in coming upon "real
-time" accounts of how life and business was conducted (and adjudicated) in
the Jewish towns of Europe. Such an excerpt is ">from the Community Records
of Korelitz" (Karelichy) in Belarus. Here you see how "community chiefs" and
others dealt with a woman who traveled with a non-Jew without a chaperone,
tailors who overcharged for their goods, the struggles - especially for
those not well-off - of the obligation to provide ceremonial meals after a
circumcision or what to do about a Jewish man caught with a married women in
a closed room.

Viewmate: Did my great-grandfather Dawid RUSS have a sister? #general

David Scriven
 

I have a genealogical query that I would like some independent opinions
on. It concerns the RUSS family of Drohobycz & Boryslaw.

Until recently, all I knew of my grandfather Dawid RUSS's family was that
his father was called Eli (translation >from Hebrew); he was a wealthy
landowner and lived in Drohobycz (ca. 1906; all >from his son-in-law's
autobiography). With the release of the 1916 marriage records, I found
that Dawid had a brother, Jakob and, by comparison to an 1894 record,
possibly a sister.

All the that follows is gleaned >from various records:

Dawid RUSS, born ca. 1861 in Lancut,PL,parents: Ela and Chaji RUSS
Jakob RUSS, born ca.1869 in Boryslav,UA, parents: Ela and Chaji RUSS
Cipre Pessel RUSS, born ca.1866 in Boryslav,UA, parents: Elias RUSS
and Chaje PRESSBURGER

Extracts >from David & Jakob's records (in Polish) at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69600

Extract >from Cipre Pessel records (in German) at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69601

Outside of the extracts, I also found:

Elias RUSS (so written) is a witness on the record of Cipre-Pessel's
first child (1885)

Dawid RUSS (I recognize the signature) is a witness on the record of
Cipre-Pessel's third child (1888)

There is a signature of a Jacob RUSS (first name so spelt, surname
uses long German s) as witness to the father's acknowledgement of
parentage on two of the children's birth records born before the civil
marriage (the third had died)

An Elias RUSS, married landowner, died on 9 Dec 1915 in Drohobycz
at the age of 73 (birth ca. 1842) - he would have been old enough to
have fathered the three.

In the son-in-law's book it states that Eli Russ gained his wealth
through oil being discovered on his land (presumably in Boryslaw) and
prior to his move to Drohobycz.

Clearly, the mother's name could be the same, but is Ela RUSS, the same
person as Eli/Elias RUSS and is it likely that Cipre-Pessel, is Dawid and
Jakob's sister?

Jakob and Rifka FRISCH #germany

Juergen Nitsche <junitsche58@...>
 

Intro: JAKOB and RIFKA FRISCH

I am preparing an article for the Memorial Museum for euthanasia crimes
in Pirna-Sonnenstein. I am writing about the family FRISCH.

I try to reconstruct the life of the salesman Jakob FRISCH. He was born
in 1898 in Rozniatow (Russ.-Poland). His parents were:  Israel FRISCH and
Keyle REISS. He has a sister: Perl divored HILLMANN, married BERKOWITZ.

Since 1923 he was married with Rifka Regina KIRSCHEN (b. 1898 in Halicz,
Austr.-Poland). They married in Vienna.
Jakob and Rifka had two daughters: Erika (b. 1925) and Charlotte (b. 1928).

Jakob and Rifka FRISCH were divorced in 1938. Jakob was arrested in 1940
and brought into the concentration camp Sachsenhausen. He was killed in
1941 in Pirna-Sonnenstein. His former wife was killed before in
Sonnenstein. The daughters lived at last in Leipzig, >from where they
were deported in May, 1942 into the ghetto Belzyce.

I am looking for anybody, who knew the family FRISCH or could help me to
get more information about the life of bothers or sisters of Jakob or
Rifka. Dr. Friedel EICHHORN, b. GOLDHABER, was a nice of Jakob FRISCH.
She lived till her death in 2002 in Tel Aviv.

All advice and information are very welcome.
Thank you very much in advance!

Hi Reuven, thanks for this information.
I was also in Cluj this summer, but could not visit the cemetery.

I check and find out that the Jewish Cemetery in Cluj-Napoca is also
tagged in BillionGraves
https://billiongraves.com/cemetery/Cimitirul-Israelit/234632 Here you
can see a few images of the cemetery and it looks like is in good

This one I manage to photograph complete -261 photos- and now is being
transcribe by people able to read and write Hebrew you are all more
than welcome to help.

Back to Cluj, if you have photos of this cemetery, feel free to upload
them to BillionGraves so other people could transcribe them
https://billiongraves.com/cemetery/Cimitirul-Israelit/234632 If you
need help with this I will be more than happy to assist. Maybe we can

I also noticed that someone posted in BillionGraves records >from the
