Anglicized version of given name SCHAME #general

Joan Engel <jengel@...>
 

Schame DUBINER (age 20) immigrated to the US in 1908 with his
mother and brother. His mother Taube DUBINER became Tillie RUBIN.
His brother Scholem DUBINER became Charles RUBIN. As every other
family member also took the name RUBIN, we assume Schame did too.
But what would he have used for a first name? All guesses appreciated!

Joe,

There is no Jewish Genealogical presence in Charleston, SC. The 3
synagogues have records of the Jewish cemeteries and there is a Jewish
Community Center, but no cemetery attached. The addresses for the 3
synagogues are:
KK Beth Elohim (Reform)
86 Hassell Street
Charleston, SC 29401

Brith Shalom Beth Israel (Orthodox)
182 Rutledge Ave
Charleston, SC 29403

Synagogue Emanu-El (Conservative)
5 Windsor Dr
Charleston, SC 29407

The oldest Synagogue is KK Beth Elohim Dating >from 1749. It was originally
Orthodox, but is now the Cradle of Reform Judaism and the oldest Reform
Synagogue in the World.

Hope this helps you.

Re: Slovakian Jewry - emigration patterns? #general

AK <alan.kolnik@...>
 

Thanks to the many people who gave me leads on this.
For those struggling with the same matter, take a look at this map
(it is found in several other places on the web as well):

http://www.chalem.com/genealogy/maps/migration.htm

- it indicates that Jews migrated to the north east out of "Hungary" and
"Austria" in the 1300's and 14-00's, so could easily have continued
later - say in the 1600's and 1700's, landing up in "poland"

Breast Cancer Gene and Genealogy #galicia

Shelly Crane
 

Dear Fellow Genealogists,

I have been doing genealogy research for many different reasons. One in
particular is to search for relatives who might also have the same genetic
mutation that I've inherited >from my mother: the Breast Cancer-1 gene and
specifically the 185delAG mutation. Breast, ovarian and prostate cancer are the most
likely types of cancer that occur with this gene. It appears that this
common mutation has been found among the Ashkenazi Jewish population and
presumably originated form a single ancestor many moons ago! With that said, if
you have this specific gene mutation and/or a family history of these cancers,
it would be great to compare notes and perhaps find our ancestral links,
particularly if we share common surnames...see below.

My maternal relatives lived in the Suwalki-Lomza area of Poland, but who
knows where they originated 200-300 years ago and beyond. Consequently, I'm
posting this in more than one sig digest.
Please respond privately.

Galicia Luncheon - New Date - Thursday #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero
 

The Gesher Galicia Luncheon is now scheduled for Thursday, July 14, 2005.
The Conference Committee had to change it for logistical reasons. I hope
that this will not inconvenience anyone.

As far as I know, the only conflict will be with the Latvia SIG Luncheon. I
think that you can still register for the Galicia Luncheon.

There are several Galicia programs on Thursday, so it will be a good day to
meet together for lunch.

The Galicia events are as scheduled, according to the preliminary schedule
(although the luncheon date has not yet been updated). Any further changes
will be made to the Daily Planner and I will report them to you. Hopefully
there will be no more changes. See the Daily Planner at
http://www.jewishgen.org/lv2005/planner.htm

Galicia BOF 5:00 pm Monday
