LUBITZ FAMILY #lithuania

Bubbles Segall
 

I am assisting someone with their LUBITZ research. The All Lithuanian
Database (The ALD), has various spellings of this surname Liubedz,
Lubeciute, Lubets etc

This is what we have so far:

Itsyk Wulf LUBITZ had a son Akiva Leib LUBITZ (also known as Kivel
Leiba LUBITZ).

who married Pessie Alufovitz - she was born 1871)

They had the following children:

Joe LUBITZ born 1912 in Kupiskis, Lithuania - lived in Zimbabwe and
Australia
Chaia Ginda LUBITZ born 1905 in Lithuania
Rokhlia Elka LUBITZ both 1906 in Kupiskia, Lithuania.

We think that Akiva Leib LUBITZ and Pessie ALUFOVITZ possibly had
three more children who left Lithuania and went to the States at the
turn of the century. Two died early but an older brother changed his
name to LURIE - was known as Sol LURIE. He lived in Hammond, Indiana
in the 1960s and had no children.

Does anyone know anything about Sol LURIE or the two brothers who
died early?

Please respond privately.

TMRCA Quandary #dna

Adam Cherson
 

Dear DNA Researchers (especially the cladisticians among us),

I'd like to pose an abstract question drawn >from experience:

Suppose that person A, B, and C are all members of the same ydna
sub-haplogroup, J-P58.

Suppose persons A and B show a ydna TMRCA of 600 years.

Suppose persons A and C show a ydna TMRCA of 900 years.

Suppose persons B and C show a ydna TMRCA of 700 years.

How can these three results be made to cohere with each other? My logic
tells me that if A to B is 600 then A to C and B to C must be the same
(i.e., somewhere between 700 and 900). And yet the analytical result is
showing two different TMRCAs. May I conclude that the analytical result
is an artifact and that in fact the A to C and B to C TMRCAs are the
same? I would further speculate that the A to C and B to C TMRCA is 700,
since the B to C result likely excludes that it could be greater than
700, but the A to C result could well be lower than 900.

Now I understand that TMRCA results provide a probabilistic range curve
and that the actual MRCA in each case could fall anywhere within the
curve, but that is not the gist of my question and is irrelevant to what
I am asking here.

Let me put my question another way, just to be clear: Given a
hypothetical situation where it is known for certain that the TMRCA is
exactly 400 between persons X and Y, and exactly 800 between persons X
and Z, what then would that tell us about the TMRCA between persons Y
and Z? Doesn't the Y to Z TMRCA have to be the same as the X to Z TMRCA
(or 800 as posed in this hypothetical)?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Borisov Duma Voters List #belarus

Susan Slusky <segslusky@...>
 

Thank you to those who responded with contact information for Dr. Alexander
Beider. I heard >from Dr. Beider. He confirmed that if the surname Vorobej is
associated with the town Borisov in his dictionary, then there is a Vorobej
on the Borisov Duma Voters List.

Why is there no such entry in the JewishGen Belarus database? Apparently the
transliteration and indexing of that list was halted midway through. There
were expected to be 3331 entries on that list, but only 1596 were ever
transliterated.

I would like to continue the work of transliteration the Borisov Duma Voters
List. Does anyone on this mailing list have a digitized image of the voters
list >from which I can work? Do you know the specific issue of Minsk Vedomosti
in which the voters list was published?

seashells with gravestone-like inscriptions #general

Renee Steinig
 

My friend has two unusual heirlooms: seashells that are inscribed, in
raised lettering, with wording you'd see on a Jewish gravestone. One
shell memorializes Nachman ben Shmaryahu Elchanan, who died in 1904
(27 Adar 5664); the other is for Yente bat Yosef who died in 1909 (19
Nisan 5669). Above the names on each shell are words >from Lamentations
16:1 "Al eileh ani bochiya...."

My friend's late husband's grandparents were Morris (Moshe David)
Diamond and Yetta (Itke) nee Swidler, both born c. 1885. Morris
immigrated to the United States c. 1906, probably >from Vilna; Yetta
arrived >from Dunilovichi in 1907. They lived briefly in New York City,
then settled in the Boston area. Morris's father (Nachman) and Yetta's
mother (Yente) may well be the people who were memorialized on the
shells but without knowing fathers' names, we can't be sure.

Has anyone heard of such shells -- or of this family?

Thanks.
