Registration Saturday at IAJGS Conference #germany

Jeanette R Rosenberg OBE
 

Dear GerSIG

I spent much of the day today in the hotel lobby, watching my fellow
conference attendees arriving and greeting each other. There was lots
of happiness and laughter. Many of the conference attendees ventured
out and about today, record numbers to synagogue services, and others
to walk around Warsaw and in particular to the Polin Museum. Several
people traveled further afield, to visit Auschwitz.

Both Roger Lustig and Alex Calzareth - my GerSIG co-directors have now
arrived,and we have also met Malgosia Plosaj, our GerSIG invited guest
speaker.

We were all early in the line to register this evening at 7pm and have
spent much of the rest of the evening looking in more detail at the
conference schedule. We will be at the GerSIG table at the Share Fair
in the afternoon, and would encourage GerSIG members reading this who
are attending conference to come to see us to say hello, and to
collect their GerSIG ribbon.

I must close now, it's an early start for me, but I promise more
detailed information tomorrow.

All good wishes, Jeanette Jeanette.R.Rosenberg@googlemail.com

False Positives? #dna

David Goldman
 

Hello, everyone at the DNA Group. I was notified of a new "extremely high"
probability of a 3rd or 4th cousin match >from Ancestry with 102 centimorgans
on 7 segments. However, when I was in touch with that match we shared all
the family names we could think of and none of them were the same. The
"match" would mean that our grandparents or great-grandparents were first
cousins. My known last names go back to my great-great-grandparents, and
even a couple more beyond that. So given this "false positive" I would have
to strike this up to the fact of high endogamy among Ashkenazi Jews, such
that perhaps we had ancestors several hundred years ago who were the same.
But for purposes of genealogy for most of us, such speculation is probably
rather meaningless.

Note that Bertha and Selma are on an Alien page as US citizens with
last residence Texarkana Arkansas and other columns blank.

Dave may be on another page of the manifest, although usually it is
noted when another family member is on a different list.

More likely, Dave did not sail on this voyage with his wife and child.
Maybe Dave's name was on Bertha's ticket explaining the name
correction.

Dave obviously arrived earlier and became a US citizen so Bertha and
Selma arrived as US citizens whether or not they had ever set foot in
the US before and whether or not Dave accompanied them.

Search for Dave's arrival at least five years earlier, possibly with
his surname misspelled or misindexed.

Good luck!

Subject: Surprise discoveries in Kotzman (Cotmani, Kitsman), Bukowina
region Jewish records - MUNSTER and many others.
From: "Yohanan" <loeflery@netspace.net.au>

For years I believed that there were hardly any Romanian time
North Bukovina records (rather than Czernowitz) that survived...

----------------------------------------------

Excellent report, Yohanan! It's really tremendous to learn about your
success.

I have some northern Bukovina records >from the Family Search website
listed here:

https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/sadgura/reischtoronto.html

But I'll now go back and update it with your newest findings.
