We invite members and non-members of Gesher Galicia to share their
family stories, short scholarly reviews and other accounts. Examples
may include: Jewish military service; ordinary life during the war;
refugee status; deportations to Russia; campaigns sweeping through
Galicia.

Prior to submission, prospective authors are encouraged to contact
Joshua Grayson at serieseditor@geshergalicia.org with a brief
description of their proposal. All accepted articles will undergo

Raduraksti lookup #latvia

Jennifer Mendelsohn <jennifer@...>
 

Hi all. I was wondering if anyone was able to do a lookup for me.

Itzig HIRSHOWICH and Hanna/Hena AGAT are listed on the Bauska Jewish
family list in 1874 with an infant child, born in February 1874. Itzig
is listed as being 23, she 22, so I am assuming they likely were married
not too long before, and definitely not before about May of 1873.

I unfortunately cannot read Hebrew or Russian. Would anyone be able to
peruse the first few pages of 1873 marriages to see if they are listed?
Or perhaps even 1872? I would be so grateful. I am trying to see if
Itzig's mother's maiden name is recorded anywhere. Her first name was
Scheine; his father was Yehoshua.

Thank you!

Naming Bottleneck Russian Empire 1820-1850 #belarus

Adam Cherson
 

Dear Researchers,

I have encountered an enigma wrapped in a riddle shrouded in a mystery.

There is enough evidence available to make a deduction feasible.

The matter involves that name of my 2XG-Grandfather and the anomalies
created by the combination of the naming laws and attempts to evade the
conscription laws in the Russian Empire during the first half of the
19th Century.

Since this is a matter that affects many genealogists studying this
period of history, I would like to share the evidence and ask for
interpretations.

In a nutshell, my ancestor is registered in the 1858 Revision List in
the middle of the Solts family under the surname Portnoi. The question
is whether he is a member of the Solts family attempting to conceal his
identity.

I have copied and pasted several relevant records >from the Jewish
Genealogy Database showing the facts:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/sd8vkfrybr8jo8j/Solts_Portnoi.pdf?dl=0

Following the records are some research notes providing some extra
background and speculations.

Please consider posting your responses here for the benefit of others.

Appreciatively,
Adam Cherson

Re: which kit to use #dna

charles goldenzon
 

Roberta,

This is a tricky question. The most appropriate test depends on a person's
research strategy. Some comments, though:

An autosomal DNA (atdna) test (the most common and cheapest) will help you
find cousins and these may in turn, provided they also researched your
common family branch, help you break through some of your brickwalls.
Ancestry has by far the largest user data base so you will be compared
with a wider universe. In addition, you can later transfer your data (for
free) to FTDNA, MyHeritage and Gedmatch. You will not be able to do the
reverse because neither Ancestry nor 23andMe accept this. In short, if you
decide for the atdna test, i would use Ancestry and transfer the data
afterwards to FTDNA, MyHeritage and Gedmatch.

Ydna and mtdna tests are appropriate for researching your direct paternal
and maternal lines. These are very good tests, but more expensive and are
only available through FTDNA. One could do an atdna with FTDNA and, if
there are brickwalls left in your direct paternal and/or maternal lines,
purchase an upgrade without having to submit another sample. This can only
be done with FTDNA, however, and you will not be able to transfer your
atdna data to Ancestry (still able to transfer to MyHeritage and Gedmatch).

As you see, not "one size fits all" scenario. One additional comment is
that the atdna strategy is greatly enhanced by testing various individuals
and not only one. Who these other individuals should be depends on your
strategy. For example, if you are researching your paternal branch, it
would be useful to test your father and if he's not available, then you,
your siblings and 1st cousins >from your paternal side. By doing this you
increase the likelyhood of matching other people (in addition to these
relatives, of course). If your father is available, test him. Same goes
for your mother. Better still, grandparents if you have them available.
