Re: genetic diseases and genealogy #germany

Yekkey@...
 

Hi Joyce,

I feel uniquely qualified to answer your question. I am a Developmental
Pediatrician and have seen several cases of Tuberous Sclerosis. I am also
a Yekkey and interested in genetic diseases and genealogy, obviously that
is why I am on this list.

Unfortunately my computer is at home and my reference books are at my
office. My best reference is a book on Jewish genetic diseases published
over twenty years ago. That unfortunately is still in my house in
Rochester, New York >from where I am in the process of moving.

Off the top of my head I know of no increased ethnic incidence for
Tuberous Sclerosis.

My Rebbetzin here in Massachusetts is a Genetic counselor. I checked with
her and she had the same impression I did. We will both check our
references during the week.

I will be glad to answer any further questions privately. <yekkey@aol.com>
I also suggest that you search for a web site. There is a very active
parent support group, so I am sure there is a web site.

Best regards,

Mexico City Research and Contact Request #latinamerica

Aaron Slotnik
 

Hello List,

My grandfather Herman (Tzvi Hersch) Zlotnik emigrated >from Poland to Mexico
in the mid-1920s. I think he stayed in Mexico City for several years and
then went to meet up with his brother in New York City in December 1927. He
entered the United States through Nuevo Laredo and I have his passport and
visa. Where might he have entered Mexico and do any immigration or
passenger records exist?

In the 2001 Mexico City phone book, I found 2 names, Ana Necha Espinosa
Zlotnik and Aurora Espinosa Zlotnik, who are not my family. I also found a
Valdez Leon Zlotnik and perhaps his daughter Diana listed at the same
address. I'm thinking that Valdez Leon may be a cousin of mine. I'm
planning on writing to him, but before I do I was wondering if anyone on
this list who knows Spanish and/or lives in Mexico City, would be willing to
contact him to explore if we might be related. Please contact me privately
if you are willing to do this. Thanks in advance for any help or
suggestions you can provide.

Supporting JewishGen #general

Dear Genners,

At the last meeting of the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical
Society' Board meeting, it was decided unanimously that we would make
a donation to JewishGen to the amount of $500. This represents an
amount equal to $2 per member.

Although our funds are somewhat strained this year, we felt it is
important to help with an immediate cash infusion to insure that
JewishGen can provide the services we have, until now, taken for
granted.

Additionally, the SFBAJGS is currently engaged in transcribing 600
pages of cemetery ledgers >from two of the largest Jewish cemeteries
in Colma, where all the cemeteries in San Francisco were relocated.
Because of the 1906 earthquake and subsequent fire, all civil records
prior to 1906 were destroyed. The 600 pages equals some 14,000 names.

Although this is a long-term project, it will provide us with the
time to raise the funds to upload and maintain the list to JOWBR.

We look forward to seeing other JGSs join us in the important efforts
to not only retain, but further improve JewishGen.

SAZER Family Tree: (GENISHIER/ SACHS/ ZUBATCH) #general

Lisa
 

I am nearing completion of a SAZER Family Tree and would like to hear >from
anybody related to or interested in this family. There are two distinct
families in America with this name that are cousins to eachother.
Other variation spellings of the name Sazer include Sazir and Shazir.
Also included are the descendant charts of two of the Sazer daughters (born
circa 1870's) who married into the Sachs family that settled Newark, NJ and
the Genishier (Geneshier) family that settled in the Bronx, NY.
I have come across the unusual surname Zubatch while researching this family
and would be interested in hearing >from anyone who is researching that
family name.
Please contact me privately ASAP if you have any information about these
families.

Steve Morse's one-step to EIDB form improved upon again #belarus

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Title: Steve Morse's one-step EIDB form has been improved (again)

A couple of days ago I announced that Steve's blue (Jewish Passenger)
one-step form can re-sort the text version of the manifest so that
adjacent lines are together (the Ellis Island site presents the lines
all scrambled). Well I just noticed that Steve now provides that same
feature with his white (all passenger) search form. Furthermore, the
display of the results >from his white form has been changed so that it
now looks just like the results >from his blue form, making it much
easier to work with. That means you can get >from those results to the
manifest in just "one step" -- no need to first fetch the passenger
record on the way to seeing the manifest.

Steve tells me that he can't take any of the credit for this. All the
credit goes to Yves Goulnik in Switzerland who has performed two major
miracles in the seven days that he has been working with Steve.

To see the new format, go to Steve's white search form at

http://home.pacbell.net/spmorse/ellis/ellis.html


and start your search by clicking on the button that reads "search (new
format)". If you liked the old format better, Steve still has a button
to generate that as well.

Again, please if you have any questions or comments, please direct them
to Steve Morse. You can find his e-mail address on his websites.

Good hunting!
