Should companies change default sorting to largest segment? #dna

Benjamin First
 

Dear all,

Firstly thank you to whoever suggested looking at those with largest
segments rather than total cm's a few months ago. By sorting by
largest segment on gedmatch and FTDNA I found a 2nd cousin twice
removed at the top of the list on gedmatch and a fourth cousin at the
top of the list on FTDNA. Both had a largest segment of around 40cm
but no other segments over 20cm. Until then I had had lots of false
positives. This makes me think that it might be an idea if the
testing companies and gedmatch sorted by largest segment as the
default sort at least for those in an endogamous population (would it
do any harm even for those without endogamous DNA?). Does anyone
else think this is a good idea to suggest to them?

Many Thanks

Ben First

About ROMANN Family, in Trautenau #austria-czech

cyril.bielschowsky@...
 

I search any information about the ROMANN family in Trautenau (Trutnov),
Bohemia, now in the Czech Republic.

Louis ROMANN (1832, place ? / 1921) is the first I know about. Name of
his wife ? His parents ? Any brother or sister ?
He had a firm : he owned and run "Die Leinen- und Baumwollwebereien in
Parschnitz" (Linen and cotton weaving factory, now Porici, near Trutnov).

He had a daughter :
My great-grand-mother Rosa ROMANN (born 06.06.1872, Trautenau /
19.12.1912, Oels-Olesnica, Poland).
She married Karl BIELSCHOWSKY and established in Oels, Schlesien,
Prussen (now Poland).

He had two boys :
Siegfried ROMANN (date ?) married with Gertrud HEPNER (father Max H.,
banker c.1849-1926, mother Gertrud KUZNITZKY).
Together, they had Hugo (died 1919, WWI) and Friedrich (1900-1969 ?,
Israel). No grand-child.
Oscar ROMANN (1871, Trautenau -1919) married with Ella GLUECK (1881,
Koenigshuette / 1972, Ramat Gan, Israel)
Together, they had Hans (1907, Koenigshuette - 1972, Israel).
Grand-children in Israel.

Does anyone have informations about this family (ancestors ? Dates ? =
Places ? Professions ?) ?
Do you know where I could find Trautenau's address books ?
Do you know where I could find birth and death registers ?

(sorry for my bad english, I'm french)
Best regards, Cyril BIELSCHOWSKY
