Tolna county, Hungary #general

Gilda and Bob Kurtzman <gildak@...>
 

Recently there was a message on the "MavenSearch" list announcing a site
about the History of the Jews in Tolna county, Hungary. Perhaps it will
interest some of you.

It is about the settlement, history, culture, traditions and eventual
destruction of the Jewish community of Tolna county.

English Translation of Stammbuch der Frankfurter Juden #general

LRROBBINS@...
 

Good morning. I have been unable to locate a copy of the English Translation
of Stammbuch der Frankfurter Juden by Alexander Dietz which was published
about 1988 by Vanderher Publications Cornwall, UK ISBN 0-95141580-8. I would
like to purchase one. Does anyone know of a source? I have not tried
interlibrary loan since I am trying to purchase the book. I know that is an
option if I am unable to find a copy. Thank you for your help. Leonard

Re: Yedidya (and Modigliani) #general

Reply to message >from "Joseph Goldschmidt" <goldsmit@netvision.net.il>

Yedidya = Amadeus or Amede, French Amedee, Amadis; = Godolewa or Godelewa
feminine low German name; Gottlieb masculine German name.
A street in north Tel Aviv is named after the known Italian painter and
sculptor as "Amadeo Yedidya Modigliani", I am not sure that he himself
knew his Hebrew name.
Actually, he probably did. His surname, I am given to understand, is not
the one he was born with, but one that he adopted after an illness as a
way to express gratitude for his recovery: "Modeh leYah Ani" (=I thank
God) -- Say it fast, and see how it comes out; Italian-sounding enough to
fit easily into his milieu.

If he was able to devise this surname, he very likely knew his Hebrew name.
It may also give a clue to why this particular "Italian" artist has a street
in Tel-Aviv.

Help to obtain copy from Kolo? #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

Dear Genners

In mid September I found in JRI-databases a record >from Kolo, Poland that
with near certaincy is a link to an unknown part of our PRASZNICER
family. I ordered that film - and several others - >from Kolo but have not
yet received them. It takes 6-8 months to get ordered films to our little
FHC.

Patience is not my strongest point, so the 4 months since have streched
it to the limit.

Is there one of you out there in cyberspace, who has the Kolo, BDM
1869-77, film 1191088 in your local FHC? If yes, I would be extremely
grateful if you would help me with a photocopy of a marriage record >from
that film. I will reimburse your costs with an international reply-coupon.

Thanking you in advance

Records from the old Philadelphia Congregation Rodeph Shalom #usa

Janet Akaha <Akaha@...>
 

I have been attempting to put together a data base of about 800 marriage
records and 1200 circumcision records >from the Congregation Rodeph Shalom in Philadelphia. The circumcision records begin with several entries in Schwarza, Germany in 1835. The Philadelphia records are predominately from
1848 - 1864. There are also many records >from other small Philadelphia
communities and Trenton, NJ. The marriage records are roughly for this
same time period and are a very nice accompanyment to the circumcision
records.

I have already submitted a proposal to Jewishgen to host this database.

They have accepted my request and I am working to finish all of the data
entry. Everything in English has been entered. However, only about half of the Hebrew has even been sent to individuals to translate and so far I have only received about 10% completed.

I desperately need several more volunteers who can help translate the
Hebrew. It is essentially only the Hebrew name of the father and Hebrew
name of the son. This information is vital for the database as the
information in English in most cases only contains a father's first initi al
in script that is often hard for me to read and perhaps only 10% of the
birth records contain name of child.

If you are interested in helping I am even willing to go through and search
out certain surnames for you. (Meaning you can translate only those pages
that include surnames that you are interested in researching. ) This is
what I have been doing for the individuals that have been helping me. In total there are 102 pages and each page contains about 12 records.

Please write to me directly if you can help. I don't want to send a coup le
of pages at a time, but if you can do 10 or more I would love your
assistance.

Hi Judy


Normally I would expect to get a private message of this type, but since it
was "launched" in the Jewishgen forum, I'm happy to respond here.

On the female side there is a standard that was established 0 years ago
called the Cambridge Reference Sequence that looks at 400 base pairs near
the end of the mitochronia, which is provided to each person, male or
female, by their mother.

the red letters on our reports indicate places on the Cambridge Reference
Sequence that you differ. If two people differ in exactly the same place
and with the same letter then they have a female ancestor in
common. Please with several deviations >from the Cambridge Reference
Sequence are probably more closely related then those that just have 1
deviation that is common to another person.

The way we might express these deviations would be 189C ad 311T (means that
you have a deviation form the Cambridge Reference Sequence in both position
189 an 311 and that the deviation was by a C and T respectively) in that
way you can compare yourself to another person.

In the near future we will have built a phylogenic tree, and or search
that will allow people to see if someone else in our database matches your
deviations form the Standard. That would mean that those (that) other
person is a genetic cousin on the female side.

My certificate has ten columns numbered ten thru one-hundred and each

have one of these?

What is the Cambridge Reference Sequence and where can I go to read
up on it?

I hope someone sees this letter.
