Lithuanian vital records available online #general

Dorothy Leivers <dorfleiv@...>
 

FamilySearch has added a significant number of digitized records to
its online collections. This includes the Jewish vital records for
Lithuania which were filmed many years ago. Please be aware that not
every record in the Lithuanian archives was filmed. Check the All
Lithuania Database https://www.litvaksig.org/search-ald/ for the Film
number which appears on the record for your family member and by using
the information on the database, you should be able to find the
original image. These records are not indexed on FamilySearch. On
FamilySearch, go to Catalog, https://familysearch.org/catalog/search
Type in the town name, then select Jewish records. If the images are
now available online, you should see a little camera symbol which is
the link to the images. These records have been databased by LitvakSIG
so use the All Lithuania database to help you find the record you are
looking for and the information of genealogical interest which has
been extracted >from that record.

Re: Rudolph FREUND and Rosa BRAUN #general

Vivian Kahn
 

The name WERNIZIANER does not appear in any records in the JewishGen
Hungary database, which leads me to suspect that the name was originally
VENETIANER. Hungarian version of Michael would be Mihaly. The database
includes lots of records for BRAUNBERG and VENETIANER. I didn't find
any records that listed both names and didn't find any records for
VENETIANER Mihaly but you might look for these names in other sources. I
also suggest looking for Rosa's birthplace in passenger manifests or
naturalization records.

I am looking for information on Rudolph FREUND and Rosa BRAUN.
Rudolph and Rosa were married on 1 September 1897 in Manhattan.

Rudolph was born approximately 1865 in Bohemia to Abraham FREUND and
Theresa POLLAK. His brother Alois was born in Krchleby; I do not
know if Rudolph was born there too. Rudolph immigrated to the US In
1881.

Rosa was born in Hungary in 1862 to Michael WERNIZIANER and Rosa
BRAUNBERG. FamilySearch website lists the marriage and indicates
that she was a widow, thus accounting for a family name that is
different >from that of her parents.

Surname INGBERG #general

In researching the surname INGBERG, I often come across the name GINCBERG.
While I know the many interpretations of a name may vary by language, I
wonder if there is a way to know if these two names are actually related?

spurious DNA match #dna

Arnold Chamove <arnoldchamove@...>
 

I recently found a very close autosomal DNA match with me on FamilyTreeDNA.
This person is a closer match to me than I am to my sister, and he is a
closer match to my sister than she is to me. We were born early 1940 in
San Francisco, California and he was born in Maine 45 years later. His
ancestry says 3% Jewish, 50% British, and 33% French/German; while my
sister and mine are reported as 95% Jewish (which is reasonable). My sister
and I share 2516 centimorgans (cM) while this man shares about 3384 cM and
similar with both me and my sister.
I assume such a close relationship can only if he and I share the
same parents--both parents. But we do not. Both my parents were dead when
he was born. This man is clear who his mother is. My sister and I look a
lot like our parents and not a lot like this man.
Is there explanation other than that the three of us share the same
parents?

Thanks
