Re: YDNA upgrades #dna

rayvenna@...
 

Both the 67 marker test and the BigY test will give you more detailed
information about how closely you Opinheim and the Brest-Litovsk line
are related. The BigY test gives *incredibly* detailed information,
but is (IMHO) difficult to interpret. It is worth it, however, if you
are in one of the projects that is working on interpreting BigY data.
You can find that out by sending e-mails to the managers of the Y-DNA
projects to which you belong.

Please keep in mind that none of the estimates on how long ago two
lines genetically diverged are "engraved in stone" at this point.
"BigY" type tests are at the cutting edge of DNA genealogy research.

Have fun,

Mindie Kaplan

Hi,
Through the magic of DNA I learned that my gr-grandfather's Opinheim
line matches the YDNA of someone whose family is in Majorca and has
lived there at least as far back as the 1600s.

My gr-grandfather was born about 1825 in Brest-Litovsk, Belarus, quite
a distance >from Majorca. My cousin did the YDNA test at 37 markers
and is in the Iberian-Ashkenaz Project and the J1 Project. It has
been suggested that the YDNA test be upgraded to 67 markers and that
we also do a BigY test.

What would we learn >from the BigY? Where do we go >from here?

Danzig Jewish Genealogy Survey - reminder #germany #poland #danzig #gdansk

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

This is a reminder to Danzig researchers to please complete the short
Danzig Jewish Genealogy Survey at
https://goo.gl/forms/HQddpV0Eklq53tNH2 . Your response will impact
which records are acquired, transcribed, and added to the searchable
Danzig Database next, in what order. For example, if your family
first arrived in Danzig in the 20th century, you are probably more
interested in 20th century records than pre-surname 18th century
records, and this is an opportunity to say so and encourage us to
prioritize 20th century records higher. This is especially important
for Danzig because of the distinct waves of Jewish immigration. I
will leave the form open through the end of October. Thanks to
everyone who has already completed it, your responses are very
helpful.

Name Index Updated for Online Danzig Records, 1846-1927 #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

The name index for online 1846-1927 Danzig records, at
http://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/findingaidpsa1497.php, now covers
almost 1,600 records. If you haven't checked it since the initial
announcement, look again. This index will continue to be updated
until complete, as a relatively quick initial step to full indexing of
the records. Note that this index does not include even all the
surnames >from the records (e.g., mother's maiden names in birth
records are not included), so it is far >from a substitute for full
indexing, but it can help you to find many records before the full
index is ready. Also note that this index has not been proofread.

Does anyone know how I can get photos of two gravestones in the Laurel Grove North
Cemetery in the city of Savannah, Georgia? The two gravestones of interest are
not included in the FindAGrave database records, but I found them in the
Interment.net database.

Thanks for any help.

IGRA's Heshvan Event for International Jewish Genealogy Month #general

Elena Bazes
 

In celebration of International Jewish Genealogy Month, during the Jewish month of
Heshvan, the Israel Genealogy Research Association is happy to invite you to attend
our annual Heshvan Event on November 27,2016 >from 4:30pm to 7:30pm at Beit Wolyn,
the Yad Vashem Library and Research Center, 10 Korazim Street, Givatayim.

Our program will begin with an introduction to Beit Wolyn by
Librarian, Chani Gat. Ms. Gat's introduction will be followed by two lectures:

Reuniting Families presented by Ms. Susan Edel (in English)

Susan Edel will demonstrate how Magen David Adom works to reunite families or to
find out information about family members with whom all contact has been lost,
using methods and databases which can also be used in genealogy. Susan will give
examples of several success stories whereby the Tracing and Restoring Family Links
Department of Magen David Adom, in cooperation with the International Red Cross,
has reunited families, mainly Holocaust survivors.

Susan Edel was born in London, England. She came on Aliya in 1975 and has been a
volunteer in Magen David Adom since 1989 working on the ambulances for about 20
years. She now volunteers in MDA's Tracing and Restoring Family Links Department
helping to reunite families.

Completing the Missing Chapter in the History of Our People: Ethiopian Jewry
presented by Mr. Dotan Levy (in Hebrew)

Dotan Levy will speak about his trips to Ethiopia, where the common goal was
understanding how the story of Ethiopian Jewry is the story of all of our people.
Dotan will tell several stories about Ethiopian immigrants, including the story of
Mesrat, a girl of 12, who came on Aliyah without her parents and did not know what
happened to them. They travelled back to Ethiopia to find them. Another story is
about a special Ethiopian woman, who was abducted in Sudan 30 years ago and finally
came on Aliyah a year ago. Dotan will also speak about his own family's trip to
Ethiopia last Passover. His family went to Ethiopia to feel redemption and to
identify with the 9,000 remaining Jews.

Dotan Levy is originally >from Bat Yam. For the past ten years, he has been the
Director of Derech HaKfar, an organization which guides educators in their work
with immigrant youth and youth at risk. Throughout his career, Dotan has maintained
contact with the Ethiopian community.

As we do every year, in addition to great lectures, we will be honoring our
volunteers who have assisted IGRA to do all of its great work over the past year.

Refreshments will be served. Pre-registration is recommended as space is limited.

Cost: Until November 13, IGRA members-NIS 40, non-member-NIS 60.
After November 13, IGRA members-NIS 50, non-member-NIS 70.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

This week's excerpt, >from the Yizkor book of Dusiat, Lithuania stylistically breaks
the mold of most of the excerpts published here. Instead of a chapter written by
one contributor, Sara Weiss-Slep - inspired by the many stories her father had told
her - visited reunions of many Dusiaters, gathered their memories, and created this
chapter to read as if the narrators are gathered together and, in much the same way
as in the old days, are sharing memories with one another, adding and intertwining
their words with those of others. The result is a wonderful evocation of life in
this shtetl, particularly about the food. And, at the end, there is a bonus recipe
for Dry Teiglach.
