What does this tell me? #dna

Genealogy BLW
 

I had the autosomal DNA and the full mtDNA tests performed by
Family Tree DNA.

My results: 100% Jewish Diaspora (no surprise) and Haplogroup H5c2.
The 2 exact matches (HVR1, HVR2, and coding region) are both >from
Germany. As far as I have traced my family, I have two branches
back to 1800, and all ancestors have been in Poland or Galicia.

The closest autosomal match was someone with Finkelstein >from
Ostrowiec in his background as have I, but we don't have enough
information to identify a common ancestor.

I had guessed that at least one side of my family settled in
Germany fairly early, but I don't know what "early" means.

So what do the above results mean? What else can I do to make
sense of them?

Thank you,

Short film "Goodbye Carpathia" #subcarpathia

Todd Edelman <edelman@...>
 

"Goodbye Carpathia" (2014)

A group of Carpathian-born Israelis visit their former home, reflecting
on the Shoah, return (of their parents) and their later emigration...

Are the scenes in the pedestrian street in Mukacheve or Uzhhorod?

Todd,

This year a group of former students returned to Munkacs (Mukacheve) to
commemorate the Hebrew Gymnasium (High School), the purpose of the trip.

Looking at the film---using the time line---the following is provided:

Time - Description

0.49 - You will notice the roof line, unchanged, at the entrance of the
Munkacs Ghetto. A photo of this building can be seen on the Mukacheve
KehilaLink web site.

< http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Mukacheve/ >

1.17 - Uzhhorod (Ungvar)

1.48 - Uzhhorod Grand Synagogue, today a Philharmonic Hall. More photos
van be found on the Uzhhorod KehilaLink web site:

< http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Uzhhorod/ >

1.56 - He talks about Vynohradiv (Nagyszollos), but I think the stadium is
in Uzhhorod.

4.39 - Hebrew Gymnasium (High School), in Mukacheve

6.08 - Munkacs Castle

6.31 - New Munkacs cemetery

10.47 - Uzhhorod Chabad synagogue

11.18 - Street scenes in Uzhhorod

11.38 - Drinking the local summer drink, "Kvas" (nothing like Cool Aid)

12.19 - More Uzhhorod scenes

16.36 - Foot bridge over the Uzh river in Uzhhorod

Hope this helps,
Marshall Katz

lost SHULMANS #ukraine

Deborah Friedman <dsfaec@...>
 

I am trying to locate the siblings of my great grandmother (Dina
SHULMAN FRIEDMAN). She was born in Chernovitz and later moved to
Kopaigorod, Ukraine to live with her husbands family. Her husband was
Israel FRIEDMAN, son of Ephraim FRIEDMAN and Hinda PODGAITZ.

Dina was the daughter of a rabbi, Avraham SHULMAN and his wife Edith
and had 3 siblings, Alec, Itzak and Brucha (who was married to a
pharmacist named ZUCKERMAN).

I found a tiny note in my aunts files that said "Dina's siblings all
killed in Zhmerinka".

I know that there were children of these siblings living possibly in
Brazil. One such family might be: Samuel Schullman, his wife Sarah
TABACOW SCHULLMAN and their two children Iza and Isaac.

I am trying to find out WHEN he Shulman siblings died in Zhmerinka and
find some documentation regarding their deaths if possible as well as
to make connections to any living cousins.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Need translation from Russian of evacuee cards for SELESTEAN and ELKIN #romania

Patricia Klindienst <epk13@...>
 

I've uploaded five images of evacuee cards to View Mate and need full
translation >from the Russian for each of them.

The three links below are for evacuee cards filled out by the same
person for three members of the SELESTEAN family of Capresti, Romania
(formerly in Russia) who passed through Tashkent Station in 1941-1942.
First, number 677, is Zelik SELESTEAN. Next is Chayka (Chaya) LYUBARSKI
SELESTEAN, his wife, 678. And last is Mina (Mihkail), their son, 679.

I'd like to know every detail of what is written on these cards.

I have found testimony sent to Yad Vashem by Eva SELESTEAN ELKIN for
Zelik (her father) and Mikhail (her brother) but not for her mother,
Chayka. I hope there may be information on these cards that will help
me trace more of the family?s story during and after the war.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38472

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38473

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38474

The last two links are for evacuee cards that may be for Eva?s husband, Avram ELKIN.
Avram (Abram) and Eva lived in Capresti, Romania in the 1920s. I know that Eva survived
the war, but I do not yet know if Avram did. Eva?s testimony for Yad Vashem indicates
that she got out of the Soviet Union and arrived in Israel in 1973 or 1974.

I would like word by word translations of these cards so I can compare the information
with other details of Avram?s life to see if one of these is, in fact, the person I'm looking for.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38475

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38476

If anyone has ideas for how to trace Eva SELESTEAN ELKIN and her descendants in
Israel, please let me know.

advice for newbies #dna

Anita Berk <amberk@...>
 

I am brand new to this and ready to have testing done.
I know Jewishgen recommends Family Tree DNA but it seems that there's
a lot of people that like 23and me.
Would anyone be willing to give me some advice?

Also, if I ask cousin Joe to test, does he get the results or do I?
Once you have results, is it portable to other databases?

How do you approach family regarding testing?

I'll take any suggestions you may wish to offer.

Thanks,
Anita Berk

Rabbi Fajwel HOFFER #rabbinic

Walter Elias <wselias79@...>
 

I am trying to locate descendants of a Rabbi Fajwel (Favel) HOFFER b.
1862 in Biala Podlaska, Poland. He arrived alone in NYC on the ship
LeHavre 1 Dec 1926. The ship manifest indicated he was visiting his
son Hyman GAFFER or GAFFEN. His naturalization papers indicate he was
a widower and had been married to Frieda b. 1883 and had children
Hyman, b. 1884 and Gertrude, b. 1910. The 1930 Census shows him living
with his daughter Gertrude, age 20.
I am trying to locate any further information about Rabbi Fajwel
(Favel) HOFFER and would like to make contact with his descendants as
they are possible relatives of my wife's family.
