(Iceland) Genetic Tests Show Clues to Disease-Causing Genes #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As DNA is a genealogy tool more of us are using in our family history
research this New York Times article >from the March 25, 2015 issue, In
Iceland's DNA, New Clues to Disease-Causing Genes, may be of interest-even
though it is disease-oriented rather than the types of DNA tests we use in
genealogy. The study showed the nation's genetic makeup with previously
unknown gene mutations. The NY Times reported on a series of papers
published in the journal, Nature Genetics
(http://www.nature.com/ng/index.html).

The study sequenced 2,636 individuals >from Iceland-which characterized
patterns of genetic mutations and demonstrated the usefulness for genetic
discovery for several diseases, including those that show an increased risk
for Alzheimer's Disease, breast cancer, gallstones, leukemia. Atrial
fibrillation, and other diseases.

The scientists have full genomes >from 10,000 Icelanders and partial
information >from another 150,000. The scientists are continuing to study the
Icelanders. The government is not allowing the scientists to inform the
individuals of their increased risk of specific diseases due to gene
mutations.

Iceland, is a small country, founded by settlers >from Scandinavia, Ireland
and Scotland arriving about 1100 years ago. Many Icelanders can trace their
ancestry back to the country's earliest arrivals making the country a
desirable community for genetics research, as their residents have a low
level of genetic diversity.

The scientists who did the study are >from Decode a genetics company that
today is owned by Amgen..

Archival documents sought for failed international adoption in the 1930's #general

Rachel S Goodman
 

Dear All,
My uncle Joe and his wife Celia (surname GERRISH) went back to the
Vilna area to visit his parents and family in 1931. They met his
sister and her two boys (surname REMZ). They decided to adopt the boys
and arrange for them to come to New York City. My mother said that the
adoption fell through, but she did not know why. I can think of the
stricter immigration laws after the mid-20's, but would like to see
any documents concerning their particular case. Does anyone know what
agency in the US might be involved in this request for adoption, what
agency would be involved if immigration was denied, and where the
documents might be archived?

Reverse look up in Brooklyn, New York #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

Can someone tell me if there is a reverse-look-up directory for
Brooklyn, New York >from 1893?

My family left Ukraine and the ship's manifest says they were going to a
cousin living at 52 Osborne Street in Brooklyn. The name is difficult to
read; it might be AUERBACH but I cannot tell.

At some point during the voyage they changed their minds and
scribbled over the first name and address with another one in Baltimore,
Maryland where they settled.

So, we have always lived here in Baltimore and not NYC, but it would sure
be nice to find out if we have relatives >from "The Big Apple".

Thank you in advance and Chag Sameach,

Carol Rombro Rider, Baltimore, Maryland USA

them were translated by a genner:

It seems the end is not there.

But it could maybe continue here:

I would be very grateful for translation of all those for pages.
