Molaff #general

ab.cohen@...
 

Dear All

I have asked this once before but never solved the problem but as
there seems a renewed interest in finding Mohilev I'll ask again.

Family says my g'father came >from Vitepsk; on his naturalization
papers and UK passport it states he came >from Molaff, Vitepsk, Russia.

I have assumed Molaff is Mohilev but have never found one associated
with Vitepsk.

Has anyone any ideas please?

Re: Yahrzeit reminder in genealogical websites #general

Todd Edelman asks if other online genealogy websites (other than
Geni.com) have "birthday reminders."

Yes. MyHeritage.com (which owns Geni.com) provides the ability to
send various reminders to tree members.

Solomon MEYEROVICH, Vilna? #rabbinic

Lisa Grayson <lisa@...>
 

I found a record in the LitvakSIG database for the 22 August 1865
marriage of my distant Litvak relation, Sheytka/Sheyna MARUKHES
(daughter of Iosel), to Solomon MEYEROVICH (son of Berko) in Vilna,
performed by Rabbi Girsh KATSENELENBOGEN (sic). A note states,
"Solomon is a graduate of Vilnius rabbinic school; Husband >from
Vilna; Wife >from Vilna."

I've searched online for more information about Solomon MEYEROVICH,
using various spellings, but have not yet found the right man. I'm
wondering (1) if anyone has heard of him, and (2) if the rabbi that
married this couple might be Zvi Hirsch KATZENELLENBOGEN of Vilna
(1796-1868). Any suggestions or comments would be most appreciated.

Thank you for your help.

Yours sincerely,

Re: Klyosov's article, Thoughts about Jewish DNA Genealogy #dna

SVass <SVass@...>
 

I am in agreement with the Klyosov paper (Thoughts about Jewish
DNA Genealogy, http://tinyurl.com/klyosov-article ) and would
consider it to be an excellent introduction to our current
understanding of early Jewish y DNA haplogroups.

My y haplogroup is R1b-V88 which was also among the inhabitants of
both Anatolia and the Levant when Judaism was founded. I know very
little about the other haplogroups; but, I assume that Anatole's
calculations are reasonable estimates for their original age.

from the paper, "Currently haplogroup R1a among Arabs reaches 9% of
the male population, including such well-known clans as the Quraysh
clan, >from which came the Prophet Muhammad, the founder of Islam,"

The surname Sharif is commonly associated with direct male
descendants of the husband of the daughter of Mohammed.

https://www.familytreedna.com/public/R-Arabia/default.aspx?section=yresults

has several V88 Sharefs and others of Arab ancestry who fall into the
group that branched >from my Jewish group around 4k years ago thus adding
us to the haplogroups identified and discussed in the Klyosov paper.

Simon LOPEZ follow-up #usa

John Anderson
 

Some of the information given to me regarding my research into Simon LOPEZ
has led me to the U.S. City Directories, 1821-1989 for the city of Dayton,
Ohio. In the 1877 edition, there is a listing for him as "agent Unsere Alte
Heimath" followed by his residential address. Would anyone know of this
organization?

I have also found an earlier mention of someone with the same name in the
1866 St. Louis, Missouri city directory. It lists him and a Solomon MEYER:
"Lopez Simon (Meyer & Lopez)" followed by an address. Does anyone know of
these people? I also saw a tax assessment in 1865 for Simon in Missouri
(U.S. IRS Tax Assessment Lists, 1862-1918); the same residence is listed so
it is the same person. The assessment appears to say "Ex $600" which I
presume means income in excess of $600.

In some records, Simon says he came to the US in 1863; in one he says 1854.
I am still searching for immigration/naturalization records. Again, I am
most grateful for the information some of you have provided, and hope that
this newer information might point me somewhere else.

Question about gate decoration in Perechyn tourism video #subcarpathia

Todd Edelman <edelman@...>
 

Hi,

In the short contemporary tourism promotion video about Perechyn at the
following link, there is an interesting symbol up high on an old gate.
It appears briefly at :18 seconds in. Is it Jewish-related... or any
idea what it means?

Thanks!

It seems like some sort of record of court documents?
