Translation of a Nasz Przeglad obituary

Peter Lebensold

I wonder if someone who reads Polish would be kind enough to translate - word for word please - the attached obituary notice I have just found on the expanded Nasz Przeglad database on JRI-Poland.  This might be the Josef Leib SZAFIR who was my grandfather.  Any details will be very helpful.

Thank you.

Thank you, Jeffrey. Someone suggested I also look at Millman as a spelling. I didn't think about other alternatives.

Re: Davidic Ancestry in the First Century?

tom

at the 2002 iajgs conference (in toronto as it happens), one of the presentations touched on a very similar theme, that within a given population, is it mathematically possible to prove whether 2 individuals were related?  the answer lies in reversing the question, and asking what it would take for them not to share a common ancestor:  for each generation that they are not related, there would have to be 2x as many distinct ancestors.  and fairly quickly, that number, 2^n, would exceed the total number of humans.  assuming about 25 years per generation, 1000 years would be 40 generations; 2^40 is a trillion.  that's a far bigger number than there have ever been humans on earth. (estimated at 100 billion.)

the flipside is that assuming that the person's line didn't die out, and assuming that there weren't any special taboos or physical barriers limiting their offspring, it would also mean that after a sufficient number of generations, everyone is descended from any given individual.

so either king david's line ended, and no one is, or after 1000 years everyone was his descendant.

but what is the purpose of your research?

Another relevant factor would be that it was much more common in ancient times for people to marry within their own family lines, such as to first or second cousins, so that would somewhat narrow the branching of the genealogy as opposed to each generation continually marrying outside of their family line, but again I'm not sure exactly how much that would narrow the numbers by.

I don't need specific names for any of this, just a general estimate if the information is accessible, or otherwise some advice for how I might go calculating the number on my own. Thanks!

Re: Suwalki-Lomza Landsmen Journal

I wrote Marlene  last year in August of last year and October of 2018. I didn’t get an answer.

Re: Suwalki-Lomza Landsmen Journal

Brian Neil Burg

Stanley,

Can you or anyone else confirm that the last issue of Landsmen was Volume 25, Numbers 1-2 Double Issue, January, 2017?  That seems to be the last one I received.  I have an email from Marlene dated January 5, 2018.  In it she said she was having technical difficulties with Windows 10 and that Volume 25, Numbers 3-4 would be coming to me, but would be delayed.  She said that she was hoping to get to the printer by the end of the month.  I don't believe I ever received that double issue.  Did it ever come out?  I got so busy with other matters that I never followed through on this!

Would you believe I was a Charter Member of the Suwalk-Lomza Interest Group and actually submitted several questions and two documents to the very first issue of Landsmen?  Marlene published my letter and one of the documents and really helped me get a handle on my wife's family from Suwalki Gubernia.  I owe her and Nicki Russler a lot.  It's hard to believe, but that was 30 years ago!

Thank you for your historical overview of how Landsmen and the Suwalk-Lomza Interest Group came into existence.

moderated Re: Which name do I use to enter into my family tree program---the old Russian name or the USA name?

philgoldsmith@...

My "standard" is to use the birth name (albeit transliterated from another alphabet) as the "preferred" name and the Americanized version as an AKA. Using Family Tree Maker, I always show/print both the Preferred Name and the AKA. BTW, to dispel a common misconception: Beginning with the Immigration Act of 1893, no names were ever changed by American immigration authorities at Ellis Island or elsewhere. In fact, the immigrants left the arrival station with no official paperwork at all. The only document (except for medical purposes) was the Passenger Manifest which was , which was prepared by the steamship line at the port of embarkation and delivered to US immigration officials upon arrival. To be sure, lots of immigrants changed their names, but only on their own.

Translation of birth records in Russian - family name WROCLAVSKI

Crivorot, Sergio

I've posted three birth records in Russian for which I need a translation. They are on ViewMate at the following sequential addresses:

I'd like to have the whole texts translated, as these may be important records of my ancestors. I am particularly interested in names, parent names, towns, dates of birth, anything that would help me learn more about the persons in question.

If my assumptions are correct, they are all siblings (are the parents the same ?), and one of them is my great-grandmother. Two of them seem to have been registered in the same day, which or may not mean that they were born in the same day.

Please respond using the online ViewMate form.

Thank you so much,

Re: Hungarian Forced LaborCompany 108-58

Dear Alex,
If you do find any information about specific Forced Labour companies then a lot of people would be interested.
When I contacted the Hungarian Archives about information about Forced Labour companies I was informed that all records had been destroyed during the war.

Re: Lara Diamond Webinar on Introduction to Jewish Genealogy on Family Search

Lin Herz

I was unable to join this Zoom. As with other Zooms I’ve participated in , it is asking for a meeting ID and password. While I appreciate the opportunity , I hope in the future Lara Diamond includes the meeting ID and password. I keep getting a message “waiting for host.” on both my phone and laptop, but it’s also asking for meeting ID and password. I was really looking forward to this seminar.

Re: Sharing family tree information

Judy Salomon

I would only share information about dead relatives. I know they can get information on their own about living relatives but I would not share that information. Just my opinion. It would be different if you knew the person.
