Re: My Heritage - Theory of Family Relativity #general

Jocelyn Keene
 

I have had a few hits with the Theory of Family Relativity on MH and some appeared to be correct.  On the other hand I have had many hits on ThruLines on Ancestry.  Partly it depends on the depth of your posted family tree.  By now I have nearly 10K people in my family tree, including many people at my generation, 4th, 5th... cousins.  The fuller you make your own tree, the more likely you are to get hits.  Both Ancestry and MH have done a good job but Ancestry has many more customers and so more chances to find matches.  But I have to admit that I am having trouble at the moment with Ancestry and ThruLines because I have listed adopted-parents for my husband's grandmother whose parents died when she was 16.  Ancestry has included these adopted parents in Thru-Lines as blood relatives and I can't figure out how to get rid of them.  They came from a seemingly prolific London Sephardic family (though they, themselves, never had children) and so many of their relatives are shown as my husbands relatives at the level of 8 cM, which is meaningless.

ViewMate: Reading Shop chalkboard - German language #austria-czech #translation

Robert Fraser
 

Hello friends -

I have placed on Viewmate a photograph of part of a painting of a village grocery shop. The subject is a chalkboard with 'heute' (today) written on it; probably indicating the shop's daily specials. I can't quite make out the writing, so if someone can do so, I'd greatly appreciate a interpretation.

The picture is similar to that of a grocery shop my great-aunt kept in the Austrian village of Poysdorf before WW2.

The era of the picture is probably 1920's to 1930's.

Please respond privately.

Thank you Josef for bringing the 2nd Berezino to my attention. I've been only checking the Berezino in the Minsk region https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Community.php?usbgn=-1941267. Is the other Berezino you are referencing located at coordinates 54°54' N 28°12' E? That Berezino doesn't seem to have any records on JewishGen or anywhere I could find on the internet in general and I don't believe it was ever located in the Minsk district, but maybe I'm mistaken?

Jason,
Try Burial societies with Berezina in it. My grandmother came with her family. Her parents and brother are in the burial area for the Berezina Benevolent Society? Berezina Unter Verein. It is in the Minsk voivode/province and they considered themselves Litvak.  Check YIVO it is a treasure trove of information.

Dear JewishGen Family,


 




Each year, our friends at the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies organize a world-class conference, bringing together scholars, researchers, volunteers, and well-known Jewish genealogists. For nearly an entire week, there are countless opportunities for participants to network, attend sessions, share information, connect with relatives, research their lineage, and ultimately, learn more about our collective Jewish family history and heritage. 


 


Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the conference could not take place in its usual format. But just because we cannot come together in person, does not mean the conference is cancelled! Quite the opposite. The IAJGS team has organized a remarkable 4-day, virtual experience, that will take place next week Monday August 10 - Thursday August 13. It will feature a variety of live and pre-recorded sessions, along with opportunities to engage online with other conference participants.


 


As the home of Jewish genealogy and a major sponsor of this conference, JewishGen.org is proud to participate, and will be offering live and pre-recorded presentations, along with our Research Division meetings. We hope you will join us. All of the live JewishGen programming is offered at no charge, but participants need to register for the conference by visiting: https://bit.ly/30q0zcO.

There is no road-map or template for what they have created, and they have worked hard to accommodate as many people and ideas as possible.

French Research Group #france #JewishGenUpdates

Rosanne Leeson
 

After many long years since Pierre Hahn and I began the FrenchSIG we are
looking to retire peacefully.
At last count the SIG had 998 members.  I have been asking for some
time, and am now strongly asking
again.   Is there someone, or perhaps a couple of members to share the
job, who would be interested,
and feel qualified, to take over to keep a French Research Group
alive?   There are some excellent
responses for help in France now showing up on this list.  If you feel
able and willing to keep the
French Group going we would very much wish to hear from you!

Subject: Re: [JewishGen.org] The female Yiddish name Losche in the US? #names

My name was written in Hungarian by my great uncle on a family tree.  Szosa (after my great grandmother Szosa Laya).  But they all prounounced it Sossa or Sussa.  My name in English is Susan (eg shoshana in Hebrew but not my name).
The way he wrote it it should be pronounced Sosha (sz is like an s and s is like an sh).  So maybe he wrote it wrong or who knows.  But I think your name on the manifest was Soshe. .  It looked like an "L" but was an "S" for sure.  Sosche,no Losche.

Re: Genealogy Research on LIEBERMAN and FRUMKIN from Byerazino, Belarus #belarus

ROBERT WEISS
 

Hello Jason
 
While not in answer to your query, one fact drew my attention concerning your g-g-grandmother Rochel FRUMKIN.
 
I am researching the BRAUDE family from Kelme, Kovno, Lithuania, including the rabbinic BRAUDE dynasty.
 
You wrote: "The attached documents indicate Henry was born in December 1882, but it's possible he could have been born a few years earlier or later. His father's name was Zvulun Lieberman (note that his death record lists his father as Julius) and his mother's name was listed as Rochel/Rachel (maiden name listed as Frumkin)." 
 
On my tree is a Rabbi Shmuel KELMER (1798-1867) one of whose wives was Frume BRAUDE (1815-?). The children of this marriage took the surname FRUMKIN, presumably in honor of their mother Fruma. I do not know how widespread is the surname FRUMKIN, but there may be a connection between your g-g-grandmother and the FRUMKIN family from Kelme.
 
For others reading this message who may be knowledgable of the FRUMKIN family from Kelme, I would welcome corrections. The dates associated with my FRUMKIN tree members are somewhat inconsistent and contradictory.
