Genealogists, Let’s Talk Cryptically About Our Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandparents

Standard

You’d be cryptic too if you were uprooted wherever you went. You can’t blame your ancestors for keeping quiet about their Hebrew origins, they wanted to live. And so today, we live, because our ancestors said “enough already” and were eventually convinced into joining the Christian belief system. Belief systems aside, we’re talking genealogy and those of us who are fascinated with unraveling that puzzle want to know. A true genealogist does not care what color nor what religion an ancestor was, they want to get to the truth. Uncovering that truth is a sense of pride because in America, people are free to practice their religion, no longer hiding in dark rooms for fear of, let’s face it … death.

Genealogy: Russian Jews Arriving In Texas

Standard

Galveston Texas was a port through which Jews came through when escaping the Russian army. I read one family historical account that stated that Jewish children were conscripted into the Russian army when they were as young as seven years old. Many modern day American Jews know they are Jewish but that’s about it. After World War I, in some areas, there weren’t that many Jews in America. Therefore they had no one to teach them their religion and culture. A lot of the German Jews who “assimilated” denied they were Jews.
