HYBRID MEETING. DNA has opened a new world of discovery for both casual and seasoned family researchers. Albert will take us through the basics of the 4 types of DNA and explain what can be learned beyond being so many percent this or that ethnicity. Through his own personal DNA results and other research examples, he will give us an insight of what your own results can provide by proving or disproving family relationships. Our speaker, Albert Gershman, will also share what he has discovered about his ancient ethnicity and makeup.

In nineteenth-century Eastern Europe, the Jewish-run tavern was often the center of leisure, hospitality, business, and even religious festivities. This unusual situation came about because the nobles who owned taverns throughout the formerly Polish lands believed that only Jews were sober enough to run taverns profitably, a belief so ingrained as to endure even the rise of Hasidism‘s robust drinking culture. As liquor became the region‘s boom industry, Jewish tavernkeepers became integral to both local economies and local social life, presiding over Christian celebrations and dispensing advice, medical remedies and loans. Nevertheless, reformers and government officials, blaming Jewish tavernkeepers for epidemic peasant drunkenness, sought to drive Jews out of the liquor trade. Their efforts were particularly intense and sustained in the Kingdom of Poland, a semi-autonomous province of the Russian empire that was often treated as a laboratory for social and political change. Historians have assumed that this spelled the end of the Polish Jewish liquor trade. However, newly discovered archival sources demonstrate that many nobles helped their Jewish tavernkeepers evade fees, bans and expulsions by installing Christians as fronts for their taverns. The result-a vast underground Jewish liquor trade-reflects an impressive level of local Polish-Jewish co-existence that contrasts with the more familiar story of anti-Semitism and violence. By tapping into sources that reveal the lives of everyday Jews and Christians in the Kingdom of Poland, Yankel‘s Tavern transforms our understanding of the region during the tumultuous period of Polish uprisings and Jewish mystical revival.

Emily Garber will discuss what it was like to get ready to leave home and cross the sea. There were times when it was more difficult for many Jews to leave Eastern Europe than to enter the United States. What were the requirements for emigration? How did they know what to do? How did people get from their homes to ports of departure? How and where did they acquire tickets to sail? Did they have help along the way? This presentation takes emigrants from their homes to ports of departure.
