Demographics of Poland-Lithuania and Our Jewish History There

Those of us doing genealogy and tracing DNA matched people to us need to know something about Lithuania's history, as Lithuanian ancestors were very proud of who who they were.  My grandmother wanted us to know that she was not Polish but Lithuanian and here her town of Lazdijai, on the border, had been taken by Poland, but when?  I'm afraid it happened before her birth of January 11, 1886.  Her family even seemed to be using a Polish spelling for their surname-Jermulowkse, whereas there were possible relatives in other parts of Lithuania using Jarmolowsky.  But she insisted that SHE WAS A LITVAK.  Her husband, a Goldfus, was a Litvak and she was too.  Lithuania was the big religious center of eastern Europe.  In Vilnius was the Gaon of Vilna, the Genius of Vilna, and he must have had a lot of importance and was from a large family as so many people claim descend ency from him.  

"The Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth  comprised various identities: Poles, Lithuanians, Czechs, Hungarians, Slovaks, Ruthenians (Belarusians and Ukrainians), and Vlachs (Romanians). Sometimes inhabitants of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania were called Litvins, a Slavic term for people from Lithuania, regardless of their ethnicity (with the exception of Jews, who were called Litvaks).

Jews have been known to have been in Lithuania since 1321, and slavery was permitted in these early days.  I wonder if any of our ancestors were enslaved then? 

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue, but more importantly, the Spanish Inquisition started in this year.   By 1495, Jews living in Vilna, Grodno and Kovno, most likely some of our ancestors, totaled 10,000.  

By 1495 to 1502 Jews were excluded from Lithuania.  Maybe this meant that more were banned from entering.

By 1529 with so many there they received a charter giving them freedom of movement and employment.  A few managed to monopolize foreign trade and tax-farming, whatever this means.  Being Jews were not allowed to own land, they may have been the tax collectors-something allowed for them to do. 
                                                        
Jewish badge in Belgium-1941

From 1566 to 1572, the wearing of the Jewish badge was introduced.  Jews could no longer give evidence in the courtroom.  Then WWII came along and
it was again used on Jews. 

 Shortly after the Union of Lublin in 1569, the Commonwealth's population was around 7 million, with roughly of 4.5 million Poles, 750,000 Lithuanians, 700,000 Jews and 2 million Ruthenians.[94]

 In 1618, after the Truce of Deulino, the Commonwealth population increased together with its territory, reaching 12 million people, which was composed roughly of 4.5 million Poles, 3.5 million Ukrainians, 1.5 million Belarusians, 750,000 Lithuanians, 750,000 Old Prussians, 500,000 Jews, and 500,000 Livonians.[7] At that time nobility was 10% of the population, and burghers were 15%.[7] The average population density per square kilometer was: 24 in Mazovia, 23 in Lesser Poland, 19 in Great Poland, 12 in Lublin palatinate, 10 in the Lvov area, 7 in Podolia and Volhynia, and 3 in the Ukraine. There was a tendency for the people from the more densely inhabited western territories to migrate eastwards.[95]

In 1623 the Jews created their own Council and a separate tax-system was established.  

 In the period from 1648 to 1657, populations losses are estimated at 4 m.[7] Coupled with further population and territorial losses, in 1717 the Commonwealth population had fallen to 9 m, with roughly 4.5 m/50% Poles, 1.5 m/17% Ukrainians, 1.2 m Belarusians, 0.8 m Lithuanians, 0.5 m Jews, and 0.5 m others.[7] Just before the first partition of Poland, the Commonwealth's population stood at some 14 million, including around 1 million nobles,[96] 4.7 million Uniates and 400,000 Orthodox Christians.[97] In 1792, the population was around 11 million and included 750,000 nobles.[96]

In 1768, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth became a protectorate of the Russian Empire.[41][42] Control of Poland was central to Catherine the Great's diplomatic and military strategies.[43] Attempts at reform, such as the Four-Year Sejm's May Constitution, came too late. The country was partitioned in three stages by the neighboring Russian Empire, the Kingdom of Prussia, and the Habsburg Monarchy.

 By 1795, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth had been completely erased from the map of Europe. Poland and Lithuania were not re-established as independent countries until 1918.

The Commonwealth did eventually make a serious effort to reform its political system, adopting in 1791 the Constitution of 3 May 1791, which historian Norman Davies calls the first of its kind in Europe.[27] The revolutionary Constitution recast the erstwhile Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth as a Polish–Lithuanian federal state with a hereditary monarchy and abolished many of the deleterious features of the old system. 

World War I of 1914 to 1917:  100,000 Jews were expelled or emigrated to the Russian interior.  It was also a time of much emigration of Jews to the USA. 

Lithuania gave national autonomy to Jews from 1918 to 1924.  Vilna went to Poland in 1919.  This was the Jewish center where the Gaon of Vilna was from.  Jews were weakened by this loss.  
                                                               
Lodz Ghetto
Lodz is in Poland.  It is the 3rd largest city and a former industrial site.


World War II and the Jewish population at the outbreak was about 175,000.  About 25,000 were deported by the Russians from Lithuania and Latvia in July 1940.  Those that remained were massacred by the Germans and Lithuanian  Christian population by 1943.  

1959 was the year when 24,000 Jews still lived in Lithuania, most likely returnees to homes lost in the war.

1989 saw that half of the Jewish population in 1959 had left for Israel, leaving 12,312.  

1990 INDEPENDENCE:  A change in people's attitudes?  According to Lithuanian law, anyone who left Lithuania under the Soviet occupation until the country’s independence in 1990, and their descendants to the second generation, are eligible for citizenship.

“This is a huge activity in our embassy,” a man interviewed said. “We have hundreds of people every day. We are happy, we are happy that our family here grows, that we have people who want to come and rediscover Lithuania.”  
                                                        
This offer must not be extended to Jews, because I have a distant cousin, also with roots in Lithuania and related to me, Grant Arthur Gochin, who has written his book , writing through his frustration about this and how he has been denied citizenship.  His book is called : Malice, Murder, and Manipulation-One Man's Quest for Truth.  Grant is a Californian now, but he has quite a story; and a wonderful genealogy tree which contained my Goldfus relative as well, connecting us.  So I'm proud of his strength and doing his  part in keeping facts truthful.  We're led to believe one thing when another is happening.  
2019 and there are 4,000 to 5,000 Jews living in Lithuania.

The Y haplogroup Movements of People with QBZ67

Nadene Goldfoot                                         

My brother's Y haplogroup test was first done at the 25 allele level.  At each level are given different tags for identification-also depending on the years tested.  He has had the tags of:
Q1b1a
Q M378,
Q-L245
Q Y2200
QBZ67
                                                                       
From Rebecca Canada on our Q haplogroup:
1. "Has Turkey and Iran been already dismissed as origins for our Q1b? If so, what are places being looked into?"
No. There are plenty of Q-M378 and Q-L245 men in Turkey too.

Q1b Ydna Answers from Rebekah Canada ( I am awaiting the results of our L245 and L272 tests.  They should be ready by May 20, 2011.

Q-L245 as well as Q-M378 (not Q-L245) has been found throughout Iran. For that matter, it has been found throughout all of the ancient Babylonian and then Persian Empire lands.
1. As long as you are willing to believe that the Babylonian captivity happened and was not an invented story, it makes the presence of Q-L245 in the Jewish populations simple to explain.

"I realize that our Q1b is a more recent branch stemming from one man from about 800 yrs or so.. "
1. That was based on 25 marker data. There is a large +/- of about 400 years attached to it. If all of your 12 marker matches upgrade to 67, the dates will be more accurate. What it likely is most related to is the mass killings of European Jews in the middle ages. Only a few of the Q-L245 lines survived. There were others. That one man had dozens of 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 10th cousins. Many of those lines did not make it to 1900. Of those who did, the Nazis killed yet more.
As more people from Australia, South Asia, and South America test, maybe we will find more of those who survived. Right now, it is mostly American Jews who test.
I also fear that some people are just so racist against anyone from outside of Europe that they do not want their haplogroup to be from the Middle East. 

From friend Akhunazada Arif Hasan Khan at 8:50am November 27th:
Regarding Q (M242) the latest research says it originated in the South Asia (our or Pakistani/Indus Valley area and moved up into Central Asia from where it spread all over including a return journey
to where it had originally been.  Population movements are very irregular and sporatic and for the most part, historically undocumented.  

We are Jewish.  Only 5% of the Jewish population are made up of men bearing the Q haplogroup.  After testing to the point of 111 alleles, we find our title is now QBZ67 of which only one other person at ftdna company also bears besides my brother and happens to be a match as 4th cousin. 
                                                                             
My brother's ancient traveling pattern 7,000 to 8,000 years ago in the farming stage shows we started from around Aleppo, Syria and traveled NW into Turkey, in Ankara, then Bulgaria, Budapest, Slovakia, even into Switzerland and into Germany.  This would have started around 6,000 BCE to 5,000 BCE way before Abraham was born.  He was born in the 2nd millennium about 1948 BCE.  Moses wasn't even born till 1391 BCE.

I have thought for some time that we might be related distantly to the Pashtuns of Afghanistan, Pakistan and parts of India.  They do have people carrying a Q haplogroup.  Now I think it's also possible after reading about the Seljuk or Saljuq Turks the Crusades and the Ottoman Empire, that we could be related to them as well because the origin of Q is said to be found from Siberia, Mongolia and parts of Turkey.  I wonder if Mongolian genes weren't introduced by the Mongolian invasion into Jerusalem after the Crusades.
                                                                             
"In 1258, the Mongols under the leader Hulagu, on their quest to further expand the Mongol Empire, successfully captured the center of power in the Islamic world, the city of Baghdad, effectively destroying the Abbasid dynasty. After Baghdad, the Mongol forces, including some Christians from the previously conquered or submitted territories of GeorgiaCilician Armenia and Antioch, went on to conquer Syria, the domain of the Ayyubid dynasty. The Mongols took the city of Aleppo, and on March 1, 1260, they conquered Damascus, destroying the Ayyubid Dynasty as well..  

Mongol raids into Palestine took place towards the end of the Crusades, following the temporarily successful Mongol invasions of Syria, primarily in 1260 and 1300. Following each of these invasions, there existed a period of a few months during which the Mongols were able to launch raids southward into Palestine, reaching as far as Gaza.
The raids were executed by a relatively small part of the Mongol army, which proceeded to loot, kill, and destroy. However, the Mongols appeared to have had no intention, on either occasion, of integrating Palestine into the Mongol administrative system, and a few months after the Syrian invasions, Mamluk forces returned from Egypt and reoccupied the region with little resistance  History disagrees with each researcher as to what happened to Jerusalem and its valuables.  The Mongols were intensive in the looting and attacking.  I wonder how much raping was accomplished as well.  
                                                            WHO WE ARE NOT
"A study conducted in 2013 found no evidence of a Khazar origin for Ashkenazi Jews and suggested that "Ashkenazi Jews share the greatest genetic ancestry with other Jewish populations, and among non-Jewish populations, with groups from Europe and the Middle East. No particular similarity of Ashkenazi Jews with populations from the Caucasus is evident, particularly with the populations that most closely represent the Khazar region. In this view, analysis of Ashkenazi Jews together with a large sample from the region of the Khazar Khaganate would corroborate earlier results that Ashkenazi Jews derive their ancestry primarily from populations of the Middle East and Europe, that they possess considerable shared ancestry with other Jewish populations, and that there is no indication of a significant genetic contribution either from within or from north of the Caucasus region."
                                                                                 
In 2016, together with R. Das, P. Wexler and M. Pirooznia,   Elhaik advanced the view that the first Ashkenazi populations to speak the Yiddish language came from areas near four villages in Eastern Turkey along the Silk Road whose names derived from the word "Ashkenaz", arguing that Iranian, Greek, Turkish, and Slav populations converted on that travel route before moving to Khazaria, where a small-scale conversion took place. The study was dismissed by Sergio DellaPergola as a "falsification", noting it failed to include Jewish groups such as the Italkim and Sephardic Jews, to whom Ashkenazi Jews are closely related genetically. Shaul Stampfer, a professor of Soviet and East European Jewry at the Hebrew University, called Elhaik's research "basically nonsense". Elhaik replied that the DNA of non-Ashkenazic Jews would not affect the origin of DNA hypothesized for the former. Prof. Dovid Katz, founder of Vilnius University’s Yiddish Institute criticized the study’s linguistic analysis. “The authors have melded accurate but contextually meaningless genetic correlations with laughable linguistic theories that now proliferate, sadly, as a consequence of a much weakened Yiddish academic environment internationally ... there is not a single word or sound in Yiddish that comes from Iranian or Turkish".[19] In joint study published in 2016 by Genome Biology and Evolution, Pavel Flegontov from Department of Biology and Ecology, Faculty of Science, University of Ostrava, Czech Republic, A.A. Kharkevich Institute of Linguistics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Mark G. Thomas from Research Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment, University College London, UK, Valentina Fedchenko from Saint Petersburg State University, and George Starostin from Russian State University for the Humanities, dismissed both the genetic and linguistic components of Elhaik et al. study arguing that "GPS is a provenancing tool suited to inferring the geographic region where a modern and recently unadmixed genome is most likely to arise, but is hardly suitable for admixed populations and for tracing ancestry up to 1000 years before present, as its authors have previously claimed. Moreover, all methods of historical linguistics concur that Yiddish is a Germanic language, with no reliable evidence for Slavic, Iranian, or Turkic substrata." The authors concluded:
"In our view, Das and co-authors have attempted to fit together a marginal and unsupported interpretation of the linguistic data with a genetic provenancing approach, GPS, that is at best only suited to inferring the most likely geographic location of modern and relatively unadmixed genomes, and tells nothing of population history and origin."

Romania-Lithuania Home For Our 4th Cousin: Origins of Our Y Haplogroup

Nadene Goldfoot                                               
We have a 4th cousin  with the very same Y haplogroup as our Goldfoot line of QBZ67, but the ancestor is from Romania and not Lithuania or Poland which are in the Pale of Settlement.    So at 4th level of cousins, tested through FTNDA, that is quite a stretch in time and geography.  It's much closer to Turkey and the Seljaq Turks, the Turks of the Ottoman Empire who controlled the Middle East for 400 years, losing it only at the end of WWI.

I also note that another DNA cousin with ancestors from Latvia, is a neighbor of Lithuania.  We've had DNA cousins from Belarus and Ukraine as well and those countries are part of the Pale.  The Pale was controlled by Russia through Catherine II until the end of WWI in 1917.

The interesting thing is that his ancestor and our ggrandfather, Movsha ben Josel b: 1836, were distillers.  His manufacturing of alcohol spirits in the USA and ours listed as a distiller-the maker of alcohol.  So occupations were the same.

He also is 4th cousin to our 2nd to 3rd cousin, Ian Goldfoot whose family  had gone to South Africa whereas our grandfather opted for the USA and they parted company .

Update: By using my brother's ancient origins map, I see that he originated out of Georgia which is or was part of Russia from the area around Tbillsi up north to Smolensk and then westward to Poland, and onto the Czech Republic area and finally into Germany where our Ashkenazim came from.  The Yamnaya people was mentioned who brought in horses instead of Anatolia of a language group.

We are related to Rabbi Samson Wertheimer b: 1658 in Worms, Germany and died 1724 in Vienna, Austria, as found in the FTDNA group we matched with-the Halpern group, and he was the nephew of Rabbi Samuel Oppenheimer b: 1630 probably also born in Worms but the first to settle in Vienna after the 1670 expulsion of Jews.  He died in 1703. .  They both were philanthropists and Court Jews.  Court Jews were involved with banks and were able to loan heads of state money.  .  I see that on the colored Q chart of the FTDNA's Q group, a Jehuda Lob Oppenheimer  b: 1430  was a QBZ37.  He lived in Worms, Germany, which was the center of the Ashkenazim Rabbis where RASHI would also have been.  This group connects to RASHI and he in turn connects to King David of Israel.

The Jews of Hungary

Nadene Goldfoot 
                                                                   
Hungary was a country outside the Pale of Settlement where Jews had found refuge to live.  The first-known Jewish grave dates back from the 2nd century CE.  Jewish communities lived in Hungary in the 9th century.  By the 13th century, the decrees of the Lateran Council segregating the Jews from their neighbors were put into effect.  This was the 4th Council when these things were decided:
   Regulations relating to Jews and Muslims
  • Canon 67: Jews may not charge extortionate interest.
  • Canons 68: Jews and Muslims shall wear a special dress to enable them to be distinguished from Christians so that no Christian shall come to marry them ignorant of who they are.
  • Canon 69: Declares Jews disqualified from holding public offices, incorporating into ecclesiastical law a decree of the Holy Christian Empire.
  • Canon 70: Takes measures to prevent converted Jews from returning to their former belief.
In addition, it threatened excommunication to those who supplied ships, arms, and other war materials to the Saracens.
Effective application of the decrees varied according to local conditions and customs.

Jews had to wear a distinctive badge of identification, usually the star of David.  During the reign of Bela IV from 1235 to 1270, many Jews settled in Hungary as his property. 

Béla IV of Hungary

Béla IV (1206 – 3 May 1270), also known as Béla the Great, was King of Hungary and Croatia between 1235 and 1270, and Duke of Styria from 1254 to 1258. Being the oldest son of King Andrew II, he was crowned upon the initiative of a group of influential noblemen in his father's lifetime in 1214. His father, who strongly opposed Béla's coronation, refused to give him a province to rule until 1220.

 They enjoyed good relations with their neighbors.   Jews often were the minters of coins.  Some of them even had Hebrew inscriptions on them.  

The Pope put pressure on the people and the Jews, but Jews remained in a good position until 1349 when they all were expelled for the first time in Hungary.  A 2nd time took place in 1360.  Then many Jews immigrated from neighboring countries when the edict was revoked in 1364.  A year later, the office of "Judge of the Jews" was established to collect taxes from the Jewish population  and protect their interests.  The last judge was appointed in 1440.  

The 15th and 16th centuries were marked by recurrent charges of Ritual Murder.  They blamed Jews for killing a child they may have found murdered somewhere and said the Jews did it so they could use the child's blood in making matzos for Passover.  Of course it's the worst of lies said for an excuse to kill Jews.  The reason was that then they could cancel debts of money owed to the Jews.  

For nearly a 150 years until 1686, the Jews of Budapest and southern Hungary enjoyed a large measure of civic equality and religious liberty under the occupying Ottoman regime, although they were subject to their heavy taxes being they were dhimmis, or 2nd class citizens.  .

The restoration of Hungarian sovereignty brought in its wake expulsions and the exclusion of Jews from agriculture and the professions.  At the same time, some nobles protected the Jews whose numbers were augmented by refugees from Vienna in 1670.  The Jewish population increased because they were joined by Jew arriving from Moravia and Poland in the first half of the 18th century.  
                                                     

The Polish immigrants brought the study of the Talmud to Hungary.  They established important centers of learning.    

Rabbi Samson "Wertheimer (1658-1724) born in Worms, Germany, leased royal revenues and was one of the chief purveyors of the imperial forces.  Together with his son, Wolf, they lent large sums to the emperor, the Holy Roman Emperor, King Leopold (1640-1705)  of Germany,  Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia. 
                                       
                                       Rabbi Samson Wertheimer

     Wertheimer is the man  I match in DNA along with others in a DNA group on FTDNA which traces back to him.  This was found by triangulation of DNA.  The
genealogy I've done only goes back to Telsiai, Lithuania and our Goldfus family.  Descendants of Iones Jonah Goldfus

Iones Jonah Goldfus b: Abt. 1730 in Telsiai, Telsiai, Kaunas, Lithuania d: 1813 in prob. Telsiai, Telsiai, Kaunas, Lithuania


 In 1719 /Charles VI (1685-1740) another Holy Roman Emperor,  appointed him as chief rabbi of Hungary with judicial authority.  He used his connections to assist Jewish communities and obtained an order from  Emperor Leopold prohibiting the publication of Eisenmenger's antii-Jewish work, "Entdecktes Judentum.

During Maria Theresa's reign, many new methods were created for exacting money from the Jews, who had been the big money-lenders.  The rule of Joseph II (1780 to 1790) brought the  right to establish schools, lease lands, engage in all trades and professions and ive in the royal cities.  The Jewish badge was abolished, and the Jews had to adopt German surnames.  All this was then nullified at Joseph's death.  It was followed with a struggle to regain these legal rights plus an increeased Magyarization of the Jewish community.                   


 There was a a revolution between Austria and Hungary.   Wholehearted support for the 1848 revolution brought severe reprisals by the Austrians.  It took until 1867 till the Jews were finally granted full civic and political rights.  Then Hungarian Jewry became divided in its religious life into two opposing camps of orthodox and liberal Jews.  
                                                      

The rapid integration of the Jews into the country's life received a brief setback with the rise of 19th century anti-Semitism, culminating in the TISZAESZLAR Ritual Murder libel.  "An accusation of Jewish ritual murder in the Hungarian village of Tiszaeszlár (before 1918, in Szabolcs county) led to the arrest, imprisonment, interrogation, and eventual trial of 13 Jewish defendants, April 1882–August 1883. The Tiszaeszlár affair began with the disappearance of a 14-year-old Christian girl named Eszter Solymosi on 1 April 1882. "

Jews played a prominent part in the cultural life of Hungary before World War I.  Jews played a disproportionate participation in the Communist Revolution of 1919 so suffered heavily after the collapse of the Bela KUN regime, and discrimination of many kinds was instituted against them.  After the advent of Nazism in Germany, the scope of anti-Jewish measures enacted by the government had increased.  These also applied to  300,000 Jews in territories which the Hungarians annexed from Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and Romania during World War II.  
                                                          

In 1944, the Nazis overran Hungary, imposing ghettos, concentration camps and deportations to extermination centers.  Of Hungary's 725,000 Jews, about 400,000 were murdered in the Holocaust.  After the liberation, all pre-war organizations were re-established.  The accession to power of the communists in 1948 led to the nationalization of Jewish institutions, and religious organizations were centralized under one authority.  

Some 20,000 Jews fled Hungary after the 1956 revolution.  Jewish communal and religious life (including the Budapest rabbinical seminary) continued under the communist regime but flourished more freely with the introduction of liberalization.  80,000 Jews were registered with the community by 1990, but there were many more who were not affiliated.

How Near Is a Match to me?

Nadene Goldfoot                                 
     
We carry the DNA of our ancestors going back at least 10 generations of 512 female and 512 male grandparents allowing us to have some DNA from about the year of  1769.  That covers 1,024 grandparent ancestors and a lot more from them.   We have in each cell a total of 3400 certiMorgans worth of DNA.

We find these amount of centiMorgans sitting on 23 chromosomes nice and neat coming to us in  segments as small as 1cM to as large as  imaginable. 
                                                      
                                                   
Bubby, Dad and me, 3 generations
Lithuania-USA side-Jermulowske/Goldfoot


1 generation ago we had 2 ancestors, a mother and a father.  50% of our DNA comes from each parent.  Our parents were born about 25 years ago  from us.  Being I was born in 1934, I know when they were born; F-1908, M-1913. We get 50% of our DNA from each parent. I had Mildred Robinson and Maurice Goldfoot as parents.   My son and daughter shares 3384cMs each with me. The longest segment each has is 267cMs and each has the same segment on chromosome 23.   My brother shares 2537cMs with me.  Our longest segment is 189cMs long and we also match on the X chromosome.

Goldfoot 3rd Cousins Meeting For 1st Time

Nadene Goldfoot                                         
Ian, Myself, and my brother David
all three are Goldfoots; meeting at David's home-
our 3rd cousin, from the South African branch.
Here's the story.  

            Nathan "Nokhim Avram"Abraham" of Abram Goldfus, Telsiai, Kaunas, Lithuania
                            b: January 1, 1871, d: July 19, 1912 Portland, Oregon USA
                                                     My grandfather that I never knew.  Evidently, my father
remembers combing his beard, so he must have grown one, though he was only 41 years 6 months 18 days old when he was killed in a horse and wagon accident when the horse was spooked and threw him out of the wagon and he hit his head and never gained consciousness again.  He was taken to St. Vincent's Hospital, the old one.  My son is a nurse at the new St. Vincent's Hospital.
                                                                         
Charlie and Meshkie 
                                   
Maurice Goldfoot b: 1908 and myself
Meshkie
Charles Goldfoot
Hojkel (Hochkie)
b: 1906
Nathan died when his son, my father, Maurice (Moses), was 4 years old.  His death forced my father and his 2 years older brother, Charlie, so sell newspapers on the streets of Portland to help their mother who had 2 little girls at home to tend, Elsie b: 1911 and Anne b: 1912, 4 months after Nathan's death. Bubba never did learn to speak English.
She spoke Yiddish.

Our Goldfoot family, found in Telsiai, Lithuania, spelled our surname as Goldfus, which is a Yiddish spelling for Goldfuss, which is German.  I found some of us with the latter spelling, too.  Jews had been in Lithuania since 1321.  In 1495 they were residing in Vilna, Lithuania, Grodno and Kovno.  By 1529 they even received a charter guaranteeing freedom of movement and employment.  But, in 1495-1502, they were excluded from Lithuania, and between 1566-72, the Jewish badge was introduced and Jews could not give evidence in a courtroom.
                                                                     
Jews settled in Telz at the beginning of the 17th century.  From 1623 to 1764, the "Vaad Medinath Lita" was established, and the Telz community was a subject of the "Kahal" of the Keidan district.  By 1797 the population of Telz was 2,500, and of them, 1,650 were Jews, which was 66%.  Telz Jews suffered from blood libels, one in 1758 and the 2nd in 1827.  The accused were released by the court, but the whole ordeal caused all a lot of fear.  Estate owners didn't like the Jews and accused them of being competitors in producing and selling alcohol, so in 1825 the nobles asked the Tsar to expel the Jews because they "spread diseases and threaten to rob and to steal..." Our ancestor, Movsha, was a distiller!  

Nathan's great grandfather had been alive then, Iosel Josel Symka ben Yankel Goldfus b: 1798 d: December 19, 1878, born and raised in Telz.  His wife was Rasha.  I have 12 children listed for them.

 They were part of Russia from 1795 to 1918.  During WWI, 100,000 Jews were expelled or emigrated to the Russian interior.  In 1893 there was a cholera epidemic and many poor Jews died.  Finally Lithuania became independent and had national autonomy from 1918 to 1924.  In 1919 Vilna was lost and became part of Poland.  This move weakened the Jews of Lithuania and after 1924, autonomy was restricted to religious matters and the economic position of the Jews deteriorated in the coming years.
                           
I've been able to go back to 1730 when Iones or Jonah Goldfus was born in Telsiai, Kaunas, Lithuania.  I don't know who he was married to but had two sons, Abram b: 1752 and Mark b: 1753.
                                                         
Elsie (Essie) 
             
Ann Naomi
Khammie
Zlata Jermulowkse b; January 11, 1886 Lazdijai, Lithuania
on the border with Poland d: December 9, 1950, Portland, Oregon
Between 1869 to 1872 there was a famine in Lithuania.  Nathan was born in the middle of it.
                                                                           
Zlata Goldfoot nee Jermulowske b:, my father and me when a baby 1934
Our Bobba was very short, as her legs had been broken in a pogrom in Lithuania,
and she was short to start with.  I don't know who ever called her Hattie, but she bore that

name, though we all called her the Yiddish term for grandma, which was Bubbie.  I turned
it into Bobbie.  
My grandfather was Nathan Abraham Goldfus b: January 1, 1871 in Telsiai, Lithuania. He spoke Yiddish.   He may have left Lithuania because of the Russian Draft because at this time Lithuania was part of Russia.   He emigrated to England, then moved onto Dublin, Ireland, and finally managed to get into the USA.  I found him married to my grandmother, Zlata Jermulowske in Council, Idaho on November 20, 1905 in Washington County, Idaho.  A train had just started going through Council and my grandfather got off there.  My grandmother, Zlata, was already living nearby with her sisters and their husbands living there, Sam and Harry Criss with wives Bessie and Jenny Jermulowske.  The spelling on the marriage certificate was ineligible.  Luckily, I recognized the witnesses who were family members. I believe I found this record in Boise, Idaho.   Neither Zlata nor Nathan could read or write.  According to the marriage certificate, both Addie and Nathan lived in Council, Idaho when they married on 20 Nov. 1905.  Sam and Harry Criss were witnesses.  Other witnesses were C.J. Urdrick and Jamy (possibly Jenny) Criss.  D.J. Richardson was the JP that married them.  Frank E. Smith was the County Recorder.   She said she immigrated from Hamburg, Germany. on the vessel "Altverten" and said she was married.  That means Nathan and she came together though they married in Council, Idaho.  She arrived at New York City port in New York around 6th of May, 1903. (Think she didn't understand the question as she never learned to speak English.)
  After Charles, their first son was born in Council, they took the train and settled in Portland, Oregon.

  My grandmother Hattie"Zlata" came over from  "Russia"on May 6, 1903 along with her sisters Jenny and Bessie.  She was 17.  Bessie was  21 or 20.  Jenny must have been about 11 years old.  I have not found them in the Ellis Island Port yet.  On the Declaration of Intention paper, she said she came here via Hamburg, Germany on the ship Altverten and landed in New York.  On the Declaration of Intention of May 17, 1917, at age 31, she states she came from Zuwalta, Russia to Hamburg, Germany on the vessel Altverten { possibly be Altai or Aultman} as that's the only ship I can find on Stephen Morse list and was married. Her grandson David said it might have been  the "Antwerpen".   She came to New York on the 6th of May 1903.  She had black hair and brown eyes and was dark complected.  She was only 64 years old when she died. This was written by a clerk in the circuit court.
                                                                           
Great aunt Jenny Criss with my mother, Mildred Goldfoot
She was married in November 20, 1905 to Nathan Goldfoot in Council, Idaho, where her sisters Bessie was married to Sam Criss and Jennie was married to Harry Criss and Louis Jermulowske was single and living in Council in 1901 or 1902.  He didn't marry until 1908 and that was in Portland, OR.  9/11/04  I received information from Idaho Historical Society on their marriage.  They were married at 8:00a.m. by the Justice of the Peace in Council, Idaho. "The ceremony which made M. Goldfoot and Miss Addie Jarmulosky man and wife was performed at Council at 8 o'clock a. m. Friday, by D. J. Richardson in his usual manner of impressive dignity.  From the "Weiser Scene-Weekly signal, Weiser, Idaho, Wed. Nov 29, 1905 Pg 5 column 3. Witnesses were: Samuel Criss & Harry Criss, and Jenny Criss.
 She probably lived in Cuprum, Idaho with her sisters, a small mining town close to Council before she married.

Nathan's father was Movsha ben Josel Goldfus b: 1836 in Telsiai.  d: November 8, 1878 in Telsiai.  So he died when Nathan was 7 years old.  This is interesting as my father was named Moses " Moshe" Goldfoot and was a 2nd son with Charles 2 years older.  Movsha's wife was Beile (Beila).
                                                                         
Movsha's father was Iosel Josel Symka ben Yankel Goldfus.  One of his other sons was Avrohom Abraham Haim Goldfus b: c1820.   

                                                                  Ireland

"A permanent settlement of Jews in Ireland was definitely established in the late fifteenth century. Following their expulsion from Portugal in 1496, some of these Marrano Jews settled on Ireland's south coast. One of them, William Annyas, was elected as mayor of Youghal, County Cork, in 1555, there was also Francis Annyas (Ãnes) a three time Mayor of Youghal in 1569, 1576 and 1581."

In Dublin, I had found Nathan, our grandfather,  married to a Lena Goldberg on February 21, 1893. He was listed as a commercial traveler and needed no license.    A witness was Leah Goldberg, her mother, b:c1850.  Her father was Naftolee Goldberg, b: c1845, a capmaker.   She was from someplace in Russia. In June 1893 he was at Londonderry, Ireland, a port city,  heading for Quebec, Canada.  By June 14, 1893, he was headed for Winnipeg, Canada on a ship, Parisian,  listed as single and first arriving on that date in Quebec, Canada.  They had his listed as Nathan Goldfort. (Nathan: June 14, 1893 on Parisian ship of Allen line (British 1881-) from Londonderry, Ireland to Winnipeg at age 22. b: 1871.)  That marriage didn't last long, about only 4 months.  We knew that he had previously been married without any issue, and wanted a family, but that was it.  I haven't been able to ever find him living in Canada.

Nathan in 1893 lived at 13 Arbutus Place, SCR.
A researcher told me about this information.  I can't remember which one it was but he was born in 1949.  Nathan lived at 13 Arbutus Place, South  Circular Road, Dublin Ireland in 1893 when he married Lena Goldberg.  I found this about the address: (I (not my grandfather)  was born in 1949 in a nursing home located just down the street at 102 South Circular Road, Portobello, (now renumbered as no. 18), which house had been the home of the President’s father, the first Chief Rabbi of Ireland, Isaac Herzog, throughout the 1920s. (He later moved the short distance to 33, Bloomfield Avenue for the remaining years of his ministry here before becoming Chief Rabbi of Eretz Israel.) I was accordingly born in the same house where Chaim Herzog spent most of his Dublin childhood and where his gifted brother, the late Ya’acov Herzog, had been born in 1921."  Nathan left this addresss, at least 4 months later after February 21, 1893 when he married Lena.

By 1897, 3,088 Jews remained in Telsiai, Lithuania which was  (51% of Telsiai's population. ) All would be killed in the Holoscaust of WWII.

Another researcher sent me this piece. "-He indicated in the 1910 census that he had arrived in the U.S. in 1896. So presumably, he was in Canada from 1893 to 1896. As the ship's arrival indicated that he was on his way to Winnipeg, we may assume that he was either there or in one of the other Canadian prairie cities with a Jewish population. Winnipeg has city directories for 1890 and 1897, but nothing in-between. I have access to the Canadian records on ancestry, but could not find him. My great-grandmother's brothers were in Alberta at that time. It was truly the wild west in those days. " 1910 would be the last census for him as he died on July 19, 1912 in Portland, Oregon.

Nathan's 1st cousin was LOUIS Yehudah Leib ben "Hyman-"Louis Goldfus", b: November 19, 1867 in Telsiai, d: March 18, 1955 in Capetown, South Africa, who was the grandfather of Ian Goldfoot.   Louis's father was Avrohom Abraham Haim Goldfus b: abt 1820 in Telsiai.

Avrohom (Abraham) Haim Goldfus b: c1820 seems to be a common ancestor for both myself and my brother and Ian Goldfoot and his sister, Denise.  David and I are his great grandniece and great grandnephew; and Ian Goldfoot and sister Denise are his great grandson and great granddaughter.

                                                                             
David Goldfoot, son of Maurice and Ian Goldfoot, son of Solomon:  3rd cousins
David Alan Goldfoot and Ian Goldfoot are therefore 3rd cousins by genealogy.   Interestingly, DNA has David and Ian as 2nd cousins with me as Ian's 3rd cousin on FTDNA.
                                                                             
Ian's father was SOLOMON "Shlomo" "Solly" Goldfoot b: August 1904 in Dublin, Ireland; d: February 14, 1978 Capetown/Johannesburg, South Africa.  His mother was Mary Alpert b: 1906 Kilmarnock, Scotland, d: bef 1943 Johannesburg, South Africa.

Mary died  and Solomon remarried in 1943 to Jenny "Genundel"bat Yosef Shmuel Frankel.  They had a daughter, Denise Goldfoot.

It seems that many Jewish Lithuanians made their way to England and then Dublin and onto South Africa.  When I emigrated to Israel, I found that the education department had been developed by South Africans who were then the heads of departments.  They must have arrived earlier than we Americans.  Abba Eban certainly was one.  50,000 Jews still live in Johannesburg, South Africa.

A cousin I had learned about who is known to Ian Goldfoot is Stanley Goldfoot b: 1914 in South Africa.  He is also our 3rd cousin through genealogy.  Stanley was the Chief of Intelligence for the Stern Group (called gang by the British) in Palestine.  I met him while living in Israel from 1980-end of 1985.  We met at the KING DAVID HOTEL in Jerusalem.  I asked how I would know him and he replied, "Don't worry.  I'll know you." I've added him on the genealogy tree below.  Stanley is Ian's 2nd cousin.  Since then, we met at his home in Jerusalem.

Another 3rd cousin I have contacted with is also from South Africa and is a Gochin who were from Papile, Lithuania.  His ancestor had married a Goldfoot lady.

One other I want to mention is one of 2 heads of the Halpern & Branches group on FTDNA.  I found out that we are connected to Rabbi Samson Wertheimer b: 1658 Worms, Germany, d: 1724 Vienna, Austria  He in turn was known to connect to RASHI b: 1040 Troyes, France d: 1105 Troyes, France, and he was known to connect to King David of Israel b: 1010 BCE-d: 970 BCE

3/11/08  Oral history from Stanley Goldfoot and Denise's father, Solomon Goldfoot was that they were descendants of  Vilna Gaon, who was Elijah Ben Solomon Zalman.  1720-1797.  Talmudist.  He was born in Lithuania and was early famed for his scholarship.  From 1740-1745 he traveled among the Jewish communities of Poland and Germany, settling in Vilna where he taught and later founded his own academy.  He lived in seclusion and refused rabbinic office.  He was called a saint and a scholar.  He led the opposition to the Hasidim in Lithuania, ordering their excommunication and the destruction of their literature.  His obdurate attitude checked the spread of Hasidism in Lithuania.  When he was about 60, he set out unaccompanied for Palestine but returned before reading it.  His reputation lies primarily in the field of halakhah.  He sought to establish critical texts of the authoritative rabbinic writings, resorting also to emendations.  He avoided pilpul and based his views and rulings upon the plain meaning of the text.  He regarded highly the early kabbalistic works, and was extremely critical of philosophy.  He was interested in secular studies insofar as they threw light on the Torah, but he opposed the Haskalah.  His works include commentaries on the Bible, annotations on the Talmud, Midrash, and Zohar, works on mathematics, the geography of Palestine, Hebrew grammar, etc.  He exercised a vast influence on his own and succeeding generations, the Mitnaggedim regarding him as their spiritual leader. 
4/1/15  and 6/17/15,  He died at age 92 from old age, on Lithuania death list of LitvakSIG.  On Tevet 5.  also from Jewishgen through Dennis Khan.

Through genealogy using this very blog and through DNA, David and I finally met our 3rd cousin, Ian.   It just happened that the two men were living in the same state.  What was nice was that we met on a Friday for a Shabbat dinner. Through DNA, we find that Ian and David are 2nd cousins but I'm a 3rd cousin, which we are according to our genealogy.    Ian and David share 174.29451cMs over 29 segments. They also share their Y haplogroup line of Q-M242.   Ian and one of David's sons share 113.4722cMs over 20 segments.  They are  listed as 3rd cousins. Information given doesn't show details of how many times removed one is.  This son and Ian should be 3rd cousins once removed.    Ian and I share 143.29375cMs over 23 segments.  We are  3rd cousins. Ian and my son, Steve, of course are 3rd cousins once removed and share 110.98878cMs over 18 segments.  Ian and Steve's wife  are 5th cousins and share 31.07031cMs over 12 segments.
I have a 1st cousin, Nate Goldfoot.  His wife tested and also matches Ian as a 5th cousin sharing 66.54338cMs over 22 segments.  I could go on and on with relatives matching Ian.

I had found many Goldfus people in Lithuania and did add a few here and there by dates, but most all were found, and on the website of Jewish Genealogy (Jewishgen.org. )with the knowledge of who their fathers were.    My findings were even checked by a lady who also had Goldfoot on her tree, Gene Lepere, who is a Hirschhorn and author of 2 books, NEVER PASS THIS WAY AGAIN and a book about her father, Little Man in a Big Hurry: The Life of Joseph H. Hirshhorn, Uranium King and Art Collector 

All this and Nathan's grave in Hebrew says that his father was Chaim Itzak Goldfus. I had found a Chaim but none with a middle name.   We had known Nathan to have no middle name.  Since our grandmother is the one who ordered the headstone, I presume she knew something, but haven't been able to find a record according to this piece of information.  One researcher thought that the name, "Abraham," was significant to connect the South African with us, and lo and behold, Nathan's middle child, the one who died as an infant, was Abraham.  With DNA, we do know we are connected.
