• Is it true that "Weinstein" is German for "tartar"?

    Best answer: It's a Yiddish name with German origins.

    According to Wikipedia "Weinstein is a German language surname meaning wine stone, referring to the crystals of potassium bitartrate resulting from the process of fermenting grape juice." but it doesn't explain how it became a surname.

  • Websites like family search.com that makes you view records for free?

    Best answer: I am not sure what you are asking. No website makes you view records. They have them available if your wish to view them. With any website you should distinguish between records and subscriber submitted family trees which should be verified with actual records. The family trees on any websites are not records... show more
    Best answer: I am not sure what you are asking. No website makes you view records. They have them available if your wish to view them. With any website you should distinguish between records and subscriber submitted family trees which should be verified with actual records. The family trees on any websites are not records but subscribers' submission and even when you see the absolute same information on the same people from a ton of subscribers that doesn't mean it is accurate as too many people copy without verifying. No way do the websites hire people to verify what their subscribers submit as it would be far too costly.

  • Is the genealogy records collected by the church of the Later Day Saints (Mormons) accurate?

    I'm using their data base, which is free on www.familysearch.org. I have found a conflict in the surname on an 1841 census. I got the information originally from the census from Ancestry.co. It was very clear that the husband and wife were not married because the children had the mother's surname. But... show more

It was very clear that the husband and wife were not married because the children had the mother's surname. But when I looked at the same census from www.familysearch.org the surname of the children and mother and father were all the same. I wondered if they changed the surname because www.familysearch.org is run by a christian organisation.

    I identify as a black woman but my grandmother on my moms side was multicultural. She was black white and Native American. But that’s really all I know about what I am. The issue is black could be anywhere in Africa or even the Caribbean. I know there’s a DNA test that focuses on African ancestry and you can find out your tribe and what not but is there a DNA test to find out if I have Latin or Caribbean roots? Like Jamaican or Dominican or something? I’m just curious

  • Did you do the Ancestry research ? and do you believe it ?

    Best answer: I'd be very careful with this issue.

    Best answer: I'd be very careful with this issue. Remember, you are paying for a 'service' so by that definition you will be given what you want to hear, rather than what may be discovered - if anything at all-
    I'm always skeptic of Americans who have 'traced' their lineage to some obscure Danish royal bloodline for example, as records of that nature don't exist in Europe, Ireland, the Uk, any of those places. They may follow a few 'select' family dynasty's -if- it is of developmental significance within that country or some such figure of historical influence. Impossible though, to have every person in a country the size of the US be related to William Wallace for example, given that he never had any offspring in the first instance, and records were not kept from that era. It's unknown where he even lived in Scotland - Accurately. I digress -
    As an example, people who were adopted in say, Scotland are unable to trace any predecessor beyond a generation or two - at most.
    So, be careful... When it involves a transaction, it pretty much guarantees that in order to exist, it must yeild results that will continue to be desirably consumed...
    Simply put - Modern day deception.

  • Do you people agree with Maxi, when she/he says that people who are born in America are ethnic Americans?

    Best answer: Ethnicity is culture. If you are second or third generation, speak only English, and have a TV, you are almost certainly American.

  • I can't find a few death certificates in America, is there anyone who has a lot of research experience who could help me out? email me.?

    Best answer: Arizona, Missouri and West Virginia have some death certificates on-line.
    www.familysearch has some on-line for many places.
    For others you will have to write to the county or state in question, with a check.
