Preview Of An Excerpt From "More Shit And Other Stuff...": The Long Fight & A Huge Apology That I Anticipate

To make a long story short, getting libelled over Forgiving Mary Gaydos has been no fun. I certainly believe that a huge apology is coming down the pipeline, God willing, meanwhile. As I stated, there has been a long fight—especially with some relatives whom insist that I'm blaming Great-Great-Grandma Rusnak, despite that I've insisted the contrary.

Meanwhile, I've done more research, and a couple of facts were both reconsidered and brought to light. For example [as JewishGen, AncestryDNA, and Google Maps will show, and I will screenshoot for the actual section].:


  1. The Košice Rusnaks actually had their start in Eger, Hungary.
  2. Some Košice Rusnaks travelled between Romania, Hungary, and Slovakia. Some also even lived in Romania.
  3. Eger is only 59 hours from Kisbánya (today, Chiuzbaia) in terms of walking distance, and 29 hours from Košice—which is 52 hours from Chiuzbaia—and Jews as much as gentiles walked long distances like that back then to visit family and friends for every occasion from b'rit milot to levayot.
  4. The main cousin who insists on putting up a fight shows as my father's fourth to sixth cousin when he is actually a known third cousin. By the way, as I found out in a Jewish Genealogy group on Facebook, at least one DNA website is still showing "Khazar" DNA in some Jews when genealogists such as Kevin Alan Brook have thoroughly disproven and debunked that any Khazar DNA is in any Ashkenazi Jew! Also by the way, AncestryDNA is still in 2.0 for its atDNA-testing process; and I still remember when I was one of many Ashkenazi Jews asking AncestryDNA to really look more carefully at "Eastern European" DNA results.
Relatedly, I've told and retold the particularly-insistent cousin the following, among other things (including some of the above facts):

  1. No person wakes up and decides to make up shit such as that an ancestor betrayed relatives during the Holocaust, especially if he or she didn't know that he or she is Jewish for years.
  2. atDNA is different than Y-DNA and mtDNA.
  3. I was certainly skeptical that he or she had a conversation with an in-law cousin's relative. I even asked him or her, "Are you telling the truth?" (Needlessly to say that I ended up getting the sense that he or she isn't, because I certainly would've gotten accused of lying and of other chillulim HaShem by that relative.).
  4. I still have yet to see translations of certain letters, and nobody just asks for money in the midst of a depression (and since it turned out that at least some of the letters were from 1948, they could've well been from Rusnaks whom ended up in Germany—Yehoshua Rusznak whom was born in 1920, for example, died in Germany in 1998. For my part, though, I remembered incorrectly whose son he was and when he died: I thought "Vilmos" and "1999", not "David 'Dudus'" and "1998". Incidentally. I've should've mentioned that nobody just asked for money after World War Two, either, despite that the U.S. economy boomed back from the Depression because of wartime labor which was done by women and men whom couldn't join the U.S. Armed Forces.)
  5. I still remember Grandaunt MaryAnn writing about the reunions being first held "[a]fter Julia [d. July 5, 1945] and Andrew [d. February 9, 1947] died", not about when the letters were written. Grandaunt MaryAnn left quite the impressions that Foczkos asked for money during the Depression.
As I stated before, then, I believe that a huge apology is coming down the pipeline after the long fight that certain cousins have put up—as even my father (ironically) states, "You can't change history"!

Father Maskell Still Did It, Even Though His Friend Was the Hitman. As For His Victims and Children(?)

They could use his DNA profile to see if any of his rape victims were impregnated by him. By the way, that's another reason that I'm pro-life: do people want to destroy living evidence of rape? These doctors and prosecutors should encourage girls and women whom are impregnated by rape to keep the babies, extract DNA from the mothers' wombs while they're in the womb, and use the DNA as evidence against the rapists, and then either let the women keep the babies or adopt them out, even to rape victims whom wanted children and were left infertile as a result of being raped.

As for my reaction to the DNA evidence and assuming that no evidence with Maskell's DNA on it was destroyed: "HOLY ****!" So, he had his friend do the hitjob, which would explain the bloody shirt, and either clean off his own ring or use another ring. His friend was basically a murder-for-hire hitman.
His victims must be wondering why the friend's long-since ex wife didn't come forward before. He was evil and shrewd enough, though to use his friend as a hitman was even more shrewdly evil.
Also, you don't take someone to a murder victim's body & further assault a victim of sexual battery if you weren't complicit. Maskell did. The assault of further battery and murder was, of course, the infamous "Do you see what happens when you say bad things about people?"
Incidentally, now that we know where Maskell's buried, I would not be surprised if someone tries to vandalize his grave. Many are still understandably angry.

By the Way, Kibosh the Khazar Theory Altogether

When I talked to the website owner of Khazaria.com and asked him about the testing of Khazar skeletons, I received the following reply, in part:

Why are we still talking about the Khazars? They aren't involved inour ancestry at all and archaeologists and historians say it may bedifficult to distinguish Khazars proper from the other peoples of Khazaria,plus I'm not aware of anybody who has tested Khazar skeletons or plans to, butyou are welcome to ask around now that Russians have successfully testedmany populations like the Yamnaya and the Mal'ta.Based on the latest evidence I would say the Khazars are Volga Finnicintermixed with East-Central Asian Turks and other assorted peoples, andtheir Turkic element is the same one found in other Turks and Mongoliansaround Eurasia, a particular affinity never found in Ashkenazim....In lieu of ancient DNA, modern populationshave proven to be good proxies to determine ethnicity. Did you see my recentarticle "The Chinese Lady who Joined the AshkenazicPeople"?http://issuu.com/jewishtimesasia/docs/mar2015/19Some Ashkenazim are also descended from a Korean-related people, from amore recent Asian-Ashkenazic marriage.
Also by the way, I compare Dr. Himladevi "Himla" Soodyall to "Dr." Eran Elhaik. I don't know what agenda "Dr." Soodyall has, although I can ascertain that she attempted to delegitimize the Lemba as much as "Dr." Elhaik attempted to delegitimize Ashkenazi Jews.

PS My dad's Ancestry atDNA in even Analysis 2.0* does, in fact, show a very-slight amount of Middle Eastern atDNA. It also shows a tiny bit of East Asian, Melanesian, Scandinavian, and Finnish/Northwest Russian atDNA. The Melanesian atDNA is probably related to the East Asian atDNA, and Scandinavian atDNA to the Finnish/Northwest Russian atDNA.


*"We create estimates for your genetic ethnicity by comparing your DNA to the DNA of other people who are native to a region. The AncestryDNA reference panel (version 2.0) contains 3,000 DNA samples from people in 26 global regions."
The AncestryDNA panel does need to be balanced**, though:


The updated AncestryDNA ethnicity estimation V2 reference panel contains 3,000 samples carefully selected as described to represent 26 distinct global regions (Table 3.1), each with a somewhat distinct genetic profile. As a comparison, our Beta panel represented only 22 distinct global regions.

Table 3.1: The Final AncestryDNA V2 Ethnicity Reference Panel

Regional Polygon Construction

As described above, we divide the globe into 26 overlapping geographic regions. Each region represents a population with a somewhat distinct genetic profile. Where possible, we use the known geographic locations of our samples to guide the delineation of regional boundaries. Figure 3.6 shows an example of the information used to define regional polygons.

For a more-accurate panel, they should have 115-16 ("115.384615"). Also, the selection should not be "carefully selected as described". The selection needs to be as random as possible. This cannot be accepted:


Before using the reference set to estimate ethnicities of AncestryDNA customers, we perform several experiments to lend support to the quality of this new reference set. This involves testing the performance of our ethnicity estimation procedure on the reference set of samples. (See Section 4 below for details regarding the statistical method used for ethnicity estimation.)
First, we use the new panel to do a leave-one-out analysis. In this experiment, we remove one sample from the reference panel and then use the remaining panel to estimate the ethnicity of the sample that has been removed. We repeat this process for every sample in the panel and then look at the average predicted ethnicity for each region in the set. Figure 3.4 shows the results of this experiment as a box plot.

Figure 3.4: Leave-one-out analysis of the V2 reference panel. Here we plot the results of an experiment in which each sample is removed from the reference set one-by-one and its ethnicity is estimated using the remaining panel samples. Each bar represents the average correctly predicted ethnicity for all samples from a given region. It is clear from this graph that for the majority of samples in each region, we predict at least 80% of the genetic ethnicity to be from the correct region. However, there are exceptions. In particular, our average prediction accuracy for samples from Great Britain, Western Europe, Iberian Peninsula, and Mali are not quite as high. There are many factors affecting the accuracy of these numbers, most importantly the number of reference samples in the panel for each region and the genetic distinctness of each region.

The purpose of this analysis is twofold. First, reference panel samples with poor performance in the leave-one-out analysis were removed. This included samples from individuals whose leave-one-out ethnicity did not represent their ethnic group of origin. (See for instance, Figure 3.5) Second, the leave-one-out plots allow us to define population boundaries and demonstrate our ability to accurately estimate the ethnicities of our reference panel samples using our method (see next section).

Figure 3.5: Removing Reference Panel Candidates. Leave-one-out estimation for a Reference Panel Candidate with 8 terminal ancestors from the Ivory Coast and Ghana region. While this sample was initially included as a candidate of the reference panel for the Ivory Coast/Ghana region, the sample’s leave-one-out ethnicity estimation reveals primarily Benin/Togo ancestry. As a result, this sample was removed from the reference panel.
In scientific studies, this is unacceptable unless it is for case studies and/or other non-generalizable/non-extrapolatable studies:


There are two sources of error that limit generalizability: sampling error (chance variation) and sample bias (constant error) which results from inadequate research design. Sampling error (but not sample bias) can be taken into account using statistics.
Probability samples are representative of the population. They permit generalization to the population from which they are drawn. There are two types of probability samples: Random and stratified.
Random - each individual in the population has an equal chance of being selected for the sample.
Stratified - a miniature representation of the larger population with regard to proportions within selected strata (e.g., gender, education, socioeconomic level). Individuals are randomly selected within strata.
table of random numbers or the random number function in Excel can be used to select a random sample from a population.
If a sample is, thus, "poor", it should be put in an "Indeterminable" or a "Poor Sample" category. 

Some would argue, "Well, what about other studies that don't have very-balanced numbers"? Given that numerous studies on Ashkenazi Jews, Lemba Jews, and other groups have been done overtime—and most have shown similar or equal results—the studies balance the numbers at least somewhat in the end. Therefore, the argument about "other studies that don't have very-balanced numbers" is moot at this point.


 ** Stratified Sampling – This technique divides the population into meaningful homogenous or similar groups based on a certain characteristic (e.g., gender, race, socioeconomic status) and then selects a simple random sample from each group. [For example, if you were interested in the affects of student motivation on academic achievement, particularly by grade level, you would divide the population into their respective grade levels and then randomly select an equal number of 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders.]

"'Reform Jews' DNA"?

That's about one of the most-insulting search results that I've ever seen. Just because some Anti Messianics (including some Reform Jews), Anti Semites, Self-Hating Jews, and others choose to play games regarding Jewishness and DNA does not mean that Messianic and Non-Reform Non-Messianic Jews ought to be playing games regarding Jewishness and DNA. We do not have to sink to Jesse Straus' and others' levels.

Let them be the fools who claim that Jewishness is religious and not ethnic. Besides, of course "Judaism is a religion and not a race"! Judaism has always been the religion and Jewishness the ethnic ("racial") identity.

The Ancient Sabra and the Modern Diasporan Jews

Here's what an Ancient Jew would have looked like (See Khazaria.com as well):


Kevin Alan Brook informs, "Libyan Jews are mainly Israelites who may have mixed somewhat with Berbers.

Yemenim (and I knew of one whose dad is a Yemeni Cohen, although her mom is Ashkenazi, at UMBC) "(Temanim) are a mix of Yemenite Arabs and Israelites."





What ישוע Himself may have looked like

(Side profile of above. Lighten his skin a little, and do something with the hair. Then you have my Uncle Gary [See below. This is a publicly-viewable picture from 2010.])



I just realized that my late granddad is in this picture. By the way, he was much darker in his younger days, even from 1989 (when he was 53 and my dad got married in July of that year) to 2006 (when he was 70 and I was effectively estranged from my dad in November of that year.

(Incidentally, I never saw him again, although I did talk with him and see pictures of him. Needless to say, he was not amused that I found out about our Jewish heritage. In one of our final conversations, if not the final one, he changed his story from the Stefan Czarniecki schpiel to "If we had any Jewish blood, I don't know about it." To be fair, though, I don't know if he knew that we are related to Kirk Douglas [who happened to be a Danilovich]—neither did I, and I've been pretty bold about how I feel about it.)




Then this is the front view:









For comparison:




(Uncle Gary's profile picture from March 28, 2009)

By the way, my mom talks about how I have more of the nose of my Aunt Mary (ז''ל) than I do of my dad's "bulbous" one (Fine; whatever; it [Dad's nose]'s still a [stereotypically-] Jewish one.).

In other words, we can pretty much conclude:


  1. The Ancient Jews were not Black.
  2. Modern Diasporan Jews (and our brothers and sisters b'Eretz) are indeed Jews.
  3. "The main ethnic element of Ashkenazim (German and Eastern European Jews), Sephardim (Spanish and Portuguese Jews), Mizrakhim (Middle Eastern Jews), Juhurim (Mountain Jews of the Caucasus), Italqim (Italian Jews), and most other modern Jewish populations of the world is Israelite."
There you have it (and chillhomie7 can chill out now. If "chill out" isn't clear enough....).
