Hello. I have been following and enjoying. I was told by my born Jewish friend that a Jewish man with ancestors from the south found out that he had black family members. He found letters that told of an ancestor who people thought had slaves but actually they were wives and children. This was done to preserve Jewishness. The Jewish man found these black Jewish descendants and told them of their Jewish heritage. Isn’t this wonderful? My maiden name is Scriven. My DNA showed some Moroccan Jewish ancestor; maybe Ashkenazi too. Anyway my dad’s family covered mirrors in the home when family died. I recently leaned this was Jewish. My dad’s name was William Scriven (died in 1991), his dad was Leonard Scriven, his granddad was Samuel Scriven, and great granddad was Abram/Abraham Scriven. Abram/Abraham Scriven’s wife name is listed as Abba. We found this through researching ancestry.com. I cannot go back any farther.
My mom’s maiden name is Myers. Her dad’s name was Julius Myers, who died in the early1970’s. My mother worked for Jews most of her adult life.
About 10 years ago, I was drawn to Torah and everything Jewish. My cousin on my dad’s side, Lacy Scriven, use to work for a Jewish man in NY who told him years ago that he had some Jewish ancestry.
