Privacy Yichud The end of the public wedding ceremony is marked by the breaking of a glass, usually a thin glass wrapped in a napkin to contain the fragments. Some customs placed it after the betrothals, but our western tradition is to perform it at the very end. Ancient custom designated that one of the wine cups be broken, although there was a difference of opinion as to which of the two wine cups. Maharil held that it was the nuptials cups, because the breaking immediately followed the nuptial blessings.

Rema and most others held that it was the betrothal cup, and for good reason: Breaking the nuptials cup, over which the seven benedictions were recited, is a gross symbol when great concern at this moment is for making the marriage, not breaking it.

Parsar, That is incorrect, there is no evidence for it. Irish Travelers DNA has been examined and it matches the general Irish population very well, and more specifically the best county level match is Co Leitrim, near Northern Ireland.

They may ask to touch your hand first or hold an item of yours in their hands, but on the whole, they do not use any tools to aid their prescience. In the early 20th century, female readers of this type were also known as “fortune telling women” — and many of them were also members of the Spiritual Church movement.

One of the most famous of the old time fortune telling women was Aunt Caroline Dye. There are several styles and moths. You may read about them in my book “Throwing the Bones: The bones are thrown on a table and they are read much as tea-leaves are, by the pattern made and by the directions they point. This is fairly common in the South. CARD CUTTING Card cutters are considered a little old-fashioned these days, although some readers still like to start a reading by having their clients cut the deck and thus give them strong first impressions.

Card cutting itself usually involves having the client cut a card deck three times, using the left hand the hand that is closest to the heart. The top card on each stack is then turned and the cards are read as “Past,” “Present,” and “Future” on the query. Hoodoo card readers should not be confused with so-called Free Psychic Tarot Readers, who may or may not be authentic. The picture at the top of this page, painted by Harry Roseland around , shows an older black woman reading tea leaves for her young white client.

Tea leaf reading is an art that is particularly well known and practiced by Scottish, irish, and English people. It probably entered hoodoo during the 19th century, as a result of social contacts and intermarriage between African Americans and Anglo-Celtic Americans.

Abstract Complete sequencing of 62 mitochondrial DNAs mtDNAs belonging or very closely related to haplogroup H revealed that this mtDNA haplogroup—by far the most common in Europe—is subdivided into numerous subhaplogroups, with at least 15 of them H1—H15 identifiable by characteristic mutations. All the haplogroup H mtDNAs found in 5, subjects from 43 populations were then screened for diagnostic markers of subhaplogroups H1 and H3.

This survey showed that both subhaplogroups display frequency peaks, centered in Iberia and surrounding areas, with distributions declining toward the northeast and southeast—a pattern extremely similar to that previously reported for mtDNA haplogroup V. This has also some implications for disease studies.

Reality shows like “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” and ‘Gypsy Brides US’ are all about the bling and the brawls. And Sondra Celli is the woman behind that bling.

See my own post in the Irish Travelers link which got locked http: I did a google search and came up with those links. In the interest of saving the hamsters, do the lookups on your own.

Nov 21,  · Gypsies: Kings of Con. In August , a gypsy “family” was indicted in a $40 million fortune-telling scam. Members of the Marks family (pictured above on the way to court) convinced victims to hand over their jewelry, money and other valuables to be cleansed of evil spirits, promising to return the valuables once the evil spirits were exorcised.

So at least it would appear from where I am standing as a Gypsy, a Romani. To me this is double standards, but it would appear that that is exactly what is being done in the UK and other EU member states. The official recognition of Romani-Gypsies in the UK as an ethnic group is not worth the very paper it is written upon. When we then consider that, theoretically, traveling with trailer and stationing trailer anywhere as we used to do is now against the law and one can go to jail for that theoretically and lose one’s trailer and even one’s children into care the traveling Gypsy will soon also be a thing of the past in the UK and elsewhere and, voila, no more ethnic Gypsies and therefore no more protection needed.

Ethnic cleansing in a new way. But I, yet again, digressed. As to the law, however, there is definitely a two-tier system in place. They would not hesitate one nanosecond to investigate and prosecute would the grave be that of a Black person, an Asian, a Jew, or a Muslim. It still goes to prove, again, that British justice now there is a joke is still the best that money can buy. Now it would appear that, because dogs are considered ‘unclean’ in Islam search dogs will no longer be used by Police when mosques or Muslim homes are being searched for guns or explosives.

I have put a poster up at my door here at home informing everyone that this is a Romani Household and would they please not introduce dogs or cats into this house to which, as I mentioned it to them, high-ranking police officers have told me that that would not make one iota of a difference to them should they want to conduct a search of my home with dogs.

The rhesus negative blood factor is a recessive phenotype while the O rhesus positive factor is a dominant phenotype. Black wavy hair, brown eyes, copper to brown tanned oily skin are dominant phenotypes which the men who drew these cave paintings most likely possessed. The women most likely possessed dominant features as well but probably had hazel eyes and slightly lighter skin which may have been less oily.

These women were probably the carriers of the O positive blood factor. The women would have gathered wild fruits, seeds, and berries where they brought them back to thier campsite.

Big Fat Gypsy Weddings is a British documentary series broadcast on Channel 4, that explored the lives and traditions of several Irish Traveller families as they prepared to unite one of their members in marriage.

RomanyLinks Welcome to my web site. In any case its just an informal site. I have been researching not just Romany family History but also non Romany I consider myself to be non Romany as have always been brought up as one ,although my great grandparents on one side were as I was told by my eldest aunt “A Gypsy” who lived up on the common! My family have married into Romany hence why I started Romany reseach to trace my sister In laws family and it just grew from there!!

The Gypsies arrival in Britain was first recorded in in Scotland and in England. At Hampshire Record Office the earliest known document they have of Gypsies in the County, is an entry in Chawton’s parish records for For many hundreds of years it was a much loved home, mainly due to its abundance of herbs and other medicinal plants and,of course, its wild game and springs of fresh water. There were also places outside the forest which were popular with the Gypsies, such as Bournemouth,Poole and Fordingbridge on the edge of the Forest and all of the Cranborne Chase area.

Over the course of 30 years I have collected and recorded a vast amount of data on all the well known Romany families from all over England moreso on the West Country and Hampshire and Dorset Romanies. There will inevitably be some errors!
