This tree is built from roots found in the "journal" kept by my late Uncle and sent to me by a cousin about 2007, as the most unexpected birthday present ever. Plus relatives who have shared some of their family history. Added to this foundation are many families found via online sources such as JewishGen, Geni and many other sources. However, YOU can play a vital role by filling in missing information for many "Female/Male UNKNOWN" people, birth and death dates or other vital information.
