My father's paternal grandmother Freya/Freda b. 1860, married surname
KASSEMOFF, came >from Rezekne in Latvia c. 1905. Her first child was
born in 1891. The family moved to Leeds, UK c. 1904.
On Latvian Archive documents I have, it says that the family lived
previously in Antolepti, Novo Alexandrov (now Zarasi), Lithuania.
A relative, who has unfortunately since died, told me that she thinks
Freya's maiden surname was SOKOLOV.
from Freya's tombstone d. 24 March 1946 and is buried in Leeds, UK,it says her father was Michael, another piece added to the puzzle.
My late father's name was Michael.
If anyone has a SOKOLOV or SOKOL or any other combination with SOKOL
in it, with Michael on the tree, b. c. 1840 (if Freya was born 1860),
please contact me.
Alternatively, if anyone has a father Michael and daughter Freya on
their tree, with those approximate above dates, also please contact me.
I have looked through quite a few records on JewishGen but havent found
a SOKOLOV yet with a Michael and Freya. On the ALD part 2, where I have
put Michael and Freya in the search parameters, I have over 8000
records to trawl through!
Thanks in advance.
