got married in 1900 in Dvinsk;...Where my mother's older sibling, who died
as a baby, is buried (probably somewhere in Daugavpil or Riga)....To locate
any brothers or sisters of my mother's father Gedalie NADEL; and to determine
which military organization and war left him with a scar on his neck from
