Heree are my family details:

FISH, lived in Salford, originally >from somewhere in Galicia, I wish I knew
where.
Somehow related to: Knoll and Solomon, who emigrated to the U.S. around the
turn of the century or a little later. Solomon family wound up in Lynn,
Mass.

FLASH, same information

Millie (Malka) Flash b.1872 d.1950
married Harris (Hershel) Fish b.1863 d 1943.
I don't know what year they emigrated, but I suspect either they were
married in England, or their families emigrated together, because Malka's
family lived in Salford also.

They had many children: Joseph (my grandfather), Johnny, Wolfie, Jack,
Barnett, Rebecca and Mendel.

Interestingly, Ann Rabinowitz, of this list, and I figured out that one of
this Fish family, perhaps my grandfather (I've forgotten) dated her mother!

I have been told that Malka's Flash's father name was David, perhaps Moishe
David as her tombstone says that she was the daughter of Reb. Moishe.

David Flash married ? and had Solly, Hennie and Malka.

David's brother Jacob also lived in Salford, married Yetta. They had three
children: Ginnie, Philip Isaac, and Molly.

A branch of the FISH family emigrated to Philadelphia, and I believe that I
have located them, although I can only speculate how they are related at
this point.

I visited Salford 7 years and miraculously connected with Jack's daughter,
(my father's first cousin). At that time I took as much information as I
could, but have no way of going backwards as they were very sketchy on this
information and some of it sounded more like myth!

Glad this list is happening.
