I am trying to trace descendants of Harris, Jacob and Charles Cohen,
founding members of the Ohave Shalom Mariampol Congregation in Chicago.
Today it is the Anshe Sholom B'nai Israel congregation.
I have written to the temple and had no response, and to the author of a
book on Landsmanshaften in Chicago that includes information on the
Mariampoler Aid Society. Again, I had no response. I had a response, but
no success, with the Chicago Jewish Historical Society.
Apparently several Cohens are listed in the 100th anniversary yearbook
for Ohave Sholom Mariampole (1970).
Does anyone belong to that temple or know any Cohens who do, who are
descendants of the founders? Does anyone know whether all of the
original Mariampolers were >from that city or >from surrounding villages
