JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Searching for descendants of Olga BURAKOFF (MELAMED/SEIGEL?) #general


Robert Mandelbaum
 

I'm searching for the descendants of Olga Burakoff, whose married name is
uncertain, but which might have been Melamed or Seigel. Olga was born in
Europe in approximately 1887 or a little earlier, and lived in New York
Cit after coming to the United States prior to World War I. In the early
1930s, it's possible that she lived in Brooklyn, and that one of her sons
worked as a lifeguard at Brighton Beach. By around 1953, she definitely
lived in "a non-Jewish building" in downtown Manhattan on Third Avenue,
right near the Daily Forward. Her husband had worked in a factory and had
had an accident in which he fractured his hip, which affected his ability
to work. Olga died in the late 1950s or early 1960s in New York. Any
information on Olga's descendants would be much appreciated.

Thank you very much.
