A few days ago, I was contacted by someone who had seen David AUGENBLICK in my
data on FTJP. I could not tell him anything much about the family of this
man, who was married to a cousin of my grandfather.

While we were speaking, I mentioned that one Rebecca Augenblick was the mother
of Samuel Greenberg, who was married to Rosa Pikholz and that the last I had
on that couple was >from the 1920 census, along with their young son Max.
Turns out that my new contact indeed knew this family, though he had the son's
given name as Martin, which explains why I haven't been able to find thim.

I don't generally list the names of spouses' parents, although I have them
noted in my database when I know them, but here is a good example why we
should include those as individual entries. Had I not had a different
Augenblick entirely, we would never have found the Augenblick which was of
interest to both of us.

I don't know that I will begin chasing down the ones I don't know, but I do
plan to revise my database over time to include those spouses' parents' names
which I know anyway.
