Hello To All Researchers
I am trying to find out as much as I can about my ancestors on my
mother's side. I don't know very much about them and I am hoping there
are some descendants out there who can tell me what I want to know. I
am looking for any information on my great-grandparents David & Anna
Rakoff and also Samuel & Emma Mendelson. Samuel is supposedly brother
to Anna. I have a lot of old photos, most >from the new york and others
from russia. The pictures I believe originally belonged to mygreat-grandmother so the people in these photos has to be her family.
I am hoping some one out there can help me unravel some of the mystery
surrounding these families, because I can't seem to find anything on
them. I have put quite a lot of those photos on the jewishgen site, so
you can see for yourself what they look like. Hopefully someone will
be able to identify some of them for me. I do have a few documents
along with the photos. I have David & Anna's petitions and
naturalization papers. I also have Anna's death record. I also have a
marriage record dated 1940 even though they got married before then
according to the other papers. Thats one mystery I would like solved.
Why did they get married again. They had two Kids Ruth And Murray
birth years 1922 & 1923. Any information and help is appreciated.
