Dear friends,

Several weeks ago in this forum I described my attempts to help Lipman
Radzik, an 87-year-old survivor, find any living relatives. Many of you
responded, for which I am grateful, but your input did not lead to living
relatives. I sent to the Polish Archives for birth and marriage records for
Lipman's direct ancestors and--to my amazement--find that he and I are
almost certainly related. It is even possible that his grandmother and my
great-grandmother were one and the same person! He was trembling when I
told him of this possibility, as was I.

I have posted two of ten pertinent records to Viewmate. I have had to break
them into sections to meet the size constraints of Viewmate. Ordinarily, I
would ask only for extract of key information. However, in this case, I am
seeking full translations of the documents. One or more of the birth
records is unusually long for a birth record and probably contains
significant information beyond the basic data that one ordinarily expects in
a birth record. There is almost certainly something unusual going on here
as regards the parents of the children born.

If the records correspond to my preliminary hypothesis, I will be able to
send Lipman Radzik a photo of the grandmother that he never knew--and
connect him to living cousins.

I thank any and all of you in advance for whatever help you can provide.
The photos are at
And carry the file numbers VM 10062, 10063, 10064, 10065, 10066.
