JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Update on Zelda(Faikes)Segal-May have lived in Philadelphia-Seek help in tracing her #general
In case my posting >from earlier today did not go through, I am sending another. I
have been in contact with a cousin on this side of the family. She could not tell
me much. What she did tell me was that Zelda FAIKES was married to a Morris SEGAL.
Since I did not have this information, this was helpful. She also was pretty sure
that they also lived in Philadelphia.
Zelda was born about 1889-1890 and was born in Russia. I am not sure how old her
husband was of if he also was >from Russia. I have tried looking for a Morris listed
with a wife Zelda, but am coming up empty. I know that Segal could be spelled a
number of ways and believe me I am trying them all with no luck. I need help in
tracking down a death date and obituary on Zelda.
I do know that she was still living according to the 1959 obituary on her sibling
Jennie(Faikes)FRANKEL. Both Zelda & Jennie were older siblings to my grandfather
Milton Faikes who is thew baby of the family and last known living sibling. He is
about 93-94 years old and in a nursing home. I have been trying to research his
side of the family for the past 3 years with lots of difficulty, but have made
some discoveries within the last year or so.
I am trying to find out the names of all the siblings and the whereabouts of their
descendants. So, If anyone can help me track down Zelda Segal I would be forever
