JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen BENISH family from Chicago & Woodland Hills CA #general
I'm looking for descendants of Bessie BENISH nee LUBINER, born
probably in Pinsk about 1882, immigrated in 1913, married to Maurice.
The children were Dora, Albert, Meyer, Harry & Edward. I find the
family in Chicago on the 1920 & 1930 census reports. I find some
references to Albert's daughter, Cheryl Anne, who was a stage actress
in Highland Park in the 1950s, & later was elected Miss Chicago, & to
her sister, Janice, born, I think, in 1948. As late as 1997, Harry
was living in Woodland Hills, CA.
A cousin of theirs would like to meet members of the family, whom she
knew as a child.
Best, Steve Orlen Tucson Arizona
