JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Thanks + STORCH / STORCK from Gorlice #general


I believe I've thanked individually the many responders to last
week's STORCH / STORCK post, but if any replies got lost or I
missed anyone, please know how grateful I am.

No one recognized the families. Several people hunted without
luck for Regina's obit in 1965, which could include where daughter
Shirley was living then, and husband's name if married.
Looking over my public tree on Ancestry, Renee Steinig found
missing 1915 census entry with transcription errors (Lehl for
Lilly, Charleie for Charlie, Ann for Aron - I've entered
corrections on Ancestry). And Johanna Becker found missing 1930
census entry with birthplaces reversed on census (he was born in
Austria, not Hungary, and she in Hungary, not Austria).

And so on to my next query:

The following STORCH members of my family are >from Gorlice:

-- Samuel / Osias? STORCH, arrived sometime before wife & children ?
-- Sime SOLOMON, b. 1848, arrived 1891 NY, with following children:

-- --- Herman / Chaim STORCH, b. 1881
-- --- Henry / Enoch STORCH, b. 1884

I would love to find any descendants of other STORCHs or SOLOMONs >from
Gorlice, including but not limited to the following:
