"I have been researching my family's genealogy since the 1980's. My father Louis (Leo) Lurie was one of 8 siblings from Bobruisk which is now in Belarus. His 3 oldest siblings were brought to the U.S. by an aunt and uncle.
The names of this aunt and uncle are: Harry and Ida Soloff Gorelick. Ida was a sister to my paternal grandmother, Matleh Lurie. Ida and Matleh also had a brother, Jacob Isaac. Their family name was Solovieff in Bobruisk or Soloff (in the U.S. changed by Jacob Isaac's children.)
The three siblings arrived in the U.S. in Sept. 1912. They went to Harry and Ida's apartment at 391 E.162 Street, Bronx, NY. They worked for Harry, who had a paint store and hired out painters. These male siblings were hired as painters. From what I have been told,there was some type of disagreement between Harry and the siblings and they left NY and went to New Haven, CT. From that point on there was no communication between Harry and Ida and the siblings, nor from the other 5 siblings who arrived in the U.S. in 1923.
Because of the non-communication with that part of the family, the only information I have came from what I found online from census records. I know that Harry and Ida had 4 daughters: Rose born 1904 in Moscow, Fanny born 1908 in NY,NY, Lillian born in 1909 born in NY,NY and Dora born 1911 in NY,NY."
After posting the above information on the Jewish Genealogy Portal on Facebook, I received a Facebook response from a Richard M. who was quite helpful. He gave me the names of the husbands of two of the daughters.
Frances (Fanny) Gorelick married Abraham Kutner and Lillian Gorelick married Mack Hersch.
I was able to locate additional information on Abraham and Frances Kutner. Abraham was previously married and had a daughter born 1934-1935. The couple had one son, born in 1938.
I am still looking for any information on the two remaining daughters of Harry and Ida: Rose and Dora Gorelick, ie. marriage,children, death records.
I am also looking for the names of the children of Abraham and Frances Kutner and any of their descendants.
as well as any children of Lillian and Mack Hersch and their descendants.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
