I am trying to make contact with Laurie KACE (Mercy College / Pratt Institute; formerly Gymnasia Herzeliya, Tel Aviv) and her close relative Ruth KACE (Los Angeles?).
My info from two sources is that Laurie's (and the late Martin KACE's) maternal grandfather was my great uncle, Jankel SCHORR. I believe that Martin's middle name was after Jankel.
Locating Laurie and Martin has been a brickwall for over 10 years so I'm as keen as anything to break through.
A month ago I copied my DNA results from ancestry to familytreeDNA and immediately saw Martin KACE as a close hit and 2nd cousin. ("Ahah! No wonder my searches for Martin CASE, Lori CASE (sic) and father Munye CASE had failed -- wrong blinking spellings!").
I googled Martin, as he's clearly got some interest in his ancestry, but very sadly he passed in 2013 (his obituary and names of close family members are on legacy.com). I am very sorry not to have "met" him.
Can you help? My email address is available to you as JG list readers, and besides, anyone googling "Joyaa Antares" will find me quicker than a Usain Bolt 100m dash.
Best regards to all,
