Thanks to the incredible work accomplished by Ann Rabinowitz and others
associated with the Kupishok SIG, within the past week or so my "family
tree" has moved "back" about 125 years as we have added confirmed
identities of my GGGGF, GGGF, GGU, and GGA (and some of their families
and descendants). We have already linked up, via Internet, with a few
formerly unknown cousins in Israel and South Africa. To put it mildly,
it has been an exciting few days.
If you have BIRGER antecedents >from Kupishok Lithuania, please let me
know and we will see how we may all interrelate (excuse the pun).
