Looking for Feitelbergs #southafrica

Dan Karlan
 

I know that early in the 20th century, several Feitelbergs arrived in South
Africa and settled. I would like to trace those families, both to the
present and back to their origin in Latvia. Any help anybody on this list
can provide would be greatly appreciated, including making contact with
their descendants.

Re: Massachusetts help needed #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Yesterday I asked for some help in the Boston area and thanks to everyone who
replied ... I will be it touch privately. But a few people wrote saying I
should have included the names.

The father was Samuel MORRISON born circa 1875 in Russia and immigrated in
1906. I have his immigration, naturalization, second marriage and census
1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940.

The mother was Fannie MORRISON.

The children:

Ethel born 1911 - died 1999
Rose (Rosa) born 1914 died 2013 married to Charles SMOLENSKY
George Bernard "Chick" born 1919 and died 2001 in Baltimore but apparently
buried with his sisters all on Pearl Street

The other two family names which we are trying to connect is Baker -- they
show up as "cousins" on the 1910 census and all in the same house but I do
not know the actual connection and what happened to them

The other one is ROSEN which should be connected to MORRISON as well.

Sorry for the omission ..... but since I am working on this best to speak
with me before you start digging in as I have gone through most of the
online resources and also have various bits being worked.... hate for someone
to jump in to duplicate something I have already done.

Depending on what happens/turns up the only help I may need is at one or two
cemeteries. It appears Pearl Street and Crawford Street are the targets but
I am speaking with both offices to see if they can help first.

Thank you.

Massachusetts help needed #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Hoping someone in the Boston area might be able to trade some research help
with me in New York.

I am working on a family in the Brockton area and I can trade them via the
census 1910 - 1940 but get stuck there. I cannot find the parents' deaths
after 1940 census and nothing till the children's deaths around 1999 and
later.

The children are in the cemetery on Pearl Street and I spoke to the manager
who is looking to see if they can find the records.

I need to find the parents dates of death or graves and also figure out if
there are any living descendants.

Anyone local who might be able to help out?

Thank you

Allan Jordan
