I am searching for information on the descendants of Sara Glass TARLOWSKY
who was originally >from Oniskis, Lithuania, and came to the U.S. She had
two children Leo and Rose Tarlowsky.

Sara and her husband (whose first name no one remembers now) lived in 1964
at... Sumner Street, Revere, MA. They had a shop called "Tarlowsky's"
which was located at ... Shirley Ave, Revere, MA.

Their daughter, Rose Tarlowsky, married Charles NEWMAN and had two
daughters named Dorothy and Heidi Newman. In 1962 they lived at ...Stuart
Road, Newton Centre, MA. Since that time, Charles Newman passed away and
his wife Rose remarried and moved to Taft Street in Hollywood, FL. It is
not known whether she is still alive or not or what her present married
name would be. Her two daughters have probably married, but their married
names are not known. They would be in their fifties.

Please contact me directly if you can help me with this puzzle.

Names: Chanedvarika or Chana D'volka #general

Toby Brief
 

Two family members have referred to an ancestor as either "Chanedvarika"
or "Chana D'volka". This woman would have been born around 1890 in the
Volyn region. I have checked the JG archives, but found no reference to
either name.

Would this name be a diminutive or a nickname for Chana? (There were many
Chana's and Henia's in the family at that time)
Thanks
