Link between Yenush, Parnes, and Nussbaum families? #unitedkingdom

imap
 

I am trying to find the link between Stella (nee Yenush) Parnes, and
my great-grandmother, Fanny (nee Langer) Nussbuam.

Stella was born in 1901 and died in 1979 in London.

My great-grandmother, Fanny (nee Langer) Nussbaum, was born in 1880 in
Russia and died in 1930 in NYC, but lived in London for part of her
life.

My grandmother, Sydney (Sara) (nee Nussbaum), Weinstein, spent much
time with Stella and the Parnes family and called them cousins. The
family resemblances are very strong, but we have not yet found the
familial link.

There is also a possible familial connection between Stella (Yenush)
Parnes and Lillian Nussbaum (1906-1996- died in NYC, not sure of
birth) . I don't know Lillian's maiden name. She was married to my
great-uncle, Samuel Nussbaum.

Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks very much,
Pamela Faith Lerman, USA
