I have been unable to access the Archives Canada website for
several days. Is it down?
Do you have the correct URL? For English it should be
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/index-e.html

Searching SUMMER/SIMMER Cocoanut Grove Fire 1942 #general

Peter Levene <peter@...>
 

I am trying to trace any relations of Sallie or Rose SUMMER, of 41 Bellvista
Road, Brighton. Rose and Sallie both died in the Cocoanut Grove fire in
1942. I believe their father, Henry, had a shop in Boston called the Wearing
Apparel Shop. He was born in Kutno, Poland, and possibly married in England
before emigrating to USA early 1900s. He had five children: Rosy, Sadie,
Mamie, Lily, Sydney.

Elli shalom,
I deceided to look up all the people name Levi Katz in the Israeli
telephone book,phoned all two of them and they are not the people for whom
you are searching.
Possibly someone else has already found the person in question.
All the very best, Brenda Habshush,

My father's name was Abraham CLARE and he passed away in 1950. When looking
through the Social Security Death Index, I did not find his name but found two
other Abraham Clares. Does anyone have a connection to or knowledge of these
other men?

Re: KLEIN ...a Jewish name? #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Caroline Faunce-Brown asked:

can anyone confirm if the surname "Klein" is Jewish?

Dear Caroline,

Klein is one of the commonest Jewish surnames there is! I note that
you live in England (my homeland) and I bet you can find several
Jewish Kleins in your local telephone book -- if you live in a town
of any size, that is.

Even so, one has to bear in mind that almost all German-Jewish
surnames that are pure German words were also originally German
gentile surnames -- for instance, Rosenberg was the surname of one
of the most notorious Nazis in WW2.

Another example: My husband is one of a very small number of Viennese
Jewish Wegners. But the overwhelming majority of Wegners are not
Austrian Jews but German gentiles.
