Surname: Foos #ukraine

Max Brown of St. Louis, MO
wanted to know about the surname
Foos.....

Foos might be a variant of the surname "Fuchs." My grandfather's
official surname in the US was Fox. In many documents for him and his
relatives there were surnames such as Fuchs, Fuks, Fiz and Fix.
Depending on the dialect it is possible that Fuchs, the German and
Yiddish word for "Fox" was pronounced 'Foos.'

JGSOC and South Orange County JGS Newsletter #general

Michelle Sandler
 

I am looking for a complete run of Avi Avot the newsletter of the Jewish
Genealogy Society of Orange County. This ran >from 1983 - 1993. My copies
were given to a IAJGS micro filming project years ago. I never got them back.

I am also looking for the full run of the newsletter of the South Orange
County Jewish Genealogy Society. I think it was called Shorashim. I do not
know the years. I want to add them to my new OCJGS library that I am creating.

I would also like Avotaynu >from the beginning until 1995-96. I have gotten
16 years of donations 1996 - 2011. I have extra copies of the later years
to give away. Come get them or pay for postage.

In 1994 the JGS OC merged with the SOCJGS. Their newsletter merged into the

Looking for adopted girl born 1964-1965 in Phoenix #general

Janette <janettes@...>
 

I am helping a friend find his daughter who was born in December 1964 or
January 1965 at Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. The
biological mother's name, Joyce Kotler, was on the birth certificate.
The father's name, Jack Decker was not. Joyce and Jack lived in Chicago
and were 17 years old and in high school when their daughter was born.
ALthough they got married when they turned 18, about six months after
the baby was born, their parents did not permit them to get married or
keep the baby while they were in high school.

If this information sounds like you or someone you know, please email
me. Jack is very ill and wants to connect with his daughter. Joyce
died many years ago. They attorney who handled the adoption is also
deceased.
