JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Searching: BRAUN - Suwalki - Huntington's Disease #general

Elless <elless@...>

My gm, Elka BRAUN STEIN, was born in Suwalki. We know that she was a carrier
of the gene for Huntington's Disease, which while not a specific "Jewish
genetic disease" none the less affilicts Jews as well as non Jews. I am trying
to trace her family and I mention HD only as a clue to locating them. Years
ago, I was told that some of the BRAUN's lived in upstate New York, but refused
to acknowledge that HD afflicted the family.
Will anyone with information please contact me.
