After 3 yrs. of searching for Breslow, (based on a discovered
indiv.,Cape May County, NJ court house records, 1998),2 wks. ago I
utilized Switchboard.com (online), and was led to a jackpot of newly
found family.
.
Fortunately my Breslow surname is not too common, and I knew we had some
roots in Pa.
So I just inserted the surname, and Pa., and bingo. Sent out a mailing
with a very detailed letter of intoduction. One helpful item was my
knowledge of a nickname, which I put in my letter.My Pa. family responded
to me, then gave me more family in Fla., then >from there, I was let to
Oregon, Mich. and Idaho.
I now have an additional 16 individuals on my tree, with more to come. I'm
having a field day. And these "new" Breslows are just as excited and
interested. What a pleasant change >from my other searches.

The original surname was spelled Breslow, but some changed it to
Breslau.

Searching descendants of Harry BRESLOW / BRESLAU(Latvia, for now).
