Bruchsteiner, Paris, 1900s #france

Lee Jaffe

A cousin has asked for my help looking for information about a couple connected to the other side of his family. He supplied a "Bon Souvenir" photo inscribed on the back "Arthur Rachel Bruchsteiner, 28 juilliet 1907" I managed to find the couples' 1905 French marriage record and Rachel Brahinsky's 1882 French birth record, both through Ancestry. According to the marriage record, Arthur was born in Budapest in 1878. But nothing else. He's interested in knowing what happened to them after 1907. I've worked my way though all the sources I could think of and a few – i.e., Holocaust databases – I'm less familiar with. Any suggestions?

I wonder if Andre could find any information on my cousin, Abraham Pelete (also spelled Pailet) and Adele Kalowski (also transcribed as Kalovvski or Kalorvski) for whom I found a marriage bann dated 1/2/1876 and a second marriage bann dated 1/2/1881, both in Paris (4ieme).
I would greatly appreciate any help or additional information prior to their emigration to the U.S.A. in February 1883.
Thank you.

A tree on MyHeritage for the Brahinsky family says Rachel died Apr 9 1952 in Toulouse.  No source is given but this provides a path to pursue.  On Geneanet, there is at least one tree viewable with the free membership, and one tree owner  has the last name Brahinsky and may have more information.
