Hi all! I’m new to messaging, but been researching, on and off, for about 10 years. My current brick wall involves my maternal great grandmother’s family, Mendelso(h)n. Like everybody else, I’m trying to see how far back I can go. Right now, I have confirmed my g-grandmother, Nellie. According to a census, she was born in Kovno, Russia; whereas her brother, Albert, shows being born in Kiev, Ukraine. (Births would have been 1864-1867). Not confirmed are parents Harris and Betsy Mendelson, who lived in Prestwich, England..and died there. The headstone of Harris says “Mr. Tzvi, son of Mr. Mendel Gershon”. Betsy’s headstone says “Mrs. Peshe, daughter of Mr. Tzvi”.
I have received quite a bit of help from the FB groups I joined, just thought I would try here to see if I can get more information. If not, I will most likely be done with this part of my family.
