Searching descendants of Louis Korn and Rachel Rae Braun #dna #galicia

HI,

Louis  Korn is a close relative based on DNA comparison. I am searching for his ancestors and descendants to improve my relevant family tree branch. Louis Korn was bron in 1897   and was married in 1922 in New York to Rachel Rae Bram (b.1899). Based on 1940 census they had 3 children Edith (b. 1923), Seymour (b.1925, d.2006) and Norman (b.1931) . There exists 3 person family tree on MyHeritage which is useless. Ancestry claims that Louis is on their  Rettig/Cooper family tree (I am not member).

Louis Korn has also very strong match with Robert  Greenwood  who is my second cousin. My DNA is posted on FTDNA, Geni, GEDMatch and MyHeritage.

Any help is appreciated

Dear Shaul,

Louis Korn and his wife Rae Bram are my paternal uncle and aunt(by marriage). Myself and other close paternal relatives have tested on MyHeritage and when I checked matches for you there was no match with me of any cM. There was a a match with a Robert Greenwood with only a 55.1 cM match and longest segment of 12.1 cM . Do not know how Robert Greenwood has a strong match with Louis Korn; since he died before DNA matching started and he was never tested.  It appears that there is another Louis Korn that you are related to. Also note that a relative of Louis and Rae was tested. Cooper/Rettig tree on Ancestry is related to Louis and Rae; although I have never seen it.
Please note that Korn is not that an unusual surname. Have found people with that surname all over Poland, Ukraine and Germany that I am not related to. The 1940 Census is wrong, Louis Korn is not from Galicia but his wife is.

Hello Lorraine,

I sent you email directly on this issue hoping to resolve  the conflicts. You are right - Korn is "popular" name and there maybe more than one Louis  Korn family. I made one mistake in my post - the DNA match is with Norman Korn who is the son of Louis Korn.
