Are you as frustrated as me with misspelled and badly garbled names that some ancestors remain hidden for a long time? I've tried a number of times mostly unsuccessful to find some of my missing ancestors. There are times though when I've been successful in finding them despite names I would never have looked for. Some tips I've used for overcoming these names are written down in a blog at http://www.hiddengenealogynuggets.com/genealogyblog/2012/01/geneaology-genology-geanology/. Post your best tip here or at the blog for finding a name which has been badly misspelled or garbled. I would love to hear abiout them as I'm sure others would as well.
I am looking for relatives of my great-great-grandfather FRANCISZEK MOSIEJ (from Milewskie, Poland), father of Boleslaw Mosiej, who moved to the USA in the beginning of 1900. His last known location is Archbald - Pennsylvania (1927).
Need help finding a relative. He lives/lived in the US. All I know is that he used to work for Grolier in the 1970s as a narrator. He was one of the people who narrated something called "Programmed English" published in 1978. Please do not search the Internet. I did that already. You must have actual knowledge or have access to info not available to just anybody. We do not share the same last name.
I`m looking for relatives from my oldgrandma`s family. I know she had one sister, her birthname is Bjes Margit Persson Lustig, born 6 april 1883, she get married and change her name to Margaret Selberg, and was in the 60 `s living in Seattle, her brothers name was Bjes Hans Persson Lustig, born 20 september 1877, the other brothers name was Bjes Eric Persson Lustig, born 10 april 1840, the last we know is that he moved somewhere to Canada.
They had an other brother who lived like an trapper close to the border USA/Canada, his name was Bjes Anders Persson Lustig, born 8 oct 1870 he comes to USA in 1907. His sister and brothers had came some years before. But he moved back to Sweden when my oldgrandmother be an widow.
They emigrate to USA in the late 1900.
They all is born in Sweden, in an little village they call Orsa, they was living in an place we call for Vångsgärde. If any one in USA know this people please contact me her.
I am seeking more information on my great grandfather Morris KUSHER (b. 1908 - d. 14 October 1952) - especially Morris’ parents of whom I know almost nothing. Morris was born and raised somewhere in Russia along with is parents and his two sisters, Hinda aka “Annie” and Lena, but I don't know in what town/city (ref. family tree generated by Mordecai “Morty” Genn). Morris Kusher worked as an inspector of meat in order to determine if the meat was prepared properly so it can be labeled as “kosher.”
Morris married my great grandmother Shirley CHAROSH (b. 15 April 1905 – d. 11 February 1995), who was also born and raised in Russia, but I do not specifically which town/city. She was a housewife and never worked outside of the house. After Morris died, Shirley remarried under the last name SNYDER. However, I also do not know anything about her parents other than that they were from Russia. I can provide additional information about Shirley if that would help.
Both Morris (14 years old) and Shirley (17 years old) emigrated from Russia to the United States in 1921. Morris was 19 when he married and Shirely was 22 and all three of their kids were born and raised in Brooklyn, New York (ref. 1930 Census for East New York). The Kusher children from the marriage of Morris and Shirley include: Ruth (b. 1925 – d. 12 March 1939), Etta “Yetta” (b. 12 February 1929 – present), and my grandfather Leo (b. 20 June 1931 – present).
Morris, Shirley, and Ruth are all buried in New Montefiore Cemetery, West Babylon, New York.
I also have more information on all three children if that would help.
Although, any information you have on Morris' and Shirley’s birth, parents, or ancestry I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you so much in advance,
