Looking for

Regarding the photos in the banner on this site. Who is the dark haired woman who is wearing a necklace. FOUND to be Hanna Smith Rabinowitz.  And who is the white bearded man in the photo next to her? FOUND to be AJ Wilk.

Shonfeld (and variations)

Perboner (Perbohner, Proboner, Porboner, and many variations)

-A NY census lists a Porboner couple as mother and father. I have found no birth records. The census list looks like the couple may live in a boarding house or some other non-family living situation, and the couple thought of themselves as ‘parents’. And a H.S. age girl with the given name Ada shows up in a Chicago area yearbook….[FOUND this person is really Leah]

Photographs of people places or things. What artifacts or ephemera do you have of our ancestors? I’d like to expand a list I’ve created of such things. It’s just about remembering our ancestors and paying attention to the things they valued, left behind or carried throughout their years.

Also seeking copies of vital records, personal or family stories and food recipes.
