4/4/2010 My great-grandmother was Chaja Ruchla Krawczyk (aka Paja Ruchla Krawczyk). This might be her death certificate, or it could be a different Chaja Ruchla Krawczyk altogether. Would help to identify if the certificate mentions names of spouse, parents or other relatives. Any help appreciated. View the post with its 1 response

Thank you. Eliana.

15027 Do you recognize?

4/4/2010 I can identify three people in the photograph, but need to identify the woman on the left.

I believe she is the sister of Yetta Baltman Organek, the other adult woman in the photograph. The unknown woman's maiden name would have been Baltman.

The girl in the centre of the photo is my maternal grandmother Pearl Organek (later Ash) and the other is her sister, Mollie Organek (later Lee, and then Taylor).

Do you know the name and any other information about my great-grandmother's sister?

4/4/2010 This letter was written to his cousin before she arrived in Israel for a reunion of war survivors/family. Hanoch Pasternak lived in Haifa and is listed as giving testimony in Yad Vashem in 1956 concerning our family members. I believe he was still alive when i visited israel in 1974, and I met his daughter, but have since lost contact with them.This letter may shed some light on their original paths.
