Blog Purpose - Linking Family
Throughout my research I have hit many dead ends. So in an attempt to continue the research I have emailed hundreds of people and posted so many Surname boards with the hope that there would be a link, ALWAYS to no avail!
Feeling frustrated that I have not found ANY links to date; I created this Blog in order to provide ONE location for ALL "cousins" with the following Surnames to post their information, with confidence that someday a Link will be found!
(Please note that ALL Surnames on this Blog are Jewish)
ADELMAN, PRINCE, MEYER, DINOWITZ,
SAMUEL, HOVISS, COHEN, WILANOWICZ
TIENEMANN, STOCKHAUSEN, ELKAN-JUDA,
BAER, BOSSON, SIMON, LUKS
WALLACH, KULIES, BOSSON,
Instructions: Email your family information along with how this information was qualified. (i.e. birth certificate, personal knowledge, Census etc.) to email@example.com
Verification: LAO will create a family group sheet and a Pedigree Chart with your information and will email it back to you to proof.
Linking: Once proofed and returned to LAO, your information will be entered into our database and proofed for Links. If a Link is found - you will be notified immediately.
Information: All Pedigree Charts and Family Group sheets will remain in the system for future reference.

The EDELMAN family that I am researching was from Latvia.. THese are small countries and Jews were shuffled back and forth between countries frequently and had relatives all over the place. I know that some of the family that I am researching was also in Lithuania... and the border between Lithuania and Poland changed during WWI and WWII. In fact, there was no such place as Poland for almost two hundred years before WWI. Part of it was in Austria-Hungary called Galicia for example. Part of that is in Poland now and part including the Capital of Galicia, Lemberg, now Lwow is in the Ukraine which was part of the Soviet Union. There was a big chunk in Russia...before WWI and those people were said to be from Russ-Pole. A large chunk was in Prussia. See if you can find their birth place on documents like SS or passports or Naturalization documents or even Draft Registration records.
