So since it has been a while since I updated this I figured I would do so in one big entry –
For the past year I was focused on my German ancestry through my maternal grandmother’s paternal grandmother Albertine Levy from Duisburg. For about 3 months I spent time going through the book Geschichte der Duisburger Juden trying to pick out everything I could about my ancestors. I spent a number of weekends going through the LDS films for Duisburg and found a number of things and verified a number of other things. I then focused on my ancestors in the town of Randerath and my tree expanded by about 1000 people.
I have also made some headway in my brickwalls.
I acquired a form that verified the name of my great grandmother Bertha’s brother in-law. Along that same line I acquired a picture of my 2nd great grandfather’s grave stone which has his father’s name.
I also managed to find some of the missing Cohn’s in Argentina and I am still working on contacting them.
Lastly there are some Tarnopol related road blocks I am still working through.
