One of the first mysteries I encountered when first starting my research into my family history has still not been solved. Maybe you can help by looking at the facts and sharing your thoughts, interpreting the incomplete documentation, or seeing if you find something I’ve missed.
After several years, I’ve finally been able to put the pieces together and find my great grandmother.
The Neckameyer name was originally Nachamin, as I’ve discovered by reconsidering what I thought was an engraving mistake and with the help of new FamilySearch indices.
Indexes to New York City births, marriages, and deaths are now available on Ancestry.com, as are the 1855 and 1875 New York state census records.
Martin Landes and his family appears in the Canadian Census of 1921, but the listing doesn’t solve a mystery.
I couldn’t find Joseph (Ruben) Lustig while browsing a microfilm of synagogue records from Czecze (Cece), Hungary, but I did later find a potential cousin.
The birth record I attributed to a mystery “Track” Landes is probably attributable to Irwin Landes. Bad indexing led to a bad assumption.
Just days ago I had little information about my great grandmother. Now, I know about her entire family in Lithuania.
