      Do you mean this Meyer, son of Aaron?? If so, you can see I am missi ng a lot from this branch of our family. Aaron was my grandmother Eva Go niondski Liebowitz's first cousin.

      That's the guy.

      I was just in Montreal last week with my mother Susan (Meyer's last surviv ing child), and visited his gravesite.

      I have a great deal of information on this branch, from Aaron on down.
      Send me a summary of how you are related, and how far back you go from Aar on.

      I will try to extract the Pearson data from my files and send them to yo u. They are a bit disorganized right now, because we just had a family re union on my father's side, and I have 2 databases that I am trying to merg e.

      I will correspond more over the weekend. Great to contact you!!!

      your cousin, Maury.

      Stanley,

      I didn't realize that it was you when I dashed off my note last nigh t. We have tried to connect our lines in several ways over the past doz en years or so, primarily through my Diamond/Dunsky line. Now it appea rs that my GGF's brother (Joe Pearson) was married to your GGM's sister (F aigie). So we are at least 2nd cousins by marriage.

      I will try to extract my Pearson data to send to you. I have "all" the da ta on Meyer's descendents, most on Rebecca, some on Gus and Malka, and a l ittle on Simon.

      A few questions:

      Have you firmly established the link between Joe and Aaron Pearson? My li nkage is solely based on the family lore that Malka and Archie were fir st cousins.

      Where did you get the "old country" name of Peretze? I also have have hea rd family lore to that effect, but nothing to confirm it.

      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Maury

      I was looking through the Polish Indices this week, and found several fami ly references. Clearly, the name of our branch in Bialystok was PERE C. My grandfather Mejer's record is exact. Correct father, Aron, mothe r, Chana, and even grandfather Nissel! It finally gives a definitive bir th date for him of 1882. There is also a record for his brother Gdali a, as well as probable entries for Aron's son Jack, and a previously unkno wn child Neche (b. 1892, d. 1893).

      Have you found out any more about the mysterious Malka?

      Maury.


      Meyer's alleged birthdate in 1880 makes no sense. It appears that his a ge is off by about 10 years, since he was known to be the youngest of t he siblings, and Simon was born in 1887. Most likely, he lied by "exactl y" 10 years.[lackman v0.FTW]
