Thanks for sharing your stories! I had a similar reason to write an 85 page book , printed and designing a hardcover of our families’ ancestry going back - in some cases to my 5th great grandparents and my grandchildrens 7th great grandparents. It was a journey that also introduced me to over 125 second cousins all over the world and on every continent but Antarctica. And this coming Fall, we will visit our newly found 2nd cousins in Israel. It will be a Summit if the Milkis family of Ladyzhyn now in Ukraine. It’s good to know that I’m not the only one with all types of stories!

Very interesting. Thank you for sharing.

My husband is Frank Hessel and his grandmother was Yetta Hessel, but most likely a different Yetta than you are writing about.

This is fascinating. Thank you so much for sharing this.

Fascinating history. I love the fact that Yatko lived in the same house his entire adult life. Explains a lot about the Pearlman nesting instinct. Thanks for writing this.


Thanks so much for sharing this, Eli. This is so meaningful. So interesting.
