There is an exciting new JewishGen project, which will make records available from L'vovo and other Jewish Agricultuaral Colonies in Kherson Guberniya, Ukraine. Click here for more information or to donate (through Jewishgen).

Welcome to my personal home page.   Professionally, I am an actuary, although my first career was teaching mathematics.   To learn more about my professional life, please visit my Professional Web Site .  However, you will need to use your back button on your browser to return, as I deliberately did not put a link from my Professional Site to this one.  Mathematics in one form or another is one of the common professions that occur in our family tree.   However, I do not know if it is more common than would be due to chance.   My hobbies include computers, reading romance novels, photography and genealogy.   This web site is devoted primarily to my genealogy hobby.   The primary family names in the tree are ANK(I)ER, BIGOS, KARMELEK (CARMEL or KARMEL in the US) and PERLSTADT on my mother's side, and BIRGARDOVSKY (DAVIS in the US),EDELBERG, HITE (KHAIT) and PERCHIK (MEYER(S) in the US) on my father's side.
For first time visitors, I highly recommend starting with the dedication page.   This page has a surprising bit of computer history in it.
The philosophy page reflects my attitude towards life as well as my approach to genealogy.
The photos page currently has some of the oldest family photos.   The next step in the evolution of this web site, will be to add photos needing identification to this page.   Eventually, I hope to have a database where by clicking on a name, it will bring up a collection of photos of the person.   Currently the only photo of a living person is my own, but expect that to change in the future.
The Help Solve Mysteries page has two types of mysteries, family stories that need corroboration or suggestions, and addresses that appeared in my paternal grandfather's address book, that are or may be family, where I am searching for descendants.   Some of the surnames are too common for general technigues.
Jim is my beloved husband, and a professional biologist. His family history and photos are here as well. To get back from his web site you will need your back button on your browser
Please explore the site and enjoy it.  Write me with any solutions to the mysteries, comments or other suggestions.   See my contact page for more information.
The vast majority of this site is devoted to the family tree itself, which can be found on the Genealogy Pages.
My son Isaac is responsible for the wonderful Spanish version of this site.  Thank you, Isaac!   He translated all of the site except for the genealogy data pages, which were produced in Spanish as well as English by the Ged4Web program.
