RE: Dashewsky
Do you have any idea how Clara (Chaje) and Henia are related? Guess we are cousins. I like your book about the Apostles Creed. It feels good.

Paul Becker
Hello. I have a lot of family in De Soto Parish and have been busy documenting all of the markers in Bethel Cemetery, near Logansport. I came across the entry you created for Paul Becker, and am utterly fascinated. Could you contact me to share more? My email address is available on my profile.

RE: Isaac Kaminsky
Okay, thanks!

Could I ask where you got the info though that Isaac's parents were Moshe and Bessie?

Isaac Kaminsky
Hi Ray,
I'm contacting you about Isaac Kaminsky (, whose memorial you commented on saying his parents are Moses and Bessie.

I found this link on a public ancestry tree who had uploaded the same picture that is in my grandmother's apartment of her great-grandfather as the profile picture of Isaac Kaminsky, so I am convinced that we are talking about the same person.

Are you related to him too? I hit a wall researching this part of the family until now and would love to hear from another descendant of Isaac.
