I was born at Kings Country Hosp in Brooklyn NY on Oct. 24th 1958. I only have my grandmas name because my mom was a minor at the time of my birth. My mom was 17 when she had me. My grandmas name is Katherine Camerlengo. I am 50 years old now which would make my mom about 68 years old. I dont know if Katherine is still alive or not. Pleace e mail if you might be able to help. My is Jeanette.

Just a thought for you. Due to the fact that I couldn't find anything on a Katherine Camerlengo (searched all of USA). I just used the last name and searched Brooklyn, NY. I found this person:

Carmela M Camerlengo Age:85 (8/29/1924)
(The age could be right, if she was about 34 in 1958, she would have been 17/18 when she had your birth mother; who was 17 in 1958)
12 Gadsen Pl
Staten Island, NY 10314-4806
(718) 761-7700

She is connected to:
CAMERLENGO, ANNE M (Age 87) ** Another possibility!
CAMERLENGO, JEANINE M (Age 73)
CAMERLENGO, PETER A (Age 45)
MASTRAPASQUA, CATHERINE CAMERLENGO (Age 43) ** BTW she is the only Catherine Camerlengo in NY
CAMERLENGO, JEANNE

They are formally of Brooklyn, NY


Next thought... CAMERLENGO born 1941

I found only 3 people named Pollowiz from Brooklyn. Married couple Stanley and Audrey, and "V," possibly their child. "V" was listed in the phone book:

V Pollowitz
435 Ocean Pkwy
Brooklyn, NY 11218-5150
(718) 282-6599



I found an old record for Stanley. This is where he lived in 1990.

Stanley Pollowitz
4257 Bedford Ave
Brooklyn, New York 11229-0201

Then I searched that street in that time period for Camerlengo, but did not find them.

Default correction on my info

. I was born in Beth Israel hosp Beth El is the abreviation on my birth cert. Does anyone know any Camerlengos? I D dont believe my birth mom lived in brooklyn at the time of my birth. DOB 10/24/1958. Someone out there must know a young girl who had a baby in 1958. My adopted dads boss knew my birth family and helped with the arrangements of the adoption. His name was Joseph Pollowitz who ran Regina Novelty Co, for years in Manhattan, Ny. Did anyone work there or have any info? I am very grateful for your help.

Looking at some of your older posts, it looks like hcgCali and Travelingal2 could be onto something. Have you looked at this woman's picture, around the same age? Just wondering...

Joseph Pollowitz born 1897, died in Miami, Fl in 1979.

According to 1930 Census, he lived on Lefferts Ave., Brooklyn, NY. with wife Frances (1903-1991), children Sheldon M. (b-1925) and Jack D. (b-1928). They had a live-in servant, Bettie Menten (b-1920 in Germany) 10 yrs old? .

I searched the street for Camerlengo but it was totally a Russian/Polish/Jewish neighborhood in 1930 and Camerlengo is Sicilian. A street search on a more recent database had no results either. A search for Camerlengo in that zipcode produced nothing.

I found no other records for Bettie Menten under any variation of the name.

The sons are now in their 80's, but it's your best shot at this time. (Since they were in their 30's when you were born, I doubt either of them is your father, but you never know).

You'll have to register to access their member-supplied phone numbers:

Jack D Pollowitz
182 Longview Dr
Scarsdale, NY 10583-1819
View phone
Age: 65+
Household: Doris S Pollowitz, Michael R Pollowitz, Robert R Pollowitz, Shaftan L Pollowitz



Sheldon M Pollowitz
106 Cherry Valley Pt
Stroudsburg, PA 18360-9000
View phone
Household: P Melin, Melinda K Pollowitz, Scott M Pollowitz



Good luck, I hope they remember something.
