Hello Raya. My name is Helen Hay. I am the daughter of James Cope who was befriended by your father and mother in 1942. He has very happy memories of their kindness and wishes to write to you if you will please give me your postal address.

I wish you success in your search for your cousins.

Dear Helen,

What a surprize - I was a young girl when your father, a very handsome British soldier who my mother met at the Soldiers Club in Tel-Aviv, first visited us. Your father sent us kids beautiful childrens books for years after he left Israel. I remember that he was tall and had a moustache.

My father passed away at the age of 53 following a heart attack. My mother lived to the ripe old age of 96 and passed away in 2005. I have lived in New York and California until 1983 and thereafter, moved to Canada and since 1991 I have resided in Switzerland.

Am looking forward to hearing from you.

My home address is: Raya Meron, 30 Avenue Wendt, 1203 Geneva, Switzerland, Tel: +41-22-345-2780, e-mail: rmeron@bluewin.ch.

Kind regards,

Raya

I don't know whom I am replying to but if it is Cle440, then I did post my relative search on the cleveland forum and was contacted by the daughter of my late parents friends from 1942. It is an amazing story and I thank the forum for finding Helen and her father James Cope.

I still have not found my relatives, the extended family of my uncles Arnold Munzner in Cleveland and Ralph Munzner in the State of New York, both of whom would be over 100 years old. I hope someone of my uncles' exnded family will contact me.

Hi again,

Could you find my friend, Henry Steiner, who lived at 333 West 57 Street (Columbus Circle) in N.Y. and part-time in Las Vegas. If he is still alive, he would be in his 80's and probably lives permanently in Las Vegas.

Thanks.

You are great - what is the ship's log? You found my uncles' extended family and how accurate, with all details - thanks a million? Do you have any idea how I can find their e-mail address, or even e-mail address of just one of them through whom I can contact all the others.

I Posted another search for a friend named Henry Steiner who probably resides in Las Vegas. He used to live at 333 West 57 street (Columbus Circle) in N.Y.

This is a great forum and I thank you.

Raya

Ship's log - The ships bringing immigrants to America kept lists of the passengers on each trip, with details such as name, age, occupation, country of birth, etc. Those old logs are now in a database which is a useful tool for genealogical research. I could not find your Uncle in Ohio, but when I started at the beginning... the ship's log showing his arrival in America... I was able to get his family members' names and trace them to Minnesota.

I write out the search process so the OP can see if I've found the right people. Had I just said, "Here's your second cousin in Minnesota" when you were looking for Ohio people, you'd have no reason to believe there was a connection.

I do not know how to find their email addresses. Please be aware that older relatives may not have computers or email accounts. I suggest you write a letter and mail it the old-fashioned way. You can include your own email address and ask them to contact you in that manner, if possible.

For new search queries, please start a new thread and put that person's name in the subject line. Then all of the forum volunteers will see it and help with the search.
