What a wonderful birthday weekend I’ve had. Chinese food and a movie with Carlo and the girls on Friday…and dinner with my father, Davie, Lena, Abby, Carlo and the girls last night…what could be better?
I wakened this morning on a mission to discover more about the Chaliffs (Bubbie Gertie’s family). So, while Carlo was playing baseball, and the girls were sleeping in, I started researching through Jewish Genealogy, Ancestry.com and Google. All of this is noted in my last blog, from this morning.
I then put the computer away, and took the girls to the mall for an afternoon of back-to-school shopping and dinner at Nonna’s. We didn’t get home until 9:00 this evening, and I decided to check my emails and clear my inbox tonight – tomorrow is going to be a crazy, busy day at work!
What did I find in my inbox? 4 messages from Isaac Chaliff’s brother’s descendants, my cousins, looking for their long-long Canadian connection! I will share more information as it surfaces, but this was too exciting to leave until morning. J
