Subject: RE: Kornhauser family
Nice to hear from you.
Many of the names on my list are from 1037 Jewish marriage records I have
looked at here in Syracuse hoping to find something about my grandfather's
family. I have yet to find anyone outside of our immediate family circle who
might be related to us. He had one uncle and one cousin. Period. I posted
the list in case it might be useful to anyone else.
Anyway, the record I have is for the marriage of one Leo Schlinger
Kornhauser to one Rose Bloom. I don't have the details or the parents'
names, but I could look them up if you are interested. That is whenever I
get to the county clerk's office. Rochester is only about eighty miles from
here, and I see that you have some connection at a point in time to
Rochester. You never know.
