I'm hoping someone out there can help to solve a family mystery. In 1963. my husband's parents toured NY cemeteries photographing the tombstones of their parents and grand parents (bless them!) But, among these family photos, is one which reads: "Our beloved mother Malka Jacobowitz. Died May 1, 1931, Age 103 years." According to the Hebrew engraving, her father's name was Yitzchak. On the back of the photo my father-in-law has written :"Belchatower landsfrau". Our family came from Belchatow and they were members of the Belchatower Society. Perhaps they knew her only from the landsmanschaften or perhaps she was a relative as one of our family married into the Jacobowitz family (see my later posting). Anyone who knows anything about Malka, please contact me at
