I'm researching my great grandparents. My great grandmother was Becky Kalish from Riga, Latvia. She met her husband, Joseph Bravin (also from Riga) on the boat to New York probably in the late 1800's or early 1900. Does anyone have any info? Please email me, Thanks.

I am also seeking info on my grandmother, whose name was Bertha Kalish. She was from Hungary, Poland, or perhaps, the Alsace-Loraine region. She was born in Pennsylvania in 1901. Can't find a record of a birth certificate however. Perhaps there is some relation. Maybe you have more reserch than I do. I am coming up zero everywhere.

Thanks

Hi Marcy,

My Kalish info is really limited. I was able to find my grandfather's info (Blocks & Monkofsys from Lithuania), but there is no one left on my grandmother's side w/ any info. My grandmother's (born Rose Bravin, 9-11-17, I think) mother was Becky Kalish from Riga Latvia. Becky met her husband, Joseph Bravin (also from Riga) on the boat to NYC prob around 1900ish and they married & lived in New York City. My line of Kalishes seems to end there...

Good luck on your search. I posted this several months ago and almost never hear from any Kalish folk--I thought it was a more common name, but I haven't been able to find out much myself.

Best wishes,
Allison Block

Dear Allison,
I saw your posting although it is 7 years old, but if you are interested in knowing of your Beavin/Kalish relatives (of which there are some of us left) let me know. Your grandmother Rose Bravin Block was my dearest Aunt Rose, who I named my son Ross after. Anyway, write back if I can be of any help you.
Your cousin,
Renee
