In Memory of
Rebecca Haimowitz nee Strulowitz
Abt. 1880, Romania – 4 Jan. 1947, New York
May her memory be a blessing
As 2019 was approaching, I spent some time thinking about the direction I wanted to go with my family research. After some thought, one of the things I would like to do is highlight as many family members as I can with a memorial mention on the anniversary of their passing.
The first person to highlight this year was my great grandmother Rebecca Strulowitz. (sometimes spelled Srulowitz without the t) I won’t call it a coincidence, no, it was one of those funny genealogical connections that she should be my first memorial mention after I had decided that I would put more emphasis on trying to locate her story this year and blog the process as well. I have shared about her numerous times before. At present, I know very little about her Strulowitz family. From her death record, I have the names of her parents, Samuel Strulowitz and Minnie Cohen. Basically, that is all I have. I have yet to find her immigration record – traveling with her husband Samuel Haimowitz and 2 son’s Hyman and Pincus. I know nothing of her siblings, aunts or her uncles. One cousin shared that she believes she had family that settled in Chicago, Ill., but I have yet to connect any family in Chicago to her.
With very little information, this past year I had set myself the task of checking DNA matches with this last name and all variations of the spelling, collecting their information and fleshing out the family histories for these matches, writing away for death and marriage cert., writing to researchers, I am trying to connect the dots anyway I possibly can. Perhaps 2019 will be the year of connection with the Strulowitz family.
