Hi there - unfortunately you didn't sign the email.
Many thanks for the prompt reply.
I have BC's for Louis Myer; Leah & Isaac, who all have the same mother -
Awaiting BC for Abraham.

Many thanks for the various lines of enquiry to follow - a lot of work to do.
I have found the possible burial details for Sarah Galinsky, nee Wolfson,

Cemetery in Leeds.

Just a thought
All children born in in Leeds England.?

***PERHAPS: children of a Second Marriage?
Have you obtained birth information for the other children
Abraham 1902, Minnie 1903,Dorah 1906, Louis Meyer 1908 ?
Children of Chaskel [ Harris ?] and Amalie GALINSKY
**Amalie does not translate to Sarah
Have you searched for a possible death for Amalie?
Do you know when? where Chaskel /Harris GALINSKY - and Sarah
GALINSKY - nee WOLFSON - passed away? Where they are buried?
Perhaps Obituaries were published - which may lead to persons who may
be able to assist.
Marriages of Children - show name/s or parents??
