Hit brick wall with a few ancestors
« on: Monday 06 December 21 12:32 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone my name is Josh and I have been researching my ancestry for a couple of years now and I have hit the same brick walls. One main brick wall in particular is my 2x great grandmother Celia Dinerstein Cohen. I know she married Harry Cohen and supposedly she was from Lithuania but don't know much about her parents. Can anybody assist me. Thank you so much.
