Just going over the tree I've done for my Son in laws
and wondered if I (with help) could find anything more out

I Have jacob/Jack Belinsky married to Fanny Garber they had a son Asher 1929 Manchester
Emigrated to california in 1930
In my notes I have they changed their name to Jack & Fay Bell in 1940 ??

If anyone can find them after 1930
Did they have anymore children ??
Jack died in 1971 and Fanny in 1999 both in California

Thank you

Thanks Andy

That looks like them ??

So it doesn't look as though they had anymore children
Wonder why they changed their name

Re change of name - original names sound Jewish perhaps ??

A lot of Jewish people changed their names around that time, for obvious reasons!

Yes They were Jewish

As far as I can see jacobs siblings didn't change their names

I'll look into that one
