Hi Matthew,

I am your California cousin, Ziona, (your mom's first cousin) and I can provide you with a bit of missing information about the Byer- Mizrachi branch of the family.

Sara Jane Byer was born in Altoona/Latrobe PA on April 25, 1909.

Joseph Mizrachi was born in Kiev, Russia on October 9, 1909. He had one sister, Sarah, and three brothers; Sholom, Meyer and Ben. They moved from Russia to Philadelphia. My father stayed in The States, but his family lived in Israel in the late 1920s. They bought a citrus orchard, and were shipping fruit to England and Germany. The house that Wolf Mizrachi, my father's dad, built with his sons, my father included, had American plumbing. It's built of Jerusalem stone, and it's still standing!

Sara Jane Byer and Joseph Mizrachi were married in Philadelphia, PA. about 1931. Sara Jane passed away on October 7, 1995, at the age of 86. Joseph passed away on May15, 1990 at the age of 80.

I was born Ziona Mizrachi in Pittsburgh, PA on June 8,1938.

Ruel Mizrachi was born in New York in 1940.

Sara Jane (Byer) Mizrachi was a registered nurse. She attended nursing school in Philadelphia. She was the only one of her brothers and sisters who had a formal education beyond high school. Joe was a jeweler and watch repairer. We lived in the Bronx, New York from about 1939 until October 1948. Then we moved to Los Angeles.

I am a retired school teacher. I taught special education for 36 years. I was married and divorced in my twenties. My last name is now Rotter. I did not have any children.

Ruel Mizrachi was a probation officer and director of a youth detention camp for Los Angeles County. Carmen is his second wife, and they have no children together.
He was first married to an Israeli girl, Naomi. He has a daughter, Jodi Ordonez, who is married and has one 7 year old daughter, and a son, Loren, who has a four year old daughter named Ariel. Jody is a teacher. She served in the Army for 4 years. Loren is a video editor.

I'm glad I discovered your ancestry search page, Matthew. I hope I have helped your efforts a bit. I know there's a family site with an access code, but I don't have the code.

Love,

Your cousin Zi (Cuzi)

Hello,
I am also researching my father's geneology. His dad, Morris Cohen, born in Romania, Russia before 1900. He died in New York in 1952. I think he was in his 80's. He was married to a Sheva Cohen. He migrated to the US around 1917. His wife Sheva died in Russia from child birthing. Morris Cohen sent for his 5 children. One of whom was my dad, Isadore Cohen, brother Samuel Cohen, sisters Ruth, Anna & Lena. They arrived in the US in March, 1920. I do have a copy of his passport complete w/photo and immigration papers.
Morris Cohen's father was a rabbi, I believe in Bocovina, Russia. If you would like additional info, please feel free to contact me.
Sincerely, Dave
