MyMispoche Our Family History

About The Site

This site includes years of research relating to the Pisetsky, Cohen, Alexander, Berkovitz, Korastashefsky, Plesset, and Shalek families (just to name a few). Thanks to many relatives, near and far, for contributing research, insights, and stories. Please search our database for names of you ancestors.

We make every attempt to adhere to the Protocols and Standards described here. This study of our ancestors is continuing with the help of family, friends and, of course, the internet. There is a menu of choices including a search tool, a complete list of surnames, histories, interviews, stories and copies of documents. There are photos of headstones and maps of cemeteries where available. The entire web-page is linked to Google Maps so that places of birth, death etc. are shown on maps linked to the individual. Interesting reports are in the works. Photos of our ancestors are included with links to the individuals.

This is an on-going project and each time that you return, more information will be available. Any information or corrections are welcome and any photos or documents that you would like to share can be attached to the ancestor.
