Wow! Hearing all about Betty Fink is giving me goosebumps. She was my mother's "courtesy aunt" who nurtured my mother after her father died. My mother would not be who she is now without Betty. Betty was a real gem. My mother also knew Anitra and Spencer and would be thrilled to know their descendents.
We also know Julius and his family story because Isadore and my grandparents were landsmen from Roumania. They were in Ibor City together, each having a store on 7th Avenue. I know all about the stores. I've even been to Ybor City to see the buildings. Julius and my great uncle Lou were best friends in Ybor City and in New York where the families wound up. Julius was a doctor, in fact the family doctor.
I would delighted to put anyone in touch with my mother. She knows most all of what you are all writing about.
I may have photos, certainly of Betty.
If people would like I could set up a website where everyone could contribute everything they know and we could begin to piece this together.
I am not blood related to this story, but it is the story of my growing up and the people in it with the double connection with Julius and Betty
