Hi Stanley

Thanks for your Email - just a couple of updates for you.  Angela's maiden name was Bonsall  and she was born on 14 April 1968. Matthew is my stepson and his full name is Matthew Robert Southall and he was born on 23rd July 1991.  Interesting website I am sure I will spend some hours looking through it in more detail.

Does anyone know the "roots" of the name Gilinsky?  I would be interested in knowing the origins of the name.

Hi! My Gilinsky-family was friends with the Russian tsar and officers in his army, before the communists got there. My great grandfather was killed by them, but his wife and son (my grandfather), escaped and moved to Norway (where we still live today). The Gilinsky-family in Russia was very rich back then, and had their own castle in St.petersburg.

Hi, my name is Rebecca Galin, I realize I'm a little late responding but I was doing a high school research project on my geneology and stumbled upon this guestbook site. My great-grandfather was Isadore Galin, my grandfather is Julius Galin (brother of Arthur, Alfred, and Ronald Galin) and my father is Jeff Galin. Our last name was shortened during W.W.II from Galinsky. My great-grandfather came to New York when he was young and served in the army in the U.S. He moved to Hartford,Connecticut (soon after he immigrated from Lithuania)and that is where my family lives now. I'm just wondering how all we Galins are related. Thanks!

Does anyone know the linkage regarding the Cogswell family (1920 Census) of Portland, Oregon to the Gilinsky's.  What Gilinsky did Marie Cogswell marry?  What happened to them?

Hi, My mother was born in Lithuania about 1910. Her name was Faga/Fanny Gilinsky. Her brother's name was Max and her sister was Edie. They settled in Johannesburg, South Africa. My mother married Israel Gamaroff and moved to Cape Town, where I and my siblings were born. I and some of my siblings spent out early childhood in the Cape Jewish orphanage, Cape Town.

Anybody know how I can contact Joe or Sonia Marcus or their relatives from Cape Town, because they have a Gilinsky connection and might have some info.

My grandfather was from lithuania, last name galinsky. anyone have any history from 1912 or so?

signed by David diamond on 9/1/04
Hi Stanley, it's kinda slow of me but I've just realised that your mother was my mother's 'Auntie Annie'. That being the case, I may have a writing desk that belonged to you. Annie gave it to me when I was studying for some exams (might even have been the 'Eleven-plus'!)and I use it to this day. She told us at the time that it had been used for studying very successfully in the past and that hopefully some of that success would rub off on me! Regards, Dave Diamond. ?

Hi, Stanley, my wife, Jacqui came across your website the other night. I am the son of Hilda Gilinsky & grandson of David. My mother died in 1977, not 1978 & my son was indeed born in 1987. There are a couple of other things that I think I canmake accurate for you with a small amount of research ~ I'll have a look and send you another email. In the meantime, I'd be glad to hear from you, regards, Dave Diamond'

Hi, I've been working on my family tree for quite a while and have noticed some simularities to the info you have. My Grandfather was Louis Galinsky, from Lithuania, was in the Russian army, went to London, England, then to New York, and on to Toronto, Canada.
He lived to age 97 and had 5 sons and three daughters. My Father was Alex Galinsky and he changed his name to Galin. I do have a somewhat updated family tree in Family Tree Maker which I would be glad to send if it's of interest.

Well, there are hundreds of us, all related. The question is do we all have the same pleasant manners, and highly toned people skills. As Mrs. Bucket would say, what a group of most interesting people.
