My name is Stanley Lapidus. I am looking for relatives of my great grandfather Joseph Lapidoth and his father, Abraham (about who I have no information). Joseph was born in 1843 probably in Galicia and later moved to Riga, Latvia. He married Scheina-Rochel (Rachel) Abramowitsch (born in 1856) and moved to London, England between 1881 and 1891 and then lived in Manchester. Joseph and Rachel had 8 children: Isadore Morris (my grandfather), Sam, Leah, Dina, Fanny, Mary, Ruben and Minnie. Joseph was a tailor. About 1907, the family moved to Montreal, Quebec. Joseph died in 1909, Rachel in 1936. If you have any information that can "connect" your family to Joseph or Abraham, I would love to hear from you.
