Hilda Macagon Gechtin Gertin
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 12, 1913, Ukraine
Death: May 10, 1979
Montreal
Quebec, Canada

Hilda Macagon was the daughter of Harry Macagon and Freda Blackman. She was born in Borchade, Podol'sk, Russia (possibly Berdichev, Ukraine). Her date birth in a 1925 school record was given as Mar 12, 1913 and it was given as Mar 10, 1913 in her 1935 naturalization records.

Hilda was later known as Hilda Gechtin. I don't know if Hyman Gechtin (later Gertin) adopted Hilda and her sister Rose when he married their mother, but they went by the surname of Gechtin until it was changed to Gertin in the 1940's and 1950's.

Hilda married Harry Gertin, who was her step-fathers brother, Jan 22, 1934 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. So technically her name was Hilda Macagon Gechtin Gertin Gertin.
