Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Elana Kahn, and I live in Boston, MA. I'm married to a wonderful man and have four adorable kids (7-year-old boy/girl twins, a 5-year-old girl, and a 2-year-old girl). I'm currently in grad school to become a Certified Nurse Midwife.

My mom was always the genealogist in the family, so she's the one I always turn to for questions, but now I'm the keeper of the electronic records (on Geni and Ancestry). Unfortunately I do not live near where my relatives are buried, so I either have to travel or have volunteers take photos. Most of my family is buried either in Rochester, NY or in and around New York City. I've been using my research skills to try and find where many of my family members are buried and so far have been somewhat successful. I still have about 50 people to locate, though.

Here are the last names that particularly interest me and the most likely place for their burial:

New York City area:
Bellin
Blumenthal
Doloboff
Friedman
Hyman
Levy
Paltrow/Paltrowitz
Rockoff


Rochester, NY:
Friedman
Melin
Raskind

RE: Photo request
Do you know Esther's son Joe Kolodney? He has lots of knowledge about the family - all sides. I just spoke to him last night.

Photo request
You requested a photo from Beth Alom cemetery in New Britain, CT for my great grandfather's grave. His name was Joseph Kolodney (married to Dora Frishman Kolodney). Are you related to them?

Rabuchin in Bayside
Dear Ms. Kahn,
I think I may have located Jenny Rabuchin in Bayside but I want to check before I add the photo. The name on the stone is Stera Rabuchin and the date of death is April 1 1946 a the age of 86.
