|Marjorie and Alan divide
their time between Florida and Connecticut. They have four daughters,
two son-in-laws and seven grandchildren.
Alan, a graduate of Rutgers University, was president and publisher
of American Baby Magazine from 1956 until the sale of the company
in 1986. Marjorie and Alan worked together in Family Bazaar,
a mail order and catalogue company, reaching the expectant and
new mother markets through advertising and direct mail from
1966 until 1986. Alan grew up in Hillside, New Jersey and Marjorie
in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In 1985, Marjorie and Alan crossed the Atlantic in their boat
"Amour V" and spent fourteen months sailing through
the Mediterranean and Caribbean. In 1992, Alan traded sailing
for golf and Marjorie became immersed in genealogy and as of 2011 added photography to her projects. Today, they
follow their same pursuits along with enjoying their family, traveling,
their beautiful island paradise in Florida and the good life
"Whenever I mentioned to anyone I was researching my family
history, the first question I was asked was, why?"
During the fall of 1992 our then seven year old twin granddaughters,
Sara and Kristina, entered temple school. In the wonderful innocence
of childhood, they made an observation one day: "If its
true that everyone in the world came from Adam and Eve, then
we are related to everyone." I explained to them we were,
but we are related more directly to our own ancestors.
Our granddaughters questions made me realize they would never
know anything of the past generations. They would never know
about their great grandfather, my father. They would never know
about their 2nd great grandparents who had been my grandparents,
and whom I knew so well. I suddenly wanted to preserve our family's
memories for Sara, Kristina, Zachary, Brandon, Jessica and Julia,
our grandchildren, and for future generations.
After the first week of the project, I realized a family tree
of a few generations and the memories of immediate family members
would not be enough. The more I researched and the more I learned,
the further I wanted to go back in time. Recently, the project
expanded to include the ancestors of my father and mother-in-law.
The rewards of this project have been numerous. I discovered
the personalities and histories of many of our ancestors. I
have gained compassion for many of those whom I previously did
not understand...I have a great respect for those who came before
I feel this project has been one of the most rewarding experiences
of my life. I have renewed family relationships which had drifted
apart. I have met and worked with wonderful professionals who
taught me how to do genealogical work, and who provided outstanding
research and documentation for this family history. I have found
and met relatives of both of my parents and my own generations
who I never would have otherwise known. Discovering and meeting
cousins who grew up in Ukraine and live either here or still
in the old country has been an experience equal to no other.
Although many of the personal stories have been eliminated from
this public web site, I hope you too will gain insight into
your ancestors and the past history. It is our wish, this project
accomplishes for all of our families what it was meant to impart:
Insight into those who came before us and a preservation of
these memories for those who will come after us.
