Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn has always been a favorite place for me. Now I know why! I smelled the sea air as an infant. I still love going to the waterfront and walking along the docks.

We lived in an apartment on Hewes Street in Brooklyn, New York from 1947 until our move to Hillsdale, NJ in 1950.

This is the neighborhood park where my parents often took me for an outing.

  1. Hi, my family also come from Sparta. You have done a good job with the website. I dare say my DNA results would be similar to yours, but I haven’t submitted a sample yet. Keep up the good work.! Yiasou, George.

    • Hi George — do let me know if you decide to take a DNA test. It can be a real eye-opener, and it can lead to learning more about our family roots when we connect with new “cousins.” Thank you for reading my blog!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your heartfelt thoughts, emotions and love, regarding your mother to the world.
