My Family Tree

My entire family tree is now available for viewing. Please note: I have also included a mini family tree from an unrelated Flax family - the descendants of Abraham and Cecilia Paulson - as this may be of interest to other Flax family researchers and one day links may be found between the various Flax families.

My Dad's Biography is now online.

I have had several queries from Spanish genealogists about the surname VILANOVA. In my case the name VILANOVA is not of Spanish origin but is derived from "coming from the town of Vilna in Lithuania". Many Russian surnames end in -nov and -nova. Here is a reply in Spanish for all those Spanish researchers:

El apellido de soltera de mi abuela era VILANOVA, pero no era de origen Espanol. Varias apellidos Rusus terminan NOVA (feminino) o NOV (masculino). El significado en este caso es: Viniendo de la poblacion de Vilna en Lithianai. Con las differncias que existen en el alfabeto Ruso el apellido puede ser deletreado: Villanoffa o Villanof, Bellanoffa o Bellanoff, Wilanova o Willanov. Mi abuela lo pronunciaba Vilanova. Mi familia no es Sefardi, nostros somos Ashkenazi y originarios de Latvia, Lituania y Rusia. Mi abuelo era Rabbi Jehuda Vilanova en Rostov en Rusia.
