Hi John,

I realize that your postings are over a year old, but given that we are related, I thought I'd respond to you in the hopes that you check the forum again. Your mother and my mother are first cousins. My mother is Lulu Montesi, but her maiden name is Rishdan (or Abdo as she went by for most of her adult life). Her mother was Fannie(Fomeia) Gabriel and she married Louis Rishdan (at some point my grandfather changed the family name to "Abdo", which was actually his father's first name). I have emailed Mary Gabriel for info, as I saw her a while back and she offered to send what she had, but I haven't heard back yet. If you have any info that you can share, I'd greatly appreciate it. My husband is doing extensive genealogical research. Hope to hear from you.

Sharon Montesi
