Our Kaminsky Kasle Tennebaum family tree is an outgrowth of the family history research of Kaminsky, Kasle, and Tennebaum family members performed over the last half century. Originally at Rootsweb's World Connect project at http://wc.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=kaminsky, our Kaminsky Kasle Tennebaum Family Tree now has two versions, and has been split into three branches at one of them.. There is a less up to date but more fully featured graphically based copy of the tree containing all three families at http://kaminskytree.tribalpages.com/. But the most up to date version at http://thecohens.theunixplace.com/trees/kaminsky/ has now been split into three branches to enable more frequent updating, and you can visit the specific trees for our Kaminsky family, for our Kasle family, and for our Tennebaum family branches. Our site at theunixplace may go down occasionally, due to system upgrades, but generally will be back within a few minutes or hours, so try again if it is not reachable.

Meanwhile, we hope you will enjoy the information and guided tour below explaining how to maximize the family tree features available here at Rootsweb.

Louis and Rose Silverstein

The Silversteins play a key role in our family tree because three of their daughters married into our family: Sarah, Clara, and Pearl. So, the genealogy of their parents, Louis and Rosa Silverstein, is an integral part of our family history.

You can read more about Louis and Rose Silverstein's daughter Pearl's family on our Kasle Family genealogy page, and about their daughters Sarah and Clara on our Kaminsky Family genealogy page.

Kaminsky, Kasle and Tennebaum Trees at TheUnixPlace

The home pages for each of our text-based trees, our Kaminsky family tree (including the Silversteins), our Kasle family tree, and our Tennebaum family tree, each have links to descendant charts for the primary branches represented in that tree.

At the top of most pages you will also find a link to the NAME index for that tree, and at the bottom of every page, there is a FreeFind box which may help you find family members who went by other names than the primary one shown in the NAME index. FreeFind will search all our trees on that site, so if you do not know which branch your ancestors were in, it should help you locate the appropriate pages in our trees there.

The trees consist solely of text based individual profiles which show that person's immediate family members. , To browse the tree, or to find out more about that person's parents, spouses or children, select the name of a in the profile, of either of their parents, or of their spouse or one of their children. Then click on that name to view that family member's profile.

Each person's profile will contain basic birth, marriage and death information, along with the names of the person's immediate family members, as well as any other names to be found for this person. There also is a NOTES section at the bottom of each profile with more information on various topics if that person has notes.

Kaminsky Kasle Tennebaum Tree at TribalPages

Our graphical Kaminsky Kasle Tennebaum Tree is generally less up to date than the trees for the specific branches at http://thecohens.theunixplace.com/trees/, and is more challenging to figure out because there are so many choices about how to view the tree, but it's pages show people's names in boxes so people's relationship are easier to understand.

The HOME PAGE for the graphical version of our merged Kaminsky Kasle Tennebaum tree provides basic information about the tree, and about half way down the page, there is a section for "Getting around the Tree". The information below is meant to supplement that information, explaining how to make choices for viewing different parts and views of the tree.

At the top of almost every page, directly below any ads, is a black menu bar as shown below. Clicking on a word in that menu bar will trigger a dropdown submenu, and will take you to a page of that type in the tree. Below that black menu bar will be a list of the options for that part of the tree.

[tribalpages menu bar]

To start with, you may wish to simply search for a person using the search box on the right of the menu bar, or click on "People" on the menu bar. The resulting choices, shown below, will give you the ability to visit either the "Last Name" or the "Name" index.

[tribalpages menu bar for people]

Choosing "View" on the menu bar provides you with most of the ways available to view information about a particular person in the tree.

[tribalpages menu bar for views]

Then, each page showing information about people in the tree will have a small box displaying a person's name, and selecting a different name in that box will change to a page or report that is for that person. If you are on a VIEW or REPORT page, changing the type of view or report (shown as a list of choices below the black menu bar) will cause the page to change to display that type of view or report for the person already selected.

About Names in Our Trees

In some cases, you will see a plus sign "+" or a question mark "?" after a name. What this means is as follows:

?  single question marks have been appended to the surnames (i.e., a last name) of women whose maiden name is unknown
???  multiple question marks at the end of a name indicate that the full name is not clear in the source data
+  plus signs have been appended to given names (i.e., first names) when it is not clear whether the entry represents information belonging to a new person not currently in the tree, or to someone already in the tree - it is an unattached or possible duplicate entry


This is a partial list of the sources used to construct the tree. If you wish to know exactly which sources were used for information on a specific person in the tree, please do email us.
