To put this tree into framework:  The goal of this tree is only to display the lineage of Bessie and Joseph Tartakowsky, who I’ve bolded in the tree below.  The rest of the tree- Bessie’s parents and siblings- is just to frame the tree within the rest of the family history that I know.  Rebecca’s name is a link to a tree of her descendants; and I am working on the lineages of Phillip, Max, and Leib.  The last tree to name many of these relatives (Beril and Mochala and their children) is found in the second tree in this post, however it’s quite out of date by now.
