I've recently been looking into family history as my Grandfather (Montegue Arnold Gaffin) is nearly 90. I've yet to read every post here or on other sites, but I've not really found anything definite as to where we fit into some of the trees. Here is the little bit that I know, would be very curious if anyone can help make the connection:
We are of jewish heritage as far back as I'm aware. Here is a brief tree starting with my Great Grandfather.
Harry A. Gaffin --> Monte A. Gaffin (Montegue Arnold) -->Stephen Jay Gaffin (my father) --> Matthew Bryan Gaffin.
Harry A. Gaffin: Married to Hetty N. Stebman (deceased). Came over from England around 1920. He is now deceased. One notable thing was that he helped Albert Einstein bring some family over either before or during WWII. There were many letters back and forth and my grandfather (Monte), apparently got to meet him once. Harry died shortly after I (Matthew) was born.
Montegue (Monte) Arnold Gaffin: Age 89. Still living in New Jersey and married to Florence Joy Blau. He had 3 sons, my father (Stephen) being the eldest. The other two are Mark & Rick (probably Richard). Monte was a flew bombers as a navigator in WWII. I should have more info on that soon.
Stephen Jay Gaffin: Still living. Age 62. Lives in Dallas, TX. He moved to dallas when he was 30 I believe.
Matthew Bryan Gaffin (me): Lives in Dallas, TX. Age 29. Married with 2 sons, Cole & Caleb.
