Re: Gertz, Chicago, 1930-2000
Thank you for your reply.
I'm afraid my information is very limited.
My father Jack Gertz (I have not heard from him since 1970) was born and raised in Cicero.He would now be 80+.
When I last heard from him he was still in the Chacigo area.
I do not know the names of his parents (my Gertz grandparents.
I do know that he had a sister named Florence.She married a Bob O'Regan and they lived in the Chicago area.The had at least one son.His name was Bobby.
He had another sister.Her nickname was Babe.She was comitted to a mental hospital, I believe in her 20's.
All this would have placed these Gertz's in the Cicero area sometime after 1915.
I believe my Grandmother died in the early 60's.My Grandfather was already dead at that time.
In here latter years she lived with her daughter Florence (O'Regan).
I have looked for O'Regan's living currently in the Chicago area but with no success.
If any of this rings a bell please let me know.I will continue to search until I find something.
Good luck to us both.
