LAPIDUS FAMILY
« on: 00:40:25, 15/04/19 »
Hi,

I have been building my family tree for about 25 years and always had problems finding my Grandmother's family due to her and her Brother having been put in an orphanage when she was 9 months old. They were born in Boston, Mass. and due to things which I don't really want to go into here, they were brought to the UK to live with their Father's Lapidus family in 1894.  They ended up in an orphanage as I said, but I've been trying very hard to find Lapidus family, not for any other reason other than for the tree. 

My Grandmother's Lapidus family lived in Manchester and owned a Matzo factory and today I found that they also owned chip shops and restaurants. I have no idea where in Manchester these were but I wondered if there are members of the Lapidus family who owned those businesses on this Forum.

I would love to hear more about the family and their businesses as we know next to nothing about my Grandmother's family.

I am hoping so much that there are members of the family on here. As I said, all I want to know is family history for the tree and not after anything more. I know sometimes people can get worried when people are trying to find members of their family who they don't know. 

I did a DNA test on Ancestry. com and it came up with a massive amount of Lapidus people from all over the world but it's hard to see how we are related.

I dont think Yang is a very popular name in China and Japan. It would be hard to find the family tree online. Why dont you hire a specialist, he is able to do deep research for a family tree because they have access to more resources.

Hi Marj,

Thank you for replying. No, I've not been able to find either of them on the 1901 census but I did find an entry for her for 1911 but not in the ordinary census, but one where she was in a home for unmarried mothers.  People who were in orphanages, prisons and other types of institution were not put on the normal census but were on separate ones.  It took me years go find my Husband's Grandfather on a census because he wasn't showing up on the normal census and then I found he was on a prison census.   At the time of the 1901 census my Grandmother and her Brother would have been in an orphanage because the family they had taken to live with had put both the children in an orphanage straight away when they arrived in 1895.

Hi Celeste,

Yes, I've checked out that but no luck. 

I've found tons of pages with info and trees but although they are the same family as mine my Grandmother and
Great Grandparents aren't on the trees. I was hoping to find a member of the Lapidus family on this form so I could contact
them for info direct. It would seem that many of the Lapidus family who are still around no nothing of my Grandmother
and her Brother. They were a deep, dark secret to to their Mother bringing them here from Boston, Mass and literally
"dumping" them with the family before getting on a ship with another Daughter to go back to the US. The family didn't
want them so they put them both in an Orphanage. I did manage to contact one woman about 15 years ago, (I can't
remember where I found her) and she didn't know about them but when she spoke to either her Father or Grandfather
he knew and he told her not to write to me any more because he knew what had happened and felt very bad about the
way his family had treated my Grandmother and her Brother and found it too upsetting to be reminded of it through me.
So she stopped writing. I was very upset and annoyed as it had taken me years to find her so I deleted all her emails
and her email address and now I can't even remember her name (she was no longer a Lapidus) so can't search for her
via somewhere like Facebook. I'm really sorry I deleted everything from her. I did keep copies of what she told me but
had a computer crash and lost it all before I could back it up. :-(  It's because the family were ashamed at what they did
that my Grandmother etc. were not put on the family tree. :-(

It was a stupid thing for me to do in deleting it all.

Hi Daralyn,

The Manchester Evening News - on a Saturday - has a letter page where people write in for information on friends and family, rather like putting an advert in a paper - perhaps you could try that :-\

If anyone can be of help please post or pm her.

Hi Celeste,

That is a brilliant idea. Thank you for suggesting it. I'm in London
So didn't know the name of any of the newspapers up North and
it didn't enter my head to find the name of one and write something.
I will do that, thank you. 

Thank you so much for your suggestion. :-)
