Yes, I actually have some family events that fell on February 29! No deaths, which is always nice, and no marriages, but three births (and two in the same year!) mean that Leap Day merits its own post.
Chaim Avraham Birnboim, son of Menashe Birnboim and Sophie Garfinkel, was born February 29, 1936 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He is my 3rd cousin once removed on my Meckler line through the Garfinkels.
John Thixton Gaunt, son of John Gaunt and Mararuth Schneiter, was also born February 29, 1936, but in Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana. He is my 6th cousin.
Michael Aaron Cucinotta was born February 29, 1988 in Washington. He is my 2nd cousin once removed on my Gauntt line.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
