You may have seen my response to Question 24 on the my FAQs
24. I've heard that you have some
equally-famous relatives. Is that true?
Well, let's dispel a few rumors.
I am not an an heiress to either the Lloyd J. Harris pies nor Harris-Teeter fortunes.
Nor am I kin to/the same person as Stacy
Harris, the late Canadian-born character actor.
My extended family tree (which you can read all about here) DOES include Israel Miller, Pinky Lee, Morton Gould, Frank Bank, Louis and Regene Cohane, and Mark Bailey. You may
also know my cousin by her stage name, Samantha Harris. (My
grandfather and Samantha's great-grandfather were brothers.)
I'm not the first author in my family. My
great-grandfather, Abraham "Abba" Kramer (July 18, 1858- May 9, 1942)
bears that distinction, courtesy of his published book, The Unity of G-d
(English translation by Dr. Irwin Barkan, principal and education
director of Des Moines' South Side Hebrew Congregation.)
I'm also not the first musician (Thank you, Catherine West!), in the
family. That distinction belongs to my aunt, (née Ruth
Harris), a member of the Women's
Army Corp, who, while stationed in St. Louis, Missouri,
performed as one of Helen Lewis' Rhythm Queens. As
a genealogist, I knew of, or discovered, all of the above information
before I was DNA-tested.
Since then, I have discovered many more relatives.
Far too many to keep up with across the platforms with which
I am most engaged. The list keeps growing so I've found the
key, in some instances, is to let them contact me.
Here's where you come in: If you see your name below (and you
don't merely share the name of the people whose descriptions I have
truncated for reasons of privacy), we are related.
If you recognize the names, please ask these folks if they think they
may be related and, if so, let them know they are free to contact me
through this website's contact
Keep checking back: I'll add new
names as I receive them.
