Six Generation Celebration
"The Alhadeff family name is among the most recognized in the Jewish Community in Washington State. But its prominence is easily matched by its proliferation. What began with a single young man arriving in Seattle from the Isle of Rhodes in the Mediterranean, just over a century ago, has grown into a family tree that sprawls across nine family branches through seven generations since David Alhadeff first set foot in Seattle, just after the dawn of the 20th century. That information was gathered and collected by Roly Alhadeff, whose grandfather was that teenager from Rhodes. Though she's not even a hobbyist genealogist, Alhadeff did the leg work on her family history as part of the Washington State Jewish Historical Society's 'Six Generation Celebration' a fundraising event held on May 4." (JT News April 18, 2007) Chaired by, Helen Stusser, the WSJHS sought out Jewish families who have documentable history of six generations or more having lived in the state and created this exhibit for you to enjoy.
