Marcus Family Reunion

Marcus Family Reunion

19-21 August, 2022 | Dublin, Ireland

Details

For some time we have been toying with the idea of trying to organize an extended Marcus family reunion. As far as we know there has never been one and we thought it would be a nice idea to try and bring people together who are related and who in all probability have either never or rarely met… 

Wanted: Marcus Photos

The Marcus Reunion Organizing committee has been busy developing a program of activities for our big event in August 2022. More details on this in due course. In the interim we are looking for Marcus related photographs that we can use for both the Reunion and for this website. Ideally the older the better but we are happy to consider photos of any generation. If you have any such photos that you would like to share please send them to marcusreunion@gmail.com

*If you are unsure if you “qualify” go to the Yids of Ireland family tree website.  If you need a login email Mike Solomons: mjsolomons@yahoo.com – Or you can find yourself on this family tree PDF. If you are aware of any errors or omissions in the family tree please contact Mike Solomons.

Family is important and whilst the Marcus family used to be, so we understand, a close-knit group, that has obviously changed over time and with many of us now living in different countries and continents. 

The Coronavirus pandemic of 2020 has brought home to many that family, usually taken for granted, are the most important things in most people’s lives so now seems an appropriate time to start the ball rolling with this family reunion.

We believe the logical place to hold a reunion would be Dublin where the Marcus family predominantly lived for many years. Some of you are still living there today! And we think a side trip to Cork, which was the original landing place of the Marcus family in Ireland, and where many of our relatives are buried, should also be on the itinerary.

Further details on the event will be posted on this site as they become available.  For now please spread the word.
