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…
When: 19 to 21 August 2022
Where: Dublin for main reunion event with optional overnight side trip to Cork on Mon/Tue 22/23 August 2022 (including visits to Cobh, Blarney Castle, Rock of Cashel & Limerick)
Who: Anyone who is a descendant/partner of Mordechai Shlomo Marcus (born 1831)*
*If you are unsure if you “qualify” go to the Yids of Ireland family tree website. If you need a login email Mike Solomons: firstname.lastname@example.org – 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.
