Searching for obituary and other info
Posted: 01/16/2019 - 10:57 am
My name is Janet Augusta and I am doing family tree research for my husband’s family. 

1. Looking for information on Mary Holodnik Pringle.  (My mother in law’s first cousin) Born in Export Pennsylvania 1919. Died in Waco 1995. Is there an obituary for Mary? 

2. Mary was in a relationship with a Jewish dentist in or near Waco possibly named Berkpile, Burkbile, Berkepile?   This resulted in a son Michael who was given up for adoption. 

Many thanks. I will be glad to given any fee or donation for this search.
