Can't find anything so hope the paper may have a clue;
I'm searching for parents of Robert KING b: 1920's IL, thought Chicago. Don't have much to go on yet.
Robert's mother was Sarah Jacobson who married Benjamin (surname spelling unsure) Koenigsberg???
Lived in IL at time of son, Robert's birth in the 1920's. Both parents may have come from Russia--and were Jewish.
Ben and Sarah owned a hardware store in Chicago. (Also, Is there a way to obtain information about this store?)
Son, Robert went by surname "King" as an adult, don't know at time of childhood.
Ben died in 1940's in Chicago and Sarah moved to CA after that.
Thank you very much for any help.
Welcome to the IL-OLD-NEWS mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.

6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR POST?
1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
