FC: The Arm & Aaron Family The Early Years

1: Dedication Moses and Blima Arm (Aaron) lived in a small village in Poland named Dynow. They had seven children. In 1898, after Blima passed away, Moses came to the United States to find a better life for his family, one that was free of hardship, one in which they could thrive . Most of his children and grandchildren followed and they continued to build their new lives together, a close family, celebrating from time to time with family reunions. It is because of him, that we his grandchildren, great grandchildren, great, great grandchildren and other heirs down the line, in the year 2010, celebrate together and remember Moses Arm and his children who gave us love, life and happiness that we remember so warmly. We especially recognize our cousin, Bernice Frant (d) Bernstein, for all that she has done to maintain and preserve our family history. August 22, 2010
