Dear Dr. Taitz,
I saw your post on Harry Bounel and the 1940 census. I wanted to make sure that you were aware that Michelle Obama has now hidden hers Mother’s side of the Robinson family tree in Ancestry. She has made this branch of her tree PRIVATE. This of course is the branch that contains the Cohens. If you log on to Ancestry and search for Michelle Obama under public family trees you will find hers. Then click on family tree under her picture. The first time that you do so, if you watch the screen closely you can see the name Cohen flash briefly before the private cloak drops over the private tree members.
I’m sure you already know that the 1940 census shows Harry and the Cohens living in adjacent units in the same building in New York. It also shows that both Harry and Sam Cohen were from Russia. Although the listing shows Harry living with Louis and Blanche Julius as a lodger, it’s possible that Harry was just visiting with them when the census taker knocked on the Louis’s door. Or possibly there was some family connection between the Cohens and the Louis-es.
I understand that the SSA is stonewalling the release of Harry Bounel’s records because they don’t have a death certificate for him. This doesn’t make sense because he was born in 1890 and thus would now be 123 years old. I’m sure you already know that the SSA, just like law enforcement, applies the 100-year rule for presumption of death. Thus the SSA has no legal right to stonewall the release of his SSA records under a FOIA request.
I saw you on CSPAN
