 Beracha/Braha, I have some information

I found this website by trying to find elusive ancestors in the Braha family. I found it by way of searching for one of the husbands, Fahim Fanous. In the gedcom at this site, I found ancestors (first names is unmistakable) with the last name submitted as Beracha. I don't know when/if the name was changed but it is spelled "Braha" today.

I would also like the person who submitted the gedcom to please contact me. I *believe* the wife of Jacob Braha, Rebecca, her last name was "Crudo" but I can not yet confirm this.

I have not been able to get past the grand-parents Jacob Braha and Rebecca Cruco(?).

There are living relatives and I tried to contact them, but they're not answering me. Probably because they're rich and probably think I might want something, when all I want is the family history which is worth more to me than anything.

Google Jacques Braha, president of Fulcrum.

Here is the information that I have:

Jack Costi is the source of that Beraha family. He submitted the data in July 2004. I will forward your post to him by email
