Looking for Birthfather

97 views

I am interested in communicating private message with anyone who shares the same ancestors. My family tree is at <https://www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/154085279/family/familyview>.

I've hit a brick wall in pinpointing my birth father.

I was adopted at birth in 1948. I have found my birthmother, but looking for my birthfather. 

Birthmother is Ellen Jane Dowling from New Jersey.

Birthfather's surname is NOVICK, they were immigrants from Russia, possibly lived in Fallsburg NY and had a resort or guest house there. There are a number of me in the Novick family, any of which could be my birthfather. Possibles include Israel Novick, Jack Novick, Mitchell Novick and Jerome Novick.

Strongest DNA connection seems points to Israel Novick as being my birthfather so far.

Israel's brothers are Rubin, Louis and Benjamin. Israel's sons are Alex, Mitchell and Jack

Louis's son is Jerome

Regarding my birthmother - there is possibly a first or 2nd cousin match via familytreeDNA.  This person matches me with 270 shared cm,  longest block 40.  Last name is Loesch.

I see no one has answered this in a week which does not bode well. I am not sure how much help I can be but I do know that there is a group of people on wikitree who specialise in helping adoptees and i think it would certainly not hurt to contact one of the project managers and see if they can help

Latest Update:  Born October 19, 1948 and adopted at birth. Birth mother has been confirmed: Ellen Jane Dowling

Seeking birth father. Confirmed my birth father family is NOVICK. Russian-Jewish immigrants, originally lived in Bronx, NY. Birth father possibly moved to Fallsburgh, NY and operated a guest house/resort on Silver Lake.

Strong DNA connections are pointing to ISRAEL NOVICK. His parents were: Jacob and Ethel (Kornblum) Novick.

Siblings are Lena, Louis, Benjamin, Rubin and Gertrude. His children with wife Dora were Alex, Jack, Mitchell, Miriam and Sylvia

Anyone having more information or willing to help me is greatly appreciated.  I sketched out a tree with DNA results, if someone is willing to look at it and give their analysis that would be great!
