    That was uncalled for.

  3. madman says:

    She was born in 1983, not 1982. And her birth name is Amber Rose Levonchuck.

    Why was the names of her parents removed? As I’ve said before, it makes it harder to do more research. I’ve seen that you’ve started to remove the mothers’ maiden names too. Please don’t.

      Uh, her father’s name was never listed here. There was a sentence saying that her mother’s “name is either Shauna Soares or Dorothy,” which I removed because I didn’t know what the source was, and because it sounded stupid.

      And no, I don’t think listing the incredibly comprehensive living parents’ names of very obscure people is a good idea. Most genealogy sites don’t. Although that probably wouldn’t apply in Amber Rose’s case since she’s apparently famous.

      • madman says:

        Why? I guess when it comes to people whose ancestry is fully discovered, it’s not as necessary (even though I don’t see why it shouldn’t be there). But again, knowing the parents’ names makes it much easier to do more research. We all build our research on other people’s research. If someone finds the parents, someone else might find the grandparents. Everything that is relevant to the person’s ancestry should be included.

    If Frank Joseph Levonchuck was born in 1933, how is he the son of Eva if she only married Phillip in 1941?

    Philip’s first wife Pauline Tarnowski died in 1936, so it’s most likely that she’s Frank’s mother.

    She looks quadroon, like a brazilian mulatto.
