    Nina Marks was Jewish. her full name was Nina Shlain Marks. Both Marks and Shlain are Jewish surnames.

      Are you sure her full name was Nina Shlain Marks?

      Anna’s ancestor is listed as Nina S. Marks when she married Oliver Bury Popplewell in 1922. There was a Nina Shlain who married a Sydney Marks in 1932. Then they had at least two children together. So the chronology doesn’t fit.

      I see that public member trees does list her as Nina Shlain Marks… but they also list her as born in 1904. As I understand it, Anna’s great-grandmother Nina Marks was born in 1890.

      Nina S. Marks (later Popplewell) could have still been Jewish, but I don’t think she was the same Nina Shlain.

    • follers says: lists Anna’s great-grandmother Nina Marks as this woman:

      In which case, yes, Nina was Jewish. I’m not totally sure it’s the right woman (though it’s likely).
