|Gary Michelson, Larry Michelson, Eric Michelson, Mark Michelson, Ellin Karlin, Joseph Karlin, Ester Spacktor, Norman Michelson - family tree, history, biography, parents, brothers, grandparents|
UPDATE: 100913 - I don't think Gary is the youngest of four brothers as he tells everyone. He tries to use that as the reason why he didn't get any attention from his parents. When his mother and brothers sued the estate they sued as "Eric, Gary, Mark and Larry." That's not alphabetical order. It's chronological order by birth date. The birth dates I find for them are 1947, 1949, 1951 and 1952 respectively. Psychologist Dr. Larry K Michelson is indeed his brother as he dedicated one of his many books "to my loving and much loved grandparents, Esther and Joseph Karlin." He is a psychologist, professor and writer. He writes about treating mentally ill people including children. Perhaps Gary is the reason he went into this field. He was born November 6, 1952. They all have children, even grand children. Gary and his brother Eric both graduated from high school at the same time even though they are 16 months apart. Gary's brother Eric was an honor student, athletic, social and better looking than Gary, see below pic. They had different addresses for some reason. I assume Gary was with his granny and Eric went with the mom. Maybe they are half siblings like me and my sis. We were about the same age difference and for a short time were in the same grade.
Gary's maternal grandmother is Esther Spacktor who was married to Joseph Abraham Karlin aka Kalinski, Kalinsky. Joseph Karlin was an accountant then owned a button and trimming store called Joseph Karlin Company Fabrics. It was still open until 2010. Joseph and Esther also had a son named Lawrence and another named Arthur who became a well known doctor Dr. Arthur Karlin in New York. All of his grandparents were Jewish, spoke Yiddish and English, and were born in Russia or Poland. His parents were born in the US.
I just realized that none of Gary Michelson's relatives acknowledge him in any way not even on Facebook. I'm sure it's because they don't want to have anything to do with him. If I knew then what I know now about Gary, I never would have had anything to do with him either.
In interviews and in a book Gary Michelson says horrible things about his mom and dad. Mom supposedly didn't give him any attention. She supposedly didn't like taking care of her sons. Dad called him stupid all the time. As I look at his mom she seems like a sweet kind lady who loves kids and family. I bet Gary is making up part of his "miserable" childhood. And if not, he's a senior citizen. Time to get over it. His mom is friends with his brother Eric, his daughters and grandson.
UPDATE: I just realized that Gary's mom was 18 years old when she married Norman. They had a baby in 1947 when she was 19 years old. Then she had Gary in 1949 at age 21. From her high school year book at age 18.
|Ellin Karlin, high school|
She went to Germantown High school. A note in her yearbook states "Ellin Karlin leaves her hilarious family troubles to any willing sympathizers."
