Looking for the family of my grandmother's sister: Bessie-Bertha SHAPIRO or
SCHAPIRO, nee SCHWITZ, daughter of Gittel and Yossel SCHWITZ. She married
Osias-Yehoshua [in Hebrew] and as far as i know they had one son Isiu-Isidor.
All were born in Bukovina, Austro-Hungaria.
I found in Ellis-Island passenger arrivals - and I am not sure -
Bertha SCHAPIRA that came >from Czernowits, to New-York, US in May 1915. She was
then 40 years old - so she was born on 1875. She came with her son
Isidor, that was then 16 years old. so he was born in 1899.
It is mentiomed that she came to her husband that was already in New-York, USA.
I also have few letters that Bertha wrote in Yiddish to my aunt in
Palestin-Israel during the years 1947-1953.
I have by now only one letter translated to Hebrew - and Bertha wrote
there that her son is married, and work very hard 14 hours a day.
May be I found that Bertha passed away on Oct. 1962, and Osias on Dec.
1951. I found those names buried in Mount Zion Cemetery one near the
other by the society of Wishnitza.
For any information I really thanks in advance,
