I have been looking for the passage of my great grandfather, Moshe
Chaim Rubinstein, for years now with no success. He was born about 1851
in Ivenets (spelled Iwenitz by the Germans), now Belarus and must have
come to the U.S. between 1899 and 1906, as he left a wife pregnant with
a child who was born Jan. 1900 and this child and the other of the two
left behind joined him here in 1906. He was probably preceded in the
U.S. by a son Ike, who came about 1902 and spent most of his years in
Manhattan (Lower East Side-East 1st Ave. and E. 13th st.). I know he
lived off and on with this son and his family. He was also preceded by
two brothers (found them in Hamburg records and they must be the right
people), Benjamin in June 1890 and Pesach in July 1892.
I did find a missing passage for part of the family as Kubinstein and
I see that some others are in the Hamburg lists as Rabinstein!
Any ideas and/or help would be most appreciated.
