I want to send a tremendous thank you to Mark Halpern and JRI-Poland for their
latest records update.
My grandfather, Sidney (Shmuel) Bernstein was born in Podkamien, Galicia. As
his parents were first cousins, this whole branch of my family is >from this
town. For the last 20 years, I have been told that there were no records that
exist >from this town.
Thanks to the latest update, I have finally seen a record that proves that the
BERNSTEINs and BARERs were >from Podkamien. I can't tell you how emotional I
got, to finally have some real proof that Podkamien is my ancestral homeland.
I can't wait to get to Cleveland and learn more!
Thank you so much,
