GLICKSTEIN/GLUCKSTERN family, likely from Sniatyn and Kamenka #poland

Brian Blitz

Please let me know privately if you have come across the GLICKSTEIN
(GLUCKSTERN) family, likely originating in Sniatyn, Galicia and/or
Kamenka, Bukowina, in your research.

I've been able to trace the family back to Samuel GLUCKSTERN, likely
born around 1800. His son, Jacob GLUCKSTERN (b. 1841, Austria, d 1917,
New York), married Elka REINER (b. ~1849, Austria, d. 1919, New York),
daugheter of Moses REINER. Jacob and Elka had the following children and

1. Gustav (Gershon) GLUCKSTERN (later GLICKSTEIN) (b. 1870 Sniatyn
d. 1948, New York). Owner of Glickstein Brothers Bottle Company on
104th Street in Manhattan. Married Annie DORTER (b ~1869, Galicia,
d. 1904, New YorK). Children were:

a. Ethel (Nettie) EISENMAN (1889 - 1972
b. Isadore (Eddie) GLICKSTEIN (1891 - 1971) (Bottle manufacturer)
c. Sadie SCHUMAN (1895 - 1980)
d. Samuel GLICKSTEIN (1896-1993). Owner of Marblette Corporation, Long
Island City, New York.
e. Jacob (Julie) GLICKSTEIN (1899 - 1977)
f. William GLICKSTEIN (1906 - 1983) (Mother was Tillie GLICKSTEIN) Owner
of McGinnis restaurant, New York City.

2. Sadie KATZ (18XX-19XX). Had 12 children.

3. Max (Mendel) GLUCKSTERN (sometimes GLICKSTEIN) (b. 1875 - 1965)
Married to Eva. Children were:

a. Hyman GLICKSTEIN (1906-1988). Lawyer.
b. Cy (Solomon) GLICKSTEIN
c. Sylvia COTTON (1912-2008)
d. Lillian PARKER (1917 - ?)


5. Samuel GLUCKSTERN (b. 1888 - 1978). Partner with Gustav in
Glickstein Brothers Bottles.

Apparently, Phil GLUCKSTERN, the restaurateur, was a cousin, but I haven't
been able to figure out the connection.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone with a connection to any of these
families or >from anyone with research experience related to Sniatyn,
Kamenka (Bukowina), or the Galicia-Bukowina border area.

I have also extracted relevant immigration data >from all Glickstein/
Gluckstern immigrants to the US. There are over 440 people on this list
from towns/regions including (spelling may not be right, the handwriting
was difficult to decipher) Augustow, Bucarest, Bukowina, Czernowitz,
Galicia, Horodenka, Jablonow, Kaletz, Kolomea, Kamenka, Kossow, Lemberg
(Lviv), London, Munich, Olkusz, Ostrow, Podolsk, Suczawa, Temescz, Toronto,
Vienna, Warsaw, Wiznitz, Yablonow, Zablonow, Zablotow.
