For family reunion #lithuania


Fidell, Eugene <eugene.fidell@...>
 

For a July 7 family reunion, I am trying to determine the hometown of my
maternal great grandparents, Aaron and Rachel (REICHSTEIN) GREENBERG. Their
dates are roughly 1845-1933 and 1850-1932 respectively. They had 10
children: two unknown who died in Europe plus Nathan (perhaps -- see below
-- born in Kovno 1874), Pauline (SCHER), 1875, Bertha/Becky/Brainke
(ROSENBERG), 1876, Yettie (KANE), 1879, Harry, 1880, Benjamin, 1885,
Simon, 1887, and Ada/Ida/Adil/Adeline (TULMAN), 1891 (in NY).

Clues: Aaron and Rachel are buried at Mokom Sholom Cemetery, Queens, NY,
in the Yad Shavell plot (modern Siauliai). Neither was ever naturalized i
n the US. Census returns list them at one point as coming >from Rus-Pol.
One census return has a lined-out reference to Suwalki. Son Benjamin is
shown on one census return as having been born in Kovno. Family oral
tradition also has it that they were >from Yegorsky (now Augustow, Poland,
previously Congress Poland). Not knowing the hometown of this clan is
very frustrating. I'm open to suggestions -- and of course will be
overjoyed to hear >from cousins.
