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 would also appreciate hearing >from anyone with research experience
related to Sniatyn (Galicia), Kamenka (Bukowina), or the Galicia-Bukowina border
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 grandchildren:

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