I registered as a researcher for Kamenka, Moldova, the town my mother
was from. The combination of a common last name and small town led to
contact >from a Berenstein who came to my mother's apartment in NYC.
After he looked at our photo album, he concluded that we were not
related to him.

Right away he called the other Berensteins >from the town whom he knew
had moved to New Jersey about ten years before.
When those Berensteins visited the apartment and looked at the album,
they were amazed to see photos of themselves. They were my
grandmother's brother's grandchildren.
