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), daughter of Moses REINER. Jacob and Elka had the
following children and grandchildren:

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. Please let me know privately if you
would like a copy of this spreadsheet.
