Hello,
I have been doing research on my mother's family, the CAPLINs, and a
new-found cousin gave me some interesting information. He
told me that my grandfather and his brothers originally came from
Russia > (formerly spelled KAPLAN), and were brought to London, England
by the > Rothschild family. I just found information via the internet
saying that the Rothschild family helped fund the Jews' Free School.
They "provided immigrant children with a refuge and a means of escape
from poverty, educated them, anglicized them and sent them out to the
world fit to contribute to society."
Is anyone familiar with this organization? Do you know if there are
existing records that would help me with my research? >Thank you!
