Dear Jewishgenners, I am looking for some information on the following:
I have Hyman BLOOM Born Aug 15 ,1871 Minsk, Russia (I don;t know if he was
really born in Minsk or somewhere near there. ) Died abt 1954 in
Metropolitan Jewish Old Age Home in Coney Island, NY. He was a member of
Minsker Old Men's Benevolent Assoc. The date of death may have been 1955.
I don't know where he is buried.
He came to the U.S. in 1891. At some time he changed his name >from OSHINSKY
to BLOOM. Not known if he changed it before of after arrivng in America.
There is a Marriage Certificate # illegible, for a HYMAN OSHINSKY, dated
3/20/1896. It could be him before he changed his name. ??? Is the Coney
Island Old age home still there and is the Minsker Assoc. still in
Any suggestions or information appreciated.
