I am trying to find people who might be researching Eddie CANTOR.
I was told that Eddie was my Grandfather's cousin. I am finding it
difficult to establish any connections.

I do have Eddie's death certificate, his marriage certificate to Ira
TOBIAS and his mother's, Meta ISKOWITZ's death certificate.

I am trying to obtain Eddie's birth certificate born 1/31/1892 as per
his death certificate, SS application and his book Take My Life. I have
checked the NYC archives 3x to no avail. I have tried under Isidore
ITKOWITZ ( His real name up until age 6) and Iskowitz >from 1890 to
1894 still nothing. I am also trying to obtain his father's death
certificate Michael Iskowitz, Itzkowitz died between 1894 nd 1897, but
also no luck. Lastly, I am trying to get his grandmother's death
certificate Esther KANTROWITZ died sometime after 1905.

Does anyone have any of these documents or have any leads. Please let me
know.

Thanks,
Dave Pitchon

PS a great book on Eddie Cantor's life as written by himself and Jane
Kesner Ardmore is Take My Life 1957.
