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