I am trying to find descendants of Ben and Sarah (nee Krameroff) Shapiro, who
arrived in New York >from Kiev, Ukraine in 1914. They became naturalised US
citizens in 1919 and had three sons, Alexander, Philip and David, all born between
1918 and 1924. The lived in Brooklyn for many years, and may have had a house in
As far as I am aware, these five members of the family are all deceased. Either
Philip or David, or both, married and had a family. I have seen a photo of Ben and
Sarah with a young girl, though I have no idea who she is.
Sarah was the sister of my grandmother, who emigrated >from Ukraine to London in
1911. My grandmother, Faiga Golob, and her husband, Morris visited the Shapiros in
1949, and Sarah and family came to London by ship several times.
I would dearly like to trace any surviving Shapiro descendants; they may no longer
live in New York.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
