Donna Brown <donnab213@...>
My name is Donna Brown and I live in Tallahassee, Florida. I am seeking
assistance in locating an individual's family members to return some items
that I have located. I contacted the Jewishgen help section and they
suggested that I register and post my information in this discussion group.
While looking for another item, I came across a very small in size book
titled, "Abridged Prayer Book for Jews in the Army and Navy of the United
States". It has a copyright date of 1917 by The Jewish Publication Society
of America. Inside the book was a folded piece of paper >from the Orthodox
Old Home, 736 Lakeview Road. I believe this to possibly be located in
Cleveland, Ohio. It appears to be addressed to Max SEIDENFELD, dated
February 4, 1932 and is in reference to "the Yahrzeit" of his departed
mother which fell on Saturday, February 20, 1932.
I was born in Wichita, Kansas and believe the last home that we lived in
before moving was purchased by my parents >from the Seidenfelds (but am not
positive). This home was located on Edgemont. My sister believes that Mr.
Siedenfeld was also a physician. The previous owners left an antique
barrister with many old books. My father loved to read and I inherited this
love and for old books. My parents are both deceased and I have the
barrister and old books. At least one of these old books has the name of
Max Seidenfeld written on the inside cover.
I do not know if Mr. Seidenfeld had any children or subsequent
grandchildren. If there are living descendants and they are interested in
having these items I would love to give these items to them.
I am a retired law enforcement officer and have no ulterior motive other
than to give these items to Mr. Seidenfeld's family if they would like to
have them at no cost to them.
I have photographs of the book and of the piece of paper that I located if
this would assist anyone.
Thank you in advance for any help that you might be able to provide,
