I am hoping someone can help me find information on Raphael HALPERIN. Facts
known are that he appears on the UK 1911 census as a boarder with Myer
Halpern, ? his brother, in London. He had a brief marriage in 1911.
Verbal history is that there may have been brothers or a father with names
Israel and Bernhard and a sister Natalie. I am doubtful of this info.
Verbal history is that his family had a textile firm of some sort in London
and earlier in Vienna. ??
Verbal history has taken 2 paths. One is that he moved to Moscow and had a
family with at least one daughter.
The second path is that he went to Odessa in 1918 because he joined the
British Communist Party.
My research has found a Raphael Halpern (or several) who emigrated from
London to USA 1920-40.
I have a photo of him as a young man if anyone thinks they know my Raphael.
He was born possibly in 1887 or at least in 1880s.
This is just an educated guess that he might have suffered >from thyroid
He is a cousin.
I hope someone will recognize him.
