I am searching for the descendants of Philip REIFER, born 1889 in Rzeszow to
Joachim (Chaim) REIFER and Chana SALIK. He grew up in Jaroslaw and studied
pharmacy in Vienna. The Ellis Island database shows two trips to the U.S. -
in 1907 (Philipp REIFER) and in 1913 (Filippo REIFER). According to family
sources, he settled in the U.S., possibly in Brooklyn, and was a pharmacist.
He is said to have married and had children.
I have been unable to find Philip in the 1920 and 1930 federal censuses or
in the 1933-34 Brooklyn City Directory. Before I launch an all-out search of
naturalizations, vital records, etc., I thought I'd check with you: does the
name ring a bell?
Also, I'm wondering if anyone has ever run across professional directories
of pharmacists that cover any years between 1920 and 1950. The earliest one
that I could identify was published in the 70s.
