I have been trying to find Benjamin SHAPIN and his family in the 1940 census or anywhere else.
He was born in 1898 in Russia, his wife Sarah/Sadie Silverstein was born in 1902 in Poland. They married in NY in 1917, had four children
Benjamin, Meyer, Nancy and Shirley, born in NYC.
I found Benjamin Shapin married to Hilda Obod in the 1940 census in NYC.
The others do not appear in the census, nor in the draft registrations.
Perhaps the family changed its name. I tried Sha*
Can someone suggest an alternate search mechanism?
New York, NY
