My great-grandmother's brother Chaim Goldberg was prominent in the early decades of the 20th century in a shul on Floyd Street--which I can't seem to locate. If anybody has, I would appreciate knowing about it.  It could well have been the Brooklyn Roumanian-American Congregation you mention at an earlier address--though he was Russian, not Romanian. A cousin some years back sent me this Brooklyn shul directory. See attached.  The first page shows a receipt in Yiddish re another family member by marriage for this synagogue.  What follows a published directory of shuls in Brooklyn over various years, with the last page mentioning the Roumanian-American Congregation.  This document might help family researchers in general if they are not familiar with it since it includes dates and presiding rabbis.
