Prusiner Charitable & Benevolent Association #usa #general


I have recently been given a copy of a short memoir outlining the inception of this organization by Harris Fine, Samuel Fine, Morris Kaplan, Barnet Levin, Barnet Chazen, Moses Watsky, and Fishel Levin.It seems like a charter was granted by NY State on 3 Dec 1888. Harris Fine was married to Tillie Berestitsky.

I am not clear on where Prusina is/was; it seems like Poland although there are other towns with similar names. I haven't really located much info about this association.

If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate the help. I am also happy to share the document.
