I am looking for descendants of Yehezekiel Bernstein (AKA Berenstein,
Burnstine, Birnstine, etc.) who left Kalvaria, Suvalki for Detroit in the
1860's or 1870's and eventually ended up in the Port Richmond section of
Philadelphia where he was joined by some of his relatives as well as former
landsleit, Asher Silverman, Pinchas Levy, Shmuel Natan Michal & Moshe Gorman.
Yehezekial (Ezekial) Bernstein had a son, David Bernstein, who was living in
1929. I don't know when he was born. Also living in this neighborhood in
1877 were Jacob Berenstein, who I believe was Yehezekial's son, an A.
Berenstein and an M. Berenstein.
If you have any information on this Bernstein family and their descendants,
please contact me by e-mail : joansgross@.... Thanks.
