My mggm and ggf, Jacob (Yankel) and Fannie (Faiga)(Weitzman) ROSENFIELD were
from Yelets, Russia. They arrived in US 1886, living in Providence, RI (10Shawmut St.) until about 1920 where he was a kosher butcher. Had 5 children
that lived, Max, Charles, Louis, Corne (Ralph) and my gm Annie (her twin died
at birth). Jacob had brothers Tevya, Menesha and Alda in RI. I have
telegrams to my gm at her wedding in NJ (1917) >from Aunt Rebecca GORDON and
Aunt Kate ABEDAN >from Providence. Cannot find out anything about these
people. Have searched Jewish Gen, SSI index. Have no idea of when they
died. Is there anyone in RI who can research these two women? Also, is
anyone else out there researching Yelets ( 217 mi. s of Moscow)? I have been
the only person on the database and Jewish Gen for this place.
