Using a wide and detailed body of sources and casting a much wider net
than is customary is useful not only for anyone doing research
anywhere critical records have been lost or destroyed, but also for
those seeking to create a fuller, richer family history.

presentations during International Jewish Genealogy Month. For more

Hebrew Infant Home Bronx, New York #general

Jackie Wasserstein
 

I am trying to get information about the Hebrew Infant Home that was
located at 100 Kingsbridge Avenue in the Bronx. Was it an home for orphans
or a Hospital?

I was trying to find my paternal grandparents Joseph and Minnie Geller, my
father, Albert and his sister, Miriam (also known as Marion) in the 1925
New York State Census.

I came across an entry for a Miriam Geller age 1 who was living at the
Hebrew Infant Home. The age would be correct as Miriam was born in 1924.

Descendants of Katie Silverberg Wallman or Wollman, in Philadelphia, PA #general

Judith27
 

Dear JewishGendom,

I am seeking descendants of Katie Silverberg Wallman or Wollman.

Katie Silverberg (or Silberberg) was born about 1877 in NYC, and she
married Henry Wallman or Wollman in February 1897 in New York, New York.
Shortly thereafter, this couple then moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
from various census records, it appears Katie and Henry had several children,
all born in Philadelphia between 1901 and 1921, including Louis,
Isadore/Edward, Lillie (who may have married a Meyerowitz), Frances
(who may have married a Dubinsky), Esther (who may have married a Moss),
as well as Milton, and Meyer Wallman.

Is there anyone out there who might know anything further about descendants
of this family, or who can help with Philadelphia research?

I look forward to your replies and suggestions.

May you enjoy the last days of the Tishrei Holidays, especially Simchat
Torah!

I have noted many requests for pictures etc of odd gravestones and now
find I need to make the same request.

If anyone is visitingt the Shaarey Zedek Cemetery in Winnipeg,
information about a gravestone would be appreciated. The photo in the
Historical Centre is blurred.

This is the stone for Calvin FINKELSTEIN, location 1F - 10 - 3, next to

Thank you.
