A combined card index to street names and house addresses has been prepared for
New York County, for the New York state census for 1905, 1915 and 1925. Each
card shows, for each address, the AD (Assembly District), ED (Enumeration
District), and page number which is then used to obtain the film with the census

the Family History Library and is available on loan >from any Family History

The films are also available in the NY Public Library and various other

Searching cousins Sam or Dov GOLDBERG, Toronto #general

Ada <adag@...>
 

In trying to complete my family tree, I need information on my Auntie
Shaindel's branch of the GLUSTEIN family. My first cousin, Becky
Skulsky, daughter of Shaindel, married to Zawel GOLDBERG, had two sons,
Sam and Dov, originally >from Ottawa, who apparently now live in Toronto,
Ontario. No one else in the family seems to know their addresses.

If you know these brothers, could you please call and one and give my
e-mail address or e-mail me and let me know their addresses. Their
grandmother was my aunt. Their mother and father are deceased, and I
don't know how to contact their mother's sisters or them.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

It is rather unlikely that before WWII there have lived Jewish families
"POURPLE" in The Netherlands. The name is absent in our book "In Memoriam"
that lists all of the 100,000 victims of the Holocaust >from Holland and
therefore contains virtually all of the Jewish surnames >from before WWII.
How sure are you about the spelling of this name?

Hi,
My grandparents used to belong to:
Congregation Ohav Shalom in Inwood
it's located at: 4724 Broadway in Inwood (New York City)

I remember going their as a child and wonder what has become of the
congregation. I also would like to check and see if they have any
information regarding my grandparents, Erna and Justin KUHL. I recently
drove past it and was told by a passing lady that it is almost defunct.

If anyone could be of help I would be most appreciative.
