My guess is that this is a place of business
probably run by Adolf Mandel. Either they're
moving so often that their old residence ad-
dress won't be good by the time of arrival or
they are doing something illegal (in arrivals
or in living conditions) that they wouldn't like
exposed. Check all Mandel families for this
period in the street directories to see if any-
body gives 155/7 as a business address.

Rabbi Chaim Fishel EPSTEIN of Saint Louis #general

Martin Miller <millerm@...>
 

One of our BERKMAN relatives has mentioned that her father said that Rabbi
Chaim Fishel EPSTEIN was his uncle. She told me that he had at least one
son, who was a rabbi, and a daughter Shulamith

I obtained an obituary for Rabbi EPSTEIN, which confirmed the relative's
statement with regard to where he had lived, but the obituary and any other
references do not list his survivors other than his wife, except to say
they had two daughters and five sons. His wife was Ethel NAIVIDEL,
daughter of Rabbi Boruch Nesanel of Taurage, Lithuania.

It's a long story, but for a long time I have been looking for a Rabbi
FINKELSTEIN with a connection to the FEIGENBAUM family of Cleveland, whose
family might be a missing branch on our BERKMAN tree.

The other day one of our genners mentioned the Cleveland Necrology File,
and I had a look. I found an EPSTEIN family with a FEIGENBAUM connection
as follows:

Miriam EPSTEIN FEIGENBAUM died in 1962, She was the wife of Gabriel. They
had children Nathaniel of New York and Naomi FENTON.

She was survived by 5 brothers: Beinesh and David of New York City, Joshua
of Chicago, Rabbi Ephraim EPSTEIN of St. Louis, MO and Rabbi Shlomo EPSTEIN
of Winnipeg, Canada; and one sister Shulamith EPSTEIN of Israel.

Could this be the family of Rabbi Chaim Fishel? Anyone have any knowledge
of this family.

A Happy Pesach to all!

Hi everyone. Recently I received a Jacobovits family tree (which my family
was connected to through a sister of my great-great-grandmother!!). It was
in Hebrew, so I translated it as best as I could. Below is a list of names
on the tree, some of which I had to sound out because I didn't recognize
them (the ones with a "?" beside them). If you are interested in any of
them (or anything resembling them!!), let me know, and I'll be happy to
send you what I have on them!!

Re: NYC Births/Midwives/Certificate Information #general

Joyce Weaver <joyweave@...>
 

Pamela has asked for more birth stories, so I thought I'd describe my
mother's rather puzzling birth certificate.

She was born on Dec. 12, 1902 and named Annie Fienberg [later Anne
Feinberg]. Her father is given at Simon Fienberg [but was really Samuel]
and her mother as Fanny Villner [that one's ok]. But here's the
puzzlement: the address at which she was born was 146 E. 14th St, NY, but
the parents' address is 38 Montgomery St. The person making the report
(rec'd Dec. 17) is an M. (I think) Morgan (I think) and the certificate
has a rubber-stamped address just under the Cert. Number, of the Society
of the Lying-In Hospital of the City of NY at Second Ave, bet. 17th and
18th St.

I know that the 14th St. address was a major shopping area. Even a few
years ago there was a men's and boy's clothing store there and empty
tenement apartments upstairs. My mother liked to call herself a "Chanukah
baby" so I wonder if my grandmother was uptown shopping for the holiday
when her time came. (Though I don't think Chanukah was a big deal then).
Perhaps the baby was born at a store and then they were transported to the
Lying-In Hospital. Or maybe she was visiting a tenant over the store. Who
M. Morgan was, I don't know, but I think s/he may have been affiliated
with the hospital since the stamp is next to the signature.

Most immigrants gave birth at home and used the services of mid-wives.

These women sometimes brought along a "helper," often a relative (who
might be a child or teenager) to assist. If a midwife did not speak
and/or write English well, she might have this younger helper take down
the information required on the birth-reporting form. Sometimes the
information taken down was accurate, other times a last (or maiden) nme
would be misspelled, or entered completely wrong.
The usually-busy midwife would save up several of these records for a week
or two before taking them all down to the city office where births were
officially registered, and would provide the information for several
births all on one day. Sometimes this "reporting day" became confused
with the "date of birth" on the official record.

I'd also love to hear more on this topic , including the role of the
midwife, if anyone has additional information (or anecdotes) to add.

Hi fellow Family History buffs:
I hope this is not off the track, but my sister Wylma and I have been
trying to track down our paternal grandfther, Sam Shmuel Shimon Pantzer's
brother(1865-1926), Rafal or Yankel PANTZER/PENCER/PANCER, ETC., would be
kind to enough to enlighten u He was supposed to have been connected with
the "Roite Shul" on Rivington St. early in the 1900s. This shul continued
to exist until the 1930s or later.

If anyone knowing anything, no matter how miniscule about this Shul or
Rivington Street or PANTZER/PENCER/PANCER, or Auerbach,would be kind to
enough to enlighten us, would earn our undying gratitude!

The PENCER/PANCER FAMILY had branches in Klimontow, Kelz, Lodz,
Slabuszowicz, Osarow, and Jelna Village, Rayshi Administration district
(Rzeszow),( somewhere in between Rzeszow and Prsemyzl (Pshemishl). We are

Looking for GREENSPAN: Ben, George, or Leon, or family #general

Ernest Fine <efine@...>
 

I recently found a packet of letters and other information (pay slips,
etc.) that apparently belonged to George GREENSPAN, in World War II.

His father is (was?) Leon J. GREENSPAN, of Philadelphia, PA.

One of the letters was >from a Dr. Ben GREENSPAN, at the Mayo Foundation in
Rochester, MN.

These letters (some of which contain pictures) obviously could be of
interest to Mr. Greenspan, or his descendents.

While I start tracking him down - does anybody know this family? Please
contact me privately.
