Steve Morgan <morgansr@...> has problems in researching
his grandfather, Harry SPREI, and his parents, who seem to have
floated confusingly between Galicia, England and the United States.
He found a marriage between Max Sprei and Rachel Heim, who may have
been his great-grandparents, in Whitechapel, London in 1901.

I confirmed this marriage on the FreeBMD site
(the other marriage on the page was between Israel Kurchinsky and
Miriam Goldfarb - which might help someone :-)

With an uncommon name like Sprei, I checked births and there is
a birth in the June Quarter of 1902
Eve Sprei, Mile End Old Town 1c 444b

This looks like the Eva who landed with Regina (or Ruchel) in New York
in 1902. Mile End Old Town (sometimes shortened to MEOT) is immediately
east of Whitechapel.

I would order one or both of these certificates >from England to see
what information they have.
Also Max Sprei should be listed on the 1901 English census which was
enumerated after his marriage.
