I am seeking information my great-great uncle Moses Freedland(er) of
1637 50th Street, Brooklyn, NY, son of Hirsch Friedland(er) of Besaglo,
Latvia. The census lists his occupation as salesman but his nephew, my
grandfather David Freedland, told me he was a Rabbi as did my mother
Cecelia Rosenberg. My mother visited them often and told me all the
children - more than 13? -were musical and that each one played an
instrument. She also told me their house had only one bathroom and they
had a schedule for using it!
