Searching for Spector Families #usa #ukraine


WALTER SPECTOR
 

Hi Genners,

I am searching the Spector family from Zaslav Russia (Ukraine). Some Spectors settled in Woodbine NJ and then went to Philadelphia. Other Spector families settled in the Boston, Haverhill and Chelsea areas in Massachusetts. My brick wall is the connection between the two Spector families. There are a number of individuals with the same given names.

In addition, there is a connection between the Spector and Greenstein families from the same locations. There were marriages bewteen the Spectors and Greensteins. My ggrandfather was a Spector and my ggrandmother was a Greenstein. My great uncle married a Greenstein Haverhill, Mass. His cousin married a sister from the same family.

Any help or conversation would be greatly appreciated.

I was able to reconnect two branches of the family I’m working on with 1920 census data, where the pioneering brothers were still living in the same household in Philadelphia.  One brother immigrated in 1903; the other followed ten years later.  I have not able to find the earlier arrival in the 1910 census.

 

Another member of this forum was able to find brother #2’s immigration record for me.  Census records only show the country of birth, however the immigration record also showed the town they came from, as a mangled but still recognizable transliteration.

Hi Walter,

I know there are Spectors in my mother's family that came from Zaslav/Izaslav. I knew of a Sherman David Spector that my mother had corresponded with. He was born in Massachussetts, was a Professor of History at Russell Sage College, and died in 2008. He has 3 children, at one point I had tried to make contact with them, but never got any response. Sherman's mother was Annie Silverman Spector (my grandfather's niece), but at present I don't have further info on her husband. Happy to explore further, as I'm always looking for a ny information on Zaslav (Izaslav, Izyaslav))

Hi,

I have several matches on both Ancestry and FTDNA with the last names Spector and Landau. They appear to be 4th cousins so I don’t know where the connection is to me. They do appear to be on my father’s side.

i do have a friend whose last name is Spector and the guy who cleaned our carpets is a Landau. He’s from Israel. I don’t believe that either one has had their DNA done.

if you find out any more info I’d love to hear about it.
