Seeking information about WEISFELD family members who were jewelers from Berdichev #ukraine


My grandfather, Moishe Weisfeld, was a jeweler from Berdichev who emigrated to New York around 1907. Was there a particular district in Berdichev during the 1890s-1910s where jewelers resided? I can't find anything about my grandfather or his family except a document that states his father was Josel and mother was Fannie.  Any information or leads would be most welcome!

Hi Lois,

Further on the info that Paul found.

The person that Mosjche WEISSFELD was going to in Boston was probably Jacob SOLLOGUB.  Jacob lived at 865 Harrison in Boston.  Jacob's father was Aaron, and according to a tree on Ancestry the SOLLOGUB family was from Berdichev.

Good luck in your search,
