12/16/2009 By looking at the style of clothing can someone date this picture? Are the children both boys? Esther's sons were born in New York in Dec 1895, Aug 1897 and Oct 1902. The boy born in 1897 died in Jul 1898 age 11 months. These children don't look that many years apart in age to be the first and last. Both look older than 11 months.

14113 Do you recognize?

12/13/2009 This is the family of my great grandmother, Rachel (Rivka Ruchel) Ginszburg. She was married to Szebzel (Shevti) Ginzburg who passed away in 1920. Rachel was living up until the time of the Holocaust. Our family does not know anything about the Galperin family. I am assuming the family surname based on the family surname on the headstone in this photo. I am looking for descendants of this family. View the post, there are no responses

Rachel was living up until the time of the Holocaust. Our family does not know anything about the Galperin / Halperin family. I believe the family surname may be Galperin based on a cemetery headstone in another photo.
