12721 Tombstone

5/13/2009 This is the Tombstone Of Eva Grinberg Schwartz. She was the daughter Of Yosef Grinberg. Yosef Grinberg was the son of Chaim and Perel and was born in Herta Dorohoi about 1886. Yosef died in the shoah and the daughter Eva years later in 1976 submitted a POT on his behalf in 1976. Eva was living in Israel then and died there in 1997. I am trying to connect her and her father to my Greenberg line. My GG Abraham Adolph Greenberg was born about 1883 in Herta Dorohoi and shared the same parents, so I believe both Yosef and abraham to be siblings. I am interested in any family information on Yosef and his daughter Eva. View the post with its 9 responses
