marla also writes;
My great grandfather David was born around 1848 and died at the age of 83 in Chicago in 1931.
According to my father's first cousin, he may have had another wife (but I don't know if this was before or after Minke). Minke came to the US in 1907 with her youngest children, my grandfather Moische (Melvin) and his sister Ueche (Edna eldest son, Abe, came over first and settled in the Spokane area. His name in America became TAITCH. The next son, Morris, settled in the Akron, OH areaand his name became DAITCH in the U.S. Samuel, Herman, Rose and Ed became DEUTSCHes and settled in Chicago. Herman, Samuel and my grandfather, Melvin, became dentists and all had practices in the Chicagoarea. I also know that David raised his children in a very strict, Orthodox environment.
Here is a picture of David and Minnie Deutsch (Daitch? Taitch), who emigrated to Chicago from Dunilovichi. David's place of birth was listed as Buda on the ship's manifest. On his death certificate
(filled in by his son), his father's name is listed as Jacob Deutsch.
The same son filled out Minnie's death certificate. Her birthplace is
listed as Kurinitz and her father's name as Isadore Norman.My best for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. May 2004 bring
peace and harmony to all!Regards,Marla Deutsch

I have made contact with a descedant from my Costrell/Kastrel line. I
have
found out that his grandmother was an Alpert/Alperovich as well. He
sent me
a photo from his great-grandparents anniversary. Like many Alperts,
they were in New Haven, CT.

Edward Anders is somehow related to your
family ( his Alperovitz family moved from Kurenets to Latvia at the
same time as Yehoshua and Dvora ( kastrol/Alperovitz c 1880) and lived
in the same building in Latvia) he has a family tree that goes back a long way and he was in
touch with the daughters of Joshua in Israel...
> Edward Anders (originally Alperovitch) was born in Liepaja in 1926.
His father Adolf was a grain exporter and his grandfather Israel (born in
Kurenets d. 1934) was gabbai of the main synagogue. Edward and his
mother Erika (b. Sheftelovich-Levental) survived the Holocaust by falsely
claiming that she was an Aryan foundling raised by Jewish parents, but his
father and 24 other relatives perished. Erika and Edward got to Germany in 1944
and emigrated to the US in 1949. From 1955 to 1991 Edward was Professor of
Chemistry at the University of Chicago, where he did research on
meteorites and lunar rocks (http://www.biograph.comstar.ru/bank/anders.htm). After
his retirement he urged a survivors’ organization to recover the names of
Liepaja Holocaust victims from archives in Riga, but when the
organization showed no interest, he organized and financed the project himself.
