Fraide Ruchel/Fannie Ruth Altsztejn Family Genealogy

created with much help from cousins Alan K'necht and Wendy Silverman

 
These images are larger than they first appear. The page will be slow to load, but you can zoom in.
 

On this page you will find scans of actual Polish vital records in Polish and Russian collected and preserved by the Catholic Church, made available to us by JRI Poland and the Polish Archive, and presented in chronological order. These include the February 15, 1863 Nowy Dwor Birth record for Fannie herself as well as Fannie & Max's April 25, 1883 Marriage record! as Here is the heretofore-undisovered manifest for the Nov 16, 1889 arrival in NYC of Freide, Jacob & Scheindal Brickman. Then there is a section of various trees and tabular arrangements placing the Brockman family in the contaxt of what is known about the Altstein family. Finally, you will find an invitation to explore what is known about the larger family.

Fraide Ruchel was second cousin to Efrem, the father of my grandmother Ethel Oldstein.
