From: Allison White <firstname.lastname@example.org> at INTERNET TO: Moishe Miller Subject: Re: Langsam Family Priority: Normal Date: 7/24/98 5:58 AM ------------------------------- Message Contents ------------------------------- Moishe, Hi, Don't have much information on the Langsam family. Esther Langsam married my great grandfather Samual Jacobs. Esther was born March 16, 1870 in Austria. Her father's name (from death cert) is Schiea Langsam, and mother is Riva Chaia (I hope I've spelled them right). Esther is buried in Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, NY (Long Island). She is the only Langsam in my tree as she married into the Jacobs family. You can see my family tree at: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Hills/3293/ . At the time of her death, she lived at 1002 Foster Ave, Brooklyn, NY. Prior to that at 1283 Ocean Ave., Brooklyn, NY. That's all I have. Maybe it will help. Let me know.

Hi, My cousin says she does not know what Esther's father's name was. But, it is possible that her father's name was Isaac, because two of Esther's sons (Irving - Ruby's husband and Abe) middle name is Isaac. She suggested that I ask my Uncle (Esther's grandson) since he is just about the oldest now. I will email his daughter and find out. This may take a while, but I will let you know what happens. I'm saving your email address and phone numbers in my address book. Have you looked at the death cert? Is your Esther's husbands name Samual? If so, we may have a connection here. Good luck!!

Nice to find someone out there who is related some how! How old are you? I'll be 48 in June. The last place I lived in Brooklyn was on E. 29th St. between Kings Highway and Ave. P. I went to James Madison HS. My dad is Stanton White (Rose's son); don't know if you know the name. Below I've tried to answer as good as possible your questions. Hope it helps you. Yes, the Esther listed is wife of Samuel, with daughter-in-law Ruby. *Ruby was married to Irving. Irving is buried in Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, NY (Long Island). There is a Jacobs/White plot (big section near the front entrance). Esther's daughter Rose (Jacobs) White (my grandmother) is buried there (on the White side). Esther & Samual are buried there (on the Jacobs side), along with their son Abe, his wife Molly, and their son Mitchell (who died young); Esther and Samual's daugther Leah (Jacobs) and her husband Simon Lieberman are also buried there. I think they made a mistake although it won't be the first time I saw a death certificate with the wrong data. *Well, his name could have been changed at Ellis Island, or translated to Issac. If you are contacting this uncle, the other important question to ask is WHAT OTHER LANGSAM'S DO YOU KNOW? Any of Esther's sibling's names or their children? Then we can really put this tree where it belongs. *Do you know any of Esther's siblings? Also, from where in Europe were they? *The 1920 census says Samual and Esther came from Austria. Funny, it also says they spoke Polish! Do you have their marriage record? Were they married in the USA? Her death record implies she came here when she was 24. Did she already have kids? *I don't have a marriage record, but they were married in Austria (or wherever). My Grandmother Rose was born in Austria along with her sister Gussie. The rest of the four children were born in the US. According to the 1920 census, they came to the US in 1899. Also, it says she was naturalized. Do you have the records pertaining to that? If not, would you like me to try and get that for you from the NARA here or Brooklyn Supreme Court? If so, do you know where they lived before 1002 Foster Ave (which is right near me). *Also according to the 1920 census, it says they (Samual, Esther, and Gussie) were naturalized in 1905. Women were naturalized when the husband/father was. By 1920, Rose (my grandmother) was married and had two children (my uncle and my dad), and living in Wisconsin. Also according to the 1920 census, their address was 670 (?) Rockaway Ave, Kings County. I do not have the naturalization papers. Haven't been able to find them yet. I would send a scanned copy of the census, but it is very dark and hard to read. I am attaching copys of photos I took at the cemetery; have others, will send tomorrow. Happy researching... will be in touch.

In her email to you, she said she remembered names like Willy, Phil, and Nat. I see that they are sons of David. She also said that maybe they were cousins to Esther. So either they were cousins or she was their aunt. Have to do more research. I have a GEDCOM file that I will send you in the next few days. My computer is having "a snit", and I have been working on it. I know that my Family Treemaker file is still there, just not sure if it will fit on a disk; may have to zip it to get it to another computer.

Subject: Esther Langsam Date: Thu, 24 Jun 2004 17:04:26 -0400 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Cc: email@example.com Samuel Jacobs’ father is Avraham Yitzchok (Abraham Isaac). Samuel’s Hebrew name is Shabbatai. I can’t quite make out Simon Lieberman’s Hebrew name, I’m going to ask someone else about it. Also, I had another child…there’s Julia Rachel (Yael Rina), and now Hannah Mia (Chana Malka). Also, there’s a third on its way. It should be here in a month. Howard Sklar Moishe…where does Esther and Yeshaya fit in on your site? Are they descendants of Pesach Langsam? Through which of his children? Are you still in Flatbush? My family is in Woodmere.

You can review that data at http://www.ics.uci.edu/~dan/genealogy/Miller/langsam/saul.htm I am still in Flatbush and am still trying to "attach" your branch to the main tree. Any resources you can direct me to or supply that might help would be most welcome. Are you aware of any other LANGSAM cousins that Esther Jacobs may have told some of your family about? -Moishe ____________________________________________________________ From: "Sklar, Howard M." Subject: RE: Esther Langsam Date: Fri, 25 Jun 2004 13:49:22 -0400 To: email@example.com Not a one, unfortunately. Everyone in my parents' family was niftar before I was born. I only knew one grandparent, and that was on my father's side. What I know of my mother's family comes from Ally. Good Shabbos. Howard ___________________________________________________________ From: "Suzan & Ron Wynne" Subject: H9 Additions Date: Sat, 17 Jul 2004 16:34:04 -0400 To: "Miller Moishe" Moishe, As I was organizing my Israel notes and integrating material, I realized that I never sent you the additional information I developed on a possible link to H9. The issue at hand was how Esther Jacobs (of Ruby and Allison White fame) fits in. Before I left for Israel, I was playing around with various Jewish sites and found cemetery records for Beth David in Queens. Ruby Jacobs thought that Esther was the daughter of Isaac and Gittel but she was the daughter of Abraham Langsam. Esther did marry Samuel Jacobs and they had a bunch of children as your correspondence with Allison White indicated. I have no quarrel with the tree as she provided it except that Esther was a daughter of Abraham. Esther was born 3/1/1870 which would place Abraham with a birthdate at least 20 years before. Either the stone and cemetery records are incorrect and she really was a daughter to Isaac and Gittel in H9 or she belongs elsewhere. Suzan ____________________________________________________________ From: To: "Suzan & Ron Wynne" Sent: Monday, July 19, 2004 10:13 AM Subject: Re: H9 Additions Hi, Welcome back!!! I missed you; I have been hard at work trying to coallate all my various notes, emails and additins to FTM into a document I can send you, similar to the one you sent to me on the H sections. I think this will stil take me some time, so please be patient. Regarding H9, please clarify what you mean by "Ruby Jacobs thought that Esther was the daughter of Isaac and Gittel but she was the daughter of Abraham Langsam" Which ABRAHAM LANGSAM do you mean??? I have my own pet theory - Esther Jacobs was a sister to Isaac, not a daughter. Furthermore, I think that H9 and H8 connect via the Schia reference on Esther's death certifiacte (see it at: http://www.ics.uci.edu/~dan/genealogy/Miller/pic/pcertejc.jpg) Please share your thoughts and comments! :) Moishe ___________________________________________________________ From: "Suzan & Ron Wynne" Subject: Re: H9 Additions Date: Mon, 19 Jul 2004 11:54:31 -0400 To: Now that IS interesting. The cemetery record has her father as Abraham. If the death record is correct, and I have no reason to suspect that it is not, then the task is to figure out who Schaya and Riva Chaia are. Yours is an interesting theory. For now, as I have counseled before, I think she ought to be treated separately. We may never be able to solve this little mystery.
