|Israel David Rosenbloom
Rosie's death certificate
Then there was the matter of their sister Rosie (Rachel Leah) Rosenbloom's death certificate. She died at twenty-three and is buried in New York (Mt. Zion Maspeth) but we have never been able to locate a death record. I had been hoping that the younger sister Shayna Liba would have supplied that information.
So here too, we are at a dead end. At least with the available resources.
I have six matches on my mitochondrial DNA - maybe something will come of that.
The eldest sister
As long as I have reviewed what I know about our Rosenblooms, let be introduce the eldest sister, Alta.
The photograph here was taken in Moscow sometime in the 1920s. We are assuming that Berl had died by then.
The son on the left is the one whose name we don't know.
The last we know of any of this family is in 1930. At that time, two of the sons were married and each had a baby girl.
One of Uncle Hymen's grandsons just told me that his grandfather had said that Israel David had "davened Lubavitch," that is, was affiliated with Habad.I had never known that.
Also please note, I will be speaking - in Hebrew - on Sunday, 10 June, 20 Sivan at 7 PM - at the Israel Genealogical Society's Giv'atayim branch, on the subject
