Re: Farb/Lerner


Any Podhajcers related to any of my relatives? All born in Podhajce. My grandparents moved to Hicksville, LI, NY.

My grandfather was Jakob Kellner (mothers maiden name, Kahn, first wife's: Feuerstein) 1875-1950. He had three sisters, possibly in Ohio? Occupation: harness-maker and upholstry repairman. Probably born in nearby Sokolov.

My grandma was Charna (Cecilia) Zitron/Citron. 1902-1966.

Susan—I don’t know if I ever
told you this story.  Your g-grandmother,
Feiga Lerner Farb was a good friend of my Grandmother, Sarah
Zinn.   As you know, they both came to Galveston, Texas
when they
immigrated to the U.S.   When my sister was a young girl,
she put
ketchup on everything served at a meal, and it always upset
grandmother.  So one day, Feiga took the bottle of ketchup
home with her
and told my sister that she would make her a ketchup cake. 
Somehow, that
cake never got made, but the ketchup habit got broken.  Not
an important
story, but connections are always interesting.

I'd list my Farb/Lerner
family.  My gg-grandfather was Avrum Farb, married to
Dwora.  His son,
Aaron, came to Galveston, TX.  Later, my g-grandmother,
Feiga Lerner came
to marry him.  Thank you again, Jean Rosenbaum, for helping
me find her
Ellis Island record.
