Family pictures

While I am waiting to receive further documentation for my genealogy research, I thought I would share some more of the photographs that I received from my cousin Robin and also some that my cousin Jody sent me last week.  These are almost all pictures I’d never seen before and that I found very touching.  Today I want to post some new (to me) photographs of my grandparents, Gussie Brotman and Isadore Goldschlager.

I would love to know more about this photograph.  My grandfather is the young (and short) man standing in the center of the rear row in this picture, but I have no idea who these other young people are or where or when this picture was taken.  Isadore looks like a teenager, but could be in his early 20s, so perhaps this was in Iasi, perhaps in New York City.  Since he was 16 when he came to New York, my guess is that this is in New York City.  But who are these people? Could any of them be his Strolowitz/Adler cousins? Or Nathan Mintz? I don’t see anyone who could be Betty or David.  Maybe these are just his friends.  I wish I knew.

Here are two more of my grandfather, one alone and one with my grandmother:

And here are several of my grandmother with her grandchildren.  The first one is of her holding Jeffrey, her first grandchild.  I don’t think I have ever seen a photograph of her looking so happy.

The remaining photographs are pictures of my grandmother with her West Hartford grandchildren:

Thank you to Robin and to Jody for sharing these.  More to come in the days ahead.
