I hope that someone has information on my paternal grandmother's family.We are searching for ancestors and descendants of Israel FEINSTEIN (sometimes listed as FINESTONE).The son of Samuel FEINSTEIN, he was born in Zhitomir, Ukraine in 1839/40 and was married to Bella (Blume) ALEXANDER or BERNSTEIN. He had a sister-in-law named Leah.
Israel and Blume emigrated to Chelsea MA in 1901.All nine of their children had preceded them to Chelsea: Abraham changed his name to GORDON and married Dora (Dvera)ROSENFIELD. Nathan changed his name to FINESTONE and married Bessie FINKEL. Simon (Shimon) changed his name to STARR and married Bessie GINSBERG. Sophie (Shiva) married John ALBERT. Clara married Alexander ROSENFIELD.These were my grandparents. Sonya (Shininda) married Jacob FINGOLD. Harry changed his name to FINESTONE and married Fannie SCHULTZ. Elizabeth (Leah) never married.
