|I created this tree based upon information furnished me by both my father, Sidney Field, and his sister, Flora Friedman.My wife, Phyllis Shapiro Field, already had a tree developed by Wendy Ehrman of the Zemon, Shapiro families, which I subsequently incorporated here. |
I would like to trace our families history back to the old country.
On my father's side, my grandfather, Leon Finkelfield, was born in Minsk, Russia August 30, 1860 and died February 2, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois.He is believed to have come to the United States in 1881.He subsequently married my grandmother, Bertha Marks, who was born in Pittsburgh, PA, on November 16, 1863 and died May 12, 1929 in Chicago, Illinois.Her parents came from Germany. I recently found out that the Marks came from Hesse Darmstate (formerly Prussia), which is Germany today.
On my mother's side, my grandfather, William Hyman, was born in Poland approximately 1868 and died in 1943 in Chicago, Illinois.He married Sarah Janowitz, born in Poland, and died in 1927 in Chicago, Illinois.
