Hi, I just stumbled across this list...
I'm doing some research on my grandfather Sam (Shimon Nachum)
Hochstein (b 1888, Radishkovich near Minsk, migrated to Bayone New
Jersey, circa 1905 with his father Yosef Hochstein, d. New York City
Sam's father was Yosef Hochstein, a carpenter by trade, from
Radishkovich, and Sam's grandfather was "Yitzhak the Melamed",
apparently a cheder teacher in Rad.
Sam's mother "Rashe Gittel" left Rad. for Bayone a few years after
Are any of these names known to you or others? I'm primarily
interested in the names and dates of birth of Yosef Hochstein and his
wife Rashe Gittel, and their four parents (one of whom was "Yitzchak
the Melamed") or any other info about them.
Any suggestions for research appreciated. If anyone knows a Hochstein
with origins in Rad. for example, this might be a start.
