Thanks for responding, Anne. What I think we have is a lot of coincidences in names. However, I don't think there is a connection since in my family, Max Schneider was Esther Schwartz Schneider's father-in-law.Esther was my grandmother. We also have a Leo, Irving and Solomon in common, but they are brothers on the Schneider side, not Schwartz like yours.
The names I'm researching are SCHNEIDER,SCHWARTZ,MEYER,BLITZER/PLATZERMAN,KARPET,HABERMAN. Much luck in your research. Shari
