Treasure Chest Thursday: Feiga Garber and Max Buchman Marriage Certificate

Feiga or Feigela (as Fannie was lovingly called within the family) was my grandfather Jack's youngest sister. And, because the Garbers did not have many family get-togethers, Feigela, who in later life resided with her eldest daughter Anita not very far from where my family lived, was the only sibling of my grandfather with whom I was familiar. She and her brother Eddie were the youngest of my grandfather's siblings and the last to immigrate from Labun

Feiga's mother Chane Mazewitsky Garber died in Labun and never set foot in the United States. As often happens, however, Feiga in this record, gave her late mother the Americanized surname that had been adopted by her mother's brother, Isidore Morris.

Rabbi Yaer Lerner had been Rabbi in Labun. He continued ministering to some of his congregation once he immigrated.

Witness Louis Myers was a relation by Isidore Morris' marriage. He was Isidore's brother-in-law (Isidore's wife Sarah's brother). He was actually not related to Feiga, but was also from Labun.
