My grandfather’s family lived in Szczebresczyn. My great grandfather, Chaim Bronfenbrener, immigrated to the U.S. in 1910. One great aunt, Gitle Bronfenbrener, immigrated in 1911, when she was 16 and her sister, Ruchel in 1913. The rest of the family, Avram, Chana, Szajndla, and Tasna left with their mother, Feige Waldman Bronfenbrener, a few months after Ruchla. I have all those records with the exception of Tasna, who says that she was born in Warsaw, on her U.S. naturalization papers. I would like to confirm that, and, if the family moved to Warsaw before emigrating, it might help my quest. There was a son, Mosze Bronfenbrener, born in Szc. in 1901. After his father left Poland, he was sent to live with an uncle so that he would have a male role model. We do not know who that uncle was nor where he lived. Some time between 1910 and 1913 Mosze is killed by a gang. I am looking for the site of his burial, understanding that many of the tombstones have been destroyed, so that I can fulfill a promise to my father and uncle, who have both passed, to say a prayer at the site. His mother’s family (Waldman) were from Frampol. The Bronfenbreners were from Scz. Chaim’s mother and father were most likely Mosze and Mollie (Anglicized) and Feige’s parents were, we believe, Gersko Pinkwas Waldman and Gena Etla Brezel. I am visiting Poland in June 2022, and I greatly appreciate any help with this quest.
