Ancestor's Name: Mordche, Pfefer
Posting date: 04/10/2005
Description: Greetings, I have been researching my family ancestry and learned that my paternal great-grandfather was from Bendery. I was hopeful there might possibly be some information dating back to the late 1800's regarding births or marriages. The manifests from Ellis Island indicate that he and his family entered the U.S. on June 6, 1911. Their home was Lemberg, Galicia - however, their place of birth was listed as Bendery. Here are the names and ages in 1911: Mordche Pfefer - 32 Ettel Pfefer - 42 Josif Pfefer - 9 ...igder Pfefer - 6 Boruch Pfefer - 3 Abram Pfefer - 2 We are very interested to learn more about our family, especially the unique spelling of the name PFEFER, which we have seen very few similar spellings. The name PFEFFER seems to be much more prevalent. Anything you might be able to provide to us would be greatly appreciated.
