Hi Erica: I think we might be second cousins if you are the daughter of either Sidney Lapidus or Arnold Lapidus, whose fathers were Benjamin Lapidus and Kaufman Lapidus respectively.
I am the daughter of Israel Lapidus, brother of Ben & Kivie.
I've been searching for when our common ancestor Hyman Lapidus came to the US.
I know he left Belarussia sometime in the early 1900's probably as a very young man to escape the military. I think the town was Borisov. Hyman died in July 0f 1959 and is buried at Mt Carmel Cemetery in Queens.
Erica, if this rings a bell, e-mail me at popscar@aol.com
Most sincerely, Barbara (Lapidus) Fischbach
