Tombstone Tuesday: Herman Max Feinstein (1886-1963)

My great grandfather, Herman Max Feinstein, was born in Poland, in 1886, the son of Selig and Annie (Perlik) Dudelsack. Upon their arrival in the United States the family changed their surname to Feinstein. The date of birth on his tombstone matches that of his WWI draft registration in 1917, and his Social Security Application in 1936.

He married Anna Blatt on May 26, 1912 in St. Louis, Missouri.

He and Anna are buried in the Newmark-Feinstein plot at United Hebrew Cemetery.

Thanks for sharing. Those name changes are always interesting, but also a challenge. I appreciate the link back to the posting on the wife, as well.

Keep those ancestor stories coming!
