|About The Blumstein Family
This Website is devoted to the Ancestors and Descendants of Nathan Blumstein and his wife Esther Vishnick. Nathan and Esther were both born in the Polish area of Russia about 1874, lived in England around 1900, and immigrated to California by 1906.
If you do not recognize any names here, or your surname is similar to but slightly different from Vishnick, we recommend you visit our Vishnick, Wishnick, and related surnames project page, sometimes called "Our Family Name Means Cherry Brandy", at http://freepages.rootsweb. com/~thecohens/family/brandysurnames. html.
For more information about our Blumstein family history, you can check out the Blumstein Family Page at http: //freepages.rootsweb. com/~thecohens/family/blumstein.html.
Our expanded family tree also has information about Esther Vishnick's extended family. You can read about the Vishnick, Barusch, and related families at http://freepages.rootsweb. com/~thecohens/family/vishnick.html and at http: //freepages.rootsweb. com/~thecohens/family/mvishnick.html.
To get acquainted with this Family Tree site, I recommend starting with the Name Index. You can either click on this link, or get there by going to the Home page here and clicking on "Name Index". That will give you a list of the deceased relatives in the family tree, along with the names of their parents and spouses. If you want more information about a specific individual on the list, click on their name, and that will take you to a page showing their parents, spouse(s), and children.
Then, if you think we may be related, or have information you wish to see added or corrected, please do Contact us through this site, or via our Contact page at RootsWeb (url is above).
Sources are currently listed in the comments section on each individual. "ssdi" means Social Security Death Index, "cbi" means California Birth Index, and "cdi" means California Death Index. If you need help deciphering my other abbreviations, please contact me.
Please note that on some occasions, the place of death given in a State Death Index differs from the address where last benefits were sent, as shown in the Social Security Death Index. In the absence of a State Death Index listing, the SSDI information has been used here, but the State Death Index records should be a more definitive source of actual place of death, as they are generally filed with the health department by the mortuaries.
Then, while the reports here are much nicer than at the other sites where we have our Vishnicks and extended family in online family trees, TribalPages is a bit more difficult to update and add transcriptions to, so you may wish to also visit our Feldberg Family Tree at Rootsweb and our most up to date trees at http://thecohens.theunixplace.com/trees/vishnick/.
