1890's-early1900's "MEMORANDA": A PERSONAL BOOK OF NAMES (#2)





A friend of mine’s great grandfather (my friend is about 68) kept a notebook of insurance sales and rentals, among other things. The book probably dates from the late 1890’s-early 1900’s, based on three dates (1899, 1900, & 1902) appearing in the information towards the end of the book.
Last names and addresses are listed, covering New York City, Brooklyn, and New Jersey. The following information is based on handwritten data found in the notebook, “Memoranda”. (The spelling of names is as written). I believe the addresses are both residential and commercial.

My thanks to Dr. J.Z. for so generously sharing his family’s treasure trove.

Below is a partial list of names & addresses of individuals who may have been Jewish. 
(Sorry that the names & addresses don't quite line up. The original was done in Excel but Blogger managed to distort the table. I can't/don't know how to transfer something from Excel that will keep the grid lines intact.)
