Every family has a story.

Every family has a story. Part of the history of my family is in Singapore where my great grandfather and his family built an incredible life. This week my mother sent me a link to an article written this month highlighting this life, that tells a great story and includes some incredible pictures of their life, my family, my great grandmother receiving the MBE, and oh yeah, them all hanging out with Albert Einstein.

  1. Very interesting, especially the Asian Jewish Life article. Frankel Estate remains today, as a residential neighbourhood in the larger Siglap area. And I live right across from Meyer Road, didn’t know that was a Jewish surname at all. Thanks for the link!

  2. Hi cousin Josh! I have been trying to reach you and Gaby. I have found astonishing film footage of our family in Singapore circa 1931 on the Siglap estate. Lionel was 20 at the time of the film and most probably away at college. His brothers are not in the film, but his sisters are (including my grandmother) and his large extended family. May I have the email addresses you would like me to send the link? I only came across this posting by chance this morning. Thanks so much. Best, Lisa — ginsburg10@gmail.com
