An American Family History

ItzigYarmark and Frimet Neger

Galicia, Austria/Poland
Brooklyn, New York

Galicia is in east central Europe between Poland and the Ukraine. In 1815, the Congress of Vienna ceded Galacia to Austria. From 1873, Galicia was an autonomous province of Austria-Hungary with Polish, Ukrainian and Ruthenin as official languages. From the 1880s to the World War I, a mass emigration from Galacia occurred.

Isidore (Itzig) Yarmark and Fanny (Frimet) Neger were married in Austria, near Vienna. The family was from eastern Galicia on the San River in the Lwow district.

Their children were born there. Goldie Yarmark Glaser was born about 1860. Menasheh (Max) Jarmark was born in 1866, Abraham Jarmark was born in 1869. Harry Jarmark was born in 1875. Hannah Yarmark Ringler, was born about 1876. Yetta Yarmark Morrison was born about 1881. Their children were enumerated in Itzig's probate petition.

Most of the family immigrated to the United States in 1893. Hannah came later.

In 1900, they lived on Willet Street in Brooklyn. At that time, the head of household was Isidore Yarmark who was a 58 year old presser and gave his date of birth as May, 1852. Fannie was 53 and born in May, 1847. Abraham was a cloak operator and was age 27 and born in June 1872. Henreyetta was 14 and born August 1885.

The household also included David Abraham who was 5 and born in May, 1895 in New York. He was identified as their son, but Fannie had given birth to 6 children who were all alive and he would be number 7. Neither Isadore or Fanny could read, write or speak English. They immigrated in 1891 and Abraham immigrated in 1890 and Yetta immigrated in 1892.

In 1915 they lived at 1666 Prospect Avenue in Brooklyn. Isidore died in 1915. After his death, Fanny lived with her son Harry and his family on Prospect Avenue. Fanny died in 1917.

Between 1880 and World War I about 2,000,000 Yiddish-speaking, Ashkenazi Jews immigrated from Eastern Europe to the United States.
