From an email from PETRY1 AT

I do not believe I am related to the Shapiro family, but I have pictures of a Shapiro from the very late 1800's and very early 1900's.  I would like to return to the Shapiro descendents for their family history.  I inherited these pictures from my Great Aunt Mary Kornstein Prager who lived in Cincinnati and had immigrated from Odobesti Romania.  I am unsure if this Shapiro family is from Romania, I can only assume, since my Great Aunt and Great Uncle (Jake) were from Romania.

Below is the family names and dates that I know of:

Sonny or Sol Shapiro born in 1865, immigrated in 1903
Sophia born in 1872 immigrated in 1905
Mike/Moshe born in 1890
Jake/Jacob born in 1893
Bertha born 1896
Leon born in 1899
Bernard born in 1901
