This Jacob and Ceila both born abt 1903 in NY have a son Alvin S. Census indicates Jacobs parents were born in Russia and Celia's in Austria.

There is more than one Jacob b. abt 1903 - with parents from Russia in earlier census data. Maybe you will recognize some of there siblings - your great aunts and uncles - and figure out which family?

If you are looking for another Gershon (Jacob) Raskin family tree, I have one with Jacob and Bessie (Baile) Etkin Raskin, who have a son, Alvin, and siblings Nathan, Murray, Mary, and Louis.  LMK if this is the family you are looking for!
