1. Leibish/Louis Mordecai ALTER and his first wife Sarah MEISEL by whom he had five children.

2. Leibish/Louis Mordecai ALTER and his second wife Freida "Fanny" DRUKARSH by whom he had seven children.

Louis arrived at New York via Ellis Island, in August 1905. He was about 24. There are variations of his place of birth as Lvov, Lagov, Lukow in Poland, often shown as Poland/Russia. His departure to North America was from Trieste, Italy, one of the ports commonly used for passage.

He married the following year to Sarah Miesel. After Sarah's death in Apr 1921, Louis remarried that July to Freida (Fanny) Drukarsh, who had immigrated to Toronto in Dec 1920. Louis died in Aug 1944. Fanny lived to see nine grandchildren born before her death in Jul 1956.


This tree is built from roots found in the "journal" kept by my late Uncle and sent to me by a cousin about 2007, as the most unexpected birthday present ever.  Plus relatives who have shared some of their family history. Added to this foundation are many families found via online sources such as JewishGen, Geni and many other sources. However, YOU can play a vital role by filling in missing information for many "Female/Male UNKNOWN" people, birth and death dates or other vital information.


Ontario access for vital records is 104 years after birth, 76 years after death and 82 years after marriage. Should you find a person's record displayed in error, please contact the Site Admin. Visitors may view deceased people (>105 years) without a user account. To view living or recently deceased people requires an account, available only to authenticated relatives.
