Re: Irving DoktorDear Luba,
A cousin of my husband's was married to Irving Doktor (Israel Doktorovich), so I don't know much about his family. However earlier this year I was contacted by a man named Howard Garrison. His great-grandmother was a Dubinsky and I was able to help him discover that he too is related to the Doktorovich family and perhaps to your friend also. Do you know if the sister's name was Chayke? And do you know if Peter's father was Yehoshua/Joshua? If it is ok with you, can I share your message and email address with Howard? I think he may be able to help you better than I can.
Look forward to hearing from you,
Luba and Ludmila:
The Dubinskaya grandmother who came to the US with Ida (Chaika), Avrum (Abraham), and Israel (Irving) Doktorovich was my maternal grandfather’s maternal grandmother. On some records she is called Rachel, others call her Ruchlia, and on some she is called Rose.
I am related to the Doktorovich family through Rachel Dubinskaya. Her papers, however, state that she was from Uman, while the Doktorvich papers state that they were from Golta (Pervomaisk).
Ida and Morris Cohen had two daughters. My mother and one daughter, Raye Epstein, are still in contact. I actually spoke with Raye Epstein a few hours before I received your message. I believe that Raye Epstein is the only surviving Doktorovich in the United States.
Abraham Doktorovich never married. Irving Doktor did marry, as you have learned from Sheryl Levin. He had one daughter, Denise Lynn Doktor, but she died in 1972 when she was only 21 years old.
Do you know anything about the Dubinsky family? In addition to the daughter Fruma who married Yehoshua Doktorovich, there were two brothers (Moishe and Peisia) and two daughters (Anna and Goldie). Goldie was my great grandmother. She married a man named Sam Stalaroff.
Do you and any information about Goldie and Sam Stalaroff (or Stalarow)?
