Broida Family (Click for Family Tree)
Harold Broida was the baby of the seven surviving children of John and Sarah Gitel Frank Broida. He married but never had children, so when this article popped up while searching for John Broida in Palestine, we felt we had to post it. It is sad that he had no children to carry on his legacy, so we will do that for him here at HeritageRamblings.net.
Too bad Harold did not patent his unique way of displaying his stamp collection! In subsequent years, maps with coins, rocks, and all sorts of collectibles have made a tidy profit for their inventors.
