Broida Family (Click for Family Tree)

Samuel Charles Broida was born on 30 March 1879  in Vilna, Lithuania/ Russia, to Morris Karklinsky (?-1893) and Leah Berman Karklinsky (1842-1917). He arrived in the United States somewhere between 1891-1897 per his census records.

Isabel “Bella” Friedberg was born in Russia to unknown parents in June, 1881. Her arrival date in the US varies from 1890-1892 per the censuses.

On 10 Nov 1903, Isabel “Bella” Friedberg and Samuel Charles Broida filed for a marriage license in Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania, which they both also listed as their current residence. Belle did not know the day of the month she was born on when they filled out the paperwork.(Or maybe she was too excited to be able to remember? People did not celebrate birthdays in such a big way back then.)  They were married the next day, on 11 Nov 1903.

Bella and Samuel had 5 children- 2 girls, 3 boys, born from 1905-1921.

By the 1920 census the family had moved to Burgettstown, Washington Co., Pennsylvania, where Samuel worked as a merchant in dry goods. By 1930 they were back in Pittsburgh, with Samuel listed in the US Federal Census as a proprietor of a drugstore.

  1. Here’s some info I had on him:
    His Naturalization petition shows a birth date of May 28, 1879
    HIs WWI Draft card shows March 30 1877

    He appears in the Pittsburgh City directory for the first time in 1909 at the same address as is indicated in the 1910 census.
    In 1909 his occupation is listed as notions
    In 1910 it is dry goods
    In 1912 it is salesman

    Sympathies for his death are mentioned in the Nov 1958 issue of the Pittsburgh Jewish Criterion
