The brother of my grandfather, named Salomon Israel Halpern, was Leon Halpern. They came to Brazil in 1330/32, carring theyre father two years after; they lost one other brother in Poland - cities Wroclav or Liew or LVOV, depending of language; there is now Ukranian territory, but were russian and Poland according to time. One of Leon´s Halpern daughter is named Miriam Halpern; should be only a coincidence, but there are parents that went to States in earlier 1900´s. Leon´s wife, Augusta, 90 years is still alive here in Sao Paulo. We are about 30 descendants here.
