The Geringer Family Circle by James Gross

Date: Fri, 17 Feb 1995 From: On 6/21/1946, a certificate of incorporation was filed in the state of NY by attorney Herman B. GERRINGER. Herman Gerringer listed his office as 521 Fifth Ave, NYC. My research has shown that Herman was the SON of Harry Gerringer. Harry Gerringer sailed from Antwerp to NY on the SS Friezland in 1899. He listed his country of origin as Zalescikia, Austria. As of 1909, Harry Gerringer resided at 351 West 119Th Street and was a tailor. He was married to Bertha Goldberg and had a son "Herman the attorney" on 2/1908. Harry Gerringer's tailor shop, called Geringer Brothers, was located at 457 Manhattan Ave. His brother Isaac Geringer, worked there too. Isaac Geringer resided at 392 Manhattan Ave as of 1909. Isaac was married to Annie Shankin and had 2 sons, Herman born 7/1902 and Samuel,born 2/1908. Isaac Geringer had sailed from Hamburg, Germany to NY via Phila, arriving on 8/1896. He had stated his country of origin as Zalescikia, Austria. Harry Geringer resided at 394 Manhattan Ave as of 1911 and his brother Isaac Geringer resided at 392 Manhattan Ave. As of 1919, the tailor shop at 457 Manhattan Ave was moved next door to 459 Manhattan Ave. Isaac Geringer opened up a second tailor shop at Harry Geringer's residence of 351 West 119TH Street and moved in as well. Harry changed his residence, moving to 494 Manhattan Ave, NYC. Harry Geringer's cousin, Morris Geringer,joined the tailor shop as of 1919. He listed his residence as 210 6TH street,NYC. Isidore Geringer, another cousin, also joined the shop. His residence was listed as 223 6TH Street ,NYC as of 1919. As a separate note, my great uncle, Gedale Geringer, came to the US in 9/1900. He had sailed on the SS Friezland, from Antwerp to NY. His stated country of origin was Zalescikia, Austria. Gedale's family had been metalsmiths in Austria. He opened up an iron works company known as the "Central Sheet Metal Works". The Central Sheet Metal Works was incorporated on 10/1907 and was listed at 300 East 59TH Street, NYC. Gedale, listed as Jacob in the phonebook, resided at 334 East 47TH Street.He was married to Fanny Rosenthal. His partner, Kalman Grossman, resided at 1077 1St Ave. Gedale moved to 889 1ST Ave as of 1909. He had a son Meyer on 5/1910 and a daughter Sylvia on 3/1913. Gedale moved to 10 Mitchel Place as of 1919. Gedale moved to 1862 Andrews Ave as of 1933.
Among my fringe lines I have a distant relative, Isser Geringer from Zalescikia, Austria. Isser Geringer was born in Zalescikia, Austria and emigrated to the US in 1902. He was married to Anna aka Chane (Grashilschik/Krasilskchir) Geringer from Horodischre, Russia. I am not researching Anna. Isser and Anna resided at 1463 Hoe St, NYC in 1917-1920, and 1360 Grant Ave in 1933. They had 2 children ,Ben and Helen. I am attempting to identify links to an old corporation called," Geringer, Sperling, and Schecter,Inc." This corporation had 3 signees as of Jan 1927. They include: 1) Max Sperling of 8644-24th Ave, Brooklyn 2) Isser Geringer of 1463 Hoe Ave 3) Harry Schechter of 128 East 2nd St. The Schechter name may be important as Gedale Geringer's brother, Isaac Geringer, was married to Gussie (Schenkler). I also found a Rose (Geringer) who married Hyman Schachner.

The following were listed as directors of the Gerringer Family Circle:

Harry Gerringer 1631 Grand Ave, Bronx, NY Clara Kaufman 1878 Harrison Ave, Bronx, NY Regina Altman 1 Sickles St, NY, NY Yetta Altman 1041 Findlay Ave, Bronx, NY Rose Schachner 1715 Walton Ave, Bronx,NY
