A while back, Sharon Handler met a woman in shul in Ramot Jerusalem who came from Montreal.  After a little Jewish geography, they figured out that they were distant cousins.

Brenda Caplan's grandfather was the first cousin of Solomon Epstein.  Solomon's brother Kasriel was instrumental in bringing him over from Europe.

You can see a picture of Brenda and her husband Tom Caplan at Aunt Hynda and Uncle Willie's 50th anniversary party.  They are standing second & third from the right, next to Joey Epstein.

Jerrold has added a few pictures from the Ottawa Cemetary of Samuel, Kasriel and Charles Cohen.   Samuel and Kasriel were Solomon Epstein's brothers.
