Sigmund Kaplan is my great grandfather. I have never known much about him, which is why his story interested me the most out of all my relatives. He was born October 15, 1902 in Odessa, Russia. He died February 12th 1989 in Brooklyn, New York.
Sigmund bought an appartment after he married. The address was 2906 Brighton 12th street. It was there that he raised my grandfather, Havey Kaplan. He owned a childrens clothing store called "BabyLand" as one of his many jobs. He had a very adventurous spirit, and liked to do many outdoor activities such as horseback riding and skiing, He later gave birth to my aunt, Myra Kaplan
