I suspect they are different Bertha Rittbergs, but thought
I'd mention that my father's second cousin, Sam Joseph
Handler married a Bertha Rittberg in 1948 in Mountaindale,
NY. I have met them both (he goes by Joe) and they live in
Ellenville, NY. They have 5 children and many grandchildren
but I don't have you among them on the records.

But just in case they are a connection I thought it worth
writing to you. I don't have anything on Bertie's family
history, but can put you in touch with some of the
children/grandchildren from that branch if you would like.

To everyone in the group, hello. It's been the most
stressful year of my life between two businesses, renovating
a new house, and over the last week between snow storms,
moving to our new house. So I've just been skimming the
digests and keeping up with all of you in the background.

All the best for 2004.
