Genealogue Challenge #140

Estelle Reiner—wife of Carl, mother of Rob, and the real star of When Harry Met Sally—died this week.

On what date did her parents marry?


Tricky one! I don't have an exact answer, but it appears they married circa 1903 based on the info in the 1930 census, probably in the Bronx, NY area.

What info I did gather, which seems correct and might help others narrow this down: Estelle Reiner's parents were Henry & Minnie LeBost. Henry sometimes appears in the records by the "old" family surname Chlebowsky.


Henry Chlebowsky married Minnie Lieberman on May 5, 1903 in Manhattan County. Some time between 1918 and 1920 he changed his name to Lebost. The name change is documented in the Civil War Pension Index.


You got it!
