So sorry to use this site for personal info.
I was wondering if your family orginated in South Norwalk, Ct.
My great grandfather was from Russia and was a rabbi.

Glad to meet another Greenspun. Sadly, my Greenspun roots are from gritty New York City and not upscale Connecticut. Keep in mind that two people named "Greenspun" are not necessarily related any more than two Englishmen named "Carpenter" or "Smith". "Greenspan/Greenspun", according to the Museum of the Diaspora in Tel Aviv, is a trade name used by merchants who sold a green pigment from Spain ("Green from Spain").
