On June 5, 2008 I visited Miriam Epstein at her home in Montreal West. I had heard that she had
a Papineau connection through Dorothy Goldwater, I called her and she agreed to have me over
that morning so that I could interview her.
Her paternal grandfather was Shaya Rimer and he was a fine cabinet-maker, having built the almuds
for the White Shul. Her grandmother was Mizza. Her grandparents who came to Papineau, and her
father who grew up there. As a kid, she visited there every weekend. She talks about them on the tape.
The tape is about 45 minutes long, and Miriam talks about several Papineau people. To hear it, go
