(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The tale of a large legacy left by a rich American relative has stirred many Roumanian Jews bearing the name Weinberg.

The story is current here that a Chicago Jew, Maurice Weinberg, said to have been a millionaire, left a large fortune on his death. Many who bear the name Weinberg or who belong to families by the name of Weinberg are seeking to establish their claim of relationship to the Chicago Weinberg, who came from Roumania.

Rudolph Weinberg, who is at present the sexton of a synagogue in Muncacz in Czechoslovakia, is most confident of all the claimants that the fortune will fall to him.
