  hemy: "Schweizer Sportblatt", Nr 45, 1899, November 8, p. 3:
"Some of stalemate positions are favored due to their symmetrical structure, such as the following from Pastor Umdritz in Reval or D. M. Schapiro from Memel ..."

"Wiener Schachzeitung", 1911, Nr 21-24, November-December, p.346:
"Saul Schapiro (Munich or Lodz; do not confuse him with another equally strong player D. M. Schapiro from Cologne, who, by the way, is also a native Russian)".

It is possible that D. M. Schapiro from Memel is the same person as D. M. Schapiro from Cologne.

Many of "Russian" Jews moved to Memel using the proximity of Memel to Russian Empire.

  hemy: <D. M. Schapiro from Memel is the same person as D. M. Schapiro from Cologne.> It was confirmed by User: Alan McGowan, who sent me birthday documents of David Max Schapiro, born in Memel on July 24, 1867 and records from Cologne address books 1925 and 1935 with the address of David Max Schapiro.

D. M. Schapiro died in 1926.

<K?rzlich verschied in K?ln, noch nicht 60 Jahre alt, Herr D. M. Schapiro, einer der st?rksten Vertreter der ?lteren Generation, der in den letzten 30 Jahren wiederholt K?ln auf deutschen Schachkongressen, in Wettk?mpfen gegen benachbarte Verb?nde und Vereine und gegen?ber dem Auslande ehrenvoll und erfolgreich vertreten hat.

  hemy: <mifralu> many thanks.

We are having some confusion with the date of death of D. M. Schapiro.

Yesterday I received from <Alan McGowan> record from 1935 Cologne address book with reference which shows 2 David Schapiros (David Max Schapiro and David Schapiro).
David Max Schapiro has the same address as 1925, and that address also appears in Ranneforths Schach Kalender 1925 - Franziskastr. 9/11.

  hemy: <Alan McGowan> made a research about the <record from 1935 Cologne address book> and concluded that David Max Schapiro's name may be carried over from earlier address books.
