Re: Woman's name after a divorce #belarus

I, too, think this is a great question. And I have another
twist on it. I found two women on a passenger list who I think
are my great-grandmother and great-aunt. Both are listed as
BLUMBERG. However, my reat-grandmother had been widowed and
remarried and widowed (I think-- but maybe divorced) again
before coming to the US. The family line is, "she buried
three husbands in Europe and married another one here."
The BLUMBERG children were >from either the first or second
marriage, definitely not the third.

her daughter.
