For the longest time, I could not find my great great grandmother on any
passenger manifests. I kept thinking, how difficult is it to find someone
with the name of Ida ROSENBERG (nee HORWITZ). I looked and looked and looked
and kept coming up empty-handed. I was with almost 100% certainty she used the
last name of ROSENBERG when she arrived here. I took a chance using the last
name of RASCHES, which is what ROSENBERG was Anglicized from. Bingo, found her
and my great grandmother's half-siblings, as well as my step-great great
grandfather who came to America before his wife and children. I found her
listed as Chaje Jence RASCHES.
Don't give up!
PS my great grandmother and her sister both viewed their step-father as a
father because their own father died when they were very very young.
