My grandfather arrived in the United States in 1892 with his wife and
two daughters and settled in Boston. I have found quite a lot about
him >from that date forward and about his wife's family in Lithuania
and in the United States.
I am trying to find more about him, where he came from, whether he
had siblings, his parents.
What I know is that he registered the births of his daughters in
Bialystok in 1891, surname Yudelowna, that at first he was a shochet
in Boston, and that his wife's family came >from Valbevizik. I'm
wondering if I might be able to track him through his religious
training or shtetl lists or even a Jewish marriage registry (I'd
guess 1888 or 1889). I'd appreciate any suggestions on next steps.
