JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Metropolitan Opera Buffs: Help! #general

I am somehow related to Sophie Breslau(er), who sang with the
Metropolitan Opera around the time of the First World War. My
grandmother visited her backstage while on her honeymoon in 1916. My
Breslauer family settled in the Baltimore/Washington area, and they
emigrated >from Grossenbuseck, Hesse (not far >from Giessen) in 1845. I've
checked some general opera guides but haven't found any genealogical
leads about Sophie's life. I even found an old news story with a photo
in the NY Times but can detect no family resemblance! Any suggestions on
how to track down information about her relatives? Thanks! Nancy Breslau
