Well, I've been making fantastic progress, back to maternal g-g-grandparents
in Poland, thanks to JRI-Poland and translation help >from this group. Just
this week I confirmed the names of my g-g-grandparents, and also found that
my g-grandmother had 3 siblings who perished in the Holocaust, which even
my mother hadn't known.
I want to start getting deeper into my father's side. My grandfather,
Nathan Meyers (formerly Meyerowitz) came to the US in 1890 with his father
Hirsch. Hirsch stayed in New York (haven't found him yet) and Nathan moved
to Worcester, Massachusetts. I've been told Nathan had a brother Joe who
lived in New Jersey, had a store of some sort (tobacco? newstand?) and may
have been blind or had serious vision problems. He may have been in Newark
or Jersey City but I'm really not certain.
Has anyone >from New Jersey or this area ever heard of him?
