Get >from New York and arrival information

1. My ggm was divorced >from her first husband, I think in the NY area and I
would like to know where I could obtain information >from her Get that might
be in an archive somewhere. She subsequently married my ggf and I assume
that event also ocurred in New York but I have no idea where in that city or
state. I already went to the Vital Records admin in Massachusetts and there
was no record of her marriages or death.

Where could I begin looking?

2. She arrived in the US as a minor, around 1879 >from Poland with some
other family members. I have not been able to find them on Castle Garden so
I think they might have entered another port (Boston, Philadelphia). We may
have finally located her grave in Woburn, MA, thanks to JCAM, but her life
is still a huge mystery.

3. The 1900 census states that she had a daughter named Rachel born in
August 1894. Nobody in the family has ever heard of that person. Any ideas
on how to find out who Rachel was?

I'd appreciate any advice in trying to locate these records. Thanks again
for all your help!
