My greatgreatgrandmother emmigrated >from Russia (Novogrudok), via Liverpool,
to New Haven, Ct. (USA) sometime between1880 and 1890. She and her (second)
husband were silversmiths.
I don't know her second husband's family name , but her first family name
(as were her 4 children who came with her) was Rivka ABRAMOWITZ.

Is there any way of finding records about her in New Haven on the basis of
the above information? Maybe a list of jewish silversmiths in New Haven
during that period of time?

Go to http://news.google.com/archivesearch/advanced_search and in
the section "With all the words", type in "Abramowitz New Haven". Then
check "prior to 1950". You'll get back newspaper reports >from New
Haven (>from the 1920's and 1930's) on anyone named Abramowitz.
