Dear Genners,

I just saw a copy of my grandmother, Sarah DWORKIN HARRIS's, death certificate
listing her parent's names. They are Siman DWORKIN and Faye PORTNOY. I know my
grandmother had a cousin by the name of Louis Dworkin, he was a witness to my
grandfather Abraham Harris's naturalization in Chicago, IL. My grandmother was
born in Russia around 1884 and came to the United States as a bride in 1905. The
naturalization papers list her birthplace as Babie but I can find nothing by that
name. My grandfather, her husband, was >from Kiev. His given name was Abraham
Abramowitz, but changed it to Harris when he became a citizen. If any of this is
familiar to you, please contact me.
