My paternal grandmother's GROSSMAN family originated in Savran, Ukraine. Many of
them settled in the Philadelphia area in the first decade of the 20th century. My
grandmother, Gussie (Geesa) GROSSMAN GELLER and grandfather, Israel GELLER left
Philadelphia with their children for Toronto in 1907. Gussie's father was Hirsch
GROSSMAN (GROSFMAN). Gussie visited him in 1905 and in 1915 according to border
documents visited her brother, I. GROSSMAN who lived at 217 Vince St, Philadelphia.
She had a brother Samuel who was married to Rose. Their children were Louis,
Sarah, Gertrude, Anna, Ethel, Mary, Jack and Henry. I recall meeting a cousin,
Beatrice >from Philadelphia many years ago. My aunt, Sadie (Beatrice) Geller
Keshen >from Toronto returned to Philadelphia for a few years mid-century.
Our Toronto family has lost touch with the GROSSMANS. I would like to locate
descendants of the family as I will be attending the Jewishgen conference. I have
posted on the Philadelphia conference website but not received any responses.
Your help will be greatly appreciated. My e-mail address is: email@example.com
