was Yetta Rosenbaum who married a Hyman Harris and lived in St Albans,VT, as
did my Bubbe, Rose. Can anyone help? By the way,Rose came over in "parve"

What do censuses list as Rose and Yetta's immigration year and citizenship
Ancestry has a 1908 marriage record and 1910 1920 1930 1940 censuses for
Hyman and Yetta Harris in St Albans, Franklin, Vermont. Yetta, born about
1888, is listed as Austrian arriving 1906 to 1908.
Ancestry has a 1910 marriage record and 1920 1930 1940 censuses for Julius
and Rose Winner. Gelky/Rose, born 1890 or 1891, is listed as Russian
arriving 1902 or 1907.
So they both arrived before marriage and were naturalized before 1920. If
their husbands were naturalized after marriage, naturalization petitions
might also list arrival info for their wives.
Since they settled in St. Albans, VT, it is likely they arrived by ship in
Canada so you should check Ancestry's Border Crossings >from Canada to U.S.
