I have already posted a while ago, but have now more material to work on, in the
hope someone can help me further in finding my relatives:

My great grandfather's brother, Morris Greenbaum (Moschek Grunbaum)
emigrated >from Warsaw to New York in 1906.

His wife, Anna (Chane Rivka, born Habergritz in 1874), and three children followed
him in 1910: Sadie (Scheindel) born 12/05/1896; Louis (Gersche ?) born 03/05/1898;
Benjamin (Baruch) born 18/04/1900. They gave as contact address Anna's sister and
brother in law: Golde and Rubin/Rudolf Stern.

They appear in Ellis Island and on the naturalization petition of Morris in 1916.
They were then living at 409 7th Avenue in Kings County, New York.
Morris is recorded as working as a machinist and being born on 25/10/1873.

They appear in the 1920 (Brooklyn, 859 42nd street) and 1930 Census (69 Assembly
district). Benjamin died in 1921 and Morris in 1939, he's entered in Beth David
Cemtery, Nassau County.

Louis married Sonia/Sarah Ginsberg in 1933 (certificate 12552, Kings County, NY)
But his birth date doesn't match anymore, it's recorded as 1906. He then appears in
the 1940 census with his wife and a son, Stephen born in 1939, living on 10 Monroe
street, NY.

Sadie married Julius Anker in 1936 (certificate 9486, Kings County, NY). Her first
name is recorded then as Sally. She also appears as Sally Anker, in the 1940
Census. She's living with her husband recorded as Jay Anker (working for the
railroad) And her mother Anna, age 63. Anna died in 1954.

I've tried looking through the SSDI records,Here is what I found (birth dates don't
always match the one I have >from the naturalization petition):

Sally Anker born 12/12/1895, living in LA, California, died on 29/09/1988.
Sadie Greenblum born 10/05/1896, living in Nassau County, NY, died February 1984.

Louis Greenbaum born 08/07/1898 living in Nassau County, died 1985
Louis Greenbaum born on 13/11/1898 living in Richmond, died 1979.

Sonia Greenbaum born 06/06/1903, living in San Bernardino, CA, died February 1986.

For Stephen, I only found a marriage index in 1967, to a Ruth M. Biatch in
Los Angeles. Don't know if it's the right person.

Could he be recorded as Sammy in the SSDI:
Sammy Greenbaum born 26/09/1939, living in Suffolk, NY,
and in 1997, living in Centereach, NY (is that a nursing home ?)

How can I check these out without incurring too many expenses ?

How should I work >from there ?

Thank you in advance for taking the time to look it through.
