<< For a July 7 family reunion, I am trying to determine the hometown of
my maternal great grandparents, Aaron and Rachel (REICHSTEIN) GREENBERG.
Their dates are roughly 1845-1933 and 1850-1932 respectively. They had 10
children: two unknown who died in Europe plus Nathan (perhaps -- see below
-- born in Kovno 1874), Pauline (SCHER), 1875, Bertha/Becky/Brainke
(ROSENBERG), 1876, Yettie (KANE), 1879, Harry, 1880, Benjamin, 1885,
Simon, 1887, and Ada/Ida/Adil/Adeline (TULMAN), 1891 (in NY).
Neither was ever naturalized in the US. >>
Look for the U.S. naturalization petitions of their children.
True that the children may have been born in different towns than their
parents, so this is not as good as looking for the naturalization
petitions of their siblings. That is an alternative, but if their
siblings' petitions were filed before 9/1906, it would not have useful
Another potential source would be the World War I draft
registrations of Aaron or his brothers.
