Hello fellow genealogists,
I have a brick wall in my family tree and am hoping someone might help me break through it.
My grandfather’s sister’s birth name is Hana FIRER / FUHRER, born in Radom, Poland on December 4/16, 1878. The record was recorded in 1880. She is the daughter of Jakob Icek FIRER and Fajga Brandla AUSTRIAN.
Her Social Security Application in 1939 gives her birth date as January 1, 1884. She was living in the Bronx at the time of application.
She died on February 15, 1965 in Brooklyn, NY and is buried in Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, NY. Her headstone indicates she was a mother and grandmother. The contact information from the cemetery indicates a grandson named Paul (no surname given) who lived in Miami Beach. I found no other GOLDMAN’s in the family plot.
Her married name is GOLDMAN. I only have an initial for her husband’s given name. My grandfather arrived in the US on October 4, 1913 and was going to stay with his brother-in-law, “T GOLDMAN”.
There is a family story that she lived in England before she came to the US and ‘left a family behind’. I have no idea of any truth behind this story.
I have not found her on the Ellis Island data base. I have no idea of her husband’s given name or any of her children. Any and all help would be appreciated.
