Peter, 
Have you searched using the maiden name of Zelman and Cyrla's mother?
My father's paternal family arrived under the mother's maiden name.That was discovered in a US naturalization. document of one of her children. 
I've learned that, in some European countries, a Jewish religious marriage was not recognized, and a civil marriage might have been too expensive. So, at least the children would carry the mother's surname. Once in the US, they were free to take the father's.
