Re: Searching for Sunny BERNARD / Sonny HOFSTEDE #usa
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Sonny immigrated with her parents, Bernard and Helene (nee Harpuder), in December 1946. Their manifest mentions a Kanner relative in Baltimore.
The family settled in Joliet, Illinois. According to documents created there and in Amsterdam, Sonny's birth date was 23 April 1938. I found on BeenVerified.com a Sunny H. Bernard with that birth date and a Joliet address. Unfortunately, BeenVerified's record says that she died in October 2013. However I don't see her death in other sources.
The family is on a tree on Ancestry -- the Harpuder Family Tree from Rzeszow. According to the tree, Helene's parents were Herman Harpuder (son of Leib Harpuder and Reisel Kanarek) and Sara Beile Rieszfeld (daughter of Selig Rieszfeld and Taube Feiga Leiter).

I am looking for family member Sunny BERNARD who came to the United States from Amsterdam in the 1940’s. I believe we are part of the same Reisfeld / Lewin / Kanner family of Rzeszow and later Berlin. Sunny had been known earlier as Sonny HOFSTEDE.
