I’ve gotten into researching my family history and came upon a stumbling block.
Great grandfathers name is Israel Salzman (1875-1926), father name is Yitzchak (dates unknown). Israel’s brother’s name is Philip (Feive) (1871-1947). Israel married Rachel (1877-1954), whose maiden name was also Salzman as it is believed they were first cousins, which makes me believe their fathers were brothers. They had 4 children - Rose and Isaac born in Russia, Sylvia and Beatrice/Becki born in NY.
I’m trying to go back to Israel’s father, Yitzchak, and get more info because I have multiple Salzman trees but can’t connect. My thought is that Yitzchak had siblings and each of these trees are a sibling and descendants.
Israel is buried in MT Zion cemetery in Maspeth, Queens (NY) in a section of the Horodocker Relief Assn. I believe that Horodock is where they lived but not sure if it was Russia/Ukraine/Belarus/Poland. I don’t believe Yitzchak ever came to the Us, Israel came to NY in 1902 with his brother, followed by his wife and two children in 1908/1909.
To make this more complex, Salzman may also be Saltzman in some records.
Thanks for any help or recommendations!
