Abraham Silverman, Providence, RI #usa


Are you sure that two, (if not all three), of the Abraham Silvermans are not the same person? I discovered a grand-uncle, and his family, living in Brooklyn in the 1930 U.S. Census - taken in early June. Later that same month, in the same 1930 Census,  the family was living in upstate New York. Apparently they had relocated, and since the two recordings were taken on different dates, they were listed twice.  Families do move around for various reasons.

I have identified at least 6 foreign born Abraham Silvermans on the 1910 census for Providence.  Only 3 list Russia as their place of birth; the others  list Romania and Austria.  Of the three Russian born, all immigrated in the 1903-1905 timeframe per the census.  Without more info such as Abraham's approx. DOB, parents, occupation etc. I do not know which one to explore.  Familysearch.org is free and you can find lots of records to explore yourself and identify which Abraham is the right one.

I am looking for the descendants of Abraham Silverman (or Zilberman) who arrived in Providence prior to 1904 from Letichev, Podolia Gubernia, in what is now Ukraine. He probably married after he arrived in Providence.
