Hello fellow researchers
I am just beginning my research into the Silverman side of my family.  Specifically Frieda Silverman was my great grandmother married to Jossel Fixler and they had nine children.  Three remained behind in Europe (Russia, Romania) and six came to the United States.  These six include my grandmother Goldie Fixler Wallach and her five brothers, Max, Ben, Sam, Louis, and Nathan.  I am having good luck researching my Fixler family, but I cannot get started with Frieda Silverman.  I have looked on jewishgen sites, contacted individuals who might be related, and looked at many revision lists.  I have nothing.  I wonder if anyone might recognize any of these names and help me get started with my Silverman research.  I realize the last name may be Zilberman or Silberman.  Thank you for your help.

I do see two Freida Zilberman in Khotin uezd, born one in 1856 and a second in 1855. They seems lived not in Khotin,  but in towns in that same uezd (county), one family in town of Brichany and second in town of Lipkany.  Sometimes our ancestors, when asking where they are from, will give a name of a large town or a center of county or province.
If you know the names of Freida parents, that might help here.
