Help needed finding maiden name. Married name SALIMAN #usa #russia #names

David Buford

My great grandparents were from somewhere in Russia and moved to Denver Colorado in the early 1890's. My G Grandfather Michael's last name was Saliman. His wife's name was Bessie or (Pelte). I have been trying to find out her maiden name. On my grandmother's death certificate, it said Segal was her mother's maiden name, but the more research I have done shows it may have been Schreiber. Someone on ancestry says that Bessie's father was Shalom Schreiber. Her brother was Morris Schreiber who had a son named Joseph. When I look at the 1910 census my G Grandparents lived on Clay St in Denver. There were others, a son and two different inlaw's that lived on Clay st. as well. There is also a Joseph Schreiber on the same street. This is speculation from what I am finding but I have no proof. I was just wondering if anyone out there knows for sure. Also on her gravestone it show's her father's first name was Ze'ev. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks.

Do you have a naturalization certificate, birth certificates for her children or similar items that might state her maiden name?  I found my grandmother's name on the birth certificates of my father and his brothers.

Is there some reason you haven't contacted the person who posted this name and supposed family information on Ask what evidence (sources) they have for this association. Are they related?

Currently, I am helping a cousin try to remove a non-existant brother from a pedigree on FamilySearch created by a 'helpful' volunteer. The volunteer, who has no relationship to the family, based this addition from faulty information in an extracted record online. It probably will be impossible to correct the online record. This phantom sibling will likely crop up again in other poorly researched online pedigrees. We don't yet know where along the line this incorrect information was introduced. Errors can be introduced any time a record is created, transcribed, extracted, copied, or indexed. An example of why it is vital for genealogist detectives to study how to source and evaluate evidence.
