My grandparents were both brought to the US as children in the early 1900s.  According to what I know my grandfather's family (Goldberg) was from the Kiev area and that is what is reflected on the various  Naturalization Petitions and the passenger manifest from their 1902 arrival.   My grandmother (Laginsky) was born in Teplyk, and was Russian  & Yiddish speaking as a child upon arrival in 1913.  But when they got married in 1928, they got married in the Lemberger Congregation Synagogue .   How common was that?  Just convenience do you think?
