I lost Zippe after she arrived #usa


Shelley Mitchell
 

My 24 year old unwed great aunt, Zippe Kraysman, arrived in NYC with her married sister, Broche Wolfson, on June 10, 1893.  I have her departure and arrival records.  Broche lives with her husband and no one has seen Zippe since. I tried using variations on Zippe like Cype, Sura, and variations of Kraysman, as well as her presumed mother's surname, Zysman.  Nothing.  She arrived too late for the 1893 census and the next one wasn't until 7 years later.  I have hit a brick wall.  The closest I might have come is a footstonein Californai with no family information for a Sarah Kreissman born around the same time.  I have exhausted all resources that I know of.  Can anyone help me find great aunt Zippe?

Another possibility:   My grandmother, named Zipporah, known as Zippe, became Sophie in the U.S.

Hi Shelley,

If you know Zippe's parents names you can try this trick to search NYC marriage records.  Go to: 
https://stevemorse.org/vital/nyvital.html?type=marriage

Enter the first names of Zippe's mother and father. 
Leave surnames for them blank.

You can also leave blank first name of bride. 

You can leave bride's surname blank, or enter the first letter(s) of the surname.  Be sure to check "starts with" for surname, if you only enter the first letter or two.

KRAYSMAN, I am thinking, may also be spelled KREISMAN, or other variants.

You might also want to look for Zippe in NYC death records:

Zippe could also have married outside of NYC, or could have returned home.

Zippe is a nickname for Zipporah.  Have you tried that? 
There are also many possibilities for Zysman, including Sussman

Hi Shelley,

My second great-grandmother was named Zipe in the passenger records when she came to the USA in 1897. She became Celia; that is how she appears in the one census record in which she was enumerated and on her grave marker, as well, though her death certificate shows her as Zipe. Perhaps this will give you a new lead.

My great-grandmother, who died when all of her children were under the age of 10,  was "Cypa" and several of her granddaughters were named in her memory as "Tzippa" with American/English names of "Charlotte".  My mother's nickname throughout her life was "Chippy" as a variation on the "Tzippa" + "Charlotte". 
Just another lead for an anglicized version of the name.
