I'm not sure if there's any way to make a connection. My 2nd great grandmother is Chaya Rifka Goldstein (married Ghedale Marcovici/Markowitz in Iasi).
Her father was JOSEPH GOLDSTEIN and, we think, Riva Blum. Chaya Rifka (later known as Ida) was born abt 1856 in Bessarabia, but the family settled in Iasi, where the children all were born.
We were told Chaya had a brother Avram, but it's possible there were others.
Chaya left Romania first in 1911 to bring her granddaughters over, returned, then came with her husband in 1920. They settled in the New York area, primarily Brooklyn.
