Lisa, My great grandparents, Julius & Tillie Berfield traveled from a town near Odessa, Ukraine to NYC in 1885...they then settled in St Louis and began a family in 1886...
How do I know this ?? I first found my great grandparents 1900 census report ...I then had to search all the names of the family...male members are easier....a few month's of searching and I found my grandmothers death certificate which indicated where she was from and who her fathers name was.."near Odessa, Russia" ( now Ukraine )
I then went to www.jewishgen.com trying to connect the dots ..not easy but rewarding...
Thoughts??
