Classification: Query
Surnames: Goldberg, KANNE, Goldman, FRIEDMAN
I have found a tremendous amount of ancestors on my Mother's side! So much so, that it will keep me busy for a great while, sorting through it all.

That is why I am SO disappointed with what I have found on my Father's side very little. So I am hoping that some of you can help me (please) find more ancestors on my Father's side.

I have only been able to trace back to my Father's Father (my Grandfather) whose name was Ray Goldberg.
(Slight chance he was born in Chicago, Illinois, but not absolutely certain.) I just don't know that much about him.
He died in 1961, before I was born. :(
I just don't know that much about him.

He was married to Dorothy (Dora?) KANNE.
Birth: 17 JUL 1902 (I believe in Chicago, Illinois, but not absolutely certain.)
Death: JAN 1976 in Phoenix, Arizona.

They had 3 children:
Lester Marvin Goldberg (My Father)
Birth: 5 APR 1926.
Death: 23 APR 1989

Roberta Goldberg Death: 1970

Michael (Mike) Goldberg (still alive)

Can anyone help me with more information on my Grandfather, My Father's Father, Ray Goldberg and his ancestors?
