My name is David Billig. I am looking for information on my Great-grandfather Moses Billig. While I have lots of information on his 7 children I have no information on him. All I know is that he was born in 1864 and he and his wife Mary came here from Austria in 1887 with one child, Myron.
I was able to locate his grave here in New York and found out that he was buried along with members of a lodge that was called the Brzezaner lodge. You mentioned in your post that your family was from Brzezany. Do you know of Biliyk's from there that may have changed their names to Billig or maybe had their named changed as a result of misspelling? Are there any Billig's from that area? Do you think the Brzezaner lodge members could have originally been from that town???
I hope you are able to receive this and can write back. You can reply to the post or you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
