I have a very puzzling situation that you might perhaps help me with. My grandmother was born in Cuba in 1896 and her death certificate says that her father, John Griegerson was born in Norway and her mother, Edith Ferris, was born in Pennsylvania. Her name was Dorothy. The only thing that I can come up with, is that she might have been orphaned after her family immigrated to the U.S. I have absolutely nothing but Dorothy's death certificate. It said that she had been in the U.S. for 29 years meaning that she immigrated in about 1899. If you could check the N.Y. records for any orphaned little girl from Cuba that might match this discription I would very much appreciate it.
