I'm looking for information on our Elbaum family tree. My great grandmother Sarah Elbaum was probably born in the 1850s. She married Bernard Waterman and lived in Bialystok, where she had several children: Max, Tressa, Maurice, Lewis, Fannie, Sam. The family settled in Troy, NY, in about 1886, then later moved to Maine.

I have a complete Waterman family tree, but know virtually nothign about the Elbaum side. Sarah's relatives may have settled somewhere else in the US. I noticed (on the Ellis Island site) that a couple of Elbaums from Bialystok (Nathan, Sam, Kalman, Gemia) settled in New York.

Any connections out there?
