I am searching for my son's GGGrandfather's origins. His name was Max Silver/Silverstein and was born 1884. He was adopted by Evan and Morris, though I only discovered that from Morris' probate records. Eva fought Max's inheritance on the grounds that he was not legally their son.
Morris and Eva were born in Bourouyak, Russia and went to the US in 1865, settling in Cleveland Ohio. I have Max's place of birth as Cleveland, but I don't know for sure. Max married Becci Kaufman in 1902.
Any information about Max, Morris, or Eva would be so welcome!
