Reitner Family of Przemysl, Austria (Now in Poland)

Posted: 1278787801000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Reitner, Lieberman, Engle, Koenig
I am trying to find more information about my maternal grandmother, Bessie Reitner, who came alone in 1903 at the age of 14. She was met by her aunt, Mrs. Ron Koenig at Ellis Island. She stayed in New York and married Philip Lieberman in 1915 and had two children, Leonard and Frances. A widow at the age of 28, she raised her children by herself. She brought over two brothers, Irving and Leo, and a sister, Edith, who married Isidore Friedland. After the war, the only known surviving family member, the son of her older sister Regina, Leon Engle came to this country.

In 1935 Grandma remarried, to Morris Schwartzman. She divorced him and in 1946 moved to Los Angeles where she lived until her death in 1991.

If any of these people are related to your family, please contact me.
