My maternal grandmother, Rose Igel Kurtz, I believe was George's brother. She is listed as Rachel on the Ellis Island ship's manifest. The ship's name was The Canada. She came over from Stryy Poland with her 8 siblings and settled in Brooklyn, NY. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
with any info you have. I'm sure we are related. My mother, Helen Kurtz Sachs lives near me in the San Diego area. She has spoken of her uncle George whom they called Shayer (sp?). My mother only knew of 7 siblings, not 8. I believe there was a one year and we would like to know what became of him.
