I have no idea what year either of my maternal grandparents came to the United States. My Grandfather Nassana (Sam) Sitkoff was from the town of Siroca in Russia. I know of one brother for sure Usha who also came to the US. There may be another brother from that time but we’re not sure. My Grandmother Ida was also from Europe and her last name was Balaban. She had many brothers and sisters who immigrated to the States.
As I believe I wrote earlier my grandfather passed away in May of 1953 two months before I was born and I am named for him. He was 72 my mom believes at the time of his death so that makes his birth year somewhere around 1880. I really should do some research on Ancestry.com. I did so a few years ago and didn’t find too much. But more documents may have been released that I can find on the site.
