Goldberg Family Overview

Though I cannot find immigration or naturalization records for anyone in this family (despite lots of effort, ARGH!), plenty of other records (such as Gertrude Kesluk's social security application, which I did not upload) make me confident that they are from Zhitomir, either district or its capital city, in Volhynia province in the Ukraine (hence the odd mention on Tillie's marriage certificate that her mother is from Voliner (a Voliner is a person from Volhynia)). See the yellow arrow below:

One or two of the sisters may have begun their American lives in Philaelphia, but I believe the rest started in Brooklyn, where Tillie met and married Harry. Not long after their marriage all of the Goldbergs were together in Philadelphia. See the pink & purple tacks in the map below. (You should zoom out, since one was in West Philly and another went to Wilmington.)

Finally, these pictures probably include more Goldbergs than I know right now.

Fastover

Sandy tells me this is the name of the landsmanschaft Mollie is buried with. I believe this refers to people from the town of Fastov, Ukraine:

The weird thing is that I had lots of documentation for this family being from Zhitomer. Fastov is not near there.
