My great-great grandfather was Isaac Brilliant, born in 1852 in Odessa. He came through Ellis Island in 1906 and lived in Brooklyn, NY and Baltimore. Unsure of his wife's name and have no info, other than they had five children:

Lizzie, b. 1/13/1876
Ida, b. 1/8/1882
Louis, b. 9/6/1886
Max, b. 5/14/1888
Philip, b. 4/17/1891

Max is my great-grandfather; he was born in Russia but came to America (not sure whether it was with Isaac or sometime before/after).

Max married Ida Levitsky abt. 1913 in Baltimore City and they had four children:

Bernard, b. 12/15/1913
Samuel, b. 12/15/1913 (fraternal twin)
Sidney, b. 12/31/1917
Betty, b. 3/19/1924
