I am still searching to find out what has become of my aunt ,as far as I know her name was SADIE (I was told by her niece who I traced and lives in New York now age 88). I just new from a letter I found 60 years after my father death that he had a brother MAX WEISS born 1884 and a sister MINNIE WEISS born 1890, in the USA which he wrote to them from Czechoslovakia after the war and letters have been returned. I have managed with your help on this site to trace them and the daughter of my aunt Minnie. She told me that my father had another sister in New York Which was not mentioned in his letter and her name was SADIE born between 1880 and 1895 She knows very little about her, she knows she married and that Sadie and her husband run a candy store. I also know that when Max Weiss and Minnie Weiss left for the USA they stayed with their uncle EMANUEL SCHOENBERGER in Kingston,Ulster. She told me she had a daughter name HELEN born approx 1915 and a boy 2/3 years younger. That is all what she told me that she knows. That they lived in New York and had a candy store , possible address around 1930s Amsterdam Avenue New York.
How can I go about tracing her? I traced her brother and sister but nothing about her. Any ideas? is there anyone who can help me.

I appreciate any help anyone can extend to me and am very grateful to all of you who helped so far and helping me now.

Thank you
