In Reply to: Looking for Abraham Seltzer by Sunny Christiansen of 225

I am looking for information on a Henrietta Seltzer who arrived in the US in 1910. She came from Tarnopol a city that changed hands many times and is now part of the Ukraine. Seltzer was her maiden name, she was married to Leiser Bakalijnik. Leiser arrived first and then Henrietta and their son Pinkus followed. I was hoping that since Henrietta and your Abraham share the same surname and arrival year there might be a connection. They first settled in New York and by the 1920 census were in Philadelphia. The last name had been changed to Bakaley and their children's names were Perry(Pinkus),Sam,Cele,Abraham and David. I am having a very hard time finding any information on Henrietta. Her name also appears differently on manifests, census reports etc. I have seen the name as Henrietta, Henie, Anna and Hannah. Please reply and let me know if you feel there could be a connection.
