I am new at this.

We are trying to find information on Peritz Weil who was still alive as an elderly man in 1920 in Poland. His wife was Sarah and he had at least 3 children: Nathan, and 2 sisters.

Nathan (born in Russia) is our grandfather but we can find no further information about him than this. Nathan left either Poland or possibly Russia and came to the US in the late 1800's and settled in Bradford, PA. His death certificate says his father is Peritz and his mother is Sarah. Nathan was born April 12, 1868.

Nathan's death certificate mentions both Russia and Poland as the birthplace of Peritz and Sarah. Nathan's obituary says his father was alive at his death in Poland along with Nathan's 2 sisters. There is mention of only one other name, Solomon Weil. He is mentioned as being a "student" and with Nathan Weil in Bradford in the early 1900's. We do not know what relation he is to Nathan.

Can you give us any direction?
