Braunstein/Bronstein in Pittsburgh, PA

My paternal grandmotherís maiden name was Anna Braunstein. She was born in Russia in about 1872. She married my grandfather Max Kushner in about 1890. They came to America in 1900/01 with three children and moved in with a brother of Anna's father in Pittsburgh, PA, Louis Bronstein/Braunstein. All we know about this relative is that he operated a bathhouse. In 1910 the family moved to Canonsburg, PA, a small town twenty miles southwest of Pittsburgh. In the 20s the spelling of Kushner was changed from a "K" to a "C."

A news item in the Canonsburg Daily Notes in 1927 noted that my grandmother, Anna Braunstein Cushner, had a brother B. (Bernard) Braunstein whom she visited in November/December 1927 at 884 Riverside Drive, New York. It is the descendants of this Bernard Braunstein that I am trying to locate.

I would appreciate your response and any information anyone might be able to provide.

Arnold W. Cushner
