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
