My grandmother told me that my great-great grandmother emigrated to the United States about 1900. Her name was Selma Lehmann (Germany). In New York she married Timothy Bigelow. Maybe he came from Canada, but he worked in New York. Their daughter Ethel was born in 1906. But a few years later (1910 ?) Timothy and Selma died. At the age of 5 Ethel travelled alone to her grandmother in Germany. I don't know, If there were any relatives (or now descendants) of her in the USA. Can you help me? Thank You,
