• Need help establishing family ties - FROST and COHEN

    I've just found a new cousin through Ancestry. Her mother Clara Frost was born and placed for adoption at the charity hospital on Blackwell's Island in NYC
    in 1907. Per Clara's birth certificate, her parents were Fannie Frost and Samuel. Clara was adopted and raised in Minnesota.

    My grandmother's maiden name was Pauline Frost and she did have an older sister Fannie (about 10 years age difference). This Fannie married Samuel Cohen and they had a son Leon who was my dad's 1st cousin. I haven't been able to find this Cohen family in any NYC census although I've been told that they lived in the lower east side. The Frost family immigrated from Kolomea. Fannie was in NY by 1907. Pauline arrived circa 1911 along with her mother Pearl. They first lived in San Francisco (where Pauline married my GF, Sigmund Fireman) and then moved to NYC by 1913.

    I am looking for any information about Pauline and/or Fannie i.e. immigration, info that will link them as sisters, and anything that may shed more light on Clara's adoption/confirmation of parentage.

    Thank you very much in advance.
