About Our Family Research
My name is David A. Widman and I'm looking for any information on Bernard Widman. Bernard Widman, wife Regina, came from Germany to America around 1880-1890 (?) and settled in the N.Y.City area. Information passed down is that Bernard was a principal of a school in Berlin before coming to the States? He supposedly had a brother, Al, and two sisters, all older than Hugo. He had a son Hugo Leopold (my grandfather,supposedly raised in the Yorkville (upper East side of Manhattan) area of N.Y.C., born Dec.31,1895 and a grandson Manuel (my father), born 7-30-1926 in N.Y.City, specifically the Bronx.
