My grandmother Sylvia Goldman (Hesselson) referred to her always as "Anna", but <private> Berry's records from his side refer to her as "Annie". Both names may have been used.
Anyone know any definitive information about her real (legal) name?

We recently learned a bit about another legal name fiasco by using census records and death notices where the protagonist was a relative who would be mentioned. I have a full text search subscription to the New York Times, so if you think Anna "Annie" Castin might have been written up there, and have a rough date of death, I can look.

I will ask the "older" relatives on this side of the family.
