About Celia Besser

For maiden name of Celia, see Find A Grave. This needs to be verified.

From Find A Grave:

  • Birth: Feb. 26, 1864 Krakow, Malopolskie, Poland
  • Death: Jul. 28, 1942

According to various U.S. Census records, she arrived in 1897. We know Isadore was in Krakow, so assume that the marriage was arranged there or even took place there and was made official again in the U.S.

This may or may not be the right marriage certificate (should order it):
