About Ida Urdangen

I believe she was born 1877 or 1878. From the passenger manifest, the youngest child of Judel and Malie Fryer was Chaya age 5 in 1883. That matches the below hypothesis that Etlya born 1877 is Ida.

HYPOTHESIS: Found her birth record! [May 2024, thanks to all the wonderful work by the Ukraine Research Division]
