Glickman Family Genealogy

I'm breaking my family genealogy first into my father's and then my mother's sections as you can see below.  The first starts with grandmother Bella Schwartz's Romanian family since I know nothing of grandfather Julius Glickman's Russian side. However, I do have some anecdotal information and have traced his movement from Romania to England and in the US.  I will eventually provide a link to that.

To the best of my knowledge:

Bella was the eldest of five daughters of Zalman and Pessa Schwartz of Jassy (Iasi) Romania.  She, Goldie, and Rebecca migrated to the US from approximately 1900 to 1920, eventually settling in Rochester, NY, New York City, and Providence, RI, respectively. Sofia and Eva stayed in Romania.
I was told their was a brother Nathan who emigrated to Montreal and changed his name to Norman. He was married. There is a listing in the (1911?) Canadian census.

The photos below start with what I believe are Zalman and Pessa's parents and proceed to their five daughters.  Links will then take us to each of their families.  Six generations are represented.

Perhaps someone can correct and anecdote the scant information I am presenting.  This can be done via (anonymous) comment, or by contacting me directly (both preferably).
