Family history

My late husband's grandfather was Rudolph Weis, who immigrated from Germany in 1902. He ran a bakery at 4644 Thompson Street and I think lived at 2748 N 45th Street.

His wife was Barbara Haas Weis.

Where would you suggest I try and find information on them?

re: Family history

You could try looking for them in U.S. census lists, Philadelphia city directories, church records, or perhaps even state vital records. HSP has a wide variety of family history resources that may help. You can learn more about our genealogy collections here:

Good luck!
