Jeff, you may not know that when Grandma and Grandpa returned together (with infant Dad) from their trip to Europe in 1930, Grandpa was allowed through Customs but Grandma was detained due to irregularities in her documents. (Dad, born in NY, had no problem.) They threatened to deport Grandma back to Europe even though she had been here since age 5. This was a traumatic situation for Grandma, who described it to me decades later. Grandpa somehow made it right and they returned home.
