Wordless Wednesday - Seeking Isaac Burk's Family

One of my research priorities this year is to find out more about the family of Harold Burk's father, my paternal grandfather, Isaac Burk (1882?-1943). Above is Harold (my father), when he was in his 20s, looking impossibly young!

Did Isaac have siblings? Who was his mother? His father was Elias Burk, according to one record I found. Did my father hear stories about his father's childhood in the old country (Lithuania)? What did Dad think about and dream about when he was young? What did Isaac expect when he came to NYC?
