Surname Saturday: Seeking Sibs of Tillie Jacobs Mahler

Looking for the Jacobs family! Great-grandma Tillie Rose (Jacobs) Mahler lived to nearly 100 years old, as I've noted in earlier posts. On her death cert, her son Morris Mahler said that Tillie's father was Julius Yaina (which may be his first and middle names). 
Where and when Tillie and her husband Meyer Mahler (my g-grandpa) met and married, I've no idea, but it was somewhere in the area of Latvia. Meyer and Tillie brought their two oldest children (Henrietta and David) to New York with them before 1900. Unfortunately, no one in the family has any idea about Tillie's siblings or her mother's name, but I hope to learn more about this matriarch's ancestors in the future.
