My great-grandfather, who was called Israel ROSENBLOOM in Baltimore,
was a blacksmith, probably in Kretinga or Plunge, in the late 1800s;
Rosenbloom was NOT his surname in Lithuania. I am looking for business
records or other records showing occupations in Kovno in hopes of
finding his Lithuanian surname.
Please contact me if:
(1) you know of any such records showing names and occupations in Kovno.
(2) you have information about the Lithuanian origins of the family
of Israel Rosenbloom (1855-1933) or his brother Solomon Rosenbloom
(1869-1942) who resided in Baltimore in the United States.
