Hello fellow seekers,
My husband's grandmother, Esther ALBERT, was born in England in
March, 1887. Her birth certificate, >from the district of
Whitechapel, lists her mother as Rachel ALBERT, formerly HOSENROTT.
Subsequent U.S. census records indicate that she was >from Russia,
although my husband's mother thought she was >from Poland. I have
not been able to find the name HOSENROTT anywhere. Rachel spoke
Yiddish so it was likely the registrar could not understand her well.
Can anyone come up with a possible alternative spelling to the name
Thanks very much,
