Hello GerSig
I have just signed up. I have been doing my family tree for several
years now. I am not expert but somewhere like "intermediate", I suppose,
But re German Jewish Genealogy I guess I am a beginner.
I live in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, England and my native language
is English. re computers and the Internet - I am probably intermediate.

I have the birth and death dates of my grandparents, Julia BLANCKENSEE
and John SILVERSTON.
For my great grandfather, Moses BLANCKENSEE, I have his birth date and
place, marriage certificate, naturalisation document, and death
certificate
My great grandmother was Mary Ann LAZARUS, I have her marriage and death
certificate.

My goal is to find out more about the acquiring of the name BLANCKENSEE

Also any more information about Moses parents; it looks as if they were called LEVY
On the marriage certificate for Moses BLANCKENSEE and Mary Ann, it gives
Moses'es father's sname as Lewin Moses LEVY
My JGFF Researcher ID number is 260161
I have entered the following names and towns in the JGFF
BLANCKENSEE and BLSNKENSEE - Wielen Poland
LEVY - Wielen Poland
I also have ancestors as follows
SCHULTZE - Warsaw and then Exeter, UK in 1841, a jeweller
SILVERSTON - Poland and then Exeter, UK 1830, jeweller and silversmith
BLANCKENSEE - Wielun, Poland (was Filehne, Prussia) and Bristol, England
in 1827, merchant and then jeweller
