JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom Looking for Jewish roots from England via Philadelphia or New York #unitedkingdom


Richard Gilbert <gilbert67@...>
 

Hello!

My name is Richard Gilbert. I was born in NJ in 1967 to Paul Alfred
Gilbert, who was born in NJ in 1927 to Joseph Gilbert, who was born in May
1888.

Family folklore has it that Joseph was born to a Jewish family in
Philadelphia that had emigrated >from England (possibly London, possibly
elsewhere). Joseph might have been born in New York.

Supposedly he renounced his Judaism in the 1920s when he joined a Masonic
group.

My father was raised a Lutheran, possibly due to his mother's heritage.

Is there anything you can do to help me research this side of my family?

Thank you very much!

Sincerely,
Richard Gilbert
