My g.grandfather, Abraham Granard, was born in Tomashow, Poland in about
1854/55. His wife, Ester Rosenblum was born in Plock, Poland in about
1860/64. They arrived in this country between 1884 and 1887. They lived
in Germany between about 1881 and 1884, and had 3 children there: Rosie,
Ester, and Phoebe. The place of birth of the children on the 1891 uk
census looks like "Thoron Germany". Using shtetl seeker on Jewish Gen the
nearest matches I've found to this are Thoren, and Thossen.
Does anyone have any information on "Thoron" - or on how I might obtain
birth records >from here? - these might help to find my g.grandfather's
original surname. I have a suspicion that it might be Granat as I found
lots of these in the Tomashow records - but I have no proof. My
g.grandfather remarried in the 1920's and gave his father's name as Joseph
Any help/information would be appreciated.
