My g-g-grandfather was Wulff NATHAN, born 1802 Spandau, died 1842 Berlin.
He was the son of Nathan MEYER and Taeubchen Wolff JOACHIM. I have
Taeubchen's lineage up to the 1400 and 1500's.
Wulff NATHAN was married to Emilie HIRSCHBERG (also known as MOSSNER),
daughter of Moses HIRSCHBERG of Salzwedel. Emilie is buried at Schonhauser
Allee, Berlin and I have her burial records. Wulff's records cannot be
found, but he is probably buried there too.
As far as I can tell, my sister, my 3 nephews and myself are the only
descendants of Wulff & Emilie NATHAN.
But Wulff had 3 sisters - Amalie, Rechel and Sprinza NATHAN. Wulff was born
after Rechel and before Sprinza. All 4 siblings appear on the Kurmark
naturalisation list for Spandau. Unfortunately I have no idea if or whom
these sisters married, or if there are living descendants out there.
My next step will be to order FHL film # 477288 - Register of Jewish births,
marriages, deaths, and indexes for Berlin, Brandenburg, Germany 1812-1874,
but I understand this film, like so many, is not of good quality and hard to
read. I have had no success with any of the many films I have ordered to date!
I am wondering if there are any descendants of Amalie, Rechel or Sprinza
NATHAN out there! Or if anyone has any other ideas as to how I might find
them, then please, I'd love to hear >from you! Thank you!
