Hello. I'm new to the GerSIG list. My name is Deborah Blankenberg, and
I live in Lodi, California, USA. My native language is English.
I am researching my maternal line in Germany. My mother was Charlotte
BLOCH, born in Sulingen, Niedersachsen. Her father, Iwan BLOCH, was
born in Sulingen in 1878; her mother, Toni BLOCH, was born in 1885 in
Twistringen, Niedersachsen. My grandparents' fathers, Heinrich BLOCH
(born 1843 in Sulingen) and Julius BLOCH (born 1845 or 1853 in
Twistringen), were brothers; they were sons of Jacob BLOCH (born 1809
in Bassum, Niedersachsen) and Eva HEINEMANN (born 1809). Heinrich's
wife (Iwan's mother) was Eva COHN (born 1848 in Seesen,
Niedersachsen), and Julius' wife (Toni's mother) was Rosette
GOLDSCHMIDT. Jacob's parents were Jonas Jonathan BLOCH (born 1761 in
Schwihau-Svihov, Bohemia) and Roeschen/Roschen (o umlaut) RIS (born
1772). Jonas' father, whose date and place of birth I do not know also
was named Jacob BLOCH.
My JGFF Researcher ID number is 613395.
