JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: HYAMS family of New Orleans and Charleston #general


Thanks to the meticulous genealogy work of Rabbi Malcolm Stern, the answer to
Joyce's question can be found in his well-known publication "First American Jewish
Families", which is now searchable on the web-site of the American Jewish Archives:

On the Hyams family tree: we can find the Hannah
HYAMS sought. She is the daughter of Henry HYAMS [b. 1793 London] and Judith
UNKNOWN, middle of the page, slightly to the right. Hannah was born in 1838 and
was married to Alexander NORDHAUS.
