Thanks to the advice of a Jewish Gen member I found one branch of the
family on a Hamburg passenger list (after 3 years of looking) and then
afterwards on a ship's list for the England to North America trip. So
now I'm looking for the brother of the head of the first family with
his wife and children. When I found the first family, all of the first
names save one were a probably Yiddish or German variant of the names
that I knew, so I'm thinking the same will be true of the other family.
I am hoping, if I list the names as I know them, I might get
suggestions of other first names to look under (I'm having no luck with
the last name).
The members are: father Louis/Leib, mother Rose Rachel, children
Sam/Sender, Sadie, and Charles/Shaia. Last name was Gershengorn
anglicized to Hershorn (although on the ship's manifest for Louis's
brother the name was Hirschensohn so who knows). Family was >from the
Podolia gubernia in Ukraine.
