I am researching the family of Abraham and Sarah Goldberg who lived first on the
Lower East Side of Manhattan and then in Brooklyn in the early 1900s with their six
children: Rosy, Jacob, Isaac aka Isadore, Ruby aka Rueben aka Robert, Benjamin aka
Barney aka Barnard and Samy aka Samuel Goldberg.
While for three of these children, I have unearthed a good deal of information
(including birth, marriage, and death records) for four of them I can find very
little other than a mention in a census.
I would, as always, appreciate your input and suggestions for trying to find
further additional information about these men, especially any living relatives:
(1) Isaac or Isadore or "Izzy" Goldberg, born in London, England, is 2 with a birth
date of January 1898 on the 1900 Census, 8 on the 1905, 13 on the 1910, 17 on the
1915, and 22 on the 1920. Then he seems to disappear. Searches were done for him on
NYC Marriage Indexes and NYC Death Indexes, online and at the NYC Municipal
Archives, but no further trace of him was found. I have been told he may have had a
family in Connecticut.
(2) Ruby/Rubin/Bubby/Rueben (or Robert?) Goldberg, born in New York, is an infant
on the 1900 US Census with a birthdate of Dec 1900. He is 5 on the 1905 NY Census,
11 on the 1910 US Census, 15 on the 1915 NY Census, and 20 on the 1920 US Census I
have searched for him on NYC Marriage Indexes and NYC Death Indexes, online and at
the NYC Municipal Archives, but the only other possible sighting for him might be
a mention of a son, Robert, who is named as the one employing the undertaker on the
1936 death certificate for his father.
(3) Benjamin /Barney/Barnard Goldberg, born in NYC, is 2 on the 1905 NY Census, 7
on the 1910 US Census, 11 on the 1915 NY Census, 16 on the 1920 US Census, and 21
on the 1925 NY Census, all suggesting he was born between 1903 and 1904. Despite
searching for him in the NYC Grooms Index and the NYC Death Index at the NYC
Municipal Archives and online no additional documents or data has been discovered.
(4) Sam or Samuel Goldberg was 3 on the 1910 NY, 8 on the 1915 NY Census, 12 on the
1920 US Census, and 18 on the 1925 NY State Census. An extracted NYC Birth
Certificate citation found for him on FamilySearch gives his birth date as 25 Mar
1907.Though searches were done of possible Marriage Indexes and Death Indexes at
the NYC Municipal Archives as well as online searches and a search for a possible
Social Security Death Index listing no further records were found for him.
I'm hoping someone out there knows something about one or more of these Abramowitz
brothers and their descendants....
