My father remembers his father telling him possibly in the 1930s
that his uncle was the Chief Rabbi of Utrecht or Rotterdam but my
dad didn't know his name. >from the net I see that the Chief Rabbi
was Justus TAL. Does anyone know about his lineage, where his family
was >from originally or where I can research further? The only family
names I know >from that side are NATHAN, NATHANBERG, TOBIAS, and
MACHTUS. The families I know about were liivng in Latvia in the mid
1850s through 1911 and possibly Lithuania before that.
