Re: Margolioth/Margulies rabbinic family from Galicia #rabbinic #galicia

I don't know if this is helpful but there is a rabbinic family tree that can be found at and goes back to Posen in the 1500's. It does not go beyond the mid 1800's.
In my mother's family tree I have Rabbi Samuel Hirsch Margulis (1858-1922). He was chief Rabbi in Florence, Italy, and there is a lot of information about him. My mother actually met him on a number of occasions in Berlin, where she lived.
I would be interested in finding out if there is any relationship between him and the people that you are researching. Apparently the name of Rabbi Samuel's ancestors was spelled Margolioth, but I have no names other than his wife, Recha Rosenthal Margulies, my mother's aunt.
