Dear Researchers, Members,
My Grandfather Ephriam GORDON stated in his naturalisation papers
(Londonderry, Ireland 1899) that he was born September 1872 at Libau in
Kurland, son of Abraham GORDON (son, I believe, of Ephraim) and Lina
(DAVIDOW). I’m told he had a sister with two children who moved to Vilna
before WWII and an older brother David who arrived in Londonderry
some years before to establish the family business before leaving for South Africa.
My research so far has found nothing at all and I wonder if anyone has come
across a GORDON family from Libau? I am the last of my family having very little
information and I would be very grateful if anyone has any information. My very
recent Ancestry DNA test provided no close matches.
Londonderry, Northern Ireland
