ZIMBLER - Lazarus (Eliezer) and Rose/Rosie (Raizel) - London 1911 #lithuania #latvia #unitedkingdom


Eliezer and Raizel are my great great grandparents on my father's side. They were living in Mount Street, Whitechapel, London in 1911 with their 10-month old daughter Rebecca (Sarah). Eliezer may have died in 1936, but in any case they were bombed out of Whitechapel during WWII and ended up in Leicester, where Rose (as she was then known) opened a deli in Highfields Street.

But that's all we know. The 1911 census states that Raizel came from Kovno, Lithiania, but we don't have her maiden name. Eliezer also came from Russia, but it's hard to decipher the census writing. Looks like it could be Tucham or Iuchan?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
