TANNENBAUM Family from Harmuthsachsen #germany

Linda Shefler
 

Is anyone familiar with the family of Joseph and Fredericka (nee DIEFENBACH)
TANNENBAUM of Harmuthsachsen? I just received information that finally
connects Fredericka with the rest of my DIEFENBACH family and am now anxious
to find out if there are any descendants >from this family.

I am aware of two children who died young, Jettchen and Salomon, who both
died in the early 1840s.

The third child that I know of, Hannchen (1839-1869), married into my MARX
family by marrying her first cousin. She died in childbirth with what I
believe was her only child. That child was named after her; Hannchen MARX
was born in 1869 in Sterbfritz and married someone named SCHUSTER. She
perished in the Holocaust and I don't know anything about her descendants.

I am anxious to know if anyone is aware of who Hannchen married and if there
are descendants >from her and Unknown SCHUSTER.

I am also anxious to know if anyone is familiar with the family of Joseph
and Fredericka of Harmuthsachsen.

Please respond privately to: linda.shefler@gmail.com

As always, many thanks! Linda Silverman Shefler, Hod HaSharon, Israel

ROSENBERGER Family from Wiesenfeld #germany

Linda Shefler
 

I found a post in Rootsweb >from 2003 where someone responded to a post by
Edwin ROSENBERGER of White Plains, NY. Unfortunately, I cannot locate
Edwin's initial post nor can I seem to locate any contact information for
him.

In his post Edwin stated that his father Siegfried ROSENBERGER came >from the
town of Wiesenfeld in Bavaria, Germany. I have reason to believe that Edwin
descends >from my GRUNEBAUM family and I would very much like to connect with
him. If anyone knows Edwin and can put me in touch with him I would be most
appreciative. At the same time, if anyone is familiar with the ROSENBERGER
family of Wiesenfeld I would love to hear >from you. Please respond privately.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Naturalization papers and change of name in the UK #general

Ben Forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Dear All

If a person changed their name prior to naturalisation they would need to
have their original name included on the naturalisation paper as this was the
name with which they were originally registered on entry to the country and would
be registered with the police.

This assumes that the individual did register their arrival in the country and
was registered with the police, I have a naturalisation form for an ancestor of
mine who was born in Latvia and known as Aaron Ortchik Gever, on his
naturalisation he is Harris Silverman, their is no mention of the prvious name on
the naturalisation certificate.

In reply to Jaqueline Davis' questions re UK naturalisation in the 1900's
and changing family names prior to naturalisation.

2. In the UK there would be nothing to stop a person calling themselves
by a name of their choosing at anytime. There is a standard legal process
which is still applicable today - but in English Common Law it is not
necessary to follow that process. Information on this can be found at:
