It's been a long time since I last reached out for help
with my family tree.....My father was Jacob (Yacov) SHEMARYA
son of Yehoshua (Joshua) , born in Rhodes. In the past week,
I somehow found a record of the grave of Rabbi Yacov Shemaria
in Salonica, who passes away 15 Av 5389 (Aug 4, 1629). My
grandfather, Yehoshua, son of Yacov, passed away in 1919. I'm
not exactly sure what to make of this as there are two Yacov's
in the Rhodes cemetary that could be my great grandfather...one
passed away in 5660, the other in 5675. Incidentally, I have
no way, for sure, of knowing who were the male siblings of my
grandfather, Yehoshua. I'd be interested hearing >from other
members of the Shemaria/Shemarya families to exchange information.

Hi Albert

I also had a family - NEHAMA - that lived in Salonika. Can you tell me where
did you find the record of your ancestor's grave and are there more records
to look at?
