I am most interested in family experiences and stories. My primary research
goals now are to find out:
1. To find out what happened to my great grandfather's sister, Sara,
who came to New York with him then "disappears" >from the records.
2. If there are any surviving BLOCHs directly related to my great
grandfather's family surviving in Europe.

that I have entered in the JGFF (JewishGenFamily Finder)
are my four grandparental families (listed below) and their spouses and
Presently I am pursuing a missing decade of my Alsatian, BLOCH,family
in New York City. Does anyone have an idea where Alsatian Jews who came

Would there have been a neighborhood or living accomodation where
people spoke the familiar languages of Alsace and had a similar history?
In addition to the BLOCH family of Valff, Bas Rhin, Alsace to New York
am researching: TEITELBAUM: Tarnopol, Galicia to Western Pennsylvania
1871 then to Brooklyn, New York 1890; FELLEMAN: Marken, Amsterdam, Holland
to Philadelphia 1832, then to New York and Brooklyn, NY circa 1841
GOLDSCHMIDT (GOLDSMITH): Sprendlingen, Hessen, Germany to Brooklyn, NY 1855
