Greetings
 
I'm looking for information about Samson (Ben Reuven) Goldzihar,
Buried in the cemetery in Altona Hamburg Germany,
Date of death 11.12.1954
Was he a member of the Ashkenazi community (born in Germany)?
Or he was a member of the Portuguese community.
 
Would appreciate help
Regards
Haim Segal

I followed the link you gave. From there a few things appear :
Death year is 1654.
Family name is Goldzieher, sounds quite Ashkenazi. 
Quoted reference is from the book"Verborgene Pracht: Der jüdische Friedhof Hamburg-Altona – Aschkenasische Grabmale, Dresden: 2009, S. 171"
Here again we are dealing with an Ashkenazi person.

I hope this will help you locate more info on that person. 

Best regards,
