Hi Maureen - have you tried Searching all members trees? Top right under 'Search' ?

A location would be helpful and/or place of birth.

+++DetEcTive+++ Report 17 Oct 2015 12:26

Not getting anything for a Rachel, apart from London ER with Bloomberg as a married surname. eg

Name: Rachel Bloomberg
Year: 1920
County or Borough: Tower Hamlets
Ward or Division/Constituency: Shoreditch and Stepney
Street address: 15 Cressy Houses
Dependent of Abraham Bloomberg

You don't appear to have your family on a tree on here - it does help other people make contact with you. In this instance, its impossible for anyone to help find the correct family in census by checking your own entry.


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 17 Oct 2015 12:35

Is this your ancestor' marriage?

Name: Rachel Bloomberg
Registration Year: 1887
Registration Quarter: Jan-Feb-Mar
Registration district: London City
Inferred County: London
Volume: 1c
Page: 112

Married either Hyman Klenovich or Lewis Nemousky


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 17 Oct 2015 12:50

PM sent to Maureen advicing how she can return and add to the thread.

Before we go any further, we do need some sort of clarification

Rambling Report 17 Oct 2015 13:16

Probably best for helpers to know that the Bloomberg link is from this marriage ( as per thread on husband ) though not directly related to this search

Minnie ( Miriam) Abramovitz ( Nee Bloomberg) Minnie Abramontz ( mistrans on FMP 1911) Wife - Female Shop Keeper Of Tin And Enamel 31 1880 Birmingham Warwick Transcription

Maureen is looking for descendents of siblings to Minnie ( Miriam).


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 17 Oct 2015 13:52

Possible death for Lazarus?

Deaths Dec 1915 (>99%)
Bloomberg Lazarus 75 Edmonton 3a 563

Found this thread re that death

lol just realised it's a current thread and assume that's Brigid from here posting? Do remember to check that thread then also.


Rambling Report 17 Oct 2015 14:35

Re Nathan, from that thread , just to prevent duplicating

"Nathan called himself Francis Nathaniel Bloomberg and married Fanny Posner in Q1 1895 London City. They had a son named Henry Percy Bloomberg, b. 1896 in Stoke Newington.

Abraham (later known as Alfred) married Catherine 'Kate' Zwart in Q2 1892 London City. They had at least two children:

Harry Percy Bloomberg, b. 1892 Burton-on-Trent
Violet Stella or Stella Violet Bloomberg, b. 1905 Hackney

Samuel and Ezekiel are very elusive."


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 17 Oct 2015 15:02

It's a pity Maureen or Bridget (is Alisoun involved? ) hadn't posted the Rootschat URL. It would have saved at least on hour of blundering around in the dark.
Thank you RRose for finding it.


Rambling Report 17 Oct 2015 15:32

I was just googling for Lazarus DET, I noted the death was Edmonton and I was looking for some sites I'd used before for graves there.

I'm away for a couple of days so wanted to see if I could find something before I go lol.


Rambling Report 17 Oct 2015 15:37

Old message but interesting! Appears to be a relative....

"My Great Grandfather, Adolph Rich married Fanny Bloomberg at Hambro Synagogue on 15th August 1888."

and an earlier one from the same person


Rambling Report 17 Oct 2015 15:50

AND this one which has something interesting about Emanuel Abramovitz


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 17 Oct 2015 15:56

As Brigid says on the Rootschat thread 'I write to the Granddaughter of Fanny', is it worth following through with the Adolph Rich/ Fanny Bloomberg line? Not until someone tells us who is still unaccounted for


Rambling Report 17 Oct 2015 16:08

Yes DET, really need Maureen to come back and say who is missing :-) My guess is that Ezekial may have changed his name.


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 17 Oct 2015 16:20

Most if not all of them are absent after 1901 - considering the original thread on FA, the others may have changed their names as well.

Might they have emigrated under a new one? Something to consider
