I think you're right DET, most frustrating!


brigid Report 22 Oct 2015 07:43

Goodness what a lot of work + progress
I didn't check here before reading find ancestors post .

I'm sorry i wasn't available when you decided to launch your initial search but do call if you have any queries ..if i can help i will ...

+ i agree that its important to summarise findings and put links to other pages on here + add them to the Rootschat page just in case someone does look up in future. ( hard for technophobes to learn all the steps how to do this .)

so pleased you found at least 1 relative to contact .

speak soon .


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 22 Oct 2015 08:50

Brigid - perhaps you could add the GR threads links to the one on Rootschat? New eyes may be able to find something we've missed.


Rambling Report 22 Oct 2015 11:33

Brigid, perhaps you can also take a look for Ezekiel?...seems to be beyond me to find him....

There are quite a few possibilities.

The one I was looking at (before himself claimed the PC) had been naturalised in NYC in 1889. Unfortunately I couldn't find him on any census with a wife Sarah who had been foreign born.


Rambling Report 22 Oct 2015 14:50

There are a few on passenger records but I must admit to not liking the way FMP has transcribed, for instance using broad search on names I came across a Sam B... now looking at the image it's crystal clear, because it's typed, that he is Sam Bloomfield , why not say so in the first place :-|


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 22 Oct 2015 15:07

Yup! It seems as if most of the Bloombergs, at least the men, went to the USA. Maybe they thought there was more opportunity for them there. I wrote to Nicholas Rich via the message link but did not find a Watch This to click on. I have also written via ordinary letter post, so will wait to see whether he wishes to make contact. I have discovered such a lot of information and now I must transcribe it all to paper.Bye for now Maureen


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 22 Oct 2015 17:25

there is no Watch This link on a personal message - any reply will appear in your Genes 'In Box'. There will a purple square above the message tab at the top of the community pages.
You'll also receive an email from Genes to your linked email address notifying you if he does reply via this site.

You could write to the Temple the Rosenbergs attended in Ohio. They may be willing to put you in conact either with Marvin or one of his children.

I keep coming back to the Phillip barnett Glukstein marriage, to Esther...I can't find anything after the marriage for Philip...but I have just found this and given her birth place I think it may be them...what doo you reckon?

I wonder if this might be the daughter Rebecca if Phillip Barnett Gluckstein also used the Barnett as surname ?

Rambling Report 22 Oct 2015 22:17

I think they did a lot of name changing, but only the certs would confirm

Rose Gluckstein seems to have been reg as Glitzenstein in Liverpool

Births Mar 1897 (>99%)
Glitzenstein Rose Liverpool 8b 90

and Raphael in Hackney

It all seems very reasonable! But as we've said before, unless Maureen is willing to buy certificates, its supposition.

Although I'd thought he might have taken the surname Barnett, it was a stroke of genius to consider it might be used as a forename. Well done Rose :-D

No image, but may be an attempt at Bloomberg?

Its not unusual to get the year of birth wrong when registering a death.
The dob of 18 Dec 1885 would fit with a registration being made early in Jan 1886.

There are other records available which need to be checked
