Siegmund Salomon Rothschild, 17 July 1818 – 7 September 1877

Up until a couple years ago, I believed Siegmund and his wife had one son, and that was it. Then, out of the blue, I was contacted by a new-to-me cousin, Andy Selig, who let me know not only did Siegmund also have a daughter, but provided me with family photos, and information on 5Continue reading “Siegmund Salomon Rothschild, 17 July 1818 – 7 September 1877”

Solke Stern Rosenmeyer, 1803 – ?

First of all, I’d like to apologize for the long silence. Despite being toned-down, the holiday season was crazy, hectic, and stressful. Mom had pneumonia, recovered, then both parents had COVID. We saw them a few days before they were symptomatic, so we were on quarantine for awhile. Jim and I had food poisoning NewContinue reading “Solke Stern Rosenmeyer, 1803 – ?”

A Little More about Selig Stern’s Second Wife, Helene Kugelmann Stern, and Her Family

I know, I know. I said the next post would be about the 3rd Stern brother. But on Sunday evening, I received some unexpected information from Karl-Heinz Stadtler in Vöhl and just knew I needed to share it. Helene was the daughter of Joseph Kugelmann and Julie Belchen Goldenberg. Joseph and Belchen were married inContinue reading “A Little More about Selig Stern’s Second Wife, Helene Kugelmann Stern, and Her Family”

Isaak Rothschild, 1799 – 1875

As promised, this is the first post about “What’s in a Name?” When I first started building up my family tree, and using the Synagogue Vöhl website as the primary source, I started seeing some things regarding this Isaak Rothschild, and his cousin, Isaac Rothschild born in 1820, that just didn’t add up.
