GOLDBERG family query? Manchester UK
comments powered by
I've long wanted to find out more about my family but as is common - relationships deteriorate over the years and distance causes difficulties.
My father, Raphael Goldberg died in 2001.He was from Glasgow originally and moved to Manchester for business, which I understand at the time was in the clothing trade.He had two sisters.
His father was I. Goldberg...Israel or Isadore?He was a successful businessman and lived in Glasgow. I understand he was involved in theatres?
Before that?I was always told that the East End of London featured and that my family originated from Russia.
I doubt my story is unique.
I've always been proud of my heritage but never in a position to find out more about it.
I did know, and have a relationship with my Dad's two sisters for some time - but this lapsed when my father re married for a third time.
I've lost all contact with them - things became far too strained for me to maintain the link.
If they are alive, the eldest sister will be in her 80s and the other in her late 70s.for discretion, I would not like to name them in this forum.
This is a wild card but I'd be delighted to hear any information pertaining to my family and answer any questions I can.
