This site features offspring of my Great Great Great grandparents Hayim BLUM & Eiddel WOLF of Kleinsteinach Bavaria and those of my Great, Great, Great grandfather Joseph SIMSON of Kirsch Brombach, Odenwald, Hessen.
Many of the children of Hayim & Eiddel Blum immigrated to Philadelphia prior to 1840. In Philadelphia, my Great Great Grandmother, Mary Blum met Henry Simson and they were married at Rodeph Shalom Congregation around 1838.
I will not be including a traditional family tree. Instead my family tree is a "graphic" of my family tree. It includes pictures and some biographical information. So, click on the Simson and Blum family trees under the picture section and you will be able to view my trees as very long "pictures".
