Re: Taub Family / Canada
Hello from Israel
In my family there was a baron Taube, he was a bankier and adviser to the Zsar of Russia (the Zsar proberbly granted him the titel)He married my ggfathers sister Amalie Sack.They got 4 sons and one daughter,all the children were academics One a chemist and one or two doctors.I have somewhere in my mind that the daughter was called Emma ,but I 'm not sure.The family was extremely wealthy.My grandmother used to say they owned a third of the land of Latvia.My mother ,then a little girl remembers that everyone they passed on the streets (comming in a horse carridge) bowed deeply.
Because I have no first names ,I can't find any of them. Amalie Sacks father was Leo(Leib ,Arye, Leon ,Yehudah) The Mother was named Sarah Blumenfeld (Zabludowsky?) The father of Leo was Abraham Aba Zak (Halevi) his wife was Ester Etil .Proberbly one of the sons of the Taubes was named Abraham after the grandfather. Other names that could have been used could be used to honor the Zsarfamily like Nicolai or Siegfried ? But this is only my speculations .Have you heard similar stories in your family,then please contact me on e-mail:Pheya@actcom .co.il all the best from Pia Yair
