UPdate :Have found 8 names for ggfather's 11  full siblings
including 2 deceased in latvia

In  George's 1920 hospital admissions records  it says 9 of his siblings are still alive
1 was in Scotland ..5 were in USA

where was the eldest ?

the eldest sibling would be born after his parents marriage in 1868 but before
 ggfather; george Jacob Fellman  in 1870

One candidate is Abraham Fellman who appears on a Manchester Rate book in 1898 at Herbert Street with Abraham isaac Cohen
but can find no other ref to him .

the missing birth years on latvian records are between 1871 and 1879

If the missing 2 were girls they will be harder to find

The Jacob Fellman who keeps turning up in Lancashire + west Derby  is from Austria...


I think Rachel Fellman who died in  Manchester 1900 aged 27 b.approx1873
his sister but could be a sister in law

Most of Glasgow's Jews arrived around that time, escaping the pogroms in the Russian empire! According to David Daiches, Scottish advocate & author & son of Edinburgh rabbi Rev Daiches, they felt at home in Scotland, the only country in Europe where the Jews never suffered persecution.
