London and Middlesex / Re: Grzimish family: Jewellers Aldgate & Islington
« on: Sunday 08 July 12 06:04 BST (UK)  »
HI Jax 54,going by what i have been able to find in our family history ,Isidore and my great grand father Samuel where brothers.Samuel and his wife lived in Brisbane and their daughter Clara was my grandmother. Unfortunately i never got to meet her as she died very Young. Their is a lot of family history available here in Brisbane . I have never seen a picture of Samuel or his wife Emily Jane so if you have anything i would love to see them. I do have a copy of the picture of Phillip and Esther (very impressive) you have posted. I think Isidore might have lived in QLD at one stage,as you can see there has been some great help from others on this wonderful site ....Cheers HD

Thanks again Gerry, you are very helpfull.I think Baron Grimish was Samuel's nephew,the son of Isadore Grimish (i think) i have come across his name before.I am trying to find out what happened to Samuels and Janes children after the mum died thing i have been able to find thanks to all the great researchers is Clara (my gran) was at New Farm State School 1901 and so was her brother Bernard Aaron,so may be she did live in  Jewish foster care around New Farm Thanks again gee this things just get deeper and deeper don't they. CHEERS ;)

Thank you everyone for your quick replies  ;) Sorry i didn't put in to much info, i do know a little about Samuel and Emily.I have been to Toowong cemetery which was very interesting as they are surrounded by many family there which is a wealth of info as well. My interest comes from there daughter Clara,may be they were  living just with Jewish family and friends after mother died.Have been told all children went to foster care except Clara who was sent to a Industrial Home for girls???also i have never seen photos of Samuel and Emily none in our family albums .

BIG thanks to everyone who have  replied your information and leads are very welcomed  CHEERS... ;D

Thanks for your info,the reason i am searching was my dad told me i was named after her and also dads family history comes from polish Jews so it could have been just the fact she had similar background but some info i got she lived in Brissy for a very short period also as a nanny.I will still keep looking .CHEERS. ;)
