Schonberg Family Tree
« on: Wednesday 24 August 16 17:18 BST (UK) »
Hi. Is there anyone who can help. My mother was Ruth Dear born Schonberg @1916. She had a sister Selma Gittl Doerzbacer and a brother Ziggi Siegfried Har-Shefi Schonberg. I have their parents names Schulem Feiwel Schonberg and mother Schneidel Mattel Schonberg born Buch. I cannot find any info on them and don't know where to look. Any advice gratefully received.

I imagine, given the names, that they were probably Jewish? And the "Ziggi" is the shortened version of Siegfried?

Do you know when any of the family was born? Or where? Even if you can only narrow it to a country?

We can't post details of any living people so if any of them is, or might be still alive, please take this into consideration when you reply!

I know that they were living and working in Stuttgart when my mother was born. Before that I don't know. Thanks for your help.

Hi both. Yes my mother was married to Alan Arthur Dear and yes she died in 1983. Her sister Selma lived in Vienna. There are members of the Dear family in the UK but to my knowledge no other Schonbergs. I have traced Ziggi's family who are now living mainly in Berlin. Thanks again.

I wonder if it might be worth your posting on the Europe board here on Rootschat?
