In Reply to: Phila. Russian Jews Late 1800's by Gold of 620

I do not know if this is a link or not. My grandmother is Martha Gold Spear. Her middle name Gold is because she decended from a family by the name of Gold in England. My grandmother said they were Jewish but convereted to Christian. Others have told me they were called Gold because of their blonde hair. I don't know how true that is, as blonde is not a primary hair color in my lineage.

I am looking for proof one way or the other.
