Samuel (my grgrgrandfather) m. Leah ?? also from Austria and has 4 children:
1. Jenny m. Sam
2. Harry m. Dora
3. Emil (my grgrandfather) m. Dora Brown whose parents were Barnet and Gertrude Brown from Russia. I'm sure the name was changed
4. Ben

2. Ethel
3. Sam
4. Irene

Leo and Sally have 2 sons one of whom is my father.

Samuel was widowed and married a woman Celia Goldman with 2 children of her own, Sadie and Henrietta. Samuel and Celia then have 4 children together:
1. Flo

I know certain names after that but would love to have anyone add to this. I know that some relatives were taken by the Nazis and that others lost contact after the war.
