This Old and New Testament bible was purchased from an online reseller. It’s covers have fallen off and many pages have separated from the binding. Yet, inside is the gift of a hand written family history. Most is in English, but some names are reprinted in what looks to be Hebrew, reflecting the Jewish heritage of many in the family.
It begins with the births Ida Erlich born in Prussia in 1834 and Philip Dzialynski born in Poland in 1833. The family moves to Florida and later some move to Georgia.
Want to help? If you copy the bible pages, please consider transcribing a page or two and submitting the transcriptions here. It will help other family members search the contents! Go to Catch the GG Spirit
UPDATE: We’ve been so fortunate to have contributions by J. Bunch! He’s provided transcriptions, photographs, and a GED.Com file for the family!
Thank you JB!!
JB has question for other family historians. He’s looking to clarify the following entries in the history:
The following are the names of individual on the sheets that I have no information on or have no concrete documentation to support who they are related to:
Ralph W. Cohen – I am not 100% who he is related to but have a pretty good idea.
Auguste Leiser – I have no idea who this person this and how he/she is related to the family.
Isaac Ehrlich & Henrietta Kauffman – I have a good idea how they are connected to the family but have no solid documentation to prove it.
Rudolph Ehrlich & Hanchen Dzialynski – I have good idea how they are connected to the family but no solid documentation to prove it.
H. Berlack & Hanchen Ehrlich - I have good idea how they are connected to the family but no solid documentation to prove it.
Maurice R. Cohen & Ida Williams – I have good idea how they are connected to the family but no solid documentation to prove it.
