Is Wolf Goldblatt a rabbi? You obviously have a lot of family pictures which is wonderful -- and you evidently are very organized! Dorothy

I just saw your comment from September. You can see that I rarely go to this site. I really haven't figured out how to use the program! How did all of the other people find you, and are they all relatives? I don't know where to begin. Do you think you receive more information from this web site than you do on ancestry.com? Dorothy

Sue,
When coming to Columbus you might want to visit the Columbus Metropolitan Library (www.columbuslibrary.org/genealogy). We have a significant genealogy collection for Ohio and many other states. We now have the genealogy collections formerly at the State Library of Ohio, Palatines to America Society, and the Franklin County Genealogical and Historical Society. Currently our hours are Monday-Thursday 9-9, Fri-Sat 9-6, Sunday's 1-5. After September 6th they'll be Mon-Thur 10-8, Fri-Sat 10-4 and Sunday 1-5. The other place to do research is the Ohio Historical Society (http://www.ohiohistory.org/resource/archlib). Currently, their hours are Thursdays 1-9, Fri-Sat 9-5. I think you mentioned Fairfield county as a place where some of your ancestors lived. If so, the Fairfield County Chapter of OGS has a wonderful library as well (http://www.fairfieldgenealogy.org/library/library.html). If you have time to eat during your research trip you might try some of the following places. Schmidts (http://www.schmidthaus.com/) is a German restaurant in German Village which is a nice place to walk around and see well preserved homes built by Columbus' German immigrant population. Schiller Park is a few blocks from Schmidts if you need to walk off some of the good German food. Don't leave Schmidt's without trying their creampuffs. For microbreweries check out this site Ohio Brewpubs and MIcrobreweries (http://www.beer100.com/brewpubs_o_to_z/ohio.htm). Barleys Brewing and Elevator Brewing are both good. Pubcrawler lists a few places in Columbus as well (http://www.pubcrawler.com/Template/searchwc.cfm/flat/zipcode=43201/distance=25/title=Columbus,%20Ohio). Mac's Cafe on High street is good as well. They have Scottish food, burgers and more. If you have any questions let me know. I'm the genealogy subject specialist at Columbus Metropolitan Library. Russ

hey sue, its been a busy one for us as well, i'm trying to get in as much "family time" w/marissa as possible as she's leaving in less than 3 weeks. . we went camping and hiking in the Sequoias last week, it was wonderful, and this week we rented a house in san diego. . mark and sue and emma come into town soon, maybe we can have a family get together BBQ at our house next week. . are you in town?

Marilyn, your comment illustrates how family stories have elements of truth in the myths.My grandma Rosie said her father swam for 5 days to escape from Russia during the pograms and invented the matzo machine.She also said they were from White Russia which during the McCarthy era I thought meant "not Communist",but she meant they were from Belarus which was true.

Samuel Lederer was certainly a tanner or "currier of wool" as one census said.He didn't found New Brunswick,NJ,but his factory was there...probably way out of town because it must have been very smelly.

my mother's first counsin's child, Flora Anne Fry has done some research on Samuel Lederer and states she think s he was a leather curer and not a farmer as I thought. Also I was told that he, my great great grandfather founded New Brunswick New Jersey. My mother was Rose Lederer Bayer's daughter, whose father was Sam (if I can be so familiar. I am only the 4th generation from him, I think.
