  • Notes 
    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. Website of Peter Bruce Herzenberg of London, England (since relocated to South Africa). Website is no longer functioning as of 7 Aug 2007. Copies of much of his data from the website in my possession. He indicates references by codes, which pertain to the original source and file held in his database, which I have not seen. I have no key to the sources except HL is Leonardo Herzenberg, HG is Gail Herzenberg, PC is probably Piltene Cemetery records, LA is probably Latvian Archives, FA is probably Aleksandrs Feigmanis (Latvian researcher hired by Harold Hodes), and YL is Len Yodaiken (Israeli researcher hired by Harold Hodes); however, he lists the main researchers and their contributions in a lengthy report which I include in full in the notes of the earliest Herzenberg of this database. In regards to this individual:
      HG017 shows Hyman (Hymie) living in Jerusalem, Israel, md. to Tauby. Children: Marie, Moshe (Moses), Linda, Joy Beth.

      2. Geni.com website of Binni Lewis 18 Aug 2007 . Has no dates nor places but lists children of Chaim Leib and Toby (Taube) Lewis as Joy Beth m. Gardin, Linda m. Grossbard, Moshe, and Shnayer.

      3. Len Yodaiken in his paid research report "The Herzenbergs of Piltene and Liepaja Latvia," 1 Jan 2000, notes five Lewis children born of this marriage: Stanley, Moshe, Linda, Joy Beth, and Nicole.

      4. Per his son Shayner, Hyman was a third generation American from Washington DC area.
