  • 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:
      YL 002 shows birth 1913 and d. 1974, md. to Wile.
      HG016 shows b. 1903.

      2. 1930 US Census: Manhattan, New York, shows Irving Herzenberg, age 26, b. in Germany with both parents also born in Germany, imm. 1905, working as a bookkeeper cashier. Not sure if this is the right one or not.

      3. Social Security Death Index: Irving Herzenberg, b. 20 Dec 1913, d. Jul 1974, ssn 055-03-9683 iss. in NY bef. 1951. I don't believe this is the right Irving per my notes above.

      5. 22 Aug 2009 Ron Lapid wrote: My grand mother's sister Lydia/Liba Raivid married Adolph (Abraham Elchanan) Herzenberg. They had three sons: Leo, Gabriel Willy and Irving Herzenberg. They were first cousins of my late father. Leo had a daughter Lilly. Lilly married Julius Farkas and they had a son Daniel. I am in close contact with Dani, and in fact he and his wife Dalia had dinner here last night. On Dani's behalf I am extending my efforts
      beyond the descendants of Adolph and Lydia.
