  • 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:
      HG016 shows Janice Wile b. 15 May 1913, d. Nov 1982.

      3. From Ron Lapid's email dated 3 Aug 2010 (Ron's ancestor was the sister to Lydia Raivid):
      "Irving (Isaac)6 Herzenberg (Lydia (Liebe)5 Raivid, Dov (Ber/Berel) Zussman4, Abram3, Yankel2, Abram1) was born 03 Nov 1903, and died 27 Apr 1964 in New York. He married JanICE WILE 04 Feb 1937 in New York City, daughter of OSCAR WILE and LILLI STEINHARDT. She was born 15 May 1913 in New York, and died 07 Nov 1982 in Burlington, VT.
      Notes for Irving (Isaac) Herzenberg: Was first of siblings to come to US. 22.7.1922- Arrived in NY aboard "Lituania" which sailed from Copenhagen. He signed on and boarded in Libau (3 July 1922) and was part of the crew- "mess boy." Age 19. Jumped ship in NY. 18.6.1929. Admitted (naturalised) NY- age 25= born 1904. 1955- Isaac, Janice, Linda & Carol sail to the UK. Always known as Irving. Notes for JanICE WILE: SSN 134-36-5733.
      Children of Irving Herzenberg and JanICE WILE are:
      i. Linda7 Herzenberg, b. 21 Jun 1942, New York.
      ii. CAROL Herzenberg, b. 08 May 1944, New York."

      1. Several of the passenger manifests noted above show Janice's father being born in New York City where he remains all his life. The same manifest show her as being born in New York. I make the assumption that New York City is her birthplace as well.

      1. Date and place are unsubstantiated guesses only by Kerry Petersen.
