Generations Past


These pages are for posting old treasures you want to share with other family members. 

We have received old pictures, documents, and bits of information about our common ancestors dating back as far as the mid-1800's. 

For those of you who don't know who the people in these pages are, or who need reminding, Herz Herzberg and Jenny Pollock Herzberg were the parents of Hettie Herzberg ("Bockie").   Jacob Miller and Rosa Stein Miller were the parents of Simon Miller ("Daddy Fahler"),   Hettie and Simon got married and became the parents of Jean, Claire, and Prue Miller.
