Any chance you could find anything on Emanuel Bloom?
Hi there again. First of all I’d like to thank whoever it was found my great grandfather’s parents. But now I need your help again. I’m now looking for my x2 great grandfather, Eli P. Bloom (1886-1967) any of his relatives if possible. There was some war according to my grandmother and it was against Jewish people or something in Russia and Eli had siblings and a pair of parents. Emanuel or Emmanuel Bloom was Eli’s father and I think he worked as a lawyer for the tsar (Nikolas, yes seriously, the king who was executed with his family). And he had a sister, Rebecca that may have survived but we’re not certain.
As far as what any of my family members know, Eli was born in Odessa, Russia. He was about somewhere between 11 and 13 when his family put him on a ship bound for the United States. He was the youngest child. If you can find anything on Emanuel or Emmanuel Bloom (born in Russia too). And or his sister, Rebecca I’d appreciate it. If it’s possible. I know the chances are probably pretty slim as there was a conflict going on in that period. Any lead will be helpful.
