Can I just say thank you to the administration, the volunteers, and my fellow members for making this site possible.

I'm hoping there is someone out there who is able to carry out a lookup for me.
To do this correctly you need access to the files of the Great Synagogue of London.
In 1875 Benjamin Hart married Matilda Solomon in the Great Synagogue of London. They would have 4 English born children before migrating to Australia.
Zalig, Benjamin's father stayed in England with his wife Hannah [Ben's mother] to carry on the fishmonger operation.
What do I want to know? Well just about anything that becomes available. I suspect Hannah was Zaligs second spouse. How many children was there all up and who were they.
Living in Australia and on a pension with exchange rates makes it near impossible for me to get this type of information.
I would happily share with anyone who has a interest.
My regards from Oz, Ray

Thank you very much for getting back. Mary Ann does come up now and again. But I have not been able to clarify one point, did Zalig have a first wife Mary Ann, something happens such her passing away, then at a later date he marries Hannah, the name that appears on the marriage certificate of Zalig's son Benjamin.
Regards, Rayh

Hi Ray H,

If this is the marriage for Zalig Hart and Hannah Myers Sept 1/4 year 1870 London City then you would be looking for a death between 1861 and 1870 for Mary Ann.
