He was a merchant married to Amalie nee Altman. She had a brother Max who was a successful physician who helped introduce smallpox innoculations with Dr. Jenner. She had other Michaelson relatives, Clara a pianist, Hedwig and Anna who were both art historians, and Grete who was an author under the psuedonym Ernest Gregory (Die Berliner Range). Bernhard had 3 children Martha, Clara and Albert my grandfather. He disappeared in 1859 and was never found. Until then he worked with shipping agents Richard Boas & co, later transfering to London as their agent for some 10 years, then onto Barcelona, Bordeaux, and finally Belgrade where he achieved some considerable success. Bernhard had a brother Louis  who in turn had 3 sons, Richard, Emil and Ludwig who all worked in the Hamburg-Amerika line. Emil later headed the company in New York where with wife Harriett they had son Herbert who in turn had 2 children before he died in action in WW1. Albert meanwhile married Clara nee Huldschinsky b,1873, a successful steelmill family from Gleiwitz. My great grandfather Siegfried Huldschinsky came from Oels in upper Silesia b,1832, d,in Glewitz 1920. He married Bertha nee Ring who in turn came from a huge family with 21 siblings, so somwhere there is a huge family network on my maternal family side. Does anyone have knowledge regarding these families please?

Hi, please email me privately. My husband's family also came from Gleiwitz and his great great grandfather was Siegfried Huldschinsky. I have done a lot of family history. Perhaps we can share?
