I think you'll have to go back to Russia and Prussia to achieve that.

But the town of Blumberg in Southern Germany might also be a source.

An idea:

Setup a "Blumberg Family Mysteries" page. See examples here Family Mysteries   See page

Create a Profile for Anything

See also Surnames and create a "Blumberg Family History" page.

See an example Lechner Family History

You might be surprised as to the number of Google search results.

See also page as an example Hickory County, Missouri

The town of Blumberg in Southern Germany or any other place may likewise be setup.

See Stadt Blumberg

To link a profile (ancestor) to this page add the following at the top of the bio section

[[Category:Stadt Blumberg]]

To add text linked to this page use  [[:Category:Stadt Blumberg|Stadt Blumberg]]

The town of "Lech" is probably not to far.  ;-)

Thank u!
thank you!

For Rihanna Blumberg, re: Blumberg family

I hope I'm replying to this correctly!

My name is Hazel Blumberg-McKee, and I, too, am searching for more Blumbergs. (I am an only child.)

My father's name was Abraham Charles Blumberg. He died in Utica, New York, in May 1961. He was an art teacher with the Utica Public School System.

My father's father was Samuel Blumberg. He lived in Utica, New York, and died there. I am not sure where he was born, but I think it was in Utica. He owned a little shop--perhaps a grocery store?--with his wife. They had a number of children: Abe (the oldest, my father), Julius, Minette, Ruth, Anna, and Doris Toby (the youngest). I doubt that I have my aunts and uncles in the correct birth order.

My father's mother was Sarah Fondiller Blumberg. She was born in Lithuania and came to the US around 1911. She and Samuel Blumberg lived in Utica, New York, until both of their deaths.

If you need information on my mother's (Lillian Philipson Blumberg) side of the family, I'd be happy to supply as much as I know.

All best,

Hazel Blumberg-McKee

Hi Hazel,

me and you are Cousins! I am the grandson of Minette Blumberg (now Klein) and my middle name is actually samuel, after your grandfather and my great-grandfather. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to get in touch!
Hi, Rihanna! Which of Minette's children is your parent? I just heard from Judy Klein, one of Minette's kids, the other day, and need to write back to her, She and her husband own and run a feed store in AZ. Poor Minette has Alzheimer's--I had suspected this several years ago--and is in a memory care unit. I lived with Minette, Tom, and their kids for some months when I was a kid, and I will always be grateful to them for taking me in. I have lived in Tallahassee, FL, for the past 25 years (have never lived anywhere this long in my life!!). Have been married for 31 years to Jim McKee, who's originally from Ft. Wayne, IN. He's an attorney/bill drafter for the FL House of Representatives. I'm a freelance copyeditor, proofreader, and translator (German/English). We don't have any human kids, but we do have 10 cats and 2 dogs, all rescues, all seniors (except for one cat who's 4), and most with special needs. Where are you located? It's so cool to hear from family! The Philipson side of my family was never close, and I'm an only child, so it's really great to hear from you. Please feel free to write back.
Hi Hazel,

This is actually not Rihanna, but my name is Noah Klein. I just stumbled upon this post when doing some internet sleuthing on the Blumbergs. Judy is my aunt, my father, Michael, is her older brother. I, along with all of the Kleins except Judy, am located in Boston. Its great to hear from you, feel free to shoot me an email at if you want to continue the conversation.
