I'm trying to find relatives of my great-grandfather Josef Himovich/himowitz/hiamowitz, among others. The spelling has been a serious problem as I have yet to find more than two documents with the same spelling.
Josef was born in Nov. of 1864 in Romania. He married Clara (sometimes called Bertha)Moskowitz in Romania and migrated to NYC around 1887. They had three sons, each of whom spelled the name differently--Sam Hiamowitz (my grandfather), Frank Heimowitz, and Philip Haimowitz. Josef later left this family and moved to Cape Town, South Africa where he married Rachel Golinger and had two more children, Henry Himer and Netty Himovich.
