Post subject:  Lowenberg LÖWENBERG

The surname I am interested in is LÖWENBERG.
My great grandfather Valentin Lowenberg emigrated from Nesselrode to Grenfell, Saskatchewan, Canada in April 1887.
We know he emigrated from Nesselrode because this was recorded on the Hamburg passenger list from Hamburg to Grimsby, England and then they went from Liverpool to Halifax, Nova Scotia and then by train to Grenfell. I have extensive records of the family in Canada. I also have a few “brick walls” in my research.
The family was from Josefsberg, Galicia and then moved sometime in the mid 1870’s to the Nesselrode Birsula area.
The Hamburg passenger list is as follows: (with my annotations)
Valentin Lowenberg            42    (born May 25, 1844 Galicia)
Katharina Lowenberg          40    (born March 1, 1846 Galicia, maiden name Daum)
Philipp Lowenberg              16    (born Feb 28 1870 Galicia)
Elisabeth Lowenberg 12    (born July 18, 1872 Galicia)
Johann Lowenberg              10    (born Feb 19, 1875 Galicia)
Jacob Lowenberg                 9     (born Oct 5, 1876 Galicia)
Franz Lowenberg                 8     (born Oct 2, 1878 Galicia or Russia?)
Georg Lowenberg                4     (born May 20, 1879 Russia)
Catharine Lowenberg         2     (born Oct 12, 1882 Russia)
Carolina Lowenberg             1     (born Dec 27, 1885 Russia)
The GGD Family Book for Josefsberg shows the family and only the first four children. I suspect the family moved about 1877 to Russia and that the last four children listed were born there.
Any information on this family or other Lowenbergs in Bukovina or Russia would be most appreciated.

Many thanks

Thanks Murray.

I’ll have to see if this family links in anywhere on my family tree.

My time period of interest in Russia based on my family is from about 1875 to 1890 as the family went to Russia and then went to Canada after a 10-15 year period.

I note in the GGD family books that Lowenberg and Lowenberger are treated as variations of the same name. I’ve always wondered what the distinction was between the names. It would be helpful to know. Once families were in North America they tended to stay with either Lowenberg or Lowenberger.

In Canada I’ve focused solely on the Lowenberg name. I think now I may need to include both variations but being very careful to maintain distinctions. I have noted that there are both Lowenberg and Lowenberger families in western Canada which show they came from Galicia. Hopefully the matching of names and birthdates will allow some linking first in Galicia and then with Canadian families.

As an aside I noted in your Gauer tree that you have Lowenbergs and I have this family and antecedents in my records. If you have any questions that way perhaps I may have something of interest.
