About The Goldberg Family
[The photos are of Charlotte Brass, Martin (her husband) and their two sons, Solly; and Sam; 
and 
Isaac 
Goldberg's tombstone. And a photo of the inscription on the front of Niddrie Road Shul 
(Langside 
Hebrew Congregation) commemorating Abraham Goldberg's laying of the foundation stone; the shul 
closed down in Spring 2016 

This site's central reference point is David Goldberg's four grandparents - [paternal] Bessie 
Margolis and  Abraham Goldberg and [maternal] Isaac Cohen and Regina Blumenthal.
The "Glasgow Goldbergs" begin with the arrival, from Dublin, in 1907/8 (?), of Bessie and 
Abraham 
with eldest son Ephraim (b.Dublin 1907). Abraham married Bessie 
(an orphan from 8yo; she lived in Dublin with brother and sister-in-law) in 1905 in Dublin. 
Abraham founded a business in Glasgow, to be known as "A.Goldberg and Sons Ltd" selling 
everything 
for the home, including groceries and clothes. An ardent Zionist, Abraham purchased land in 
1930´s 
Yishuv; founded a citrus processing  company in 1937, Citrus Food Products/Pri-Peri as well as 
other institutions in Rehovot. He moved there in 1945 for two years. The first Glasgow home was 
in 
55 Main Street, Gorbals. Other children were born: Melach (Michael); Ray; Sadie; Milly and 
Leslie. Sadie and Milly die, coincidentally, both at 7 months old. Ray (m. Frederic Landau; one 
daugther, Anna)and Leslie (m Sheila Joy Barnet; no issue) settled in London. In Ireland, 
Abraham 
parted company with his brother, Louis, who travelled to USA/NJ. From Chiz Goldberg's 
autobiography, we learn that there also three sisters: Molly, Sarah and Lena who have also 
settled 
in the USA. Isaac Goldberg (Abraham's father)arrives in NYC in 1921 and dies there in 1932. 
Melach 
(he officially registered as "Michael" in 1971) is introduced to (I)Rene Cohen in London (by 
his 
sister Ray) and they marry in London  in 1942. Their first marital home is in Dumbarton, 
Michael 
serving during WW2 at RAOC Bonhill (apart from a 6 week stint in Norway in 1945). Rene's 
parents 
are Isaac Cohen, who's mother is Malkah Rokach, was born in Petach-Tikvah and Regina Gittel 
Blumenthal, born in Riga. Rene has one brother, Vivian, who  changes his name to "Craig" in 
1953. 
Michael and Rene have two children,  Judith (Judy) and David. Michael's brother Ephraim (with 
whom  he eventually runs A.G and S)  marries Clarisse Schamisso (Antwerp); they have three 
children, Myra, Mark and Marion.
