: My grandfather came from Shanghai or somewhere near, using these names. What are they likly to be in chinese. How can I find out about his emigration to the UK.
Zeeve is Prussian. It's my ex-father-in-law's name. Joel Morris Zeeve and his brother Joshua Wolfe Zeeve were living in New York around 1900. Joel also filed a patent for some land in South Dakota. One of Joshua's daughters was born in South Dakota.
some of the names associated with these two are:
Rose or Rosalia (Joshua's wife and Joel's daughter) Ida, Tessie, Dora (both Joshua and Joel named daughters Dora), Louis, Rachael, Alexander, Jerome.
Maybe I can be of some help at least.
