|Selig (Zalick) from Embden, Germany - (Fulham - Middlesex)
I recently discovered my 4g-grandfather, Jonathan, a Jewish people, who emigrated to BRUSSELS in 1815 and died there in 1829, was probably born in FULHAM (today the greater LONDON) around 1750. His father wasn't because he came from Embden (Germany) at the beginning of C18 without yet surname (his children should adopt as surnames JONES or JOHNSON or . . ).
Perhaps useful : Selig from Embden is given in a family tradition as a mill owner and occupier at Fulham.
How and where I would learn more about ?
Add-on : since a while we know the hebrew name of Selig should be Reuben Selig Jacob b. Naftali (FULDA) Ha-Cohen.
Family Surnames: Embden, Emden, Jones, Johnson
