About Isador Langermann

The official record of Floss shows his birthday as Sept 11 [Renate Höpfinger, "Die Judengemeinde von Floss, 1684-1942" chart L 21] but his father's prayerbook (see sources) shows it as Sept 10. There is often a one day discrepancy between Hebrew and german records. . Also the circumcision date is listed as the second day of the Jewish New Year festival which would have been Sept 18. Since this must take place 8 days after birth he was born on the 10th.

Family lore is that he was friends with Madame Curie and had discovered radium/uranium deposits in India but died on the ship headed back ... the probate record does list his address as Madras India and his heir as Edith Rachel Langermann, perhaps his wife? Not a known family member
