About Marks Rosenberg

The Unbroken Chain (Neil Rosenstein 1990 Vol 1, page 23). Hirsch Mordechai HaLevi Wizanski (or Visanska, later changed to Morton or Marks Rosenberg, the surname of an uncle, thus avoiding Russian military service). He was born in Suwalki in 1839/1940 and died in New York.

(HRB: The uncle who Marks took the name of was probably married to or the child of a Margolis, possibly Batya Margolis).

Marks Rosenberg married Jennie (Sema) Maggid, a descendant of R. Moses Katzenellenbogen (like the Margolis family).

Jewish Gen records his birth "Hirsz Morthaj" to Aron Wizajnska and Chaja Dyna Zylbersztejn in Suwalki in 1839.
