Meet the Gottheimers

Hamilton Jordan's original title for his memoir (published Oct 2015) was "Meet the Gottheimers" -- a startled observation finding out, after her funeral, that his maternal grandmother had been Jewish.

This Geni project collects Gottheimers, not just his. Some are indeed surprising. Contributions welcome.
