Jacob Yacov/Yehuda Mendelsohn was born in July of 1955. His Montreal Naturalization papers state he came from Falticeni, Province of Moldova, Romania.
According to his gravestone, his father’s name was Fishel.
Jacob arrived in Montreal on July 1st, 1905. He sailed from Liverpool, England on the ship Southwark. He arrived with Fannie, Paul, Rosa, Sarah, Harry, Esther, Sam, Annette, Bella & Philip under the name of WEISSBERG/WEINBERG. By the 1911 Montreal Census, they were all back to using the Surname of Mendelsohn. My Dad told me he believed his father Pincus/Paul was going to be drafted so they left town and boarded the ship under a different name.
Jacob was a Butcher.
