My name is Eliav. I am looking for information regarding my family who migrated to England in the end of the 19th century.
The family name is Posimensky. According to a diary that my great grandfather wrote, his father was one of the founders of the Machzike Hadath congregation (whose synagogue in Brick Lane, once a Huguenot chapel, was also known as Spitalfields Great Synagogue and is now a mosque).
He was also a cabinet maker in the East End so maybe there is information about a Jewish cabinet makers trade union.
I can also send you parts of the diary if it is any use to you
Will be glad for any help
