The Rosenberg Chronicles is a compilation of Paul Rosenberg's extensive research on two of his grandparents; Dov Bair Rosenberg and Aharon Zev Holman, and their descendants. I am a descendant of Rabbi Aharon Zev Holman and Paul and I are second cousins, once removed as his grandmother Masha/Mary and my great grandfather Max were siblings. The Chronicles include family narratives, charts, information, photos & documents. I have taken the liberty, with Paul's permission, to retype a portion of the Rosenberg Chronicles to include on this website. Although the narrative he wrote has been retyped in its entirety, my Family Tree only includes the descendants of Rabbi Aharon Zev Holman. For more information about the descendants of Dov Bair, in particular Nathan and his family, Buzz Rosenberg has also created a webpage, www.buzzrosenberg.org.
Paul's narrative refers to several Appendix items; photographs and documents collected through the years. Not all of them are included as much of what I have are copies which did not scan clearly.
We owe a debt of thanks to Paul, our family’s first historian, for opening our window to the past!

Beatrice Kaplan, daughter of Max and Sarah Rosenberg, sent the following to her niece, Roz Shalek in 1983:
"Dear Roz, Here is the history of our family which I have prepared. I hope you find it interesting. I am not 100% certain that Aaron Holman's first wife was named Bryna, but Edith and Bertha Rosenberg were both named Bryna. So, I think it is a logical assumption."
