Moses Landes, my second great grandfather, migrated from Romania to North America, and his sons also followed a similar path at different times. While Moses traveled through Liverpool, my great grandfather, Joseph Landes, traveled through Hamburg. Within a few years, they were reunited in Montréal first, then New York City. I’ve written more details about the Landes family history here.
Using Google Maps, I’ve highlighted the important locations — residences and ports — for these Landes ancestors. Because I still haven’t determined some city and town details prior to immigration, when only a country name has been confirmed, the location in the map is Google’s center marker for that country.
The timeline extends from the birth of my second great grandfather to the death of my grandfather, Herbert Landes.

Great job Harlan! Here’s some more info – Grandma Marcia lived at Aventura, in Florida (on Biscayne Blvd – North Miami (not sure about the North Miami, but I think so). She lived there for about 2 years before moving to Flanders K which was in Del Ray Beach Fl. Here’s the tricky part – not sure about the years, but it was after your Dad and I were married (1969) and before you were born (1976). My best guess is Aventura 1975 and Del Ray 1978 or 79. I do remember bringing you down there for the first time visiting her in Aventura, then it was always Del Ray. You were very young. I can’t remember the name of the community she lived in, maybe Dad will, but most likely it will pop into my brain when I least expect it. Randy might also be able to fill in some dates.
.Marcia moved to FL in 1972. Bought a condo soon after at Ensenada 1 in Aventura. Moved to kings point in 1977.
