    Please look on my 'sticky' message on this Forum regarding burial and marriage records online from the Australian Jewish Historical Society. These burials and marriages include NYBERG and CRAWCOUR plus associated lines.

    See Marriages- St Kilda Hebrew Congregation 1 January 1880 Alfred Nyberg-Alice Crawcour and Burials for Alfred Nyberg.

    There are 53 Crawcour burials up to 2019 and 29 Crawcour marriages indexed and listed.

    Nb There is an entry for a MEIER NYBERG marriage to REBECCA SOLOMON 12 August 1863 Melbourne Hebrew Congregation.

    I have looked on Ancestry.Co for data on this line but can't locate it. There is currently no data to confirm whether or not this Meier Nyberg is related to Alfred.

    In addition, the Avotaynu German Jewish surname list identifies NEUBERG as a last name.

    As previously posted on this thread the last name Nyberg is very likely to be Neuberg the German place name.

    In the previous post I identified the Marriage of Meier Nyberg to Rebecca Solomon in 1863.
    The question was raised as to whether or not he was related to Alfred Nyberg born Volkmarsen Hesse Kassel.

    The Herald ( Melbourne) Monday 17 August 1863 recorded the marriage:
    On the 17 August at the Bourke Street Synagogue ..MEIER NYBERG importer late of Volkmarsen, Electorate Hesse Germany to Rebecca, fifth daughter of the late Benjamin Henry Solomon Esq of Hobart Town Tasmania

    Given the small population of Volkmarsen it appears possible that Alfred and Meier were related. Further research is required.

    This post is a follow up to earlier data on MEIER NYBERG aka NEUBERGER aka NEWBURGER. The focus of the research is to confirm whether or not he is a brother or close relative of Alfred Nyberg who married Alice Crawcour.
    Both Meier and Alfred were living in Melbourne at the same time.

    Australian Records show:
    England United Grand Lodge of England Freemason Membership
    MEIER NYBERG 27 b abt 1834 Initiation 8 April 1861 Commercial Traveller Lodge Felix Australia Melbourne

    The City Directory of Melbourne
    MEIER NYBERG 6 Victoria Buildings Queen Street Melbourne 1867

    Alfred Nyberg 1867
    Boot and Shoe Warehouse 146 King Street Melbourne

    Victoria Birth Index

    HENRY ISRAEL NYBERG b 1866 Melbourne Victoria

    ANN NYBERG b abt 1864
    Both children's parents Meier Nyberg and Rebecca Solomon

    UK and USA Census Records confirm that the Meier and Rebecca Nyberg family left Australia and settled first in London then later in the USA.

    Nb Ancestry.Co public family trees and Census Records have name changes for the family- Nyberg became NEUBERGER in the 1881 British Census and 1901 USA Census. However, transcription errors have recorded the same as NEWBERGER in the 1901 USA Census and NEWBURGER in at least one Burial Record.

    I will post on the various records.

    Importantly, there maybe a confirmation that Meier and Alfred are related because in his Victoria Naturalisation record Alfred named his father as Israel and this appears as a middle name for Henry Israel Nyberg the son of Meier. The Ashkenazi naming tradition usually names a son after the death of their grandfather. Henry and Israel may well be an indicator of this.

    The following post provides further data on Meier Nyberg/Neuberger/Newberger married to Rebecca Solomon and their children. The majority of data on the lines is from the USA where they settled having moved from Australia to the UK and then USA.

    I will post on the USA records including census, marriages and deaths.

    It is clear from the various records that the surname varied significantly between Australia, UK and USA.
    This helps explain why Ancestry.Co public family trees have not identified the family lines fully.
