Biographical/Historical Note:  The earliest evidence of this Zucker family line begins with Meier Simon Zucker near the middle of the eighteenth century in Bavaria. During the nineteenth century, some members of the third generation, children of Simon Meier and Mindel (Gutman) Zucker, immigrated to Georgia. Their daughters Marian and Lena Zucker married brothers Jacob and Isaac Grass, respectively. Daughter Sophie married Julius Breitenbach. These three men were partners in a saddlery business in Albany, Georgia. Another daughter Bettie married Marcus Crine and they also lived in Albany.

In the fourth generation, Minnie Grass, daughter of Jacob and Marian Grass, married Louis Holitser. They moved to Eastport, Maine where Louis was in business. Louis and Minnie had three daughters, Irma, Elsie, and Kate, all born in Eastport. In 1905, Minnie and their daughters moved to Savannah, Georgia, and Louis moved to Emporia, Virginia. Kate was the only daughter of Louis and Minnie Holitser to marry.

Scope and Content:  This collection contains articles, a bible, birth and death certificates, books, clippings, correspondence, deeds, maps, microfilm, notes, probate records, typescripts, and wills.  Much of the collection is made up of photocopies.  Included in the collection are several versions of a manuscript on the Zucker family genealogy published in The Genealogist (Fall 1998), along with documentation used in researching the article.  Also included are several versions of a manuscript on Louis Holitser, including one that was published in Search (Winter 1989).

Much of the collection consists of photocopies. Some of the materials in the collection are from Bavaria and are translated.  A microfilm reel contains The Jewish South, a weekly newspaper founded in Atlanta in 1877.  Also included are copies of the Eastport Sentinel, a Maine newspaper, dating from 1877 to 1905.
