Sadly, there were several tragedies in the extended Blieden family.

Harvey Blieden, son of Hannah Wolfson and Aron Blieden had 6 siblings:  Rose LIly, Herman, Abe, Meyer, Anna and Reeve.

Each one of them has their own page under the Harvey SIbling’s. You can learn more about them and their families and see images and documents related to their lives. The only sibling that does not have their own page is Anna, as we can not find any information about her.

Harvey and 4 of his siblings, and his mother, settled in the United States. Actually, Harvey was the last of them to emigrate. The United States siblings, spelled their surname “Blieden”, while Herman, who settled in South Africa, spelled his surname, “Bliden”.

Be sure to check out the video clips under the Blieden menu to see some of them in action.
