Originally from Myslowitz, where he married. Some time before 1867 he moved to Kattowitz and opened a Conditorei (confectionery shop) at Friedrichsplatz 7. Some years later he moved to larger premises at Friedrichsplatz 1 - see Conditorei Albert Danziger for more about his business.

An AJ Danziger is mentioned as a member of Myslowitz's protection guild in August 1850; the guild was led by one Mor(itz?) Danziger.

The notes on the children of Albert and Rosa Danziger (origin unknown) do not mention Ferdinand or Julius, nor the two children who died in infancy, these are known only from IGI and JRI-Poland; it may be that Ferdinand died young and without issue.

His marriage record names him as Albert Jacob Danziger, as does his daughter Zelima's, but his son Isidor's gravestone names his father Abraham. Albert's death certificate names his father as Jacob, so it is probable that Jacob is his Hebrew patronym and Albert is a vernacular alternative to Hebrew Abraham. His son Julius' death certificate names him as Adolf, although other details on the certificate confirm that it relates to Albert.

My 2 x great grandfather.
