Where did the German Goldstein family come from? When did the Goldstein family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Goldstein family history?

A multitude of prestigious family names, such as the surname Goldstein, were formed in the lands which became the modern state of Silesia. In the medieval era, Germany was fragmented and inhabited by numerous barbarian tribes who fought amongst themselves for control of the land. The ancient dukedom of Silesia derived its name from a Germanic tribe named the Silingers, who occupied Silesia between the 2nd and the 6th centuries.
