Your ISAACS don't seem to be related to my ISAACS, but I would add one more
possible place to your thinking - New Zealand. Although not the time of the
big NZ gold rushes, people did come out here to make their fortunes.
I don't have all may CDs available at the moment, but one on-line source is
the "Otago Nominal Index" http://marvin.otago.ac.nz/oni/. This is a
collection of names that Dunedin genealogical researchers have collected. It
often has interesting information.
It lists a "Joseph ISAACS", age "over twenty", occupation " brassfounder" in
the 1893 Electoral Roll.
There are (of course) numerous Joseph ISAACS around, but if you have a good
high speed internet link it might be worth having a search in Papers Past
(http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz) - a collection of (largely searchable)
19th century NZ newspapers.
Hope this helps

I am trying to trace a family of ISAACS from Wolverhampton and the
Birmingham area. I will give a brief story of what I have found so
far, its quite complicated as each sibling appears to change his name
to something different over the years.
