Subject: GUTMAN (GUTMANOVICH)

I am searching for a connection between the family Gutman (or Gutmanovich)
and the poet Shaul Tchernichovsky. The latter's parents were Tuviya Ben
Dov Gutman and his mother was Bilha Bat Shaul Karp. Why he adopted the
name Tchernichovsky is unknown to me. Tchernichovsky was born in
Mikhailovka just near the border of Crimea in 1875 and his parents came
from Mikhailovka and Kherson, respectively. If there are connections to
other Gutmans or Guttmans, I would be interested in hearing.
Thank you
