A wonderful site, Thank you ! I'm trying to find any information on my grandfather Morris Berger...The only thing I know is that his family was from Lodz, and he was related in some way to the Kohn's. He was married to Mollie Levy, who had a sister Lena. He came to New York in 1905 (?) and died around 1922. Thank you anyone for any information!

I have only been researching my family history since July. I have discovered that my Great Great Grandfather, Jacob Etgart (although perhaps originally spelt differently in Polish) was born in Lubien in May 1848. His wife, Hannah (Anna) Moritz, was born in Chodiz (probably Chodecz) also in 1848. They emigrated to London in the 1860s. I wonder how I might go about locating their Polish records. I also have the names of Jacob's parents, David and Leah Etgart, and of his brothers, Morris and Meyer Etgart. I know of one brother for Hannah, Woolf Moritz. Any assistance would be appreciated. I am also encountering immense difficulties in establishing the derivation of the surname "Etgart" Others have suggested that in Polish it would be Edgard or Edgar. A professor who has published on the subject of Polish surnames, tells me Edgard or Etgart is not Polish. He thinks it Germanic. Do you have any information about the historical background for Lubien/Chodecz for the early to mid 1860s so I can try and understand the circumstances in which these people emigrated?

In fact, my mother's maiden name was Fajersztajn, Griner the name of my natural father who died in Auschwitz; Rozencwajg the name of my adoptive father, all from Lodz. I was born in the concentration camp at Zittau, 18 April, 1945, three weeks before liberation.

The entire website is wonderful. My maternal grandfather, Lazar Dinsky, a published Yiddish poet, was born in Lodz. His father was a learned man who wrote petitions on behalf of illiterate men who were attempting to avoid the draft. He left Poland at age 16 and went to Berlin for a brief time and from there Paris where he remained for about 5 or 6 years he left Europe for New York before the outbreak of World War I. I've been told he had a sister, but I'd like to find out more about his extended family, whether they perished or survived.

My paternal ancestors migrated from Ozerkov [Ozorkow] and Zgierz, near Lodz, to Hull, England, about 1845: Reb Judah (ben Shimmon) Greenbaum (1800-1889) and his son Nathan (1837-1909). We don't know what happened to Reb Shimmon and the rest of the family who, we think, remained in the Ozerkow area.

A very interesting site. I shall come back to look through it in more detail. I have Bernstein and Goldstein ancestors, and have visited Lodz about three or four times. I love the city! I have just finished reading the diaries of David Sierakowiak, a very touching book on the Ghetto in wartime. Best wishes

I believe that you have some of the same descendants as mine. In America in the colonial days there were Bergers/Burgers and Wolf's in the same general German villages. I was raised by a Polish man, named Frank Kuklenski from Warsaw. I was happy to see the names on your pages are the same as I recognize on my genealogy and from family stories. My Dad told me that an old man named Wolf in Pennsylvania prophesied to him as the old man lay ill or dying. Here's my 50's Kids website: http://pages.about.com/larkstudio/uskidsphotos.html

My maiden name is Uberbaum and my father's family was from Lodz. My great grandfather was Simcha Uberbaum who was a chasidic rabbi in Lodz. Am assuming that he was somehow related to Izrael Uberbaum, but am not sure.

My parents fled Lodz to Russia to escape the brutal Nazi occupation started in 1939. My Grandparents, JACOB AND GITEL KRYGIER, and their children, SAMUEL (MY FATHER), JOSEPH, SARAH, CHIA, HERSCHEL, LEON and LEAH also fled. Miraculously they all survived. My mothers family was destroyed. Her maiden name is ESTHER SZYMKIEWICZ. Her father (ALBERT) and mother, CHANA GITEL (maiden name BREITBART) where from the Town of SKERNVICE [Skierniewice]. My mothers older brother LEON SZYMKIEWICZ went to New York before the war and Changed his name to LEON SHANE. MY mothers older sister GITEL WOLMAN, was a gynecologist and disappeared during the occupation. Also my mothers younger brother PINCHUS was said to have fled but we don't know where. My fathers family was originally from a small Polish town called NOVOMIASNA NA PILITSEH [Nowe Miasto nad Pilica] before they moved to LODZ. Thank you for creating and operating this site. I have carried my parents shtetel in my heart all my life and you have made it resonate into the living world.

my great grandfather Jacob Levy, a slippermaker from Lodz, married Rosie Rosenblum and arrived in Hull in England in the 1890s. Their children were Annie (Cross) Esther, Joe, Perlie (collins) Netta and Rachel (my paternal grandmother). There was movement to USA and South Africa, though a few of our branch remain in UK. Any contact or information welcome. A brave site!

I reached your page via a recommendation. I am not a survivor, but a son of survivors. My original family name (on my father's side) was Kon, which was changed to Conrad before my parents came to the U.S. I wonder if there are any links to the families mentioned above. My father was named Henryk Kon. He was not from Lodz, but from Zgierz, just outside of Lodz. He had several siblings, all of whom perished. The one he mentioned to me more than the others was named Marion Kon, who was a writer/journalist. My father was very assimilated, not affiliated with any Jewish organization or synagogue I can think of. If you suspect a family connection, I can try to find more information (it is not that easy, because I do not read or speak Polish nor Yiddish). thanks for your consideration. Mark Conrad New York

Members of my family have been looking for other members of our family.. Kibel and Tarlo surnames. They came from the Lodz, Kutno and Krosnwice area. What I would really like to find out is where the records for the 1840's to 1900 for Krosniewice might be found. I was also told that one of my Great greatgrandfathers, Moishe Aaron Kibel was a cantor in Lodz. He died in 1910. Is there a way I can check this out. Steve Zucker, Leicester England

My mother, PESA ERDBERG, came from Lodz. She lived with her family at LIMANOWSKIEGO 6 (in Polish, Litzmannstadt in the Ghetto, Alexanderhofstrasse during occupation). Sadly, she was forced to leave with her family when she was 23 years old. I grew up listening to her sad and amazing stories of the ghetto, Bergen Belsen, Auschwitz and other slave labor camps. She was the only one to survive, losing her mother and father, her three sisters and numerous other relatives. She later married my father, Zelman ZUBACK of Vilnius, and gave birth to my brother, Jakob, and I. She is now 84 years old and her health is fading. Fortunately, with the help of a friend of mine, we have found a nice fellow who lives in Lodz who has confirmed that the house she grew up in on Limanowskiego is still standing. He was kind enough to take a photograph of it for me and send it via email. I printed it out and showed it to her last week. We had heard so much about the house as children, the shop below where they worked and the day the Nazis forced them to gather in the courtyard before leaving the house never to see it again. So when we recently made contact with our friend in Lodz, who was kind enough to take a photograph of the house and send it to us, we were amazed and delighted. We visited the nursing home where my mother stays and were enthralled to listen to her when she saw the photo of the house for the first time in almost sixty years. My brother and I are hoping to make a trip there within the next few months. If anybody has anything to add or can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me at the email address below (via my buddy Jeff). I would love to hear from you.

I am presently tracing my roots back to Pinchowa and Lodz. My mother is Fela Luksenberg Talerman. Her mother Sura Rivkah Marchewka died in Treblinka along with her two youngest children. My mother was in five e different concentration camps and was liberated from Dachau along with my father Morris Talerman who was the son of Sura Miriam Epstein and Toyvye Talerman. Fela and Morris were both in the Lodz Ghetto, however, my mother left the Lodz Ghetto and went to the Warsaw Ghetto. She was on the last transport out of Warsaw. They both met after the war and married in Dachau and emigrated to America in 1950. They are both still alive and live in the Miami area.

I am looking for any relatives who might have survived the war. My parents were David Szyja Rauchweld or Rochfelt born in Nove Miasto [Nowe Miasta] but he lived all his life in Baluty Lodz where he was a butcher My mother Perla (Pola) Wilczkowska born in Radoszyce also lived all her life in Baluty Lodz. My father had two younger brothers Hershel and Eli and a sister Rifka who was married to an Icek from and lived in Warsaw with two children (I think her daughter's name was Cesia). Her husband took their son and tried to go to Russia with him during the war. My mother had two brothers Hershill and Icek, and two sisters Gitel and Tobcia.Tobcia perished in camp and Gitel survived. My parents as well as Gitel and her family were among the 800 final survivors at the Lodz Ghetto.

As I was scrolling down I noticed some questions people had about visiting Lodz. I think it would be nice if there was a time mentioned as to when the question was posed (year & month.) I don't want to answer an irrelevant mail. I just returned from Lodz. Visited what was once my home and school. People were very friendly and helpful. Have the address of a man who takes people to places of their interest (like cemetery etc.) He has a lot of addresses of people all over the world. He is a walking encyclopedia. He gave me an address of a man in Israel who lived in the same apartment house as I did. I already heard from the man. Anyone wishing his address email me. Lili Susser

I have traced my family tree back to Judah & Leah Yarrochovsky who were born in Lodz. Nearly all of their 10 children were born in Ozorkow approx. between 1880 to 1900. The siblings names are Shea, Toba, Menuchem, Woolf, Barnet, Jacob, Rebecca, Ester, Sam. I have been unable to find any record of my family prior to this, possibly the spelling of the surname is incorrect. When they moved to England before World War 1 they changed the surname to Yarrow.

I am so mesmerized by Shirley's wonderful research which has inspired me to keep going, thanks a million. Shirley I am researching BERLINER Families who lived in Warsaw and Lodz and also JONGEROVSKY/JEZIOROWSKI from CZESTOCHOWA,Poland. Grandfather Solomon Berliner and Grandmother and her Parents and Siblings all sailed to London, in 1890. One Brother, possibly SZMUL JONGEROVSKY/JEZIOROWSKI sailed to the USA but was never heard of again. Grandmothers Family name changed to ISAAC on reaching London and Berliner Family name changed to BURTON in 1940's. Does anyone have any connection to these Families?

Shirley, can you send me your family tree? we have a lot of similar names, and I think you may have the original "Polish/Yiddish" spellings of some surnames and given names of my family - just a funny feeling I have. But was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing any of it? Robin (Wenz) Krout

Please accept my gratitude to you and everyone else connected with this project. My paternal grandfather, Ber'l Glowinski (for whom I am named), and grandmother (ne Regina Hochmanova) both came to the U. S. before World War I, settled first in Detroit (where my father was born in 1918), and then moved to St. Louis, where much of my family still resides.

I am trying to trace my grandfathers family from Piotrkow. My great grandfather was Moses Jacob Zynger my grandmother Annie. They had eight children altogether. My grandfather came over here as a young man. After the war, my grandfather David Singer, which he was known as in England, tried to trace his family after the war. it was led to believe that his family were able to escape to Rakow forest. But were captured and shot. I am hoping there may be family out there. I am planning a trip to Piotrkow September next year which I am looking forward to. If there is anyone out there that may know of my family when they lived in Piotrkow I would be very grateful if they would get in touch with me

Reading over the names, there's a high probability that this may be my family. Since the surnames appear similar and the first names are similar, I suspect there may be some relation. Only a gene test would be the main confirmation at this time. Since I don't have exact dates for marriage or family names in Yiddish or Russian/Polish, it's hard to really say. However, reviewing my names to yours, there's a lot of likeness in the names.

My Great grandfather Jusef was from Wlodawa area and was a glass blower by trade and were some of his sons. I wondering if there is a connection. I do not know if Jusef had any brothers or sisters.

My parents both came from Lodz, Poland, My father (Louis Korman, a carpet weaver by trade) immigrated to USA about the turn of the century (1900). He returned to Lodz in around 1927-28 and married my mother (Fanny Korman) and they both moved to Toronto for perhaps 3 years, then again we all moved to Seattle in 1946. I believe all my family in Lodz were killed by the Nazis except for an uncle Joseph (Jose) Korman (deceased) (mothers side of family) who had moved to Montivideo, Uruguay and then to La Plata, Argentina. I would sure like to hear from any possible relatives--but I have doubts that there are any. I remember immediate family stories that we may have some distant relations (unknown to me) living in Patterson, N.J. Thanks for the wonderful site. Best wishes, Morry Korman.

Amazing site. Will certainly spend a lot of time here. I am looking for information on my late husband (he was a holocaust survivor) Sam Bench (Benczkowski). I am not sure if he was born in Lodz but was there. He was born 12/6/28, one of six sons. His father had a trucking company. I think his parents names were Gail and Isaac. As far as we know my husband was the only survivor. He had one cousin who survived, Henry Bentch (Benczkowski), he came to the USA after the war to Paterson, New Jersey, he has since passed away. I would like to know myself but especially for our children and grandchildren. Thank you for this wonderful body of work.

This site is very rich and so much interesting ! To create similar sites for, in a first step, the big Polish towns -those where Jews were numerous- would be very useful, not only for genealogy but, above all in my mind, for the researchers in history. I joined this site not because my family was living at Lodz (my mother's family lived at Wilno, now Vilnius), but because I want to write a paper about Poznanski family' palaces in Lodz. I am a researcher, an historian of Art, and I am working about the Jewish industrialists in the former Polish Russia. Could you help me ? Many thanks and, twice, all my congratulations for this wonderful site (and I apologize for my bad English language...). Patrick LEON.

Paternal grandfather SIMON SHEINHOLTZ, a tailor, was born in 1857, his father's name was ISAAC, also a tailor. Simon left Lodz in late 1870s. In England his name was translated as "bright-wood" and then shortened to WOOD. On 22.6.1879 he married MARIA GREENBAUM, also of Lodz, father's name Isaac, a tailor, in Kingston-on-Hull. Witnesses were AARON FELDMAN & LEWIS BERGMAN. Their children were: Harry, Alf, Ray, Charlie, Phil, Byrne, Fan, LOUIS (my father born 29.8.1897) and Lil. Family settled in Johannesburg, South Africa after the Boer War. Aunt Fan was in touch with SCHEINHOLTZ family in Lodz up to the outbreak of WW II.

From one numbered so few, I am a second generation descendant, who's family was in Lodz. I how ever am a first fruit of my new land and I can only allude to how it makes me feel to see this work. But lest we should forget the Shoah /The Holocaust as being the manifestation of "THE FINAL SOLUTION" ,the real impact of which was the loss threw duality," JEW" by "religion" and "JEW" by "race". I see that the religious side is well documented but there is ,almost as if by exclusion ,a lack of inclination to deal in what was lost, by way of blood ,to the Tribe . To only have mention of this relationship, even to this day ,is threw birth and death , cloaked with religion and kept from the exsoteric,does no justice to or commemoration for all threw that spirit of want.

Whilst browsing I came across the surname Kaminsky. My great grandmother was Annie Kaminsky (Chaia Bat Meir) and her brother was Baruch. Her father was Meir Kaminsky and her mothers name was Miriam. They came from Neistadt in Poland and settled in the UK about 1860. Annie was born in 1852. She married my ggrandfather Lewis Szapira of Volkovysk, Belarus.

I found a name Pacanowski on your web site. David Pacanowski was my maternal grandfather. He and my grandmother perished in the Lodz ghetto in 1941. He had a store with stationary and a small paper factory in Lodz. Please let me know if there is any relation between us. Thank you.

I think that you are to be congratulated on an excellent site. It is a wonderful contribution to Jewish History and to the memory of your family and others who lived and died in Lodz. There is much for me still to read and digest.
