My father, Lipman ben Polteil, Kinigsberg was born in Lodz Poland in 1908. I am beginning my search for information about his parents, Regina and Polteil, and his brother Bernard and his sisters, Anja, Basia, Pola and Eda. I am also searching for information about his first wife, Estera Markiel and his son Jakub Kinigsberg.

Your site came up on a search for Christina Fredricka Grossman (1849-50). Moved from Ohio to Indiana. This Grossman family is from Germany so I expect we are a different branch on the TREE.

thank you! On behalf of a wonderful woman from Lodz - am trying to find out WHERE her parents were transported from the Lodz Ghetto in April 1942. My friend survived Ravensbruck - but has not been able to learn where her parents were killed. We suspect Chelmno. Is there a database with appropriate information? or does anyone reading this know? Their names: Wolf and Golda Fuks. Mr. Fuks was a tailor in Lodz.

Your site is very interesting. I need your help for my search. I'm doing a search about my family: the father of my grandmother, Giulio Dresner, born in Lodz the 24/4/1885, and known as "Opatoska" or "Opatowska": he was son of a rabbi of Baalshem but he was something like a rebel and he was very active in the communism and Zionism in Lodz (my grandmother said he was friend of Lenin but I suppose she was exaggerating!). He went away from Poland in the first years of 1900. Also the mother of my grandmother, Rosa Fishlevitch, was born in Lodz, I know she was six years older than Giulio. How can I know more about them? Can you help me? It's very difficult to find something, you can immagine how much I am interested, if you can help me, please write me at my e-mail address ( or via dei Bardi 19, 50125 Florence, Italy (tel. 0039/055/2476764) thank you very much, yours Laura Forti

my mother Toba Frush nee Grossman nee Goldberg is a survivor of the Lodz Ghetto. She was married to Abram Grossman and had a little boy, Monyek. Her husband died in the Ghetto and her son was taken away from her and presumably perished. Her parents names were Avrom and Chana Goldberg and they had a coffee shop on Lagunitzka 4. Her husband had manufacturing shop at Yakuba 10, Lodz. My mother had 3 sisters, Rivka, Leah, Rachel and a brother Kalmen Leib. My father is also from Lodz. His name is Lipman Frush. Any information would be very much appreciated, since my father is deceased and my mother is a sole survivor.

I got to your link via New Jersey Vital Statistics Bureau, links. My grandfather, Morris Grossman, hails from Lodz! He came here in the late 1800s with his parents, and I am in the process of constructing a family tree. He was a printer in Paterson, NJ, and died in 1950. Is there a connection with you folks? I suspect there was probably unrelated Grossmans in Lodz, but who knows! Michael

My paternal grandfather, Simon Wolf Kyjawski was born in Lodz in 1878. He left Poland when he was 15 or 17, later settling in Birmingham, England, where he and his wife Annie (maiden name Isaacs) raised a large family. I've been trying to locate my grandfather's vital records. In addition, I have tried to find out if any of the family from Poland survived the Holocaust. A cousin, Willie Kyjawski & his wife Regina visited the UK briefly in 1939 or '40. They were en route either for the U.S. or Canada. Unfortunately the family lost touch after a year or so.

My mother's family name is Rosenvasser from Lodz. Just yesterday I was at the Mormon FHC in New York researching records. I ran out of time before I could look at the marriage record of Aron R. to Ryfka Bergier. The other three Rosenvasser marriages listed by LDS are all in my family (my gggf and his siblings), but if Aron's father was Moska, then he is not directly in my line, but maybe a more distant relation. Do you have any more details about him or Rosenvassers in general?

My grandfather's name was Louis Berger. Sometime in the early 1920's the family changed its name to Bergere. We have very little information about my grandfather's family. He married Ann Feeney in in the late 1800's or early 1900's and lived in NYC. They had five children Kenneth, Vivian, Isabelle, Josephine and Warren. Warren is my father. All are living except for Kenneth who passed away in the early 1960's. It is thought that after Louis married Ann ,an Irish Catholic, he distanced himself from his family. It is also thought that Louis's parents emigrated from Poland. Other details: Louis is buried in a large Jewish cemetery in NYC( maybe Brooklyn or Queens). My brother Allen and sister Rori are very interested in our family history. If you think we may be descendants of the Berger Family of Lodz, Poland I can see if more detail can be provided to you such as dates, locations, as well as other relationships. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Brian Bergere

My father was born in Lodz in 1898 and emigrated to Buenos Aires in 1930 for the PKO. The surname might have been spelt Gelbsztain. Most of his family died in the Holocaust except for one brother who I believe escaped from Majdanek after the war stayed in Lodz under the new name of Stanislaw Krysztoporski. The french widow of one of the brothers Aaron (Mme Francette Gelbstein) died in Haifa in the 1980s. Would certainly like to know more about any of these relatives.

My maternal BERGER line starts out in Pietkowo. Sora BERGER married Mendel Josel BERGER and had many children. Max left Lomza Gubernia in 1884 for NYC and was followed by Sarah in 1888. She came with the first four kids. I have ship docs for all of this data and more. Sarah had a sister Rifka (Rebecca) who married a man named Solomon PHILLIPS in Poland and had one child before thay came to NYC in abt 1885. They ended up in Chicago for the 1900 census with ten kids. If this connects to any BERGERs you know please let me know Lenny

To Shirley Flaum -This is a remarkable piece of research. I looked through your names as you suggested but did not find any that fit the names of the people I know. These names are Szampanier (Champanier), Frisch and Cohen (but everyone has a Cohen in his/her family, right???) Good luck with your research. I'll keep searching and if you come across either the Szampanier or Frisch names, I would be greatly appreciative. Thank you. Elaine Farran

Unfortunately I did not, as I believe my last name was originated in Germany where my grandfather was born. Albert Asher (Usha) Berger. My family had to leave due to persecution and not many survived. My grandfather (deceased) has a sister and she is the only other survivor of his family other then their offspring. I will continue my search and have enjoyed reading yours.

I have been unable to go back beyond that point out of being tied up in other matters. My papers for refernce are not availbale at this time. I will however go back into them and provide you with what I have put together. It is not impossible (nothing every is) that we do have a common thread.

Did you look at my Berger tree? It's in the shtetlink part of jewishgen, under Zmigrod. Although I can see no connection, I did see some of the same names --- my GF was Wolf, he had a brother Jonah, a cousin Haskel, his mother was Brandel, his wife Zlate. They must have been common names. Brandel was a Morgenstern, and Zlate a Spiro. We'll just have to keep plugging away. You've been able to get further back than I. There's always the possibility that if I can get back further, a connection could show up. Best regards, Bea

Good job, congratulations. I have some interest in Lodz as several branches of my family originate from there as well. One remark concerning Layzer and Hanny Wdowa Matzonkij: The word "wdowa" or "widowa" is not a name, it means "widow" in Polish. And the word "Matzonkij" is probably the often encountered term "malzonki" which follows the surname of a wife and simply means "wife", thus it is not a surname either. Best regards, Daniel
