Hi Eli,

I follow your posts with relish. Thank you for extending your contributions to the Lomza diaspora. I look forward to learning from the KehilaLink page!

My Sandovitch/Samuels/Silverstein family (three brothers with different names) came to America around the turn of the last century or a little earlier, and my Formanovitch family (the wife of Sandovitch in Boston, Massachusetts, and a family known as Foreman in Glasgow, Scotland) came from Lomza. I have not yet found the link with the Sandovitch family in Scotland, though we are in touch.

I know just a little more about these folks and their parents. What would be helpful as you put together the webpage?

Saw the update on the site.  Looks great!

My relatives came from Ciechanowiec.  Part of Ciechanowiec lies in Grodno and part in Lomza.  I have two different grandparents from this area.  Surnames include ROZENTHAL, LUBITSCH, GOTLIEB, WELIEN, and SUKNO.   More informative can be provided upon request.

My name is Maritza Goldman, I’m looking for years for some information on my grandfather's family.

My grandfather's name was Srul Goldman.

I received some information that his family was from Lomza and later moved to Warsaw.

His parent’s names were Moishek and Tzipa Goldman.

I appreciate any further information and suggeations  where to search.

My father- Sherman Edwards (1919-1981), married to Ingrid Edwards

His father - Nathan Edwards (Nachum Hirsch Jedwabinsky), 1896 - 1959 married to Rachel Rosenblatt
