I have an ULMAN line in my family of GRACE PELLETZ JAFFE/JOFFE that came
from Lithuania in the shtetlach of Kamajai/Rokiskis/Kopiskis. But I

My question is, does anyone know whether this society

We are trying to figure out what his ancestral shtetl
was as my friend is going to Poland in June (ha ha,
with the name Cohen we're going to need divine help!).
Also, if anyone out there is related to the Cohens of
a big Brooklyn umbrella factory, founded by Max and
Lena Cohen, please let me know.
