Family GLICK / GLEEK / GLUCK / GLYK - Help!!! #general


Daniel Gee <DanielGee@...>
 

Dear Genners,
Does the surname Glick, Gleek or Gluck pop up on your family tree?
Is there a link with Palestine (pre-1948)?
Rabbi Gleek/Glick/Gluck was born in Beisagola, Lithuania in the 1850s.
He moved to Jerusalem and his father was either Areih Leib.
Rabbi Gleek/Glick/Gluck had a large family and had at least three siblings:
1) A brother who went to South Africa - nothing more is known.
2) A sister, Cissy/Sara (1854-1923) who went to Argentina via Manchester
3) A brother, Nachman Gleek (1858-1938) who went to Manchester in 1888
nb When Nachman was widowed, he left Manchester for Palestine in 1930.
He died in an old folks home and is buried on the Mount of Olives.
If there is anyone you can ask about this, in hope of jogging their memory,
I'd be ever so grateful. Talk about a needle in a haystack!
Many Thanks, in advance.
Daniel Gleek
