Searching: SZTERSZTEIN & PIETRUCH - Pultusk, Poland #general
Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
I am looking for information on the SZTERSZTEIN & PIETRUCH families of Pultusk and
the surrounding areas.
The farthest I go back with my SZTERSZTEIN research (which is extremely minimal at
this point) is to my great great great grandparents, Shulem SZTERSZTEIN and Yitka
(maiden name unknown) - both of whom I assume passed away in Pultusk.
Their daughter, Yenta SZTERSZTEIN (1844-1894), married my great great grandfather
Kalman PIETRUCH (1837-1901) in Pultusk sometime before 1862.
I assume that Yenta had siblings, but if there were I don't know anything about
Kalman and Yenta PIETRUCH had 9 children:
Tova Shprintza LASKO
Yitzchak Mayer PIETRUCH
Avraham Shoel PIETRUCH
Rachel Leah NOWYDWOR
Zalman Leib PIETRUCH
Yitka DANIEL (1974-1941) - who married Yehoshua Chaim DANIEL (1870-1837) - my
As far as I know, all the PIETRUCH siblings passed away in Pultusk. However, their
descendants eventually emigrated to the USA, Canada, Israel, and South America.
If anyone knows anything about this SZTERSZTEIN & PIETRUCH family I would really
love to hear back >from you.
Thank you very much.
