Finding velvl/wolf libowski, also known as luboff #general


Rochelle Kaplan <rochelle@...>
 

I have been told by my husband's now deceased relative that my husband's
grandfather, Harry Lubov, formerly known as Hirsch Libowski, had a
sibling named Velvl Luboff who lived in NYC and had 8 children, but the
family lost touch with Velvl. On Hirsch Libowski's 1904 ship manifest,
he writes that he was going to see his brother Wolf Libowski, at 271
Madison St. Hirsch/Harry moved to CT. Another sibling, Beryl or Barnett
also moved to CT.

I have been trying unsuccessfully to locate Velvl or Wolf
Libowski/Luboff. I have tried NY Genealogical and Biographical Soc.
Links, Ancestry, Heritage Quest, Proquest, Stephen Morse NYC sites, NYC
1905 directories. I recently tried other variants of Libowski and Lubov.

I wonder if anyone out there has other suggestions- possible name
variants. What other names might Velvl or Wolf have adopted other than
Benjamin?

Sincerely,
