Re: Lumshi, Poland or Russia? #belarus
Hattie Berman Murphy looks for Abe Brezak's "Lumshi", "Poland or Russia".
It could be present Poland's and former Russian Empire's Lomza (missing
diacritic marks here...). Lomza is shown as Lomzhe in phonetic Yiddish in
the JewishGen Communities Database at
It can be found choosing amongst different results obtained by searching for
town "Lumshi" (as heard in Hattie's family), in JewishGen's home page.
There is a JewishGen's Family Finder's record showing a researcher is
tracing Brezaks and two other last names, all in Lomza.
This Brezak research is amongst the 1532 hits and 749 researchers in the
JGFF for Lomza. Perhaps Hattie should get in contact, and also check if the
other last names in
for this researcher go in her family.
Hope this helps,
