advice wanted; my wife's great grandfather was a chazzan at the
Wloclawek synagogue in the 1880s. According to family lore he went to
Berlin to have an operation for a stomach ulcer and died there about
1886. It seems a long and expensive journey but I guess the German
surgeons were reckoned better than the local Polish ones and the
congregation seems to have been very German orientated at the time.
However can anyone suggest how and where I could find his death details.
I assume he was not brought back to Poland to be buried.
His name was Abraham Joseph WELCZMAN (also spelled Veltsman,
researching DAJCZ and variants, KUTNOWSKI >from Poland.
