ROSENBAUM-19th cent. Tveria (Tiberius) #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari

My maternal great grandfather, Yacov Gedalia SCHECHTER's, grandfather
Yisrael ben Yosef ( family name unknown) came to Eretz Yisrael
(Palestine) during the first half of the 19th cent. and seems to have
gone first to Zfat and at some point to Tveria.

One of my cousins believes that his family name was ROSENBAUM
(spelling?) and that his children later changed it to SCHECHTER as per
their profession (Shochet/ritual butcher). His children did not make
aliya as their father did (to die here as many others did).

The book "Tveria" published several decades ago has a list of family
names which appear in any sources in Tveria and lists a ROSENBOIM
without giving any details of his first name, years, origin etc.

Does anyone know details of the above ROSENBOIM who lived in Tveria at
some point in history?
