ROTTERSMAN Family, Bochnia, Poland #general


Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I am researching my mother's family in Galicia. My grandfather was Samuel
ROTTERSMAN (1895-1947), who was the son of Isaac Rottersman (1861-1931) and
Malka (Mishket) BLONSKI (1860-1906). Isaac lived in Bochnia, Poland (some
of the records mention Stanislawice). I knew of two sisters of my
grandfather, Sadie (1889-1965) and Esther (1897-1964). Isaac had a second
family with his second wife, Itel LANDWIRTH (1881-1939), of which the only
one I had heard of was Nathan (Nutke) (1915-1996).

When I began research into the Rottersman family, I discovered that there
were more branches of the family. I learned >from other researchers that
there were other Rottersmans in Bochnia. One of my cousins mentioned a
number of Rottersmans in the Bochnia cemetery.

I would like to find out whether some of these other branches are connected
to my family. My grandfather's father Isaac was the son of Samuel (or Szmuel
in Polish). I found another Szmuel Rottersman who died in Bochnia in 1897,
but I do not think he was the Szmuel who was my grandfather's grandfather.
Among this Szmuel's children was Yussel Leib Rottersman (1852-1917), of whom
two children, Regina (1875-1956) and Chaim Baruch (1878-1953), immigrated
to the United States. I think the children of another, Elimelech (1880-1931),
remained in Europe and may have died in the Shoah.

There are also a number of other Rottersmans who lived in the general area,
although not necessarily near Bochnia. I have been able to use various
sources to link the various records to obtain the branches of the family.

If anyone can help with suggestions, please let me know.
