In the book "Mazkeret Legedolei Ostraha" (ed. Biber) there appear 2 articles on a
R' Yisrael Nachman ben Yosef (articles 222 &277). The editor makes a comment that
these two may be the same person.
We have an ancestor by the exact same name who lived during the 18 &19th cent. who
also came >from Ostraha and as the editor mention also made aliya as did the rabbi
(s?) mentioned in the above book. I would like to confirm if my ancestor and the
above are the same persons.
If anyone is connected to the above mentioned Yisrael Nachman or know their (his?)
genealogy I would be very happy to hear >from you.
