It would be worthwhile for Sue to contact Yael Barenholz,

surnames Westerman and Mirvis.

Just a few days till we travel to the UK and Europe (Latvia in late May),
and now I have a copy of my family tree. Perhaps I could learn something
more over there if I had a few more leads.

My ggparents were cousins. They were Lieba Weiner b1865 and Leib Yehuda
Gutman b1853, both of Friedrichstadt (Jaunjelgava).

Their mothers were sisters. Lieba's parents were Riva Westerman and Abraham
Weiner. Leib's parents were Frada Westerman and Helman Gutman. Presumably
all born 1830's - 40's.

Riva and Frada Westerman's parents were Sara and Lippe Westerman, presumably
born 1800's -1810's.

Do any of these names occur in anyone else's family tree?

Are there Gutman's in anyone's family that far back? I have no connections
for Helman Gutman.

All spellings are approximate. I'd appreciate any leads.
