Dear all,

Gertrude Donchin Chityat wrote:

I'm seeking anyone with knowledge of the DONCHIN or NEIMAN family from
Lund, Sweden. The DONCHINs lived there >from about 1902 till 1911, at 3
Hospitalsgatan, and the NEIMANs were there at about the same time. My
father, Herman DONCHIN, was born in Lund in 1907 after his parents and
siblings had migrated there >from Pikeliai, Lithuania. In 1911 the whole
DONCHIN family migrated to Jersey City, New Jersey, U.S.A. My grandparents
were Boruch Chaim (Bernard) DONCHIN and Gittel (Gertrude) NEIMAN DONCHIN.
I know that there were some NEIMANs in Lund, and I'm supposing that they,
too, had come >from Pikeliai and were related to my grandmother.
I do not have any additional information on the Donchins, but I have some
information about the NEIMAN/NEUMAN/NEWMAN family. According to what I have
learned there were seven brothers:

* Sam NEIMAN aka NEWMAN (only half brother, had another mother),
emigrated >from Pikeliai to Chicago, Illinois.
* Zalman aka Selman NEUMAN, born in 1878 in Pikeliai, emigrated
to Lund and then moved to Stockholm, died in 1947. He had at
least five children.
* Itzig NEYMAN aka Isak NEUMAN, born in 1884 in Pikeliai,
emigrated to Lund, Sweden.
* Kalman aka Salomon NEUMAN, born in 1885 in Pikeliai, emigrated
to Lund, Sweden.
* Pimcha NEIMAN aka Philip NEWMAN, emigrated >from Pikeliai to USA.
* Herman NEIMAN aka NEWMAN, emigrated >from Pikeliai to USA.
* Nathan NEIMAN aka NEWMAN, emigrated >from Pikeliai to Sweden and
then to USA.

There were also three other Neumans in Sweden which I believe were cousins
of the above:

* Abraham Beer NEIMANN, born in 1855, emigrated >from Pikeliai to Lund,
Sweden.
* Josef NEUMAN, born in 1886 in Pikeliai, emigrated to Lund and then
moved on to Norrköping, Trollhättan and Linköping.
* David NEUMAN, born in Pikeliai, emigrated to Sweden where he settled
in Vänersborg and had five children.

I have some additional information on the descendants of Selman and David,
which I can e-mail you privately.
