I'm looking for assistance with a brick wall in Galicia. My g-gf David
HAUSMAN (1866-1945) was said to have come >from Stryy, but I
find no records for him before the birth in Rozdol in 1892 of his first
child, my gm Etel. Nor can I find any records for David's father
I did find the 1886 death record for a Nuchim HAUSMAN, son of
Hersz and Nechuma, stating that he was 90 years old. My theory is
that my gg-gf Hersh was a son of Nuchim, named after Nuchim's
father, but I have no evidence to support the theory.
There are other HAUSMAN families >from the area, descended >from
at least five documented children of Nuchim and his wife Czarna.
One of these children is a different David HAUSMAN (1857-1929),
presumably named after the same ancestor as my g-gf. I've
exchanged info with living descendants of this David's brothers
Leib and Aron but can't connect my family tree to theirs, at least
Help will be very much appreciated! Please respond privately to the
e-mail address below.
