I'd like to connect with anyone who has family named =
JOSEFOVITS/JOSEPOVITS/ JOSEPHOWICS etc. f>from Maramarossziget (now =
Sighetu Marmatiei, Romania). Dvoyra JOSEFOVITS and Beris KAHAN were my =
great-grandparents. Dvoyra was born in Sziget in 1837 and was the =
daughter of Hers (probably Tzvi Hersh) and Rikel DUB. Her siblings =
included Iczik b. abt 1843, Markus (Marton?) b. abt 1845, and another =
son named Eij? b. 1854. =20
Iczik married Lea STEINER f. TArna and had about 14 children, most of =
whom came to NYC. Please contact me if any of this sounds familiar and =
I can provide details.
Likely that some descendants may have changed the name to JOSEPHS, =
JOSEPH, or something similar. Several are buried in the Maramaros =
Sziget Lodge section at Mount Hebron along with my grandparents and =
other of my KAHAN relatives. =20
Please contact me off-list.
