I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for less than
My paternal relatives came >from the Ukraine (the Kiev and Volhynia region,
primarily) and maternal family lived in the Lomza Gubernia of Poland. One
branch of this maternal side may have either originated in Germany prior to
going to Poland, but this is uncertain.
What I do know is that one of my great aunts Rebekkah (Ruth) LANGUS,
daughter of Froim and Dwejra GABELMAN, moved >from Rajgrod, Poland to Germany
before coming to the US in 1920's. She was born in 1901.
I don't know where she lived in Germany, but the town listed in the Ellis
Island database is "Przyroscheln." Couldn't find that in Jewish Gen shtetl
seekers, so the spelling must be way off. Any ideas where that might be?
The last bit of information is that the US Holocaust Museum database listed
2 people with this surname: Rolf and Siegfried LANGUS. Both were apparently
from the Dresden Memorial book.Anyone have LANGUS in their family tree or know what town Przyroscheln might
have been? Thank you very much,
