JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Which Ostrah did my ancestor come from #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>

In my family's handwritten yichus page it is written that my
ggggrandfather, Israel ROSENBAUM lived in Ostrah and was a talmid (follower)
of Reb' Yehoshua Heschel of Apta.

The above Israel was a son (or son-in-law) of a Reb' Yosef (Rav ?) of
Breznica who was a son (probably son-in-law) of Shmuel , Rav of Kremenetz
and a descendant of both the Maharal (through Reb Naftali KATZ-Smichas
Chachomim) and the Maharshal (through the KLAUSNER family).

My questions:

Can anyone suggest , >from the above information which Ostrah he was >from as
I've seen several Ostrah's refered to.

Do the above names fit into any other member of this group. I've been in
touch with the group reseaching the KLAUSNERs but their information on my
branch (children of the above Shmuel) comes >from me and I would appreciate
other corraborating sources.

Thank you and Shabbat Shalom
