JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen ROTSZYLD from Belchatow and Piotrkow #general


I am looking for present day descendants of the ROTSZYLD (Polish spelling of
Rothschild) family of Belchatow and Piotrkow (both in central Poland, near Lodz).
I have already looked at JRI-Poland (and ordered relevant documents that were
order-able) and put this name on JGFF.

However, I thought there might be some folks reading this who knew about this
family, or might know someone who is likely to have connections to this family.

I can trace this family to Fajwel ROTSZYLD of Belchatow, who may have had multiple
children, but the only one I know of is Szamaj ROTSZYLD (whose mother was Bluma of
Piotrkow). Fajwel lived >from about 1780 to the 1840's. Szamaj lived >from 1807 to
about 1880 and died in Lodz. Szamaj was the half-brother of Yankel BLUMENZON (1795-
1885), a rabbi of Widoma, Poland, and my 4th great grandfather. Szamaj had many
children. The only descendants I know of though seemed to have all been killed
during the Holocaust.

This family also had relatives in Zdunska Wola, Sieradz and Przedborz. Some other
related names are: GLOGOWSKI, HENDELES
