I am trying to locate people with surname LIEBMAN(N) in Bacs-Bodrog
or surrounding counties of Hungary that may be ancestors of mine.
My grandmother, Eva LIEBMANN (born about 1892) and her father (born
about 1867) immigrated >from the town of Sajkasszentivan, Hungary
(today, Sajkas, Serbia) to Ellis Island, New York. They left the
port of Fiume, Hungary (today, Rijeka, Croatia) on SS Ivernia on 3
June 1914 and arrived in New York on 22 June 1914.
Based on my research, Eva and David LIEBMANN planned to stay with
David's brother, Georg(e) LIEBMANN, when they arrived in St. Louis
in 1914. Indeed, the 1917 St. Louis Missouri City Directory does
show a David and George LIEBMANN as living (working?) at 940
Any assistance in locating my LIEBMANN ancestors would be much
appreciated. It is possible they were not of Jewish ancestry, but
given their surname, this seems unlikely.
Shalom and thank you,
