My grandfather, Chil Pinkwas DJAMENT, born in Cmielow in 10 Oct 1905, emigrated
to Brazil in 1930. His sister, Fajga, did the same. Their parents were Moszek
Lejba Djament and Cyrla. I don't know Cyrla's maiden name.
On his Polish ID, Chil referred to one Lejba LichtensztAjn in case of a serious
accident. The relationship between both is unclear - the document reads
something similar, but not exactly, to brother (brat) or nephew (bratanek).
This text was posted recently on ViewMate (ID 52099).
I also have a 1931 picture of two young LichtensztEjn children - Ruchla and
Mosiek - sent as a memento to "uncle Djament".
from the above, can anyone identify the connection so that I can try to obtainadditional info on Chil Pinkwas and his family? Initially I wanted to know if
he and Fajga had other brothers/sisters, what his mother Cyrla's maiden name
was and hopefully find out about Chil's grandparents.
In JRI I found a 1884 Nusen Mordka DYAMENT birth record >from Cmielow, where
Nusen's mother is Fajga LichtensztAjn. Seems a good lead, but I can't
establish a connection between this link and the one I'm researching. Hopefully
one JewishGener can help. Also, I found no vital records on PSA for Chil
Pinkwas or any of his parents.
Thanks in advance for any help,
