RE: KURTZMAN (USA); KURZMANN (UKRAINE/GALICIA)
I AM HOPING TO RECEIVE REPLIES TO MY RESEARCH ON THE FOLLOWING:
Kurtzman - My ggf/ggm, gf & 1 sibling arrived at Ellis Island 12/05/1910 on
the ss Lapland
The older siblings had come to NY/NJ prior. The family was >from Jaslo (now
however my gggf/gggm on my ggm's side were >from Drohobych. The gggf/gggm
Davida Markusa and Tessy Graslerow (not necessarily born in Drohobych).
My ggf/ggm were Moses Josef Kurzmann & Sussla Markusa Kurzmann. My ggf may
have worked in a refinery in Nieglowicach.
My grandfather was born in Jaslo March 16, 1896. His godfather was
a witness was Moses Rosner (probably worked with my ggf in the refinery),
the mohl was
Selig Muller, a businessman >from Jaslo.
In addition, one of my great aunts was Beila (Berta) Kurzman, born in
Drohobych June 1889
and married in Jaslo 10/31/09 to Markus Kliwanski (Marcus/Morris Klevens).
My grandfather & his parents settled in Newark, NJ, however some of the
siblings went to
NY and Boston with their spouses.
If anyone thinks they have any connection to my family or any of the names
I'd like to hear >from you. Any information on the shetl of Jaslo would also
be of interest.
