Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Researching the KATZ family from the Pandelys Stetl and the DERMAN family from Kaunas #lithuania

jonathan goldstine

My grandfather, WILLIAM KATZ, was born in Pandelys around 1886 and
emigrated to NYC in the early 1900s. He owned a shoe store in Manhattan
for many years on Columbus Ave. his parents were JOSEPH and FANNIE BRILL.
His sister, SARA MASHE, married LOUIS DERMAN, who I think was >from Kaunas
stetl based on NYC records. WILLIAM had a younger brother, NATHAH, who
emigrated to NYC in the early 1900s.

Any advice or pointers on research are much appreciated.

I have joined the Kaunas and Zarasai DRGs and am working to learn about
Lithuanian Jewish genealogy.

I have done autosomal dna with family tree dna.
