I am new to this SIG and have a question to help me with research on
my great grandfather Yossel LIPOWICZ ben Abram. The family has
always spoken about him being orphaned as a young child. We don't
know where he was born, but am beginning to think it was around the
area of Sokoly in Poland. He had several brothers and sisters and
one was a rabbi who died relatively young.
After losing his parents, Yossel "lived off the land," as my
grandfather told us and made his way to a Yeshiva, which apparently
was well known in the area.
He married Nechama MILEWICZ bat Moszk LIPSYC z Lejbka and finally
settled in Grajewo, in the Lomza gub of Poland. I have not heard of
a Yeshiva in Grajewo, and wondered if in fact, the town he went to
I would like to learn more about the Yeshiva's in the Lomza region
and if there is a way to research students.
Thank you very much.
