Re: Landau family 18-19th centuries #poland


Isak:  We have corresponded before about LANDAU family(ies).   Stanislaus (Salomon) LANDAU (1822-1898) was a son of Gerson LANDAU (ca.1796-1860) and Dobra (Carolina) KOHN of Czestochowa.  From my review of index records of Czestochowa, I believe that Gerson's parents were Marek LANDAU and Rochla LANDAU.  Presumably, Marek and Rochla were born in the 1770s (or a bit earlier).  I have not been able to get further back.

Since you are descended from a Gerson LANDAU (d.1793) after whom this Gerson may have been named, I have thought there may be a connection, but I have not found it.

I am in contact with members of this family and their family has the story, as do many, that they are descended from the Noda b'Jehuda.

All the best,
