Re: COHENS and GOLDBERGS from Sakiai, Lithuania #lithuania #unitedkingdom

Hi Angie, my family has deep roots in Sakiai, and then in the UK.  I believe we are connected to your Goldberg family.  My great grandmother was Esther Dvora Fellman.  Her parents were Shepsel Wolf Felman and Mera Ryvka "Miriam" Berkman(was Beniaminovich way back).   Miriam owned a tavern, and Shepsel Wolf (Shabtai Zvi) was very involved in the community: he was often a witness for Bris ceremonies and marriages.  Through my recent searches, I have been in touch with GOLDA ZEWI(from Turku, Finland), who has a picture of a big gathering of relatives/wedding:  her family are GOLDBERGs.  She would be great to get in touch with.  She has pictures and is a note from Shepsel to her ancestor Solomon Goldberg(Schlome Zwi "Salomon" 1878 Sakiai-1961 Turku, Finland.), "from your best cousin" in Yiddish.  We have not been able to figure out the Goldberg-Fellman connection, but we know they were cousins.  I'm happy to share my tree with you if you're interested.  I'm on Ancestry and MyHeritage.  (just did DNA on My Heritage).  Salomon's parents were Israel Reuven Goldberg and Chana Golde Bolshem.   

Warmly, Judy Bowman
