My grandfather, Shlomo Dovid Brzeskowski was born in 1850 in Wroclavek,a small
town on the Vistula River about 120 miles East of Poznan.His parents were
Yitzchak and Feyge Yitta.
He was orphaned at an early age and adopted by POZNANSKI relatives who later
took the surname POSNER in the USA.,as he also later did here.
He married Gittel MEIZNER and they came with children, to NJ about 1907 to
accept the pulpit of Congregation Tiffereth Israel where he served until his
death in 1935.
While still in Poland he was a Mizrachi delegate to the 5th Zionist Congress
in Basel and
I have transcribed his remarks there, which I found at the Central Archives in
I am now beginning to search for links to his birth family, BRZEWSKOWSKI and
any and all suggestions and references.
