BROMBERG and RUBENSZTEJN connections #rabbinic

sbloom@...
 

I am looking to confirm (or deny) a specific connection between the
RUBENSZTEJN family of Przedborz/Lublin and the BROMBERG family of
Piotrkow/Kozienice.

A distant BLUMENSON cousin of mine married into the family of Getzel
RUBENSZTEJN, who, according to Polish records, married to Ryfka
BROMBERG (his second marriage) around 1860.
It looks as if she was >from Kozienice, so they probably moved to
Lublin for some reason other than just covenience of marriage and
family of the bride (rabbinic post?).

Looking at the records of Kozieneice, it looks as if Ryfka was
daughter of Ruven Baruch BROMBERG, and brother to David BROMBERG (b.
circa 1830).
She was previously married to Menashe KOZEN, who probably died, but
there may have been a divorce.

Can anyone confirm whether or not this is the same David BROMBERG who
was known as David Yitzhak ben Ruven BROMBERG, and was a rabbi in Piotrkow?

Additionally, I know that Getzel Rubensztejn was son of Szulim (b.
about 1790) . Does anyone know whether this family is connected to
the rabbinic RUBENSZTEJN family of Konskie (traces back to 1735,
with birth of Emmanuel RUBENSZTEJN)?

Feel free to contact me privately unless there is general information
that may interest the group.

Re: How do i start research to see if my family was in Spain before 1492 #sephardic

Kohn <kohn@...>
 

My father's mother had a similar tradition, that they were >from Spain.

A family friend found in the archives of Bevis Marks Sephardic synagogue
in London, records of a family with the same name (Lees) that he said
was the same family.

Finally several of my male cousins on that side did DNA testing and the
results came back that the patrilineal line originated in Spain.

Maybe this might help you in some way.

My feeling otherwise is that if you are told by your father that your
family is Sephardic, you are Sephardic and you should follow the
minhagim (customs) of your father as best as you can.

I did find a Shevach family in Lodz Poland. Many of the Chassidic
families in Lodz were >from Turkey (my cousin whose father was Nieditch
in Poland whose family name was Modiano in Salonika; my mother's side
who were Markovitch in Lodz who were Moreno in Oran Algeria; etc. The
wife of the Imrei Emes, the Rebbe of Gora was >from a Sephardic family
from Oran also.
All the best to you,
