INTRO - researching KATZ, SEELIG, BERLAK from Prussia + Berlin #germany

Bess Taylor
 

Hello, GerSigs.

I'm new. I've been doing genealogical research for a few years. I
consider myself beginner-intermediate level.
I live in Corvallis, Oregon, USA. I'm planning to move to Kingston,
NY, USA in the near future.
My first language is English. I also understand, speak, read some Swedish.
My primary research goals right now (with respect to those of my
ancestors who lived in Germany and Prussia) are as follows:

To find out when Recha / Rebecca (KATZ) SEELIG (born in Nakel, lived
in Posen and Berlin) - my second great grandmother - died and her
cause of death

To find out the names of the parents of Michaelis Abraham KATZ (born
in Rogasen, lived in Posen, later Berlin) - my third great grandfather

To find out the names of the parents of Isaak SEELIG (born in Posen,
died in Posen) - my fourth great grandfather

To find out the names of the parents of Ernestina (MANNHEIM) SEELIG
(born in Kiszkowo, lived in Posen, died in Berlin) - my fourth great
grandmother

To find out what the connection is between my great grandfather,
Ernest SEELIG (born in Posen, immigrated >from Berlin to NY), and his
relative, Helena CAROLINE (of Pompano Beach, FL, USA)

To find out what the relationship is between my known SEELIG
ancestors/relatives and Leopold SEELIG (of Berlin), who signed the
death certificates of most of these relatives

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 795888.

The family names and ancestral towns (with some additional info) that
I've entered in the JGFF are as follows:

SEELIG - Ernest, born in Posen, immigrated >from Berlin to New York, NY in 1908
SEELIG - Recha (KATZ) (Ernest's mother), born in Nakel, lived in
Posen, later Berlin
SEELIG - Emil (Ernest's father), born in Posen, later lived in Berlin
SEELIG - Otto (Ernest's brother), born in Posen, lived in Berlin
SEELIG - Franziska (LEMMEN) (Otto's wife)
SEELIG - Ernestina (MANNHEIM) (Emil's mother), born in Kiszkowo, lived in Posen
SEELIG - Isaak (Emil's father), of Posen, hotelier
KATZ - Goldina/Goldchen/Golda (BERLAK) (Recha's mother), born in
Posen, died in Berlin (Parents: Wolf BERLAK, Ernestine ZIELINSKI)
KATZ - Michaelis Abraham (Recha's father), born in Rogasen, lived in
Posen and Berlin
CAROLINE - Helena, a cousin of Ernest SEELIG, according to my maternal
grandmother, with whom Helena was in contact

Looking forward to possibly hearing >from you and connecting with relatives,

Possible descendancy from R' Chaim of Volozhin #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I am trying to confirm a scribbled note which my great uncle wrote
that his wife was a descendant of R' Chaim of Volozhin. I have
searched various published trees of his family and have not found a
connection. This of course does prove that there wasn't a connection
as I know that many rabbinical trees do not include children who did
not become well known Rabbi. This was told to me by a member of the
SOLOVEITCHIK family which incidently are also connected to R' Chaim.

The details of my family are as follows:

My great great grandmother, Sarah Hinde KANTOR, the presumed
descendant, came to Jerusalem in the 1870s as a widow with 4 orphans.
Her deceased husband Shlomo was a Chazzan in Pinsk/Karlin.. Possibly
the most well known ofthe 4 was R' Chaim Dov KANTOR who lived in
Moshava Mayer Shfeya near Zichron Yacov and was the masgiach of the
yekev (winery) there.

Supposedly Sarah Hinde (or her mother) was an orphan at the time of
her wedding and R' Itzaleh, R' Chaim's son, took her to the chuppa
(canopy instead of her late parents. In an unconfirm note there
appears the name LANDAU which is very interesting as Itzaleh had a
daughter who was married to a R' Shmuel LANDAU and they both died at
an early age leaving at least one little daughter. I was contacted by
a descendant of this daughter many years ago butcouldn't find a
connection to them. I was thinking that possibly the above LANDAUs
may have had other children who do not appear in published trees of
this family.

Another theory may be that we are connected to a little known son of
R' Chaim, Yoseph who married a woman >from Shershev. He does not appear
in most published trees, possibly because he, or more probably his
son, became a chassid, which was not "politically correct" in those
circles.

I have checked with descendants of the above Chaim Dov but they are
not aware of a family connection to the Volozhin family except a
possibility that he may have been named for R' Chaim of Volozhin.

Anyone have any toughts or comments on the above?

TIA
