My Krochmal Family Puzzle #poland

Steve Jaron
 

My fellow Galitzianers,

Let me first apologize if this seems confusing...that's because it is...

Also let me start off by saying the following...yes I know Krochmal is
a common surname and that it means starch. Yes I know that no matter
what family rumor may be, I may actually not be connected to Nachman
Krochmal, however I am trying to prove or disprove this.

I have pieces of a of puzzle I need help figuring out. As in the
past I am asking for assistance in figuring out my Krochmal ancestry.
With the addition of new records on the All-Galicia Database (AGD) and
the JRI-Poland (JRI) indexes I believe I now have the birth date for
my oldest known and verifiable Krochmal ancestor, Hirsch Leib
Krochmal. On JRI I found the death record for him which lists his age
at death. While searching AGD I found a Layb Krochmil who appears to
be the correct person as his birthdate is close to what it should be
according to JRI. This Layb was apparently born in Zloczow in House
134. According to AGD the other Krochmals living at that house were
Abraham (the father based on age?), Lazer, Rebeka, Chaym, and Kalman.
So far I have not been successful in finding anything on Layb's
siblings. The house number is important because there was another
family living there, the family of Schimson Sirkis (Sirkus on JRI).

This is important because Schimson was married to a woman named Race
(or Rose?) Krochmal. Their grandson Simon married the previously
mentioned Hirsch Leib's daughter Hudel. A few of my oldest Krochmal
family members have mentioned that Simon and Adele were some degree of
cousin. I believe that the previously mentioned father of Hirsch,
Abraham, is the Abraham on JRI who was married to woman named Udel,
who could be Hudel's namesake.

As I also previously mentioned Abraham had a son named Lazer born in
1839, and there was a Leiser who lived 1766 to 1836 - so there is also
another possible namesake which would possibly make Abraham's father
Leiser. In the Zloczow index on JRI there are two individuals who
have children named Abraham Aron who I hypothesize are also children
of Abraham - Moses who was married to a Lybe Wegweiser and Marjem who
was married to a Leiber Kibrik.

Based on what I am finding I believe that Leiser had a brother Aron
who had two children Briene and Liba. Leiser may have also had two
other children Peretz married to Elke Brane Bresler and Markus married
to Bine Lea. Peretz had a son named Israel. Markus had two children -
Abraham Aron and Malka. I was able to find more on Markus' descendants
on Geni plus I am not really working forward at the moment.

The even stranger thing here is that Abraham, the son of Leiser, was
born at about the right time to be the son of Nachman Krochmal since
his son Abraham also appears to have been born in or around 1801. But
lets put a pin in that and move on.

What has made my research more complicated is the recent find of my
great grandfather's uncle Oscar Rothstein's descendants. The one
descendant told me that Oscar's wife Rose was born Krochmal. However
I have been unable to find any trace of her on JRI or AGD and any one
who probably did know anything more is passed on.

The next piece of my puzzle involves a Krochmal family that lives here
in Pittsburgh. When my mother was younger she had a teacher whose
married name was Krochmal and one day my grandfather and the teacher's
husband got together and figured out that they were connected.
However anyone who actually knew the connection is passed on. The
father-in-law of the teacher was Meier Krochmal born in Berezhany, the
son of Schulim Krochmal who was >from Zloczow. I hypothesize that
Schulim is the son of the above mentioned Moses and Lybe because he
had a son named Moses and a daughter named Lybe. As a side note for
anyone in or >from the Western Pennsylvania area - Schulim's second
wife is >from the family that founded Giant Eagle.

Another Krochmal I am trying to figure out if they are connected is
Wilhelm Krochmal, who is listed in the Tarnopol index on JRI.
Unfortunately the records found there only list the mother's parents,
not the father. Wilhelm was married to Rosa Deutsch and had a
daughter Adella (my 3rd great Aunt Hudel's Americanized name.)

There is also a Leib Krochmal who was married to a Sime Ruchel Dligacz
and was >from Podwolcyzka. His descendants have actually been in
contact with members of my Krochmal family group trying to find a
connection if any.

Lastly is the big question - Nachman Krochmal. As I stated earlier, I
know I may or may not be connected however I would like to
definitively prove this. Especially since I have found a few
descendants of his and I have found that the Jacobi papers are missing
some information. In my research I have found that he had 3 siblings
- Shalom, Gershon, and Fraida. Fraida is the only one I know a little
about as I found one of her descendants in Ohio. Now to make things
more difficult is the mystery of Nachman Krochmal's children.

According to various sources he had anywhere >from three to seven
children. According to one of the world's leading genealogists on the
subject, Paul Jacobi, he had three children - Abraham who was also
leading Jewish philosopher in Frankfurt, had one known daughter Anna;
Joseph who apparently moved to Odessa and had a son who was a Russian
General; and Rosalie who married Henry Biegeleisen, a Polish historian
and ethnographer with whom she had several sons who were baptized. I
recently found a Biegeleisen descendant and would like to help him out
if I can. While searching through Google Books I found two other
children - Kunigunde who married Nathan Horowitz >from the Horowitz
Rabbinical dynasty and with whom Nachman went to live in Tarnopol
after the death of his wife; and Reise whom I don't know anything else
about. Lastly there may have also been a child by the name of Aaron.
According to a cousin I am descended >from either Aaron or Abraham.
How, if at all, does he and his family fit into all of this?

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for any help you can
provide, it is greatly appreciated. Please also don't hesitate to ask
me questons if you need clarification on what I am looking for.

New York Genealogy Class will begin June 1 #lithuania

Phyllis Kramer
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated -- naturalization, probate, landsmanshaften,
voters registration, newspapers, court cases -- and we will note which
documents will only be found on-site at various archives. We include
suggestions on where to research, where to wander and how to get
there. Students will have the opportunity to select a branch to
research and receive suggestions >from the instructor.

This 4 week Intermediate level genealogy course has 7 text lessons you
can download; there are no specific times for the course; students
interact with the instructor though a 24/7 FORUM, in a query and
answer format. To see a short video on how our courses work, go to
www.jewishgen.org/education and view the video at the very bottom of
the page. Note: these are intermediate genealogy topics and if you
wish to pursue another U.S. city, the instructor will be happy to work
with you.

Requirements: Students must feel comfortable browsing the web and
downloading files, have 5-10 hours available each week and should
select a family where census and vital records are already documented.
Tuition is $100 (there are no waivers for this course); registration
is open; go to www.JewishGen.org/education and click on the enrollment
link. For questions, please email JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org

ViewMate photograph - Family portrait, Zagare late 1920s #lithuania

Segal, Aron <Aron.Segal@...>
 

I have posted in ViewMate a photograph taken in Zagare, Lithuania in the
mid-late 1920s.

My aunt, Malka SEGAL (1905-1984)is in the back row, second >from left.

She was the daughter of Moisey SEGAL and Leya (nee ZUSMAN) and the elder
sister of Aiyzik and my father, Hirsh (Girsh) SEGAL.

I do not know any of the other people in the photograph but I am assuming
that they are family members but not her parents or her two brothers.

Does anyone recognise anyone else in the photograph?

It's located on ViewMate at the following address:
