Dear darren

Thank you for your reply.

I saw the article on Breznice in Czech in the Encyclopedia Judaica and
to the best of my understanding there are two towns in northern
Ukraine which also are called Breznitz or similiar. The area which
these two are found was the area where the forefathers and children of
R' Yosef lived , so I presume that its in Northern Ukr.

Breznitz is Breznice in the Czech republic. It is located 69 Km SSW of

Jewish community -- with its own area, it housed the District Rabbi.

(PS. I assume you are looking for Breznitz as repeated in the body of
the message and not Beznitz as in the title as that would be a different
town)

I hope this helps.

In our family there is mention of a Rav Yosef (no family name)
presumably somewhere around the beginning of the 19th cent.

In one version of the tree this Rav Yosef is the Rav of Breznitz. In
all the trees he is a son-in-law of a grandson of Reb. Naftali KATZ,
author of the Smichas Chachamim, through the lineage of R' Shmuel =A0and
his son R' Arieh leib (his presumed father-in-law) who were Rabbis of
Kremenetz during the 18th cent. R' Yosef was the father of Israel (no
known family name-possibly ROSENBAUM) of Ostrog and a follower of the
Apter =A0Rav (Heschel). Yisrael's son, Yosef married into the family of
the Admo"r of Lechowitz (R' Aharon and Perl-marrying their daughter).

My interest lies primaily in identifying the above R' Yosef of
Breznitz. What town is this? What was his family name and any other
details about him. Published material as to our lineage end with the
above R' Arieh Leib of Kremenetz and don't come down to our
generation.

As mention above, I am in possesion of two family trees: One prepared
by the Jerusalem SCHECHTER family (my branch) and another by another
Jerusalem family ZEIVALD-PAPIRNE ( PAPIRNE being members of the
Kalin-Stolin Chassidic =A0group).

Myself and 2 teenage sons will be going to Latvia at the end of July
to visit our ancestral shtetel of Lutzin (Ludza).= We will be
traveling within Latvia with local guide and researcher, Mr Alex
Faigmanis.

I would appreciate any pointers on things to do there, people to see, etc.
