Re: Ancestry of Rose GELLER/LERNER #ukraine

Arthur,
To add to the confusion:
1. Some of the LIMONCHIKs up in Montreal changed their name to LERNER.
2. One of my cousins on my father's side married into a LERNER family from
Kamenetz (Ann and Robert Lerner now living in Del Ray Beach, FL. Have not
really had the time to delve into this, but we certainly need to.

Jeff

p.s. In the previous generation there was also a famous liberal writer
named Max LERNER (who, however, usually tried to hide his Jewish
ancestry). Do you have any idea if he is >from our area?

Subject: Ancestry of Rose GELLER

I'm seeking a solution to a puzzle caused by conflicting data and stories
about my step great grandmother. Here's what I know about a grand lady
known as Reisel Rose GELLER to her descendants -
1 - She was the third wife of Gershon GOLDSMAN, who was born about 1820 in
Zhvanets, Podolia, Ukraine and he likely married her there.
2 - She bore 4 children to Gershon there - Ester 1878, Morris 1880, Dora
1883 and Hyman 1886. The children migrated to Sokolets, Podolia, and then
to Montreal, Buffalo, etc. The descendants of these children all told that
their grandmother was known as Rose GELLER, wife # 3 of Gershon GOLDSMAN.
3 - Hyman's marriage certificate of 1913 states that he was the son of the
late Alter GOLDSMAN and the late Rose GELLER.
4 - (but) The marriage certificate of Morris G. to Bertha Dosberg, 1905 in
Buffalo, states:- Father: Gershon GOLDSMAN, Mother: Rosie LERNER, (but
certainly the same Rose, a.k.a. GELLER). .

In searching bothe the Rootsweb and Ancestry SSDI databases today, I
noticed that a relative whose records I had previously fouond in both, is
now listed in neither. Practically speaking, this suggests that if we
can't find individuals the first time around, it might pay to keep trying
every quarter or so.

Still, I find it odd. Anyone have any knowledge as to why this would

Hello Genners,

about my step great grandmother. Here's what I know about a grand lady

1 - She was the third wife of Gershon GOLDSMAN, who was born about 1820 in

2 - She bore 4 children to Gershon there - Ester 1878, Morris 1880, Dora

to Montreal, Buffalo, etc. The descendants of these children all told that
their grandmother was known as Rose GELLER, wife # 3 of Gershon GOLDSMAN.
3 - Hyman's marriage certificate of 1913 states that he was the son of the
late Alter GOLDSMAN and the late Rose GELLER.
4 - (but) The marriage certificate of Morris G. to Bertha Dosberg, 1905 in
Buffalo, states:- Father: Gershon GOLDSMAN, Mother: Rosie LERNER, (but
certainly the same Rose, a.k.a. GELLER). .
5 - Fellow researcher Jeff KNISHBACHER writes that his kin, Rukhya Rose
TISSENBAUM, daughter of Shlomo Yeshaya, married Fishel GELLER and had 5
children with him and than died (in childbirth?)..
6 - There were LERNERs in the GOLDSMAN family - Gershon's wife # 1 was
Chana whom he divorced and she married Issac LERNER and they had a son
Morris LERNER. Morris was the first husband of Dora GOLDSMAN (the same
Dora who was the 3rd child of Rose and Gershon, see 2 above). (Issac
LERNER and Rose GELLER were about the same age).

And now, the puzzle -

a. Was Rose the daughter of a TISSENBAUM or a GELLER or a LERNER family?
b. Why was the same Rose named GELLER on Hyman's certificate and LERNER on
Morris' certificate?
c. If Rose was the daughter of a TISSENBAUM , why wasn't this, her maiden
name, given on the marriage certificates?
d. Was Rose married to a GELLER and/or a LERNER before or after her
marriage to Gershon GOLDSMAN?

Can anyone shed any light on the above? Any info will be very much
appreciated by all.

I know my great-grandfather's father's name as it was on his death
certificate. (Samuel Males' father was Isaac Malis.) However,
great-grandfather's mother is marked unknown. I know the
great-great-grandparents lived in Warsaw. I know that my
great-great-grandfather is buried in the Warsaw Jewish Cemetery.

The problem is figuring out who his wife was. There are 2 women buried in
the Warsaw Jewish Cemetery with our surname, Malis.

What time periode are you talking about? Talking about gggrandparents I
presume it's sometime in the 19th century. For what it's worth I can
think of a few avenues to take:

1. Can you get the death certificates of one or both MALIS women? If a
married person dies it's usually mentioned that she/he leaves behind a
widowed spouse by the name of..., often also names of children are
mentioned.

2. Knowing the burials of the two MALIS women presumably should give you
their given names, ages and years of death. That in itself might help
eliminate one of them.

3. If your great-grandfather or his siblings had daughters and you know
their given names and years of birth, those names and birth years could
give you a good clue as to which MALIS woman is "yours".

Good luck

Thank you for your help. My great-great-grandfather who is buried in the
Warsaw Jewish Cemetery died in 1901.

1. The problem is that, as the Nazis destroyed all records (as far as I
know), where else can I obtain records on these family members. How would I
obtain death certificates?
2. I only know of these 2 women >from the JRI on-line database. I haven't yet
ordered their tombstone pictures. Actually, on my great-great-grandfather's
tombstone it only indicates when he died and not his birth or total number
of years lived. Likewise, I don't even know for sure if my
great-great-grandfather's wife was buried in the Warsaw Jewish Cemetery,
although I have no reason to assume otherwise.
3. My great-grandfather had 2 sisters. I only know this >from a family
portrait. However, his mom is in the picture with them + they wouldn't name
after her while she was still alive. The only "clue" raised by a 2nd cousin
of mine is that her grandmother (my father's aunt) had a 2nd name which is
the name of one of these 2 female Malis family members. So, possibly, she
was named after her grandmother >from Warsaw - then again, maybe not.

I was sort of hoping there was some outside reference, some other place
where records were kept. Any other ideas? I feel like some sort of
detective.

Thanks.
