Westerman, Weiner, Gutman #latvia

Just a few days till we travel to the UK and Europe (Latvia in late May),
and now I have a copy of my family tree. Perhaps I could learn something
more over there if I had a few more leads.

My ggparents were cousins. They were Lieba Weiner b1865 and Leib Yehuda
Gutman b1853, both of Friedrichstadt (Jaunjelgava).

Their mothers were sisters. Lieba's parents were Riva Westerman and Abraham
Weiner. Leib's parents were Frada Westerman and Helman Gutman. Presumably
all born 1830's - 40's.

Riva and Frada Westerman's parents were Sara and Lippe Westerman, presumably
born 1800's -1810's.

Do any of these names occur in anyone else's family tree?

Are there Gutman's in anyone's family that far back? I have no connections
for Helman Gutman.

All spellings are approximate. I'd appreciate any leads.

It would be worthwhile for Sue to contact Yael Barenholz,
<yaelbar@netvision.net.il>, of Israel, who is also researching the unusual
surnames Westerman and Mirvis.

Dear Sue and all others,

Regarding the messages some weeks ago about Sue's Westerman-ancestors from
Latvia I can perhaps give some additional information on eventual relatives
of hers in Sweden. I have records on a woman named Annie GISSIN and her
descendants. She was born in 1913 in Libau as the daughter of Samuel GISSIN
and Sonja WESTERMANN!

I have no more information on her parents or eventual siblings, but I have
information on her descendants (which I can e-mail to you Sue). Maybe they
can tell you more about the Westermann-family!

Best regards,

Adam Katzeff,
