Dear RavSigers
I am looking for info concerning ancestors and in particular descendants
of R' Yitzchak Landau, who was AB"D of Krakow, Poland, during the years
1754-1768. Did he have a son named R' Yaakov ? Was R' Yaakov LANDAU of
Tarlow (1705-1777) his son?
I would appreciate any information concerning this branch of the Landaus.

If you are referring to the Rabbi Yitzchak Landau who was the
fatherinlaw of my ancestor the Noda B'yehuda then it would
certainly fit in >from everything I can see as he indeed did
have a son Rabbi Yaakov as stated in the Unbroken Chain of Neil
Rosenstein and the places and dates seem to match. My father's
mother was the daughter of a Rabbi Zev Volf Prag (HaKohen) an
Aleksanderer Chasid >from Lodz. Either he or his wife or both
were descended >from the Noda B'yehuda. I would suspect he was
as his last name was Prag.
